23092016 / Tokyo Day 3 – Disneyland

Both Sister and I went Tokyo Disneyland on our third day in Tokyo. Initial plan was to go on the second day but weather was not good. The weather on Day 3 was nowhere better than Day 2 but we had no choice since we will be leaving Tokyo the next day. We had breakfast at the nearest McDonalds outlet from our hotel. Most restaurants are not open in the morning as it is not habitual for Japanese to dine outside for breakfast.

After breakfast, we took the Metro from Ginza-Itchome Station located underneath Hotel Mercure Tokyo Ginza to Shin-Kiba Station. And we took JR Line from Shin-Kiba Station to Maihama Station. As JR Line was not included in our unlimited travel pass, we had to purchase separate return tickets.

I wore my UNIQLO Minnie Mouse T-Shirt to Disneyland to match the theme. All I lacked was a Minnie Mouse head band. To be honest, it was in my initial plan to get one from Disney Store but then chickened out in the end. It was not cheap, approximately B$20 each which you are not going to use it until your next visit to Disneyland.

Welcome to DisneySea! When coming out from the Metro Station, turn left for DisneySea and right for Disneyland. We headed towards the wrong direction and ended up at DisneySea but the crew members were helpful enough to tell us the direction leading to Disneyland.

It was not Sister’s idea to visit Tokyo Disneyland as she had been to Paris Disneyland. So, I offered to pay for her entrance fee. Entrance fee was 7400円 per person.

Meet Goofy and Pluto! They stopped the queue when it had reached a quota limit. So, I did not have a picture taken with Goofy and Pluto. It was drizzling the entire day so there were not much mascots around. Afternoon parade was cancelled too due to the weather.

When I showed this picture to Jennifer over Whatsapp, she thought weather was good that day. Well, it was not as I filtered my pictures with warm tone to make them look like the weather was sunny.

Our first stop was Tomorrowland. We queued for Star Tours: The Adventure Continues as the queue time was less than 15 minutes. We wanted to queue for Monsters, Inc. Ride & Go Seek! but the queue time was approximately an hour and Fast Pass was used up.

It was an interesting ride. However, we could not understand a word the “captain” was saying as everything was conversed in Japanese. But it’s okay; it was the experience that matters. We headed towards the Fast Pass ticket booth for Space Mountain after coming out from Star Tours: The Adventure Continues. We collected our Fast Pass tickets and headed towards ToonTown.

We returned to Tomorrowland when we had pretty much explored ToonTown. We queued for Stitch Encounters as the waiting time was approximately 15 minutes and we still have plenty of time left before our ride for Space Mountain.

Albeit we had Fast Pass for Space Mountain, we still had to queue for approximately 15 minutes before we were seated for a roller coaster ride. I did not know that Space Mountain was a roller coaster ride. I thought it was something like Star Tours: The Adventure Continues whereby you sit inside a 3D stimulator.

I screamed my lung out throughout the ride as I am not at all a roller coaster fan. Thank goodness it was all dark and you are unable to see the height you are at. LOL! We headed towards Fantasyland after the Space Mountain ride. Thankfully, I was still able to walk in straight line. LOL!

Both Sister and I decided to find a place to rest as we were both feeling hungry and tired at the time. We had an early dinner at Hungry Bear Restaurant. We had Pork Cutlet Curry Rice with Tuna Salad.

We rested for more than half an hour before we continue the tour. Night parade does not start until 7:30PM. So, we walked around and find ourselves some entertainment. The temperature dropped slightly by evening time as it had been raining all day long.

So, this pretty much summed up my Tokyo Disneyland tour. We stopped by a Disney Store on the way out and Sister was interested with a Winnie the Pooh big size plush toy. LOL!

We returned to Shin-Kiba Station and had another round of dinner. While waiting for Sister outside the washroom at Shin-Kiba Station earlier in the morning, I spotted this 湾岸そ. The reason why it caught my attention was that everyone stood while eating. There was no chair provided.

Kakiage Tempura & Egg Soba | 450円

You can choose in between soba and udon for the noodles. I went for soba as I am not much of an udon fan. I liked the soup; it was clear and tasted slightly sweet. It was not as flavorful as compared to ramen but I think I liked soba better than ramen. After having our soba dinner, both Sister and I retreated back to the hotel for the day.
