Tokyo Disneyland/Disney Sea was such a blast! The weather wasn’t too hot nor too cold. The sun just peaked through the clouds ever so slightly. The park was pretty tranquil for an amusement park. There are two parks, Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo Disney Sea.

I’ll always remember the architecture. The themed buildings are beautiful and crafted so realistically. I do feel like I’ve been transported to another world. It has a hint of charm and a bit of storybook-like character, see picture below that seems to be modeled after an old street in another era:

They even have the “distressed” look down. It doesn’t look bad at all.

Let’s get to the exciting part of these memories, the rides. Their Tower of Terror looks different from the original in Disney California. In fact, the ride tells a completely different story from the Twilight Zone — but I won’t spoil it for you by telling you what it is… 😉 Let’s just say I think the Tiki Room is missing a member.

The ride is thrilling and comparable to the Disneyland California ride and it definitely reaches an intense climax.

Tokyo version of Tower of Terror. Look at me and my amateur photog skills with a giant lamp in the way

The other ride that I’d ride again is their Journey to the Center of the Earth ride. It’s really hard to miss. It stands tall just like Matterhorn in Disneyland Anaheim, but this one seems to fit in more with it’s surroundings

Tokyo Disneyland is on point with the aesthetics – I mean, look at the real smoke coming out of the faux volcano!

The line is an adventure  because you enter realistic looking caves to create the illusion that you’re descending into the center. There are some pretty weird looking creatures along the way as well. Not a big fan of sci-fi creatures.

There are other rides in the Disneyland section of Tokyo and they were fun as well. The food was definitely more diverse than the typical burger and fries that’s served in America. I’ll remember to take more pictures next time.

I found out that they have almost 7 different flavors of popcorn.

7.

It was time for me to exchange my US Dollars for some Japanese Yen and spend it all on the popcorn!

Can’t wait to go back again.
