7 Must Visit Tourist Attraction in Tokyo DisneylandPosted by Continental Tour Guide in Europe | 0 comments
Here you can read about my favorite things to do in Tokyo Disneyland and the tourist attractions that I like the most.
Tokyo Disneyland is Japan’s version of the Magic Kingdom or Disneyland. This guide to Tokyo Disneyland attractions contains short reviews and numerical scores for every ride and show in the park. If you’re planning a trip to Tokyo Disney Resort, this is a great place to start when determining what to do and when to do it. The guide will give you a rough idea of an itinerary, which is very important at Tokyo Disneyland.
Tokyo Disneyland offers a wide variety of attractions that children and adults can surely enjoy. Their attractions consist of the following: Adventureland, Westernland, Fantasyland, Tomorrowland, Critter Country, Toon Town, various shops and the fun and amazing magical shows. Other attractions offers a Fastpass Voucher. Fastpass allows guests to avoid long lines at the tourist attractions on which the system is installed, freeing them to enjoy other attractions during their wait.
List of Tokyo Disneyland Attractions
Grand Circuit Raceway
This very popular go-kart like ride lets you ride a race car through a designated circuit. To ensure visitors safety, the driving possibilities are limited to turning the steering wheel a bit right or left and pushing the accelerator, but still it is fun to get the feeling of controlling a car and “driving” it.
Space Mountain is a dark roller coaster through outer space. There’s some cool theming here, a blast-off tunnel, and re-entry tunnel. This is similar to the Disneyland version, except with different effects and without on-board audio. We recommend doing it, even if you’re familiar with the US versions. Do it early in the morning or use a FastPass.
To start off, it has the Alice’s Tea Party, Castle Carrousel, Dumbo the Flying Elephant, It’s a Small World, Mickey’s PhilharMagic, Peter Pan’s Flight, Pinocchio’s Daring Journey and Snow White’s Adventure. Nevertheless, there are a number of surprises in store. The Haunted Mansion in Fantasyland is not something one would expect, but it is there. It even has a Cinderella’s Fairy Tale Hall , which is a walkthrough tourist attraction in the castle. It features artifacts and art briefing you with the Cinderella story. However, with many people wanting to be in this Hall, one has to wait too long for a walk-through.
The world’s tallest tower, there is no better place to take in and truly appreciate the magnitude of this sprawling city. Book a ticket and head up to the observation deck where you can take in panoramic views of the city from 450m above ground, if the conditions are right you may even be able to spot Mount Fuji. Within the Tokyo tower, you will also find restaurants, shops, and even an aquarium at its base, meaning there is plenty to do here.
Adventureland makes for a perfect finishing . Especially the Tiki Room, which has a refreshing new feel. Unlike the old Tiki Room show, this one has a popular Disney animated movie character, taking over the original counterpart. Stitch is the catchy thing here. Basically, Stitch’s attempt is to force his way in the Tiki Room show. This might remind you, of the attempts made by Lucy to make her way into the Tropicana Club shows of Ricky. Moving on, you might even find the Café Orleans, the Blue Bayou and the Pirates of the Caribbean in the Adventureland. For a soup and bread fanatic, Adventureland had options like Boiler Room Bites, Cafe Orleans, China Voyager, Crystal Palace Restaurant and Polynesian Terrace Restaurant.
National Art Center
Another of Tokyo’s world-class museums is the excellent National Art Center (Kokuritsu Shin-Bijutsukan). Housed in a remarkable curved glass building in the city’s Roppongi district, this superb facility only opened in 2007 and has since earned a well-deserved reputation for its fine permanent collection of more than 600 paintings, most from the 20th century, including many important pieces of modern art, as well as regular visiting exhibitions (the facility also boasts a shop and a restaurant). Also worth checking out is the Mori Art Museum (Mori Bijutsukan) on the top floors of the neighboring Roppongi Hills Mori Tower and notable for its regular exhibits of contemporary artwork from around the globe.
Soon to be replaced during the New Fantasyland expansion, this is a spinner ride similar to Dumbo. Elevated location makes this a fun diversion, especially at night when Tokyo Disneyland is lit up. Longtime Disney fans will want to do this for the nostalgia-factor, as these same jets used to be in the US Tomorrowlands. Lines vary significantly throughout the day, so do this when you notice the wait is reasonable.
