The Tokyo Disneyland is on the bucket list of many people, but in reality the park they should go see is Disney Sea. Unless you are in Europe, in case you want to go to Disneyland Paris, which requires its own preparation.
Fisney Sea is amazing not just for the cyberpunk vibe, although the rollercoaster which runs through the volcano is closed at the moment. You could try the Raging Spirit instead, it is an amazing roller coaster in the Lost River Delta, and to get back to Port Discovery ot the Mediterrenean Harbor, you just take the boat.
But the main reason, at least in the eyes of my kids, for preferring the Disney Sea park over the Disneyland is not only that papa can have a beer or even a mojito, it is the character greetings. They happen equally early as in Disneyland, but the lines are much shorter (and you do not have to go to the ”greeting docks” either). And they have odd characters that die-hard fans would, well, die for.
My kids got to meet Daisy Duck and Goofy. Someone scooled in quantum theory will have to explain why they can be in two places at once. But they also got to meet Gepetto and the fox from Pinocchio, but we did not get up to Benjamin Cricket, he was too busy. And my daughter got a date with King Louie from the Jungle Book, although daddy had better come along and chaperone that one.
I am Wisterian Watertree, recently moved from Bangkok to Tokyo, with a brief visit to Honolulu on the way. I write about travel, especially with our three beautiful kids (two girls and one boy, soon turning six - yes. they are triplets). Travel is education and fun rolled into one, and if you are like me, that is something you want to give to your kids.
