Tokyo Disney Adventures, Part 1

August 15, 2016 Posted by rissvandal

I know it’s cliche, but for me Disney is seriously the happiest place on Earth. Like, really. Then as the mecca of all things anime and fandom-related, Japan comes in close second. Since I’m currently in Asia, it only made sense for me to go to the one place that combined the two–Tokyo Disney. To give a simple and concise review, it was wonderful. But for someone living in the states who has access to both Disneyworld and Disneyland, is it really worth the long trip to another country to experience another facet of the Disney Kingdom? Well, take a look at my adventure and you be the judge.

1First, meet Juan, my travel companion during the trip. When I decided that nothing would make me happier than going to Disney dressed as Nana Osaki, Juan agreed to don my Hinata Shouyo Haikyu! uniform so I wouldn’t be alone in my dress up efforts. You may have heard that Disney has strict rules against adults entering the park in costume, but if you choose something subtle and unrelated to Disney or else opt for Disneybounding as opposed to straight up Disney cosplay, it’s no biggie.

DISNEY SEA

Tokyo Disney has two separate parks–Disneyland and DisneySea. DisneySea is the reason I absolutely had to make this trip. I’ve been to Orando’s Disney World more times than I can count so I jumped at the chance to see something entirely new. DisneySea is nautical exploration themed and while it does include some rides and sights you can find elsewhere, the overall experience is very exclusive to Japan.

Night At the Roxbury Motel Pt. 1

August 4, 2015 Posted by rissvandal

Sometimes a hotel is just a hotel, but in the case of The Digs at the Roxbury, it’s more like an adventure-laden playground full of mystery. The Roxbury is a boutique motel located in New York’s Catskills, offering over a dozen themed rooms and suites, each with their own detailed and distinct theme (i.e. a genie’s bottle, outer space, meringue pie). I recently explored their most extreme lodging option, The Digs–a three bedroom archaeology-themed cottage full of secret passages, unique amenities, and surprises.

7My look for the trip includes an offbrand felt hat and stockings I picked up from a street vendor in Seoul and a pleated pastel chiffon skort I received from 10 Dollar Mall. For such an affordable price (everything in the shop is $10 or less), I was incredibly impressed by the quality of the piece. It fits true to size and is a wonderful accent for summer’s crop tops or for a pastel goth ensemble.

Here I am right before entering the cottage. It was a real drum roll anticipation type moment, as the simple exterior of the motel serves as no indication for what’s actually inside.
