Welcome to Westernland at Tokyo Disneyland! This is the Tokyo version of Frontierland. This video just gives us a quick look at Westernland. So, let’s explore all Westernland has at Tokyo Disneyland.
As we make our way from Adventureland, the first attraction is the Country Bear Jamboree at the Country Bear Theatre. I miss the Country Bears at Disneyland here in California. So, it’s nice to see that other Disney theme parks are keeping this attraction alive! This Country Bears Jamboree is completely in Japanese! So, if you’ve ever wanted to ear the tunes that the Country Bears are known for in Japanese, you should check this show out! It’s kind of a trip.
Up next is the wildest ride in the west…or Westernland. I really like the queue line. From what I can see in the video, it looks very similar to the same attraction at the Magic Kingdom. This is the big E ticket attraction of Westernland.
Time to head out to Tom Sawyer Island! I love the Tom Sawyer Island at Tokyo Disneyland! It’s much larger than the one we have here in California! Plus, it’s still Tom Sawyer Island and not Pirates Lair. I love that they have a Fort. Seeing the Fort brought back so many memories of roaming around the Tom Sawyer Island we had here in California as a kid. I also love that they have an Indian Village and a make-shift graveyard. This is the best Tom Sawyer Island yet!
Our last attraction in Westernland is the Mark Twain Riverboat. This is a classic attraction at the Magic Kingdom style parks. It’s always fascinating to me when I get to experience an attraction I know in a different language. I think that most who have experienced this attraction at another Disney theme park know that it’s not as much about the narration as it is fun to ride on a riverboat and the views you get from the top deck.
Today, we’re also going to check out Critter Country because there isn’t a whole lot to explore. It looks like the Critter Country at Tokyo Disneyland is slightly larger than the one at Disneyland California. However, like Disneyland California, there are only two attractions to check out. What is fun about Tokyo Disneyland is that they have Country Bears in Westernland. Whereas, the Country Bears used to reside in Critter Country at Disneyland California. I love that different Disney parks get to keep classic attractions!
The first attraction in Critter Country is the Beaver Brothers Explorer Canoes. The video is short. However, it was about the only video I could find to capture this attraction. It’s obvious that the reason for lack of videos is that you really can’t paddle and video at the same time.
We’ll close this virtual trip to Tokyo Disneyland out with a ride on Splash Mountain. After watching this video, it is a really fun version of this attraction. If you’re a fan of drops on a flume ride, the Tokyo Disneyland version of Spash Mountain should not be missed as there are several drops in the ride. I like all the way this attraction mixes some thrills with good dark ride storytelling. It’s a shame that Disney won’t put out Song of the South so younger people will know the movie that Splash Mountain is based on. Oh well.
That’s all for this week. I hope you enjoyed our journey through Westernland and Critter Country. Next week, we’ll check out all that Fantasyland has to offer. So, please plan on coming back. Until then, have a great weekend!
