2014 Nov: Japan: Chiba (Tokyo): Disneysea

Tokyo DisneySea (東京ディズニーシー) is a 176-acre (71.22 ha) theme park at the Tokyo Disney Resort located in Urayasu, Chiba, Japan, just outside Tokyo. [Reference]

This year's theme is Disney Sea:  "Christmas Wishes".

Right after I pass through the ticket gates, I already saw Minnie's Photo-Op queue. I continue my journey and saw the start of the Holiday Greeting show, since it's too crowded, I went back and waited in the queue.

Guide: For how many persons?  This is a Mickey or Minnie line.  Not for both.  We are not sure if its Mickey or Minnie or both. 1 camera will be 1 photo only.  

So it's means one time opportunity, not unless you get into the queue again.  During my turn, the photographer is so nice, since she requested me to remove my shades for the second photo - at least I got more than 1.

The character opportunity queue is located properly near the character hideout.  While on queue I saw Chip, Donald and Daisy.

Don't burden yourself in going to the stores, since there is Ikspiary and Bon Voyage Malls in Resort  Gateway station near Maihama, where you can buy your stuff before going back home.

Getting there: Take JR Musashino Line, drop-off at Maihama station.  Walk towards Resort Gateway station.  This is single direction/roundtrip monorail that go towards Disneyland station, Bayside station, then Disneysea station.
