Tokyo DisneySea Guide: 2-Day Itinerary

Tokyo DisneySea Guide: 2-Day Itinerary

There are two parks in Tokyo Disney Resort: Disneyland and DisneySea. Since we only budgeted 2 days for Disney on our Japan trip, we decided to spend both of the days exploring the one and only – Tokyo DisneySea. It is known to be the best Disney park in the world, raved by numerous Disney fans; and it does not disappoint!

12 Days in Japan, Part 1: Tokyo, Hakone

12 Days in Japan, Part 1: Tokyo, Hakone

Visiting Japan during Sakura Season is both wonderful and stressful; hotel rooms are in extreme demand, with sky-high prices, and popular attractions are swarmed by visitors. Although planning ahead is a good idea when it comes to traveling, it’s more important to keep an open mind and be accommodative to any last-minute changes.
