Impressions of Tokyo Disney Resort

3 posts in this topic

Firstly let me say Japan is an amazing country, the culture, the people, the sights, all of it. Every day offered up varied and great experiences, I highly recommend a visit if you haven't yet been. Anyway, onto why we're all here ;) Rather than write a detailed TR for each day I spent at the Disney parks in Tokyo I thought I'd instead write an overall summary of my experiences... :) I recently travelled for 3 months around Asia & was lucky enough to spend 3 days at the Tokyo Disney parks, April 11-13. Unfortunately each day was rainy (a couple days the rain was off & on so it wasn't too bad) which was great for the crowds (absolutely zero lines) but it did affect the shows & general atmosphere of the whole place, it was quite lonely at times. I still had an excellent time, but at times it was a little difficult to get into the spirit of things when you're wet/cold. I spent 2 days at Disneyland & 1 day at DisneySea. I was going to parkhop on my last day, but it's a bit of a hike between parks & they make you pay for use of the monorail which is a bit lame, so instead I spent my final day at Disneyland doing things I hadn't done previously on account of the rain. (I'd also totally conquered DisneySea in 1 day so there wasn't really much reason to go back). You have to specify which park you will go to on your first 2 days, you are only allowed to parkhop on your final day which suited me fine but seemed a little odd. Disneyland is a great park, pretty much what you'd expect, nothing all that different to other magic kingdoms, yet still a great park. Their version of Winnie the Pooh is absolutely amazing, so much better than the Anaheim version. My first ride I was blown away (& subsequent re-rides as well). Unfortunately Space Mountain was closed for refurbs when I was there so I was unable to get that credit, but everything else was open. Despite the crowds, Disney still went to great efforts, with parades & fireworks when it wasn't raining - overall an exceptional park! :) DisneySea is a weird yet awesome park, incredibly themed but a little lacking in content (that will change once TOT & Raging Spirits open). Its hard to believe the detail that's gone into theming the park, at times you really feel you're in another world. If the weather was fine I could've spent alot of time just wandering around enjoying the themeing/atmosphere but since it was raining I had to generally rush from ride to ride which was a bit of a shame. For me the best ride was Journey To The Centre of the Earth - a mixture of dark & thrill ride with a cool amount of air-time in the high speed section. I spent a full 12 hours at the park, with many re-rides & exploration when the weather held off. Overall I had a thoroughly enjoyable 3 days at the Tokyo Disney parks, I would definitely plan a future visit once the 2 new rides at DisneySea open. If you have any questions feel free... :) I also have hundreds of photos so I will probably post a few up sometime soon if people want to see any?
