Enjoy Tokyo DisneySea in just one day!
DisneySea first opened on September 4, 2001 and boasts seven uniquely themed areas or “ports of call” on 176-acres located in Urayasu, Chiba Prefecture. In comparison to Tokyo Disneyland, DisneySea is geared more towards an older audience having faster, more thrilling, and even romantic rides throughout its nautical themed park. However, you can still find plenty to do for the little ones such as visiting Mermaid Lagoon. The large water fountain of planet earth, also known as Disney AquaSphere, is located at the main entrance and is a great introduction to a voyage of adventure & imagination. To maximize the number of rides to experience at the park, take advantage of scanning your tickets to obtain a FastPass at the more popular rides like Journey to the Center of the Earth or Toy Story Mania!. Then grab some snacks like flavored popcorn, churro, and a beer as you browse around the rest of the park on foot. After watching this video, you will agree that Tokyo DisneySea is definitely the "Happiest Place on Earth" on this side of the globe!
Admission for a 1-Day Passport to Tokyo DisneySea is 6,900yen for Adults, 6,000yen for Juniors (Ages 12-17), and 4,500yen for Child (Ages 4-11).
To access Tokyo DisneySea, take the train bound for Maihama Station and hop on the Disney Resort Line. Or, exit Urayasu from Wangan Expressway by car. Ample parking is available for 2,500yen (weekdays) / 3,000yen (weekends & holidays).

Originally from San Diego, California, I lived in Japan for 4-1/2 years and now I am currently based out of Honolulu, Hawaii. In December 2010, I arrived in Yokosuka with a new outlook on my future. Mainly, to refocus on family and let my curiosities take us to places we’ve only dreamt of. Along the way, we’d hopefully develop new friendships and simply collect memories to last a lifetime. Then, there was the Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami on March 11, 2011. I will never forget that experience and the devastating effects it had on the entire country. I asked the community, “What can I do to help?” Collecting, sorting, and packing donations, was the least I could do. I also ended up going back to California for one month, raised a small monetary donation for Red Cross, and secured a few phone interviews to help spread the word on how others from the United States could assist. I was determined to show my family, friends, and folks across the world that it would be okay to return to Japan. After all, I wanted them to know that all of the little things that make up this beautiful country still existed. What better way than to use a platform such as JapanTravel.com to share photos and stories full of life, history, and culture. It is a pleasure to say I have contributed more than 150 articles to a database that now collectively holds more than 15,000! This journey has not only allowed me to realize my initial goals, but I’d like to think that it has somehow played a role in sparking an interest locally and across the globe for others to experience all that is published here and more. I invite you to also share your wonderful stories, offer comments, and ask questions right here on JapanTravel. Feel free to contact me at email@example.com. Safe travels! ٩( ๑╹ ꇴ╹)۶
