I don't like having not enough sleep so I definitely got grumpy when after I got out of bed the first thing I have to hear from my dear Aunt was "Oh! You're early!" in a not-so-but-really-very-annoying tone. Of course I woke up early because she told me to! I woke up at freaking 5am!! (okay 5:40 but still, that falls at 5'ish oclock!) And even though I was very sleepy, I am very surprised that I was able to sleep in the van despite the loud dance music played by my Uncle (my head was lying just by the speakers). I even fell off the seats (really hurts!) when the van was put into a sudden break but then I slept again... The next thing I remember we arrived in Tokyo Disneyland!
We were there just before it opened and the line was very very long and the people were noissssy! Kenji had to skip school because we didn't want to go to Disneyland on summer break since it will be much more packed with people especially youngsters (i still belong to that group!^^).
Tokyo Disneyland is definitely much bigger than the one in Hong Kong and I love this one more. There were more rides and more attractions to see. Our ticket is valid for both Tokyo Disneyland and Disneysea but we have to choose only one park to go to for that day. Disney Sea would have been a much different experience since most of the rides in HK Disneyland and Tokyo Disneyland were pretty much the same. But I had to go for Tokyo Disneyland first!
We just got in the park and the lines were already long! We tried the Star Wars attraction first and then the Space Mountain.
While I was enjoying my chicken curry rice (not really, it had too much sauce) a lady suddenly gave me her camera and started pointing at my food. It was only 15 seconds later when I finally realized that she wanted the same food that I have but she coulnd't speak Japanese so she then had this clever idea which was to disturb me while munching my food and to ask me to take a picture of it. But I doubt anyone would find out what type of curry rice it is because the chicken was hardly recognizable on my plate.
I remembered that at one point I was running here but I couldn't remember why. I guess after lunch, me and Kenji went to some shops and then when we were called to meet the others Kenji ran and I had to follow (I didn't want to be left behind since I didn't have a phone to contact them!!). Oh goodness, I used to run very fast when I was a kid but I almost died from trying to do so this day. I couldn't breathe! And Kenji didn't even wait for me! Isn't he just adorably nice?? And since he was running much faster than me, I lost sight of him and I really got left behind! I love that cousin of mine! But I managed to find them anyway.
We then walked around and into the castle which was very nice. It rained a bit but the rest of the day just went fine.
It was only 3pm and they were already talking about going home! I didn't want to of course so I said i wanted to stay. Kenneth was just super tired (not much of a Mickey Mouse fan anymore I guess) so he went to the van and waited for us. Well, I'm so sorry for him but I wanted more rides so we got on the Space Mountain again, the Peter Pan Ride and my favorite, Pirates of the Caribean!
The Pirates of the Caribbean was really neat! It was an indoor boat ride and the set was of course about the pirates movie. The animatronic figure of Jack Sparrow almost looked real! He was soooo hot! hehehehe ^^ I just loved it! The other rides and attractions we took earlier this day was the Amazon Cruise or something, the Haunted Mansion (impressive as well) and some I don't remember (I have been having memory gaps recently.
On the way home, I slept on the van again! They just woke me up when we were going to have dinner at a Ramen house (near home). I didn't eat much Ramen because I am not a fan of noodle soup. The serving they have was really huge and there's no way I could finish it so I just had Cha-han instead (fried rice) and my Uncle shared me some of his Ramen. I didn't even finish what he gave me. And then we went home.
Oh we finally have internet in our house by the way. I have been using Kenji's computer and I have it all for myself.
