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. An express bus from Tokyo's airports is also available.

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).
