  • A teaser mini report from TDR

    Hi all! I just got back to my hotel here in Narita, after a most enjoyable afternoon at TDR. Gorgeous day...sunny and a bit cold and breezy. Lovely evening with a croissant moon and Venus right over Mt. Prometheus and Cinderella castle.

    Ok... first up, both parks were very crowded today.

    News from TDL: All of the refurbishings being done around Adventureland and Westerland are finished. All the buildings look great in their new coats of paint and other ornamental touches. POTC has reopened and I rode it, but didn't see much difference than before.. except that this one is still the original unpolitically correct version.. just like I like it. Today was also the last day of this year's Princess Days event, and I got to enjoy the very last performance of Minnies' Tiara of Dreams... Zeek! Take note.. Prince Phillip did not disappoint! *scheeeeeen!!!* Finally, they have some new pyro shells in the Disney magic in the Sky fireworks show. Oh one more thing... the new Dreamlights floats... Cinderella's float is stunning. Monsters Inc float is state of the art wizardry...introducing the same technology we got at Astroblasters (the facial projection of Buzz) on the character of Mike. Look closely and see Mike and Surly (is that his name?)'s eyes blink and move. Stunning. The nemo float is cute but Crush's float steals the show. Awesome dudes!!!
    They also have several new costumes in the parade for the chorus girls and I spotted Lilo and Stitch in the finale as well.

    Now... over to TDS. The new sign went up on Sindbad Storybook adventures'main entrance... and there were 7 (seven!!!) OLC managers checking out the finished product and taking photos as well.. Had my curry sampler as well for dinner... heaven! Oh... they also have installed what appeared to be a photo spot near the entrance to Sindbad's ride. It was covered behind some plants but TDLFAN managed to get pass that and bring you a photo which will be posted later this week... along with a few hundred others from TDR and HKDL. That is... if you all behave. Lastly... I have said this before and will say it again... TDS has got to have the best atmosphere of any of the Disney parks.. I just LOVE*LOVE*LOVE walking around the park and taking in the sounds and sights. Truly magical.

    Well that's about it for this mini-report. I will try to have photos posted later after the weekend. Good night from Japan.

    Close, his name is Sully for short. Full name is James P. Sullivan.

          I know the Japanese excel at baked goods, but this is ridiculous.

          Seriously, keep reporting, I'm loving it.

          How is staying in Narita working out for you? I notice there are often really good hotel deals out there.

            Sounds like the new floats are kicking butt in the name of entertainment technology. As usual with most of the things that come out of TDR and OLC. Can't wait to see pictures of them!

            So was Sindbad open or not when you went?

                Actually, I use phonetics to test you all to see if you really really really are reading thru these reports.. since I am concidering quitting posting them. No use for me to spend time reporting and posting photos when most people go to such sites as DeepDisney, where they do the same and it's their job.

                How is staying in Narita working out for you? I notice there are often really good hotel deals out there.
                I do not advise staying in Narita area. Too far away to get to TDR and too much hassle traveling to/from TDR. The only reason why I am in a Narita Airport hotel is because as an airline crew at work, my company pays for my accomodations. So I am there for free. But honestly... I would not stay (and never have stayed) in Narita when visiting TDR or Tokyo on vacation.
