Tokyo DisneySea is divided into seven themed "ports" or "lands". The first "port" guests encounter after entering the park is Mediterranean Harbor. In the photo above, the Mira Costa Hotel can be seen in the distance. The archway in the middle of the hotel, is the same archway we saw in yesterday's post. It is the entrance into both the park and Mediterranean Harbor. The Spanish galleon in the foreground is a part of Fortress Explorations and the smaller boat out in the water is one of DisneySea's Transit Steamers. We will be visiting both of these attractions in future posts.
Another attraction in this area is the Venetian Gondolas. They are listed in the DisneySea guidebook along with the following description: "Enjoy a relaxing ride along the waterways of Mediterranean Harbor on an authentic gondola operated by gondoliers." The godolier's spiel is in Japanese, but also includes some basic Italian ("Arrivederci", "Ciao", etc.)
Pictured below, are some "ancient ruins." Hercules and Meg can often be seen posing for photos and signing autographs in this area.
