Disneyland – The Place Where Dreams Come True
This is my first time visiting Tokyo Disneyland, the happiest place on earth. We had such a magical time there and so looking forward to visit this magical place again! Coincidentally this year is Tokyo Disney is celebrating its 35th Anniversary with a special anniversary event “Tokyo Disney Resort 35th ‘Happiest Celebration!” from April 15, 2018 through March 25, 2019. We’re at the right place at the right time 🙂
While planning for our Japan trip itinerary, I was deciding whether to go Disneyland, Disneysea or both. Finally, Wifey and I decided to just visit Disneyland this round and we’ll do another one trip to Tokyo for Disneysea (hopefully soon). And so a month before our trip, I bought our Tokyo Disneyland tickets from Klook, which is the best decision ever because we get to skip the crazy long queue and get in straight to the park.
Below are the highlights of our magical and happy moments at Tokyo Disneyland :-
In the train all ready for Disneyland!
Welcome to Tokyo Disneyland!
First, take a family photo at Tokyo Disneyland.
It’s seriously not easy to get good photos with toddlers! But it’s ok, as long as the adults look good 🙂
And then we spotted one of the cute piggy mascot from “The Three Little Pigs”.
Aiden got a little shy when it’s his turn to take photo with the piggy mascot.

TOKYO DISNEYLAND SNACKS
Popcorn and popcorn buckets are famous at Tokyo Disneyland. The popcorn carts are located at different locations in Tokyo Disneyland with each popcorn carts offering different flavors and designs of Disney popcorn buckets.
My favorite? Soy Sauce and Butter Popcorn!!! It’s salty, savory and super delicious!
Priced at 3200 yen, this new 35th Anniversary Mickey popcorn bucket is possibly the most expensive popcorn bucket.
To celebrate Tokyo Disney Resort 35th Anniversary, there’s a Special Purple Churro available at the Parkside Wagon. It’s a cotton candy flavored churro, sprinkled with purple sugar and wrapped with special 35th Anniversary packaging! Quite special and yummy.
When in Disneyland, you should really get a Smoked Turkey Leg to try. It’s smoky, hot and really hugeeee!!!
