Mermaid Lagoon is the one port at Tokyo DisneySea that caters to young children. That’s not to say that teenagers and adults won’t get a smile from the whimsical atmosphere, but the attractions are simple and geared towards the little ones. The exterior of Mermaid Lagoon looks like Ariel’s underwater kingdom. Spiraling towers, in a … Continue reading "Mermaid Lagoon – Tokyo DisneySea"

Arabian Coast – Tokyo DisneySea

Posted on
Arabian Coast is a sprawling port full of minarets, colorful domes, pointed arches, and winding streets. The buildings all look like they were built out of sandstone and clay bricks. There is a sense of being very far away, in a hot and arid desert. If approaching Arabian Coast from Lost River Delta, the first … Continue reading "Arabian Coast – Tokyo DisneySea"

Tokyo DisneySea – Lost River Delta

Posted on
Deep in the jungles of 1930’s Central America you’ll find El Rio Perdido, “The Lost River.” This river actually splits Lost River Delta in half as it runs through a lush tropical forest, by ancient ruins, and finally, past a shanty town. This is an area ripe for discovery by the archeologists of the day. … Continue reading "Tokyo DisneySea – Lost River Delta"

Tokyo DisneySea – Port Discovery

Posted on
It’s difficult to describe Port Discovery. I’ve heard it called the “Tomorrowland” of DisneySea and the “Marina of the Future.” Either way, it weaves science and fantasy into an intriguing mix. The storyline for Port Discovery is that it’s home to the “Center for Weather Control.” Here, new experiments to manipulate the climate are always … Continue reading "Tokyo DisneySea – Port Discovery"

Tokyo DisneySea – Mediterranean Harbor

Posted on
I guess you could call Mediterranean Harbor the Main Street of Tokyo DisneySea. You enter this port of call by walking underneath the MiraCosta Hotel (instead of a train station), and to either side and beyond this walkway is an array of shops. There is a Japanese custom to bring gifts home to give to … Continue reading "Tokyo DisneySea – Mediterranean Harbor"

MiraCosta Hotel – Tokyo DisneySea

Posted on
My favorite Disney theme park, worldwide, is Tokyo DisneySea. I tell anyone who will listen, “You can pay your $58 admission, never go on one attraction, and you will still get your moneys’ worth. This park is so beautiful, so packed with detail, so lavish in scope that a person will walk from one land … Continue reading "MiraCosta Hotel – Tokyo DisneySea"

Tokyo Disneyland Resort

Posted on
From Hong Kong I flew to Japan for seven full days at the Tokyo Disney Resort. Before I start describing the parks, I’d like to give you a little background about the resort. In the late 1970’s, the Oriental Land Company approached Disney with the idea of building another Disneyland-type park in Tokyo. At the … Continue reading "Tokyo Disneyland Resort"
