Port Discovery

Boat ride

Opening Date:
Sep 4, 2001

Aquatopia is an innovative trackless water ride, which uses the same local positioning system as Pooh's Hunny Hunt at neighbouring Tokyo Disneyland. The ride's name is derived from the Autopia attractions at many other Disney parks, which take guests on an on-rails car journey.

The "boats" actually travel on wheels, as the water is only a few inches deep. At several points in the journey, guests appear to be about to be sucked into whirlpools, with the lack of track adding to the sense of unpredictability.

Walt Disney World and the Disneyland Resort are home to many, many fantastic rides and attractions. Disney's parks in Paris, Tokyo and Hong Kong, though, have a lot to offer...

Tokyo DisneySea opened in 2001 as the second park of the rebranded Tokyo Disney Resort. A few months earlier, the original Disneyland Resort in California had received a second park in the form of Disney’s California Adventure, drawing inevitable comparison. DisneySea, however, was built with nearly four times the budget of its Californian sister, earning the prestigious title of the world’s most expensive theme park at over US $4 billion and making California Adventure all the more embarrassing.

The Best Flat Ride in a Disney Park

While using an extremely sophisticated trackless system, the experience is ultimately very light and fun. The main experience is wondering where the boat will go next. However, watching this dance of vehicles intricately moving in synchronization is just amazing, especially being a part of it. The "near misses" with water effects are really fun as well. It's just a treat, especially at night.
