Great report! The quality of the park on its own makes Tokyo Disneyland the best Disney park (in my opinion), but adding in the polite and orderly crowd really brings it to another level. If only California had the same thing.

When I saw you got fast passes for monsters Inc I was so confused. I was thinking of the laugh factory counterpart in Florida. All in Japanese. What fun would that be for all of you? lol. Then it all made sense. That ride sounds neat (especially since there are no screens!)

Anyway, keep up the AMAZING reports. Love it.

I've gone pantless!

The Monsters Inc. ride at Tokyo Disneyland is great (as is the Winnie the Pooh ride). They were estimating close to 70,000 guests in the park that day, but we got a lot done before noon.

Thanks for running around and getting the Fast Passes, Robb!

I miss Tokyo Disneyland so much. To me it combined the best parts of the original Disneyland and WDW's Magic Kingdom.
If it had a peoplemover... it would perhaps be perfect! :lmao:

Wow that's truly insane! I've always thought that these rides didin't seem that exciting as most of them span a lot during testing and initial "empty trains" POVs but then when they opened and ran with actual riders the spinning looked a lot more controlled and on most/many POVs the riders would not complete one single full spin. But this one is totally the opposite!
I wonder if it was a choice of the park to have this "uncontrolled" level of spinning.

As to the rest, great reports (as usual) and truly amazing to see not only this level of efficiency but also the behaviour and attitude of the guests. Two things I'd like to see more of when I visit parks.
The Mr Freeze coasters should have speakers playing the sentence: "Let's kick some ice!" right before each launch

What does one say after riding a Batman clone?
The G force is strong with this one.

You can see on some of the shots that they appear to have more (though I haven't compared 1:1) of the "flippy fins" along the track that force rotations than the other free spins in the US. It also seems like there is a lot less friction on the spins too, so with both of those things combined... damn. Really wish we had one like that here.

This one definitely spun more than the US versions that we've done! I barely made it through!
