Feel free to use it to post updates, trip reports, questions, comments, and of course, general discussion. For pictures and videos of these park as well as past updates, see TPR's Tokyo Disneyland Park Index Page

I like the Tokyo design. I think it is great to have other designs at each Disney Park. I am so curious how the Paris design will be?

i wonder if the ride will be different than the ones in america. I think they are good rides.

wow.. It is amazing how fast it is going up! I've gotta plan another Japan trip! The major change is a lack of Twilight Zone theming and the twist of the new york theme. It should be great (just like everything at TDS

I see no forced perspective tricks on this baby.
Intimidating! Anyone know the official height? Can't find it online.
