Tokyo Disney Resort was the Destination!

Tokyo Trip Report , Part2

We left Ikebukuro.  Then the next place we headed for was

When it comes to a sightseeing with children in Tokyo, Tokyo Disney Resort tops the list.

I’ve visited there many times since it opened.   It is amazing that it keeps its popularity for 30 years, despite the fact that it is crowded and the fees are high.   Tokyo Disney Resort has two theme parks, Disneyland and DisneySea.  We chose DisneySea this time.  It was our second visit, but my children didn’t remember the last visit because they were little.

The first attraction we took a ride in was” Journey to the Center of the Earth.”   The waiting time was 80 minutes!!!

I was standing in a line with excitement, because this is a high-speed thrilling attraction.   Actually, it wasn’t thrilling as I expected.   People get dull as they get older.  It is sad(>_<)    My son looked like he was enjoying it.    On the other hand, my daughter said cooly ” we shouldn’t have waited for 80 minutes only to enjoy a three-minute ride!”   Maybe she was right.

The next ride was “20,000 Leagues Under the Sea.”

We waited for 20 minutes as well.  We rode it,  that went down with bubbling and turned around and around.   It was also one of the Disney’s typical ride, yet my son liked it.   Then we walked to “Arabian Coast.”    More than an hour wait was needed to get into  “The Magic Lamp Theater”     So, we gave it up and had dinner.   We ate curry.  Though it was expensive, the taste was nothing special.

After that,  we decided to watch a show, not to take a ride.    We enjoyed the show of  “Little Mermaid”.    It was fantastic and very comfortable with air conditioning in the theater.   I wanted to take a nap.    After that,  we went to “Broadway Music Theater to watch the Micky’s show, but it was already over.   What a shame!   A lot of people gathered around “Toy Story Mania” next to the theater.  It seems to be a very new attraction.

We still had time.   So we walked to “Port Discovery” and tried “Aquatopia” and “Stormrider. ”   Aquatopia has two courses, wet and non-wet.    We had to chose  the wet course with  no waiting time  or  the non-wet course with 20-minute waiting time.  We chose the non-wet course because we didn’t have clothes for changing.  The wet-course must have been more fun.   StormRider is a ride whose seats move in synchronous with the screen.    It was relatively interesting even though we didn’t have to wait.

It was almost 10 o’clock when we got out from the park.  What a day!  We were dead tired from walking around all day.  Anyway, we enjoyed the day.
