The third day , we planned to The Most Happiest Place On Earth - DisneySea. Actually , the slogan is for Disneyland but Never mind la I think it can be used interchangeably.

From 浜松千代駅 (Hamamatsucho Station) to 舞浜駅 (Maihama Station) using the JR line , and then change to Disney Resort Train at Resort Gate Way . We reached the destination which is Tokyo DisneySea at around 10 am .

Taking place on both the land and waters of Mediterranean Harbor, this impressive show tells the fantastic tale of friendship and sorrow between humans and the legendary creatures. What is Mythica, and what is the secret to unlocking the door to this mythical world?

Mysterious Island
In Mysterious Island, we get our first fast pass (Journey to The Center of the Earth)at 11am . The validity of the ride is from 2.30 to 3.30 p.m. The ride was a bit scary at the end with a sudden drop and gone through a waterfall.

That week , Disneysea had longer opening hours till 10p.m. Then , I went to the Tower of Terror . The elevator which is part of the ride , lifted about 6 floor above the ground before it dropped down . My heart trembled as I kept holding on to my seat belt . I was in the middle seat at last row ,in front of me there is a aisle . This makes me more scares , I was thinking if i were to drop off my seat I will be in trouble .
