Japan (Nov2011) Day 2: Tokyo
We originally planned to go Disneysea on a weekday, however we were concerned about the weather, so we chose to go Disneysea on the earliest possible day when the weather is good...and thus, a weekend. Sigh.
We got our Disneysea tickets from JTB in Singapore (which is cheaper than if you got it from the entrance of Disneyland/Disneysea itself, and you will also save time queuing for tickets).
To get to Disneyland/Disneysea, just take a train to Maihama station. You might need to do a train transfer at Tokyo station. From Maihama station, take the Disney monorail, and you will arrive at Disneysea. There are many Disneylands in the world, but there's only 1 Disneysea and that's in Tokyo.

|All these people are queuing up to enter Disneysea. Imagine if you were to queue once to buy tickets, and then queue again to enter. Which is why I recommend getting the tickets in Singapore.|
Avoid visiting Disneyland/Disneysea on weekends! Don't make the same mistake I did.

|Finally I am inside Disneysea!|
|we were the 1st to enter this restaurant (just minutes after they open for business) for an early lunch.|
Disneysea is celebrating their 10th Anniversary, and so there's a special performance called "Be Magical". The characters come out on little ferries/floating platforms.
There are many mini stages scattered around the lake, and the one I am at happens to be where Donald Duck goes to...
|And then his gf comes looking for him.|
