Tokyo Disneyland – World Bazaar

Tokyo Disneyland - World Bazaar

World Bazaar is the first themed area in Tokyo Disneyland. Resembling a small, carefree American town from the yesteryears, the Bazaar has two walkways that cross each other: Main Street and Center Street. This allows guests to travel to three themed zones of the park directly at the junction, through streets filled with several shops and restaurants.

Tokyo DisneySea – Mediterranean Harbor

Tokyo DisneySea - Mediterranean Harbor / Porto Paradiso

Mediterranean Harbor is the gateway to Tokyo DisneySea. Designed to resemble a seaport in Italy, the buildings in the area have design touches inspired by architecture from Portofino, Tuscany and Venice. This port city is filled with several shops and restaurants, but also uniquely integrates the world’s first and only themed hotel within a Disney park – the Tokyo DisneySea Hotel Miracosta.

Tokyo Disney Resort theme parks – Tips and Tricks

Tokyo Disneyland Gateway

Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea are huge Disney theme parks, with a lot of rides, shows to enjoy and countless places to explore. A day at either park is often not enough to cover most, or even half of the attractions.

Both theme parks are crowded most days of the year, but during some holiday periods, things get really out of control. You need a game plan to maximize your time.

Hong Kong Disneyland: Flights of Fantasy parade

Jumpin' Jungle Jam - intro

It’s time for dreams and imagination to soar. With astounding floats, colourful costumes and joyous sounds, Flights of Fantasy parade is an uplifting spectacle that is guaranteed to delight park guests at Hong Kong Disneyland. This is Hong Kong Disneyland’s current regular day-time parade, and was first unveiled as part of the park’s 5th Anniversary campaign – “Celebration in the Air”.

The Magic of Pixie Dust - Tinkerbell

The parade combines classic and new Disney characters, with many segments relevant to the park’s attractions. The seven parade floats are: Mickey’s Magical Airship, Caught Up in Daydreams (The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh), Romance Takes Wing (Disney Princesses), Jumpin’ Jungle Jam, The Magic of Pixie Dust (Tinker Bell), Hangin’ Ten and Ridin’ High (Lilo & Stitch), To Infinity and Beyond (Toy Story).

After the 5th Anniversary Celebration in the Air festivities, Flights of Fantasy continues to be performed daily at Hong Kong Disneyland. Elements referring to the 5th Anniversary (The number “5”) have been replaced with a “D” in Disney’s iconic typeface.

Flights of Fantasy feature vibrant and impressive floats – there are of course, an abundance of balloons, and balloon-like characters top off most of the floats. The parade also begins with a flying Dumbo (what else, really?) which is quickly accompanied with Mickey’s Airship. Everything is visually impactful – quite punchy colours and interesting forms.

Hong Kong Disneyland: Tomorrowland

Gateway to Tomorrowland

We’ve finally arrived at Tomorrowland, a space port of the future.

Tomorrowland is a staple themed zone in all Magic Kingdom-style Disney parks around the world. It’s like Sci-Fi meets Fantasyland – a optimistic view of the future with a focus on space travel and exploration.

Due to time constraints, I wasn’t able to spend a lot of time in Tomorrowland during this trip. I’ve decided to share mostly photos of this area at night, where smooth streaks of lights circle around this futuristic port.
