TIP: Check out the Park Operation Schedule before heading to TDL. Opening time varies from 8-930 am and closes at 10pm.
I have pre-downloaded Tokyo Disney Land map from the Tokyo Disney Land website to familiarize ourselves with the attractions and identify the rides we were interested in.
TIP: Learn to use the Fast Pass (FP). Disneyland Resort's Fast Pass system is the best invention ever.
Upon entering the park, I went to (well it was more of ran to)Monster Inc. Hide and Go Seek (an FP attraction) had our tickets scanned and received FP tickets for return after an hour.
We used our free time lining up for Star Tours. When we finished Star Tours, our Monster Inc. Hide and Go Seek was just about ready.
TDL is divided into six (6) lands. We worked our way counter clockwise from WORLD BAZAAR (a line up of Victorian styled shops and restaurants) starting off with Tomorrow Land.
This is our family's favorite ride. I think we lined up for this attraction 5 times.
We are boarding one of these aircrafts.
C3PO was our pilot. My 7 year old was amazed having him fly the aircraft.

Buzz Lightyear's Astro Blasters
Grand Circuit Raceway
We never minded the Stitch Encounter as it was only in Japanese. We also skipped most of the thrill rides since my boys hate them.
The Toon Town caters to mostly younger park guests. I accompanied my 7 year old to the Roger Rabbit's Car Toon Spin (a cab that spins as you help Roger Rabbit run after the bad guys).
There were so many kids at Toon Town, we decided to leave this land early and moved back to Tomorrow Land to watch One Man's Dream II - The Magic Lives On at Show Base. The show is a mix-match of Disney's All Star Characters.
Next to Toon Town is Fantasy Land.
My boys accompanied me see Cinderella's Castle.
My youngest loves horses, so the Castle Carousel Ride was an obvious must in our checklist.
Its A Small World
Also one of my family's favorites, is a ride inside a haunted Gothic Mansion.
The garden leading to the mansion is creepy ~ with tomb stones of dead relatives and animals.
The point of no return.
The spooky mansion left us hungry and famished. So lunch was at the nearest restaurant we can find - Queen of Hearts Banquet Hall.
Next to Fantasy Land is Critter Country. It is fairly small park (I would not have known we were already there if not for the map I was holding).
From Critter Country we went to Western Land, where we watched the Country Bear Musical Theater. I would be honest in saying the show is just good for resting your tired feet. I almost fell asleep watching this one.
Following Western Land is Adventure Land.
From here we took the Western River Rail Road. It is a real steam train that takes guests on a trip around the wilderness.
After the train ride, we went to the Enchanted Tiki Room to watch Stitch Presents "Aloha E Komo Mai!".
One of the highlights of our TDL trip is the Easter Parade. Which was such a big thing for the Japanese TDL fans. They would literally reserve their places hours before the parade starts. It was honestly one of the most colorful parades we have seen.
With extra hours left, we were able to go back to our favorite rides at Fantasy Land and Tomorrow Land. Unfortunately we were too tired to wait for the Grand Fireworks display.
Our TDL Hotel room awaits our tired - tired-tired bodies.... TOKYO DISNEYLAND HOTEL
