It's Disneyland, but in Japanese!
Being that I'm a Southern California native, Disneyland is in my backyard and I know it well. Going to Tokyo Disneyland, it's very similar but different. There are definitely things that are exactly the same, and things that are the same, but different.
We happened to be visiting during Halloween, and this year they let adults dress up in costume as long as it was Disney related - whether it was a character from a movie or even people in the parades at the park. It was a pretty amazing site to see. People are SO INTO dressing up. And I mean head to toe, total dedication. There was one little girl dressed at Malicifent that was amazing. I'm sure the costume was purchased, but she embodied the character. And she didn't seem to know that she was acting like Malicifent. Once people started asking her to take pictures, that's when the 5 year old came out and ran off to her parents.
Many of the rides are the same, Star Tours (but in Japanese), Country Bear Time Theater (mixed Japanese and English), Haunted Mansion, the Fantasyland rides, Space Mountain, etc. But there were also rides we don't have at home or we do but the ones here are completely different.
My favorite ride by far was the Pooh's Hunny Hunt. It's in Japanese but the ride is pretty cool. Throw away what you know as the Pooh ride at Disneyland in California, this is nothing like it. You sit in a hunny pot and on an invisible track you run through the story. There is a room that smells like honey and a room where you bounce with Tigger. Monster's Inc Ride and Go Seek is also a ride that is different from the Monster's Inc ride at Disney's California Adventure. This ride is more like Astroblasters in that you get a "flashlight" to spot the "M"s to pop up monsters. A lot of fun.
They do have fireworks every night here as well, but I swear I think it lasts like 5 mins. It's nothing like what we are used to at Disneyland and Magic Kingdom.
You can't help but compare rides when they are the same as well as the park layout. There are rides that are in one land at Disneyland but in a different land here. Make sure to have that map handy.
Overall, loved my time at Tokyo Disneyland. We had a lot of fun.

Reached there when it opened and came out after it closed. Its too much fun. Best attractions - Space Mountain, the parades and the fireworks. Don't forget to click a photo next to million smiles. Avoid weekends. Vegetarians - carry own food.

The only Disneyland I have ever visited, I loved it. It was truly the happiest place on Earth, I felt like a little girl again and would have never left it. I was tearing up when it was time to go home.. Fantastic!

Tokyo Disneyland was interesting and I was surprised at the amount of english on signs. Do that many english speakers really come here? The park is cleaner than clean and everyone is very polite, making this perhaps the "friendliest place on earth", even if Anaheim was the first.
It's easy to get to by train from Tokyo, so I made a day trip out of it even though there are plenty of Disney hotels there.
Much of the park was similar to other Disney parks. The Pooh's Hunny Hunt ride was much more advanced than any other ride I've been on. Instead of travelling on tracks, the carriages propel themselves and coordinate with the ones around them to swirl around each other.

Many of the rides are the same as the California Disneyland; the outside layout varies however so it's interestin to see. Popcorn is something to definitely try, so many different flavors! During the summer they had a festival/show, that reflected some Japanese culture, so it was nice to see Disney characters Japanese style!
