I have always dreamt of going Tokyo but Japan is so expensive! Our Japan trip just happen due to many reasons and I was really stressed out at work + I was almost hospitalized due to suspected Pneumonia. So we decided to take a break and took a trip together to Japan.
Next stop: Happiest place on earth
We visited Disneyland on 6/10/2016, the theme was Halloween!
It was a bright and sunny day. I set my alarm and woke up 6.45 Tokyo time to get ready because we had to take an hour train ride from our station at Ikebukuro to Tokyo station, then transfer to Keio line to Maihama
The grumpy pig ignore me and walk away although I keep asking for photo. RUDE (:P) One thing I notice is the mascot don’t seem to want to take photo with adults, maybe it is just me, or I can’t speak Japanese so they cannot understand me. I was kinda snubbed by a few characters for photo-taking. Is there a way to get a photo-op from them?
TEACH ME SENPAI!
First stop: Star Tours
This was the ride my brother and sister were most excited about. It kinda works like the USS Transformer ride but way cooler. There are 6 different rides you can experienced. Our first ride we queued around 20-30 minutes, subsequently we went again around evening time and realised the ride have a different scenario to experience.
After the ride, we went to get Fast Pass for Monsters Inc ride because the queue was way too long.
After the Star Tours ride, we manage to catch the Halloween parade. Did not really enjoy the first show because the sun was too bright and it was hot sitting under the sun waiting for the parade to start. This photo was actually taken at the 2nd show that we watched again.
The grumpy pig that walked away when I tried to ask for a photo!
I was quite surprised that Japanese are quite kiasu too as people actually start queuing 1 hour before it starts!
Parades are the most fun and must watch in Disneyland. I was just waving to all the characters like a little kid! I felt like I wanted to cry because it felt so magical and fun to be in the Happiest Place on Earth!
One thing I like about Japanese people is that they are very considerate. Before the show starts, the ushers will tell everyone to close their umbrellas, and you can only take photo at eye level. Cannot raise your hand higher than than your head if not you might block others which they obliged. So considerate, unlike in SG
I felt so fortunate and blessed because I never thought this trip would happened as we have been postponing it for months!
I was just so happy that I am able to enjoy myself fully and it was my childhood dream to be able to visit Disneyland! Til now when I think about this trip and looking through the photos I have taken, I would get all teary!
I will probably do a separate post on the yummy food I ate there. Although they won’t the cheapest but it was worth it! :)
