2016 Tokyo Disney Resort Trip Summary

To kick off the Holiday season this year I traveled to Tokyo Disney Resort.  This is my second trip to Tokyo but the first to experience their Christmas offerings and check out the 15th Anniversary Celebration for Tokyo DisneySea.  Visit my Spring of 2015 trip summary page for pictures, videos, thoughts and observations from my first trip.   For details of the 2016 Tokyo Disneyland & DisneySea festivities here is the full press release.

I will update this page throughout the trip with the latest posts, pictures, etc.. and once I return with full picture sets.

Here are some stats from the trip:

  • 6 Nights/7 Days  (4.5 days in the theme parks)
  • 52.2 miles logged on the pedometer
  • Over 10,000 SLR Pictures
  • Over 1,600 cell phone pictures
  • Over 180 videos clips for just over two and a half hours
