D23 Japan Expo 2015

One item on my bucket list since I was a kid was to visit D23. There are many Disney related items on my bucket list. Some of them have been crossed out, but I still have a lot left to conquer. I've already crossed out being a Disney Vacation Club Member, being a Disney stockholder, writing a travel book about Disney and most gratifying of all, being a Disney Dad. I still have a lot left to do. I have yet to take a Disney Cruise, go on Adventures by Disney, stay in the Animal Kingdom Lodge, participate in Run Disney and visit a D23 Expo. Ratketeers, I am super happy to say that I can now cross out visiting a D23 Expo. Done and dusted!

At D23 Expo Japan for the first time

At D23 Expo Japan for the first time

I didn't have to crawl too far to take my virgin trip to D23. My first D23 Expo was just a train ride away from my neck of the sewers. I woke up super early, slung my "A" pass around my neck, crawled to my nearest train station and an hour later, I was at D23 Japan Expo 2015. As the owner of a Tokyo Disney blog, I should've gotten the most expensive pass, but I'm a rat. Where was I gonna find that kind of moola? I had to settle for the cheapest one which allowed me to only visit the stores, but I promise, in the future, when this rat becomes rich and famous, I will definitely get the most expensive pass and blog about it.

The line to visit the store in Ambassador Hotel

The line to visit the store in Ambassador Hotel

In total, I visited 3 stores at D23 Expo Japan 2015. There were only 3 stores at the expo, so.... yeah. The 3 stores were Magical Store at Ambassador Hotel, Museum Shop at Hotel Miracosta and Samantha Thavasa Group Special Shop which was at the convention center itself. I was not allowed to take any photos in the stores, but I did take this picture (above) of the line for the Magical Store. The line was about two and a half hours long!

I apologize for not taking pictures of the inside of the stores, but rules are rules. I did however, buy a lot of products and will share photos of those products with you!

Never had so much fun shopping in my life

Never had so much fun shopping in my life

I did have a lot of fun shopping in the stores. I had a bit too much fun as you can see from the picture above. Next time, I'll definitely save up to get the more expensive pass which will allow me to get into the conference, but for now, this is all I got. I'm proud to have crossed out "Visiting a D23 Expo" on my bucket list and I've come up with a new item to add to the list. "Visiting a D23 Expo, for real." Without further ado, these are the products that I bought.
