Update: More video from around Tokyo Disneyland Resort.

Here’s a video taken by a park guest sitting in the safety of an open area of the Tokyo Disneyland Resort attraction Tower of Terror (similar to the American park’s Twilight Zone Tower of Terror attractions) swaying in during one of the after-shock earthquakes.

Now that’s an E-Ticket ride.

Tigger’s Bouncy Place opens at Winnie The Pooh

I was at the Magic Kingdom early Saturday morning with my son making our usual rounds. Since the new interactive play queue for Winnie The Pooh opened, one of my son’s favorite things to do has been to get in some quality play time before the queue gets too busy. Going on the ride is actually a bit secondary to enjoying the queue, at least until the newness wears off.

As it turns out there was already a small line for the standby queue and just as we walked up, a cast member was moving aside the trees that just the day before had blocked entrance to the Tigger’s Bouncy Place section of the queue. Based on reports online, it seems like this is just a ‘soft-open’ for that section of the queue and it may or may not be open when you visit.

Looking closely at the bounce pads, it appears Disney has done some work on each one adjusting the spring mechanism to provide a stiffer spring and a shallower dip. Each pad is surrounded by new soft ground that doesn’t quite match the color of the other ground that was laid when the queue was built.

Here’s a quick video of Tigger’s Bouncy Place in action:
