Popular to both locals and foreigners, it’s obvious that Tokyo DisneySea is one of the unmissable family destinations in Asia. With its seven themed areas or also known as Port of Call, it is impossible for kids (and kids at heart!) of any age not to find an area they love.

Located behind Mount Prometheus, the Mermaid Lagoon is targeted to attract the younger audiences of the park with its captivating interior. Aside from the intricately designed underwater world of Ariel, have the little ones enjoy riding several attractions. Let them try Jumpin’ Jellyfish, Flounder’s Flying Fish Coaster, Blowfish Balloon Race and a whole lot more.

As for thrill-seekers, go straight to the Mysterious Island where the home of Tokyo DisneySea’s top attractions are located. Ride the Terravator and experience going on a Journey to the Center of the Earth. Plunge into 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea using a submarine and discover its buried secrets.

Viyahe tip: Themed parks can get extremely crowded, especially on weekends. Therefore, purchase a FastPass for your favorite attractions to maximize your stay in the park and avoid queueing for hours. Best to purchase these passes online even though they are available in the park itself since they get sold out easily.
