Going to Disneyland is something special for children, but in Japan young adults enjoy it too: girls dressed with Disney merchandise, couples on a romantic date, high school and university students... Still, I never went there when I was young and living in Tokyo, and then I went a few years ago with my children (one in Tokyo and once in Hong Kong) and I loved it (I didn't think I was going to like it, but I really did!). This time we went to Tokyo Disney Sea (Tokyo Disney is divided into Disney Sea and Disneyland), it was cold and not so crowded, but definitely fun!
I did all the scary rides (and screamed a lot), ate in a fake Venice restaurant, did not buy expensive merchandise (the tickets and food are expensive enough) but enjoyed looking at the shops, and most of all I realized that the kids are growing up and are becoming very selective about the rides they like to do (i.e. the scarier the better!)
One of the best things (after the tower of terror, that was soooo scary!!!!) was the show on water, with floats, dancers and performer, and of course Mikey and friends! I am not one for amusement parks, but I do like Disney!!
Have you been? Did you like it?
