The Klook Guide To Tokyo DisneySea 2017

Discover the secrets of Tokyo DisneySea!

Tokyo DisneySea may have a reputation for having a more ‘grown-up’ theme, but the Disney charm is still very much alive in its thrilling rides, nautical-themed attractions and intricate decor. There’s only one DisneySea in the entire world but many Disney fanatics claim it is also the best Disney park!

Here’s the lowdown on what makes this park so special and how you can maximize a day at Tokyo DisneySea!

1. About Tokyo DisneySea


Source

There are seven themed lands, or ‘ports of call’ that make up Tokyo DisneySea. They are Mediterranean Harbor, Mysterious Island, Mermaid Lagoon, Arabian Coast, Lost River Delta, Port Discovery and American Waterfront.

Often considered the crown jewel of Disney Parks, the distinctly different Tokyo DisneySea is a nautical-themed park inspired by sea myths and legends. Compared to its counterparts, Tokyo DisneySea caters to a more grown-up audience with wilder thrill rides, alcoholic beverages and extravagant, detailed visuals and decorations.

You can find a detailed map of Tokyo DisneySea on the website.

What else is it about DisneySea that makes it different from all the other Disney parks in the world? Check out our article on reasons why Tokyo DisneySea is truly one of a kind.

2. Tokyo DisneySea Opening Hours


Source

The park’s operating hours are typically from 9am till 10pm daily. However, it may differ on certain dates and special holidays. To be sure, you can check beforehand on the park’s website.

Due to DisneySea’s popularity, you can expect to find queues forming hours even before the park gates open. So, do allow yourself ample time to get to the park so you can be there early if you want to maximize your day at DisneySea.

If you are a guest at one of Tokyo Disney Resort theme parks’ hotels, however, you’re entitled to ‘Happy 15 Entry’ privileges. You can enter certain areas of the park 15 minutes before regular park opening time. This allows you access to designated attractions, stores for shopping or in obtaining a FastPass ticket before everyone else.

3. Where To Buy Tickets


Source

There are a few ways you can get your hands on DisneySea tickets. For the most convenient, hassle-free and straightforward way, you can get your 1-Day Pass or 2-Day Pass from Klook. You can enjoy instant confirmation privileges and best price guarantee!

You can buy on-the-day tickets as well at the park’s ticket booths. However, it can be risky as they may deny sales if the park is at high capacity. Besides that, you can also get tickets online from the Tokyo Disney Resort official website. Official Tokyo Disney Resort hotel guests can get tickets at the hotel and be guaranteed admission even during peak and restricted periods.


Source

Tickets to the park can also be purchased beforehand in select Disney Stores in Japan or from tickets machines in Family Mart and Lawson Convenience Stores. The only tricky part about the ticket machines from Family Mart and Lawson is that they’re in Japanese only!

4. Best Time To Visit


Source

As expected of one of the world’s most visited theme parks, Tokyo DisneySea receives a large number of crowd all year round. You’ll almost never see an empty park at DisneySea and even its low seasons are busier than most other parks.

Taking into account public holidays, weather and other factors, the ideal time to visit DisneySea are before or after Golden Week (early April or late May). During this time, summer hasn’t begun yet either so you can spend the day at the park comfortably.

Major Japanese public holidays are the busiest times like New Year’s (end of Dec to early Jan) and Golden Week (end of April to early May) and other school holidays. For a full list of Japanese school holidays, refer to this list. For the best way to gauge the volume of the crowd and the ideal time for you to visit the park, this crowd calendar is super handy!

 


Source

If you’re not too bothered by the crowd, however, special holidays are great for catching limited, seasonal events. Halloween and Christmas are especially popular among visitors. The park is extra festive with extravagant decorations and plenty of special entertainment in tow.

Don’t stress too much if you’re aren’t able to find the perfect date to visit the park. Just remember that you’re in Tokyo DisneySea and it’s hard to have a terrible time there!

5. Top Attractions


Source


Source

In Tokyo DisneySea, Toy Story Mania! is easily one of the most popular attractions in the park. FastPass for this ride runs out very quickly, if not the fastest. Journey to the Center of the Earth has also been said as one of the best thrills rides in DisneySea for its intricate decorations and themes.


Source

Besides that, Tower of Terror is also one of the top DisneySea attractions. With elaborate decorations starting from the queue, it’s no wonder that it’s a fan favourite. Other must-try attractions include Sindbad’s Storybook Voyage, Raging Spirits, Indiana Jones Adventure, Aquatopia and more.


Source

Tokyo DisneySea will also be celebrating Halloween this coming September with Disney villains like Maleficent from ‘Sleeping Beauty’, who will be taking over the Mediterranean Harbor with Mickey and friends for a special parade called “The Villains World”. In this special parade, we’ll see the Disney villains taking the leading role for an interesting performance!

To discover more top attractions and all about the 7 ports of call in Tokyo DisneySea, look out for an upcoming article on Klook that gives you the lowdown of it all.

Tokyo DisneySea is also the park where you’ll find that Duffy is more popular the Mickey! Duffy is Mickey’s stuffed bear companion and his fluffy pink companion, Shellie May is equally as cute. Duffy souvenirs can only be found in DisneySea and not in Tokyo Disneyland.


Source

Also, make sure you look out for the hand-washing stations at the park. They feature a soap dispenser that releases Mickey Mouse-shaped soap foam when a button is pushed. Only Disney can make washing hands fun!

6. The FastPass System


Source

The lines to the rides at DisneySea can get very long, with popular ones having waiting times upwards of 2 hours. Hence, like other Disney Parks, DisneySea has the FastPass system in place as well to help visitors minimize waiting time and it’s free to use for everyone.

With the FastPass, it allows you to jump to an express queue (for selected attractions) between a stipulated time. You can claim your FastPass by scanning your entrance ticket, picking the attraction you want and the specific time slot that is available. You just have to be in the queue at the return time window on your FastPass. So, in the meantime, you can maximize your time and go on other rides.


Source

However, due to the large crowd and limited quantity of FastPass tickets given out daily in DisneySea, they run out very fast. There’s usually a queue already to get the FastPass tickets right when the park opens. So, plan your FastPass strategy wisely!

After a FastPass has been issued, to be eligible for the next FastPass, you have to wait for your return time to start or two hours after receiving your previous Fastpass — whichever comes first. The following attractions are eligible for FastPass entry:

Getting There: Take the Sentosa Express train from Vivocity and alight at the Beach station. Follow signs to Palawan Kidz City

Opening hours: 10.00am-5.00pm

Klook cost: US$23 (SGD31)

7. Lottery System


Source

Separate from the FastPass, the DisneySea lottery system is where park guests can enter the ‘lottery’ for a chance to watch a specific performance. The lottery machines are located in the Mediterranean Harbour. The lottery system is to give all guests a chance to watch shows that have limited seating even if they’ve arrived at the park later in the day.


Source

In Tokyo DisneySea, Big Band Beat is the only show which uses the lottery system. However, you can still catch the show even if you didn’t win the lottery. Simply queue at the standby line for a balcony seating. Besides that, you don’t need to enter the lottery if it’s the first performance of the day.

8. Transportation within the park

From Venetian gondolas to an elevated railway system and steamer line, Tokyo DisneySea continues to wow visitors with the park’s own transportation within the park.

8.1 Venetian Gondolas


Source

Just like a scene out of Venice, the Venetian gondolas at Palazzo Canals are huge hits with the park visitors. Made even more entertaining by the jovial gondoliers, the view from the gondolas after sunset is absolutely stunning.

8.2 DisneySea Electric Railway


Source

Hop aboard the elevated railway ride if you’d like to catch a breather from all the walking at the park. It’s a relaxing and scenic way to Port Discovery with a great view of American Waterfront down below.

8.3 Big City Vehicles


Source

Get a feel of what it’s like in the 20th century in one of the Big City Vehicles. Ride across American Waterfront from Cape Cod to New York Harbor or vice versa. The different models from the limousine to paddy wagon, delivery truck and more certainly add to the truly unique DisneySea experience.

8.4 DisneySea Transit Steamer Line


Source


Source

If you want to slow down and soak up the gorgeous view of the park, the DisneySea Transit Steamer Line is a great option. With routes from Mediterranean Harbor to Cape Cod and Lost River Delta, it’s a great way to travel around the park.

9. Food in Tokyo DisneySea

Tokyo DisneySea Cocktails

Japan doesn’t mess around when it comes to food and this extends to Tokyo DisneySea as well. Many say that DisneySea has the best food compared to all other Disney parks and caters to a more mature palate. It is also one of the very few Disney parks that serve alcoholic beverages! They’re not just serving regular ol’ pints of beer either, but a mix of fun cocktails at kiosks to fine selections of liquor at the elegant Teddy Roosevelt Lounge.


Source


Source

As for the dining experience, you can enjoy an exquisite fine dining experience at the luxurious Magellan’s or a hearty meal at one of the sit-down restaurants. There are also plenty of fun, delicious snacks to munch on throughout the day like caramel & banana sweet fried burrito, Little Green Alien mochi, the Chandu Tiger Tail bun, the classic Disney turkey leg and the list goes on.


Source

But of course, a day at the Disney park isn’t complete without popcorn! At DisneySea, you can find all sorts of flavours like soy sauce & butter, curry, honey, cappuccino and more. If you’re lucky, you might even be able to try some of their seasonal flavours.

10. Getting connected in the park

Unfortunately, there’s no free public WiFi in Tokyo DisneySea. To make sure that you’re always connected, get a 4G WiFi device from Klook.

The park has a web app with information on waiting times of standby lines for all the attractions in real time. You can only be access the web app when you’re in the park. Make sure to enable GPS location services on your phone and use it on Chrome for the translation feature.

Plus, if you’re not connected, how else are you going to update your social media and make everyone jealous of your awesome time at DisneySea?

11. Where to stay near DisneySea


Source

There are endless of choices of hotels in and around Tokyo and it all depends on your budget. For convenience, you can consider one of the 3 Disney hotels, 6 official hotels or other partner hotels close to the park. Disney hotels are on-property owned by the park while official hotels are on-property but are owned by other companies. Partner companies, on the other hand, are owned by other companies which located in the vicinity of the Tokyo Disney parks.

For an in-depth look at the hotels in and around Tokyo Disney Resort, read our accommodation guide.

For guests who are staying at Tokyo Disney Resort theme parks’ hotels (Disney Ambassador Hotel, Tokyo DisneySea Hotel MiraCosta, Tokyo Disneyland Hotel), they’re entitled to ‘Happy 15 Entry’ privileges like entering the park 15 minutes before regular park opening time. Other perks include complimentary ride on the Disney Resort Line monorail and shuttle bus service on the Disney Resort Cruiser.

12. How to get to Tokyo DisneySea

Known for having efficient and excellent public transport, getting to Tokyo Disney Resort isn’t much of a trouble. The best way to get to the park is by the train or bus.

12.1 Train

Depending on which part of the city you’re coming from, you can get to Tokyo Disney Resort on the JR Keiyo Line or JR Musashino Line, stopping at the Maihama Station. From there, get on the Disney Resort Monorail from the Resort Gateway Station that is adjacent to JR Maihama Station. You’ll reach Tokyo DisneySea at the third stop, Tokyo DisneySea Station.

It’s also worth looking into a JR Rail Pass if you’re going to be commuting around Japan for an extended period of time. It’s the most convenient and economical way with coverage all over Japan and you can take rides on the majority of all JR railways, local buses, and even the Miyajima Ferry. There is 7-Day , 14-Day and 21-Day passes available from Klook.

12.2 Bus

One of the ways to get to the park by bus is to catch one at Shinjuku Station that goes to Tokyo Disney Resort. You can also find other buses with scheduled trips to the Resort from Tokyo, Kawasaki, Yokohama and more. For a detailed guide and scheduled, take a look at Tokyo Disney Resort’s bus guide.

However, do note that by taking the bus, you’re on a stricter time schedule and you would have to plan your time more accordingly.

All You Need To Know About Tokyo’s Robot Restaurant

The only Robot Restaurant in Asia

Giant Cobras.

Dancing Horses.

Warrior Girls.

What in the world are we talking about?

No, we’re not out of our minds, we’re talking about the Robot Restaurant in Japan!

Located in Kabukichō, Shinjuku, you definitely can’t miss it! All you need to do is look out for a colossal neon signboard with two equally giant robots. Hold your breath and be transported into an alternate reality where flashing lights, crystal chandeliers, mirrors (lots of them) and neon sparkles take charge.

You, my friend, have been transported to the world where robots rule!

We present to you a foolproof guide to having the best experience at Tokyo’s Robot Restaurant.

How do I get to the Robot Restaurant?

The Robot Restaurant is pretty accessible, only a 5-minutes walk from

  • JR Shinjuku Station
  • Shinjuku Sanchome Station (Tokyo Metro)
  • Toei Shinjuku Line

Address: 1-7-1 Kabukicho Shinjuku-ku Tokyo, Japan

Klook Pro-Tip: If you’re coming from JR Shinjuku Station, take the East Exit for Kabukichō. With Studio Alta in front of you, cross the street and walking any of the side streets to Yasukuni Dori (a street in Shinjuku popular for its neon lights). Finally cross the pedestrian and you’ll spot a Family Mart Convenience Store and like we mentioned, the gigantic neon sign will give it away.

We suggest you purchase a Tokyo Subway Ticket or JR Pass for a better deal rather than buying per distance travelled each time you wish to take the subway.

Where can I get tickets?

Tickets are available at their official website or head down to your hotel’s concierge to request for a ticket reservation. Either way you purchase your tickets, you are required to redeem them at the ticket counter across the street of Robot Restaurant.

Alternatively, you can book via Klook in the comforts of wherever (as long as you have an internet connection) and enter Robot Restaurant directly with our mobile e-ticket; no redemption required.

What does my admission ticket include?

At the Robot Restaurant, each admission ticket entitles you to a 90-minute show. When you enter, food and drinks can be bought a la carte.

Klook Pro-Tip: You can always pay an additional fee to include a Bento Box Meal. We suggest havinga meal before heading over because there isn’t much to choose from and the portions can be quite small.

The show happens four times a day. However, do check the official schedule or give them a call to ensure the show is ongoing.

  • First Performance: 4:00pm (doors open 3:00pm)
  • Second Performance: 5:55pm (doors open 5:00pm)
  • Third Performance: 7:50pm (doors open 7:00pm)
  • Fourth Performance: 9:45pm (doors open 9:00pm)

You must check in at least 30 minutes before the show starts.

Book your tickets for the first performance at 4.00pm over the weekend with Klook and get 2 exclusive free gifts: a JPY500 drink coupon and pictures with the robots!

Is there a dress code at Robot Restaurant?

Interestingly enough, yes there is! It’s important to note that you must follow these strict guidelines properly to avoid an embarrassing rejection at the entrance.

  • No sunglasses
  • Not intoxicated (drunk)
  • No visible tattoos
  • No costumes (cosplay, wigs etc)

There is also a stern restriction over professional photography, therefore professional cameras aren’t allowed. Thank goodness for the ever improving camera quality of our smartphones, you’ll still be able to immortalize your (off the wall) experience.

The Robot Restaurant is extremely Instagram-mable in its own special way.

Giant Female Robots

WiFi might be weak because in a room full of 120 people (if it is full house), signal strength ain’t on a roll! We suggest you get a Portable Wifi Device to keep you connected at maximum signal strength so you can bombard your friends with weird colourful robots.

Remember not to touch the dancers and not to leave your seats as well.

Audience Seated

Source

Klook Fun Fact: You are asked to cover up any visible tattoos because of the association with mafia in the Japanese psyche, and not to wear sunglasses for the same reason.

What is the show like?

Spectacularly bizarre.

Flashing Neon Light Action

Source

Multi-coloured laser lights, flashy female dancers (don’t worry, it’s capped at PG-13) and odd-looking robots is all we can say. There isn’t much of a linear storyline and you probably won’t understand what you’re watching, but there’s one thing that we’re sure of – endless energy and lots of laughter! From drumming beats to mock battles between giant sharks and dancing horses, it’s seriously entertaining.

There are 3-4 short breaks in-between sets where staff will parade the theatre, holding up signboards with food and drinks in hopes of getting you to binge eat for the next segment. This is your cue to redeem your free JPY500 drink coupon! Most will probably get a drink or 2 along with some popcorn to keep sane.

Flashy Cars and Robots

Source

Glow sticks will be handed out at the last segment so you can wave them ecstatically in the air as you bob along to the electronic beats!

Special Glow Stick

The Robot Restaurant epitomizes the bizarre side of Japan and it is definitely an experience you shouldn’t miss out on your trip to Tokyo!

Why Tokyo DisneySea Is The ONLY Disney Park Of Its Kind In The World

Only one DisneySea in the world!

Tokyo Disneysea Article Cover Image

Tokyo DisneySea might be Tokyo Disneyland’s immediate neighbour, but the two parks couldn’t be worlds apart! For instance, did you know Mickey has a teddy toy of his own and there’s an entire section of the park dedicated to him?

If the fact that DisneySea is the only one of its kind isn’t enough to convince you to visit, these 10 other reasons will!

1. It’s home to unique Disney characters like Duffy!

Who exactly is Duffy and why is he at Tokyo DisneySea?

Created solely as a character for Disney parks, Duffy is actually Mickey’s stuffed bear companion! This friendly ball of fluff debuted in 2002 at various Disney parks in a rainbow of colours but didn’t gain popularity until 2005, when DisneySea officially welcomed Duffy by allocating a section of the park all to himself!

You can only find Duffy plushies and other paraphernalia at Tokyo Disneyland, DisneySea and Hong Kong Disneyland, although many flock to Tokyo DisneySea especially for Duffy and his furry pink friend Shellie May. In fact, Duffy’s own home – Cape Cod – can be found there! Be sure to say hello to this adorable teddy bear when you visit!

Duffy and Shellie May

Plus, if you haven’t already noticed, there’s a gigantic nod to Mickey on the bottom of their feet and on the markings on both Duffy’s and Shellie May’s faces!

2. They have rides you cannot find anywhere else

20,000 Leagues Under the Sea

Whoever said Disney park rides are for children haven’t tried the rides at Tokyo DisneySea! Apart from being incredibly unique, the rides are also faster with bigger thrills that adults will probably enjoy more than the kids themselves!

Toy Story Mania

Source

Toy Story Mania is one of the highlight attractions of the park with snaking queues for this ride’s FASTPASS forming the moment the park’s doors fly open! Also, with Woody’s mouth as an entrance, this eye-catching attraction is hard to miss.

Enter into a carnival world as one of Andy toys and stand a chance to “toss” items like bananas and balloons at on-screen targets!

Raging Spirits Roller Coaster

Source

Another must-try would have to be the Raging Spirits Roller Coaster. This ride takes visitors through ancient ruins based off the Disney animated film The Emperor’s New Groove. With an epic 360-degree loop, this ride certainly isn’t for the faint-hearted!

We could go on and on with rides that are pretty impossible to cover all in a day, so a two-day pass is always a good idea!

3. Aladdin and Ariel have castles here!

Ariel’s Castle

Unlike the usual castles you’d expect to find like Cinderella’s or Sleeping Beauty’s, Tokyo DisneySea features palaces and castles of other characters like Aladdin and Ariel as well! Also, these castles look extra magical after the sun sets, which just gives you another reason to stay longer in the park!

King Triton Statue

Ariel’s castle at Mermaid Lagoon features every colour of the sea and has more kid-friendly rides. The castle also features a statue of King Triton at the entrance because what better way to welcome visitors to a land under the sea without the son of Poseidon himself greeting you, right?

Arabian Palace

Source

Another palace we must mention would have to be the Arabian Palace at the Arabian Coast. With domes, detailed architecture and majestic colours that look like they’re straight out of the Aladdin movie, fans of this 1992 classic would be falling in love the moment they step in!

The main star of this attraction would have to be the 2-storey merry-go-round: the Caravan Carousel. This ride features Genie seats that are so popular the cast members have to give out cards to allocate seats!

4. There’s only one DisneySea in the world

Mysterious Island

Source

DisneySea truly sets itself apart with its nautical themed decor and unique rides and characters found nowhere else in the world. There is only one DisneySea of its kind amongst all the Disney parks and it’s also the third most visited theme park in the world!

The park even has seven “ports of call” that include the American Waterfront, Port Discovery, Mermaid Lagoon and more. Even though there are similar rides at Tokyo DisneySea such as the Tower of Terror, the story and concept behind the ride is completely different from its U.S. counterpart!

5. It has its very own volcano that actually erupts every few hours

Mount Prometheus

Source

Mount Prometheus, as it is called, is the majestic volcano that stands in DisneySea’s Mysterious Island. This iconic landmark is so massive it can be viewed right from Porto Paradiso.

Built in reference to the novel of the same name, this island is actually Captain Nemo’s lair and is also known as Vulcania Island from the Disney movie 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea!

Klook Pro-tip: Wait till nightfall and watch the volcano comes to life!

If you’re wondering if you can ride the volcano, then the answer is yes, you definitely can! Mount Prometheus houses one of the most famous rides in Tokyo DisneySea – Journey To The Centre Of The Earth!

Hop on board the subterranean tram and venture underground with countless sharp turns, sudden drops and the occasional hot steam! Did we also mention there may or may not be a sudden volcanic eruption midway through your ride?

6. There’s a Disney hotel inside Tokyo DisneySea itself

Hotel Miracosta

Source

Unlike other Disneyland parks around the world, Tokyo DisneySea actually has a hotel sharing the same grounds as the park itself, meaning you can go to bed still immersed in Disney magic!

Hotel Miracosta in Mediterranean Harbor is the first hotel to be located within a Disney park and features 502 rooms, each carefully designed to cater to the Disney theme, making it possible for you to actually wake up in the happiest place on earth.

Hotel Miracosta

Source

Aside from having an exclusive entrance to the park, the guests at Hotel Miracosta get to enjoy first class views of the daily shows and night parades, including the fireworks display! Also, some rooms offer amazing views of Mount Prometheus as well!

Do note that room rates increase with the views, so if you’re looking to wake up with Mouth Prometheus in one direction and picturesque landscapes on the other, be prepared to break the piggy for it! It is a luxury hotel after all!

Disney Monorail

Source

Hotel guests are also entitled to unlimited rides on the Disney Resort Line Monorail, a.k.a. the adorable mode of transportation to Tokyo DisneySea that features Mickey Mouse handrails and windows!

7. Instagrammable foods that are almost too cute to eat

Scrump mochi

Source

It’s no secret that Disney parks offer the most adorable food you can find, but Tokyo DisneySea has some unique food of its own you can’t find anywhere else!

From steamed buns and Gyoza Buns to Milk Tea Popcorn and Mochi, the foods at DisneySea are uniquely infused with the local Japanese flavours, as well as the culture that seems to effortlessly incorporate cuteness into everything.

Popcorn Vendor

One thing that is definitely unique would have to be the Milk Tea Popcorn, available at the DisneySea’s American Waterfront. Milk Tea is a widely favoured drink not just in Japan, but the whole of Asia, so it’s almost a must to incorporate this iconic drink into the form of popcorn, right?

For those who don’t quite have a sweet tooth, there are several other unique flavours to choose from that include Sea Salt, Curry, Black Pepper and more!

Duffy Head Ice Cream

Source

As we mentioned before, Duffy IS the main face of Tokyo DisneySea, so what’s a list of DisneySea’s food without including something of Duffy’s? Here at Tokyo DisneySea, take a bite off the Duffy Ice Cream Sandwich, also available at American Waterfront. Almost as big as your palm and highly Instagrammable, eating this adorable delicacy can prove to be a challenge!

8. Unlike the other Disney parks, the parades here are held on water

DisneySea parades

Truly living up to its name, the parades in Tokyo DisneySea take place on water and not on land. There are usually about 4 parades that take place every single day and they’re always very popular! In fact, guests can be seen securing a good viewing spot from as early as 45 minutes before the shows begin!

One parade that you should not miss would have to be Fantasmic, a parade that takes place at night and also the biggest parade in Tokyo DisneySea. This 20-minute long spectacle held at Mediterranean Harbor features all main Disney characters including Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, Pluto and more. Visitors can expect tons of lights, lasers, fireworks and more in this theatrical skit that serves as the perfect way to end your DisneySea experience!

9. They have excellent cast members

DisneySea’s gorgeous design, food and rides aren’t just the only reasons why it is ranked as one of the best theme parks in the world. What really makes an experience at Tokyo DisneySea unlike any other would have to be their adorable cast members that never seem to break out of character!

These dedicated cast members sure prove that Japan has undeniable world class customer service! From walking you to your designated location to perfectly portraying Disney characters, the cast members at DisneySea may not speak the best English, but are ever-so-ready to ensure that you get the best experience you deserve here!

10. The best reason of all? The guests!

Matching outfits at DisneySea

Source

Believe us when we say, that a trip to Tokyo DisneySea isn’t complete without bumping into a group of park go-ers donning matching outfits.

Whether it’s a group of young girls with adorable Minnie Mouse dresses or an elderly couple with matching Mickey headbands, DisneySea is decorated with enthusiastic guests that make the Disney park experience all the more enjoyable.

Also, these guests are also the ones dancing along to the parades and are definitely not shy when asked for pictures because what’s a good outfit without taking a good #OOTD shot? Of course, it’s highly recommended for you to join in the fun and dress up in your very own version of a Disney costumer as well!
