Had we planned earlier, we could’ve moved to a place closer to Maihama since we had to take this long route twice for two consecutive days. But no biggie because bento 😀 I want to buy every bento there is but I can’t 😦
Saw this cutie octopus bowl at Gindaco somewhere in Tokyo station so… I bought it.
Although it was stained with mayonnaise and tartar everywhere T_T it’s too cute!!
It was a bowl of delicious lies. Fake tako (hotdog). Fake takoyaki (delicious potatoes). I swear both of us were fooled into thinking they were takoyaki!!!!! Very delicious soboro don nonetheless 😀
Continued our journey to Disneyland after yummy breakfast of deceit lol…
We didn’t have to take a monorail to Disneyland but the walk was so pleasant.
The sky was gloomy and I think that contributed to a theme park that was surprisingly not crowded 😀
Why am I still the only person in colour??
Upon entering, some excited caucasian beamed and said “sumimasen!!” and we both just huh??? LOL he thought it was “hello” and Yuxuan (using new found knowledge) told him “sumimasen” means “excuse me” HAHAHAHA 😀
First thing we saw was a queue to Mickey! In fact, the whole ground was sprinkled with mascots 😀
Flowers everywhere 🙂
Took a picture with Fairy Godmother because she had no queue at all (poor thing) but of course!! Her face is immensely creepy T__T Still really funny Yuxuan cried (out of happiness) when she hugged her OMG hahahaha 😀
Distracted by Tweedledum/Tweedledee… Don’t know how I managed to capture a shot with all faces looking totally high??
Who could care about the little pigs when there’s a little Donald Duck soooooo cute!!!!!
He waddled like a duck too! Not sure if it’s normal diaper baby walk or he’s really good at cosplay at such a young age 🙂
Why can kids get away with lying on the ground yet when I do it people ask me “hobo ah?”
Daisy didn’t give a shit about us T____T I really should have lied about my birthday, get a sticker and get special treatment 😦
Disney marketing game strong.
The day just started and this princess already bought something? My childhood pales looking at the lives of the many kids here!!
(photo stolen from Yuxuan)
Was gonna pass my camera to Yuxuan but her mother offered instead. Yuxuan took this too!
She also knows she’s a princess. They don’t cosplay. They completely transform. Like that baby Donald.
Donald!!!!!!!!!!!! I like Donald Duck but turns out he doesn’t like me 😦 No photos for me 😦
(picture stolen from Yuxuan)
Yuxuan was chasing him as he walked away and he looked into her camera!!!! I happened to photobombed her shot so… I had a picture with Donald! 🙂 *delusional*
Pluto! He was about to walk away so we chased after him… He was like hi and all that then he got distracted by a baby in a stroller and ran away!!!! 😦
But I finally got a picture with him lol. The cons of going to Disneyland when you are no longer a child by age 😦
Beautiful mosaic walls retelling the story of Cinderella 🙂
I thought she ran DOWN the stairs though…
Entered this dazzling glass shop called The Glass Slipper, meant for filthy rich people to flaunt their wealth I think.
Was scorning at the crazy price of this castle model and a tourist heard me and LOLed. It’s crazy.
They had raincoats on because of the wet weather LOL!
The song was really nice too hahaha 😀
Marie is too cute!
Minnie waved AT me (I don’t care if there’s a kid behind me ok… it’s me she’s waving to) 😀 😀 😀
Thought of Julie Andrew’s carousel horse Jingles at the other Disneyland. I love Julie Andrews 🙂
I tried to take a mirror selfie but it was unsuccessful.
I LOVE the décor of the Queen of Hearts Banquet Hall, both inside and out!
The facade of It’s A Small World is so cute!
Walked past it again later just in time for the 15-minute interval 😀
Wanted to take a video but I was too slow and naaahhhhhhh….
Gadget’s Go Coaster was surprisingly fun despite being made for kids
Impressive pulley décor that people probably pay no heed.
Intrigued by this little Goofy spinning popcorns 🙂 It’s all the little details that kill me ^__^
Disney’s topiary really are the top 😀
Space Mountain was really fun!! It’s super fast and seems to go on for very long. The lighting was cool but after a while I died X__X
Grand Circuit Raceway I found super fun but Yuxuan disliked it…
I think it’s because it’s my first time behind the wheel (albeit fake V___V) after 1 year 2 months 3 days since getting my licence -____-
This was my second ride where Yuxuan became a parent (like Amanda’s father lol) who takes photos for me hahaha 😀
Reckless driver lol.
Haunted Mansion is one of my favourites 😀 We all know I’m a pussy at horror stuff and I was shitting bricks getting into the buggy. Turns out it was a joy ride with the most spectacular visuals nowhere near creepy! The buggy goes slowly and rotates you to the appropriate scene of focus. Holography everywhere!!!!!!! 😀
My happiness doesn’t end when the ride does because it was even funnier at the exit!!!!!!
The funniest headstones EVER. We were the only ones laughing, possibly because the bulk of visitors are Japanese?
Ray N Carnation – Reincarnation hahaha
Rustin Peese – Rest in peace hahahaha
Sue Pernatural – Supernatural hahahahaha
I. L. Beback – I’ll be back HAHAHAHAHAHAHA
M. T. Tomb – Empty tomb HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA I had a great laugh standing there regardless of all the stares 😀
(photo stolen from Yuxuan)
6 Goofys. I don’t know how a group of friends can agree to buying a bright orange sweater and bright green beanie? Do they wear them only in Disney or…? Anyway, while I’m obsessed with bindis, the Japanese are sticking stickers on their faces and sometimes gems and rhinestones all over their faces haphazardly. I need to live in Japan???
Lunch at Pan Galactic Pizza Port!
Got a chicken? mushroom? tomato? calzone. It tasted ok…
No idea what these were but I bought them for the container #marketingbait. Yummy little mochis? with vanilla, chocolate and strawberry fillings.
I can’t remember if we took Splash Mountain (I have a vague impression we did).
Confused with Big Thunder Mountain where Yuxuan lost her week-old iPhone 6.
Anyway, after understanding how the lockers were not really useful as you have to bring all your belongings on board rides, I brought a tote bag to carry all my stuff on top of my super useful mackintosh. Yuxuan just put her phone in her pocket and her phone flew out mid-ride?
TIP: Don’t rent lockers if you don’t have to
Rode Beaver Brothers Explorer Canoes because I really wanted to boat. Please don’t. Arms would ache just trying to turn out -____-
Pirates of the Caribbean… great series, terrible ride. The most boring ride going at the slowest pace forcing us to admire the workmanship of the puppets… And smelled like chlorine -___-
By now you should also realise that my ride sequence is all jumbled up because we browsed in orderly fashion but the Fast Passes are a mess.
Woody! Bastard kept turning the other way avoiding my direction as I followed him about 300° before he saw me -____-
And finally accepted my presence 😀
(photo stolen from Yuxuan)
Jessie was busy signing some kid’s autograph book and Yuxuan tried to stealth a selfie (with success) but she turned around and gestured us to wait (but she never did bother about us after that). See guys, all you parents please bring your children to Disney if you can because when you’re not a little baby you are nothing to them!!!!
Really wanted to ride the Mark Twain Riverboat but we gave it a miss as we were pressed for time…
We went to the visitor lounge area to report her phone loss and then to where she believed she lost her phone. Then she waited there in the ultra cold wind while they looked for it.
I went to eat at Queen of Hearts Banquet Hall. It was so bold of us to just part ways with literally zero form of communications (she had no phone and the pocket wifi was in the locker) but we reunited when I paid for my food.
Ordered more things than I could eat and Yuxuan refused to share!!!!!!!!!!!!
Roasted chicken! Not bad 🙂
At the end of the line the server asked if I wanted rice or bread. She didn’t say it like it was an optional thing. So I was like uhhh bread. -____- I wished I didn’t uhhh bread.
When I saw this, I burst out laughing (mind you, I was alone in the queue) and decided to get it since it wasn’t that big nor expensive. About 5″ diameter for like $13 or so, so why not!!! It looked and tasted super fresh too!!!!! It was really delicious albeit too creamy to solo without discarding cream (Yuxuan wouldn’t even take ONE bite for me).
“Happy Unbirthday” is pretty much the best phrase yet. I believe in celebrating EVERY day and with cake (although I don’t practise this yet (I will someday)) because every day is important, and Happy Unbirthday is just about the best excuse to eat cake on a day not your birthday!!! I love it 😀
Hurried to get a spot for “Once Upon A Time“, the castle projection 😀
We found a really good spot, everyone was seated and the view was unobstructed except for a stupid umbrella.
Then suddenly, there was an announcement that it would be cancelled due to the weather T________T
SERIOUSLY????????? Nobody gives a shit about the wet floor!! Then we left T____T
Yuxuan got a coffee and an announcement came again. It was a glimmer of hope in all the sorrow of the gloomy doomy night. The show would resume in 15 minutes if the weather improves!!!!!!!!!
Ran back right quick and everyone was standing T___T
!!!!!!!! Ganchiong cannot focus -__-
So I turned to using my phone instead. What a terrible idea to get all the grains .___. (also because my memory card of both cameras were on the brink of full capacity).
I was going to film the whole thing and somewhere around the Alice in Wonderland part, my camera beeped because it had no more memory T___T So I deleted the great clip I sacrificed my arm for (I held the thing up for a good 10 minutes at least) to make space for the fireworks.
You’re welcome 🙂 Also thought the Beast scene was cool with all the lightning and I got lucky with some pyrotechnics although it wasn’t the end yet.
Everyone promptly exited the compound when it’s shut off. Amazingly orderly and quietly too.
How do people exit Disneyland T___T How do people leave this magical land of magic T___T
You can’t quite see me but… ❅❅❅ LET IT GO ❅ LET IT GO ❅❅❅
Yes, I like Elsa. Because she’s hella cool. I also like Rapunzel but… Elsa speaks Hokkien and it’s the best thing ever. Behold the best parody of that overplayed sickening song!!!!!!!!!!!!
I completely lost it after the part where she stepped on the ground and the snowflake appeared and laughed until I teared. Elsa ki chu show I died again. I love this so much.
Anyway, I think I See The Light from Tangled is an even better song that should have been overplayed on radio instead.
I wrote and sent a postcard to myself from Disneyland too!! 😀
Received both a few days after my return ^_______^
I hope everyone goes to Disneyland/DisneySea and send me postcards just because I get a kick out of it and appreciate snail mail. I can dream on.
Ok. Then we went back and I should think Yuxuan got supper and I didn’t because she ate nothing and I ate enough for 3. There’s one more post left!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
