A 'Happy Birthday' photo gallery of Tokyo DisneySea
Written by Robert Niles
Happy Birthday to Tokyo DisneySea, which is celebrating its 11th anniversary. The winner of this year's Theme Park Insider Award for the world's Best Theme Park officially opened on September 4, 2001, and I though we'd celebrate with some of my favorite photos of the park from our visit last December.Tweet

Blasting out of the mountain on Journey to the Center of the Earth - this is only place on the track where you can see the vehicles in this Radiator Springs Racers/Test Track-style ride from the outside.
I love Harrison Hightower
