Dad Yee took a day off work so we could all go to DisneySea together and because we were going with parents, that meant there was no way we’d be going anywhere early…or even mildly late. We didn’t leave the house until after 10:30 am and had to stop by at a Doutor Coffee down the road for some breakfast before finally starting the hour long trek to DisneySea. We didn’t arrive until almost 1pm. This place is beautiful to walk around in. It’s absolutely stunning and the amount of photos I took…were definitely not enough. If you’re there to see how stunning this place is, then it’s worth it. However, if you’re there for the rides experience….NEXXXXXXXTTTTTT! Go to Fuji-Q Highland instead. We went on a whopping two, maybe three, rides in total. The wait times were over an hour and the rides were less than three minutes. They also weren’t as thrilling as the Fuji-Q Highland rides. The effects and scenery in the rides were nice though, but for waiting about 90 minutes for each ride it just wasn’t worth it in the end. We didn’t even get a chance to go on the Tower of Terror because it was almost 6pm and the wait time was 101 minutes.
After the Indiana Jones ride, we still had a while to wait before our fast pass time for the Journey to the Center of the Earth ride, so we went to find Parents. They were having lunch at the Teddy Roosevelt Lounge, so we just waltzed right in like VIPs. I then proceeded to order the chocolate parfait for lunch but Mum Yee had a go at me because “it wasn’t a real lunch”. Shut up, I’m an adult and can have ice cream for lunch if I want…ensue endless pouts. I won, because Dad Yee had my back! Team Dad.
After the Journey to the Center of the Earth (longest name ever) ride we gave up on rides and decided to scope out all the popcorn flavours and cool limited containers each stand had. Yeah, we walked to all ten of those damn things. Wanted to try the chocolate popcorn, but it was the one with the weird Duffy bear, which by the way we’d never even heard or seen of before coming here, so the line was insanely long. After spending an hour walking around and taking photos of things we decided those carry boxes were lame and we probably wouldn’t have enough room for it in our luggage, so we got a tiny curry flavoured popcorn box.We read the night before there was this thing called the “gyoza dog” where it’s like a giant gyoza so we were pretty excited to try it. Well, it’s not a bloody gyoza! It’s just a damn meat bun that you can get for $1 at any Asian eatery.
We’d walked almost everywhere so we decided to hit up Triton’s Kingdom and damn, it’s pretty in there!
After meeting up with Parents again we made our way down to Tower of Terror because they wanted to check out the Toy Story Mania show as well which was right next to it. Luckily both had wait time close to 2 hours, so we called it a night and headed away from the resort.
Chen and I were sad we didn’t get a chance to ride Tower of Terror and somehow Dad and I got to talking about how there was this cool roller coaster near the Tokyo Dome that I didn’t get to ride last time I was there because Goldie was recovering from gastro and wouldn’t go on the ride with me. So, we ended up heading in that direction because it was only a slight detour from home. When we got there, though, the ride was closed because it was too windy!! Was this ride and I just not meant to be? So, we decided to spend more than a half hour deciding where to eat. Mum was not happy.
