Hello from the world's best theme park, and probably the most crowded. I arrived at TDS fresh off a 6 day Tokyo city trip and am now ready for 3 days of the best Disney has to offer. My MiraCosta check in this morning at 07:45 went smoothly and I was told to report back at 16:30 when my room would be ready. So off to TDS, which is just outside the hotel door, literally. Unfortunately today must have been a non-school day or something as it appears every teenager in Japan was at the park. All the Fastpasses were gone within 2 hours and the wait times for the big rides were between 2.5 and 3.5 hours by 09:30. Geez. fortunately this is my 2nd trip to the TDR and I am not really here for the rides, just the atmosphere and sheer awesomeness of the place. But if I had flown in from Debuque, Iowa on a once in a lifetime Tokyo Disney trip I would have been pretty upset. And I am a meticulous planner. The crowd calendars were consulted and the Japan holidays lists checked twice. I even chose a cold, miserable month like February to visit as to keep the Tokyo masses at bay. And all indicators were that the next few days would be "people rattle" days. On my trip last year it was mercifully empty and blissful. Not today. In 10 hours at the park I rode 4 rides. : ( But, tonight's forecast is for snow, (YES!) and it's a Thursday, which is a school day in most parts of the civilized world, so maybe I'll catch a break. But hey, how can I complain when I'm at the best resort in the world? BTW, the area I thought the Frozen themed land was being built on was decidedly not having anything built on it. (The area to the left of Indiana Jones) Thoughts?
Tomorrow morning I'm using my 15 minute early entry perk to ride Toy Story Mania. WooHoo!
