If you love Disney and its characters, or you find yourself in Japan with your children, spending a day at Tokyo Disneyland may be an excellent idea.
In any case, don't forget that it is an amusement park built with the aim of bringing "America" in Japan, I personally do not think it is one of the priority places to visit during a trip in Japan. If you have many free days, it's ok, it might be quite an experience, otherwise it's better to capitalize your few days in Japan to see much "Japan" as possible.
The park is divided into 7 "worlds":
, Critter Country
, World Bazaar
Tokyo Disney Sea
The Tokyo Disney Sea is another theme park, distinct from Disneyland, it was even opened many years later, in 2001.
This park, which has as its general theme water and the sea, is not directed primarily to children as the nearby Disneyland, but to all ages. According to many people, it is one of the most beautiful theme parks in the world (I generally do not really like this kind of places so I can not judge it well).
The park is divided into seven "harbors":
, Arabian Coast
, Lost River Delta
, Mediterranean Harbor
, Mermaid Lagoon
, Mysterious Island
, Port Discovery
Pratical guide, how to get to the Tokyo Disney Resort and map
The Tokyo Disney Resort is set on Tokyo Bay, about 15 km from the central areas of the city, in the territory of the dormitory town of Urayasu
The main station in the area is Maihama station
of the JR, served by the Musashino line
and above all by the Keiyo line
, which connects it directly to Tokyo station
(14 minutes, 210 YEN). Two other useful stations in Tokyo which are served by the Keiyo line are Hatchobori station
(interchange with the Tokyo Metro Hibiya line), and Shinkiba station
(interchange with the Tokyo Metro Yurakucho line). In order to get to the Tokyo Disney Resort from any area of Tokyo then just reach one of these three stations (especially Tokyo station) and then change to the Keiyo line.
From Maihama station, you can reach Disneyland or DisneySea on foot (respectively 600 meters and 1.2 kilometers far), or take the Tokyo Resort line

-Tokyo DisneySea Station
