Visiting a Disney Park in Japan was unlike any other Disney experience I’ve had thus far.
I’ve talked about cute-obsessed Japan before, and how from cleaning products to food, there’s no escaping the cute. So of course our visits Tokyo Disneyland and DisneySea were no exception.
The parks themselves had plenty of cute decorations and merchandise, but I expected that. What I didn’t expect? The people.
It doesn’t seem to matter if you are 5 or 50…here all ages sport their love of Disney right on their sleeve. Literally.
Guys, girls, adults, kids, whether you were alone or in a group– everyone was decked out in expensive Disney merchandise. Here it seems like how wealthy you are directly correlates to how many Duffy bears you own. (Especially since the normal teddy bear size runs about $50 USD per pop!)
Now I know some people who visit Disney Parks in the US or Hong Kong will dress up as well, but it just isn’t the same.
No, the people of Tokyo Disney take it one step further.
The People of Tokyo Disney
Girls dressed as Minnie Mouse hurry over to meet Pinocchio.
These girls both had matching accessories for them and their Duffy bears.
Even adults get in on the fun– excited to meet Scrooge McDuck!
Couples and friends alike, often stopped to take photos in front of cute Duffy decorations.
Couples love wearing “couples clothing”, even in Harajuku fashion.
Another happy couple collaborates with the girl wearing Minnie and Sallie Mae, and the boy wearing Mickey and Duffy.
A super cute collection, but that’s around $500 USD being toted around in that cart!
Accessorized and ready to spend the day at Disney.
This little princess did not want to get up from the glass slipper.
Minnie Mouse accessories galore.
