Disneysea - Tokyo

DisneySea is amazingly detailed. You really do feel like you are in Venice or in Morocco, or just somewhere else entirely! The scenery is utterly amazing and so photogenic. We ate at the Casbah Food Court located in the Arabian Coast and the food was extremely delicious.


The Gondola boat ride was quite scenic, and the gondoliers actually sing. It’s a relaxing ride.It is a bit odd when half way through you see a giant volcano though!


My favourite ride in all the Disney parks is the Indiana Jones ride, and the DisneySea ride did not disappoint. We actually rode this as a single rider – which took all of 5 minutes to get on the ride – and that was because you had to go past all the railing to get to the front! Disney Sea has the Indiana Jones ride (Anaheim version) AND the Indiana Jones version that is in Euro Disney! The Euro Disney version in Disney Sea however is called ‘Raging Spirits’ and right next door to the Indiana Jones ride. It has had all the Indiana Jones stuff taken off and is just a roller coaster although similarly themed for the area its in. Apparently it's a rough ride! For those of you who don’t know what the Indiana Jones ride entails, you are basically in this jeep, that travels around volcanoes and things, narrow escapes and is a great ride. Tip: Don’t leave your sunglasses on!

20,000 Leagues under the Sea Ride – Unique again to DisneySea. You get into an old fashioned Submarine  and go on this journey, get attacked by a giant squid and see all these ‘aliens’ under water. It’s a cool ride. Very different. You are in a very enclosed space however so if you are claustrophobic, I would not recommend. I did notice there is a phone in there for emergencies. You do not actually go underwater.


Autopia – Unique again to DisneySea, you ride these watercraft. They are on a track, but it’s a bit hard to know where they will go next. Apparently it’s a better ride in the dark. You will get wet!

Fortress Explorations – And, yet again, another unique experience just at DisneySea, lots of castle rooms and lookouts to explore, and some very cool renaissance science to play around with (like moving planets around the room). Even a 16th Century Spanish Galleon is there to run amok.
And yes, the canons aren't real, but they make a very loud bang

In DisneySea there is a 16th Century Spanish Galleon to explore

SS Columbia ship in DisneySea, from the top floor, you can apparently see Mount Fuji, on a clear day. We went on a cloudy day, and didn’t see it unfortunately. But worth a look if the conditions are right. You can see it from the Bow of the SS Columbia.

Tritons Kingdom/Mermaid lagoon - Well, all I can say is this is paradise for young kids. Amazing. We could have spent all afternoon just here. All the rides are 'under the sea' and it certainly feels like it. There is also a huge playground, but not like other playgrounds, its got ropes, caves, caves where you find magic mirrors and treasures. All sorts of things. Very unusual.

Everywhere you go in Tokyo DisneySea, is the ever present Volcano, that blows its top every so often. This is the home of Mysterious Island.

The Magic Lamp Theatre, make sure you get an English Translator device, before the show. The show is in 3D/4D.

Toy Story Mania, this was the most popular ride in DisneySea. We got Fast Passes at 9am in the morning, to return at 8:30pm at night!

It was very hard to get up close with the Characters in the park. The lines don't seem to be orderly. Best place to see Mickey and Minnie Mouse is in their House!




Tokyo DisneySea Pins

 

There wasn't a huge selection of Disney Pins at all in DisneySea. This was about the only Pin you could get (above) in the park that was specific for DisneySea. It was however a very large pin - maybe 8cm tall in height.

Hope you enjoyed reading about Tokyo DisneySea. The rides are totally unique in the world and the place is so immersive - I had to keep reminding myself I was actually in Japan - not Morocco or Italy.
