Asia Trip Log – Day 11 – A windy day of park hopping #TokyoDisneyland & #TokyoDisneySea
A trip log from Wednesday April 15, 2015 features a two visits to Tokyo Disneyland and one to Tokyo DisneySea on this windy day as Disneyland turns 32.
Started off this morning seeing sunshine.. one of the few times this entire trip. Got ready and we left the room just after 8am. Took the shuttle to the Resort Line and road it around to the Gateway station. Disembarked and walked through the Bon Voyage store then onto Disneyland. Arrived just after 9am and the masses had started to enter. Strolled toward the hub and took some Castle pictures then stopped by the American Waffle Company for breakfast (note it does not open till 9:30). After eating walked through Adventureland and out to Westernland. Had some time so walked through Critter Country and then back to catch the first cruise of the Mark Twain at 10:05am. Sailed around the Rivers of America. Once back ashore headed back to Adventureland and Theatre Orleans to catch the Minnie show. It was cancelled due to the high wind so the characters and performers made a brief appearance for pictures. Made our way to the hub just in time to hear they cancelled the Easter Parade because of the wind too. Walked into Tomorrowland and tried my luck for the Once Upon a Time Lottery and failed to win tickets. Walked around the hub as it started to cloud up and drizzle so headed for World Bazaar and cover. Decided to head for DisneySea. Walked through the Mediterranean Harbor and Mysterious Island on my way to Mermaid Lagoon for lunch. After lunch wandered through the Arabian Coast going to a ride on the Carrousel then headed back to the harbor to see if they were going to do the Easter Show. Along the way walked around Mysterious Island and then the Explorers Fort before finding a spot. The show was cancelled a few moments after I found a spot due to the high winds. Walked back through the American Waterfront then the Mediterranean Harbor on the way to the front of the park. Did some shopping along the way. The rest of my group headed back to the room to take a quick break before the evening and I turned around and decided to circle the park for some daytime/rain free pictures. Started off in the American Waterfront area. Spent some time walking along the water then caught a performance of a Table is Waiting before boarding the Columbia to look around. Wandered back around the Tower of Terror then into Trolley Park. Spend some time in the New York Streets then walked to the harbor to confirm the last Easter show was cancelled. It was so back to New York and boarded the Electric Railway to Port Discovery. Walked to the Lost River Delta and wandered around the Character Meet & Greet then past Indiana Jones and the Raging Spirits attractions before ending up in the Arabian Coast. Continued on past the Mermaid Lagoon and to through the Mysterious Island. Made my way to the Mediterranean Harbor and out of the park. Hopped on the Resort Line and disembarked at the Disneyland Station and headed into the park. Roamed World Bazaar then rejoined the rest of my group. Walked around the hub and into Fantasyland. Decided to grab a bite to eat at the Queen of Hearts Banquet Hall. After dinner took a spin on the Tea Cups and then walked through Fantasyland and into Westernland. The group had dessert and then we found a spot for Dreamlights, which was promptly cancelled due to weather and in its place another parade of characters. Watched from Westernland and then hurried around to Fantasyland to catch it again at the end of the parade route. Then walked back by the Castle and stopped at Snow White’s Grotto on my way to the center of the park. Found a spot for Happiness on High Fireworks and then Once Upon a Time. After the shows (which ran as scheduled) joined the masses heading for World Bazaar and continued on to the Resort Line and back to the hotel to call it a night.
