Hey, guys. This is my first post so I hope this is appropriate! My family of four(40's-aged parents, 21-year-old son and 18-year-old daughter) is considering a trip to Tokyo for my graduation. I'm Disney obsessed, and we were considering Disney World, but we went several years ago and my brother's not too into the idea. I've told them before how amazing the Tokyo Disney Resort seems, and my mother suggested going there, as it would appease my brother too; at least, the Tokyo part.
I have no idea where to begin, though, with planning. Firstly, if we went, the earliest we could go is the middle of May 2010, for probably about two weeks? Ish? We're not sure how long. We could go later in the summer, but I figured it would be busier then, right? The only other time we could go is right after Christmas, until the 8th or 9th of January. I'm assuming the better time to go would be later in May, right? Please, teach me, o' wise Micechatters.
Secondly, how long to go? We figure this is probably a once-in-a-lifetime trip and I'd love to get to see all the shows/ride all the rides that we can. How many days for Tokyo Disneyland, and how many for Disney Sea? One or two for Tokyo Disneyland, three for Disney Sea? More if I can swing it? I'd love any input.
Thirdly, does anyone know of any good Tokyo Disney planning sites? There are TONS for Disneyland and Disney World, but I'm not having much luck googling planning sites for Tokyo Disney Resort.
Also, is it worth it to try to go to Hong Kong Disneyland? I don't know how feasible this would be for us, but this is the closest we'll probably ever be to China, and I'd love to someday say I'd been to all the Disney parks around the world... if we did get to go there, how long should we stay?
Lastly, does anyone have suggestions of things that are not to be missed in a trip to Tokyo? My family's very excited at the possibility of this trip, and want to see all the cool things that we can! If it helps, both males in our family are computer nerds, and the girls are into girly/adorable things like the Japanese seem to do so well. So... I'll be googling fun possible things for us to do as well.
Sorry this is such a novel. Any and all input will be really appreciated!
