Future Posts Inquiries

Image
I haven't really traveled anywhere this month so I thought I would write post about things that interest you guys.

As always,
Zai Jian!

I mean come on!
It's Disneyland!!
Despite only being relatively new (It celebrated its 1st year since its Grand Opening) it felt like I had been transported back to my childhood memories of me and my mom running around Disneyland and hugging all the characters and taking millions of pictures.

However, I was taken aback with how vastly different  Shanghai Disney and my California Disney is.
Shanghai Disney like mash of Disney's California Adventure and Disneyland rolled into one (mind you I've NEVER been to Disney's California Adventure by the way).
Let me tell you why they're different.


Shanghai Disney HAS
NO Toon Town (There are a few stores in the Mickey's Avenue when you come in that have a toonish concept but not a whole zone like in the one in California)
NO Main Street U.S.A. (It didn't bother me, I mean, come o…
