Where so excited, DisneySea can only be seen in Tokyo, Japan and only one of its concept, well enough of that I know by now you know that already. Let’s explore Disney Sea. Their concept is very different from the Disneyland which is more of the Disney characters, princes and princesses and I do feel that it cater to more of the younger kids. I would have probably enjoyed it if I was still a kid, the experience when I went to Disneyland is still amazing since I grew up watching Disney films and it has been a long dream of mine to visit Disneyland. 🙂 🙂 🙂
Going back Disney Sea’s concept is inspired by ocean tales and legends. There are seven themed area, Mediterranean Harbor, Mysterious Island, Mermaid Lagoon, Arabian Coast, Lost River Delta, Port Discovery and American Waterfront.
When we arrive, the place is already packed with tourist and take note almost 80 to 90% of it are Japanese. We went there on a weekday hoping that there are only few tourist but I was wrong I dunno but some of the visitors are I think still student, so I was wondering if these kids are on a field trip or it’s just a normal place to hangout with friends (taray!)
We explored DisneySea the soonest that we arrived, the place is packed and we only have a day to tour the whole place and make sure that we ride as much attraction that we can.
We first head to Mysterious Island and tried the 20,000 Leagues under the Sea. We’re disappointed that the Journey to the Center of the Earth is closed that time for maintenance. Darn! Our next stop is the Mermaid Lagoon, if you’re a Little Mermaid fan this one for you. The rides here are kid friendly, we did take a few photos but did not attempt to try any of the rides.
After walking for hours, we decided to have a quick break, we got a spot at the Arabian Coast. Did I mention that you can bring your own food? Just be discreet, 🙂 🙂 🙂 food inside the theme park is quite expensive especially those popcorn with souvenir containers, ugh! I want one but its out of the budget hahaha! Maybe on my next visit 😀 😀 😀
We did not ride during the day since there’s a long queue of people, but we went back after we have a round up of all the rides. There were only few people and the line is a lot faster and we got to ride the Jasmine’s Flying Carpets, Sinbad’s Storybook Voyage and The Magic Lamp Theater.
We move to the next attraction which is the Lost River Delta, where longer queue is ahead of us, good thing there are Single Riders, so if you want to make most of your time, rather than waiting in line, just take the Single Rider, the line is short and faster *wink*. We were able to ride the Raging Spirits and Indiana Jones Adventure: Temple of the Crystal Skull, I like these rides better because it’s more for adult and I have enjoyed it too. 😀 😀
In between rushing to get to the next attraction and rides, we stop, pause enjoy the view. Every corner is instagrammable 😀 😀
We stayed until closing and hoping to still get to try the rides in Port of Discovery the Aquatopia and Disney Electric Railway.
Some of the ride like the Tower of Terror and Toy Story Mania is a blockbuster hit for the tourist, most of these rides have closed already. Nevertheless, it was a fun day at DisneySea.
