Happy Birthday, Gorgeous...
Seven years ago today, Tokyo DisneySEA opened up in Japan completing a transformation of the Tokyo Disneyland Park into the Tokyo Disney Resort. The new park along with two new hotels(Tokyo DisneySea Hotel MiraCosta, Disney Ambassador Hotel) and an Downtown Disney-like entertainment center(Ikspiari) make the Resort a much more attractive tourist destination. Of course when Disney fans walked down the themed ports of TDS they were a little startled at the level of detail that the park had. Ok, maybe more than a little startled... this was arguably the most beautiful park created by Imagineers.
After this day, the Walt Disney Company would continually hear fans gripping about what we got in America(DCA) versus what the Japanese got(TDS). Of course, most Disney fans don't realize that Tokyo DisneySEA is not owned by Disney, but by the Oriental Land Company.
If you EVER go to Tokyo and are a Disney fan then do not miss the opportunity to see this park. Take a look at what WDI can do when given the chance to shine...
