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.
There are seven themed areas in the park: the World Bazaar; the four classic Disney lands: Adventureland, Westernland, Fantasyland and Tomorrowland; and two mini-lands:
Critter Country and Mickey’s Toontown. The park is noted for its extensive open spaces, to accommodate the large crowds that visit the park.3 In 2009,
Tokyo Disneyland hosted approximately 13.65 million guests, ranking it as the third-most visited theme park in the world, behind its American sister parks,
Magic Kingdom and Disneyland.4 In 2010, the park hosted 14.4 million visitors, again ranking it as the world’s third most visited theme park.
