Tokyo Disney Resort – Part 2

Tokyo Disney Resort - Day 2, Part 1, Tokyo Disneyland Ohayou Gozaimasu! We wake up to a beautiful morning at Tokyo Disneyland - blue sky and sunshine - and 42 degrees. Oh well, can't have everything, and after four cloudy days I'm ready for some sunshine. We got up at 7:00 and breakfasted off the yogurt and pastries we'd purchased the previous night.

I don't think Lee complained about the coffee, though.
