Let me Take You to Tokyo DisneySea Resort

What is the happiest place on earth? Disneyland! But have you heard of Tokyo DisneySea? Maybe yes maybe no. But whatever it is, let me show you what Tokyo DisneySea is. By the way, do you know that Tokyo Disney Sea is the only Disney Sea in the world? There are 7 Disneylands across the globe but there is only one Disney Sea. This might be a great factor when you are in a dilemma of choosing between Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo Disney Sea.

Fees:

park tickets

How to Get There:

Get to Maihama Station and ride a Disney Resort Monorail to Tokyo Disney Sea Station. It takes 10 minutes to arrive in the resort and it cost for JPY 260. For more transportation details, click here.

Train to Tokyo DisneySea

Fastpass:

Before I tour you around Tokyo Disney Sea, let me reiterate this powerful and helpful FASTPASS. Skip the waiting line and be efficient. Fastpass is a ticket which allows you to skip the line for a specific ride during an assigned time slot. Note that a Fastpass is FREE. So how can you get it? Just find a fastpass machine at any ride you want then insert your Disneysea Passport to get one fastpass. Return on that ride during your assigned time slot. Note, however, that not all rides have fast pass. I’ll be indicating in the next section which rides have fastpass. By the way, you can’t get all fast pass rides at one time, so know what rides to prioritize and get your next fastpass as soon as it becomes available. The fastpass also indicates the time when you can get another fastpass ticket.

Attractions:

There are 7 themed attractions: Mediterranean Harbor, Mysterious Island, Mermaid Lagoon, Arabian Coast, Lost River Delta, Port Discovery and American Waterfront. My favorite, of course, is the Mediterranean Harbor as it feels like I’m in Europe! Hahaha! I’m daydreaming again. Hahaha. Europe has always been my dream continent and hope to blog it to you soon! *crossfingers*

Mediterranean Harbor

This is what welcomes us in Tokyo Disneysea, an Italian port town. It features Venice style canals and gondolas. Ghheeeeeed! I can live here. Kidding!

Hmm. We haven’t tried this  as it is a roller coaster ride and we don’t want to feel dizzy! Hahaha. Here, you will be riding a subterranean vehicle where volcano suddenly shakes and erupts. The location of this ride is inside the volcano.

Mermaid Lagoon

DisneySea is a place for all ages but unlike Disneyland that captures every heart to be young again, DisneySea offers attraction that adults can enjoy. However, Mermaid Lagoon is a place for kids. It is the quirky area of the park where its rides fit to younger ages. What is great about this place is that it is underground, hence the best place to stay whenever it rains. Hahaha. I thought this is just a normal palace but when I entered the place, woooow. The place is enormous and a number of activities can be done here especially for kids and kids at heart.
