Tokyo DisneySea


Tokyo DisneySea is part of the Tokyo Disney Resort consisting of DisneyLand and DisneySea. Both are great places for families, but if you want to feel like a kid, DisneySea is the way to go.

A Magical Place for Children and Adults Alike

dis1Tokyo DisneySea has some amazing places that will make even the most serious "mature" adult feel like a kid again. This has been said about a lot of things, but this one is the real deal. My husband and I took our infant there, and even I found myself looking around at everything as if I were a three year old again. The different areas of the park are so well done and there is much more detail visible in DisneySea than there is in the adjoining DisneyLand. Some of the areas include settings from The Little Mermaid, Aladin, Duffy, 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, and Indiana Jones with some Mexican culture mixed in. The enterance to the park is set back in early New York and seems strange at first, but is definitely what takes you into the illusion from the very beginning. If you are there and don't like children, there is alcoholic beverages served within the park to help ease the stress. This is not available in DisneyLand.

The Most Magical of Them All

dis2While I'm not trying to be biased, the best part by far of the park is the Mermaid Lagoon. This is mainly an indoor area that is so colorful and full of surprises around every turn. The shapes of the walls and all of the rides truly make you feel as though you are playing in a coral reef with the fish. The details are remarkable and the lighting only adds to the effects. There is a cafe inside that displays its menu options in huge clam shells while Sebastian sings classic songs like "Under the Sea" and "Kiss de Girl." All of this is just within Triton's Kingdom, the indoor part. Outside the kingdom there are many sculptures and formations that look so bizarre that they acutally resemble things found under the sea.

Fun for the Whole Family

dis3As mentioned earlier, my husband and I took our infant there. While there wasn't many rides that we could go on with him, there were more here than in DisneyLand. Who had time to wait in line for rides though with all there was to see. For a baby who sleeps constantly, he was awake and just as mesmerized by everything as we were. The best way to do the park with a small child is to have a hotel nearby where you can take a break and let the child(ren) take a nap and be energized to go back for more. The park lit up at night is definitely worth the trip back after dark. Some parts of the park are, believe it or not, even more impressive at night with the lights built in to emphasize things that you may have missed at first glance in the daylight.
