Tokyo Disneyland! Tokyo Disneyland! Jana and I have been talking about going to Tokyo Disneyland for a month or two now and we finally went to today. The purpose of the trip was not to ride on the rides but to eat a ton of food and to do some shopping.
I picked Jana up at 5:45 and we headed off to Hitachi-no-Ushiku Station where we JR Joban line for Kashiwa. Once we got to Kashiwa we switched to the JR Joban local line and stayed on that until we got to Shinmatsudo. We switched to the JR Musashio line and then we got off at Maihama, and after that it was a short walk to the gates of Tokyo Disneyland. I think we arrived at around 7:50.
The park opens at eight o’clock and you either need to get early or later in the day because the lines to enter the park are long.
Jana and I rode the remodeled Pirates of the Caribbean. There were a couple of new parts with characters from the movie added in but for the most part it was the same old ride. Two Japanese girls sat next to us and proceeded to talk through the entire ride about Johnny Depp. It got rather annoying but the new additions to the ride made up for that.
After that we headed off to find food and get fast passes for Thunder Mountain.
We had enough time after the ride to grab our next snack which was soda flavored popcorn. It stated like the Trix cereal. Then it was time for Thunder Mountain. The ride is a roller coaster that was made for me. No huge drops and not to many climbs up the tracks. It is a roller coaster with small drops and sharp turns. I loved it.
Jana and I then tried to get to One Man’s Dream II.
After the show we wandered around the park and did some shopping. For dinner we ate at the East End Café. It is an Italian restaurant and the food was good. Unfortunately by this point we were both too exhausted to enjoy it as much as we could have.We tried to do some shopping after dinner but most people had that idea. We were out of the park by seven o’clock. We will need to go back because we didn’t eat the delicious waffles that the park has.
