The magic is definitely there at Tokyo Disneyland, the best of the chain’s “Magic Kingdoms.” Many of the classic Disney attractions, such as Space Mountain and Pirates of the Caribbean, are here in versions that are as good, and sometimes better, than at other Disney parks. The park is designed to handle huge crowds, which are pretty common, with the various lands bleeding into one another without much of a buffer and some large spaces between the park’s numerous attractions (navigation can be a little tricky).
The park’s major lands are International Bazaar (“Main Street”), Tomorrowland, Fantasyland (including Mickey’s Toontown), Frontierland, and Adventureland (including New Orleans Square). Note that most attractions are presented in Japanese, and that, due to transportation-tax reasons, the park’s railroad has only one station (and tours only Adventureland and Frontierland). And don’t miss out on the park’s many flavors of popcorn, including chocolate and curry!
The famous Disney service is actually kicked up a notch here—the most helpful cast members anywhere. No visit to Tokyo is complete without seeing Tokyo Disneyland.
Tokyo Disneyland is like half of Florida's Magic Kingdom (i.e. high capacity, great operations) mixed with half of California's Disneyland (charming, cool small things to do). It's like Disney took the best parts of the Disneyland Parks and mixed them all together to create Tokyo Disneyland. With that said, there really was no "superior" version of any ride at this park, with the exception of OMFG Pooh. I still prefer Florida's Space Mountain and Mansion or Paris' Pirates and Thunder Mountain. All of the park's attractions are really solid, however, and mixed with the Japanese enthusiasm and quality of service, you really can't get a better Disney day! Oh... and OMFG Pooh is amazing!!
Tokyo Disneyland is the "Magic Kingdom" against which all the others should be judged. This is the original Disneyland done on a massive scale, built to handle the enormous crowds that it often gets--along with that amazing Japanese service and wonderful flavors of popcorn (try the curry--it's great!). This is also the home of the Winnie-the-Pooh ride that even Pooh haters love and other classic Disney rides. Everyone needs to visit TDL (and DisneySea) at least once.

Food and Drink
Tokyo Disneyland is basically a "Best of" the rest of the World's "Magic Kingdoms." Outstanding staff, parades and shows every hour, interesting snacks, and great rides make this the standout Magic Kingdom.
Lines can frequently run over two hours for major attractions, as the park is almost always busy.
