Every single time I look at a trip report from Disney Sea I found a new attraction of some sort that I had no idea existed and this show has filled that void. Thanks for giving me another reason to go!
So after we saw this great live show, we just meandered back and forth through the park, got on a couple of attractions we wanted to re-ride...and then, eventually, picking up valued Fast Passes for attractions after we came back to the park, after our couple of hours' break at the hotel room.
So after "Mystic Rhythms" is over, it's just natural to explore around the Lost River Delta.
Trekking back through Port Discovery, I got a day time shot of the outside of the Storm Riders attraction. It's quite the use of a "mass simulator", honest!
And the wing-ding itself, gets my attention. I love the "airiness" of PD. Harnessing water and wind. Very cool.
A Disney Sea Dude. One legged too! :P
So one last look, for now....
The Globe with The Themeing...
It's a BFF KIMONO Con! Really,so many colours & patterns squished together, lol.
On the monorail back to the hotel, we passed by this lovely sculpture...
Which is opposite where the amazing CIRQUE DE SOLEIL show, ZED happened. Sadly, it only lasted less than two years. The bldg.is empty now<sad>. (I saw the production in 2011)
The soundtrack is still amazing. Worth finding and buying.
Back to where our tour began - the Room 653 View. And the parking lot IS filling up. Eep.
But we come back with future treasures, ARRRRRR! (Too early for "Talk like A Pirate Day"?)
After a while, I sent David down to the lobby level to check out a wonderful Disney Artists' Gallery. This was in one of it's windows. (DbM)
Some parks look even more fantastic at night. Even carnival type set ups, like my little home park of Playland (asphalt and all), when the sun goes down and the lights come on - its just awesome to see.
Tokyo DIsney Sea just ups the beauty of the themeing when the sun goes down, and it's lighting comes on. We went back to a fave dinner spot, for more of the same, lol.
We also found out the showing of Fantasmic! that night would be "altered" and be a "toned down version" of itself. Meaning = winds were up, and the fireworks would be down. So we took a chance, skipped this night's showing, and hoped the weather would be better for tomorrow night.
Back to the ball... er, The World Globe at TDS' entrance plaza.
I see you, Mr.Nautilus, through the archway and at your little dock, inside Mysterious Island.
And we took another 'tour' of Hightower Hotel, of course. (DbM)
Another discovery! I totally forgot about this magnificent statue, behind the Broadway theatre marquee. Very nice.
Yeah, we loved it. So much so, I believe we took two more "tours". A total of ....7 times?
Yay! Our travelator deep within the mountain's center is #3! I like 3's. The ride's not too bad, either. (o;
Getting dark now. Indiana Jones' temple looks nice in this darkness.
And we head back to the Arabian Coast, for more of....
Beef Curry! With Extra Naan! We were blissed out with this awesome food.
My take on Mermaid Lagoon.
And The Mountain.
We decided to take a night flight, on Jasmine's Flying Carpets.
Just before take off...
Lots of blues in the lighting, once you get going on it.
Late at night, looking down a practically empty pathway in the Lost River Delta.
The entrance to the "Mystic Rhythms" show. Next time, a day shot, heh heh.
David's take on Mermaid Lagoon. (DbM)
And The Mountain. (DbM)
I think this was our 5th Tour of The Tower. (o:
And then - returning to the hotel - in Ikspiari Mall - there was - Maurice...
This last day at the resort, and the tour for us, David and I decided to meet up later on in the day, at our "usual spot", that being near the gift shop in Mysterious Island at TDS. So I took off in the early morning, to finally experience what the Star Tours 2 attraction is all about. It was down for maintenance, last TPR visit, so I knew i wanted to get at least one ride in, on this visit...
It's quite the setup at Tokyo Disneyland. A massive show building with lots to see and pass by, before you finally reach your transport to...? I forgot where we were going, lol. It was a good exciting ride, but honestly, there are a couple of things I really really missed from the old ride...
Pee Wee Herman's voice as our guide. The ice caverns we rocketed into and through.
So, I did a ride on it, it was alright, and I don't need a re-ride again. Even with changing scenarios, etc etc.
My breakfast, for the morning.
View from our hotel - of that other hotel.
Mono, mono -a- mono mono...
TDL Passport Price Board.
The Jeff Johnson Special.
This is where I was heading.
Lots of nice themeing around me.
And this is The Crowd below all The Themeing. But it was an easy walk-in, when I arrived there.
We're riding one of these, still. Good old transport vehicles.
Like I said, I sort of forgot where we were heading on this voyage.
Big display screen over the entrance into the bldg., showing us where our next Space Vacation could be taken. So many planets to choose from! (o;
We see one being worked on, from a previous trip.
Yep, they're still together.
C-3PO as shiny as ever.
One of the Worker Droids.
They're so cute!
Getting closer to the boarding docks.
We're here! Ready to board and get to wherever we're going, lol!
After the ride - the exit path guides you into an overpass. And I got to see how the crowd going in, was now MUCH BIGGER than when I first arrived. It pays to get up early, for a Disney park. (o:
So after Star Tours 2 was ridden, I took a look at the Standby Queue time for Monsters Hide and Go Seek (2 hours?!!), and decided that was enough and headed over to Disney Sea.
Toured around the park, took in some quiet spots I hadn't seen before, like around the lighthouse overseeing the Cape Cod area of American Waterfront, and a walk through of Mermaid Lagoon, checking out the Calypso Kitchen for a possible lunch break, with David.
And on through the late morning, before meeting up with David in the afternoon...
So after leaving Star Tours 2, I took a shot of the crowds queueing for the Monster's Inc. ride. Eek.
Eek indeed. And this was just after 0930 in the morning! I didn't bother hanging around for a re-ride. Next visit.
A last look at the castle before leaving the park.
Note to theme park CD buyers! This was The Place in TDL, to find practically every CD available, in BOTH parks!
The monorail from TDL, to TDS goes around this upper corner of the park, which is basically being used for growing trees and shrubbery. But - it's a big space, eventually getting something put there. Hope I'm around when it happens, heh heh.
Here's how that spot looks like, from the inside of the park, between Port Discovery and the Lost River Delta. I think is is going on my Bucket List: Going on whatever they eventually plan for this area. (o: Here's hoping...
So, back inside where I am happy the most.
One of these future visits, I would like to just tour around the ship.
Looks so natural. Cape Cod with an active volcano behind it, LOL!
One of the Transit Steamer Line boats, chugging past the lighthouse in Cape Cod.
BFF - if you can see them in that colourful Kimono Mash-up, heh.
Looking over to the Arabian Coast, in the park. Really amazing that Tokyo Disneyland sits (literally) right behind this section of TDS
And here's my walk though Mermaid Lagoon, with the spinning Kelp Cups in front.
The Jumpin' Jellyfish ride.
Yeah, I rode the Jumpin'Jellyfish. Got a couple of overhead (ha) shots.
Just love all the lighting and themeing of this 'land'. Nothing like it.
And of course, souvenir browsing/buying in the Sleepy Whale Shoppe.

Really enjoyed reading your reports of the last few days at TDR. It's such an amazing place and DisneySea is just spectacular. Next time definitely explore the Columbia. We went on and there is T Roosevelt's Lounge and looking off the ship from the decks is really cool.
It's nice to see all the little details around the parks that you saw and shared with us all.
Thanks again Bill

After strolling through Mermaid Lagoon, I took a ride on the Transit Steamer boat, full circle ride from the dock in Cape Cod, and took a few "from the water" shots during the trip. I then took myself to Pier 33 for a breather and a beverage concoction most interesting,.."The Orange Cocktail". Basically it was just beer and an orange flavouring, but for myself, very quenching during the start of the afternoon there.
After the cocktail break, I met up with David for the rest of our day there.
Aquatopia Shot #1
Aquatopia Shot #2
Another look at the Cape Cod area of the park.
Mickey and me seem to disagree, as to who should be at the steering wheel. The Mouse won, of course.
On the Steamer boat, there was this Really Into It Duffy Fan. He spent a lot of time, during the sailing, posing and snapping pic after pic of the lovely....uh.... couple. The dock crew member seems amused by it.
Here's a few shots, taken from the Transit Steamer boat. Mermaid Lagoon.
The Nautilus, docked in Mysterious Island (Vulcania).
Heading out into Mediterranean Harbour.
Mt.Prometheus, looking it's best. Then we were back at our dock. Great full circle tour of the park! Everyone should try it at least once.
A photo taken from one of the uncrowded spots in the park
And just in front there, with ToT in back...
Pier 33! A favourite number of mine, doubled!
The beer drinks board at Barnacle Bill's. I noticed this special cocktail was only available during the park's Summer Festival celebrations, just starting up while we were there.
And THIS is what the Beer Cocktail (Orange) looks like. Tasted okay. Nothing overdone to make me gag and spit it out, LOL!
