Happy 9th Birthday Tokyo DisneySea

nempaNine years ago today, in what started as a dark cloudy day, Tokyo DisneySea opened its doors as Tokyo's second gate. With threat of a typhoon and a weekday opening, crowds were remarkably light. There was a ceremony that day officially opening the park with speeches by Toshio Kagami (then-president of Oriental Land Company), Michael Eisner (then-CEO of the Walt Disney Company), and the late Roy Disney Jr. Right before Roy spoke, the clouds opened up and the sun shone brightly in the new park. Was it a miracle? Or a little Disney magic!?!?! Happy birthday little sister park DisneySea!

Below we have video coverage of the opening ceremony. Please excuse the bad angle and shaky shots. Enjoy!
