I'm Too Big For This

These are the only two photos we took with the Disney Characters at Tokyo DisneySea in 2010. Just two instead of many, many because my Son felt that he is way too big and way too cool to be running after and pose with them.

It sure was different when he was three or four, as you can see from the slide here. We had fun chasing characters and posing with them and stood in a long queue for a photo with Mickey & Minnie too. No anymore now!

Pretty soon he'll be way to cool for Ultraman! Sigh, they sure grow fast, don't they?

Anyway, won't be going to either Disney Parks on our next trip. We are planning to hit Universal Studios instead. :-)

  2. @Alice,
    Yeah, and HK Disneyland cost much less too. But it is small compared to Tokyo's. :)

  6. You know how kids are around their adolescence and teens, right? They want to look "as grown up as possible"...And they think Disney or Ultraman (or Barbie) are potential threats to their grown up image.
    Universal Studios? Sounds like a really great plan.

    Yeah, you have only a few more years of your child's wide eyed wonder. Enjoy it while it last. :D

  20. One's never too old to pose with cartoon characters. My husband and I do it whenever we can. I didn't know there is an Universal Studios in Asia.

  22. Ha ha... But you still need someone to take the photos for you right?
    You "daughter" can help you lah! Ha ha...

  23. Ohhh!! I've been to neither Disney resorts in Japan. Disney Sea sounds more fun though for some reason.

    Yeees, USJ is fuuuun!!! Don't have too high expectations of the Back to the Future ride though, unless it's for purely nostalgic reasons. ;P

  24. @London Caller,
    Ya ya ya. right....

    Plenty of Disney Crew around to help take photo lah. ;p

  25. @Ri,
    DisneySea would appeal for more us, uhm... mature visitors. Plenty of awesome roller coaster and scary rides too, compared to Disneyland. :)

    Can't wait to get to USJ! Nostalgic, I like. ;p

  26. i'd love to take pics with cartoon characters but more often, there are very long queues.

    ReplyDelete
  27. @LR,
    That's right. But there are also characters that do their walkabout around the park and we simply ran up to them and ask for a photo. Many times, we did just that and has lot in our collection. ^^
