Take a look around at some of the views found in this new park

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, in Japan.

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.


Part Fourteen: Vistas

Text by Al Lutz

Although we pretty much have completed our tour around the new park in the last thirteen installments - we do have a few more photos to show you. The following shots are of some of the vistas seen around the Mediterranean Harbor area. The next series of shots shows the stroll from Fortress Explorations back on over to the MiraCosta Hotel / Palazzo canals area of the park.

In this shot you can see the MiraCosta Hotel on the left edge of the photo, and the American Waterfront area of the park to the right. (Behind you is the Mt. Prometheus volcano and to the far right is Cape Cod.)

A look closer into the shot shows the details in the buildings (below) - keep in mind this is a bridge.

This view panning over slightly shows the green Electric Railway track that runs between the American Waterfront and Port Discovery.

The Electric Train has started its run (below) - note the Broadway Theater in the left top of the shot, and the detailing on the Waterfront buildings to the right.

Here's an even closer look (below) at a section of the above shot.

The train comes by the bridge you are on at about the same level - so you get a good look at it.

Below we have crossed the bridge shown above, and are now looking back at it from the canal area, with the hotel to the back of us. If you look at the left third of the shot, you can see the bridge.

See the stairway above? That's the same stairway in the far left of the shot below. This photo is of the MiraCosta Hotel.
