What an extraordinarily detailed
While Disney has been building and opening
the California Adventure park in Anaheim, the Oriental Land Company has
been working on a new Disney park clear on the other side of the world,
Like it's new California cousin,
Tokyo DisneySea park resides next door to the existing Disneyland park.
The similarity ends there however, because Tokyo DisneySea is not like
any park in California, or even the world. The Oriental Land Company has
broken the mold with a theme park full of detailing so incredible it can
easily be compared to -- if not surpass -- some of the most expensive
and richly themed hotels in Las Vegas, such as the Venetian and Bellagio.
MousePlanet is extremely pleased to
offer you the following photos, taken by Todd Meigan*, over a recent
weekend during a soft opening of the park. Todd is a regular contributor
to our MousePad discussion boards, and is our very own Tokyo insider. We
hope Todd's photos will give you an idea of the sheer wonderment and
amazement of the new park.

Yesterday we took a look around the American
Waterfront area which houses the S. S. Columbia - but there is so much
more to see here! In these shots that follow, take a look at the
richness of the work done - and especially note the extensive work done
to age the buildings.
Above is the entry to the area from the
Mediterranean Harbor, below are some details from the same shot...
Take a close look at the curtains above,
complete with fringe - even at Disneyland they don't have this much
detail in the upper outside windows. Below you can see the back of the
Broadway theater and a street area.
To the right (if you head down the street
with the car, you'll spot the S. S. Columbia (in yesterday's section) at
The little cars add that Main Street feel to
A look up at a building further down the
street shows the incredible paint work done on the facade...
