As the “Tokyo DisneySea 20th: Time To Shine!” celebration continues, marking the 20th anniversary of the park, cast members and guests are enjoying spectacular attractions, dazzling entertainment and exclusive tastes.

Tokyo DisneySea

Opened in 2001, Tokyo DisneySea is the first and only Disney theme park celebrating the myths and legends of the sea. Over the past 20 years, Tokyo DisneySea has taken guests on epic voyages of romance, adventure, discovery and fun, with unique experiences that can’t be found anywhere else.

To celebrate this special milestone, we wanted to take a look at some fan-favorite experiences. Let’s dive in!

Exciting Attractions: From Mediterranean Harbor to Port Discovery, Arabian Coast to Mysterious Island and everywhere in between, there are magical adventures to be had at attractions across the park! 

Set sail to find the greatest treasure of all on Sinbad’s Storybook Voyage. Join Sinbad the sailor and his loyal tiger cub Chandu for an epic journey, following “the compass of your heart,” with music from Disney Legend, Alan Menken.

At Journey to the Center of the Earth, Captain Nemo has unearthed an unknown world deep underground. As you board a unique subterranean vehicle, prepare for an adventure that even the famed captain has never seen before.

Over at 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, you can board one of Captain Nemo’s submarine boats and join him in the search for the ancient city of Atlantis, said to have sunk to the bottom of the ocean long ago.

Enchanting Entertainment: A visit isn’t complete without taking in some of the stellar sights and songs of Tokyo DisneySea shows!
