I worked at Disneyland Paris. Fun park, but missing some stuff. Where's Splash Mountain? Why is that portable, temporary Indiana Jones rollercoaster still there? Space Mountain is among the roughest coaster in the world, plus, those idiots in marketing convinced the park to remove most of the effects and the great soundtrack in the 2005 rehab!
Disney Sea is a nothing like the studios. There's no comparision. It's the greatest themepark ever built and completely unique on the planet. It alone is worth going half way across the globe for. *** Edited 6/1/2007 8:18:08 AM UTC by Peabody***

Has anyone ever been to a Dianeyland outside of the U.S.
Of course not. Nobody has ever been to any of the other Disney parks. They've been open for years, but no guests have been there.
Please exclude Disney World from the mix because we all know that Disney World is the best already.
Not in my opinion. I've been to them all, and the Tokyo one is the king of the crop.
The reason you hear about Florida beign the best is that's where most Americans go so that's what they talk about. How many actually go oversees, or even go to California over Florida? (California is mostly atended by people on the West coast, despite their huge attendence)
As for a trip report, here's the short writeup I did for DisneySea. Never did get to finishing that gallery. Sigh...

Seriously I hear incredible things about TD...can any park live up to all that hype?
And Tokyo DisneySea? Oh. My. God. DisneySea is astounding. Beautiful. A park on a very small piece of land that feels expansive. Wonderful unique attractions (I'm especially fond of Seven Voyages of Sinbad, or as we nicknamed it, It's A Small Sinbad (and those of you who have ridden it know what I mean)).
Life is something that happens when you can't get to sleep.
$400 Million US spent on Walt Disney Studios Paris.
$4+ Billion spent on Disney Sea
Nuff Said :)
Roughly $20 Million US spent on each Stateside Pooh ride. On a packed July visit for me the DL Pooh had a 3 minute wait.
$160 Million spent on Japanese Pooh. It had a 4 hour wait when I was there. (The fastpass line was so huge it took 45 minutes for me to get one....totally worth it. Most amazing ride ever!) *** Edited 6/3/2007 2:45:38 PM UTC by Peabody***
Their Pooh ride is astounding.
That's understating it. I think it took us 30 minutes to pick our jaws back up off the ground the first time we rode Tokyo Disney's Pooh ride :)
Instead of a week long trip to WDW again in a few years we're likely going to do 4-5 days in Tokyo. If you play your cards right the cost can be near the same, especially if you stay at a non-budget resort at WDW.

Also there is great videos of Disneyland Tokyo and attractions if you go to Youtube.com
From what I saw with Pooh's Hunny hunt was crazy. Made me want to start packing my bags. Also that Storm Chasers simulator looks great. That should take the spot of the body wars buliding at EPCOT.
Youtube also has great vid. for Journey to the Center of the Earth.
On my computer I have full on-ride video of every ride in every Disney park on the globe...all 11 parks....many in HD. I kid you not....no lie. Most defunct rides as well with a few early Disneyland exceptions (Flying Saucers, Pack Mules, etc.) I have 4 excelent vids of Pooh, one on a DVD . Anyone interested can contact me. Richard, Greg...check your mail.
You may now make fun of me and mock me :)
