    Simple... WDC does not want you to find out how much better operated and beautiful the international resorts are over the domestic ones. :P God knows OLC does a dang fine job of running TDR, so why would WDC want the rest of the World how embarrasing their theme park division really is???

    Except the first year when Pooh opened. TDL held it's own against TDL. It was in their annual report.

    OH, well, they must be pissed at Travel Channel then, what with their one-hour special on "Disney's best well-kept secret" as they called it.

    So attendance is up yet we are still seeing some of the big events get scale down,like last years Christmas event.Where the Castle Show was reduced and OLC pulled a DLP by using its day time parade as the Christmas Parade.

    Is the attendance really that impressive when you look at how much yen was poured into TDS 5th Anniversary on shows and the Tower of Terror.This years attendance is going to be interesting to follow thats for sure with out any Anniversary to celebrate!

    That 99% of the visitors are Japanese is fairly obvious if you've been there. In an entire day at Disneysea, I counted eleven westerners besides myself. Other Asians would have been harder to pick out of the crowd, but I never heard any languages besides Japanese.

    Joe sent me the numbers, thank you Joe. Obviously there are few westerners but what I was curious about was attendence from other Asian countries.

    Here is the site Joe messaged me.

    Pooh's Hunny Hunt opened in 2000 when Tokyo DisneySea wasn't even open yet. And according to my research, that was the last year Tokyo Disneyland got 17 million visitors annually.

    An hour on DisneySea? I searched the Travel Channel website for it, could not find a search result at all for DisneySea, or Tokyo Disneyland or Tokyo Disney Resort.

    I saw that Travel Channel special on YouTube, but they have taken it down due to copyright laws being violated. To be honest, that special wasn't all that exciting. I can't quite put my finger on it, but it lacked the magic that I saw in some of the Japanese specials on Tokyo DisneySea.

    Maybe they stopped showing it because it was so out of date?

    Probably. They featured the Water Carnival before Donald's rubberhead make over like it was a perminate parade similar to WDW. They kind of sold it that way as well, which really didn't sit well with me.

    Anyone who is interested in downloading the Travel Channel special can do so here.

    Be advised that it's a very large torrent file.

    I just finished watching it and was quite impressed actually. Looks different than the one I saw on YouTube. This is the first time that I've seen the $3.3 billion figure mentioned for Tokyo DisneySea's budget.
