Photo TR: Tokyo Disneysea - The world's GREATEST themepark?

Postby eddytheviper » Sun Mar 15, 2015 2:17 pm

Hey TPR!

Last summer I was lucky enough to enjoy 5 days in Tokyo, after absorbing the best of Japanese culture and Yakitori I found myself with one extra day of culture before having to go to the airport in the evening to fly onwards. So what I did decide to do? Visit what some consider the world's GREATEST themepark.

So what did I know about Tokyo DisneySea before I went? 1. It has incredible themeing, considered the best in the world. 2. It has fantastic ride operators, considered the best in the world. 3. It has an amazing selection of popcorns, considered the best in the world. You kind of get an idea... But is the hype really is true? Is it really the world's greatest themepark? Let's find out.
Tokyo Disney #1.jpg
First of all, how awesome are these themed handloops on the Monorail?
Tokyo Disney #2.jpg
So I was told that you want to get to Tokyo Disney early, I mean real early... this is around 7.30am
Tokyo Disney #3.jpg
And this is queue that was already in front of me...
Tokyo Disney #4.jpg
On your marks, get set, go! I love the fear of the left Disney Castmember
Tokyo Disney #5.jpg
First up, running... I mean, walking to The Journey To The Centre Of the Earth for Fastpasses for later and a ride for now!
Tokyo Disney #6.jpg
Yes, there's a ride hidden in there... LOOK HOW BEAUTIFUL IT IS.
Tokyo Disney #7.jpg
LOOK AT THE THEMING. LOOK AT IT.
Tokyo Disney #8.jpg
For all you sign nerds out there
Tokyo Disney #9.jpg
Even the queue is incredible, suck it Six Flags!
Tokyo Disney #10.jpg
Entering further in Mount Prometheus you really feel like you're entering a volcano
Tokyo Disney #11.jpg
Just about to board the Terravator a half mile down to the base station. Also, how popular is Duffy in Japan?! Unbelievable.
Tokyo Disney #12.jpg
I just loved the detailing here, could this be the world's best themed queue experience??
Tokyo Disney #13.jpg
Even the effects inside the Terravator are totally awesome, it totally feels like you're going down a mineshaft!
Tokyo Disney #14.jpg
Into the base station to board your mine vehicle
Tokyo Disney #15.jpg
Which look totally badass by the way. I tried to get another photo but the queue moved too fast!
Tokyo Disney #16.jpg
So what was the ride like? It was fun not intense but fun, think TestTrack, underground, with a Lava Monster and you got it, definitely re-ridable.
Tokyo Disney #17.jpg
Is this level of themeing needed? No, but is it totally awesome? YES.
Tokyo Disney #18.jpg
So next up is 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea and again, it has a beautiful queue
Tokyo Disney #19.jpg
If I recall, someone told me 157 stands part of co-ordinates within the story, amazing attention to detail.
Tokyo Disney #20.jpg
Oh Disney, you really struck gold with how beautiful everything is..
Tokyo Disney #21.jpg
Hello Submarine, how ya doing! Sorry, I'm not Robb.. Ahem.
Tokyo Disney #22.jpg
Did I also mention how amazing the Japanese are at Queuing? I went for a drink in the fountain and the couple behind me just stopped and waved me back in!
Tokyo Disney #23.jpg
Did I say how beautiful this park is? Because, it is STUNNING.
Tokyo Disney #24.jpg
So, today it was Busy
Tokyo Disney #25.jpg
I mean... seriously busy. This was the queue for Toy Story Mania Fastpasses! Also, spot the Duffy. He's everywhere!
Tokyo Disney #26.jpg
I didn't think my Disney experience would need so much running about...
Tokyo Disney #27.jpg
Hello Hightower! Oh p.s. those people are waiting for a parade in like 2 hours time... the Japanese LOVE parades.
Tokyo Disney #28.jpg
Is this the best tower of them all?
Tokyo Disney #29.jpg
It could just be (Duffy alert!)
Tokyo Disney #30.jpg
It's nothing like any other Tower of Terror
Tokyo Disney #31.jpg
and for that I love it
Tokyo Disney #32.jpg
and little Shiriki is the reason why I love this experience so much
Tokyo Disney #33.jpg
Creepy little thing, I still don't understand the effects in this room, it blows my mind!
Tokyo Disney #34.jpg
Oh look, we're at Revenge of the mummy now, nahh kidding. By the way, this tower is brilliant, not as intense as WDW but, I liked the different ride sequence.
Tokyo Disney #35.jpg
How is this a restaurant?
Tokyo Disney #36.jpg
I mean really.. wow
Tokyo Disney #37.jpg
Looking out to the New York harbour, now all I need is a bagel and someone to argue with now
Tokyo Disney #38.jpg
The boat sets sail in 30 minutes guys!
Tokyo Disney #39.jpg
Is it weird I kind of feel at home here?
Tokyo Disney #40.jpg
I mean really, it's kind of homely. Now I crave popcorn and mmmm it was good. Had Strawberry and then later curry. Mmmm
Tokyo Disney #41.jpg
Going over to Lost Delta River
Tokyo Disney #42.jpg
Magic castle, I can see you!
Tokyo Disney #43.jpg
Time to be adventurers and ride Indiana Jones. All together now! Bum bum buum, dum dum darrh. No? Just me then..
Tokyo Disney #44.jpg
This ride... ROCKED. I rode it 4 times, if anything just for the reactions of my fellow riders, our Japanese cousins are so funny!
Tokyo Disney #45.jpg
Aquatopia is down?? Nooooooooooooooo!
Tokyo Disney #48.jpg
Sin-bad? No Sin-good! I dunno. I'm rubbish at captions.
Tokyo Disney #46.jpg
GRR I'M A BIG GREEN GUY. GIMME ALL YOUR CANDY.
Tokyo Disney #47.jpg
That whale looks like it's had some seriously messed up life experiences
Tokyo Disney #49.jpg
Now not so easy but, spot the Duffy! He is there, I promise wearing a white hat.
Tokyo Disney #50.jpg
Oh man, I do love a good carousel
Tokyo Disney #51.jpg
Especially when you can ride a genie or a flying carpet
Tokyo Disney #52.jpg
This counts as a credit, right?
Tokyo Disney #53.jpg
Mermaids live here
Tokyo Disney #54.jpg
Hey Ariel which way do we go? That way? Okay. Sure.
Tokyo Disney #55.jpg
This place is just so cute. Perfect for little ones
Tokyo Disney #56.jpg
The teacups especially looked a blast. Note the mid action seflie taking too.
Tokyo Disney #57.jpg
Hello good tower again! How ya doing! Okay, I couldn't help it, I had ANOTHER ride. My 4th for the day. I also met some lovely people in the queue, Ayaka, if you're reading this, konichiwa my friend!
Tokyo Disney #58.jpg
Last up was the Big Beat Show, a really fun broadway style show. Big winner for me and a wonderful way to sign off the night
Tokyo Disney #59.jpg
So there you go, Disney TokyoSea in all it's glory. Is it the worlds greatest themepark? I might just be, but I'll let you work that out in the comments! I then had to run off to the aiport and board my flight home. What a day! Sayōnara - Seee you!

I've gone pantless!

Yes, it's the best park in the world. I never get tired of looking at pictures of the place. Glad you had a good time.

And this

suck it Six Flags!


is a phrase that really needs to be used more often.

Excellent report. Yes, I agree with everyone above, the park is amazing. Favourite park i've visited. Rides are awesome, theming is a notch above anything else and staff are superb.

Glad you had a fun day!
