Greetings from Tokyo Disney Resort!

Welcome…to Tokyo Disney Resort. (Read that like John Hammond in Jurassic Park.) We have made the pilgrimage to Japan to visit what many Disney fans regard as the pinnacle of the Disney theme park experience. Barring issues with our flights or our poor senses of direction, we are now at Tokyo Disney Resort to celebrate Tokyo Disneyland’s 30th anniversary, and to visit Tokyo DisneySea (where we will undoubtedly acquire at least 27 Duffy souvenirs).

We’re mostly disconnected from the rest of the world on this trip, but we (mostly Sarah) will be posting occasional photos to Instagram, assuming the modems we rented for our iPhones work. Further assuming that the nifty Instagram plugin works, you should be able to view our 20 most recent live photos from Tokyo Disney Resort on this post below. If for some reason photos don’t display below, or you want to see all of our photos from Japan (not just the Disney ones), follow us directly on Instagram: Sarah here or Tom here. Tokyo is 13 hours ahead of the east coast of the United States, so expect daytime and nighttime photos to be roughly reversed in terms of night and day back in the US.

In addition to these photo updates, we also have a few normal blog posts scheduled to post while we’re away. We’ll be sure to read your comments and reply to any questions you may have when we return.

For now, enjoy the Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea photos, and ‘See Ya Real Soon!’

    How cool your making the trip. I’ve heard so many great things about this resort. How long of a plane flight is that?

  9. Edgardo says:

    Ahhh. To be young and childless and travel at will! Have great fun in Japan and at TDR. Hope it lives up to what everyone says about it. It’s my request for a 40th birthday present from my family, so crossing fingers it happens. Enjoy and can’t wait for the photos and trip reports.

    You guys are so secretive! You didn’t even give your readers the slightest hint that you were heading to Tokyo! …I can’t wait for the Trip Report though – it’s gonna be the best one yet, I’m reckoning!

  12. Kevin says:

    That sounds like an awesome trip!

    No! Two words!


    If you’re in Tokyo, get a boatload of Shellie Mae bears! She doesn’t exist in the states unless a tourist brings her!

  15. Jessi says:

    We have just moved to northern Japan and are already planning our trip down to Disney, so I’m SUPER excited to see the Trip Report from you two :-)

  16. sarah says:

    Wow! So awesome you get to experience another Disney park. Enjoy and can’t wait for the report!

    Hi Tom and Sarah,

    Don’t know if you are still in Tokyo, but if you need any help with the language, making reservations, just e-mail me. I’m just down the road, 10 mins. away on the highway. This offer is most likely coming too late. Just for you to know your fans are around the world and willing to help!

  18. Tom Cooney says:

    My wife and I just returned from TDR for the 30th Anniversary and it blows anything else away… It is incredible.

  19. David says:

    I wonder if they made Partner’s Statue Walt kinda Japanese-looking on purpose…?

  20. Matthew says:

    Have ( hope you) had/have a great time! Sry for the delay in posting this :). By the way greetings from Disneyland California! I finally got my birthday trip!

  21. David L says:

    That’s awesome! Quick question though. Why is the first picture from Epcot?

  22. Kaitlin O. says:

    Woah. I’ve been following on instagram – it’s incredbile there! I hope you are enjoying every moment of it :)

    Tokyo Disney Resort pics are awesome..

  25. Benjamin says:

    Is it me or is it the lighting? Pictures are worth a thousand smiles aren’t they? Totally into taking pictures and there really is a contrast when pictures are taken someplace else than stateside, closer to Asia, pictures lose their sharpness.
