is a theme park and vacation resort located in Urayasu, Chiba, Japan, just east of Tokyo (Coordinates: ). It is owned and operated by the Oriental Land Company with a license from The Walt Disney Company. The resort opened on April 15, 1983, as a single theme park (Tokyo Disneyland), but developed into a resort with two theme parks, two (Disney) hotels and a shopping complex. Tokyo Disneyland was the first Disney theme park opened outside the United States.
Tokyo Disney Resort has three main entertainment sections: Tokyo Disneyland, Tokyo DisneySea and Ikspiari, which is a variation of the Downtown Disney shopping, dining and entertainment area found at the Disney resorts in California and Florida. It also contains Bon Voyage!, which is the official Disney goods specialty shop of Tokyo Disney Resort. In October 2008, the resort will open a new theater housing an original Cirque du Soleil production, named "ZED."
Like the other Disney resorts, Tokyo Disney has numerous hotels. Its official hotels, the Tokyo DisneySea Hotel MiraCosta (the building in which the entrance to Tokyo DisneySea is located) and Disney Ambassador Hotel are the most expensive, yet they provide the best views of the parks and, many would argue, the most Disney-like overall experience. A third Disney hotel called the Tokyo Disneyland Hotel opened in July 2008. It is located in the parking lot in front of Tokyo Disneyland Station.
There are six other hotels located on the Tokyo Disney Resort property. These, however, are not Disney-branded hotels and are owned by other companies, similar to the Hotel Plaza Boulevard hotels at Walt Disney World.)
All facilities are linked by Disney Resort Line monorail.
The Tokyo Disney Resort is headed by Toshio Kagami, who is the secretary general (CEO) of the Oriental Land Company.
