Enter the magical kingdom of Tokyo DisneySea, one of the most visited places in Japan, and leave Tokyo with memories to cherish forever. The Tokyo Disney Resort has two famous theme parks – the popular Tokyo Disneyland Park, and the Tokyo Disney Sea – a theme park mostly enjoyed by adults. Tokyo Disney Sea is based on an overall nautical theme. It has seven uniquely themed ‘ports of call’. There is the Mediterranean Harbor at the entrance of the park, and it opens up to another six nautically themed port, viz., American Waterfront, Lost River Delta, Port Discovery, Mermaid Lagoon, Arabian Coast, and Mysterious Island. The harbor is themed as an Italian port and has Venetian Gondolas that people can board and ride. Mysterious Island takes you on a journey to the core of the earth and a submarine expedition into the artificial marine world that imitates the treasures of the sea. It is set between Mount Prometheus, the park’s centerpiece and its most prominent feature. From here, you can reach the Mermaid Lagoon, which is home to the little mermaid, and is made to look like the Palace of King Triton. The Arabian Coast, set in the times of Aladdin, is an exotic Arabian harbor. At the back of the park is Lost River Delta, which is set in Aztec pyramid ruins and houses the ride called the Indiana Jones Adventure: Temple of the Crystal Skull. Port of discovery is also known as the “marina of the future”. It has the adventurous Stormrider to stir you up. The American Waterfront describes the northeastern seaboard of the USA in the early 20th century. The theme park also runs exciting shows, viz., the Fantasmic!, A Table is Waiting, Big Band Beat, Mystic Rhythms, and My Friend Duffy. All the shows are based upon Walt Disney’s timeless cartoon character – Mickey Mouse. The park is home to several shops and restaurants. Thus, you can easily satiate your hunger pangs, or buy some cool souvenirs.
