We got a big group together to explore the magnificent DisneySea theme park in Tokyo during the Japanese holiday season.
1. 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea
It is a submarine-type attraction and is based on the Jules Verne novel Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea
2. Tower of Terror
An accelerated drop tower dark ride
3. Journey to the Center of the Earth
An attraction based on Jules Verne's Journey to the Center of the Earth
4. Little Mermaid Show
Deep in the underwater kingdom, you'll find the Mermaid Lagoon Theater
5. Temple of the Crystal Skull
This Temple, and the ride, is not related to the fourth Indiana Jones film
6. Raging Spirits
High-speed rollercoaster attraction racing through the excavated ruins of an ancient stone ceremonial site
Security confiscated my alcoholic beverages prior to entering the park which sucked but luckily I still had a few hidden.
It was blazing hot with a rocking 40 degrees Celsius it was almost unbearable to walk around.
Lineups at most attractions were at least 1.5 hours thus we tried to obtain all the fast-passes which gave us immediate access without lining up.
The most mesmerizing show was definitely The Little Mermaid at the Mermaid Lagoon. Ariel was hanging off cables while Ursula tried to grab her by using giant robotic hands which was very impressive.
I was disappointed with the food. We had lunch at Journey to the center of the earth cafe where they sold only; Beers, Turkey Legs and Gyoza.
At the end of the day we had dinner at a Mexican place in the Delta area where food was mediocre as well.
I want to thank Amber for making this all possible and a special thanks to the crew that attended; Sam, Ra, Mewan & Liyang
I decided not to stay for the Fireworks show during the evening. There was still a lot of work I had to attend to in Tokyo thus I had to leave early unfortunately.
The highlights were the Little Mermaid Show, Journey to the Center of the Earth, Tower of Terror and the 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. Just make sure to reserve your 1-Day Pass ticket for DisneySea ahead to avoid long waiting lines.
