Tokyo Disney Resort, a combination of two major theme parks, Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea. Tokyo Disneyland attracts visitors with speedy roller coasters such as Big Thunder Mountain, Splash Mountain, etc., while Tokyo DisneySea is a theme park, at which visitors can experience ocean-related stories and myths that are part of Disney’s traditional family entertainment. The secret of the popularity of Tokyo Disney Resort lies in nothing but its unique view of the world. Once you step in to the resort, where is completely closed to outside, everything you see is from the Disney World. The stage effect of their dream-like entertainment is perfectly organized, which is another factor that attracts repeaters.
