The plan for Saturday was to walk to the Outback Steakhouse, another all American meal, get some yogurt at Golden Spoon (this was a definite unexpected plus!) then head out to Disney Sea, another discounted ticket beginning at 3pm. Lunch and yogurt were great as was the following trip to Disney Sea. This place is nothing like any amusement park I have ever been to. It had a European feel and the buildings/ structures were awesome! We only went on two rides here, totaling about 3 hours wait time. We went on Journey to the Center of the Earth, a 2 hour wait (the last 10 seconds of the ride was great….I’ll just leave it at that). Then we went on a Star Tours meets Honey I Shrunk the Audience with Weather/Storms. Think about that one for a bit! The part that made the night here was the Candlelight Christmas show in “Mediterranean Harbor.” I video taped most of it since it was really hard to get a good picture. It is a great example of a Christmas in Japan moment…The best parts of the video are after the 1 minute mark (sorry I couldn’t edit it and it’s too cool to skip) I'M HAVING SOME TROUBLES UPLOADING...STILL WORKING ON IT. After we finished browsing through the scary shopping zones we decided our cups had been filled with Disneyland adventures and it was time to leave the Happiest Place in Tokyo. Sunday was a lazy day that began when our human alarm clock decided she would sleep till 9:45 (Thanks Alison! :) ) We went downstairs and out into the Tokyo midtown courtyard for some Starbucks before checking out and beginning our trek to the airport, a trek that turned out to be much longer than expected after we followed a sign that should be taken down due to its inaccuracy! But don’t you worry we still made it in time to sit for about 20 minutes before boarding! Now it’s 9:20pm and we're back with some laundry going and the Christmas music playing!
This weekend was a great time to get away and see a bit of what’s out there in Japan, away from the Hawaii part. Overall it was a great trip. We had a few different encounters with people wondering where we were from and fascinated with the fact that we were in Tokyo; some on the subway and some at Disneyland. Now if only I could have a vacation after my vacation to recuperate from all that fun that was had. Oh well, 3 more weeks of school until Christmas break!
