To be honest, I wasn't entirely sure what to rate this park.
I had been really looking forward to visiting...however the day we arrived, there was terrible rain. I know that's not the park's fault, but that and a few other things made the day not the experience I was expecting. However altogether, I do think it's worth a visit and I wish I had visited on a nicer day.
The staff were all in raincoats and waving/smiling despite the weather, which was impressive. And the gift shops sold reasonably cheap (1000 yen) umbrellas, along with raincoats and little towels that you wear over your head/shoulders in Disney themes. I bought one of those, seemingly obvious hint - use an umbrella as well otherwise it soaks through and becomes useless!
The park is absolutely gorgeous - the architecture in the Venetian area etc is stunning and it takes your breath away when you walk in. I wish I had taken photos when I arrived and was raining less because by the end of the night I was over it! And I wish I had gone on one of the gondola rides before the weather got too bad!
The same as any Disney park, go and get your fast passes first - you can get one to start with, then you wait a couple of hours and you can get another. However, some of the places didn't have fastpass running so it wasted our time trying to find one that did!
That lead us to the other problem...the park is really confusing! There's very little signage anywhere (in Japanese or English) and the map I had didn't really explain things very well. We spent ages studying the map and trying to find out how on earth to get to a certain area!
But the areas themselves were beautiful. All of the park looks amazing.
We ran into a little problem at the underwater world area (like the Little Mermaid) when I tried to order lunch and they didn't understand I was vegetarian...I don't expect anyone to cater too much to my dietary requirements, but all I wanted was the salad without meat/fish...and it was very difficult to get! When I got it, it was just lettuce leaves. But that's common in Japan, I think I was just having a bad day considering the weather and found it frustrating that there was nothing I could eat!
The rides are good - the highlight for us was the Tower of Terror which was great. By the end of the day, some of the rides still had huge queues so we never went on the Toy Story ride for that reason...but some of the rides were really fantastic and others were average.
Still, I'd love to visit again some time on a beautiful day and I'm sure I'd enjoy it much more, which is why I'm not letting those little things affect my rating.
