1 week in Tokyo - Day 3: DisneySea!!!!!

We checked weather forecast before departing. It was a rainy day, and we were thinking should we change to other day. Fortunately, we kept our plan. Even though we still need to queue for some attractions, there were a lot of attraction which we didn’t have to queue.

As soon as we reached, we bought hairbands at the entrance, which we regretted later when we found mickey ear hair pins were cheaper and cuter. Lesson 3: No Impulse Buying. Moreover, since we had to took them off when watching a show or taking a ride, the hairbands ended up lying in our bags after taking the off few times. Last Christmas, I ate smoked turkey leg in Disneyland, and this time, I ate smoked chicken leg in Disney Sea. I preferred chicken XD
1200JPY each hairband Q.Q

Oishii chicken leg
We watched many shows in Disney Sea and this show is called “A Table is Waiting”, which they choreographed the dance according to food.
