If you know me, you know I love Disney. Going to Disneyland is on par with a beach vacation (especially if it’s a new-to-me Disneyland!). Tokyo actually has two separate Disney’s – Disneyland and DisneySea. The second is exclusive to Tokyo and was hard to pass up. But Disneyland!!

I immediately fell in love with Tokyo Disneyland because of the outfits. Groups of 2-6 were completely coordinated! Whether they were dressed alike (as seen in the above photos) or just coordinating by dressing as different members of the same Disney movie, ugh, it was energizing and gave the whole park an extra umph!

The merchandise was a world apart.

Jay captured one of my favourite photos of the trip right after it stopped raining (which didn’t stop anything at all at the park!)

After a full day of Disneyland, we had walked over 20,0000 steps and we mentioned this to our travel companion (who is a grinch and did not want to go to Disneyland with us). He swiftly recommended a 24 hour massage parlor across the street from our AirBnB which he had already visited once that morning after we left for Disney. All three of us got 60 minute massages at nearly 2 AM and I kid you not… I slept for about half of the massage. The masseuse had to wake me up to get me to flip over and then you know, leave. It was a relaxing way to end our trip!
