Still my favorite theme park on the planet!


The truth has been spoken.

Sounds like the "Finding Nemo" makeover has worked out well for the old Stormrider attraction.

Love the additions on Aquatopia! I didn't realize they had done that. KT is dying to know, did you happen to catch any Ocean Sunfish in the Nemo ride, queue, preshow, anything? He's in the movie for about 5 seconds and she's holding out hope that he'll show up!

It was difficult to document inside as the cast try to keep photography and videography to a minimum but I do believe I remember seeing the silhouette of the ocean sunfish on the back wall (I'm not 100% but I believe I pointed it out when we were there). It isn't pictured here but there are silhouettes on both sides of the queue. I also vaguely remember seeing the animated silhouette of one in the preshow... I don't want to promise anything since it has been so many months since I saw it first hand but I do believe she'd be pleasantly surprised one way or another at least in the queue. I don't remember seeing anything like it during the ride though.

Good to know, thanks! He actually was assigned a name in the movie (Charlie BackandForth) so we were hopeful!

I love your seeking out, and finding those little 'extras' in Disney themeing, as only Disney can do it.

And Oriental Land Co. :mickey:

Great ongoing TR, Adam! Glad to see you had such a great time, there.

(And yes, my last visit there ~2013~ I lamented the extreme lack of original
Japan ToT merchandise, compared to the previous two visits there. Sad,
but at least, the little Shiriki Utundu on a chain is still selling. Got mine in 2011.)

These pictures are amazing!! I never even saw the Cape Cod section before, there's too much beauty to keep track of! I recently moved to Japan and live an hour away from TDR, but I haven't gone yet because I'm saving up for an annual passport. This trip report is torture. A few weeks ago I was riding the train home at night and I had to fight the urge to get off at Maihama Station when I heard the small world jingle.

^I’d tell you to get out to these parks as soon as you can! If you’re going to be living as close as you are, it makes sense to go as much as possible thanks to all of the different events throughout the year... Waiting just means less time to experience it all! ;)

The Cape Cod "hill" is one of my favourite go-to quiet spots in the park. I'm sure a lot of gp think that
the lighthouse is just theming, and not an actual spot you can go up to, sit down, and just relax for awhile.

I'll be here for at least 18 months, so I'll be able to make it to all the seasonal events and I definitely don't want to miss out on Easter, Tanabata Days, Pirates Summer, Halloween, or Christmas! Once I get the pass I'll probably be at the resort 2 or 3 times each month :lmao:

just tryin to be a responsible adult and get my finances in order before i splurge 93,000 yen (about $840), at the same time i totally get your argument and might squeeze in a quick visit beforehand ;)

I definitely plan to relax there, especially if it's a busy day!! I'll let you know when I visit!
