San Juan Family Caricature in Tokyo

Do they look like us?

Got this one done in Venus Fort, Odaiba. The artist has packages that you can pick and depends mainly on how many people he is going to draw. I think this one costs us more than 6000 Yen. Expensive but love it!



We were already getting hungry but the Jubilation Parade was to start in less than 40 minutes (starts at 1:25) so we decided to get a place in front of the Castle near the World Bazaar. To our surprise, there were already a lot of people sitting along the paths. Others had plastic mats to “reserve” their chosen location. Xianelle and I stayed behind and picked us a spot while Mavis bought us food. We had some Churros, soups, and breads. We were lucky to get front seats so read the tips, enjoy the photos and continuation of our day in Disneyland in the next post!

DisneyLand Tip: Timing is crucial along with your plastic mats (or any stuff that can reserve you an area). One hour before the parade starts, you are allowed to place your mats on the sidewalk. You can leave them there while you get on a ride (hopefully you got a FP) and come back 25 minutes before show starts or else, it’ll be too crowded. One more thing, people in front are asked to sit down so that others at the far back can also enjoy the show.

DisneyLand Tip: Position! Position! Position! If you want to get the photographs and video of the Jubilation Parade, the area in front of the Castle, near World Bazaar would be best. Stay on the side across the Castle as you’ll get to have more coverage once the floats start coming from the bend.

Monsters Inc., Ride and Go Seek

Monsters Inc., Ride and Go Seek

After watching “One Man’s Dream II –The Magic Lives On”, I hurried off to get Fast Passes to “The Haunted Mansion” while Mavis and Xiane took a restroom break and agreed to meet in front of Monsters, Inc. Ride and Go Seek as our FPs were almost up. Monsters, Inc. Ride and Go Seekwas much like Buzz Lightyear’s Astro Blasters but you’re waving flash light instead of a laser gun. The theming was great but having a FP means you’d be walking straight to the end of the line and not being able to fully appreciate the details of the waiting room/area. Still, I’d rather have a FP than wait for at least 30 minutes to get in a ride. Xiane enjoyed it as I’m sure you little ones would enjoy seeing Sully, Mike and Boo together!

DisneyLand Tip: As I was passing through Pooh’s Hunny Hunt on my way to get FP for “The Haunted Mansion”, the available time was already 10:40 PM. This was at exactly 12 noon! I wasn’t that interested with Pooh’s Hunny Hunt as the same was in Hong Kong Disney although in Tokyo, you get multiple paths instead of the linear one in Hong Kong. If you are with toddlers, you may want to get a FP for this early on as it is quite popular with the Japanese.

Love the Posters!
