Japan Trip — Day 4

Tokyo Disney Sea

Tokyo has two Disney parks: Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo Disney Sea. The former is the first Disney theme park outside of the United States and is very much modeled after the one in Anaheim. Since, we went to the one in Anaheim last year, we decided to check out Disney Sea. (Unlike the parks in the US, tickets are sold separately in Tokyo.)

We aimed and succeeded in getting there by opening time, 8am. The plan was to stay until closing time, 10pm. Yeah, ‘cos we’re like that. Why go all the way there only to not stay the whole time?

My sister told us one of the MUST RIDES is the Toy Story Mania ride. So, after going through the gate, we made a beeline for the Fast Pass tickets for the Toy Story Mania ride. The line for the Fast Pass itself was really long and it was half an hour before we finally got our Fast Pass tickets! Our allocated time for the ride was 15:10-16:10!

Sorry, not a good pic.

A hamburger and fries from Cape Cod Cook-Off in America Waterfront. It’s what’s for breakfast.

 

 

 

 

Lunch: Rice with three types of curry — chicken, beef and prawn — and naan bread. Casbah Food Court in the Arabian Coast. Nice!

 

 

It was a Tuesday, not holidays yet, so the park was not very crowded. Yet, some things did involve a long wait.

A couple of rides weren’t operating — Raging Spirits and Scuttle’s Scooters — and there were some we gave a miss because we had done it in Anaheim. We also did not ride ones which were geared more for young children.

Susannah got a Fast Pass ticket for this ride at around 11am which was valid for 7-8pm! She went at around 6pm, stood in line like a peasant for 80 minutes, rode it, and then immediately went through the Fast Pass lane and rode it again. I declined to ride this because roller coasters and I don’t get along.

We wanted to try some Japanese food for dinner, but by the time we got to the one we wanted, they were already closed for the night!

So, we lined up for an hour for the gondolas, our last ride for the day.

By the time we got back to our home station, it was late and many places were closing. When all else fails, there’s always McDonalds, so that’s what we did. Pathetic, I know.

(Note: McDonalds in Japan does not sell Quarter Pounders. It was discontinued in April 2017. The closest thing is the Double Cheeseburger.)

10.45pm order at a place that was going to close its doors at 11pm. Asked for a Eat In and promised we would eat quickly. At 11pm, we gathered up our still uneaten french fries and bolted out of there.
