Magic Kingdom

The Disney theme park dynasty was born amid the orange groves of Anaheim, but it’s since grown into a worldwide phenomenon.

If you’re wondering which park to aim for on your next visit, here are a few details to help you make your choice.

  • Tokyo DisneySea: 176 acres
  • Tokyo Disneyland: 115 acres


Tokyo DisneySea is regularly lauded as the best of Disney’s theme parks. It offers distinctive perks throughout, from gondola water transportation to the distinctive location of Hotel Miracosta right in the park. DisneySea’s Tower of Terror puts a distinct spin on the classic while offering its own rich storyline, while Sinbad’s Storybook Voyage brings a cast of more than 100 characters to life. You can easily fill several days here, but this is only part of Tokyo’s Disney delights.

Tokyo Disneyland is one of Disney’s “Magic Kingdom-style” parks. It offers classics like Tom Sawyer Island and Splash Mountain as well as innovative imaginings. Pooh’s Hunny Hunt in particular redefines the classic dark ride with the playful track-free ride system.

Disneyland Resort


Ticket Price:

  • 2-Day Adult Park Hopper: $244.00
  • 2-Day Child Park Hopper (Age 3-9): $232.00

Size: Two Parks

  • Disneyland: 85 acres
  • Disney California Adventure: 72 acres


Though these parks are among the smallest in the Disney lineup, they’re an unbeatable option if you’re after authentic Disney lore. This is truly where it all began. Disneyland is the only completed theme park that Walt Disney himself ever saw. For nostalgia, this is a top pick.

Attractions here skew toward the classics with Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, Disneyland Railroad, Dumbo the Flying Elephant, and the Enchanted Tiki Room solidly ensconced in Disneyland. Disney’s California Adventure has some more distinctive options. As it’s free from the Marvel restrictions on Walt Disney World, this park can offer highlights like Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT! And Guardians of the Galaxy – Monsters After Dark.
