    Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea are not owned by The Walt Disney Company. They are owned by The Oriental Land Company - a Japanese leisure and tourism corporation. The Oriental Land Company pays a very large amount of money each month to Disney in character and likeness licenses, and Disney in turn has leased their Imagineers to the company to build the parks.
