I found it better than WDW but that might be just a personal preference. If anything, you can hear the Toy Story characters speak in Japanese during the game. The wait shouldn't be long if you can run fast, maybe 30 minutes to 40 minutes if you can't depending on the crowds. If the line is already backed up outside of the ride area then maybe you or your son, assuming he is alright with it, can go get ToT fastpasses.
    Thank you for your reply.

    I've done Toy Story twice in WDW. The first time was with my MIL in a wheel chair and the second time was with FP+. I've never done the full queue. I know, I've missed the best part of the line.

    I would like to experience the ride in Japanese. The wait time scare me. We may have to make a decision when we get to the park and see the level of the crowd.

      The problem with TSM in Tokyo is that they let people run, so if you are not a sprinter, you will devote quite a bit of time to standby or waiting just get an FP. Almost everyone lining up in the morning is running to TSM. Last time I was there, we were alone going to Journey which was the super-headliner before TSM opened. The idea that you can just waltz right in first thing was too enticing for us to pass up.

        That at was the same experience I had on my last visit. The longest lines in the morning were:
        1) TSM
        2) ToT
        3) Raging Spirits
        4) Indy
        5) Journey

        First 3 were about 2 hours each, Indy was around 90-100, and Journey was a walk-on the first day (weekday) and 35 minutes the second (packed weekend). I think Journey gets shorter waits in part because there isn't anything else in the area besides 20k Under the Sea which isn't very popular. On the other hand the other big attractions pair up (TSM and ToT, RS and Indy) and you have people getting FP for one and doing standby for the other.

        They are almost impossible to find. Peanut butter in general is hard to find; what they sold in stores there would not be recognizable as peanut butter to foreigners. Yet most younger Japanese have tried or at least heard of Reese's. I think its a popular item for Japanese people to take back home and share with friends when they return from trips to the US.

          I ate at the Teddy Roosevelt Lounge on the SS Columbia once: it cost $14 for a tiny sandwich. One thin slice of cold roast beef on white break with a leaf of lettuce. Never been back. Should I try it again?
          Born in a shoebox and making the most of it.
