We spent the majority of today in queues... though a 1-hour wait is supposedly quick for a theme park. A great thing about Tokyo Disneyland in comparison to Universal Studios Japan is that the fast-pass is free! The limitation being that you're only allowed to take 1 fast-pass at a time, but each pass gives you an hour's duration to return to the venue.

Here's my mum with Grumpy, whom actually got grumpy at me because I ran out of memory on my camera, and took a while deciding on which photos to delete!

Our tour guide arranged for these freshly boiled (delivered defrosted) Hokkaido Crabs to be delivered to our hotel rooms for supper. Hokkaido crabs are also known as Tarabagani or the Red Sea King Crab. The crab's meat was sweet and put a new meaning to the size of "king" crabs... very satisying indeed!
