~*~Tokyo Disney Land~*~

Tokyo Disney Land!

While in Tokyo on our free day, a few of my peers and I ventured off  to see Tokyo Disneyland! I have been to Disney World in Orland, Fl when I was 14, and I had an amazing time. I was curious to see if Tokyo Disneyland would meet my expectations and be just as exciting as it was when I went with my family.  When we first arrived, we were so excited to have made it there on our own! After purchasing our tickets, and I was glad they took Visa, we walked through the gates and through World Bazzar! There were plenty of shopping stores. This area was covered by a plexiglass canopy.  The park was very clean and so pretty! After walking out of Bazzar World, you can see Cinderalla’s Castle.  There was also a parade passing by with Minnie and Mickie on the Easter float. In Japan, Easter lasts for a month and it was an Easter Celebration going on.

Then after watching the parade, we went to one of our first rides. It was the Star Tours ride. I rode this ride when I went to the Disney World in Orland, FL as well. This was a simulated ride and it was really fun. The only thing about riding the rides here in Japan is that everything is in Japanese, so I did not know what they were saying! Another thing about Japan, there are tons of people, and the lines for the rides were ridiculously long!! We did not have to wait that long for this ride though! We then went to Toon Town and along the way, stopped at a concession stand that sold various toys and gadgets, hats and Mickey/Minnie mouse ears! I bought a pair later on that evening for a souvenir! Many people had these ears on at the part too!

Since some of us wanted to ride the rides and others wanted to go to the shows, we split up into groups. We went on another roller coaster ride and waited in the line for almost an hour and then went to another ride and waited for over 2 hours. It seemed like we never was going to get to the ride! That is why when going to an amusement park as such, you need a whole week just to do everything, but I’m glad I got the chance to go. Also at the park, we stopped to get some waffles!   They were in the shape of Mickey Mouse and was covered in strawberry and custer with cool whip! It was delicious! After eating and riding a few rides because the lines were just too long, we decided to leave the park. We did not get a chance to see the fireworks or the electronic parade but a couple of my peers said the parade was really nice with all the lights on the floats and that the fireworks were not that great. Overall I still think the Disney World in the US is way better but I had a great time and enjoyed the beautiful park in Tokyo!

    Maaan! I had a really great time here and it was interesting to see the same shows and rides I saw in Disney World – but in Japanese! The greeters were very good at accommodating tourists and so it was easy to figure out where they wanted us to go immediately. Even at the gift shops it was easy to buy what I want because the cashiers spoke English. She asked me if what I was buying was a gift and if I wanted an extra bag. If I was anywhere else, there’s a chance I wouldn’t have known what she was talking about. Everything I ate and drank there was very delicious and worth the price. Overall I don’t regret going here instead of Fuji Highland, although it would’ve been nice to experience that as well!
