The People of Tokyo Disney

The People of Tokyo Disney

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.

    I have been to Tokyo Disney Resort 3 times and 6 Duffy’s in a stroller is nothing. They love Duffy and often will set up to watch a parade with 10 or more Duffy’s all lined up to watch. They will even make their Duffy wave to characters in the parade. The outfits are great. Everyone loves Disney and shows who their favorite character is thru their dress or accessories.

    I love these pictures, seriously. CUTENESS OVERLOAD! It’s so weird to see even adults looking so sweet and cute. Insane. I can’t wait to finally visit Japan :)

      I can’t wait to read about when you finally visit Japan! It’s such an amazing country.

  22. September 5, 2013 / 10:03 pm

    These photos are hilarious and just show Asia to be the weird and amazing place I love it for. I really want to go to Japan and Disneyland is definitely on my list!

      Japan is definitely the king of weird and amazing! I really hope you get to visit, it’s still my favorite country.

    Wonderful views with fabulous colours, looks a lovely place to be.
    Thank you for these excellent photos.

    The one of the women with 6 teddy bears in her stroller is hilarious! Does she really only have that stroller to carry the bears?

    • Beth Williams
      August 29, 2013 / 11:08 pm

      She did have a child with her, but they were around maybe 6 or 7? Too old to be pushed in a stroller I’d say! We ran into her a few times, and every time we couldn’t help but giggle. :)
