Easter Greeting has started at Tokyo DisneySea.

Take note that the soundtrack was supposed to be used for last years Tip-Top easter which is now canceled and might return as early as next year.

Any recommendations for books (or website/magazine articles) about history of TDR? Preferably English but Japanese can work too.
It is more academic and predates Tokyo DisneySEA, but Riding the Black Ship: Japan and Tokyo Disneyland by Aviad E. Raz is pretty good. If you want to laugh there is a good bit of very poor cultural analysis of Tokyo Disneyland out there that, because they compare Tokyo Disneyland only to Disneyland, they claim the park was changed a lot for Japanese sensibilities but miss that the change was made for the Magic Kingdom and not Tokyo Disneyland.

What did the final show scene in Pirates look like before they installed Jack Sparrow in there? I assume it was similar to the Treasure Room from WDW?

Good question. I found a video from 2007 of the ride, but when it gets to that point, it's too dark to see anything.

I don't think there was anything there, or at least not a true show scene.

I was actually able to find this in my local library. It was okay. A lot of academic drivel but I was expecting that. There's not a lot actually written about the history of TDL except some bits in the first two chapters. I thought it was funny how that guy went to Disneyland a over and over out of his own pocket and wrote it off as "research."

Current restrictions (capacity, park hours etc.) will continue until at least July 11.

Also heard today that all ticket sales have been suspended until July 11 (except for tickets included with hotel reservations)

its sad to say that usatama might be canceled again this year with this continuation of restrictions.
