Mickey gets around. Here he is hanging out by the river in Westernland, probably wondering where Minnie is with his mint julep.
When you take a cruise on the Mark Twain, . . .
. . . be sure to have your passport stamped. Otherwise, Goofy will probably interrogate you somewhere, and nobody wants that.
It’s mighty restful on the river at night.
But work goes on at the Indian village.
I recommend riding the Mark Twain after dark. It’s tougher for some drunken fur trapper to draw a bead on you at night.
More waffles? Why not?
I went with the more “traditional” maple walnut this time.
“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.”
Well, here’s something I’ve never done at Tokyo Disneyland before.
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").
That will be difficult, as I don’t have your number.
Were these figures ever “animated,” like they are at California Disneyland? I remember that Pele had fire shooting out of her head there.
Let’s see . . . singing birds, check.
Singing flowers, check.
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.
Hoo boy--they’re gonna have a hell of a time cleaning this off.
We were all suitably enchanted, thank you.
Here’s the castle after dark. I love the lighting.
Speaking of people dressing alike and hanging out at Tokyo Disney. Aren't those bows adorable?
Space Mountain sort of matches the castle at the moment.
Enjoy your ride on Space Castle.
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?
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.
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!

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.
