I went with my son in May of 2011. It was the first day they opened after the big earthquake... We had the parks to ourselves, seriously no one was there. We got stopped so many times, not only in the parks but everywhere we went in Japan by natives thanking us for being in there country. They are truly the most hospitable, gracious culture I’ve ever known. My son & I loved Disney Sea the best & I have to admit I was a little freaked out, claustrophobic on 20,000 (It’s based on an earthquake, so I for a few minutes thought it was real since I felt so many while I was there ) leagues under the sea. We had all the characters to ourselves, they actually came around to us in the parks.... I will never forget it & it will forever hold a special place in my heart.
