Adventureland

Tokyo Disneyland - Adventureland

Advetureland is in the traditional castle park location of the first land on the left side of the park. The land has a couple of different regions including a New Orleans area, more of an Island feel/ a South Seas area, and some jungle.

The Jungle Cruise was updated in 2014 and is now called the Jungle Cruise: Wildlife Expeditions. It featured some upgraded effects, music in a couple areas, and a general refresh.

The Western River Railroad boards directly above the Jungle Cruise queue. The trains here operate as an attraction and not a transportation mode. They go in a circle around Adventureland then pass by Critter Country and cut through Westernland. The only station is in Adventureland.

The New Orleans area houses Pirates of the Caribbean, some shops, dining, and an outdoor theatre.

Other traditional Adventureland favorites such as the Tree House and Tiki Room are also present.

Geek's Thoughts & Observations

Tokyo Disneyland: Adventureland

The transition from World Bazaar to Adventureland from the side street was a bit awkward.. you leave small town America and are in New Orleans in a few steps. Transition from the central plaza is more traditional with a walkway and arch. Also interesting is New Orleans without any water nearby.

My first impressions:

  • The first area you come to is New Orleans.. and Pirates.  It was very surreal to walk up to the front entrance of Pirates.. no bridge or separation.  Also no river in the vicinity.   The ride itself was again a mix of WDW and Disneyland.  It seemed slightly longer than WDW but shorter than Disneyland. 

  • The Jungle Cruise was updated last year and is called the Jungle Cruise: Wildlife Expeditions now.   The sets looked great and there is even some music now.   Unfortunately it is only offered in Japanese so I have no idea the jokes or spiel but the skipper was really into it and extremely animated.   The other guests really seemed to be enjoying what she was saying.

  • The Western River Railroad is in Adventureland too.   Here the steam trains are an attraction where you ride round trip around some of Adventureland then the Rivers of America and Westernland.  You also go by the Primeval Dinorama (no Grand Canyon here).  The trains are smaller (both in terms of the number of cars and the space in the row).  I enjoyed the tour.  Others thought it was a little long and they were not as interested.

  • The Enchanted Tiki Room in Tokyo has been taken over by Stitch and it is called the Enchanted Tiki Room: Stitch Presents “Alohe E Komo Mail!”   I thought this was ok.. Stitch fits the Hawaiian/Polynesian theme but I still enjoy the classic show more.  This attraction had English subtitles available via a handheld device.  This was helpful.
