History of Tokyo DisneySea
Tokyo DisneySea opened in September 2001, the first Disney theme park outside the United States not to use the "Magic Kingdom" design. DisneySea employed many of the concept designs that Walt Disney Imagineering had developed for a possible Long Beach, Calif. theme park, back when Long Beach and Anaheim were competing for Disney's second theme park in Southern California. Anaheim "won" that battle, and ended up with Disney's California Adventure.
How do you get to Tokyo DisneySea?
By train, take the JR Keiyo Line or Musashino Line to Maihama Station. By car, take the Wangan Expressway to the Urayasu exit.
When is the best time to visit?
The most uncrowded times to visit are any weekday while school is in session. Peak visitor seasons are Christmas-New Years Holiday, Summer Holiday (late July-late August), Obon (late summer) and Golden Week (early May). -Last edited by Robynn Gille

Plan your day at Tokyo DisneySea
There aren't many people in the park even in the July except New Year and Christmas. The ultimate ride here is Journey so you have to ride it first. If you haven't breakfasted yet, you should take fastpasses for 20,000 Leagues and eat at Vulcania. Then go to 20,000 and after that, go to Mermaid Lagoon and ride Flounder and watch the ultimate show Ariel. To the east is Arabian Coast, ride Sinbad and Magic Lamp Theatre. Then to Lost River Delta and ride Indiana Jones and Raging Spirits. In Port Discovery, ride the StormRider. In American Waterfront, ride Tower of Terror and watch the Encore! show. Last but not least, watch the nightime spectacular BraviSEAmo!
What's coming next to Tokyo DisneySea?
The new Soarin' Over California type attraction will open as part of DisneySea's 10th anniversary (which is around 2012-2013). Whether it will have different films or not is to be decided later. -- Last edited by Adriel Tjokrosaputro on December 5, 2008
