^^ One of Lucy’s fan clubs! 😉 She got stopped everywhere she went! Little blondie. ^^
^^ The best part about Tokyo Disneyland is the food! This Mickey Mouse pork bun was the BOMB! ^^
^^ The park has all different kinds of popcorn… Like, Curry!? It was SO GOOD. ^^
^^ The jungle cruise was sooooo funny in Japanese! We couldn’t understand a THING. ^^
^^ More amazing Disney food… Udon noodles with tempura! ^^
^^ Little Greta’s first tooth came in this trip, so she was chewing on everything! ^^
Our first day in Japan, we went to Tokyo Disneyland to stay awake with our jet lag! We landed the night before, and I didn’t feel nearly as crappy as I thought I would. It was so fun walking through the lit up street to get to our Airbnb! The excitement really set in, of where we were. We got settled into our adorable traditional Japanese house, and went right to bed. Lucy slept through the whole night and Greta struggled a little bit with the time change. By morning she had the master bedroom to herself, and Brad & I were squished in a twin bed! Ha! I only slept for about 4 hours, but I was still AMPED to go to Tokyo Disney! For weeks, Lucy has been talking about how she is going to say, “Konichiwa” to Mickey Mouse. 😉 We packed up our stroller and embarked on our adventure — Figuring out the metro with a stroller & kids! The streets of Tokyo are so quiet in the morning, I felt like we were the only ones talking hahaha. We got a little lost on the metro, and I looked at my phone thinking, “Crap, it’s probably noon and we’ve missed half of the day of Disney…” but to my surprise it was only 9am! YEAH! Gotta love that Asia jet lag. 🙂
We got to the park, and Lucy was SO excited. It was hilarious, because they had the most RANDOM characters there. It wasn’t Mickey, it was the vintage Three Little Pigs. Lucy was totally freaked out, but we forced her to say, “Konichiwa” to one of the pigs. We know she would leave, feeling way bummed if she didn’t get to say that to SOMEBODY! 😉 She nervously gave the pig a high five after, and of course, she bragged about it the whole rest of the trip. 😉
The lines were SO long (we’re talking 2 hours, people!), but luckily we scored some fast passes and enjoyed some food! The food was the bomb. Like Mickey Mouse pork buns, all flavors of popcorn (like curry!), boba drinks, mochi, and the yummiest noodle dishes. We watched the parade and it was hilarious hearing the characters sing in Japanese! And the backdrop with the giant castle was incredible. I know, I’m such a dork. So many couples were dressed up, all perfectly matching and all I have to say is #GOALS. There were so many groups of friends who were matching, too! So many of them went crazy over Lucy & Greta being so fair. Taking pictures and saying, “kawaii”! Lucy legit looked like a celebrity strutting around in her sunglasses, taking pictures with everyone!
We finished the day riding “Pooh’s Honey Hunt’ and it was by far the best ride there. Lucy was lucky, and got to ride twice because we got a stroller pass (Greta was sleeping). We got on the metro to head back to our Airbnb, and I could hardly keep my eyes open! I seriously think thats the most tired I’ve ever been in my life! We got back, and I don’t even remember crawling into bed. We all slept SO GOOD that night!
