    Lashbear's TDR / Japan Trip Report

    Hi all - I'm just back, and I think I saw EVERYTHING in Japan (OK... maybe not...)

    I'm just going to gove it a couple of days to let the dust settle, and then the Trip report will be forthcoming. In the meantime, here's some handy hints.

    Hint #1 - if you can get a friend to get fastpasses for you while you wait in line for a different attraction, it makes for a VERY efficient day !! Domo Arigato Gozaimasu's galore to the wonderful Disneylurker ! :o)

    Hint #2 - Get a water bottle on a lanyard. It's a great money-saver, especially refilled from the drinking fountains.

    Hint #3 - Honey Flavoured Popcorn in a Pooh Bucket On A Lanyard is DELICIOUS - and saves you geting bored in ride lines, too !

    Hint #4 - When you go to TDS, you MUST eat at Vulcania. When in TDL you MUST eat in the Queen Of Hearts Banquet hall. Both these restaurants are themed to die for !!!!!!!!

    Hint #5 - when you've travelled 11 hours in a plane remember to get some sleep.... Zzzzzzzzz.

    PS: I got a REALLY good video of 20K (I think).

    Anyhoo, Big Helloooos to everybody, and See Ya Real Soon !!!

    Hugs,
    Rob.

    Welcome back Lash! Sounds like you had a great time!

    We hope you watched the morning show yesterday. Some aussie morning show was filming live at the hub while the meet was going on! People kept taking their picture with this guy.

    Unusually and exceedingly peculiar and altogether quite impossible to describe...

    Lashbear! So glad to have you back.

    When they were filming at the Hub, my first thought was "I hope Lashbear is watching this. Then he can really feel like he is a at Noon Meet."

    Darn. We should have asked them to take a case of corndogs back with them for you.
    Anything listed on the park maps as an attraction is fair game for inclusion in the Rally.
    I cannot confirm nor deny the inclusion of any attraction in the Rally.



    May the Gumballs Be with You...Always.

    NO GOATS!

    Welcome back, my fuzzy!!!

    There are a few of us that are MOST anxious to hear of your travels in Japan. There will be 4 pasty white visitors to that esteemed country in early June. We are just going to Tokyo and environs, but I want to hear all about your trip so I can a) get tips and b) be jealous that I won't be seeing more.

    How was Pooh? Was it as good as the one in DL?

    lol...TDL's Pooh is only about 100000 times better than the DL or WDW ones Most amazing ride I've ever ridden in my life.

    Welcome back Lashbear....I can't wait to see your 20k video....I've never seen a good one from TDS.
