Fake Disneyland in Japan: The Nara Dreamland

Been looking over a bunch of abandoned Disney projects and I’m going to start every week with posting one of their rides that is discontinued or a project they simply abandoned. However I will start with something on the same topic that is a fake Disneyland park!

It was built in 1961 and only closed in 2006! It’s really creepy and eerie, especially now that it’s abandoned take a look. They closed due to low visitor numbers after the official Disneyland Tokyo opened up. I’d probably go if I was in Japan, could be a fun adventure or a scary one. Also check out the youtube vid. Also Happy Birthday to Walt Disney World!

The entrance is almost identical to Disneyland. Both parks has the Sleeping Beauty Castle, a Main Street, a monorail and an Autopia-type ride, but there are some other similarities, too.
