If you had any doubt that I would visit Disneyland in Tokyo, please allow me to put that to rest. I’m not the type of girl who wants to get married in the castle and make my bridesmaids dress as Disney princesses – though I will totally come to your wedding and dress as Snow White at your request – but I do love a day at Disney, and luckily, so does Bobby. Many of you have even asked me if I live in Disney World, and the answer is yes/duh/obviously. I live in Minnie Mouse’s house (look how I’m right at home in her humble abode), which is quite a problem at Magic Kingdom, since they got rid of her house and the rest of Toon Town. Luckily, it’s still intact and lovely as ever in Tokyo, and freshly decorated for Halloween. If the whole famous mouse character/fashion plate thing doesn’t work out for Minnie, she certainly has a future in interior decorating. Oh, Minnie, is there anything you can’t do?
The best part of visiting Tokyo Disneyland was the Haunted Mansion, which was decked out to the theme of The Nightmare Before Christmas for the holiday season, and a close second was the myriad popcorn flavors and equally varied and adorable containers. I spent half the day hunting down the red bow to match my outfit, because I’m a logical adult who makes important and adult-like decisions. Actually, I take everything back: the best part of Tokyo Disney is that everyone gets dressed up in a theme for the occasion, and many of them go all out. As you can tell by my not-so-understated ensemble, I totally appreciate that commitment. Tokyo Disneyland, you just get me!
