When my train got back, I decided to say something in Spanish back to the CMs in the load station (thanks, have a nice day, or something like that), and, of course, they looked at me as if I were speaking Martian. Good times.
@24.144... We visited in early July, right before the summer "busy season" begins (when most Japanese schools go on break). For shoulder season, it was comparable to the U.S. parks. That said, some Fastpasses and show tickets were still hard to come by (something I wrote about for TPI: http://www.themeparkinsider.com/flume/201308/3624/)
@Robert - Funny stuff. That reminds me of when we were in line for Raging Spirits. A group of Japanese teenagers in front of us were repeatedly using "Adios" as a greeting for anyone they saw and laughing themselves silly.
Now I know they speak Spanish in the Indy ride and in that surrounding area in DisneySea. Who knew?! As someone who speaks fluent Spanish, it sure is going to be crazy to hear Spanish in a Disney theme park in Japan!
on another note, i can speak cantonese so it was nice to be able to understand and experience hk disneyland in cantonese.
i can't wait for shanghai disney. too bad i can't speak/understand mandarin. that should be an interesting theme park visit.
