It was pouring rain for my second day of visiting to Tokyo Disney Land. It was super unfortunate but it cannot be help.
I would like to avoid rainy days for my future trip as much as possible but it is also hard to avoid all the time.
I would like to write a record of a countermeasure of Tokyo Disney Land in a rainy day with kids for you and my future.
Check Weather Forecast and Provide Against an Emergency
I checked weather forecast this time of course and I knew it is going to be rainy for our second day of visiting Tokyo Disney Land.
I prepared my raincoat and two raincoats for my kids as well.
My kids are 3 years old and 4 years old.
I brought two backpacks for them and put their clean clothes for change in each backpacks.
It was already rainy when we were heading to the Disney Land so we put raincoats on.
However, it wasn’t enough prepare.
My kids started saying freezing and they were not happy,,,
Shoes and socks were all wet of course mine too.
Our upper bodies were fine because we wear raincoats but our pants were all soaking wet.
We couldn’t stand after an hour of opening.
We found long rainy boots for kids so we bought them.
According to weather forecast, rain will stop after noon, so we went outside of the Disney Land and tried to purchase rain boots for my wife and me.
We went back to our hotel room after shopping and warmed our bodies up. We decided to go back to Disney Land after stop the rain.
Is there any shopping center near the Disney Land?
There is a Shopping Center near the Disney Land. However, it takes little bit long by walking so if you are going with kids, it is better taking taxi.
We took taxi to shopping center, Ion. It took about 10 minutes.
Ion located right next to Shinurayasu Station.
We bought shoes there.
It was totally wasting our money.
We went back to celebration hotel from shopping center.
The good thing was the shopping center was close to our hotel.
We were thinking to go back to the Disney Land form shopping center taking airport shuttle, but it costs more money from shopping center to Disney Land.
We spent about 1800 yen from Disney to shopping center.
It cost about 1000 yen from shopping center to celebration hotel.
I realized it is better to prepare a long raincoat when it might be rainy, and it is better to bring or wear long rain boots if it is possible.
In addition, I suggest you to bring some heat pads if you think going there during winter or autumn.
Your luggage is going to be bigger but trust me you are not going to regret it if you could know it will rain on your travel to the Disney Land.
By the way, we could borrow dryer for shoes at the celebration hotel for free.
We went back to the Disney Land around noon and great point going to Disney Land on rainy day was we got to see Mickey Mouse with raincoat!!
Thanks for intdorucing a little rationality into this debate.
