JAPAN-ENTERTAINMENT-DISNEY

Today Yumi Sakai, a 39-year-old nurse from Nagoya who was visiting with her husband and two daughters, was greeted by Mickey Mouse and other Disney characters at the Tokyo DisneySea gate. Then to her surprise, she was told that she became an important milestone guest.

“I can’t believe it,” she said. “I want to come here with my kids again and make wonderful memories.”

Yumi received a special commemorative certificate, a plush Duffy and Mickey Mouse and a special pass to the parks for three years.

The resort complex, which opened as Tokyo Disneyland in April 1983 with Tokyo DisneySea added in 2001, marked 100 million visitors in May 1991 and 500 million in August 2010. The park logged a record-high 31.3 million visitors in fiscal 2013, which ended in March, due to events commemorating its 30th anniversary and a pickup in the Japanese economy.
