Hello! It has been a long week for us and I’m spending my Friday night updating this space on our trip to Tokyo DisneySea, which wasn’t in our itinerary in the first place. We only decided to go to DisneySea the night before, after we tucked Little misschewy in bed. It all started like this..

Me: Where are we going tomorrow ah?
Him: Oh. Going to Shinjuku, Shibuya, and Harajuku..
Me: Go there do what?
Him: Shop lor.
Me: Huh? Shop only? You mean whole day go shopping? AIYO DON’T WANT LAH!
Him: …
Me: Wah lao you think Chanelle will enjoy meh. Eh why don’t we go DisneySea!!

I’m so glad that misterchewy was really spontaneous and agreed to my crazy proposal. It was crazy because without any ticket reservations, it meant that we had to wake up really early to beat the crowd. Purchasing our tickets online wasn’t an option because it is mandatory for visitors to print their tickets before entering the theme park. Guess what. We woke up at 4.30am Singapore time but it was worth it because we didn’t have to queue to get our tickets! The sky was gloomy though and shortly after we entered the park, it started to drizzle. We didn’t bring our umbrella along, so we ‘invested’ in these Mickey and Minnie headgear! 😛 The hubs had been to DisneySea before, but not for me!

The drizzle got heavier, and we started to wonder if we had picked the wrong day to go to DisneySea. People around us were all smiles though, and we felt a little more optimistic!

I was feeling a little bummed that we didn’t get the chance to take photos with the Disney characters at Disneyland, which we visited two days before our trip to DisneySea. Not even a single one! 🙁 This time, I was determined to have our photos taken with any of the characters available and the first thing we did was to head to Lost River Delta where the Mickey & Friends’ Greeting Trails were! Little misschewy woke up at this point and protested from being constrained under the hood of our Tula which was supposed to shelter her from the drizzle. A kind family who was queuing behind us gave us their spare umbrella!

At the end of these trails through the Lost River Delta jungle, you’ll find one of the Disney friends. Mickey and his pals are studying the ruins of an ancient civilization or researching the jungle plants and insects. Along the trails are fun activities that will make you feel like an explorer, too!

After what seemed like eternity, we finally got to meet and greet Mickey Mouse! Wheeee!

I was surprised to learn that the Disney characters actually station themselves at a particular place the entire day! This is unlike Disneyland where the mascots would suddenly appear out of nowhere and everyone could be seen chasing after them.

Since it was STILL raining, we sought shelter at one of the restaurants and ordered something to share even though we weren’t really hungry.

Aiyoooo why so happy! 😀

Yay! The rain finally stopped and we found ourselves at Mermaid Lagoon!

This is Triton’s Kingdom, situated within Mermaid Lagoon. It’s an indoor facility and a pretty cool one! Really gives you that ‘under the sea’ feeling!

I was drawn to The Sleepy Whale Shoppe in Triton’s Kingdom because you can have your caricature done at a fee! Prices listed were for one and two pax. We tried asking but they were not able to accommodate three. Also, they only do side profiles.

The caricature artist took only about 5 minutes and this lovely souvenir was ours to keep!

Shortly after we stepped foot into American Waterfront, it started to drizzle again.

Apart from Mermaid Lagoon, I really liked Arabian Coast for its beautiful yet mysterious architecture.

The Caravan Carousel at Arabian Coast has two levels but Little misschewy was contented as long as she could ride on any of the camels. Lol.

Many people were queuing to have a go at Abu’s Bazaar, which was like a little carnival area, and we joined in as well. Nobody leaves empty-handed! For ¥500 (~S$6), you get to try your luck at winning a giant stuffed toy. Consolation pin prizes were given out for trying, so nobody leaves empty-handed.

P3190775

It took us a few tries and misterchewy won a giant Dale for Little misschewy. She was really jubilant over a stuffed toy whose face is bigger than hers. LOL.

Jasmine’s Flying Carpets!

At Mysterious Island, we highly recommend the attraction, 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea where you get to board a ‘submarine’ and explore the fantastic undersea world.

Before leaving Disneysea, we went for a final round of queuing at Lost River Delta, where we found Donald Duck dressed in colourful Latin American apparel! Mission accomplished and we were very happy!
