Tokyo DisneySea – Mediterranean Harbor – part two

Tokyo DisneySea - Mediterranean Harbor

At night, Mediterranean Harbor comes alive. Rows of street lamps illuminate the streets and cast a soft warm glow on the rustic buildings. Park guests return to this port city, now a bustling marketplace, to shop and dine. Across the waters, Mount Prometheus lends a mysterious sight.

These photos of Mediterranean Harbor at night are taken at different times – some in the evening and some towards park closing, hence the disparity in the crowd levels.

This wall, which masks the park’s backstage area, is probably the most fancifully themed wall ever designed for that purpose.

The Piazza area is where most people are. Apart from being a popular venue to dine and shop, this entire area is swamped during night harbor shows, such as Fantasmic.

The second level of this building is actually a Chapel. Tokyo DisneySea has one for their Disney weddings – which by the way, is apparently a very popular programme.

There are just too many paths leading to back streets and alleys in this park. We didn’t have time to explore them all. Another reason to go back.

Below the Chapel is a store called Il Postino Stationery.

As the name suggests… they sell stationery here. There’s all sorts of memo pads, folders, sparkly pencils, stickers and so on. There’s a corner at this store that has park soundtrack CD albums and videos on Blu-Ray. There are two machines here if you’d like to listen for free. The soundtrack for Disney Summer Festival, which started showing mere days before, was already on sale here.

You might not know this, but there are mailboxes – real ones – around the park. They will be stamped with special designs, such as the one above for The Happiness Year.

Minutes before Fantasmic! and park guests were all crowding at the Harbor’s edge.

We didn’t plan to watch Fantasmic, so instead we used that time to explore the shops in the area, which was less crowded than usual during show time.

It was overwhelming. Not only does the park have a strong variety of items – they actually look either cool and/or cute that park guests would just grab a whole lot of them.

There’s tons of 30th Anniversary items – keychains, plush toys, confections. The ones you see here showcases the various Mickey Mouse artwork used for previous anniversary events.

Then there’s cheeky items like this.

I wanted to bring this Woody Chocolate box back, but it’s all cardboard. It opens by with Woody opening its mouth like a nutcracker.

Well I’m not surprised that Toy Story Mania, being the most popular ride in Tokyo DisneySea, has a lot of food items. Even seasoning powder?

Galleria Disney is one of the few stores at the park that sells the Duffy and Shellie May bears. The other shops would be McDuck’s Department Store and Aunt Peg’s Village Store.

Surprisingly, I didn’t spot Tippy Blue anywhere in the park. In Japan, these bears are normally only sold in Tokyo DisneySea. Duffy can be found at some other Disney Parks around the world, but Shellie May (the pink bear with blue eyes) remains a Tokyo DisneySea exclusive.

And unlike other items that can come out of ordinary, non-magical, brown shipping boxes, Duffy bears can only be restocked on the shelves from special Duffy bags, like this.

This is the sight I see after a long day at the park. It certainly feels good that the monorail station is just next to the park exit.
