Chiba: Tokyo DisneySea

Located in Urayasu in Chiba Prefecture in Japan, Tokyo DisneySea is a 176-acre theme park. It is the ninth theme park of the eleven worldwide Disney theme parks to open.

Tokyo DisneySea opened on September 4, 2001. It was the most expensive theme park ever built, with an estimated cost of over $4 billion. Tokyo DisneySea along with its companion park Tokyo Disneyland is the only Disney Parks in the world not owned by the Walt Disney Company.

In 2013, Tokyo DisneySea attracted an estimated 14 million visitors making it the fourth most visited theme park in the world. It was also the fastest theme park in the world to reach the milestone of 10 million guests (having done so in 307 days after its grand opening). It toppled the previous record held by Universal Studios Japan's 336 days after the grand opening.

The different rides and attractions of Tokyo DisneySea are distributed in the seven uniquely themed areas of the park. These areas are:
  • Mediterranean Harbor
  • American Waterfront
  • Lost River Delta
  • Port Discovery
  • Mermaid Lagoon
  • Arabian Coast
  • Mysterious Island 
The park is famously known for its two symbols. The DisneySea AquaSphere ( a water fountain with a large model of the earth) and Mount Prometheus which is found in the center of the park much like the Cinderella Castle of Disneyland.

We visited Tokyo DisneySea during the 2nd day of our Tokyo-Chiba trip. No offense but compared to Tokyo Disneyland, I prefer the overall layout and design of the Tokyo DisneySea because it is more picturesque than the other. 

Getting there:
From Haneda Airport, ride the Direct bus going to Tokyo Disney Resort. Travel time is about 45 minutes. 

You could also take the Tokyo Monorail from Haneda Airport to Hamamatsucho Station (23 minutes ride) then transfer to the JR Yamanote Line (6 minutes ride) then transfer to either the JR Keiyo or JR Musashino Line going to Maihama Station (15 minutes ride).
