Finally, Bob got a break from work, and satisfying the kid in me, he consented to spend Thursday - our last day in Japan - together at DisneySea! I was so worried about sweltering heat and humidity, long lines, and crazy crowds that I almost had second thoughts. Thankfully, it ended up being an intermittent rainy day (with some pretty intense downfalls a couple of times) which scared away many visitors and cooled the temperatures substantially. What a blessing for us! I don't think we waited in a line for more than 15-minutes and we were able to ride and see nearly everything that we wished. Best Disney day ever!
What makes this unique Disney Park so amazing is it's picturesque quality! At every angle, from every inch of the park was another breathtaking scene. I guess it caters to Asian photographers and bloggers like me. There are not a lot of "thrill" rides, but the realistic animatronics and elaborate decor create some pretty amazing stages for entertainment and adventure. The "Tower of Terror" (my personal favorite - and different from other Disney Towers), Indiana Jones and a few others did create a brief adrenaline rush. And the shows were fantastic! But I have to mention one other unique feature of this park that we really enjoyed seeing - the Asians themselves! They are Disney fanatics, and almost all (male and female of every age) come to the park decked out in matching licensed apparel, bows, hats,snack packs and bags. They are horribly afraid of fast rides and are unabashedly bold in their childlike enthusiasm for anything "cute". Then there are the selfie photo sticks and requests for snapshots . . . and did I mention the weird snacks (try peanut butter squid for example)? You've just gotta love 'em!
