There are a million (ok, 75) pictures here, so let’s just jump in.
The entry way to Disney Sea.
The line area of Toy Story Mania (aka, Shooting Targets, aka, the girls’ favorite ride.) in the American Waterfront area. This area also has Tower of Tower and Turtle Talk, neither of which we did- the first because the girls and terror don’t get along, and the second because it’s all in Japanese.
The Mediterranean Harbor. It really is this gorgeous. The Venetian gondolas are here.
Fortress Exploration (More detail to come later in the post.)
My favorite part of the park- Mysterious Island.Â
Entrance to 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea.
I don’t have pictures of Journey to the Center of the Earth, but it is now my favorite ride as far as visuals go. It is just absolutely gorgeous. Â If you go to Disney Sea, I recommend heading to Journey very first thing, while everyone else is in line for Toy Story Mania. The line is really short first thing, and then gets absolutely insane later in the day. The line area is really well designed, with lots of really cool things to look at.Â
Look at that detail!
Mermaid Lagoon is the equivalent of Radiator Springs at CA Adventure- a whole indoor replica of Ariel’s world. These pictures don’t do it justice, but taking pictures in this lighting was difficult.Â
This area has the rides Jumping Jellyfish, Blowfish Balloon Race, The Whirlpool (which Z thinks should be called The Seacups) , as well as Ariel’s Playground, which, as you might guess, is an Ariel themed play area. It’s really pretty and the girls had a great time in there.
There are two other rides, Flounder’s Flying Fish Coaster (the girls LOVED it) and Scuttle’s Scooters which we didn’t get around to.
The popcorn/snack carts around Mermaid Lagoon were really well designed.Â
Entrance to Arabian CoastÂ
Lost River Delta, which has the Indiana Jones ride (which we skipped- too bumpy for Z and Tiny’s not tall enough.)
More from the Arabian Coast
Sinbad’s Storybook Voyage is a gorgeous little ride. You ride in boats like It’s a Small World and go through Sinbad’s journeys. The design and detail is just beautiful.
Jasmine’s Flying Carpets
The view from the carpets
A show with Mickey, Minnie, the Duffy bears, and a magician.
Raging Spirits, the upside down roller coaster. Z likes this one.
The view from DisneySea Transit Steamer Line, which functions as the train at the park.
More design around Mysterious Island. I could stay here ALL DAY.
Fortress Exploration. This area is SO COOL. It’s set up like a circa Columbus/Magellan era fortress and galleon, complete with hands on scientific innovations of the time.
This planetarium room was amazing, and impossible to capture in a picture. There are cranks you can turn to make each of the planets rotate around the sun- it’s really so cool.
A boat game.
Port Discovery. We didn’t ride anything here- Aquatopia (a water “car” ride) was closed, and Stormrider is one of those 3D simulator things that makes me feel sick-Â but it was so cool looking. It looked like how I remember Tomorrowland looking when I was little. I don’t know if it ever actually looked like this, but it’s what it looks like in my memory.
Genie fountain. I love it.
The carousel from the outside.
New family portrait?
