It takes all the best bits of the original Disneyland in California and Florida’s Magic Kingdom and weaves it together to create a distinctive east-meets-west experience. All the classic Disney-centric landmarks are also here! That includes Cinderella’s Castle and unique rides like Pooh’s Hunny Hunt and Monster’s Inc!

The resort’s undoubted appeal is with families with kids, and it certainly ramps up the cuteness factor in the captivating Toontown and adorable animatronics of Critter Country. Neighbouring Tokyo DisneySea has the lion’s share of the thrill rides. But there is still plenty of heart-in-mouth action to be had on the iconic Space Mountain and Buzz Lightyear’s Astro Blasters shoot-em-up ride.

Nautical Tokyo DisneySea showcases a wild, watery kingdom of seafaring thrills and maritime based mayhem. Featuring themed “ports of call”, visitors can explore a Mediterranean Harbor, American Waterfront and Mermaid Lagoon, just to name a few. There are also lots of action on the boats, hi-tech wizardry in the form of live Fantasmic shows. For pure adrenaline thrills, check out the thrilling Tower of Terror and Journey to the Center of the Earth.

Most suited to adults and teens rather than tots, even if you’re a self-confessed Disney addict you’ll be entering a new realm at Tokyo DisneySea. There is so much to love about it, including its immaculate design concepts and scenery, often acclaimed as the best Disney park on the planet.

Disney delights are the obvious lure, but there is so much more to discover in and around Tokyo Bay. Check out the wonders of the deep at Tokyo Sea Life Park or climb aboard the Ferris Wheel at Kasai Rinkai Park for a bird’s eye view of the bay. The Urayasu neighbourhood is one of Tokyo’s less frenetic areas with widely photogenic boulevards and green spaces where you can experience a more carefree urban vibe.

All You Need To Know About Tokyo DisneySea Attractions

Uncover the magic of Tokyo DisneySea!

Tokyo DisneySea might come across as being the more ‘grown-up’ Disney park, but there’s definitely no shortage of Disney magic here!

Why do we say Tokyo DisneySea is one of a kind? You’ll have to read our Klook article to find out. For now, it’s time to dive deep into the themed lands to see what secrets each one holds!

About Tokyo DisneySea


Source

In Tokyo DisneySea, there are 7 different themed lands. However, keeping to the park’s nautical theme, the different lands are, in fact, referred to as ‘ports of call’. In DisneySea, you’ll find that they put as much importance to the sceneries as much as they do for their attractions. The architecture and designs are so that guests are made to feel like they’re really being transported into various foreign lands and era. That is truly the Disney magic at work!


Source

If you’re worried about language barrier, it’s a non-issue at Tokyo DisneySea. All signs, announcements and maps are in English. Cast Members in the park are also always ready to help and guide you.


Source

You can also ask for ‘story paper’ from Guest Relations. They’re essentially illustrated flyers with information in English on Tokyo DisneySea attractions. They make for really good keepsakes as well!

Wondering if there’s anything else you need to know about the park? Head over to the Klook ultimate guide on Tokyo DisneySea!

Top 12 Tokyo DisneySea attractions

Since the queues at Tokyo DisneySea get pretty long, you might not be able to squeeze in all the attractions into your day. So, here are the top attractions in the park that you should include as your priority:

   

Keep reading to find more about each port of call in Tokyo DisneySea:

1. Mediterranean Harbor


Source

As you enter Tokyo DisneySea, you’ll find yourself transported into the world of an Italian port city. Besides, breaking away from the typical main street that Disney parks are known for, DisneySea welcomes a V-shaped layout.


Source


Source

Stepping into Mediterranean Harbor, you get a sense of being in an actual foreign city rather than a theme park with its carefully-designed architecture. The Portofino buildings that surround this port of call may look like a mere recreation of the fishing village, but they’re more than that! They’re actually hiding Hotel MiraCosta, Tokyo DisneySea’s in-park luxury hotel, in plain sight.


Source

Built as part of the park’s striking and outstanding design externally, the interior of Hotel MiraCosta is the “essence of luxury and an oasis of sophistication”. Additionally, as Tokyo Disney Resort’s most popular hotel, it offers guests a truly magical and fantasy-like experience of a lifetime.


Source


Source

From this port of call, visitors can get on the DisneySea Transit Steamer Line, one of the park’s in-park transportation system. Reminiscent of ports in Venice, you can also find Venetian gondolas in Mediterranean Harbor, steered by cheery, jovial gondoliers.


Source

At night, this port of call comes alive with Fantasmic!, a show that is every bit dramatic as it is exciting and entertaining. It features gigantic water screens, lasers, lights, and fire to create a spectacular show.


Source

You can also find shops and restaurants scattered densely throughout this hub, allowing visitors countless of options. Magellan’s is the park’s fine-dining restaurant that has been said to serve amazing food as well as has an incredible luxurious theme! Another famous dining choice is Ristorante di Canaletto for some great Italian cuisine.

Getting There: Take the free shuttle bus from the Macau/Taipa Ferry Terminal or Macau International Airport and arrive directly at Studio City!

Opening Hours
: 12pm-8pm

Klook Cost:US$11 (HKD82)

2. Mysterious Island


Source

Sitting at the heart of the park is Mysterious Island, with its towering volcano that serves as Tokyo DisneySea’s prominent centerpiece. Mysterious Island is based off Captain Nemo’s lair from Jules Verne’s novel and is also known as Vulcania Island from the movie 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea. In the park, you can find the ‘island’ within the volcano, Mount Prometheu.


Source

Mount Prometheu has been designed very impressively to resemble an active volcano. Visitors can witness the volcano erupting every so often, as well as steam coming out from the cracks on the side. This touch of Disney magic adds a certain sense of realism to the fantasy-like feeling of the park.


Source


Source

Although it’s the smallest area of the park, this port of call is home to two of DisneySea’s top attractions, Journey to the Center of the Earth and 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. Visitors get on a ‘Terravator’ on Journey to the Center of the Earth, which is a ride that uses light, sound, heat, and motion resulting in a multi-sensory experience. The scenes throughout the whole ride are breathtakingly realistic and immersive.


Source

20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, on the other hand, is a submarine track ride where visitors are submerged to explore the depths of the sea. With your own joystick, you can point your light in the direction of your choice to discover the mysteries that await you.


Source

Look out for the Refreshment Station to grab one of the park’s most sought-after snack – Nautilus Gyoza, aka the Gyoza Dog! Besides that, Nautilus Galley is also worth hitting up for some other tasty snacks like gyozas, turkey legs, and frozen beer.

Getting There: Klook to Khao Yai private car charter!

Opening Hours: 9am to 6pm

3. Mermaid Lagoon


Source

Multicoloured and vibrant giant seashells, coral, and kelp form King Triton’s undersea kingdom in Mermaid Lagoon. Of all the ports of call in Tokyo DisneySea, Mermaid Lagoon is perhaps the most colourful and caters more towards Disney’s younger audience too.


Source

In this underwater world of The Little Mermaid, you can find the more subdued rides in the park. Mostly indoor-focused, when you step inside, you can find the decorations and lighting effects designed to make guests feel like they’re under the sea with Ariel and her sea creature friends.


Source

It’s an absolute delight stepping into The Sleepy Whale Shoppe when the shop is literally inside the mouth of a giant whale! Ironically, the underwater world of Mermaid Lagoon is the best place to go to stay dry when it rains in the park.

Getting There: Take the MRT to Phetchaburi Station or Makkasan Station and board the complimentary shuttle bus to Show DC Mall

Klook Cost: US$26 (THB840)

4. Arabian Coast


Source


Source

Stunning towers, minarets, vibrant domes, quaint streets and a grandiose courtyard all make up the whimsical world of Arabian Coast, a recreation of the world of Aladdin and 1001 Arabian Nights. The Middle-Eastern and Indian influences are beautifully presented to visitors with intricate and magnificent designs.


Source

One of the top attractions in Arabian Coast is Sindbad’s Storybook Voyage. It’s a dark boat ride about Sindbad and his tiger, Chandu, on an adventure. Somewhat a cross between Pirates Of The Caribbean and ‘it’s a small world’, this ride is highly recommended!


Source


Source

Casbah Food Court, a counter service restaurant in Arabian Coast known for their curry, is quite popular amongst visitors. Food aside, the decor of the restaurant is also a sight to behold. With an incredibly accurate depiction of the marketplace in Agrabah, you’ll feel like you’re actually stepping into a scene of Aladdin.


Source


Source

Arabian Coast is also where you can find curry-flavoured popcorn. Besides that, the snack counter, Sultan’s Oasis is a great place to grab a quick bite and a breather. Their most popular item on the menu would be the Chandu Tail, which is a chicken-filled steamed bun. Other snacks include maple cream balls, soft serve ice cream, fruit juices and more.

5. Lost River Delta


Source


Source

Located at the back of Tokyo DisneySea sits Lost River Delta with a prominent structure that is the ruins of an ancient Aztec pyramid. Inspired by the Indiana Jones movies, this port of call is all decked out in lush greenery to mimic the deep jungles of Central America and signs of an archeological expedition having taken place.


Source

The sense of adventure continues when you walk through the ‘town’ in Lost River Delta that is surrounded by old, weathered shacks and building.


Source

If you’re price-conscious, Yucatan Base Camp Grill is one of the most affordable restaurants in the park for meat dishes. Miguel’s El Dorado Cantina, on the other hand, is a cantina with indoor and outdoor seating that serves Mexican-inspired dishes. If you’re looking for a quick but hearty snack, however, Yucatan Sausage Roll from Expedition Eats is a great option.


Source

At Lost River Delta, you can also find the station to get on the DisneySea Transit Steamer across to the Mediterranean Harbour. Besides that, the most distinguished attractions in this port of call are Indiana Jones Adventure and Raging Spirits.

Street Zombies

6. Port Discovery

Travel to the future and join in the exploration of technology in Port Discovery, the park’s most futuristic port of call. Although not a large area, it’s home to a couple of notable attractions – Aquatopia and Nemo & Friends SeaRider. This port of call also serves as a station for the DisneySea Electric Railway.


Source

Aquatopia is a specially-designed, trackless watercraft system that allows guests to experience surprising spins and twirls in a large water lagoon.


Source


Source

Nemo & Friends SeaRider is the latest attraction in Port Discovery, having only recently opened in May 2017. This simulator ride ‘shrinks’ guests down to fish size so they can get up close and personal with Nemo, Dory and friends!


Source

The Donald Duck ukiwa bun from Seaside Snacks between Port Discovery and Cape Cod is also a must-try snack in Tokyo DisneySea. Filled with shrimp, this steamed bun is shaped like a life buoy. How cute!

Dead or Alive (Deadman's Forest)
Start Time: 12pm
Age Restriction: No entry for children under 12 years old
Horror Level: 4

7. American Waterfront


Source


Source

In American Waterfront, it’s separated into 3 areas – New York City, New York Harbor, and Cape Cod. All set in the scenes of the 1920s era, this port of call takes up the largest area of the park. It’s also where you will find two of the park’s top attractions, Toy Story Mania! and Tower of Terror.


Source

Tower of Terror in Tokyo DisneySea features an original storyline. The tower is also known as Hotel Hightower, and the whole experience of the attraction has the classic ‘tour’, build up and freefall that the ride is known for.


Source

Although not the most exciting, American Waterfront is a large area that is beautifully themed. It’s great for strolling around with places to eat and shop. In Cape Cod is where you’ll find the Duffy-dedicated store, Aunt Peg’s Village Store. It’s so famous that sometimes there’s a queue to enter!


Source

New York Deli is a popular dining choice amongst visitors for its amazing decor as well as their famous Mile High Deli Stack sandwich. It’s also where you can get Little Green Alien Mochi! If you’re in the mood to stuff your face, however, Sailing Day Buffet is a wonderful option. Also, head over to the Barnacle Bill’s stand for flavoured beer!


Source


Source

Perhaps the most eye-catching structure in American Waterfront is the large-scale model of the steam-powered ocean liner, S.S. Columbia. The only attraction that is on the ship is Turtle Talk. Many also like to go to the upper decks for the view! Aside from that, you can find a couple of restaurants within the ship, namely S.S. Columbia Dining Room and The Teddy Roosevelt Lounge.


Source


Source

It’s easy to forget you’re in a theme park once you enter The Teddy Roosevelt Lounge. Rich, dark wood, leather seats and beautiful light fixtures fill the lounge. A magnificent bar, fireplace and mural on the ceiling further enhance the decor. You can also find an array of alcoholic, non-alcoholic drinks, hors d’oeuvres and sandwiches served in the lounge.


Source

Of course, if you’re tired from all the walking, you can get on one of the Big City Vehicles that transports visitors between Cape Cod and New York Harbor. In American Waterfront, you can also find stations to get on the DisneySea Electric Railway, as well as the DisneySea Transit Steamer Line.
