How fast time flies. That picture above is of me performing with my band Moochie Mac & Superfriends. Says a lot, doesn’t it? You see, I have two things in life that I am passionate about. Music and Disney. Nothing beats the feeling of performing on stage or when I walk through those turnstiles at a Disney Theme Park gate. For me, it’s the ultimate high.
I’ve been blessed with an amazing childhood and family. Family trips were taken annually and wherever we went, Mum and Dad always made sure that Disney was in the cards. From, East to West, Tokyo to Orlando. I am lucky enough to say today, that I have been to all Disney Theme Parks in the world. All of them were magical for me. Great memories that I will always cherish.
One Disney Park in particular, has always been that extra special place for me. The day I walked through the turnstiles and heard the word Yokoso, saw the Aquasphere and looked beyond it to see Mount Prometheus, I was blown away. That was it for me. I immediately fell in love with this park. Tokyo Disneysea to me, is the ultimate Disney Park. Tokyo Disney Resort is my Mecca. The service is impeccable, the attractions are top notched and the resort is just so damn clean!!!
Everytime I travel to Japan, I have to head back to TDR. Everytime my friends travel with me to Japan, I will drag them along. I’ve been on dates there, got engaged in Tokyo Disneyland and am now a proud Disney dad. There’s only one word that I can use to describe TDR. That word is magic.
That being said, Tokyo Disney Resort is just like any other Disney Resort. If you don’t have a plan, there is a high chance that you might walk away with a negative impression of it. I’ve heard a lot of bad reviews about the resort too. “The food was awful.” “The ride had too long of a queue.” “It was too crowded.” “It’s soooooooo expensive.”
To those reviews and complaints, I have something to say. You are absolutely right!!! Tokyo Disney Resort is expensive. Some of the food is awful. It will be really crowded at times and queues can go up to 180 minutes long, ahem ahem, Pooh’s Hunny Hunt. That’s why anyone that travels to Tokyo Disney Resort, especially first timers, have to have a basic plan before they enter the parks. That’s what I will try to offer in this blog.
