It’s been six months since The Gaijin Ghost first had an article published on another site. In a guest post dated April 27, 2017, yours truly wrote for TDR Explorer about Toyville Trolley Park, which is sort of a sub-port within the larger port of American Waterfront at Tokyo DisneySea. This post was submitted on a trial basis, prior to entering the WordPress system as a contributor over there. Writing it involved referencing some translated information from the official Tokyo Disney Resort blog.
For the author, it was as much a learning experience as it would be for readers, inasmuch as the Tokyo Disney Resort blog called to attention certain unsung details of the Toyville Trolley Park area, things I had never noticed, such as the trolley track and the mock box office windows built into the entrance arch. On a trip to DisneySea earlier this year after the opening of Nemo & Friends SeaRider, I managed to catch Toyville Trolley Park at a time when it was relatively deserted, since its star attraction, the park’s most popular ride, Toy Story Mania!, was temporarily closed for refurbishment.
Below, you will find photos from that ghost-town expedition interwoven with some photos from this American Waterfront gallery. [Note: as of March 1, 2018, this post has also been updated at the end with some additional pictures of Toy Story characters in DisneySea during the “Pixar Playtime” event.]
Together, these 50 pictures aim to give you a comprehensive photo tour of all things Toy Story-related at DisneySea, starting with the morning rush for Toy Story Mania! Fastpasses. As noted in my TDR Explorer article, it’s not unusual to see this ride’s Fastpass line stretching all the way down the long avenue of Broadway in American Waterfront.
