Tokyo Disneyland is a theme park in Tokyo, Japan. Opened on April 15, 1983, this park is owned by The Oriental Land Company rather than than The Walt Disney Company. Until 2000, Tokyo Disneyland was the most visited theme park in the world.
Tokyo Disneyland is based on the design of Disneyland. The park is divided into the World Bazaar, Fantasyland, Tomorrowland, Westernland, Adventureland, Toontown, and Critter Country. Frontierland was renamed Westernland because there is no word in the Japanese language that corresponds with the English word "Frontier".
The World Bazaar takes the place of Main Street USA. The architecture is Victorian and is covered with a greenhouse-style glass ceiling to protect visitors from the elements.
Tokyo Disneyland has a version of Pirates of the Caribbean in Adventureland. After riding, guests can go to Blackbeard 's Portrait Deck for a souvenir photo. The Golden Galleon offers a large selection of pirate merchandise. For those who want to eat after the ride, there is no place better than the Blue Bayou Restaurant.
Though not part of Tokyo Disneyland, Tokyo DisneySea has several attractions that may interest pirate fans. Mediterranean Harbor has a recreation of a Golden Age fortress as well as a galleon, the Renaissance, for guests to explore. Sinbad's Storybook Voyage at the Arabian Coast may also be of interest.
