I went to Anaheim Disneyland, Los Angeles, a year ago, and somehow Tokyo Disneyland still excites me more. I think it’s got to do with the Japanese and their “kawaii” spirit. Unlike the American Disneyland, Tokyo Disneyland seemed to have more toys, accessories, apparels and cute collectibles; snacks and food are made in the likes of Disney characters; the containers/tubs in which they come in are designed for keepsake; almost everyone in Tokyo Disneyland, adults and children alike, has at least one Disney item on them.
I truly felt like I was on the happiest place on earth, because everyone was loving Disneyland, albeit in an overt fashion.
This was from the Winnie the Pooh popcorn pushcart. Honey flavoured popcorn! There are different popcorn flavours that come in different collectible tubs at different pushcarts.

Hairbands like this are very common.
Another variation of hairband...Dumbo-inspired.
You also have hair clips like that...
Even the guys have fun with accessories!
These masks are sold in the shops too!
I lost count of the number of Mickey Mouse heads on this lady who was in front of me in a queue for a ride. I love her backpack!

Mickey printed on an umbrella.
Or, you can get a Mickey Mouse raincoat from the shops!
And here's the Minnie Mouse raincoat to match.
Sorry you can't see this clearly, but even the traditional costumes they are wearing is printed with Disney!
It wasn't unusual to see many young people wearing traditional costumes during this season.
Mickey and Minnie are dressed in the traditional costumes as well! We tried looking for memorabilia of the Disney bear in the middle, but could not find it. I remembered from my last experience that there is an entire shop devoted to Disney bear in Tokyo Disneysea, so that's probably where this came from.
Not one, not two, but a whole family of toys, that I can't tell which is hung from where!
Looked to me like there was some beauty contest going on, because I saw several little girls dressed in princess costumes around the park.
Doesn’t this look like it’s a lot of fun?
