東京ディズニーシー : Tokyo Disneysea
Tokyo Disneysea is the only Disneysea in the world. The park entry fee cost about S$80 per adult. The signature character in this theme park is Duffy Bear, while Disneyland is more to Mickey Mouse and all the other classic Disney Characters. You can almost find every souvenir shops in Disneysea selling premiums and merchandise on Duffy Bear.

The park is quite big and it will at least take you an hour or so to finish walking the park if you do not include the waiting time to the rides or shows. Disneysea houses several exciting attractions such as the Tower of Terror
and Raging Spirits
. The park also featured a number of family-oriented rides other than the 2 which I mentioned. The park is quite crowded during normal weekedays, especially during the summer season. If you are thinking the exciting rides, the average waiting time is close to 3 hours sometimes.

Foods in DisneySea are costly, so prepare a bigger wallet if you are thinking of having a good meal here. Nevertheless, there are still affordable meals at around S$10 available. There are few restaurants, cafes, popcorn vans, ice cream vans and drinks stations all around the park. For the popcorn vans, different themed area of the park carries different type of flavour. The most popular one is the curry flavoured...I believed, where you can only get at Arabian Coast
Curry Popcorn, good to try and nice to eat!

During my stay, I had my dinner at Cape Cod Cook-Off
which is located in American Waterfront
. Cape Cod Cook-Off
sells the normal fast foods like those in Burger King or similar. I spent about S$10 there and happy with my dinner. I ordered the chicken burger meal, the foods was tasty and nice. The fries were much nicer than those from fast foods too. There is live show available too, click this link
to find out more! :)

DisneySea unlike Disneyland, wrapped the night with a watershow instead of firework. The show was quite nice, my friend an I was late for it though. Overall, I really enjoyed my visit to DisneySea. The trip have been fruitful. I met up with my favourite Disney Character, Stitch! Also, I met Mickey Mouse and Duffy Bear too, they were all adorable.
Mickey and Stitch!!
In conclusion, Disneysea
is one of nicest theme parks in Japan. I am disappointed that I did not get to ride any roller coaster due to the long waiting time. I just hope the next time when I visit the park again, I will get to ride them. As for souvenirs, I bought a key chain back and I got myself some medallion coins from the medal-printing machines.
The machines, similar to Hong Kong's Disneyland.
Nevertheless, coming to DisneySea is quite a long trip from central Tokyo such as Roppongi (六本木) and Shinjuku (新宿), each trip might take about 30 to 40 minutes depending on what transport you take. For my trip, of course, I took the train there. To get here, you can take the JR Yamanote train to Ebisu station, transfer over to Hibiya Metro train and alight at Hatchobori station (八丁堀駅). Then, transfer to Keiyo line (JR train) and alight at Maihama station (舞浜駅), from there then transfer over to the Disney Resort Line to reach DisneySea.
