Tokyo Disneyland: The Happiest Place on Earth

Tokyo Disneyland

OHAIYOU! It has been two weeks since we got back from our Japan trip and we are still suffering the post-holiday blues! Before we share more about our Japan itinerary as highly requested already by a number of readers, we will first be doing a series of short posts on certain places of interests. Of course, we will kick things off by sharing our trip to Tokyo Disneyland, the Happiest Place on Earth! This was my third visit, misterchewy’s second and Little misschewy’s first!

Little misschewy’s birthday was on a Friday but after much deliberation, we decided to go to Disneyland a day earlier to avoid the weekend crowd. A few weeks before, we bought our tickets via Tokyo Disneyland’s website, which in our opinion, is a highly recommended move if you want to get into the theme park as swiftly as possible! WHEEE! WE ARE READY! 😀

We went straight for the Castle Carrousel ride at Fantasyland!

Spinning teacups and saucers at Alice’s Tea Party!

Fly on a pirate ship to Never Land at Peter Pan’s Flight!

P3170223

This is nice but be prepared to queue at least an hour!

P3170229

Dumbo the Flying Elephant!

P3170230

Somehow, I was quite amused by the sight of all these parked strollers. Haha.

Little misshewy actually ran towards the Castle Carrousel and gave us a cheeky smile, indicating that she wanted to go on the ride again.

We managed to catch the colorful Daytime Parade, “Happiness is Here”!

P3170252

This colorful parade filled with fun will make your heart thrill with happiness. Goofy leads the parade followed by a float designed with a huge Mickey Mouse toy. And there’s a float that expresses the vibrant, lovely world of the Disney princesses and fairies, and lots more. The parade presents all kinds of happiness for you to experience.

After all the excitement, we took a short break by stopping at one of the restaurants at Disneyland for lunch. As expected, the food was overpriced and tasted mediocre. But we really needed to rest our legs plus the little one was sleeping in the Tula.

Pooh’s Hunny Hunt at Toon Town!

P3170309

HAHAHA Little misschewy was frightened by the weird lightings and loud noises from the honey shooting game.

P3170335

I think Little misschewy adores Donald Duck as much as I do! She was shouting “Nonald Nuck! Nonald Nuck!” but it was a pity they stopped allowing people to queue for photos with Donald 🙁

P3170343

We saw many kids and teenage schoolgirls with popcorn buckets slung around their necks and couldn’t resist getting one for Little misschewy as well. Actually, there are plenty of other designs but we were too lazy to scout for them. This is one of the popular designs featuring characters from Frozen.

P3170351

We got the normal Caramel flavoured popcorn but if you are popcorn connoisseur like one of our neighbours, you can also try the other flavours such as Salt, Curry, Chocolate, Honey, Strawberry and Soy Sauce & Butter! You can’t get all flavours at one location, so check the map!

This girl really very happy leh!

P3170377

We managed to get one miserable Fast Pass at Tomorrowland and we used it for Monsters, Inc. Ride & Go Seek!

P3170359

P3170363

P3170360

It was quite a run ride and our first time on it!

P3170378

After Little misschewy’s diaper change and milk feed at the Baby Center, we headed to one of the shops and these caught my attention!

P3170380

If you refer to the photo of our lunch earlier, you will notice that this is a mini replica of our pork katsu bun!

P3170381

I bought the miniature Donald Duck popcorn bucket but now I kinda regret not getting the pork katsu bun and Mickey pancake!

P3170388

I think it was about 7pm when we sat and joined the crowd for the Nighttime Parade, “Tokyo Disneyland Electrical Parade Dreamlights”.

P3170395

The Disney stars are literally sparkling in this nighttime parade of lights and music. With Mickey and his pals, including characters from Aladdin, Toy Story and other Disney films, appearing on colorful floats, nighttime in the Park is even more fantasy-filled.

After the intriguing Electrical Parade, we rushed off to It’s A Small World at Fantasyland. As children of the world sing, enjoy the “happiest cruise that ever sailed”. This is one of my favourite rides in Tokyo Disneyland and I love to experience this all over again each time I visit the park.

Fireworks were cancelled so we decided to leave as it had been a long and fruitful day for us!

  1. Hi Charlene can I ask how did u manage to carry your luggage via taking the Shinkansen as there isn’t much space for large luggages..any advice?

    • There is an area near the train doors for you to place your luggage. It’s limited to about 6 luggages (bottom rack) though!

  2. This looks like such an amazing Disneyland! I haven’t been to any before, so I’m saving my first time going for the one in Tokyo because it’s by far the cutest! Thanks so much for all of the photos 😀 this is making really excited for the time I visit Japan!

    • We had also been to Disneyland in Hong Kong and Paris but Japan is the best! You will be amazed by how much the Japanese are ‘into’ Disneyland characters!

  3. Hi, Iove your blog! may i know who took your family photos? my husband, baby, and i will be going to Tokyo Disneyland next month, just us 3. I’m afraid we might not get a good family picture and will just settle with selfie shots. Any tips? thanks!

    • Hello! We got either one of the crew members or whoever was standing behind us in the queue to help us with the photos! I totally understand where you are coming from because I often worry about that too! Also, there will be crew with DSLRs at various photo stops and you can purchase the photos too! 🙂
