Tokyo DisneySea is a theme park at the Tokyo Disney Resort. First opened in 2001, the entire park sports a nautical theme and has seven main areas or “ports of call.” Each area features a number of rides, attractions, and entertainment venues based on characters, stories, and movies from the Disney collection. As part of the Tokyo Disney Resort, visitors can purchase tickets for both Tokyo DisneySea and Tokyo Disneyland. With lots to do and a true plethora of entertainment options, you will find yourself wanting to return again and again.

Tokyo Disney Resort opened in 1983 with one park, Tokyo Disneyland. It shares its general layout, and most of its rides, with the classic Disneyland and Magic Kingdom parks. A second park, Tokyo DisneySea (東京ディズニーシー, Tōkyō Dizunīshī), opened in 2001. Unlike its older sibling, almost all of the rides are exclusive to this park. The areas of the park are themed around exploration. I’m a longtime veteran of Walt Disney World and the Disney Cruise Line, so I’ve grown to appreciate their "Imagineering", their word for park design. So, for my vacation in 2014, Tokyo Disney Resort was the most anticipated excursion I had planned.
If arriving by train, you’ll get off at Maihama Station and transfer on foot to the Resort Gateway Station. Directly behind that is the shopping complex Ikspiari (イクスピアリ). Depending on whom you ask, the name comes from the word "experience", or the song title "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious" from Mary Poppins.
The Disney film Frozen, titled in Japanese as Ana to Yuki no Jo-oh (アナと雪の女王, lit. 'Anna and the Snow Queen'), had just come out in Japan when I visited. As a matter of fact, I saw the whole thing for the first time (in English) on the flight out. If you want to read my thoughts on that movie
In the far back of the park is Lost River Delta, an Amazon jungle-themed area, home to Indiana Jones Adventure and Raging Spirits (pictured). The Indiana Jones ride hosted the longest wait times I witnessed in my trip, topping four hours at most! I wish I had known that it was one of two rides at DisneySea, the other being Raging Spirits, which offer single-rider lines for folks who are travelling alone or do not need to stick with their party.
If you hang around, you might catch a water show in the central lagoon. Apart from the daytime one shown here, when night falls they do a version of Fantasmic!, as made famous at Hollywood Studios (once again).
In conclusion, I would still recommend Tokyo DisneySea. I would, however, advise you to do your research in picking the best time to go in order to beat the crowds and get your money's worth. After all, both DisneySea and Disneyland are some of the more expensive attractions in all of Japan, with a one-day adult ticket costing about US$75 (see below). Mind you, that's still cheaper than the Disney parks in California or Florida, which charge upwards of $100!

Our tour guide was Kenji Kasama.
We visited the various locations outlined in the tour and Kenji was also able to fit in a couple of other places that we were keen to experience eg the cat cafe. He is very knowledgeable, helpful and friendly and has a really pleasant, kind demeanour.
We had a great day out with him and we certainly got a feel for Tokyo which was the point of our outing. He took us to an amazing sushi/fresh fish place for lunch. Food and wine were stunning.
All in all, a fab experience.
I hadnt been to Tokyo for 25 years and this time was travelling with teen age kids and wife with limited time I did not want to waste reacquanting myself and learning how much had changed. This tour was perfect choice. We briefed our guide on what we wanted to see, and he was indefatigable and cheerful in making sure we got it covered, even though it was 32 degree today in September and very humid. We finished exhausted but happy that the family had seen a little of Tokyo, old and new. Can't recommend highly enough.
Our tour with Sense of Wonder was amazing! Hitoshi, our guide, was amazing at adapting or tour to everything we wanted to see and even adapted as the day went on due to the senior citizens in our party getting tired and the weather getting rainy. In addition, the tour started on time and included all our pre-requested places.
This place is full of Disney magic! It’s truly a wonderful place to visit for all ages. There's plenty to do from rides to meeting Duffy and friends! The fast passes were a great help if you're visiting during peak times. You can skip the queue if you don’t want to wait in line. It's a Disney park so be aware that it can be expensive to buy things here. There's loads of merchandise that is unique to Tokyo DisneySea, so you may end up spending more than you anticipated. The food is expensive too so keep that in mind. But I had a wonderful experience.
Coming back to Tokyo DisneySea three years later did not disappoint me. 😍In the past three years, no new amusement programs have been added, which just gave me a chance to go leisurely.
This time, I selected items that I haven't tried before, such as tower of terror, and Journey to the center of the earth. However, it is still recommended for more popular projects, such as tower of terror, Journey to the center of the earth, Indiana jones, etc. 🤩
