Finally! It’s a ‘finally’ for everything – for the long awaited trip, for the boyfriend whom I haven’t seen in 8 long months, for my favourite authentic ramen and for my first time in Disneyland! Before we start, a round of applause for the great boyfie for planning this whole trip so everything was a surprise to me! Clap clap clap woohoo!!!
Now a selfie before we board the limousine shuttle bus to Disneyland! Forgive my eye bags hehe. Haven’t got much sleep during my 12 hours trip.
Before we kickstart our day, we kept our luggages at the coin-operated lockers near Disneyland entrance. Then the adventure started.
Some Disneyland tips:
I was really excited when we scanned our online-bought tickets at the park entrance. I was so happy to see the Disney castle which made Disneyland looked almost magical! However that’s not the first spot we rushed to. Instead, Dennis dragged me to the Monsters Inc’s Fast Pass counter. This Fast Pass is a gem. Be sure to grab them and read the fine prints at the bottom for the time for your next Fast Pass. Our time slot was 2.15 pm so we headed to Pooh’s Hunny Hunt at Fantasyland! He has done all his research and that’s one of the highlight ride with a relatively longer waiting time. It wasn’t too bad when we were there, about a 40 minutes wait.
I had a cute chicky custard cream bun for breakfast while waiting hehe.
Those are XL size story book pages on Pooh on his Hunny hunt trip; and our ride in the Hunny jar!
Verdict: Pooh’s Hunny Hunt 7/10 – Not your ordinary boring child’s ride
This ride was really exciting as you can’t see any trails and it looked as though all the Hunny jars were simply round and about in a very vibrantly coloured Pooh’s world. However as I cannot understand Japanese, I have no idea what the ride was about! The only thing I understood was the owl screaming ‘help!’ in Japanese!
Next ride, Star Tours: The Adventures Continue at Tomorrowland
Verdict: Star Tours 6/10 – Just what you’d expect for a 3D ride.
This was quite a bumpy ride for a room-typed 3D motion ride. And same problem again, I don’t understand Japaneeeeese so I don’t really know what was happening …
At the exit we grabbed some of those cute three-eyed aliens mochi sweets.
OOOOOOH. AAAAAAAAAAAAHHH. You have saved our lives. We are eternally grateful.
And then THE CASTLE!
And the guard duck at the castle
Then it’s time for lunch! We walked all the way to Lucky Nugget Cafe at the Westernland for their smoked turkey legs and churros. We sat at a nice place by the lake where the Mark Twain Riverboat passed by.
That’s our lunch set with fried chicken, smoked turkey leg and Mickey churros. Look at those grapes…those heavenly grapes so full of juice and burst when you bite into them ooooh the best grapes everrrr!
Purposely posing behind his favourite Mickey churros
Verdict: Smoked turkey leg 1/10 – one word: Cannibalism
Now this smoked turkey leg is the most ‘cannibalism’ thing I have seen. It tasted ‘cannibalism’ and you look like a cannibal when you are biting into it. Now, look at me.
That’s chicken vs turkey. Chickenism vs cannibalism.
Another picture of my castle while strolling in Westernland, and the summer special ‘Garyo Gunbu’ dance parade.
Next ride, Space Mountain at Tomorrowland
Verdict: Space Mountain 7/10 – dizzy
This is an indoor high speed roller coaster ride with no dips. I got a lil’ bit dizzy zooming through the tunnel with starry starry lights…
Dennis found his favourite alien’s headband but it was too small for his big head LOL; and I found my favourite bling bling Minnie headband but I was too stingy to buy it hehee
Now that big hat suits you! LOL!
Next ride, Monsters Inc. Ride & Go Seek
Verdict: Monsters Inc. Ride & Go seek 6.5/10. Interactive and fun.
This ride is interactive as you are given a torch to shine on the monsters. It is quite cute but not much adrenaline.
Now what’s better than an ice cream under the hot sun? We had the Mickey tiramisu ice cream sandwich!
We also watched a small part of daytime parade ‘Happiness Is Here’. I was anxious to see if my Disney princesses are ang mohs (Caucasians) because it would shatter my fantasy a little to see them as Asians hehe (except for Mulan). Yayyy yes they are and they are b-e-a-u-tiful~
Then it’s time to enter my favourite castle!
The hallways and decorations based on Cinderella’s story. hoooooooo~~~ glass slipperrrrr~~~
A japanese guy laughed at me a little at this 😛
OOO secret door!
Next up, It’s a Small World
Verdict: It’s a Small World 6/10. Cute boat ride.
Then we went for the Haunted Mansion ride. One thing we noticed was the staffs here were noticeably less ‘friendly’ and didn’t smile much. Probably to give you that eeeerie feeling. The ride wasn’t really scary but one really interesting thing was at the end of the ride you will end up having 3 person in your cart rather than your initial ‘futari’. 😉
Verdict: Haunted Mansion 6/10
Finally the highlight of the park – The Electrical Parade Dreamlights! We found a good spot next to the allocated area for an unknown production crew filming some show there that night. After waiting for over an hour the parade finally started! Let’s hit it!
Simply Amazing~ Then it’s farewell time …
We headed to Hotel MyStays Shin-Urayasu for the night. It was quite a long walk from the station with two luggages! We were really exhausted when we got there but we were greeted by friendly staffs who spoke good English who checked us in rather quickly. Our room was small but very clean, comfortable and nicely furnished.
We had instant noodles that night for supper – Kado-men and CHICKY-men! Chicky-men has a cube shaped thing that disperse into egg after cooking! Pretty cool but the broth didn’t taste that nice to me (Dennis liked it though). I prefer the Kado-men (whatever that means hehe)! We bought some canned drinks from the hotel’s vending machine and realised for the first time peach-flavoured drink is super popular here. It tasted so refreshing I’m missing it so much now. We also had some unknown bread thing hahaha please tell me what they were if you knew.
Time for bed! Goodnight!
