Tokyo Disney Resort
Walt Disney Parks and Resorts
Tokyo Disney ResortSince it opened in April 1983, the Tokyo Disney Resort has been a truly magical place for its guests. Just twelve kilometers from central Tokyo, Tokyo Disney Resort contains two Disney theme parks — Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea — three Disney-branded hotels and Ikspiari, an exciting shopping, dining and entertainment district. The resort is owned and operated by Japan’s Oriental Land Company under license from Disney Enterprises, Inc. Tokyo Disneyland, which opened in April 1983, was the first Disney theme park built outside of the U.S. and has become Japan’s most popular family destination. Tokyo DisneySea, opened in September 2001, is a unique Disney park themed to the myths and stories of the sea, all in the grand tradition of Disney-style family entertainment.
Tokyo Disney Resort
The overwhelming majority of Tokyo Disney Resort’s guests come from Japan — more than two- thirds are from Greater Tokyo — and many visit multiple times each year. Because of the high repeat visitation, Tokyo Disney Resort regularly changes entertainment offerings and introduces new shows and attractions to keep pace with the demand for fresh experiences. Every year, and every season, there is something new.
Because of its ownership structure, Tokyo Disney Resort’s community activities are led by the Oriental Land Company of Japan, with support and encouragement from The Walt Disney Company. Tokyo Disney Resort is dedicated to delivering Disney dreams to those who are unable to visit the resort. Since 1983, Tokyo Disney Resort Ambassadors and Disney characters have visited more than 1,340 facilities nationwide, including pediatric wards in hospitals, facilities for people with disabilities, special needs schools and nursing homes. The resort’s ambassadors and characters visited more than 45 such facilities. Tokyo Disney Resort is also a supporter of the Make-A-Wish Foundation in Japan. In addition, the Music Festival Program at Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea provides opportunities for children and amateur groups to showcase their talents for our guests. This program is modeled after a similar initiative at the Disneyland Resort in California that started with Walt Disney himself.
The Oriental Land Company, the owner/operator of Tokyo Disney Resort, employs more than 20,000 Cast Members. Through its wide variety of business activities — including tourism, production of goods, provision of services, construction and maintenance — it is a major driver of economic activity in the Tokyo and Chiba prefectural areas. Moreover, the Oriental Land Company adheres to a strict code of compliance to uphold high standards of business ethics, and encourages its partner firms to do the same.
The Tokyo Disney Resort operates according to the Oriental Land Company Group Environmental Policy, which takes a wide range of environmental considerations into account throughout all business operations. The policy calls for awareness and efforts to reduce waste and pollution that contributes to climate change and promote energy conservation, green purchasing, and recycling in all aspects of its business operations. Since introducing this policy in 2007, Tokyo Disney Resort has begun replacing all vehicles with hybrid and other low-emission models, with the goal of reducing carbon dioxide emissions by 5 percent by 2017. Additionally, Cast Members are strongly encouraged to use public transportation to commute to and from work. Other measures include the installation of energy management systems to boost transparency of energy usage, introduction of LED lighting systems within office buildings and electrical decorations for nighttime parades, and installation of solar panels in available locations. At Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea, paper waste has been reduced by eliminating paper towels in most restrooms and installing paperless hand dryers. Paper and plastic waste is being reduced by introducing non-disposable metal and chinaware dishes at dining facilities. Moreover, waste at Tokyo Disney Resort is separated, often by hand, based on detailed standards in order to recycle as much as possible. The materials are then sent to consignment recycling companies. Nearly 100 percent of raw waste, which includes kitchen waste, leftover food and unsold foods at its parks is recycled.
