    9:00am - Onboard the resort line and passing over the Tokyo DisneySea bus parking lot. Cones celebrating the 40th anniversary of the resort.
    Only a few buses in the lot at the moment. We noticed they would drop people off then leave.

    The rain was really coming down so no good pictures on the way back to Bayside Station.

    This was interesting to me. The Toy Story Hotel does not have a shuttle bus. It does have the shortest walk since it is directly across the street.
    The current Resort Cruiser buses are more bus like and less interesting than the fleet they replaced.
    Stopped by the lounge to see what their snack offerings are.
  • Page Number: 62
    The drink area included a selection of Coke products, coffee, and juices.
    The snack selection
