Tokyo Disney Resort December 2015 Trip Report, Part 5 - Med Harbor, American Waterfront and Port Discovery
DisneyDan  Tuesday, February 9, 2016 11:20:20 AM
Hello everyone,

In part one of this report I covered all the Disney Resort Hotels, the Disney Resort Line monorail, Ikspiari and other areas. In part two we explored World Bazaar and Adventureland. In part three we ventured into Westernland, Critter Country, Fantasyland, Toontown and Tomorrowland. In part four, I shared my photos from the Christmas parade, Dreamlights, Nightfall Glow and the fireworks. Now, in this part, we are going to explore three of the seven themed ports of Tokyo Disneyland's neighbouring park, Tokyo DisneySea.

The Tokyo DisneySea (TDS) entrance plaza is part of Mediterranean Harbor (Med Harbor), and where   [ Read More... ]

Hello everyone,

In part one of this report I covered all the Disney Resort Hotels, the Disney Resort Line monorail, Ikspiari and other areas. In part two we explored World Bazaar and Adventureland. In part three we ventured into Westernland, Critter Country, Fantasyland, Toontown and Tomorrowland. Now, in this part, I'm going to share with you some of my thoughts and photos from our viewings of the Christmas parade, Dreamlights, Nightfall Glow and the fireworks.

Tokyo Disneyland (TDL) had a brand new Christmas parade for 2015, titled Disney Christmas Stories. Although this was the first Christmas season we had spent at the park, I have to say, I was   [ Read More... ]

Tokyo Disney Resort December 2015 Trip Report, Part 2 - World Bazaar and Adventureland
DisneyDan  Thursday, January 28, 2016 10:22:38 AM
Hello everyone,

In part one of this Tokyo Disney Resort trip report I covered the Disney Resort Hotels, the Disney Resort Line monorail, Ikspiari, and Bon Voyage. In this second part I am going to share our adventures within the magical lands of World Bazaar and Adventureland, at Tokyo Disneyland park.

Arriving at Tokyo Disneyland is an interesting experience. It is both one of pure joy and excitement, and one of sheer terror. Tokyo Disney Resort (TDR) has a very different feel to it, and really makes a Disney fan's emotions and senses go into over drive! Whether you arrive at the park via the monorail from the on site hotels, bus, or walking from Maihama (or any one of the other multitude of ways of arriving), you will ultimately find yourself on the vast concourse in front of Tokyo Disneyland park (TDL). You'll find a number of amenities, including a guest relations booth, picnic area (park left), coffee shop (park right), the TDL monorail station, and towering above everything, the Tokyo Disneyland Hotel (see part one for details of the monorail system and hotels).

There is a large, curved, entry system that contains the ticket booths and turnstiles beyond, which you will nearly always find completely packed with people at least   [ Read More... ]
Tokyo Disney Resort December 2015 Trip Report, Part 1 - Hotels, Monorails and Beyond!
DisneyDan  Monday, January 25, 2016 4:00:44 PM
Hello everyone,

Last month Jon and I were in Tokyo Disney Resort for a week during their Christmas season. You can read about our Tokyo city experience, shopping, trains, our hotel near the resort and the airport, all in my Two Lost Boys trip report, which can be found here.

In this first Disney part of my reports, I am going to cover the Disney Resort Hotels, the monorail, and some of the other resort areas. Later this week I'll write the Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea parts.

Let's start with the first thing that you see when arriving at   [ Read More... ]
Hong Kong Disneyland Trip Report, November-December 2015 - Part One
DisneyDan  Tuesday, December 29, 2015 11:32:56 AM
Hello everyone,

At the end of November Jon and I travelled to Asia for a multi-stop trip to Tokyo and Hong Kong. We started in Hong Kong, flew to Japan, then flew back to Hong Kong before coming back home. In this part of my report on our travels, I will be sharing with you our adventures at Hong Kong Disneyland on both ends of the trip, which ended up stretching from the end of November, until the first week of December. I am actually going to break up this Hong Kong Disneyland report into several smaller parts, as it will be quite long. Here, in part one, I'll talk about the resort overall, resort hotels, and Main Street USA (including characters and entertainment on Main Street).

During the first part of our stay, we actually stayed in a hotel in the city, and used the opportunity to visit various places in the city. You can read my report for that, which I published this week, on my Two Lost Boys blog, here. On the second part of our stay in Hong Kong we stayed on site at Disney's Hollywood Hotel. Between the two ends of the trip, we ended up having a total of four days at the resort and in the park.

Rather than jump around, telling you everything in the random order in which we did them, I'm going to group different themes together to keep everything organised and less confused.

Walt Disney World Photo Trip Report, October 2015 - Part 1
DisneyDan  Sunday, October 18, 2015 12:41:52 PM
Hello everyone,

Last week Jon and I spent three days in Walt Disney World to experience Epcot's International Food and Wine Festival and Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party at the Magic Kingdom. In this first part of this report I will cover everything except Mickey's Not So Scary, as there are so many photos from that, it deserves a report of its own.

Let's start with Epcot, and the Food and Wine Festival.   [ Read More... ]
Disneyland Resort September 2015 - A Photo Trip Report
DisneyDan  Wednesday, September 30, 2015 2:46:45 PM
Hello everyone,

Last week Jon and I spent five days at the Happiest Place on Earth, Disneyland in California. This was our third trip to the Disneyland Resort this year, and our final one this year until next year.

We went to (finally) see the 60th anniversary celebrations and celebrate Halloween Time. It had been four years since we had been at Disneyland Resort for Halloween Time, and so we were excited to go back. Unfortunately, we already knew that Disneyland had made many cutbacks to their Halloween season this year, but despite that, we were still looking forward to seeing the things that were spared.

I'll organise this report into themed groups so that we don't jump around all over the place. Let's start with the Halloween Time offerings, and meeting Mickey and friends on Main Street USA in their Halloween costumes.   [ Read More... ]
Disneyland Paris, August 2015 Photo Trip Report
DisneyDan  Tuesday, September 8, 2015 3:44:21 PM
Hello everyone,

A couple of weeks ago, in August, Jon and I were back in Disneyland Paris for five days, after a hiatus from visiting for a while (not a hiatus from Disney though - if you follow our adventures you'll know we've been to the US parks numerous times this year already!). Despite being annual passholders and having visited Disneyland Paris six times last year, due to personal circumstances we hadn't been back since last September. So, following our extended break from the resort, we were glad to finally be able to get back there.

For the first time in all our trips to Disneyland Paris,   [ Read More... ]

DisneyDan  Friday, July 10, 2015 5:22:54 PM
Hello everyone,

Last week Jon and I were in Walt Disney World again, where we checked out all the Frozen Summer Fun offerings, and celebrated the 4th of July.

I'll start with Animal Kingdom, since we only went there for a few short hours to get some updated character photos. We stopped by to meet Daisy Duck, Tarzan, Pocahontas, Chip 'n' Dale, Baloo and King Louie.
