Today we went to Disney Sea to show gramma what it was like. We would have gone to Disneyland instead but Sophie and dad really wanted to go on the Tower of Terror. We arrived at the park around 11:00 am. Sophie, Taylor and dad ran over to get fast passes for the Tower of Terror, but by the time they got there the time slot was for 9:00 pm – 10:00 pm. Sophie was so upset that she started crying because we did not want to stay at the park that late.

We started walking around looking at rides to go on. We passed by 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea but it was closed while walking past. Dad went to try to grab fast passes for it when mom yells “RJ! They just opened!” We dropped of Taylor’s stroller and got in line. It only took about 5 minutes to get on since we were one of the first people in line.

While we were exiting the ride we walked past a piece of paper on the ground. I asked dad if that was a fast pass, so he turns around to grab it and it was a fast pass for 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm for Journey to the Center of the Earth. We let mom take it because she had not been on that ride yet. She would have gone last time but Soph and dad ditched mom, Tay and I to go on more cool rides.

Mom and dad split off and went to wait in line for Journey to the Center of the Earth while gramma, Sophie, Taylor and I went to Mermaid Lagoon. We decided to go on Scuttles Scooters because it was only a 10 minute wait. When we were done riding Scuttles Scooters we went into King Triton Castle. When you walk in you see a statue of King Triton. When you walk in further, you see all of the fun! There are three rides in the castle. Jumping Jellyfish, Blowfish Balloon Race and the Whirlpool.

After we rode Jumping Jellyfish, we headed over to the Arabian Coast. I really wanted to go on the Caravan Carousel because it is a double decker carousel! Instead we ended up going on Sinbad’s Storybook Voyage. It is one of my favorite rides in Disney Sea. There is one scene where a light mist is dropped on you and it felt so nice because it was so hot outside. We met up with mom and dad at Sebastian’s Kitchen, had lunch and went home.

Sophie and I had our school orientation today. Nothing fun. We met our teachers, homeroom teachers and all other 6th grade teachers so everyone knew each other even if you were not in their class.

On the 21st, Taylor had her school orientation. She got her school uniform. While mom was with Taylor at orientation, gramma, Sophie and I went to Ginza to do some window shopping. Ginza is a high end retail part of Tokyo.

Today was our second day of school. It was a lot more fun than the first day. Today I had design technology, science, drama, music and a double block of math.
