NOV. 09 2012 about Disney's Christmas Fantasy

A week after the Halloween, Disney's Christmas Fantasy the holiday event has started on 07 November. So, I'd like to share with you all Christmas atmosphere from two parks. Please enjoy the Happy early Holiday!

First, I'd like to escort you TDL.

Always this Mickey flowerbed is beautiful, but especially the holiday season's flowerbed is spectacular.

I remember these adorable father Christmas Micky and angel Minnie tree toppers are newcomer to the park decoration.

Speaking of decoration, let's find more holiday decoration in TDL park.

The picture from inside of "The Home Store" the merchandise store in World Bazaar. The main kitchen stove showcase with merrily decoration.

Don't you want to try special flavor churros? Now we can buy a chocolate churros with white chocolate powder the seasonal flavor at "Parkside Wagon". The window has a nice sticker decoration.

There are the pretty garlands and ornaments from shops in front of the Cinderella Castle. These shops sell some special holiday treats.

Here are some photos from each theme land.

From Adventureland.

From Westernland.

From Fantasyland. (You know, "Haunted Mansion" in TDL is located in Fantasyland.)
As you can see the coffin sleigh on the roof, now Sandy Claws has visited the mansion.

From Toontown.

Only one disappearing thing is about main photo location at the hub.

In this year 2012 photo place theme is Holiday treats factory with Disney friends. There are many mouthwatering cookies, whip cream and adorable characters. However they are too packed and many of them are stand on same level. Mickey & Minnie the front look is not so bad, however Pluto, Donald and Daisy the other sides are really messy, I can't see what's going on.

Therefore, here are tips for the great photo opportunity, Let's take a photo at show-window in World Bazaar.

The window from "World Bazaar Confectionery" the biggest sweets shop in TDL. Wonderful Candy cane stripes with happy holiday dresses Donald & Daisy. I think it's really neat.

And another my favorite show-window from "Disney & Co." the merchandise shop in World Bazaar. It's so Danaldish Christmas, isn't it?

Not only check the show-window but also enjoy your shopping inside the store!

I hope you will sense a TDL holiday atmosphere.

OCT. 13 2012 about Protect our Village Safety (sales) By Ourselves!

Cape Cod Village was once a calm and very peaceful fishing port. Before I start a report about the Cape Cod, let's hang around for a bit. You can feel nice sea breeze.

In this season, there are many Halloween decoration in the village and they are a delight for tourists to watch.

Lucky me! I got a chance to visit the inside of "Grand Banks Cannery" at Cape Cod.

Let's get back on the track. Here are the main report from the village.
In recently the village are not always stable enough. For, it seemed like that the village have been in financial distress since this late summer.

There is a instead of a valuable fire engine at a fire department entrance.

The Below photo was taken in this spring. There are beautiful fire engine.

However, the historical legacy was gone.

I think there is a deep municipal budget cuts on the fire department.

The fire department of Cape Cod has a long history as the village does.

The history of Cape Codde from the town hall.
"Two British ships reached land within moments of each other in the year 1680. The first was commanded by Captain Elias Winthrop, who immediately proclaimed this settlement the town of Winthrop. The second ship, under command of Captain Joshua Bedford, declared this new territory Bedford Grove. When neither could prevail upon the other to relinquish the land or its name, it was decided that a new name, acceptable to both, must be chosen. Many names were put forth but, for one reason or another, soundly rejected. Finally, an exasperated woman in the crowd, who noticed the predominance of codfish in the water, shouted out, “Please, sirs, we are all very hungry. Why not call this place Cape Codde Village and be done with it?"
And so they did, and so it was and so it remains. Over the years, Cape Codde Village has endured harash winters, heavy storms, and devastating fires, but our townspeople are nothing if not resilient. We are proud of our "Yankee know-how" and our "never say die" attitude. We pride ourselves on remaining a small township, and we are deservedly famous for our fishing traditions, our annual Fourth of July Cape Codde Cookoff, our stoic merchants and our unique handicrafts. Though we benefit preserve our way of life. Which is why we are fond of saying, "Come again when you can't stay so long. Rebecca Peabody, Historian"

And here are some historic material from the inside of the Cape Cod Fire Department.

"American Insurance fire marks date back to 1752. They were introduced to indicate insured buildings to the old volunteer fire companies but were discontinued for this purpose after 1870. When the present system of paid municipal fire departments was inaugurated."

I wonder where it went to. Poor villagers in Cape Cod, I only think of the good old days in this village...
I hope that the faith and hope of the village forever.

More story about the place of the fire department entrance, please check also the topic of "Park Now MAY. 06, 2012".

Grand Banks Cannery is the inside and outside queue line area of "DisneySea Transit Steamer Line" at Cape Cod.

The new wagon sell "Happy Duffy" (It's like a flavored cream stuffed soft cookie. This season's flavored is Chestnut.), it's 420 JPY.

The third Disnyana in Japan will take place in February 2013. Therefore the beautiful fire engine might be sold at the auction.
