We’re taking the trip of a lifetime to Asia! Over the next two and a half weeks starting this Saturday, a few of us at “Attractions Magazine” are going to Shanghai Disney, Hong Kong Disneyland, Universal Studios Japan, Tokyo Disneyland, Tokyo DisneySea and more. You can follow all the fun on social media.
Assuming we have a good Internet connection at all our stops, we will be posting during our trip on Twitter, Snapchat, Instagram, Facebook and our YouTube channel. Let us know if there’s something you want to see or if you’ve been and have any tips for us. Of course, we’re not all heading out of town, so you’ll still see posts from Orlando, California and more during that time too.
Keep in mind that we’ll be about 12 hours ahead of those of you in the Eastern time zone. Just change a.m. to p.m. and that’s about what time it is in Asia. To cap off the trip, we’ll be ringing in the new year at Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea as part of an all-night event in the parks.

Although it’s a once-in-a-lifetime trip for us, it’s old hat for the crew at Theme Park Review. They don’t just post a lot of crazy roller coaster videos, part of their business includes taking fans on theme park trips around the world. So we figured we may as well let them be our guides for our first trip to Asia. You can also follow them on Twitter @ThemeParkReview (FYI: Their feed is sometimes not for kids or those easily offended.) Although this is their first trip to Shanghai Disney, they’ve been to Tokyo Disney many times and claim it’s the best of all the Disney theme parks. (We’ll let you know our thoughts after the trip.)
