Tokyo Disneyland

Tokyo Disneyland is one of two theme parks in the Tokyo Disney Resort located in Urayasu, Chiba, Japan, near Tokyo. It was the first Disney theme park to be built outside of the United States and the third Magic Kingdom-style Disney park ever built. Tokyo Disneyland opened on April 15, 1983.

There are seven themed areas, each complementing each other yet very unique in their style. Tokyo Disneyland's themed lands include the World Bazaar (Tokyo Disneyland's version of Main Street, USA), the four classic Disney lands: Adventureland, Westernland, Fantasyland and Tomorrowland, and two mini lands, Critter Country and Mickey's Toontown. The park is noted for its huge open spaces to accommodate the massive crowds the park receives on even moderate attendance days - Tokyo Disneyland is the single most visited theme park in the world, and its sister Tokyo DisneySea is the second.

The park was constructed by Walt Disney Imagineering in the same style as Disneyland in California and the Magic Kingdom in Florida; the Magic Kingdom influence is stronger, though, all the way to the castle, a reproduction of Walt Disney World's Cinderella Castle.

Tokyo Disneyland is owned by the Oriental Land Company, which licenses the theme from The Walt Disney Company. It, along with its companion park, Tokyo DisneySea, is the only Disney park not owned by The Walt Disney Company.
