So did we. My group, 3 adults, ended up in a Happy Magic Room. Maybe it was the only three bedroom room available? We're not entirely sure still, but the Happy Magic Rooms were the most memorable part of the trip. Was fascinated the mirror.

I think I'd still be curious about riding TDS' Toy Story Midway Mania, considering the two parks practically crap all over the American versions of.... etc. :wink: And I seem to remember they really worked at making it look like Andy's bedroom, including everybody going under the bed! This is still true? If so, awesome! And honestly, queueing for the DCA (original) version of it, isn't all that exciting. It's all mainly outdoors, and if you're lucky, Mr.Potato Head will be spieling (spieling?) for your queueing entertainment. He was "Backstage" when I rode TSMM over a year ago, i.e.not operating.

Just a reminder that everything TDLR copies from the U.S., doesn't necessarily mean you should skip it... i.e. Tower of Terror...?

My problem with Toy Story Mania is that it's exhausting pulling the thing and Buzz/Justice League is better.

^^Sure the queue is different, but the ride itself is an exact clone (albeit in Japanese). Tower of Terror is not a fair comparison as the RIDE is different as well as the queue and reshow. I've ridden Mania a couple of times at Disney Sea but won't in the near future when they have such other amazing DIFFERENT rides that I can't ride in the states.

^This. Even with Indiana Jones being a clone of California's for the most part, the ride itself is different just enough to be its own thing unlike TSM (and Soarin' when that opens).

Definitely skip Pooh, it’s exactly the same as the one in MK, Disneyland, HKDL and SHDL for sure. :mickey:

I can agree with all of the above about TSMM. But TDL's Pooh is the only trackless version of the others in the other MKs.
So I would not skip riding Pooh's Hunny Hunt at all. But skip all the others because....Trackless > Tracked.

I'm definitely aware about TDL's Pooh being vastly superior to all of the Pooh rides in the world, so it's high on my list!!

I used to intern for Eddie Sotto back when he was at Progress City in Santa Monica, and am a big fan of his work. I can't miss Pooh's Hunny Hunt, for sure!

...And you might run into your very own FanGurls, like myself, Mike, and Peter did in TDS, back in the TPR 2007 Japan Tour!

Here's Mike with them. Really sweet young women, no English spoken, but we had fun just trying to say "Hello!"
And they got a kick out of finding out we were from 3 different countries! Canada (me); USA (Mike); Sweden (Peter).

Hmmm. Then, maybe they could put a "Chicken Exit" (like Space Mountain?)
after the queue, so I can get out and not have to ride it again? ;)

Just discovered, at http://www.tdrexplorer.com ~ they've posted two maps of the parks, where "Winter Hot Drinks & Soups" can be found.

Awesome idea, for visiting during the Winter Season! :mickey: And some very nice drink combinations as well as soups to be found, too!

Here's the map for Tokyo Disneyland. I'm betting that the "Backwards C" is for the Hot Drinks. (o;
