Differences between Tokyo Disney Land and Orland Disney world

 Last week, I visited to 2 theme parks of Disney World in Orlando, Hollywood Studios and Animal Kingdom. I`ve seen and thought so many differences from Tokyo Disney Land, so I`d like to talk about it.

1. Size

Orlando one is literally "world". It has 4 theme parks and water parks, Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Animal Kingdom, Hollywood Studios, Blizzard Beach, and Typhoon Lagoon. In addition, it has a variety of official Disney hotels in the area. It`s too huge to walk through from a park to another one. So I had to use a bus to move to park to park. Tokyo one also has 2 theme parks and is big enough that people hang around, but you don`t have to use transportation to go to another theme park from a one where you are.

2. Live action movie area

Orlando one has specific areas that is based on live action movie which became one of Disney movies later in each theme parks. When it comes to parks that I visited, Hollywood Studios has Star Wars area, and Animal Kingdom has Avatar area. Both areas are made elaborately, so not only kids, but also even huge adult fans of those movies can be satisfied with quality. I was touched and excited as a one of movie fan. On the other hand, in Tokyo one, there are no sort of those kinds of areas. I mean there are attractions which is based on live action movies too, but they are just a part of a specific genre theme area. For instance, Star Wars attraction is located in the area which is called "Tomorrow Land". It is kind of future and science area but not "Star Wars" area. Instead of that, there are many specific Disney animation areas like Aladdin, Little Mermaid, beauty and beast, Toy Story and more new ones they are constructing now. I guess there are more animation movie demands for Japanese than the U.S.

3. Guests

I`ve seen a bunch of family group in Orlando one. Of course there are families in Tokyo one too but not as much as Orlando. Actually, when I told my coworkers that I would go to Disney World, she said that it`s been a while since she had been there with her family when she was child. However, in Tokyo one, you can see more young people and that they hang out with their partner or friends there. So I think there is different typical image for Disney parks each other country. In U.S., people think that Disney parks are for family more like for children, in contrast, in Japan, people think that it is for not only family but also for young people. This is just my conjecture.

I had fun with Disney World itself and also differences from Tokyo one. To be honest, no other Disney theme parks can be better than Disney World. It is original and the best. By the way, it was one of my bucket list, so I`m pleased it`s completed. Eventually, I`d like to go the other 2 more areas that I couldn`t make it.

Thank you for reading.

Business ideas!


I'm Keitaro. Today, I'd like to introduce my three business ideas! 

1. Picture Book Sharing Service

Parents often buy many picture books for their babies. However, as babies grow quickly, they stop reading picture books soon. In many cases, these books remain good enough to read. Considering the prices of picture books are not so low, how about giving these books to other new parents? I believe this approach is eco-friendly and good for education. Moreover, with the rising costs of raising children becoming a major concern, this service could save the cost. Of course, a part of the service's fee should be paid to the book's publisher.

2. Community Assistance Application for Apartment Residents

Helping our neighbors is very important for our society and personal happiness. I live in an apartment and I believe there's more we can do to support each other. For example, some residents may need small assistance in their daily lives like carrying heavy items, fixing computers and preparing dinner. Within an apartment or condominium, there could be many people who can and want to help these people.  Also, moving in the same building is easy because it isn't influenced by the weather. I'm thinking about making an application to match these individuals. 

3. Casual Sports Bar in Japan

Sports can be more enjoyable when watched with someone. The sports bar is one of the best places for watching. However, in Japan, the sports bar can little bit hard to enter. Of course, everyone is welcome. The issue is that some people feel so. Additionally, sports bars usually exist only in urban areas. So it isn't accessible for many people. I want to make a sports bar close to my home and I want to enjoy watching sports with people!

What do you think of my ideas? I hope to execute these ideas someday!
