Tokyo Disneyland (Before Sunset)

Tokyo Disneyland Before Sunset
[Throwback March] Another throwback post on my Disneyland adventure. As you know, the GST in Japan raised up to 8% on April 1 2014 and riding on the “we have to buy and spend before the GST increase” wave, I joined my classmates from Waseda to Disneyland in March. Also, there was a student card promotion which we could buy the entrance tickets at 25% off and so I thought that I better go before I returned my student card. (Btw, Tokyo Disneyland have a ongoing promotion till July 7th for Kanto residents for weekdays, where you can purchase the tickets at 10% off)

Perfect blue sky for photos but it was freezing cold that day with temperatures hovering around 6 – 12 degrees.

The park opened at 830am that day but we were kinda like in the middle of the line when we arrived at 730am. These are the people who probably had arrived before 7am to station themselves right at the gate. There was a huge crowd that day as Japan school holiday had already started.

By 815am, the crowd swelled behind me.

When the entrance opened at 830am. EVERYONE ran/rushed in to wait in line or collect the fast pass for their favorite ride.

Of course, we RAN too to collect our fast pass for the Monster Inc ride. It was only 845am but we got the 1130am time slot. Anyway, after your first fastpass collected, you have to wait till the time lapse for that ride till you can collect fast pass for another ride.

Next we headed toward the relatively new Star Wars ride. Wait time was 30 minutes.

Making our way in slowly.

Thermal image captured! I love the 3D star wars ride but most people came out a little giddy cos the graphics combined with the motions was quite fast.

The line after we came out of the ride. The line wait had increased to 80 minutes…WOW =_=!

We gave up on looking at the Japanese map as we were trying to make out the Katakana too slowly and asked the Disney cast for an ENGLISH map.

Cute high school gals dressed as Snitch. Going out with your school friends to Disney seemed like a big event here

For those who don’t do rides, you can opt for a boat ride.

Tokyo Disneyland Before Sunset
Or if you are energetic enough, row your own boat. But at least 45 minutes just to row this for 6 minutes 😛

Finally headed to the show…..

A good thing about nice weather in Disneyland is that the photos would come out nicer and it was so much more comfortable to sit along the road for the parade without any rain.
