Happy Halloween!

I recently went back to Tokyo Skytree and Tokyo Disney Sea and they were both filled with Halloween spirit. It was my first time going up to the observation deck and it really was an impressive view – I highly recommend it. Disney Sea was just amazing as always but I gotta say we might have had the most successful and fun trip this time around ;)

Hope everyone has a fun and safe Halloween.

This was my 2nd time visiting Tokyo Disney Sea. I feel like I can say I’ve finally mastered this park as I got to go on all the rides I didn’t get to go on last time and I also discovered my favorite ride!

It is currently Tokyo Disneyland’s 30th Anniversary so the park is filled with lots of 30th anniversary items and special decorations have also made their way over to Disney Sea. I previously posted a 3-part post on Disney Sea, but here is an update post based on my latest experience!

I just can’t say enough about how beautiful this park is and how well it’s maintained. I mean it’s the most expensive theme park ever made and you can see why. I think it’s so cute/creative how some people in Japan get so dressed up just to visit the park. Some couples, students, or families really know how to stand out!

Tokyo Disney Sea : Part 3 – Rides

Hope you’ve been enjoying my posts about Tokyo Disney Sea :) Today is my final post in the Disney Sea series.

The rides at Disney Sea are fun and much scarier than Tokyo Disneyland. The top 2 most popular rides are tower of terror and Center of the Earth. We couldn’t go on every ride since the park was crowded and there were some long lines, but thought I’d share some secret tips with you to help you navigate as smoothly as possible.

A few of my tips for when you visit Tokyo Disney Sea
- As soon as you enter the park, get your fast pass to Tower of Terror (if you want to go on that ride). We couldn’t even get the fastpass when we got to the park because they were already sold out…

- Go on Raising Spirits as a “single rider”. There are a few rides at Disney Sea where you can use the special “single rider” line (It’s similar to a fast pass). They let you skip the normal long line and go straight to the front of the line so they can fill up seats that are empty due to uneven group sizes. I suggest riding rides like Raising Spirits as a single rider because they don’t take your photo on this ride so you don’t really need to sit next to your friends, plus it’s a roller coaster and it ends quickly anyways. The only problem is that sometimes they don’t allow single riders because the single rider line is too long.

- When your next fast pass time becomes available, get your fast pass for “Center of the Earth”.

- “Aladdin Magic Theater”, “Mermaid Dragoon Theater”, and “Storm rider” are actually not bad to watch. If you have some free time, check them out.

- You can access a website (compatible with most smartphones) that has realtime wait-times for all of the attractions at Tokyo Disney Sea. I highly recommend looking at this when you are deciding which ride to go on next. You can find the link to it here (note: You have to answer a few questions first. Also, the link may change in the future).

Hope these tips are helpful for when you visit Disney Sea :)

Tokyo Disney Sea : Part 2 – Food & Shops

There are about 35 restaurants inside of Tokyo Disney Sea – everything from street food to gourmet restaurants. We ate at Vulcania restaurant, which is located inside of the Mysterious Island. Vulcania specializes in Chinese Cuisine and the food was surprisingly good. It provides the perfect place for a break from the fun to rest and refuel with a good meal.

Everyone (both men and women) seemed to be wearing an amazing variety of Mickey Mouse hats in different shapes and colors. Not sure if it’s because it was freezing outside and the hats keep your head warm or if Japanese people just love buying Disney stuff, but either way it really makes you want to buy one too :)

The MOST POPULAR item at Tokyo Disney Sea (and Tokyo Disneyland) are the Duffy Dolls. I noticed that MANY people were carrying Duffy & ShellieMay Dolls. It’s kind of strange but it’s especially popular amongst Japanese girls to hold the stuffed animals throughout their visit to the park and that’s considered “cool”. The dolls became popular because Minnie Mouse gave the Duffy doll to Micky Mouse as a gift on his birthday in 2005 and it was Mickey’s favorite doll. In 2010, they decided to create Duffy’s friend, ShellieMay, and sold it at Disneyland as well. It’s seriously a sensation here in Tokyo. How did I not know about this…

Tokyo Disney Sea : Part 1 – The Park

I’ve never visited Tokyo Disney Sea until now… and I loved it! I was impressed with how beautifully crafted the park is. Tokyo Disney Sea was opened in 2001 and is located right next to Tokyo Disneyland. It has a nautical exploration theme and the park is divided into seven parts. Tokyo Disney Sea is supposidely the most expensive theme park ever built, estimated to have cost over U.S. $4 billion. I can certainly see why it cost so much, the attention to detail is so meticulously executed it’s amazing.

Even though we spotted many families with kids, this park is geared more towards adults since the rides are scarier, they have many more options for food than Disneyland, and most importantly, it is a very magical & romantic place for couples.

I decided to do a three-part post on Tokyo Disney Sea because there’s just too much to share. Stay tuned for more tomorrow when I’ll be sharing all the food and shops that are exclusive to Disney Sea!
