Before going to the yearly schedule, let’s quickly review what Tokyo Disney Resort actually is. Tokyo Disney Resort is one of the six Disney resorts in the world, consisting of two parks being Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea. These two parks, even when seen separately, rank between the top most visited theme parks in the world.
