I've always thought Tokyo, and Japan in general, looked interesting but it was never high on my travel bucket list until I started following all of y'all's travels. Incredible. Always love the reports. It's #1 on my list and I can't wait!

Loving this report and it's getting me really excited for the trip! Robb are there any new Duffy & ShellieMay & friends characters that you're looking to add to your collection on your next visit? Or is there a Halloween style/alt of a character you're looking forward to the most?

They didn't do any classic Halloween costumes this year, but they have some AMAZING "fall" costumes that I am going to pick up not long after we land in Tokyo! Basically, the plane will land, and as soon as I can, I'm heading to Tokyo DisneySEA and then right to the Duffy store to pick up the new costumes! Gotta have her ready for her Tokyo Disney Halloween Season premiere! :lmao:

Also, Duffy is currently in the Lost River Delta area wearing a sombrero, so there is that! :p

Google'd. Yeah the little red riding hood outfit for ShellieMay is adorable. The Sweet Dreams line that comes out October 8th looks really cute, too!

is your annual pass good at Disney parks all over the world? Or do you just do evening tickets each night if you're in a place with a DisneyPark and want to pop in?

^No. There's actually no pass that's good at ALL the parks. Tokyo Disney tickets are 'cheap' enough (especially compared to here in the US) that it wasn't even cheaper to buy a pass for this year with our visits in March and October. Trust me, we did the math! For example, the after 6pm ticket is $40. The annual pass is $900 (and has blackout dates). That's a LOT of visits to make your money back.

Tokyo Disney does an "after 6pm" pass on the weeknights or "After 3pm" pass on the weekends. So outside of the "official days" when we have a 4-day ticket, I'll just go and buy the after Xpm tickets to spend a few hours. It's usually about $40 - $45 for the after 6pm pass, and the park is usually open until 10pm.

That being said, I do treat my bonus nighttime visits much like I do my Annual Pass visits at Walt Disney World. I normally go in just to "walk around" and take photos, see the shows and *maybe* ride something. For example at Disneyland, I'll most certainly watch Dream Lights every night I'm there, walk around a bit, and then a few minutes before park closing get in line for Pooh (which is never more than about 25 minutes at that time.)

At DisneySEA I'll just spend that time walking around taking photos, and usually taking a ride on Aquatopia & Sindbad... maybe the Indy single rider line as well.

I will probably watch Fantasmic! at least once or twice this trip because it's ending, but honestly, I usually don't watch it because I've seen it many times before, and it takes time away from just exploring the park.

But that is my usual typical night at these parks, and is exactly why we ended up staying a week in Japan without riding any roller coaster! The lines for Space Mountain & Thunder Mountain were just too long for attractions we basically have the same versions of here in the US.

^ & ^^

that's really cool that they offer the after 6 pass. I had heard y'all talk about it, but didn't realize it was so (relatively) inexpensive.

that's great!
