... volcano on the horizon. At about a decade younger than Islands of Adventure and Animal Kingdom, Disney Seas has all the large scale impressiveness of its US cousins plus a bunch more of the whimsy and interactive treats that signal bigger, newer, better.
We know our Disney cousin well enough to have the Fastpass gig down pat. We start with FP's for Journey to the Center of the Earth and roam about the lands until ...
... a birthday party.
The fireworks were of course incredible. I once met a man that traveled around the work setting up firework displays. When I asked if he ever went to Japan, he laughed and said that the Japanese would never allow foreign companies to set up fireworks. Tokyo is known for a 10,000 firework display during one of their most important festivals. I can see why they would not want to give others that honor.

wins this one. Paris comes in dead last with its very rough ride and unnecessary

... elevator and you all fall to your death. The end. This was our 4th Tower of Terror ride (Orlando, Anaheim, Paris, and now Tokyo) so we’ll start to throw some comparisons in. This one was the best looking on the outside by far. Great artifacts and individual elevator rooms on the inside too. However, Orlando still wins for the extra dimension with the elevator traveling sideways and also the queue.
