One of my favorite parts of the park at Halloween time is seeing the pumpkin carvers back in Big Thunder Ranch. They always inspire me to carve something each year. Here’s what we carved at my house this year.

Well this is the only day I didn’t write down in my journal. I’ll have to wing it from memory.
We got up late and grabbed breakfast from the store downstairs. I think I’ve had more Cup of Noodles while we were here than I have ever had before. Calpis drinks were a tasty treat that I discovered while we were here. I think my favorite out of all of them was the carbonated grape flavored Calpis.

I figured I’d go ahead and share Ruston and Jacob’s adventures too.
Welcome to Tokyo!
I thought this would be interesting to show. Here’s a quick report showing a lot of the interesting foods and drinks we enjoyed in Japan.
Edamame Kit Kat (we think)
Aww… today is our last full day here.
Again we decided to wake up late and just enjoy the day. The weather was supposed to be pretty bad today so we were looking forward to empty parks. Looking out the window, sure enough, the wind was really whipping. All the palm trees leaves were pointed in the same direction, and the water in the bay all had whitecaps on it. We didn’t eat breakfast and figured we’d find something in the park. We threw on our rain gear and headed out to the monorail. Getting on, we knew something was wrong. This had to have been the most crowded monorail we’d seen since we had been here. The very next stop was Disney Sea, and sure enough almost the entire monorail emptied to go. As soon as we got in, we stopped by guest services to change some dollars into yen. We were down to about 600 yen for the whole day and next. I’m glad we only had to do that once because it ended up taking 10 minutes with all the paperwork that had to be filled out and copying our passports. All this for $50?

Our 2nd to last day at Disneyland started off slowly. We slept in until 9am hung around the room for a bit and then jumped on the monorail to the park. We ended up hitting the gates right around 10am.
Here’s the view from our 11th floor room.
After seeing the weather report for Saturday being rainy all day, we decided we’d rather do another Disney day than going out into Tokyo on the subways and going in and out of temples and museums. Adding a 3rd day to our passes we super easy. We went through the turnstiles, over to guest services and the cast member was able to upgrade our tickets no problem.
After getting our tickets, we high tailed it over to Winnie the Pooh. The Disneyland Band was performing in the hub, but we were on a mission. Off to see Pooh!
