Day 5 Disney Time
Today we made a trip to Disneyland, which is made up of two parks; the Disneyland and Disney Sea. Both parks are at the Disneyland Resort. It is situated at the eastern part of Tokyo, assessable by the JR-Yamanote line (platform 3 or 4), approximately twenty minutes ride and costs nothing for us as we have the seven day pass. Only four stops from Tokyo Central Station that is and stopping at the Maihama Station.
Upon reaching, we took the Disney Line monorail to access the parks, costing Yen 260 for an adult. I recommend a day pass for Yen 650 because you need to access at least trice to complete the two parks and getting off the park (260 x 3 = Yen 780).
We started with the Disney Sea.
As today is a Saturday the parks were full of visitors, mainly locals with their children. The parks managed to keep their reputation well as I see happy faces everywhere! Equally important is the smiles from all support staff at the parks.
Eating here is extremely challenging with the massive crowd but I guess there are enough food for all, only the lines were just too long! We tried eating at the restaurant instead of the kiosks but unfortunately they were full too. One of them insists we have reservation! Without a choice, we queued up at one of the kiosks that sell smoked turkey legs. Blessings for us in disguised as the smoked turkey legs we bought turned out to be a good experience for us and tasty too!
We didn’t manage to get on many rides or shows because it was too crowded. But somehow managed to get on an electric rail way and a gondola ride. Other rides would have made us waiting for at least an hour each! The view around the Disney Sea is just magnificent, coupled with the presence of cartoon characters and their antics!
By the time we were ready for the other park, Disneyland we took a monorail ride again. It was unfortunate we can’t enter the park because we have mistakenly bought the wrong ticket; good for only one park instead of two! Without a choice we went back to Disney Sea!
