I let the kids pick out one souvenir while we were waiting to get in. Smart people at Disney putting shopping right OUTSIDE the gates...
Once inside we immediately noticed that Disney did it right at Disney Sea. We were a little disappointed at Tokyo Disneyland - it just didn't have that magical Disney spark, however Disney Sea was much different. We took a lot of pictures of the "scenery".
We met up with our friends the Ericson's and Chris was nice enough to take one of our few "family of five" pictures. It was nice that we had another family to switch off kids with. Kurt, Nancy, and Chris were able to go on the Tower of Terror and Journey to the Center of the Earth roller coaster with Levi the only brave (or tall enough) kid. :)
Avri was a champ on her first Disney outing. She spent most of it in her carseat, but she liked Turtle Talk (in Japanese) and the Genie show. :)
