Fantasyland Friday

At Tokyo Disneyland, this sign designates where Fantasyland begins and Tomorrowland ends.

The shot above was taken just after exiting the Haunted Mansion. That's the Carrousel on the left and Dumbo sits just behind the hedge on the right.

YES, in Tokyo, the Haunted Mansion is located in Fantasyland. In Japanese culture, ghost stories are considered to be a part of fables and fairy tales, so it fits in perfectly here. As an interesting side note, each of the four Haunted Mansions around the world are all in a different "land." In Anaheim, the attraction is in New Orleans Square, in Walt Disney World, Liberty Square and at Disneyland Paris, it's in Frontierland. Tokyo's sits more or less where Anaheim's old Fantasyland Skyway station sits today.
