Tokyo Disney Resort Trip Report

Sunrise over Cinderella Castle at Tokyo Disneyland. This is actually the inverse of my #1 Cinderella Castle photo spot in the Magic Kingdom (and is probably my #1 photo spot in Tokyo). Top 10 Cinderella Castle Photo Spots:

Our Tokyo Disney Resort Trip Report covers our first visit to Tokyo Disney Resort–consisting of Tokyo Disneyland, Tokyo DisneySea, and a variety of hotels and shopping–just outside of the city of Tokyo, Japan. We visited during the first weeks of Tokyo Disney Resort’s 30th Anniversary, called “The Happiness Year.”

This report will include hundreds of photos of these two breathtaking theme parks, including Mysterious Island, Tokyo’s Tower of Terror, Cape Cod, Pooh’s Hunny Hunt, Monster’s Inc. Ride and Go Seek, the grand opening of Star Tours: The Adventures Continue, and much more! We will also have rare sunrise and nighttime photos from Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea, plus photos of details and other parts of these beautiful parks that are not often seen on websites written in English.

We feel that the two Tokyo Disney Resort parks are the nicest Disney theme parks in the world, and places every Disney fan should visit once in their lifetime. We think you’ll agree with us once you read and see this trip report!

Prepare for plenty of tangents, corny jokes, and our general travel trips for visiting Japan. In addition to this trip report, stay tuned for a series of overview/trip planning articles concerning Tokyo Disney Resort.
