Adventure at Tokyo DisneySea!

Tokyo DisneySea is one of the most interesting theme parks I’ve ever visited. Its many themed ports offered us a glimpse of different parts of the world, all exact life-sized replicas. It’s so incredibly beautiful!

DisneySea is divided into 7 themed ports of call such as American Waterfront where we were transported back to the fishing village of Cape Cod at the turn of the century with a huge liner docked at the port. The Mediterranean Harbour is a charming Venetian village where we rode a gondola through the canals of Venice. This is the most romantic part of the theme park! Our first roller-coaster ride was at the Lost River Delta where we rode the mining cart for Indiana Jones and the Temple of the Crystal Skull adventure! The ride was set within the confines of a Mayan pyramid and was one of the most exhilarating rides I’ve ever been on. Just perfect for my own little Indiana Jones adventure. The only bummer was Indiana Jones speaking in Japanese so we had no idea what he was saying! Next up was the Jules Verne’s Journey to the Center of the Earth at the Mysterious Island. We rode a lift that took us into the center of the earth before getting onto our roller-coaster ride. The ride took us around the center of the earth where there are volcanoes, electric birds, plants … just like the recently released movie of the same name. For little girls with mermaid fantasies, The Mermaid Lagoon is a dream come true. My little girl was ecstatic that she is finally inside King Triton's kingdom under the sea. The rides here catered mostly for children and there is a very nice live show with Ariel the mermaid. The exotic Arabian Coast is where we found the enchanting world of 1001 Arabian Nights. The double storey Aladdin carousel is a favourite of kids and adults alike. Port Discovery is the marina of the future where the Center for Weather Control is located.
