Tokyo Disney Resort, which opened in 1983, is a popular and high-volume theme park. Though designed by the famed Walt Disney Imagineers in the style of the original Disneyland in California, Tokyo Disney Resort is the only Disney park not owned by the Walt Disney Company. Tokyo Disneyland has a sister theme park, Tokyo DisneySea, and several hotels.
Visitors to Tokyo Disneyland can explore seven themed areas, including the classic four "lands" from the original Disneyland in California: Fantasyland, Tomorrowland, Adventureland, and Westernland (which has had a name change from "Frontierland"). Also familiar from Disneyland California are the Critter Country area and Mickey's Toon Town. A monorail moves people around the Resort.
