It is my hope that other DISboard members, who have been to Tokyo will join in and post some Photo's.

I'm glad you enjoy the photo's Becky521 and PrincessPaczki.

Thank you, NikkiLovesWDW. Yes, A trip to Tokyo can be a bit costly for accomodation, but you'll find the food is cheap and the transportation in the city is very easy. Most young Japanese do speak some English and people are very helpful. The airfare isn't that expensive. The Tokyo Disneyland park does get very crowded, unless your lucky, and your right, DisneySea is amazing.

There ought to be a WARNING on "Picture of the day" threads, because they can be very expensive to view. I've been viewing the WDW and Disneyland threads and My excitement over the pictures has triggered a very long holiday to both parks. Costing $$,$$$.$$

I'm leaving in less than 24 hours to spend four weeks in WDW and on the way back will spend three weeks in Disneyland. I have been to both parks but spending just a week would seem too rushed to see it all.

So, I'll post a few more Pictures today, between packing, and then it will be two months before I return and will post again on this and the other threads.

The details of Disney Seas (is that the name?) looks amazing!

Are the face characters in Tokyo Disney Japanese? If not, do they speak fluent Japanese? Just curious.

Those pictures are AMAZING! Ive always wanted to go to Tokyo Disney and Japan in general.
To answer the question about the language, I'm pretty sure you have to be fluent in the language of the country. Like French in Paris Disney, Chinese in Hong Kong, Japanese in Tokyo...And i think the face characters would have to be true to whatever race the original character is.
Thank you for all those wonderful pictures!!

WHAT AMAZING PICTURES!! I LOVE THEM AND WANT TO GO SO BADLY!!

I think that the language barrier is truly the largest hurdle, after $$, for most. Can you tell me about how that affected your trip? Do CMs speak English? Are there translations of signs or is it all in Japanese? Are shows all in Japanese as well? Soundtracks? I'm just so curious about everything!! Thanks for the pictures!

I'm back from my long Holiday to WDW and Disneyland. Here is an old photo from DisneySea


To answer some of the questions...
They use westerners in the face characters.
Some CM's speak good English, most speak some basic English.
The shows are a usually a mix of Japanese and English, although some are completely Japanese, and I remember the Broadway Music Theatre show was completely in English...Just like a real Broadway show. The lead singers were westerners and the back up dancers are Japanese. A fantastic show BTW.
There is a Partners Statue in Tokyo Disneyland.
I live in Brisbane, Australia.

Here is a Picture of Creulla De Vil in Tokyo DisneySea

I couldn't resist.

Wow, Robert... these pictures are really very cool to look at. The DisneySea park is like no other place in the WORLD! It's like what Disney could do but for some reason figures we in the states aren't sophisticated enough to want.

Hope to see at least a PINCH of this kind of creativity and detail with the new DCA stuff.. Unfortunately, "Cars Land" doesn't feel like it will lend itself to a Hotel Highwater-esque feel! oh..boy, more route 66 signs.

Anyway, great pics.. I wish I could take 4 weeks off and spend them anywhere ... and to spend them at DISNEY... so dang cool! You are, indeed, my IDOL!

ROFL.. I just read this post to my DH and told hem about your trip and that you live in Australia and he said, "Good."

I like me some Disney men

Melissa
P.S. Is that your DW??? Where are YOU???
