    I was transported to Cape Code at Tokyo Disneysea. With yatchs and fishing boats out at sea, dockside warehouses, a miniature lighthouse and white picket fences all painted in white, it was like a scene out of an American period movie - erhm, except that most of the extras were Japanese! LOL

    For a look around Cape Cod and the Town Hall with Clock tower, click on to see my other pics. It is similar to the Town Hall in Anaheim, but slightly smaller.

    The Disney Transit Steamers bound for the Mediterranean Harbour begin their journey here. Take note that the steamers do not return to back to this Lost River Delta stop.

    The ride on the river which allows you a good overview of all the various places of interest,
    covers Mermaid Lagoon, the Arabian Coast and Mysterious Island, before stopping off at the Mediterranean Harbour.

    Photo with your favourite Disney character

    who's afraid of the Big Bad Wolf?
    2 more images

    One of the activities that many young teenage Japanese girls seem to enjoy at DisneySea is tracking down their favourite Disney chartacter and posing for a photo with him or her. Sounds easy, doesn't it? But you know what? Some of the characters are not easy to catch. For example, Chip and Dale, the lookalike Disney chipmunks simply love to run around, turning up at unexpected places and will duck out of sight just to have a bit of fun.

    Minnie and Mickey are crowd favourites and you would have to wait your turn before you can shake hands or pose with him or her.

    How well did I do? hehe, I did quite well and managed to get my picture taken with sweet Minnie Mouse, the elegantly dressed Big Bad Wolf from Red Riding Hood and cute little Pinocchio and yes, one of those mischievious pesky chipmunkcs. (see pics)

    At the American Waterfront, you can take a ride in all sorts of fancy cars, fire trucks and police wagons. The drivers will stop to pick up passengers at various points around the New York and Cape Cod areas of American Waterfront.

    There are replicas of old cars that are displayed here. It is picturesque and provides for good photo-taking opportunities.

    There are a few rather nice full-service restaurants and food carts for snacks.

    Live entertainment

    Entertainers

    One of the nice things going on at Tokyo DisneySea is the on-going live entertainment taking place at various parts of the park. The cast and crew get dressed up in costumes and interact with the crowd.

    At the American Waterfront, for example, we watched a group of 6 or so entertainers putting on a great show with magic acts, juggling, dancing and singing. The group even featured a number of kids who performed handstands and acrobatics. Unlike in other parts of the park where the bulk of the crew was Japanese, the group performing here was appeared to be American.

    For more pictures, please check out my American Waterfront Entertainers album

    Mexican Delights

    Mexican cart

    At the Lost River Delta are a number of great foor outlets. In the previous tip, I mentioned the food cart Expedition Eats - where we tried the Yucatan Sausage Rolls.
    Well, after exploring the ruins with Indiana Jones, I was really hungry so we had a bite to eat at the Yucatan Base Camp Grill. The smell of the food here was so delicious, how could anyone resist? They had delightful barbequed meats, fresh salads and delicious looking deserts (which I was too full to try). The staff are dressed in a Tex-Mex style and add to the Mexican theme.

    Lost River Delta

    exploring with Indiana Jones

    Those who have seen the Indiana Jones Adventure Movies would love this place. It has an authentic looking tall Mayan (?) Temple set beside the meandering river. The attention to detail is fabulous - with tropical trees, wild orchids (!), chirping of tropical birds (although I didn't actually see any), and large fire torches.

    I enjoyed the Indiana Jones Adventure ride quite a bit - it did shake me up a bit. (haha). If I am not wrong, I did try out a similar ride at Disneyland LA when I was there years ago.

    One of the best things here was the food cart in front of the temple of the Crystal Skull. Check out the Yucatan Sausage Rolls that were sold at Expedition Eats-they were cheap and delicious!

    Meet Jasmine & Aladdin at Tokyo DisneySea

    by Wild_Orchid Updated Jul 15, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    me and Jasmine

    There are seven major ports of call at Disney Sea. If you have young kids with you, they will enjoy the Arabian Coast and Mermaid Lagoon.

    At the Arabian Coast, you can sail on a boat with Sinbad the Sailor as he sets out on his voyage to explore the mysteries of the unknown sea. Or join the beautiful two-level carousel, that features elephants, horses and even the wise blue Genie from the famous animated movie, Aladdin.

    To rest your tired feet, why not drop in to the Magic Lamp Theatre for a light show that has a cast of dancing magicians?

    The Aladdin's Whole New World live show that takes place at the Mediterranean Harbour was on from May till August 2005, but unfortunately, we missed the performance due to lack of time.

    The Mediterranean Harbour

    by Wild_Orchid Written Jul 15, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Upon entering DisneySea and past the huge fountain with the rotating Globe on it (see my cover pics), and if you don't get distracted by any wandering live Disney Characters, you will soon find yourself in an amazingly realistic mediterranean town.

    As you walk down the cobblestones, you will feel like you have been transported to Venice or some other European town! The walls of the buildings have been done up in bright yellow and golden shades, with authentic looking trelises and flower filled balconies. Quite a few shops, bakeries and restaurants are housed within these buildings.

    Just how authentic?
    When I showed my friend a photo of the Mediterranean Harbour at Tokyo DisneySea, she said: Oh, when did you go to Venice? I thought you had gone to Tokyo?

    The picture shows me posing with the Genie from Aladdin who is pretending to be a Venetian Gondolier!

    Journey to the Centre of the Earth

    Journey to the Center of the Earth

    Details from Jules Verne's science fiction novel, Journey to the Centre of the Earth feature strongly in the set for this ride.

    Located at the port called the Mysterious Island, this is the BEST & MOST POPULAR RIDE in DisneySea. The set is very authentic, and as you descend the inner bowels of the earth, with full sound, smoke and eerie air effects, you will feel an increase in your level of excitement. Mums & dads, don't worry too much, it is dark, but not too scary. If your kids pass the height requirements, do allow them to join in.

    You and them will have the time of your life! I won't say too much, in order not to be a spoiler. :D

    Insider tip: For thrill seekers, try to get a seat in the front seat of each little car. I think there were 4-5 seats in each car, and two to three per row. As it was not crowded that Friday that we were there, we were allowed a bit of choice and managed to get a front row seat.
