Covering a 115-acre plot in Urayasu, Tokyo Disneyland is similar in style to the original Disneyland in California and Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom. It features the chain's standard hub-and-spoke layout, although guests enter via World Bazaar instead of the usual Main Street, USA. From there, they can reach Adventureland, Westernland (Tokyo Disneyland's equivalent of Frontierland), Fantasyland and Tomorrowland, along with the smaller Critter Country and Toontown. The park's most popular rides will be familiar to fans of Disney's other properties: Space Mountain, Big Thunder Mountain, Pirates of the Caribbean, Splash Mountain and Peter Pan's Flight, to name just a few. It does have a few originals of its own, though, including the innovative Pooh's Hunny Hunt and Monsters, Inc. Ride & Go Seek.

Park History

In an ambitious move, Disney agreed to build its first theme park outside of the US at the same time that it was constructing Epcot at Walt Disney World. Tokyo Disneyland threw open its gates in April 1983, and is owned by the Oriental Land Company, which licenses the attractions and characters from Disney. It has proven to be a spectacular success, and is currently ranked behind only the Magic Kingdom and Disneyland as the third most popular theme park in the world.
