Japan Spring Trip: Tokyo - Tokyo Disneyland (Apple Holiday)
In continuation of my previous blogpost on my Japan trip, here's what happened!
It was my second time at Disneyland, my first was at Hong Kong. My siblings and I grew up watching Disney cartoons and, undeniably, we kind of let loose little kid inside of us. :p
It's such a magical land.
Look at how happy the little girl is!
The other time when we went to Hong Kong Disneyland, we had no idea about the Disney FASTPASS service. This time, thankfully we had a tour guide and he kindly led us and taught us how to strategically use this service.
Got to thank God that the crowd that day was "extremely little" compared to the usual standards. There were much lesser people, which was a good thing for us since the queues were shorter. But the atmosphere was still lively nevertheless.
The famous Disney Jumbo Turkey Leg! On a usual day, it may take up to one hour to buy this from the stall but thankfully, since there wasn't many people we got to buy it immediately - no queue! Yay :D It was nice.
Weather was extremely fine. Forecast said it would rain but thank God it didn't BUT, the wind was extremely strong - violent at times - that the parades had to be cancelled. That was my only disappointment :( Didn't get to watch the parade nor stay for the fireworks this time but most likely it would be cancelled too due to the weather.
When I came back, many people ask me which was my favourite ride or attraction but I can't tell. I only went for a few: Mark Twain Riverboat, It's A Small World, Pooh's Hunny Hunt, Space Mountain, Splash Mountain, and Mickey's PhilharMagic.
To me, I love every single moment I spent at Disneyland and everything was equally great. Even if I didn't get to play any rides (but it would be a waste :p), just mingling around and watching the characters interact with the public was good enough.
Admittedly, I wished I took more photos on that day but I was too busy living the magically moment. Time flew by too quickly and boy were we reluctant to bid goodbye to Disneyland :( Would have wanted to spend more time here. Even just sitting down and watching everyone else made me happy. This is the Disney effect.
So we left, and headed to this place to have our final dinner at Tokyo, before we head home the next day.

Anyway, this was some of the things we got back from Disneyland. Photo taken at home haha. Would love to visit Disneyland again one day :)
I guess this is the end of the Japan trip posts. It was a great trip. As it was a group tour, I thank God all the participants were cooperative, everyone was punctual most of the time and there was no drama. I'd love to visit Japan again another time when I can. I thoroughly enjoyed myself.
