In 2010 Beth received a guitar for christmas, self -taught she embarked on performing at gigs, playing covers, in her hometown of Grantham. Over the 3 years since the start of the course, Beth has been involved in many projects in and around nottingham and is now a well sought after musician. The evening then took a slight detour and we saw Gary and a few band members at the front of the stage to perform 3 tracks acoustically.
In part one of this Tokyo Disney Resort trip report I covered the Disney Resort Hotels, the Disney Resort Line monorail, Ikspiari, and Bon Voyage.
There is a large, curved, entry system that contains the ticket booths and turnstiles beyond, which you will nearly always find completely packed with people at least an hour before park opening.
If you're lucky enough to be near the front of the lines before they let people into the park, then you might catch a glimpse of some magical happenings with the Disney characters. There were various musical acts playing at various times during the day, including the man on the Bicycle Piano (who, by the way, is hilarious and has been at TDL for many years now. I mentioned the Christmas band, and of course you probably noticed the Christmas overlays for the TDL Band and the Bicycle Piano man, so that now leads me to Christmas in World Bazaar. There were various special treats on offer for the festive season, including at the booths on Central Plaza, and at the Sweetheart Cafe on the Tomorrowland corner of the main World Bazaar complex. Being vegetarian is difficult in Japan, but there are at least two places in TDL that have really good vegetarian offerings. Before we move on to our next land, let's take a look at some more photos from around World Bazaar this trip, including the wait times board during a random point on our trip, which might be interesting for some people to see. Facing onto Central Plaza is the Crystal Palace, which is very similar to the one in the Magic Kingdom - it's even in the same location. We dined at Crystal Palace one morning during our trip, as we wanted to meet the Pooh friends there wearing their Christmas additions. It isn't a bad meal at all, despite the issue with not wanting something on your meal but paying the same price (we're surely saving them money, right?!), and it is very cheap too! We saw the Pirates Brass out one day (they are the resident band of Adventureland), and walked around taking pictures of the Christmas decorations, including the fun Santa Stitch Tiki idol. Adventureland is home to the Polynesian Terrace, which is a dinner show venue hosting two different experiences. Without sounding like I am on repeat, we once again had vegetarian issues with the Polynesian Terrace (at both meals).
The lunch experience is a combination character meal and show, with the show really being very simple and more just for your general entertainment while you dine.
Despite my enormous love for Stitch, I do think that the Polynesian Paradise dinner show is a better overall experience, and I hope that the show that replaces it will be just as good, if not better. In case you missed them, here are the links to my Hong Kong reports that I wrote recently, which were all part of this same trip. Having always enjoyed performing beth joined a choir which kick started her love for singing, especially those harmonies! This really allowed Gary to show off the voice that has made him the star that he is, and he took a real command of the 10,000 capacity arena. These sections really mixed things up and kept the show interesting, with the piano section of course being designed to be more intimate and try to make fans forget they are in such an enormous venue. In this second part I am going to share our adventures within the magical lands of World Bazaar and Adventureland, at Tokyo Disneyland park.


I have never actually counted at how many turnstiles there are, but I would hazard a guess at it being somewhere between two and three times as many as either Disneyland or the Magic Kingdom have. They'll sometimes come out to play on the empty World Bazaar entrance plaza and entertain guests for a few minutes before preparing for their daily greetings. Over the years we have been visiting TDR, we have seen at least forty characters in World Bazaar, most of which, based on this trip, still come out regularly here (which by any standard, is quite incredible). He's originally from Vancouver, Canada), the Tokyo Disneyland Band and a jazz band I had never seen before, but I assume were there for Christmas since they were in front of the Christmas tree, and played Christmas music. I think they did a pretty good job of the decorations around the land, with a large display at the front, lots of decorations up the "Main Street" part of World Bazaar, and then some other displays and banners around Central Plaza. The bakery photo below shows the special Stitch treats, but also some more regular offerings that we got for breakfast one day.
In Westernland, the Hungry Bear has an excellent vegetable curry, and in World Bazaar there is a special vegetarian set menu at the Eastside Cafe. The Crystal Palace is only a character meal for breakfast, and for lunch and dinner it is a regular buffet.
During lunch you can join Lilo and Stitch for Lilo's Luau and Fun, and for dinner Mickey and Minnie host Mickey and Minnie's Polynesian Paradise.
For some reason they didn't just take the meat out of the main meal and give us extra of whatever else, we actually instead got some minuscule rice, potatoes, carrot and broccoli combination that looked more like a side dish. The show stars Mickey, Minnie, Chip and Dale, along with musicians and performers in a really beautiful show of traditional Polynesian dancing and music.
I will be writing the next part in the next few days, so look out for that here on the blog.
Wanting to further her studies in music, in 2011 Beth started a Music and Sonic Arts Degree with the intention of becoming a professional session musician on her violin. Critics may argue that Gary was simply performing a Take That show, but lets not forget that Gary had a big hand in writing the majority of these songs, so really they are Gary Barlow songs – and they sound fantastic. Gary then welcomed his band back to the stage whith highlights from this final section being the crowd pleasing Relight My Fire and Gary’s chart success Let Me Go.
Tokyo Disney Resort (TDR) has a very different feel to it, and really makes a Disney fan's emotions and senses go into over drive! The photo below shows the view form the monorail station one morning when we arrived - but realise that this photo only shows one small section of the turnstile entry area.
I really love moments like this, where you can capture candid moments of the characters being cute with one another.
This trip we managed to meet Max Goof, Peter Pan, Belle, Snow White, Robin Hood, Eeyore, Tweedle Dee, Tweedle Dum, the Sheriff of Nottingham, Suzy, Perla, Geppetto and Jiminy Cricket. The theme this past Christmas was Disney Christmas Stories, which was also the name of the parade. So, with it being really part of both lands, it's a good stepping stone for us to move into Adventureland. But to my recollection it was somewhere around the equivalent of $15 per adult, which for a character breakfast is amazing value! Pirates here is just a slight variation on the Disneyland version, with just a couple of things moved around.
The Polynesian Paradise show is actually being replaced this year with a new production, of which there are few details about yet.


My own personal judgements aside, it is fun and I recommend it if you have never done it before (although you'll need to be able to speak Japanese to book in advance, or try your luck at the box office on the day itself). However, due to the nature of the course, singing became more prominent because there was a greater need for vocalists. Gary said goodnight to his adoring fans only to of course come back to the stage to round off the set with Take That’s biggest hit, Never Forget. Whether you arrive at the park via the monorail from the on site hotels, bus, or walking from Maihama (or any one of the other multitude of ways of arriving), you will ultimately find yourself on the vast concourse in front of Tokyo Disneyland park (TDL). Of course, there were many more out, but with everything else there is to do in the park, we couldn't spend our entire time in World Bazaar! The decorations and parade were matched accordingly, to give a seamless flow of continuity. You are given a selection of items, and shown to a table as though it were a cross between a table service and a buffet. The Jungle Cruise here is more like the Florida version, except recently they updated it for the nighttime by adding in some new effects. Overall, the food here is pretty underwhelming, and we really just like to come here because of the atmosphere, entertainment and characters.
As with all Take That concerts, this really was a show that brought nostalgia and youth back for the majority of fans that were in attendance.
You'll find a number of amenities, including a guest relations booth, picnic area (park left), coffee shop (park right), the TDL monorail station, and towering above everything, the Tokyo Disneyland Hotel (see part one for details of the monorail system and hotels).
The way it was advertised, I actually expected a lot more from it, and so for me personally, it was a little underwhelming. Beth started to play open mic nights and gigs around nottingham with a set combining both originals and covers.
Gary and his band sounded great at this show and the setlist was clearly planned for those who were in attendance, but this didn’t prevent the show from being entertaining-if anything it kept it interesting and I think all who see Barlow on this tour will leave being more then happy. We rode it at night to get the "full" effect of the new version, and I wasn't that impressed, so during the day I only can guess that it really doesn't seem any different at all. As I've said many times on this site over the years, the Japanese are a stickler for their rules. The lines for it were pretty long most of the time, but we waited until late one night to do it.
You can see from the picture below that the line one day was all the way out of the main Adventureland entrance, which is pretty wild.
For some reason, asking to have this removed was akin to asking if the United Nations would be kind enough perform Mary Poppins the Musical on Central Plaza while wearing clown outfits. Tigger and Eeyore had holly on their tails, Pooh had a broach, Rabbit a medallion and Piglet also a broach, though weirdly it was attached directly to his skin.
