Disneyland beckons


Tuesday saw the group take a trip to Tokyo Disneyland which proved to a day of fun for one and all.


Tokyo Disneyland is a 47 hectare theme park at the Tokyo Disney Resort in Urayasu, near Tokyo. It was the first Disney park to be built outside the United States, and it opened on 15 April 1983.


The park has seven themed areas: the World Bazaar; the four traditional Disney lands: Adventureland, Westernland, Fantasyland and Tomorrowland; and two mini-lands: Critter Country and Mickey’s Toontown. Many of these areas mirror those in the original Disneyland as they are based on American Disney films and fantasies.


The park is noted for its extensive open spaces, to accommodate the large crowds that visit the park. It is the world’s second-most visited theme park behind the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World Resort.
