The next day would bring us to Tokyo DisneySEA which is, without a doubt, my favorite theme park in the world! I cannot think of many parks where no matter where you are standing in the park, if you look in any direction, there is a "photo op" everywhere you look. Not only does it have some of the best Disney attractions ever made (Journey to the Center of the Earth, Tower of Terror, Indiana Jones, Sindbad, Aquatopia, 20,000 Leagues, etc) it's just a cool place to hang out and walk around. Much like Epcot, this is a park I could walk around all day in, not ride anything, and still have an amazing time! And that's probably why DisneySEA is my favorite park in the world and Epcot is second! Anyway, let's get right into some photos....

Image
We have just arrived at Tokyo DisneySEA! The #1, no question, no argument, best theme park in the world!

Image
Image
Image
Image
We are about to board the greatest attraction Disney has ever created! Journey to the Center of the Earth!

Here is a video of the awesomeness:


Image
Lava Monster! 15 years old and still the single best animatronic Disney has ever made!

Image
Happiness is holding two FPs for Tokyo DisneySEA before 9:30am! :)

Image
Found this awesome Journey ride vehicle! Never seen these before!

Image
Dear Tokyo Disney fans! Does anyone know if they still sell the gyoza that USED to be here somewhere else in the park? (Not the buns)
(Sadly we found out this menu changed in January of 2016.)

Image
Image
Image
Image
Dear Walt Disney World - Please remove the very dated Twilight Zone theme from Tower of Terror and replace with Shiriki! Thank you!

Image
Image
From this location at Tokyo DisneySEA I can see both Mt. Fuji and Mount Prometheus! I love Japan!

Image
Image
Image
Image
Yes, today is going to be a "popcorn day!"

Image
Image
Image
These mochi ice cream aliens were almost too cute to eat... but they were delicious! :

Image
Aquatopia... the most amazing pointless ride ever!!! LOVE IT!

We did a 360 video of Aquatopia. You'll probably need to open the link below in your phone in the YouTube app to see it in all it's glory!


Image
Out with the bad and in with the Nemo!

Image
Image
Bernard and Bianca were out greeting guests! Wish we'd see The Rescuers more often at the US parks!

Image
Image
Image
Image
This little ride at Tokyo DisneySEA is better themed than 97% of the roller coasters in America!

Image
Image
Image
Image
Another absolutely beautiful themed queue!

Image
Image
Image
Image
In the mermaid lagoon area you can find these Tokyo DisneySEA exclusive capsule toys!

Image
Image
Image
Image
Here are the many faces of Donald from the capsule toy!

Image
Yes... we are in a theme park!

Image
Tokyo DisneySEA is celebrating 15 years and we are happy to say we have been here for 11 of them!

Image
The ship that was added to the front of the park for the 15th anniversary is pretty awesome!

Image
Image
Image
Image
Each Disney character has their own special wish and crystal as part of the 15th anniversary.

Image
Image
Image
At the Japanese Mexican place you can get a sombrero Donald made out of rice and tortillas! Amazing!!!

Image
Image
We found her!

Image
Image
If you ask for the English translation at the Sindbad ride, you get this awesome card telling the story!

Image
Image
Image
Image
Which of these Tokyo DisneySEA underwear would you like to have protecting your junk?

Image
Image
It's really a coin flip between Curry and Black Pepper for my favorite popcorn flavor!

In this two minute clip will show you why we love Sindbad at Tokyo DisneySEA! VOLUME UP!!!


Image
Our view from Tokyo Disney! Mt. Fuji at sunset! Beautiful!

The parks closed early on this night because it's New Years Eve or "Countdown Party" which we will be attending in the next update!

Ohhhh Robb! So much awesomeness you're showing here of TDS.
Don't know where to start. The popcorns. That CAPSULE TOY! :smile:

And those Mt.Fuji shots, too! :lover:

I had originally planned us not hitting TDR until 2022, when most of
everything planned, is (hopefully) done. But still...... who's to say a
pre-2022 trip isn't out of line, hmm? 2018, maybe?

Awesome awesome photos posted Robb. And you are right, 100%.
It's The Best Most Awesome Theme Park (& Resort) in the World!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ :mickey:

P.S. I'm not that sure Robb, but the Sailing Day Buffet in the American
Waterfront, offers Western, Japanese and Chinese cuisine there.The gyozas
you are asking about, may be there.
Talk is Cheap :idea: Action is Pricele$$

DisneySea is still one of the best themed parks I've ever seen after 15 years. It's still on my bucket list. I'm glad you had a great time there! Thanks for the video of Journey to the Center of the Earth

I wonder if the Oriental Land Company just said to the imagineers "Alright. This is a park where you go ALL OUT. Go NUTS."

^From what I understand that is what happened. They gave Disney Imagineering a budget like they'd never seen before when building that park. Things have now been much more scaled down at the resort so I don't think we'll see anything as amazing as what's their now (due to economics and budgeting) but at least we have nice things!

Don't put that donkey on the floor!

It's like they were in sandbox mode when they built DisneySea and had no limits. I don't know if we'll every see another park built in our lifetimes that has the same level to detail and wow factor as Tokyo DisneySea.

Tokyo Disney is seriously the most beautiful place! I opted to skip Disney on my first trip to Japan because I was alone and would rather experience the park with friends or family. I'll definitely be going next time I'm in Japan though!

Before California Adventure was built, Disney had two basic designs for a second west coast park, WestCot, and DisneySea which was supposed to be part of a complex called Port Disney. Disney even announced Port Disney would be built in Long Beach, California. Obviously, that never happened. Instead, WestCot which was originally supposed to be a clone of Epcot kept morphing and turned into California Adventure.

Much of the design of Tokyo DisneySea is based on the design for California and is part of the reason why the park has so many unique attractions.
