My next day in Tokyo I got up at 6am, quietly got ready and snuck out the hostel, Disneyland is the only thing that would get me up at this time!
There were 4 must do items on my list, go on a big ride, see a parade, meet a character and go to the gift shops! And we did all 4!
We went on Alice’s Teacups (the most underrated ride ever!), the carousel, Pirates of the Caribbean, Winnie the Pooh, the go karts and the Haunted Mansion.
All the fast passes sold out super quick, we were only able to fast pass the Haunted Mansion but it was ok as it was our priority ride! The mansion gets Nightmare Before Christmas themed for Halloween so it’s always good, I especially love the uniform the staff wear for that ride.
We were able to see the Halloween Parade as we were trapped between the Haunted Mansion and tea cups. The staff initiated a one way system and of course it was the wrong direction for us, they kept telling us to move and we were trying to say we didn’t want to as it was the wrong way. All very frustrating.
We tried to meet some characters but every time we did it was just as the character was finishing their meet and greet! I did get to hi five Mickey though.
And we had a group photo with Mary Poppins, the most lolita character!
I was disappointed to find that Disneyland is still a Duffy free zone, in the gift shops at least, lots of visitors had Duffy.
I wore APs Chocolate Rosette with my new gold Emily Temple Cute cardigan, it’s so pretty and glittery! Tokyo Disneyland is pretty good with lolitas, you can’t wear a full character costume but they are used to seeing lolitas and understand its a fashion not costume. I have been to the Paris Disneyland in lolita before, but always toned down (non print JSK with a cardigan) and put my headbow on after getting through the gates.
The Disney magic was in full force as the Tokyo one is celebrating its 30th year. The castle looked gorgeous decorated with Mickey balloons!
And all the Halloween decorations!
I got my bus home from outside the park so enjoyed the end of day fireworks whilst they played magical Disney music!
Thanks to everyone for making my weekend special, especially Sarah for organizing the Disney meet up!
