The Caravan Courtyard

Tokyo Disney Sea is packed with gathering spaces, similar to the urban layout of an organically developed city.  The spaces compress and stretch, creating moments of spatial drama and then relief, and the plazas that open up very successfully draw guest to rest, people watch, or just enjoy the incredibly intricate ambiance. 

One of my favorite spaces is in the Arabian Coast, next to the Caravan Carousel, where a lovely Middle Eastern aesthetic fountain encourages guests to congregate like an oasis in the middle of a desert.  The large scale courtyard behaves much like an authentic iteration might, injecting vitality into the space.  Plus, look at how gorgeous everything is!  Places like this are examples of why I could probably spend months at Tokyo Disney Sea and still never grow tired of all the detail.

The central courtyard of the Arabian Coast is a lovely gathering space.
