Tokyo Disneyland (東京ディズニーランド Tōkyō Dizunīrando) is a 115-acre (46.5 ha) theme park at the Tokyo Disney Resort located in Urayasu, Chiba, Japan, near Tokyo. Its main gate is directly adjacent to both Maihama Station and Tokyo Disneyland Station. It was the first Disney park to be built outside of the United States and opened on April 15, 1983. The park was constructed by Walt Disney Imagineering in the same style as Disneyland in California and Magic Kingdom in Florida. It is owned by The Oriental Land Company, which licenses the theme from The Walt Disney Company. Tokyo Disneyland and its companion park, Tokyo DisneySea, are the only Disney parks not owned by The Walt Disney Company.

The park features 7 lands, lands include World Bazaar, a variation of Main Street with a glass canopy, Adventureland, Westernland (a renamed Frontierland), Critter Country, Fantasyland, Toontown and Tomorrowland.

The park was built by Disney's Imagineers during the early 80s, to the specifications of the Oriental Land Company. The company asked Disney for a near replica of the Magic Kingdom, in Florida, with the best of Disneyland along the way. The pavements were built very large to accommodate the large Japanese crowds, but in later years as attenadance has slowly declined some paths have been shortened, freeing up space for attractions. To this day the hub, which is usually quite small at other parks, is a massive expanse of pavement, occasionally disrupted with the odd statue or bench.

It is also the only park not surrounded by a train. Although it does not have train surrounding the park, it has a similar train called Western River Railroad that only goes around Adventureland, Frontierland and Critter Country.

Dedication

To all of you who come to this happy place, welcome. Here you will discover enchanted lands of Fantasy and Adventure, Yesterday and Tomorrow. May Tokyo Disneyland be an eternal source of joy, laughter, inspiration, and imagination to the peoples of the world. And may this magical kingdom be an enduring symbol of the spirit of cooperation and friendship between the great nations of Japan and the United States of America. -E. Cardon Walker, April 15, 1983
