Re: Photo TR: My first visit to Tokyo Disney Resort


Recommended Posts

I finally was able to visit the Tokyo Disney Resort last October as part of the TPR Japan trip. My #1 Theme Park goal has been Tokyo Disney for quite a few years now especially since I found about the existence of Disney Sea. After many false starts, I was able to finally make it there and it did not disappoint. I am going through many photos and I promise not to post all of them, though there still will probably be too many, lol. Anyways let us start:

 

Tokyo Disneyland Part 1:

Yes, I am beyond excited!

Good morning Mickey! Maybe he is not a early morning rodent.

The Grand Ambassador Hotel does look nice.

It is a good ides to get to Disneyland early, though it only took about 5 minutes to get through the gates once they were open.

My ticket for fun!

I started with Tokyo Disneyland first.

It was recommended that I went over to Monsters Inc. first to grab a fast pass. I believe that this is still the most popular ride in the park.

Well, we all knew where I probably was going to go for my first ride of the day. Pooh’s Hunny Hunt.

I think the queue was more around the 15-20 minute range.

There were a few cute items in the queue. Sorry for the lack of on ride photos. I just wanted take it all in.

Sure, I still have time until my fast pass is ready.

The building is sure colorful.

The loading area is also full off color.

Oh, the have the Disney characters on this version too. I hope that Orlando does this in the future.

Our fastpass is ready, let us head on over.

The dome in the queue had some monsterific artwork.

It is Halloween time in the parks.

Oh yeah, popcorn. I had to try as many popcorn stands while I was here. Honey was the first one. The honey flavoring was very light. I honestly could have used a bit more flavoring.

Hi there Space Mountain!! Yay! Space Mountain!

This walkway into Tomorrowland really reminds me of how Orlando’s used to look like in the 1980’s.

Is this how California’s version used to be?

I approve of this sponsor.

These rides are fun.

Oooooooooo. Time for breakfast.

This was extra yummy!

Oh, Frontierland has a slightly different name here.

Ooooo, Splash Mountain. We will come back to you later.

Again, all kinds of Halloween theming all over the park.

I have to admit that I am not the biggest parade fan, but I ended up watching all of the parades, some more than once, while at the resort.

Chip. Dale is on the other side.

The costumes and floats were extremely top notch.

Yeah, you know you have an awesome ride here.

Not the best picture, but you can still see all the detail that goes into one of these parade floats.

Oh wow a Big Hero Six float? I love Big Hero Six!

Ok, it is time for this. I have done the one out in California before so I am looking forward to this. It did not disappoint.

My guess is this version would be like if they did it in Orlando since the Tokyo Mansion is very similar to the Orlando one.

It looks very similar to the one in California. That is a good thing.

Popcorn #2: Soy Sauce and Butter. It looked like that it was the most popular flavor of the day due to the size of the queue. I honestly thought it could have used more flavoring.

Oh, I don’t care what anyone says. I love The Country Bears. My family always made sure to see this show every year in Orlando. I had to see it in Japan.

Great pics, Erik, and a lot of them look very familar

 

heh. . it will still be several weeks before I get to my TDL/TDS pics in my report. . . but I love that you got a bunch of pics that I didn't take, and I'm sure it will be vice versa (I took a ton of parade pics at both parks over the 4 days).

 

I dunno how I missed that Big Hero 6 float tho. . must have been in line for Space Mountain or something

 

and don't apologize for Country Bears! I saw the show twice (and loved how they were mostly in Japanese, but some songs were in English). . .and I think I did Tikki Room 3 times - and I'm not even a big Stitch fan. I just love that show.

 

good start, and excited to see more pics. Brings back SUCH great memories, hard to believe it was only 3 months ago!

First, yay! You finally got there!

 

Second, I thought the soy-sauce-and-butter popcorn was underrated (I think I was the only person on our group who liked it a few years back).

 

Third, I'm looking forward to lots of Chandu stuff when you get to DisneySea.

Ok onto DisneySea! Yes it is an amazing park and I have photos to share. Things are a bit chaotic because I present them in the order that I experienced the park and I was in a bit of theme park shell shock. The photos do get a bit better in the last 1/3 of the report and they will in the next 2 updates. I tend to be short of words and like to post lots of photos so here they are:

There is a lot of construction going on outside my hotel room. Yes, it is the huge expansion to DisneySea!

I have to admit that I did not get up for park opening the next three days. I’m must be getting old. The Hilton had a great breakfast buffet.

I also wanted to get some popcorn. Popcorn #3. Strawberry Popcorn. I liked this one quite a bit.

I enjoyed the Halloween harbor show. My photos came out terrible as we did not have a good location. I just will post this one to represent the show.

Journey was in the middle of a 3 month refurb. We knew this months before the trip but that is ok. There will usually always be some big ride closed somewhere. I got everything else.

I will just call it The Chandu ride. It is my favorite ride at the Tokyo Disney Resort, I ended up riding it 7 or 8 times. Lol

I would be willing to trade pretty much any Florida Disney ride for a version of this. Lol

Hi Chandu

After a long voyage, Chandu is sleeping at the end.

Our Tower fast passes were ready so we needed to use a quick shortcut through here. Oh my word...

Some of the Halloween themed rodent banners.

Tower of Terror in Orlando is still my favorite Disney attraction, I really liked this version as well. The theming on this one really is the best in the world.

Something really bad happened here.

D3D99548-AA7B-4E8F-ACCC-FFA458CA4DAD.thumb.jpeg.6902254c6adc76db729ddd8fd7b5b65a.jpeg

I really loved all of the Hightower adventure murals.

The preshow is the absolute highlight of the attraction.

Yes, I will spend money on you in the gift shop.

Yeah, I did not pay attention to the signs. I am a bad tourist.

In case if you did not know, DisneySea is actually built right next to Tokyo Bay. This is the sea wall.

Just amazing theming to be theming.

It actually was a bit better than I was expecting.

The theming is really pretty neat for a somewhat simple coaster.

Poof! Out of the fog comes a coaster train.

Let us head down into the Mysterious Island section. Again, just amazing theming.

I believe this was a ramp down to the 20,000 Leagues ride. 20,000 Leagues was the biggest surprise of the trip.

No, you do not ride in the old submarines like these on this version.

So close, but this gives me another reason to come back to Japan right? It is ok as EVERTHING else was open and amazing.

Yummy yummy Mickey Mummy. I may have eaten more than one.

Did you know that DisneySea had a double carousel? Neither did I.

I think this is Popcorn #4? This one was my favorite on the trip? Lots of flavor. Just right for me.

I may have ridden this a few more times again.

I may have purchased something in the gift shop.

I may have purchased these as well. I simply love the “Spooky Boo” Parade. I promise you some photos in the next update.

I understand the Fantasmic is leaving Tokyo soon, so I made sure that I saw it. I have seen the other two versions so I might as well finish out the set before this one is gone forever.

The show is very similar to the other versions.

This one has a big freaking volcano in the back so it makes it the best one.

Again, I love Disney parks at night. I will leave you with a few nighttime photos of DisneySea.

I ended up not riding Toy Story Mania here due to the wait times. Maybe next visit. Boy, the building looks amazing at night.

Oh yeah, this was great! I thought it was a notch better than the California version.

Yes, you Chandu. I heard it is even better at night.

Just in case if you needed another reminder what I was going to ride again.

Yes, I did.....lol. At least I waited right up until closing. As you can tell I quickly took the photo.

Mysterious Island maybe the best themed land ever.

Soaring is the newest attraction at DisneySea. I did check out the next day. I will post photos from it in the next update.

Great reports!

 

I agree Orlando's Small World should get the characters sometime in the future. Trying to find them hidden in the scenes is my favorite part of the ride.

 

Tokyo has the best merchandise by far. However, the one thing I found was lacking was Shiriki merchandise. In 2018, I think I just found a keychain.

I think the Little Mermaid section was called "Triton's Undersea Kingdom"

 

did you get to see the show in there? the King Triton animatronic was impressive as hell!

What a fun trip report! You captured some wonderful nighttime color shots! I was quite taken by that Tower Hotel - an architectural treat! I've gotta explore more about that "inn." (Also loved your final shot - Sinbad & YOU - a gem of a pic!) Looking forward to any future reports.

Great TR Erik! There's so much of the Tokyo Disney Resort to see,

from the hotels to the parks, and surrounding areas.

 

That said.... With Chandu + Lava Monster + Shiriki Utundu in one park =

 

Thanks for sharing all this!

This next group of photos is from Tokyo Disneyland when I hopped back and forth from DisneySea on my third and fourth days. I figure I will just lump my Disneyland photos together. Enjoy!

I am not sure if this could count as a hidden Mickey.

I decided to head on over to Tokyo Disneyland first.

I finally took a photo of the castle. Also it is almost time for “Spooky Boo!”

It maybe my all time favorite Disney parade. Well, it is right up there with the , “Boo To You” Parade during MNSSHP.

It is a real treat. Everyone waves at you as you go by.

Big restaurant. I think it is called, The Hungry Bear.

I am always impressed with detailed theming that is a bit off the beaten path.

I did explore the Hungry Bear. Lots of Woodchuck stuff inside.

I do love the attraction posters. Any idea where I could buy these?

Before I leave Tokyo Disneyland, I wanted to share a few photo of the new area under construction. This is where the Beauty and The Beast attractions are bring built.

I think it is going to be similar to the Alien Saucer ride that is at Disney Studios in Orlando.

Here are the final batch of photos from DisneySea. I think the rest are evening photos. I did post a few photos from the new Soaring attraction here. Enjoy:

So, the listed time for Soaring got down to about 90 minutes so I decided to go ride it. The ride is pretty much the same as all the others (it switches out footage of The Eiffel Tower for The Tokyo Tower and it ends at DisneySea). The building and the backstory/pre show are certainly top notch.

so great to see the Soaring pics. . .we fast passed it, so didn't wait in the outdoor queue line. Some lovely architecture there!

 

also William got reprimanded for snapping a few pics in the pre-show room (no pictures please!), so I'm thrilled to see they weren't being strict about it and you got some pics to share (it must just depend on which cast member is working it).

 

the detail in that preshow room was astounding. . .as was the projection mapping in the next rooms too! hard to figure out how they even did it.

 

thanks for sharing your pics!

Actually all the photos were from the queue area and in the main hall. I did not take any in the pre show room itself. I was able to see the pre show twice due to the count of how many people were in the room. It was pretty neat so no complains here!

I've been there when they've had their Halloween decorations up, but I've never see the Spooky Boo parade--looks like fun.

 

And curry popcorn rules!
