Disneyland might not be the first thing that people think of when Tokyo is mentioned, but even so with an attendance of around 14million every year, there is clearly something there to see. With the unmistakeable icon of Cinderella's castle it is no surprise that so many people want to visit the Magic Kingdom. Ideal for children and adults who are still young at heart Disneyland is a great place to relax and become submerged in all your favourite aspects of everything relating to Disney.
So many people claim that Walt Disney is not for them, believing that it is for children or will be unbearably cheerful and colourful, but the theme parks offer such a variety of rides and sights that inspire the imagination and free the individual's sense of fun, that few people can avoid having a good time here. Once you are inside the gates the sense of fun is practically contagious and you will soon remember how much fun it was being a child. In total the park takes up 115acres of land and there are seven themed areas to visit. Fantasyland is home to Cinderella's castle and many of the Disney characters will be there to greet the young and older visitors. You will find yourself caught up in the familiar scenes from Disney films, bringing back memories of what life was like when you first watched that particular film.
Of course, Tokyo Disneyland's sister theme park, DisneySea, should not be forgotten. Depending on the type of ticket bought, many visitors can see both parks on the same trip. Not surprisingly, DisneySea has a nautical theme, with seven themed ports to explore. The Mermaid Lagoon, for example, is home to all things relating to The Little Mermaid and looks like King Titan's Palace. Just about everything that you would hope to see at a Disney theme park is there, but with an imaginative difference. Although Tokyo Disneyland is different to the other versions across the world there are similarities, but DisneySea offers something different and exciting. Both parks are located in Chiba, near Tokyo and are easily accessible.
