Day Ten - Part Two: Tokyo Disneyland Countdown Party
During the planning part of this trip we found out about this New Years Eve "Countdown Party." Basically, here is the deal. The park opens from 10am to 6pm on New Years Eve for normal operation, then re-opens again from 8pm to 2am for the Private Party, then re-opens yet AGAIN from 2am to 10pm (yes you read that correctly!)
So when we found out about this, we HAD to go! Luckily (thanks to Chris) we were able to get tickets via Yahoo Auctions that weren't much more expensive than the face value of the tickets.
Now, we were told in advance all these stories of the hundreds of thousands of people who would show up, and how we wouldn't get to ride anything because it was wall to wall people.
Hmm....well, yes, there were hundreds of thousands of people there, yes, but we got to do a LOT...
Anyway, onto the photos!
Yay! Back at Disney with the kick ass monorails!!!!
It's going to seem weird using this same ticket in the fastpass machines for the next 30 hours!
Yay! It's the countdown party!!!! (They even had one in my Animal Crossing town!)
Tonight's cast of chracters does in fact include Mark for all you stalkers out there! :D
This was the MASS amount of people waiting OUTSIDE the park! The awesomeness that is Japan got through that line in about 15 minutes!!!
What you are looking at is 100,000 Japanese camped out on Main Street waiting patiently for the fireworki\s!
Time to start riding! Big Thunder first!
It looks pretty kick ass at night.
Hey look! It's more Mark for the Quaker fans!!!
I think half of Japan was working crowd control that night!
More people camped out, blankets and all! There were parades than ran for hours!
Yay! We even got on Pooh! Too bad this ride is SO AWESOME because I hate Pooh!!!
But it does have a Donkey so that makes it ok. ;)
Small World Holiday. Annoying? Yes. But at least they don't play the song over and over again!
Lines were actually pretty damn short duing the Countdown Party!
It's California's Space Mountain cira 1977.
"Yo stalkers, check me out. I'm the Quaker. For $500 you can get this picture autographed!"
After seeing the old version of the queue, I realize more and more had the new California version was hardly updated.
What was the point of even changing it????
Ok, we need to get back to Disney. I'll post more Tokyo Disney photos later!
