If there is one park that I would love to go to everyday for the rest of my life without being able to go to other parks, I have to say it might be DisneySea over the original Disneyland!

The Tokyo version looked more dynamic to me than the Anaheim version, suggesting that perhaps more of the show elements were actually working. Downside? I couldn't keep track of them all, and I am a fan enough neither of motion-based rides nor Indiana Jones to want to ride this one more than once in a day. (Indy - the franchise - has too much gross-out humor for my taste.) Sorry. Give me Journey to the Center of the Earth instead.
The fire was pretty neat, though.

You're riding on "scaffolding" behind and around that temple from the first photo, and you end by blasting through the fog/smoke you see in the last photo. There's fire there, as well, but it's really tough to get that to show in the photo during daylight. (There's fire coming up the steps toward the top of the temple in the first photo, too.)

Published: January 3, 2012 at 12:38 PMHave enjoyed your reports from Disney Sea, my wife and I visited in Oct 2009 and agreed it was pretty much the best themed park we had ever visited, and we had been to many parks in our time together. Really good rides, staff and food, excellent place.
