The Happiest Place on Earth: My Old Photos at Tokyo Disney Land

It might sound weird because I'm a guy, but who cares?! I love Disneyland!

And I have actually have the same birthday and birth year with Tokyo Disneyland! Here are some of my fondest Disney Memories.

I thank my parents for giving me life in this world. I am so grateful that I am Japanese, and my home country is always Japan, too! It only means that I can always go visit Tokyo Disneyland!

Quite a passion eh? Yes, I live in Canada now, but I am from Japan, and I love Tokyo Disneyland. Call me weirdo, but I still love Disney Land!

I was born in September 1983, which is the same month and year of the establishment of Tokyo Disneyland. When I was five, Tokyo Disneyland was five years old, when Tokyo Disneyland was ten years old, I was also ten years old… Isn’t that neat?!

My parents are so cool that they take us to Disneyland once every year as a treat. I, along with my younger brother and sister, we all love Disney now. I think, from my perspective, bringing kids to theme parks cherish their well-being. Kids are happy, and when they remember the experience, they smile, and they want to go back again. It is a kind of positive experience in life.

When I look back, I realize I was fortunate to have a good school system and education in back home.
School field trip to Disneyland? Well, I guess it can happen since we live near by, but still, it was quite the memory and experience. I didn’t get to go to Disneyland with many good friends that often in life, unless they got time to do so. Since I started working, it is even harder for me to see my friends, so I would like to tell all the children. “Enjoy who you are, and what you have. Play as much you can.”

And to parents who have kids, it might be challenging for you to go around the world just to visit a different Disney Resort, but I bet you love your kids so let them experience different world. Kids WILL certainly remember what you have done for them, because I do. At least once, maybe twice, or, if you like Disneyland, knock yourself out.

“All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them.” — Walt Disney
