There's a beautiful Italian restaurant right around the corner from the hotel we were married in, on the other side of the gondolas. We ate here for the first time on our last trip. Very good meal. As with all Disney parks, there's not a lot of choice per place, because set menus keep cooking time down and allow a greater turnover of, but I seldom have complaints about what's offered in the parks.

Pictures of old man Ohmart riding the merry-go-round in Arabian Coast, and thinking he's Indiana Jones...
You know, I'm slowly working with Tish Eastman, who did all the music on this ride, on a book on Disney composer Buddy Baker! She's never even been to TDL!

This starts the pictures we took with Mayu's nicer, newer camera.
Here you see the entrance to DisneySea, a beautiful place, and unlike any Disney area anywhere else in the world. We like walking around here a lot because it's just grand to look at. Wonderful atmosphere.
And the other shot is the sensation - Duffy! As I said, it seemed like every third person was clutching a Duffy. Sometimes 2. And there was only one store you could buy them in. Amazing, huh?

On Sun and Mon we went back to where it all started for us: DisneySea/Land. Sun was Sea because we figured since it's a weekend there would be more people, and they would choose Land, and we were right! Not a bad crowd at all. And the weather, she was perfect!
This trip we did things we never did before, including this lunch show in an area we hadn't even gone to before! The reason we found it this time is because there's a certain bear in Sea called Duffy which is incredibly popular. I mean, there were so many people walking around with a Duffy - like 1 out of 4 - I wondered if they were giving them away. And there was only 1 store where you can get it - in this new section we found. Amazing. You'll see Duffy tomorrow here. Meantime, enjoy lunch and a show!

Beautiful, eh? These were taken about a 3 minute walk from our house, along the river.
We're off to Disneyland tomorrow for 2 days! We don't know if they have cherry blossoms there or not, but we're taking 2 cameras, so stay tuned!

It's cherry blossom time, kids! We took a lot of photos of the ones by the river by our house too, but this is still the area of the bamboo gardens. And that little round dish I'm holding is sugar-coated cherry blossoms that are for putting in tea.

We hadn't been back to the bamboo garden area for 3 years, but we went today. Well, we didn't make it into the bamboo part, but we did have a lovely time walking the crowded street of stores and restaurants. I had the curry, Mayu had the sketti.
