I”d been waiting for this adventure since I was a child. Yeah! You heard it Right. Going to Disney was my longtime dream. And it’s quite lucky enough that I had this once in a lifetime chance to celebrate my 25 Birthday here in Disney .
It’s Disney Baby!
8:15 am when we arrived at Tokyo Station. We never had been this excited before.
Actually, we don’t know what’s the exact location of train station going to Disney. We just know the name – It’s Mahima Station.
Kaya sinabi ko sa kanila na sundan na lang natin ang mga may Mickey Mouse Shirt. Naniniwala talaga ako na sila ang magtuturo ng tamang daaan.
At hindi naman kami nag kamali, pagkatapos lang ng 20 minutes na lakarin ay nakapunta na kami sa Mahima Station.
May roon two lines sa Mahima Station – Rapid Train and Regular Train. Rapid train will take you 15 minutes while the Regular Train will take you around 22 minutes going to Disney. Ang napagdesisyunan ay ang unang train na lang na dumating ang sasakyan namin.
Sa Mahima station din namin nameet si Kuya Japanese (Friend nila Goldie and Lannie). Siya din ang naging instant tour guide namin habang namamasyal sa Disney.
For the information of everyone, There are two Disney Park in Japan – Disney Land and Disney Sea. Based on my Friends, Disney Land is more of a childish adventure where you will have the chance to interact with different Disney Characters like Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, Pluto and Beautiful Disney Princesses. On the other hand, Disney Sea is more onto thrilling adventures where you can ride many Disney amusement park theme like Indiana Jones, Tower of Terror and Mermaid Lagoon.
Quarter to 8:00 am when we arrived at Mahima Station where Disney Started to unfold. From here, you can ride another train going to Disney Sea or take a walk (It will take you for at least 30 minutes).
Sumakay ulit kami ng train but this time we felt the lovely ambiance of Disney. Ramdam namin ang Presensiya ni Mickey Mouse sa Train. Ang astig lang! hehe.
Habang nakasakay kami sa train ay tiningnan ko ulit ang aking ticket. Bumulong ako ng mahina’t masayang tono ng boses – “This is it!. Finally..”.
Pagdating namin sa main entrance, bumungad sa amin ang napaka habang Pila. Sabi na nga ba, dapat mas inagahan pa namin ang pagpunta. We take our lane and wait for our chance to go inside.
And the long lane is worth the wait . In the main entrance, The Disney Globe welcome us with a vivid of enlightenment.
Ang season ng Disney sa Month ng September to October ay Halloween Theme. Kaya Medyo natakot ako ng konti noong Umpisa. hehe.
Sobrang Daming tao ang bumulaga sa amin pagpasok. Talagang Siksikan sa may bukana ng Park. At dito na nagstart ang pag lead ni Kuya Japanese sa mga rides na hindi daw dapat namin mamiss.
Tinuruan nya kami ng mga tamang techniques para masakyan lahat ng rides dito sa Disney Sea. Ang isang tips na binahagi niya sa amin ay ang tamang pag gamit ng Fast Pass. Ang Fast Pass ay isang ticket kung saan pede mong makuwa every two hours. Ito ay magbibigay sayo ng lubusang kapangyarihan para maka Pila sa VIP Lanes. If you will hop into all the rides in Disney Sea, having well organize plan is indeed the best thing to do so.
Here’s the Map of Disney Sea:
It consist of 7 theme port: Mediterranean Harbor, American Waterfront, Port Discovery, Lost River Delta, Arrabian Coast, Mermaid Lagoon and Mysterious Island.
Pumunta kami sa Tower of Terror para kumuwa ng Fast Pass. Nong una kinakabahan kami kung pano kami kukuwa non, pero sa dulo ng ticket booth ng Fast Pass ay meron naman mga crew na mag guide sayo to get it for the first time. Pwede rin isang tao na lng ang kumuwa ng Fast Pass, Basta ibigay nyo lang ang entrance ticket niyo sa kanya.
Pagkatapos non ay dumiretso kami sa Journey to the Center of the Earth.
Pumila kami ng 1.5 hours dito. Ang tagal di ba?. Minsan gusto ko na bumalik papunta sa ibang mga attractions. Ngunit, Thank God at inuna namin ang rides na ito. For me, It is one of the greatest rides here.
Habang nakapila, bubulagain ka ng mga caverns with office desks and lab materials where the crew have been studying for their adventures.
It also showcased an unforgettable scene like forest mushroom with cute little creatures, a Dragon that would make you jump in your sit and a thrilling and spectacular special effects. The adventures was awesome and No doubt about it – you will certainly get another Fast Pass to ride it once again.
After this jaw-breaking adventure, we hurriedly went to Tower of Terror to use our first Fast Pass.
Sumakay kami ng Disney Electric Train para mas mapabilis ang biyahe. Magandang Experience din yung Train kasi nakita namin ang ilang lugar ng disney at nagbigay iyon ng boost sa aming excitement para masakyan lahat ang Rides.
Noong una, parang ayoko talaga sumakay sa Tower of Terror. haha Para kasi sa akin nakakaboring makakita ng mga Ghost.
History (Quoted from Disney)
In New York, 1912, stands the hotel known as the “Tower of Terror,” so called after the mysterious disappearance of its owner in 1899. Now, the New York City Preservation Society has finished restoring the infamous hotel, and started giving tours to the public. But what happens when you take the elevator to the top floor…?
All who enter the Elevator – Beware the Curse!
This ride is a free-fall type through pitch Darkness. And what’s the difference in normal Free Fall Rides? It will take you to an adventure with different floors of the Tower where the story of the Hotel Unfolds.
Yeah, It’s scary! I tried to open my eyes but there’s a exaggerated reactions in my mind that the elevator will hunt us with Ghost and Zombies. haha.
Nonetheless, I felt courageous when we reached the Top of the Tower where you can see the overview of Disney Sea Theme Park.
Tips: Make a Great Pose when you reach the Top because there’s camera that wants to capture all of your screams haha.
At dahil first time namin, nahuli si Sir Remar(The Guy in the Middle) na takot na takot at hindi mapakali sa kanyang Upuan. peace.
Pagkatapos ang nakaka-Heart Attack na Tower of Terror, Naglunch kami sa Disney Canteen. Medyo mahaba lahat ng Pila sa mga canteen lalo’t lunch time kaya it’s advisable to bring your own pack lunch. Pede naman magdala ng lunch box sa loob basta hindi lang Bulky masyado ang itsura para makalusot sa guard sa may entrance.
I also advice to bring a lot of Water because Bottled Water here is very expensive.
Ang Next na spot na pinuntahan namin ay ang Storm Rider. Habang nag assemble kami sa pagpunta sa Storm Rider, Si Kuya Japanese ay nagprisinta na kumuwa ng Fast Pass para sa Raging Spirit.
Can you diffuse the Storm ? (Quoted from Disney)
The Center for Weather Control has invented the “Storm Diffusion Device,” which can diffuse storms when detonated inside the powerful center of a storm. There just happens to be a huge storm approaching! Board a StormRider, buckle up, and ride into the center of the storm!
Para sa akin, Ang Storm Rider ang may pinaka-unforgettable na architecture sa Disney. Mahilig kasi ako sa Astronomy nung bata ako kaya seeing this kind of buildings gives me a scenic view of what NASA looks like.
Pag pasok namin sa loob, Kami ay ginulat ng napaka Hi-tech na missile. Based on story, ang Missile na ito ang gagamitin ng mga Storm Rider para ma-diffuse ang storm.
I want to give a credit to Storm Rider because It’s the only ride in Disney that offers subtitles while they are explaining the mechanics.
Pumasok kami sa Loob dala dala ang Pag asang Ma-diffused ang parating na kalamidad sa Lugar.
Kami ay sumakay sa isang Fighter Plane. Feel na Feel namin ang galaw ng Air plane. Sa umpisa ay parang ginagala nya lang kami sa napaka gandang scenery ng dagat at bundok pero habang papalapit kami sa Storm, unti-unting napalitan ng Heart-Beating Scene ang nakita namin.
Ang Best Part ay nong tamaan ng kidlat ang aming sasakyan kaya bigla-bigla na lang kami ginulantang ng Missle sa may overhead namin na biglang tumusok galing sa sumabog na Fighter Plane. Talagang Nagulat ako. Akala ko kasi ay matatamaan na kami nong Missile (For Real). At doon na nag start ang aming kalbaryo. Unti unting nag crash ang Plane na sinakyan namin sa gitna ng dagat. Bigla na lang kami nabasa, parang bang part talaga kami ng Plane Crash na iyun. At dahil sa excitement na naramdaman ko, Hindi ko matandaan kung pano namin na-diffuse ang Storm. haha Ang slow ko lang talaga maka Pick Up ng mga pangyayari.
Tips: Kung ayaw ninyong mabasa, Sa bandang Gilid kayo umupo.
I think ang concept ng Storm Rider ay magandang implement sa Pilipinas dahil maraming mga Bagyong pumapasok sa bansa natin. Hopefully, ma-acquired din natin ang gantong technology ng Japan. hehe. Naniniwala talaga ako na may storm rider sa Japan kaya bihira sila masalanta ng malalakas na bagyo. Ang Theory ko, habang nasa pacific pa lang ang bagyo ay pinapasabog nila yun para mahina na ito pag nag-Land Fall sa kanilang territory.
Ang Next na Pinuntahan namin ay ang Indiana Jones at adventure of the crystal skull. For me, This is the most and the Best Ride in Disney that I’ve experience so far.
Expect the Unexpected in this Temple Tour (Quoted from Disney)
Paco, friend of Dr. Indiana Jones, has organized temple tours in search of the “Fountain of Youth” — unbeknownst to Dr. Jones! Now’s your chance, so hurry up and take the tour before he finds out!
But wait. The temple’s vengeful guardian spirit, the Crystal Skull, is not happy about this at all. When the spirit’s anger is unleashed, will you get out alive!?
Hop in! And the Road Truck will juggle you up and down upon exploring into the ruins. The Place where so dark that a sudden scene of mummies, scorpion, and spiders will make you scream with your highest pitch. haha. I love to hear the scream of my friends. And so am I. peace.
The most Thrilling Scene is when a Fire Spread to our ways. I was in shock. I almost felt that I was going to die that time.
And the Climax started when we were chased by a Rolling Stone. And after That, All I can remember was “how GREAT this Ride is and will be”.
Thinking about it now still gives me Goosebumps.
Our next Attraction is to visit Mickey Mouse. Disney is not Disney if you will not have the chance to Hugged and Kissed Mickey Mouse, Pluto and Donald Duck.
We walked in haste going to where Mickey Mouse would be.
Unlike Disney Land, Disney Sea only offers only limited time for Mickey Mouse, Pluto, Minnie Mouse and Donald Duck interaction. For this reason, you need to check out first their schedule on what time they are available in their photo booth.
After a Starstruck feelings in a Photo Shoot with Mickey Mouse. We go to Mermaid Lagoon and Get a Fast Pass for Magic Lamp.
But during our way to Mermaid Lagoon, We met a very Cute Group of Japanese Girls. We didn’t miss any chance to have a photo with them.
We were so lucky that time when we were able to watch Disney Street Parade. I felt the Fiesta Season here in Philippines when i saw their dance.
We reached Mermaid Lagoon around 4PM.
Medyo Pagod na kami ng time na ito. hehe Mahirap din palang pilitin sakyan lahat ng rides sa Disney. My advice is not to do all the Theme Park Rides. Take your time. Interact with the Japanese. and Enjoy yourself all the things that Disney Sea has to offer.
Pag pinilit at minadali mo ang pamamasyal sa Disney ay mapapagod ka at hindi mo mapapansin ang mga munting bagay na dahilan kung bakit binansagang “Disney Japan is the Most Beautiful Theme Park in the world.”
Mermaid Lagoon is the Best Place for Kids. It offers cute rides that will take you to a journey under the sea.
Habang nililibot namin ito, kami ay namangha sa Ilaw at itsura ng mga Rides.
So, I suggest to go to 20, 000 Leagues Under the Sea.
Search for Atlantis, the lost world submerged under the sea. (Quoted from Disney)
This continent of legend, said to have been home to an ancient, advanced civilization, sank to the bottom of the ocean long ago. Some say the people of this world lived on and adapted to the world beneath the waves. Captain Nemo is recruiting a brave and trusty crew to join him in his search for the lost world of Atlantis. Will you join him?
20, 000 Leagues Under the Sea is a very unique Ride. You will ride a submarine that will let you see the world beneath the ocean’s floor. For me, The concept of this Park is remarkable. You are not actually going beneath the water but the feeling and special effects that you can see is more likely the actual ocean floor of the sea. You will see colorful Jelly Fish, Mermaid Man, Sea Snakes and many more Unique creatures of the Sea.
Next na pinuntahan namin ay ang Raging Spirit.
Nong Una, 4 lang ata kaming may gustong sumakay doon dahil takot ang mga Girls sa mga Buwis Buhay na mga Rides – Raging spirit is a normal Roller Coaster with 360 degree course.
Medyo nakaka guilty rin nong Pinush namin ang Raging Spirit dahil si Joy and Lani ay sobrang Hindi mapilit sumakay sa mga gantong Rides.
Like nong Tower of Terror, Hindi sila nagtry man lang pumasok sa loob kaya hindi nila na enjoy ang Part na yun ng Disney.
Ngunit, Si Joy ay nagbago ang isipan in the Last Minute para sa Raging Spirit. Magaling kasi ang Persuasion ni Kuya Japanese. Pero si Lani ay hindi talaga napilit kahit anong Gawing Pagsayaw at Pagkata ni Kuya Japs.
Nabitin lang ako sa Ride na ito dahil nakulangan ako sa Thrilling Part. Mas Okay sana if mga Sampung 360 Degrees ang included sa Tracks. haha .
Ang itsura ng Raging Spirit ay Ancient Roller Coaster. Noong una parang natatakot ako dahil ang Rail Tracks ay mukhang gawa sa Kahoy. Haha Ang naiisip ko ay may chance na bumigay ito kapag sobrang daming sumasakay.
But I assure you that it is safe trip and amazing coaster experience. Don’t worry and Face your Fears!
After our spirits were ripped off by this Roller Coaster, We decided to take a break and look for our souls. haha.
Dito namin nakilala si Keiko-san,
Nong una nahihiya kami magpapicture sa kanya, pero nong bigla siyang nag english fluently ay hindi namin maiwasan ni Emman na makipag-usap. Bihira lang kasi makatagpo ng Japanese Cuties na magaling mag english kaya ni-grab na namin ang opportunity na makilala siya.
Keiko-san ay isang Student na nagtake ng Part Time Job in Disney for almost a Year. Tinanong niya kami kung anong impression namin sa Disney at kung nakapunta na kami sa Disney Land. Sobrang saya talaga ng time na yon, for almost 3 months na pagtira at pakikihalubilo sa mga Japanese, Siya lang talaga ang nag offer na magandang Conversation. Na-amaze talaga kami ni Emman. Ngunit, Hindi na namin kinulit si Keiko-san dahil on duty siya that time. Sayang talaga at hindi kami nagkaroon ng mas maraming bonding moments. Pero ang Best Part ay noong binigay niya ang facebook account niya. Huwaw, First Japanese Cuties that will be soon to be our Friend.
Hindi namin namalayan ni Emman na napahiwalay na kami sa aming mga kasama kaya pumunta na lang kami sa next Theme Park na naka-set – Magic Lamp Theater
The Genie Empowered Magic Show (Quoted from Disney)
The “greatest magician in the world,” Shaban, presents the greatest show ever inside this tent pitched in the palatial courtyard of Arabian Coast. This is going to be great!
But his partner, Genie, is nowhere to be seen…. Could this be the work of that charlatan Shaban?
Para kaming nagtravel sa Middle East nong pumasok kami sa Arabian Coast. Sobrang ganda ng mga architecture. Ang naalala ko sa Park na ito ay si Alladin and Jasmine riding the Magic Carpet.
7pm ng magkita-kita kami sa harap ng Magic Lamp Theater.
The Magic Show is very Funny with a touch of 3D Visual Effects. However, We did not understand most of the Jokes because it was presented in Japanese Language. That’s the reason why, if we saw them laughing, we also laughed louder than them. haha
Ang sabi ni Kuya Japs, meron naman daw English Show ang Magic Lamp Theater pero kailangan mong alamin ang Schedule para dun ka mag avail ng Fast Pass Tickets.
Quarter to 7pm na nong umalis kami sa Arabian Coast.
Fireworks Display is around 8:30pm so we still have a 45 minutes break to visit some disney store.
At exactly 8:30pm, The Fireworks lighted up the night sky. And It was Superb!
Then the Disney Water Parade also called Fantasmic followed with magnificent presentation of Disney Characters – The Fight between Good and Evil forces in Mickey’s dreams with stunning effects of Pyrotechnics, Colorful Laser, a Snake, a Huge Dragon and Loud Beating Instrument of Disney Songs.
For me, this was the Highlight Show of all Disney Sea Theme Park. I was stunned a million times of arrow while watching this Theatrical Disney Exhibition. .
The best Spot to watch it is above the Tower of Mysterious Island, The Sidewalks of Mediterranean Harbor and the Front of Disney Resort Hotel.
Here’s the Clip of my Disney Adventure:
After Fantasmic, we went again to Disney store to buy some souvenir.
I was surprised to see the Night of Disney. It was very elegant and beautiful.
We wrap up our adventure at Disney Globe where we take our Last Stand from the Most Beautiful Theme Park in the World of Disney.
Thank you Lord for this once in a life time Journey that you have given us!
More Birthdays to Celebrate! and More Friends to meet!
