Exactly! Great job by whoever Tokyo Disney's ad agency is - localized for the market, yet unmistakeably Disney, and heck, all us foreign visitors loved it too - impressive!

NEWS: 2011 Attendance figures for Tokyo Disney Resort

Postby jedimaster1227 » Mon Apr 02, 2012 11:55 am

http://www.olc.co.jp/wpmu/wp-content/blogs.dir/7/files/2012/04/20120402_01e.pdf

Tokyo Disney Resort® announced today that the total combined attendance at Tokyo Disneyland® Park and Tokyo DisneySea® Park for fiscal year 2011 (April 1, 2011 to March 31, 2012) amounted to 25,347,000 persons (19,000 fewer persons or 99.9% of the attendance figure for the previous year). However, the attendance during the second half of the fiscal year reached a record 14,608,000 persons.

The 10th Anniversary “Be Magical!” event (September 4, 2011 through March 19, 2012) and the debut of the new nighttime spectacular “Fantasmic!” (April 28, 2011) at Tokyo DisneySea, as well as other programs were effective in generating the high attendance. Fiscal year 2011 demonstrated the favorable attendance generating conditions of an anniversary year, despite the Great East Japan Earthquake.

In addition, one of the factors unique to this fiscal year was that guests who could not visit due to the Park closures or who had refrained from visiting immediately after the Parks reopened came to the Parks later in the year.

In fiscal year 2012 at Tokyo DisneySea, a new attraction, Toy Story Mania! will open and a brand new event featuring Mickey Mouse and Duffy will be offered. We will undertake these and other measures to continue to generate attendance.

For Reference:

Park Operating Days in Fiscal Year 2011
Tokyo Disneyland: 352 days (closed April 1 - 14, 2011) Tokyo DisneySea: 339 days (closed April 1 - 27, 2011)

Park Operating Days in Fiscal Year 2010
Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea: 345 days (closed March 12 - 31, 2011)
Total Combined Attendance since the Grand Opening of Tokyo Disneyland (April 1983) 540,191,000 persons

I was wondering how Toy Story Mania was going to fit in with the American Waterfront section, but the trolley park idea makes perfect sense--a nice addition that fits with the era that section evokes.

Once again, DisneySea is showing why it's the best theme park ever.

And the Woody head still looks scary.

But hey - it's Tokyo Disney Sea. Whatever...

Can anyone think of anything that the japan parks don't do better than the american ones? I'm drawing a blank here.
