Tokyo Disneyland – Adventureland

Tokyo Disneyland - Adventureland

Adventureland at Tokyo Disneyland is a mix of places, but still holds the original spirit of being a land of exploration and exotic adventures. It is home to classic Disneyland attractions such as Pirates of the Caribbean and Jungle Cruise.

The section closest to World Bazaar is just like New Orleans Square at Disneyland, complete with Pirates of The Caribbean, a classic Disney attraction. The area then slowly blends into a Spanish fishing town and further on: a town set in an exotic jungle.

Here’s the classic Adventureland entrance, if you walk from the Castle Hub:

Scattered around the park are these mist sprays, to keep guests cool during the summer months.

The path leads to some sort of exotic village and marketplace area.

The Adventureland Bazaar is the main retail store for this area. For some reason we walked past it several times, promising to find something, but ended up forgetting about it. There’s probably some unique Stitch items inside. Oh well.

This is where you find some key attractions:

There are two paths that lead to the other end of Adventureland (closer to World Bazaar). This one takes us through some sort of fishing village (there’s even a boat docked here, somehow).

It seems like a popular dining destination. This China Voyager restaurant, for example, had a really long queue.

Moving on. The other side of Adventureland is really… New Orleans Square.

Doesn’t this place look.. familiar?

The entrance to the famous Blue Bayou Restaurant. We didn’t dine here since we spent quite a bit at Magellan’s just a day before.

While New Orleans Square doesn’t seem to merge with the rest of Adventureland, it blends in very well with World Bazaar. It’s so subtle, it’s hard to tell that you’ve stepped into a different place.

This is the side of World Bazaar that faces the New Orleans section.

Flash forward to evening time…

I like to walk around the New Orleans section at night. There’s something charming about the way the lights interact with the architecture here.

The Pirates of the Caribbean building, known to some Disney Parks fans as Lafitte’s Mansion. I think we went on the ride like seven times, including one rather creepy one – we had our own boat. There’s something chilling about sitting at the first row with no one behind us.

Jungle Cruise was the attraction with the longest wait time all day (until late at night). We gave this a miss because we went on it before, and it’s pretty awkward when you can’t respond to the Skipper (cast member hosting the tour) in Japanese.

And this tall tiered-tower structure is a landmark for The Enchanted Tiki Room.

Stitch presents ALOHA E KOMO MAI!

This is the classic animatronic show with Stitch taking over. Most of the songs are featured in the first Lilo and Stitch movie.

The actual show starts off in a cosy theater, where birds and plants, hanging from the ceiling, start to sing. Strange sounds and things happen, and the show’s performers fear that the Big Kahuna is angry with their performance.

Well, turns out it’s just Stitch.

I watched the previous version of the Tiki Room (known as “Get the Fever!”) before. This new updated version had a fair bit of changes. The figures in the waiting room, hidden behind this rotating column, are no longer used, for example..

Overall, it’s an entertaining show and worth the wait just to view the Stitch audio-animatronic, as well as a whole network of animated figures. I know singing flowers and totem poles aren’t the most realistic thing, but it’s nice to see an attraction where everything is working and synced perfectly to the sound effects and music. This version of the show, with Stitch, is exclusive to Tokyo Disneyland. Strangely, the classic Tiki Room theme song (“In the tiki, tiki, tiki, tiki, tiki room!”) was not part of the show.

The English Subtitle device is available here, so do grab one from the cast members if you want to understand the show.

Western River Railroad

There’s no Disneyland Railroad at Tokyo Disneyland, due to Japan’s regulation on rail. If a similar railway was built in Tokyo Disneyland, including multiple stops, it would need to be managed like an actual railway, including having timetables and accepting using fare cards and things like JR Pass.

So instead of that, Western River Railroad is a leisurely sight-seeing ride that brings guests around the rivers of Adventureland and Westernland. It also weaves around Big Thunder Mountain. There is a surprise element – the Primeval World display when the train turns into a dark cave.

This is a really high capacity ride. Each row can sit up to 6 adults comfortably?

There are a lot of things to see, and I think sitting on the right-side gives the best view of everything – especially for the rivers and indoor segment.

It’s probably hard to see but the cast members at the building (Mark Twain Riverboat) were actually waving back! Cast members love to wave back at guests on transportation rides at both parks.

At one section, the train will pass by Big Thunder Mountain. If you’re on the left side of the bench, you get awesome views of the theming. And sometimes, another train!

The next stop: Pirates of the Caribbean. A classic Disney attraction that was updated in 2007 with new effects and animatronics.
