日本 2015: Tokyo DisneySea

2015_0330_11041700_1

This post mainly contains adventures in DisneySea, ramen eating and city living.

TIPS

Tokyo is home to two Disney parks: Tokyo Disneyland and DisneySea Resort. Because we only had one free day for a theme park in Tokyo City, we listened to everyone’s advice and chose to go to DisneySea Resort. 

Buy the tickets online. As a foreigner, the tickets already come with the ability to acquire fast pass tickets to any ride. In Japan, fast pass tickets are more like timed ticket entry tickets; that is, you can go to the fast pass lane (basically skip the otherwise two to three hour wait) only within the allotted time given by your timed ticket (which you have to line up for earlier on). But the catch is you can only line up for a fast pass ticket every two hours (I think it’s to prevent hoarding) and sometimes the fast pass ticketing machines close early. So be sure to strategize which rides you want to get some fast passes to! 

Day 3

THEME PARKS DisneySea Resort 

Of the many parks inside DisneySea Resort (i.e. Mediterranean Harbor, Mysterious Island, Mermaid Lagoon, Arabian Coast, Port Discovery, American Waterfront, Lost River Delta), I can give no definite favorite. But I can say that the designs are perfect (if vaguely lacking in Mickey Mouse details…?). Basically it was hella fun.

FOOD Ichiran Shibuya

Dining in Ichiran Shibuya is a super recommended experience, from the vending machines to the individual booths. Good ramen, too!
