Hence the huge investment over the next few years. As a theme park fan, I like competition. :)

I might be going to Tokyo Disneyland next month. Super excited to finally see this park after all of the good things I have heard about it. Really bummed though that Universal is too far from Tokyo for the short amount of time we will be in Japan. I really want to ride JAWS and BTTF again :)

Don't miss DisneySea. It's a visually stunning theme park.
