    Looks like I am the first here :wave2:

    For those that have been it would be great if you could post up your reports and photographs of these parks :)

    Hopefully those with questions regarding trip planning can get help from others :)

    Here is a photo site to whet the appetite :)

    Wow! What great photos. I've been to Tokyo Disneyland twice but just realised that the last time was 16 years....I feel so old!

    Now I wanna go again!

    My husband is getting stationed in Korea next year, and assuming we get Command Sponsorship, I made him promise that he'd take me to Tokyo Disneyland. I'm especially excited about DisneySea, because it's unique.

    I'm also considering going to the one in Hong Kong, but Tokyo is the priority.

    For certain reasons, most of my pics are from DisneySea and not from TDL (I kinda left the memory card in my laptop :headache: )

    But honestly, TDS is where it's at for unique photos...I spent the day and took 400 pictures, it's just that incredible.

    Here are some highlights:

    So that is a teaser and that is just a very VERY small part of how amazing that park is

    Thanks for the great photos. :worship:

    It looks like some of those photos are from the Miracosta hotel. Can you get into the hotel (from the DisneySea side) to have a look around if you're not staying there? Or do they stop the day guests going in from that side? It looks really impressive and I'd love to take a peek when I finally make it out to Tokyo.

    Well I was lucky enough to meet up that night with some DisneySea veterans and they got me into Miracosta to look around...we got through a lot of areas that I think are guest only, but I believe you can do a tour of the main areas.....................and it is incredible.....the best Disney resort on earth...by far.

    I will definitely stay there the next time I go to Tokyo...somehow....

    They also have many options for a Disney wedding there

    I live about 55 minutes away from TDR so I've been there many times (maybe something like 13?) Here are my tips for those overseas that are considering their journey:

    1. July/August is very very humid and miserable in Japan as well as obvious school age child peak times. It's best to be avoided, especially for TDL. I've had good luck with February and September.

    2. Always check for when Japanese national holidays fall. On national holidays and associated "3 day weekends" the parks will sell out. Those who purchased tickets in advance will be allowed into the park but no tickets will be sold at the gates. Those people wishing to enter on a sold out day are queued in the parking lot until 5 pm when ticket sales will renew. Even if you do have those advance tickets you will be packed in like sardines, believe me. I've been there. (and this is coming from someone that's done 3 spring breaks at WDW)

    3. Stitch, Marie, Mickey, and Pooh are the top characters in Japan and have the most merchandise.

    4. The newest attraction at TDL is "Monsters Inc" and at TDS is turtle talk. Nice for the kiddies but really nothing unique to either park and the wait times are painful.

    5. BUT the Japanese are not all that fond of roller coaster type attractions (jet coaster is the term used in Japan) so on moderate to low attendance evenings 6pm onward you can often walk on space/splash mountains, grand thunder, and raging spirits.

    6. Popcorn is "serious business" and a ritual at TDR. You better believe I have been hoarding the same popcorn bucket since 2005 for refills as it has the larger capacity. The Japanese map will have a popcorn flavor guidemap but the English map does not. The flavors sometimes vary and those I can remember now are: honey, chocolate, salt, caramel, curry, soysauce and salt, cappuccino, strawberry. When in Rome...

    7. Another Japanese ritual is buying souvenir cookies, rice crackers, and so on for your coworkers. Which usually come in tins and boxes that no one wants to lug around all day. The shops are completely swamped at the end of the day. SHOP. EARLY.


    8. DisneySea has always been marketed as "for dates" which is why it's heavy on the elegant and adult themes and sparse on the kiddyfare excepting the little mermaid area at this time. The 10 and under set might get antsy in the pantsy. (Or perhaps this is just my 1986 Epcot trip bias coming into play).

    9. This may be an odd one. But when purchasing clothing items in Japan at the parks note that Japanese sizing runs smaller than western sizing. Also the parks generally only carries one size: M. The female "M" is generally a US size 6~8. The male "M" is S in US sizing.

    I hope these were somewhat helpful. Any questions, feel free to ask.

    bucktick, very good info. I didn't know they refill popcorn buckets! They're delicious and addicting popcorn::. Do they sell them at TDS now? They were only sold at TDL few years ago.

    People can order food by pointing to items on picture menus. Everyone is polite, everything is sparkling clean.
