Tokyo Disney Sea was a big highlight of our Japan trip, it was the first Disneyland we’ve ever been too and it truly didn’t disappoint! Took me a while to find the best photos to post up, as there are just TOO many good ones!
There are some really fun and crazy photos from our day in DisneySea, so thought I would include a few of Vess and Myself showing a bit more of our silly side in Japan. (If you ask our friends, they usually see the silly side of us anyway!)
We chatted to some friends from church, who are on their way to Japan next year. They had seen some of our pics so I thought to include on the blgo some more tops on how we got around Disneysea.
Val’s TOP TIPS
1. Ticket Purchase
Firstly, you may want to consider pre buying your tickets online, as it saves you waiting to buy a ticket when you get to the gate. But overall, it wasn’t too bad to wait with other patient Japanese Disney lovers to purchase an entry ticket. We found that the line moved really quickly and like everything else in Japan, it was super efficient!
2. Fast Pass!
They have FAST PASSes in Disneyse from a few of the major rides in Disneysea which allows you to take a ticket for a ‘fast pass’ line . It gives you the opportunity, to come back to the ride, maybe, 45 minutes later. Instead of going through the regular line, which may have an hours wait, you are able to line up in the Fast Pass line, which has a significantly shorter wait time. It gives you the opportunity to walk around the park, rather than having to wait in line for hours! We suggest you grab these first!
3. The Shows
Seriously, the shows were a MASSIVE highlight. They have so many international performers within the acts, who are just SO amazingly talented. For me, just going to 3 of the shows, made my ticket worth it! Extremely professional, engaging performances and exceptional musicians make going to everyone of these A MUST. Ariel’s performance and the Big Band Beat are HIGHLY recommended!
There are some crazy, imaginative and magical people out there who can think of such overwhelmingly creative costumes, floats and music. Each parade is performed within the centre of the park, (the giant lake in the middle). Make sure you note the show times, and grab a good spot to watch the magic happen! Despite being in Japanese, it is still a stunning scene to watch! Warning: one of the shows they spray ALOT of water, so be ready for it!
5. Walking Around
The park was surprising large enough to occupy you for the whole day but not so big that you find you don’t have enough time. So take your time enjoying each park of the magic in each area, may it be Ariel’s Grotto or Arabia, cause each part can be enjoyed thoroughly! We thought we would run out of time, but found a day was perfect for doing all the rides and seeing all the attractions
Well, there we go, Val’s top tips for DisneySea Japan!
There are alot of other great tourist sites with some great insights and recommendations, but overall be prepared to be wowed and amazed. Drink a lot of water, wear good walking shoes, and be prepared for the MAGIC of DISNEYLAND!!!
