Tokyo Disney Resort

The Tokyo Disney Resort is a theme park and vacation resort located in Urayasu, Chiba, Japan, just east of Tokyo. It is owned and operated by The Oriental Land Company with a license from The Walt Disney Company. The resort opened on April 15, 1983 as a single theme park (Tokyo Disneyland), but developed into a resort with two theme parks, two Disney hotels, and two shopping complexes. Tokyo Disneyland was the first Disney theme park opened outside the United States.

Tokyo Disney Resort has three main entertainment sections: Tokyo Disneyland; Tokyo Disneysea; and Ikspiari, which is a variation of the Downtown Disney shopping, dining, and entertainment area found at the Disney resorts in California and Florida. It also contains Bon Voyage, which is the official Disney goods specialty shop of Tokyo Disney Resort.

Like the other Disney resorts, Tokyo Disney has numerous hotels. Most are located close together, but Hotel MiraCosta (at Tokyo Disneysea) and Disney's Ambassador Hotel are separate from the main hotel area.

The Tokyo Disney Resort

Tokyo Disneyland - the first, and until 2001, the only theme park in the resort. Based on the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World, Florida.

Tokyo DisneySea - the most popular theme park in the world, and second only to Disneyland in the affections of Disney fans.

Ikspiari - similar to Downtown Disney and the Disney Village, an on-site shopping complex.
