I love how much they love the rodents over there! Also, this all looks based on the Ufufy collection.

^ I figured you'd know which "type/brand" these guys are, heh.
They didn't look like those Tsum Tsum things we've seen. :mickey:

I always find it funny how much Chip, Dale and Stitch seems to have won over so many fans to be big sellers on so much merchandise in Asia... poor Goofy. A couple of times I've picked up group set packs of something and the 4 pack is: Mickey, Minnie, Donald and Stitch taking the 4th slot. Not an issue for me since Chip, Dale and Stitch are some of my favorite characters that I always try and get a photo with at the parks but I know some friends who got fed up of the overabundance of Stitch. Same people who don't mind all the Chip and Dale though. ;) I can see their point, I really enjoyed the first movie but there was a lot of sequels and tv shows. I still remember the crowd giving the biggest cheer of the night during Fantasmic when he popped out of the hat and his girlfriend zoomed past on a jet-ski.

Heck, a lot of my younger Korean students don't know where he's from since the movies aren't re-run very often and have no idea who Lilo is. They just know of Stitch the character from the abundance of stationery, indoor shoes (I have a pair for work as well for the kindergarten classes) toys and stuffed animals etc.

Will be the first time I'm going to a Disney year-long celebration. Can't imagine how long the lines are going to be. Good thing I'm going with a certain group that may or may not start with the letter A

^ Believe it or not, Tokyo Disney is really good with dealing with long lines and huge crowds at both parks.
But it's still a bit of an easier visit if you can go on a weekday, rather than the weekend.

Also coming up at TDLR...

Tokyo Disney Resort has announced details of its new Pixar Playtime event. Running January 11 – March 19, 2018, at DisneySea, the event includes Pixar-themed games, character greetings, and new food and merchandise.

Fun and Games


This winter, Tokyo DisneySea will host Pixar Playtime, a celebration of Pixar Studios with a competitive twist. New gaming booths themed to different Pixar movies will host fun challenges for guests of all ages. Booths will include a miniature version of the house from Up, a Cars pitstop, and the kitchen from Ratatouille. There is no word on any prizes yet, but during the summer’s Natsu Matsuri event gaming booths offered summer-themed prizes, so we’ll wait and see what Pixar Playtime has in store…


Thanks to http://www.tdrexplorer.com for the information and the photos. :mickey:

(The merchandise and special themed foods/snacks look AWESOME, too!)

Great theming to the 1940s American Waterfront!

And The Rat gets his own cooking game! C'est magnifique!
(...And I believe that's a very cool looking PRIZE WHEEL that's at every games booth.)
