    REPORTED: Takehiro Kaneko 10 MAY 96

  2. Port Disney Official! - Originally planned for Long Beach, the Disney Sea Project is heading to Tokyo Bay and it's a lot bigger than I had ever conceived! Several themed areas are linked together by a universal waterway that is plied by various watercraft.

    The Lost River Delta is an adventure-themed area with jungles, idols, dangerous creatures and the second planned version of the Indiana Jones Adventure.

    Mermaid Lagoon is a whimsical section that features a carnival-type attraction that features Ursula from "The Little Mermaid" and a unique bumper-boat attraction called the Aquatopia.

    The American Waterfront is styled to look like a nice, 20th Century city skyline, and on that skyline is a high-rise skyscraper that, unbeknownst to visitors, will contain the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror. The only version of this attraction planned outside of the United States.

    The Arabian Coast features attractions based on the film "Aladdin" as well as other newly created storylines for dark rides and shows.

    The Mysterious Island is a crater, craggy and imposing in the center of the park. Here, submarines shaped like the Nautilus dive into the deep unknown, and one can even take a Journey To The Center of The Earth. An attraction utilizing EMV's (Enhanced Motion Vehicles), this promises to be a heart stopping descent into the very ground below this island, culminating in an encounter with one of the largest Audio Animatronic creatures ever created.

    Aquatopia-Takes guests on a boat ride through whirlpools and something called a "water vanguard."

    Journey To The Center Of The Earth-Launching from within a huge volcanic crater, these EMV's (Enhanced Motion Vehicles) will take you on a thrilling journey to meet up with a ferocious subterranean creature.

    The Port Disney Electric Railway is an elevated train that transports passengers from one side of the park to the other.

    Disney Sea is currently undergoing site evaluation and financing. I'm as of yet unaware of a completion date.
