Tokyo Disney, new students, shopping, classes  
So! I went to Tokyo Disney on the 27th and 28th of March! (*゚▽゚*) So exciting! It was so much fun and I took so many photos and didn't ride as many rides as I should have, but I ate a lot of food and many different flavours of popcorn and everything was amazing!

We had a couple of tickets to choose from for our own, though we only had two Minnies, that turtle....? from Finding Nemo, and Bambi! I called dibs on Bambi, obviously >.>;; The lines were so huge, we just had to choose the time with all the school graduation trips, didn't we? XD;; 

Anyway, we left on the night of the twenty-sixth and oh dear god do I loathe night buses. No sleep whatsoever. Ugh. Anyway, we got to the park at seven-ish, and got into the park before nine. Awesome. First thing first was to find an ATM as I had no money on me whatsoever. Unfortunately, Tokyo Disneyland isn't all that fond of foreign cards in their ATMs and I was stuck having to use my card in stores instead of cash which I could actually keep track of. Oh dear. 


The first ride we went on, at nine-ten in the morning, was the Pirates of the Caribbean one. There was a lot more English in it than I remember, and I spent so much of the ride cracking up because of what the characters were saying. Whenever it went dark Kin ended up clinging a lot though, I keep forgetting she's not fond of dark things and ghost things and such xD;;

Afterwards, we fastpassed some rides to come back to later and wandered around for a bit. We found the Queen of Hearts restaurant too♥


And then we ran into Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum. I got a hug from one of them, but unfortunately none of my friends have uploaded their Disneyland photos to Facebook so I can't steal it. ( ;∀;) I hope they upload them soon... 

Aftwerwards we wandered through some shops for a while... I bought so many Alice-related things. Oh dear god, it seemed like so much at the time, and probably is more than I should have bought, but whatever. Alice! Then we rode a Snow White related ride because it was there xD;;

After a while we went and had lunch at the Queen of Hearts restaurant♥ Then we ran into more characters near Snow White's Grotto place thing... >.>;;

It was slowly getting darker, so cue the lights and wanting of dinner xD;; We wandered around and bought souvenirs for people, losing each other a lot along the way (so glad for mobile phones, oh so glad), and then we went and ate waffles!

And then came the night parade! (My camera kept dying continuously at this point, but I tried to take as many photos as I could anyway... unfortunately, my camera wouldn't let me take a photo when Peter and Wendy were being all adorable and flirty, but I did get some shots before and after-ish... damn it camera, why do you die when I wanna take pictures of adorable people?)

And then came fireworks!

After that we managed to ride the teacups before having to leave to catch our bus to the hotel... where I crashed and died xD;;

All my day photos from Disney Sea seem to have disappeared somewhere... weird. Ah well. Anyway, we got to Disney Sea in time for a huuuuuge line, but whatever. We managed to make it inside well enough, and the first thing we did was fastpass Tower of Terror and then line up for hours and hours and hours waiting for Journey to the Centre of the Earth. The wait was so damn long, oh my god... and as pretty and wonderful as it was I really was expecting more drops from it (there was really only one huge one at the end and I leant over to look down at it as we went down... yeah, that was smart >.<).

We wandered around shopping and stuff for a while, didn't go on as many rides as we should have, but it was still a good day. The Tower of Terror was interesting! It had this whole cursed tiki plot and abandoned hotel thing and ugh, I wish I still had my photos... what the hell happened when I was copying everything to my computer? D: But yeah, it was so interesting... the drop itself wasn't what I expected, we were in an elevator with seats... compared to the one drop ride I went on in Wonderland back when it was open in Aus this was pretty tame. Still screamed though, but it wasn't like I was feeling like I was going to go flying out of the seat this time... and this time I had a floor unlike last time. Last time was scarier... >.>;;

I can barely remember Disney Sea actually because by the end of it my shoes were dying and my feet were killing me and I probably ate too much cause I felt so sick like I was going to throw up, but anyway... before the end of it xDD;; I managed to finish off my souvenir shopping and I even got myself a Duffy bear cause he's so cute and fluffy! 

We also had some horrible weather that broke the Alice umbrella I'd bought the day before at Disneyland, cue my devastation. The night performance was good though, even if they had to change it and cancel the fireworks because of the weather. (My camera was dying at this point again too -.-)


No long after that we had to go catch the night bus home, and ugh... I got like maybe one hour of sleep on that trip back. I hate night buses.

On the night of the 29th, I went to a live at SiX-DOG with Kyla, Devon, and Kosuke. That was fun☆ It was a free live and LYNX and Aireal Tram played first, and then a whole heap of high school bands started performing. We hung around for a while talking, and I made a friend. Yay xD;; It was also hilarious to hear everyone practice their English (≧▽≦) Though a lot of it ended up being swearing at each other lol 

Oh, forgot to mention, on the 23rd Jayne arrived at Chubu. Finally another Aussie! She's awesome and she also likes Alice Nine, yay!

Oh god this entry is getting so long xD;; Anyway, on Sunday I went shopping with Yuki and Jayne. We went to Sakae and Osu Kannon! I spent way too much on clothes xD;; But on the other hand, I have ridiculously adorable clothes now♥ and that's always a plus! No photos because my laziness is overwhelming me right now lol

On Monday, I got told I had to dress in lolita and come hand out flyers for the ESS club. I'm not even in the ESS club, but seeing as I have friends who are I agreed and helped out for four hours, though I really wasn't much help xD;; They were trying to convince the first years to join, but most of them were 'I'm bad at English', 'I have no interest in English', 'I hate English'. Oh dear xD;;

Yesterday, we had class orientation and I'm still in the middle class though the guys have progressed to it as well. Kyla's made it to the top class which has melded with the 'special students' class, joy. Ugh, here goes my irrational jealousy~~ Ah well, I'll get over it. I am happy for her (kinda), I'm just pissed at myself mainly I think. Either way we're both taking JLPT N2 again this year. Joy.

We also had a huge storm yesterday (though Tokyo had it worse, I hear), and I'm surprised the cherry blossoms survived it.

After storm:

If the LJ cuts don't work I'm really, really sorry for the huge-ass post.

Tiger Genie is so awesome! I've heard the Japanese love Disney, sometimes more than we do! I would love to go to Tokyo Disney. I love this post a lot!

There's Disney stuff everywhere here... especially Stitch. Every castle I've been to here so far has had at least something Stitch themed. You can also get little medal type things at the castles with Disney characters on them too.
