We are going to Tokyo in mid-February 2013. We are looking at going either Monday to Wednesday (11th to 13th) or Tuesday to Thursday (12th to 14th). This will be the fourth visit for both of us but we've never been there at this time of year and it's been a few years since our last visit.
1) Is there anything special on Valentine's Day? I recall reading about a special v-day event that you had to pre-register for last year, but maybe I'm mistaken.
2) Will the Duffy Sweet Love event be returning?
3) This is more a WWYD type question. Sinbad is going down so we'd have to go on Sunday to catch it. We have an event on Sunday we'd like to attend, which is just a few stops from Maihama, but we still wouldn't get to TDS until 6:00 PM. Is it worth the $55 extra for the two of us to get a 4 day pass (which locks us into Mon-Wed choice)? I like Chandu a lot, which is basically why I'm considering it. xD But my fiancee balks at the price tag for me to watch an animatronic tiger, even one as cute as Chandu, especially when we've already been on the ride many times previously. I expect we probably won't be going back to Japan again for another trip after this until 2016 at the earliest.
If we don't go into TDS, we'll probably still use the time to explore the Disney hotels and Ikispiari, which is something we haven't had time to do in the past. If we do this, it brings us back to the first debate...
4) Monday to Wednesday or Tuesday to Thursday? We were going to go to Shibuya Disney Store when we landed on Friday to buy our tickets, but perhaps it's too early to decide, until the weather forecast is more accurate? Oh, and also dependent on question number 1, too.
Thanks for your thoughts.
