At the beginning of October I visited TDS with the lovely Kelsey. It was a really hard to choose whether to go to Tokyo Disneyland or Disneysea…TDL seems more halloweeny and they have the Haunted Mansion which becomes Nightmare Before Christmas themed and a halloween parade. On the other hand TDS has the Tower of Terror, not halloween themed but fun and spooky, a halloween villains watershow, Duffy and beer. TDS won by a slither.
I love Disneyland and Disneysea in Japan, although this was my first time to go in summer. The new Summer Festival event and Journeys with Duffy events started at the beginning of July.
Due to my surge in love for Duffy I’ve been buying some new clothes for him.
I love Disney resorts, I love Christmas, the two together?! Waaa!
I had a magical time at DisneySea Christmas Wishes this week, and bought so many goods.
While I’m still sorting through my pictures I hope you enjoy looking at my many purchases.
I haven’t been able to get to Tokyo Disneyland for their Christmas season, but I have been in the past and it was fantastic!
Luckily my friend has been twice this month and was kind enough to pick up a few things for me!
The following day in Tokyo the weather was pretty miserable :( I got up fairly early, had the hostels Japanese breakfast and walked to Ueno Park.
After I’d walked the length and back and sat and had a pastry I decided to head to the Skytree Mall.
I walked from the Skytree to the Sumida River to look at some more cherry blossom near the Asahi building. Then on to Asakusa for lunch.
It was nearly 3pm so I went back to the hostel to collect my bag and make my next plans. I said goodbye to the staff.
The rain had let up a little so decided to stick to my plan of going to DisneySea with their after 6pm ticket!
I waited and read my book for a while, then just before 6 joined a que with the rest of the waiting people. The ticket guy introduced himself and asked us if we were ready, and were we going to have a good time to which we all chanted hai hai hai! At 6 on the dot we were allowed in.
My favorite ride is the Tower of Terror but it had a 160min wait! Woah. The park closes at 10pm so wouldn’t have time for anything else. Instead I went to some gift shops to buy Duffy merchandise.
I walked around a bit taking it all in.
Then joined a que to meet the man himself – Duffy!
At 8pm the light show started on the water so I headed back to the waterfront to watch.
My bus was leaving from the Disney car park at 10.10pm and couldn’t miss it, so while the fireworks were starting I headed out the park to go home.
My shopping haul –
