Transport: Take to Maihama station. Tokyo Disneyland is just minutes away from the station via walking..
These 2 days were very magical for us..as we spent our time at the lovely Disneyland and Disneysea..True enough, Tokyo Disneyland is much bigger and more fun than HK Disneyland..and of course, the crowd is so much bigger that you may need to queue from 30mins to 3h for a ride!! Horrendous crowds…
Mickey the Star!As we stepped into Disneyland on 29th Dec..we saw a long long queue…guess what?..it’s the queue to take pics with Mickey Mouse!...we took about 45mins before it’s our turn..and they were so strict..only 1 pic can be taken..but we feel that some Japanese are allowed to take more than 1 pic with Mickey…I find this not so statisfactory…in the meantime, other cartoon characters also came out…although everyone know they are fictional, but the crowd rushes to these cartoon characters to get pics, autographs…well..it’s all about the thrill when you visit Disneyland, isnt’t it? Hahaha…
Minnie the Queen!
The Famous Magical Castle
And we saw many little children all gowned up to be part of Disney World
There were so many shows that day…and they are all very entertaining..including the parade show, the electric lights display show at night and the fireworks at 830pm..to keep people staying in the theme park, and continue to spend!!
One of the many enjoyable shows at Disneyland :)
The fascinating lights display
Pooh and Friends!
For every portion of the theme park, they have a themed restaurant, a big gift shop selling items related to the theme…anything and everything you can think of, Disney sells it!
Winnie the Pooh shop~~
Can you resist these pizzas?!
Since it’s nearing the New Year, many cookies in the shape of rabbits, cookies boxes with very cute rabbits alongside with Mickey and Minnie, figurines are some of the merchandise…we were resisting these temptations to avoid impulsive buys!!
Beautiful bowl that I resist its temptation!
Cookies or little bites with Disney merchandise~
Take a look at those pics…it’s totally KAWAII!!!
And I’m very happy to take pics with Chip and Dale, personalized pics of Goofy, Pluto etc…my idols since when I was a little kid..i love the mickey mouse waffles, the mickey mouse pizza..whee…I love the food..the merchandise..the characters..I hope I can live there forever!
Disneyland at night
Fireworks at 830pm!
Beautiful castle at night..mesmerized!
The next day, we spent our time exploring Disneysea…since there is only one Disneysea in the world, we reckon it will be great to explore it since we were already there! And I must say it was a refreshing experience!....the feeling was a little like being in little Venice..the whole theme park was basically built on top of the sea..and Disney characters wore sailors costumes..that made the whole atmosphere very different from Disneyland…
My lunch set at Disneysea~
We took this kawaii bus to Disneysea!
Little Venice looking themepark

MickEy Handsome Handsome!
I saw some ladies with bags like this!
Lilo in the House!
They also have many fantastic shows and interesting shops…
Mega Water show..spectacular!
Look at the crowd!
Yummy popcorn..they have many different flavors of popcorn like milk, curry, chocolate..and these stalls were always long queue!
Donut shaped cushions!
At the end of 2 days, the “damage” spent at these 2 theme parks were absorbed into my backpack as I carried these favourites back to Singapore..very happily..hee
Triton's Kingdom..Under the Sea!
Spin spin tea-cups
Although at night, it was very cold with strong winds..i think it was nearing 2-5deg…I’m glad we have survived..and not falling ill..the previous days of me having a flu disappeared miraculously once after a visit to Disneyland hahaha…
Shivering together haha!
Disneysea at Night
From the architecture, to the merchandise, to the entertainment provided to each guest in the theme park, was intricately designed…pple were seen at the cashiers making payment, everyone carrying at least a bag of Disney merchandise, pple feasting at all the restaurants…you must be guessing how much Disneyland earns per day…unimaginable I think haha…well..it’s the fun, the photos, the rides, the memories that each guest gets to bring home..which is considered priceless, in my opinion!
Hand in Hand to Disneyland and Disneysea!
