Who's ready for a nice evening river cruise?
011.jpg
Mickey gets around. Here he is hanging out by the river in Westernland, probably wondering where Minnie is with his mint julep.
012.jpg
When you take a cruise on the Mark Twain, . . .
013.jpg
. . . be sure to have your passport stamped. Otherwise, Goofy will probably interrogate you somewhere, and nobody wants that.
014.jpg
It’s mighty restful on the river at night.
017.jpg
But work goes on at the Indian village.
018.jpg
I recommend riding the Mark Twain after dark. It’s tougher for some drunken fur trapper to draw a bead on you at night.
019.jpg
More waffles? Why not?
020.jpg
I went with the more “traditional” maple walnut this time.
020a.jpg
“Good choice of waffle, mate. Ask ‘em for a ‘Captain Jack’ next time, eh? They soak it rum and set it afire. Aye, you'll feel good after eating one of those.”
021.jpg
Well, here’s something I’ve never done at Tokyo Disneyland before.
022.jpg
Hmm--Stitch's Great Escape in Florida immediately improved because they closed it. Still, it has to be better than Florida’s Enchanted Tiki Room: Under New Management. EDIT: I realized later that I'd used the wrong name for the Florida Stitch attraction. Stitch Encounter is like Turtle Talk and is fairly entertaining (especially if you're chosen as Stitch's old cellmate at "Space Prison").
023.jpg
That will be difficult, as I don’t have your number.
024.jpg
Were these figures ever “animated,” like they are at California Disneyland? I remember that Pele had fire shooting out of her head there.
025.jpg
Let’s see . . . singing birds, check.
026.jpg
Singing flowers, check.
027.jpg
This is better than the Stitch attraction in Florida for two reasons: 1) Stitch wears a cool Hawaiian shirt and sings in Japanese, and 2) he doesn’t burp a chili dog in your face.
028.jpg
Hoo boy--they’re gonna have a hell of a time cleaning this off.
029.jpg
We were all suitably enchanted, thank you.
030.jpg
Here’s the castle after dark. I love the lighting.
031.jpg
Speaking of people dressing alike and hanging out at Tokyo Disney. Aren't those bows adorable?
032.jpg
Space Mountain sort of matches the castle at the moment.
033.jpg
Enjoy your ride on Space Castle.
034.jpg
I love the lighting package and mini-show in World Bazaar. Great way to end the evening. Let's hop over to DisneySea, shall we?

Well, we're getting near the end, but at least we still have DisneySea. Shiriki is very excited that we're coming back.

Shiriki Strikes Again.gif


I think he's waving at us!

I don't make cheesy, shaky gifs very often. Don't get used to it.
035.jpg
You can never get enough of Tokyo DisneySea.
036.jpg
I’d like to stay in the Hotel Mira Costa someday, but it’s pretty expensive (shocking, I know).
037.jpg
You can actually get wet on Aquatopia during certain times of the day.
038.jpg
Looks like KT and Megan are OK with that.
039.jpg
How can you make Mysterious Island even better? Visit it when the sun goes down.
039a.jpg
Nemo Mickey is ready to explore.
041.jpg
My somewhat blurry photo doesn’t do this area justice.
042.jpg
Yep--I’m a big fan of the classic Disney Nautilus. Looks like it’s ready to head out to sea.
043.jpg
A very nice evening on Mediterranean Harbor.
044.jpg
I like stopping at the USS Columbia on the American Waterfront.
044a.jpg
It’s always nice to drink a gin-and-tonic here. Teddy Roosevelt is one of my favorite presidents.
044b.jpg
This is my favorite bar at any Disney resort--and it’s usually packed.
045.jpg
The Hotel Hightower looks especially creepy after dark.
046.jpg
Again, there is no such thing as a bad view in this park.
047.jpg
So, that’s how Scrooge McDuck got so rich.
048.jpg
When you see this building at night . . .
049.jpg
. . . how could you think it’s anything but this?
050.jpg
Shiriki strikes again! Such an adorable little imp!
051.jpg
“And whoever walked the floors of Hill House, walked alone.”
052.jpg
And that would be Shiriki. (He also adorns my Christmas tree each year.)
053.jpg
Hightower: All the babes wanted him, until Shiriki came along.
054.jpg
Don’t miss the theming under your feet. One last post to go.

Well, it's our last night. Let's try to make the most of it.
055.jpg
"The horror . . . the horror . . ."
055a.jpg
It’s no surprise that Port Discovery looks even better after dark.
056.jpg
Aquatopia is the prettiest pointless ride ever. I love it.
057.jpg
Even the water glows.
058.jpg
They run it a bit drier after dark.
059.jpg
The future needs to look like this--now!
060.jpg
One last look at the Aquatopia station.
060a.jpg
This is what California Disneyland’s Tomorrowland should look like.
061.jpg
The volcano looms ominously. Not nicely, but ominously!
062.jpg
“Arise, Asmodeus, arise! Duffy invokes thee!”
063.jpg
The phallic symbols of Mermaid Lagoon come to life at night. (That sounded bad. Sorry.)
064.jpg
Sheik Mickey awaits his harem. (Don’t tell Minnie!)
065.jpg
Yeah, we rode Sindbad again. These guys are still stoned on those bananas.
066.jpg
We stopped here to relax and get a drink. Some played Pokemon. I think I’ll grab a meal here someday. The curry looked pretty good.
067.jpg
“Ah, so this is your first time in the Casbah, effendi? Well, watch yourself.”
068.jpg
“There are cutthroats and villains everywhere! And they like to trap monsters!”
069.jpg
Chandu wants you to know that he’s sort of a big deal.
070.jpg
We ended our night with Toy Story Mania Fast Passes.
071.jpg
You have to enter via the gaping maw of Woody.
072.jpg
You’re a toy in Andy’s bedroom--best theming of the Toy Story rides.
073.jpg
One last look at the volcano. Sigh.
074.jpg
The saddest photo ever--the shuttle to Narita. Oh, the anti-climax of it. That’s all! Thanks for reading.

Yup, we were playing Pokemon Go in that food court! A nice Japanese man flagged us down and showed us a picture of the North America Exclusive Pokemon and we traded! We're still friends in the game now. I miss Japan and pretty much everything about it.

I have to say Chuck, I do really enjoy your TRs. I like your photos and your humor is fun.

One question I do have is about this monorail photo which I'm so glad you shared! I have never seen it before at Tokyo Disney.

Image

I was trying to figure out what that little "Timetable" box in the bottom right means? What do the numbers on the left in the blue box represent, and what do the numbers in the white box represent? I can't figure it out and I tried to think about for a while! If someone could explain that would be great!

Thanks for sharing, visiting Tokyo Disney is definitely a goal for me, but until then, your reports really hold me over!

^^ Lol, there's going to be a new fresh strip of "TDS blue" below Bayside Station in that map,
once Magic Springs is built. Will look interesting on all the Resort maps they have, heh. :smile:

Standard format for Japanese timetables. The numbers in the blue represent hours (Japan uses a 24 hour system, so PM times will use numbers past 12), while the white box represents the respective hours' minutes. By reading a row with a given hour on it, you can see at what times a train would arrive or depart in that hour.

The 33, 46, and 59 next to the 6 indicate arrival times of 6:33, 6:46, and 6:59 respectively. The 23 indicates 11PM, so reading across would give us arrival times of 11:06, 11:19, and 11:32. Since monorails run fairly constantly between 7AM and 11PM, there's no real need to list specific times for that period.
