TBJ TRAVELS TOKYO, JAPAN 2016 1: Tokyo Disney Sea Guide + Travel Itinerary

Last June, I went to Tokyo, Japan for the second time for a breather and my birthday. It was actually a spontaneous trip; I had zero plans of traveling after my Cambodia vacation, but the 5k base fare sale for roundtrip tickets to Tokyo by Jetstar was just too good to miss! I figured, it’s been three years since my last visit to Tokyo, Japan, and this time, I’ll have more time to explore the city!

TIP: Jetstar Japan conducts seat sales almost often to different destinations in Japan so check out their website often to score a deal.
If you are purchasing using credit card, be sure to bring the actual credit card with you on the day of your trip to claim your boarding pass; this is a policy of Jetstar and those who won’t abide will be denied entry.

6:05 a.m. We landed at Narita International Airport and our first itinerary was a night visit at Tokyo Disney Sea.

Tokyo Disneyland is one of the first Disney theme parks built outside America. Later on, Tokyo Disney Sea was built and offers rides and parks that are geared towards older children, teens, and adults in my opinion, but children can still find a bevy of activities to do in this park.

To get to Tokyo Disneyland, Tokyo Disney Sea, and Disney Hotel, the cheapest way is to ride the train and alight at the Disney Resort line.

TIP: Maihama station is the exact station beside Disney Resort Line.
I'm right outside Resort Gateway Station, portal to Tokyo Disneyland, Tokyo Disney Sea, and Disney Hotel.

The Resort Gateway Station card tellers.

If you’re a one- time visitor, purchase this single journey ticket for the Disney train. I believe you can purchase longer train passes if you’re visiting Disneyland on consecutive days.

Hello, Tokyo Disney Sea!

I opted for a Night Visit because it’s the cheapest way to visit the park. It’s about P2,200-2,400+ only when converted, if I am not mistaken. Day passes are at P3,500+. Night Visitors can enter the park starting at 6 P.M.

Of course we had to drop by a Disney Souvenir shop to get our Disney souvenir fix!

They said that one day is not enough to thoroughly enjoy Tokyo Disney Sea and daylight gives a better view of the park, but night time is the best time to watch the 15- minute Disney Parade show. We were fortunate enough to catch it! The show left me teary- eyed; it was fantastic and it brought out that little child in me once again.

Let’s go around Tokyo Disney Sea!

TIP: Passes for Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo Disney Sea are separate.

Venice- inspired park. You can ride the gondolas too!

Hotel Miracosta and Plaza. Most of the restaurants are in this area.

1940's America inspired street.

S.S. Columbia, which houses one of the fine dining restaurants in the theme park.

The Tower of Terror. Not for the faint of heart!

Toy Story Mania is one of the most popular attractions in the area. Even my friends said so too. Sadly, the line was too long and it was 9pm already when we got here!
TIP: There's a thing called Fast Pass at the park and if I'm not mistaken, it's issued at the entrance. Fast Pass gives you the privilege to be prioritized in any attraction/ride that you choose to try. Fast Passes are available for all rides and you can get unlimited passes for any ride you choose, but you have to wait for the designated hour of release for each Fast Pass.
Special Set dinner at one of the cafes at Hotel Miracosta sponsored by UCC. This is called the Special Set and costs about P1,000.00+ only; it's cheaper compared to ordering ala carte! The coffee is a separate purchase though.

A wonderful view of Tokyo Disney Sea's main attractions clustered together. Indeed, it's the most magical place on earth!

Aquatopia. Prepare to get wet when you take a ride in this attraction!

Journey To The Center of the Earth; one attraction that caught my attention the most!

Too bad I didn't get to ride this thing; was really looking forward to it, but the park was closed already when we got here. :(

There were a couple of attractions that we did not get to check out because the park was closing down by the time we got to Journey to the Center of the Earth; that's the downside of the Night Pass; you won't have enough time to visit everything, but since we were on a budget trip, it's something that we had to accept. Lesson learned, I will go for the full day pass next time!

That's all! Sorry if it wasn't that informative; as I said, we didn't have enough time to try the rides and attractions, let alone check out everything so I just showed you around!

Tomorrow, let's visit Ueno Park, Tokyo National Museum, Senso-ji Temple, and Akihabara, the gamer's central!
