Tokyo Disneyland

Upon arriving at the resort, you will see signs for both parks. Disneyland is to your right. About a 5 minute walk will lead you to the entrance gates to Disneyland where u can purchase your tickets.

I came on a Monday and it was superpacked and extremely hot, even in october!

Once you're inside, it's a free for all- my recommendation is beeline towards getting your fastpasses!  They work just the same- find the rides on your map that have fast pass availability and make your way to the busiest ones (Monster's Inc being the most popular i think, Winnies Pooh Hunt, Buzz Lightyears Astro Blasters) and check the time they give you and make sure you're back at that ride at the time allotted. The popular ones go out fast. Some even "sold out" fast passes around noon.
Make sure you check out the different stations of popcorn. There's a little chart on the back of your map of what flavors they have available- Lots of fun flavors- like butter/soysauce, seasalt, caramel, chocolate, curry, strawberry, corn potage, honey. . They vary at each park. You can buy a good size small box or a souvenir container. I was there during HALLOWEEN month, so i found a really cool collapsible container with a Halloween theme which i got at the Tomorrow Land Terrace (Burger joint)

For a fun meal, i would definitely recommend checking out the Queen of Hearts Banquet Hall.- near the very back of the park near It's a Small World.
It is cafeteria style. The line outside can be long, but it moves quickly. But there's also a long line inside of people picking their food. But i don't think we were waiting for more than a total of 40 minutes.

Our meals: chicken salad and rotisserie chicken

I managed to ride on the following rides:
Spacemoutain, BuzzLightyears Astro Blasters, Snow White, Western River Railroad, Pooh's Honey Hunt, and Pirates of the Caribbean.I was super bummed my favorite ride peter pan was closed!

Cinderella's Fairy Tale Hall is worth checking out for it's beautiful artwork.

You can have your cinderella experience upstairs:

With it being so crowded and my companion not being able to ride most of the rides, it was hard to get a full day's worth.
But at the end of the day, we did get to catch some of the Electric Parade which is always a crowd pleaser!!!
