American Waterfront is a "port-of-call" (themed land) at Tokyo DisneySea in the Tokyo Disney Resort, the northeastern seaboard of the United States in the early 20th century. It features two themed areas, an "Old Cape Cod" section, and a "New York Harbor" section with an elaborate backstory. The land itself is brought to life by an abandoned concept for a new land at Disneyland in 1976 called Big City U.S.A.


The American Waterfront is themed to resemble a New York enlivened by new immigrants, and the New England fishing village of Cape Cod.

New York is depicted as a bustling city at the end of the Industrial Age, complete with an elevated railway, a classic American Theater and a harbor displaying a large range of boats, including the massive S.S. Columbia. This city's backstory revolves around the wealthy Harrison Hightower III, whose power grew stronger amid New York, as one can guess seeing his Hightower Hotel, symbol of his might, until he mysteriously disappeared after retrieving a cursed African idol. In the time since, his business rival Cornelius Endicott has built a shipping and newspaper empire, with the S.S. Columbia serving as the flagship of his luxury ocean liner fleet. As such, New York Harbor features the main attractions:

  • Tower of Terror, inside the Hightower Hotel, where guests investigate Hightower's disappearance and face the curse of the idol known as Shiriki Utundu.
  • Turtle Talk, inside the S.S. Columbia, where guests meet Crush, from the Disney/Pixar movie Finding Nemo, as they look through an underwater window.
  • Toy Story Mania!, the popular ride from Disney California Adventure and Disney's Hollywood Studios, based on the Toy Story movies, which opened on July 9, 2012, probably shaped in a Coney Island-inspired way. The attraction is located in a sub-area of American Waterfront, called Toyville Trolley Park.

Cape Cod offers a slower pace and the opportunity to stroll leisurely along its quaint streets. Cape Cod is the home of Duffy the Disney Bear and the rest of his friends.
