I mean, there wasn't lots of extra space, but compared to the pictures I had seen of Tokyo rooms, this was bigger! The room and the resort was nice. Nothing spectacular, but I am pretty snobby when it comes to cleanliness of where I'll stay and I had no issues with this whatsoever. And it was nice that it was right across from the monorail

I'd love to do the coast to coast but I couldn't justify 2 trips to the US in one year.

Still enjoying your updates, but Tokyo is looking pretty similar to the other parks so far - I'll admit it's TDS I'm really hanging out for

And yes, please tell us about the toilet adventure!
They should still have it! I would have loved to do the coast 2 coast 2 but I've already had too many trips this year!

Day 7- Part 3

So as promised, here's a post all about the show One Man's Dream II (and again, I apologize about the quality of pictures. I stink at getting clear shots from far away with moving subjects!)



It started with Mickey and Minnie in a black and white costume. I'd never seen that before!





Then they turned to color



And there was Snow White and the Snow Prince



the monkey from Tarzan (I forget her name!)



King Louie


A Bug's Life











Peter Pan, Wendy, and Captain Hook







The Evil Queen







Frollo and Maleficent



Aurora and Prince Phillip





Cinderella and Prince Charming





Up next...the ending of the show...

Minnie Mum-you can also use your credit card to buy Park tickets beforehand at the Disney Welcome Centre within Ikspiari-its on the ground floor eg when we found out we needed cash to buy them at the hotel (what is it with this?) we went there that first arrival evening and bought them for the next couple of days-I forget how late its open til-at least 7pm as it must have been about that time when we got there. I read you can also buy them at some Disney stores around Tokyo too if you are in the city first.

Fantastic trip report so far!!!

My DH and I also got married at WDW and we have our Disney California, Tokyo and Hong Kong booked for Dec!

Your trip report has us SUPER excited!!

Can't wait to read more!!

Question though, do you speak either Japanese or Chinese? Was there any issues with language at the parks?

Day 7- Part 4

Then they played "Hooray for Hollywood" in Japanese. This is the theme song for where I work at Disney, the Great Movie Ride. So I had to tape it!

























Then we went to eat at the Queen of Hearts Banquet Hall for lunch. I had read about this in Carrie's blog and we were so excited to go there. It was so cute!























I had a Caesar Salad.



Up next...a bunch of pictures from the Jubilation Parade!

Thanks! And we contemplated pushing the trip back until Shanghai was open, but I'm not sure if I would be able to go if we waited longer

Day 7-Part 6

We went to Toon Town after watching the parade. Up first was Roger Rabbit's Car Toon Spin.



Then I saw Clarice as she was going in (I've never seen her in our parks) so I had to snap a picture.



And then we rode Gadget's Go Coaster



We didn't really go into Chip & Dale's Treehouse but they're Cori's fav and my hubby's fav so I had to take a picture of the sign.





Then we rode Pinocchio's Daring Journey



and It's a Small World









We tried to watch the Tanabata Greeting Parade for the Star Festival but it got cancelled due to the weather. Then we went to Cinderella's Fairy Tale Hall and went up in the castle.









It had really neat things to see like shadow box type things




















Photo ops like sitting in the throne and the glass slipper





And there were these magic photos where pixie dust shows up in the picture because of the flash. Unfortunately, my camera died right before that. I think one of the other girls took pictures but I can't find it. Luckily, Meredith had her good camera and one like mine. She was using her good camera so she gave me her one like mine and I put my sim card in to use for the rest of the night. But we didn't figure out to use this until after we got out of the castle.

Up next...night at the park

WOW! Lots to catch up on.


So much seems the same and so much seems different. I'm glad that TDL has its own personality and it does come through in your pictures. They really make me want to go see it soon....someday.


Thanks for sharing.

We commented on that a lot. There were so many big picture things that were similar but it was the smaller things that were different.
