That's right! TPR is back in Japan because this country is awesome and we can't get enough of it! We will be live tweeting and posting to our Instagram Story during our visit to be sure to check there for up to date posts!

Here's some of the updates we've posted so far!

Day One - Arrival and Tokyo Disneyland!

First of all, this....
Image
WOW! I did it! Three different Disney Parks on three different continents in three days! lol (technically less but time zones weren’t in my favor!) Getting invited to the Paris Disney FanDaze event was most certainly a nice last minute surprise, and it allowed me to be able to do this!

Image
I just got back from Paris less than 12 hours ago and we are already off on our next adventure! Japan, here we come!!!

Image
One nice benefit of having loyalty status with Delta?

Image
A bowl of Cheerios for breakfast!!! (Seriously, LOVE this!!!)

Image
Am I the only one who can’t see a bowl of blueberries without thinking about Judy Hopps and her family’s farm?

Image
Almost to Japan! Only four hours left in the flight! Who thinks we should go straight to Tokyo Disneyland once we land?

Image
Image
Just walked off the plane in Japan and these were the first two signs we saw!

Image
Just an example of the amazing Japanese efficiency... The plane landed at 2pm and we’re already on the bus to the hotel at 2:30. That includes going through Immigration, getting baggage, pee stop, through customs, buying bus tickets, boarding bus... Oh Japan!

Image
Image
Image
Once we’ve seen our first Taiko no Tatsujin machine we know we are officially in Japan! :b :br

Image
Here’s the Tokyo subway map. It’s not as difficult as it looks!

Image
Have Suica card will travel!

I'm about to get on a train...I wonder where I'm going?


And this is why the Japanese will always kick A$$ in video games!!!


Image
I am so happy right now!!! :br :lmao: :lol:

Watch below to see the replay of our "Tokyo Disneyland Dream Lights" parade footage!


ImageImage
Love the “Happy as a rainbow!” theme!!!

Image
Image
I should also point out that I only came into the park for the last four hours of the evening and was only charged the equivalent of about $40 for the “after 6 passport!” What an amazing deal

Image
I love that 30 minutes after walking into the park I’ve already ran into one of our Japanese TPR friends!

Image
Image
I am not here for the rides...

Image
...I’m here for the popcorn!!!

Image
Image
OMG! These two shirts are amazing! I love the Oswald one!!! Which one would you buy?

Image
I’ve always though it was cool that Tokyo Disneyland has Roger Rabbit’s Car Toon Spin! Many people don’t realize it’s here and is always a nice surprise! This is an attraction I wish had made it to more parks.

Image
Image
Normally we start our day at Tokyo Disneyland with these INCREDIBLE Mickey Mouse waffles...

Image
...but since I’m only here in the evening, I’ll end my day with one! This is a MUST HAVE food here!

The projection show in World Bazaar for the 35th Celebration is just magical!


Image
35th Celebration Chip n Dale anyone? They are soooo cute!

Image
Image
These gift boxes are some of the most popular merchandise at Tokyo Disneyland! That “Chocolate Crunch” seriously flies off the shelf!!! If you stand here 15 minutes you will watch them re-stock the entire shelf at least once!

Image
Just ran into two more Japanese TPR fans! Great seeing you guys!

Image
Image
Got to ride Pooh’s Hunny Hunt twice tonight right at park closing! This is still one of the most impressive Disney rides! I wonder if the locals still love it or if it is not as special for them anymore? I think it’s amazing!!!

Image
Image
Image
Image
ear America - can we please have shelves and shelves full of Baymax merchandise, too? Thank you!

Image
So there is this weird "fruit theme" going on with some of the Tokyo Disneyland merchandise right now. At first I was all "This is really odd" but then as I kept seeing more of it, I kinda like it! What do you think?

We had a great first day in Japan! Remember to keep up to date with our trip via our Twitter and Instagram story!

Now, POST YOUR COMMENTS!!!! After all, we took the time to write this report, the least you can do is post something nice about it! :P

Awesome! I seriously and desperately need to get to Japan.

Had friends bring us back the Rainbow Happiness shirts from their visit late last year. I love them.

Looking forward to following along.

yay!

looks like y'all are having an amazing time.

I'm old, and don't twitter, so been following along via the link on TPR front page, but it has been a little frustrating that I couldn't comment, since no twitter account :). . now I can!


LOL.. I ended up last night in a youTube hole watching vids about "Squishies". . I TOTALLY understand why KidTums is hooked, I wish I could smell that store, I'll bet it was incredible!

great pics. . keep em coming!

(and I absolutely love that Oswald B&W shirt, and would buy it on the spot)

Ooooo, this is way too much Tokyo Disney for my eyes! :smile:
Great way to spend your arrival evening too, Robb, Elissa and Kristen!

Looking forward to more of your visit there, and elsewhere in Japan.

Visiting Tokyo Disney is number 1 on my bucket list since it’s one of the best parks in the world. I never get tired of reading reports from Tokyo Disney!

Have fun in Japan and looking forward to the next report!
