    Guess who's coming to Tokyo?

    Family business has dictated my spending six weeks in Asia right after the start of the year and I definitely intend to see the three remaining Disney parks I haven't visited and maybe a possible future Disney site or two as well.

    Most of my time will be spent in HK and Shanghai, so I will see a whole lot more of China than I will Japan, but I am posting this in both the HK and Tokyo forums to get as many opinions as I can as I start planning.

    My HK accomodations will be arranged, although I'll likely spend a couple of nights at HKDL to get a feel for the place. So now some general questions and PLEASE feel free to offer spirited advice.

    First, what's the weather like in HK in winter (January/February). I know Tokyo can be quite cold, but what about HK? How easy is it to get to HKDL from the center of the city? Is there some holidays/busy period during my time there to avoid the new park?

    What sites, areas, restaurants etc are can't miss?

    Any advice on best method of getting from HK to Shanghai, keeping in mind I may have to go back and forth a few times?

    As for Tokyo, I will have very limited time to 'see the sights' but want to do my best. I'm planning three full days for the Disney parks. What else is can't miss and close by? How easy is it to get around with ZERO knowledge of Japanese?
    Any hotel recomendations, either near TDL and further away? Also, I hate sushi, so I don't care where the best is :-)

    When I'm at TDL and TDS, what are things I can skip and what are must-sees?

    Any advice appreciated ...

    That's great.
    http://www.japan-guide.com/e/e2164.html This is a guide to the spectacular city that is Tokyo. Be sure to see at least something like go to Shinjuku and Shibuya for a couple of hours.
    http://www.tokyodisneyresort.co.jp/index_e.html I'm guessing that you've been here, look around it and get a feel for what it's like. As for hotels, this page will be of great assistance: http://www.tokyodisneyresort.co.jp/t...wto/05_01.html Pick hotels from there, they all have their own web pages as well. It will indeed be pretty cold in January/February, coldest time of the year so bundle up. Some must see things that often get missed are:
    • Mermaid Lagoon Theater
    • Fortress Explorations
    • Mickey Mouse Revue: it's not too special but this is the only place you can see it
    • TDL Splash Mountain has some significant differences
    • There are lots of cute shows at TDL. You can't really see them all but do what you can, you'll get a schedule with your park guide
    • You must see TDS's Lagoon Shows as well as Mystic Rhythms and Big Band Beat.
    As for dining, I would just do what your budget allows. Even if you don't eat at these places, you need to see them, just peek.
    • Queen of Hearts Banquet Hall
    • Magellan's
    • Vulcania
    • S.S. Columbia Dinining Room

    OH, AND I will be relying on the great TDL resource in TDLFAN. I'm hoping he'll even be there when I go and can be my personal tour guide!
