Since I was a small child, I haven't been interested in Disney resort. When I was a high school student, my parents recommended to go to Tokyo Disney Sea. But, I and my brother proposed to go to a hot spring, instead of enjoying Tokyo Disney Sea.
This phenomenon is opposite to the trend that younger children prefer to go to Disneyland, while older people prefer to stay at hot springs.
When Hong Kong Disneyland opened in 2005, TV showed a couple of Japanese girls who love Disney went all the way to Disneyland.
On the other hand, 5 years after the opening, I was in front of Disney land resort line's train in Hong Kong only to take pictures of the train.
