The Tokyo Disney Resort is a theme park and vacation resort located in Urayasu, Chiba, Japan, just east of Tokyo. It is owned and operated by The Oriental Land Company with a license from The Walt Disney Company. The resort opened on April 15, 1983 as a single theme park (Tokyo Disneyland), but developed into a resort with two theme parks, two (Disney) hotels, and one shopping complex. Tokyo Disneyland was the first Disney theme park opened outside the United States.

Tokyo Disney Resort has three main entertainment sections: Tokyo Disneyland; Tokyo DisneySea; and Ikspiari, which is a variation of the Downtown Disney shopping, dining, and entertainment area found at the Disney resorts in California and Florida.

The Zoologischer Garten Berlin (Berlin zoological garden) is one of the biggest zoos in Germany and the one with the largest number of species of the world. It is located in Berlin Tiergarten near the S-Bahn and railway station of the same name in the city center.

Along with its aquarium the zoological garden is one of the sights of Berlin. It opened on August 1, 1844 and was the first zoo in Germany. The first animals were donated by Frederick William IV, King of Prussia, from the menagerie and pheasantry of the Tiergarten. During World War II the zoo area was completely destroyed and only 91 animals survived, an amazing feat though considering the overall destruction of the city.

Today the zoo houses approximately 14,000 animals from 1500 species on a 35 hectare site in historical animal houses. Highlights of a zoo visit are the giant pandas which can only be seen at a few zoos in the world. All of the animals are housed in enclosures that are specially designed to recreate their natural biotopes. From the breeding point of view the zoo maintains the studbooks for white and black rhinoceroses and gaurs.
