Fantasyland

Tokyo Disneyland: Fantasyland

As with all Castle Parks Fantasyland is the heart of the park. Fantasyland here is very reminiscent of the original Walt Disney World one with wide walkways and a mix of facades. There are a couple of unique attractions here. Pooh's Hunny Hunt is a trackless journey into the 100 acre woods. Cinderella's Fairy Tale Hall lets you explore the second floor of Cinderella Castle and see artwork and exhibits related to the film. This is in the space where the restaurant is at Walt Disney World. Note Fantasyland hosts the Haunted Mansion. As well as three classic dark rides, Peter Pan, Pinocchio and Snow White.

Geek's Thoughts & Observations

Unfortunately during my trip the signature attraction, Pooh's Honey Hunt was closed for renovation. I missed it by a couple of days! The rest of the land was open and thanks to the poor weather I was able to experience all the attractions with no real waits. Below are my first impressions of many -

My First Impressions:

  • It’s a Small World - seemed a mix of Anaheim and Orlando to me.  Nothing too noteworthy jumped out to me. It was just kind of there.  The music was on the loud side and the mix/quality did not seem the best to me.

  • Haunted Mansion - It seemed on par with the US versions. Nothing drastically different jumped out to me on my pass through.

  • Peter Pan - The ride seemed slightly longer than the US Versions. I did not take a video or run a stop watch but the impression was it seemed longer.

  • The Castle Carrousel - was operating at reduced capacity.. they only wanted guests on the outer two rows.    No indication of why.  It is sloped so maybe the wet ground?  Or just to give the impression it was busier than it really was?

  • Cinderella’s Fairy Tale Castle is a walk through of the castle.  It was not as good as I expected.  I do not know what I was expecting but I wanted more.   I guess I was thinking the Disneyland walkthrough but with the largeness of WDW.   In the end it was a couple nice rooms and displays but not a lot more. 

  • Mickey’s PhilharMagic - was the same show as WDW and Hong Kong.  I believe the preshow announcements were Japanese but I cannot remember if the little dialog in the show was.. I want to say it was English.

  • Pinocchio’s Daring Journey - Seemed faster paced, quicker moving ride vehicles, than Anaheim.  Also they seemed smaller.  Nothing about the ride itself stuck out to me.

  • Queen of Hearts Banquet Hall - This evening it was more crowded than yesterday which translated into a 15 minute wait in line or so.  Not bad but compared to the easy walk through of yesterday.  
    Tip – If you are looking to save a little money.. a drink inside is 300 yen.  There are vending machines right outside restaurant and they are 210 yen for a Coke.

  • Alice’s Tea Party a spin - Doing it after dinner is not the best move but I was going to take some pictures/video so I was not planning to spin fast.   The tea cups seemed to spin a little easier or maybe it was because I was not trying? 

  • Dumbo - It is a classic style Dumbo, guessing it was the original from 1983 still?   Was really surprised when the cast members started gesturing at me about pictures/video while on board.  I have never experienced that on Dumbo..  but they were fairly adamant about nothing while onboard.

  • Snow White’s Adventure -  It is not called a Scary Adventure here.. but it just as scary as the one at Disneyland.
