The Walt Disney Company is praised all across the world for its different forms of entertainment. From media, studios, resorts, and of course their amusement parks. Disney’s best known parks are Disneyworld and Disneyland.

This weeks dreamy destination however is Disneyland in Tokyo!

Although the park’s architecture is based on Florida’s Magic kingdom, and Disneyland in California it is very distinct. Disneyland Tokyo was the first disney themed park outside of the United states, opening in 1983.

This amusement park features seasonal decorations, parades and seven themed lands.

World Bazaar, located at the main entrance to the park, is a covered shopping arcade lined by shops and restaurants. The area is designed like an early 20th century American town and serves as the park’s main shopping area where many guests stop on their way out of the park.

Tomorrowland explores the themes of outer space and future technologies. It is home to
popular attractions such as Space Mountain, Star Tours and Buzz Lightyear’s AstroBlasters.

Fantasyland is based on the classic animated films by Disney and is home to the iconic Cinderella’s Castle at the center of the park, as well as other characters and rides such as Peter Pan, Snow White, It’s A Small World and Pooh’s Hunny Hunt, an original Fantasyland attraction unique to Tokyo Disneyland.

Westernland is themed after the US western frontier along the Rivers of America. The area is home to the popular rollercoaster Big Thunder Mountain, while Tom Sawyer Island is located out in the middle of the river.

Adventureland includes attractions that encompass the spirit of adventure. Here you can join a jungle cruise, explore the Swiss Family Treehouse, ride the Western River Railroad and sail with the Pirates of the Caribbean.
