Japan 2017: An Amateur’s Guide (Day 4)

Hi Everyone. I have not been able to continue posting about my Japan trip due to the ongoing political crisis in my homeland, Mindanao, specifically in the city of Marawi. In light of the recent invasion by the Maute Group in that city, the President declared Martial Law here in Mindanao to ultimately control the rebellious acts of those infidels. I’m sorry for being harsh in my words, but those scumbags have done enough harm and danger for so long a time, and now this happened. It’s tiring to be watching the news all the time (and most of them are biased news if I may say so) and seeing people in that area fearing for their lives, entrapped in the midst of constant war just because of those stupid rebel groups who have done nothing but disrupt the peace in Mindanao.

Anyway, so much for that.

I will do a separate post on my opinion regarding the current events in my country. Rewind back to Japan, shall we?

We spent the whole of day 4 in one of the happiest places on earth. Where else? Disney Sea, of course! It’s known for being a theme park which has more adult customers than kids. It was my first time to go to a world-acclaimed amusement park, and I was really excited the whole time. Deets below:

When you go to any Disney attraction, you have to physically and mentally prepare yourself for very long lines especially in the ticket outlets. Almost all of their rides have this “Fast pass” entrance – meaning, if you can get this ticket for a particular ride, you don’t need to wait in line for your turn because you’ll be given priority treatment. But wait, there’s a catch – Fast pass tickets are only limited. That’s why you have to literally outrun other customers to the ticket outlets if you want to get one.

Our first ride was in the Tower of Terror, which I didn’t get a picture of because I was so tired from running just to get the Fast pass tickets. haha. It was one heck of a ride because the elevator where we all rode on to went up and down so fast from as high as 199 feet. Yes. It was that scary it was amazing!

Our next stop was the Toy Story Mania. The ride was more inclined for the kids, so we really did not have as much fun as we hoped, but nonetheless, it was still an enjoyable place.

After our tummies have rested from the Tower of Terror, we braved another major ride which was the Indiana Jones Temple of the Crystal Skull. We rode on what seemed like a rugged old Jeepney vehicle while rolling past crushed bones, mysterious creatures, and the vengeful spirit of the Crystal Skull! Not to mention, Indiana Jones himself surprised us when he literally fell from the cave’s ceiling while holding on to a thick rope.

 As if Indiana Jones was not enough, we proceeded to our fourth ride which was Journey to the Center of the Earth.

It was one crazy ride because the wagon went in a slow pace at first, giving us a bird’s eyeview of the mysterious creatures and beasts that lurk beneath the surface and then suddenly- bam! We were taken on a whim as the wagon started rolling so fast. My tummy literally churned. Haha

Here are some of the other snaps I took while spending the rest of the day at Disney:

All in all I really did have a great time at Disney Sea and I’m planning to come back for Disney Land and Harry Potter soon! Japan has given me so much entetainment while I was there and it still pains me that I had to come back home. Well, home is where the heart is, after all.

The next post will be my last stop during my Japan trip: Fuji! Stay tuned guys. 😊

Xoxo,

Iva
