[Official] Services to ease the burden at the park
How to ride a ride using DAS
Tell the Cast Member near the attraction you want to ride that you want to use DAS, and return by the time you are told.
However, these days the waiting time is often very short, and in the case of a 10-minute wait, you could only take a bathroom break or wander around outside and take pictures. In the past, there was time to go eat or relax during that time.
If you would like to use this service, please notify a Cast Member at an eligible facility that you would like to use the Disability Access Service and register. Registration for the Disability Access Service is available at the applicable facility, Main Street House at Tokyo Disneyland, and Guest Relations at Tokyo DisneySea. To register for Disability Access Services, please present your Physical Disability Certificate, Mental Disability Certificate, Rehabilitation Certificate (Ai no Techo, Green Certificate), A-bomb Survivor’s Health Certificate, War Injury Certificate, or Disability Welfare Service Certificate, and Park tickets for all members of your group.
Please present the park ticket used for registration to a Cast Member at the applicable facility. If you are unable to wait in line for a long period of time, all members of your group may wait outside the queue for the duration of the wait. (You may not be able to see shows or performances in the middle of the line.

Let’s go to the new attraction!
Beauty and the Beast “A Magical Tale”
It was a storm of excitement that exceeded my imagination. The ride is well and faithfully recreated from the movie, and you can have a wonderful time swaying on the coaster that gives you an almost real world feeling. The climax at the end is breathtaking! The only problem is that there is a transparent partition between the coasters, and since I’m short, it’s hard to see what’s in front of me, so I really wanted to ride in the front row… I’ll try to get a better view next time… Full video
The whole thing can be seen here 📸.

Beauty and the Beast “A Magical Tale” Coaster Dance Melody Scene
The lights at night are a little different. It’s also quite fantastic.
In contrast to the pink color, it glowed blue and looked a little scary, like a castle with fierce beasts.
Baymax’s Happy Ride
This was the most fun attraction that gave me the maximum level of Happiness!
The melody of Baymax’s ride was so pleasant to listen to that it made you feel like you were in a groove.
What else did we enjoy in the park?
Food and other things
At Big Pop (Disney’s first popcorn store), I was able to buy a popcorn bucket from the Disney movie “Beauty and the Beast” 🏰I chose the cookie cream 🍪 flavor! It was very tasty. There was a light on the bottom of the bucket, so I was desperate to finish it. It’s so romantic and handsome and pretty when you make it glow in the dark🌹.
Takeout at Gaston’s Restaurant🍴
I had a delicious Le Fou’s Churros (Apple Caramel), Berry Cheers and a box of hors d’oeuvres!
Fantasyland, the town of Belle, is so exotic just walking around…
We even had some Baymax food (bread and curry)! It was relatively empty at night, especially during the times when it was covered with shows.
The restaurants were more crowded than the attractions, and the wait times were longer.

And the Christmas parade 🎄.
Mickey and Minnie’s house (Christmas version)
We were able to meet Mickey, although we had to maintain a social distance from him!
We got to ride a lot of the classic rides with almost no wait time!
Pooh’s Honey Hunt, It’s a Small World, Space Mountain, Big Thunder Mountain, Horned Mansion, Flying Dumbo, etc…. In each case, we took the wheelchair route to the nearest ride and then got off and transferred to the ride.
However, Space Mountain was the only ride where we were told that two wheelchairs could not be parked at the same time, so one of us parked a little closer to the stroller parking area (where they could shorten the walking distance as much as possible) and walked from there to the ride, taking a break along the way and holding hands little by little. We were still tired, but we managed to get there.
Last, we looked around for souvenirs.
The sweets were sold out, and I couldn’t find any Christmas products…
When I went to the World Bazaar to buy a last souvenir on my way home after a long day of playing, I was shocked to find almost nothing in the way of Christmas products or sweets. This was totally different from the situation I had been in before, and I had never even queued up to buy sweets before. When I got home that day, I was able to purchase them online through the official Disney app. To my surprise, the next day, both the local and online shopping started to restrict the number of pieces and release. Even the online purchases became scarce, making it increasingly difficult to purchase. I wish they would have thought carefully about the balance between supply and demand, and stocked, produced, and sold in anticipation💦.
Extra (Disneyland Paris catsuit)
Disneyland Paris Minnie Mouse Boheme Ears Headband Disney Parisian Floral Adults🇫🇷(Eiffel Tower)
I actually wore a headband that I bought when I went to Disneyland Paris in France that day! A lot of people told me it was a rare pattern and they’d never seen anything like it! A little bit of premium feeling✿
As expected from the “City of Arts”, Paris ♡
I hope I can go back there someday…♥
P.S. I wrote my wish on a piece of paper during the 2019 Tanabata and Yukata Disney Festival that I’d like to conquer all of Disney overseas, and I hope I’ll have the chance to make that wish come true someday!
Thank you 2021 & Happy New Year 2022
