    The middle ground between light and shadow...
    Tokyo's resort has been fabled as basically the gold standard for Disney parks, and I hope to get a chance to visit at some point! I also hope to visit HK's park, because Mystic Manor seems like it's right up my alley.

    Another question: is someone who doesn't speak any of the various languages going to be able to have a fairly seamless and smooth experience at these resorts?

    English is a second language of almost everyone who has a different primary language. These foreign parks that attract customers from varied cultures take this into account when being built. Almost everything has a version in English if it isn't already. Most people would be fine.

    As somebody who's been to Tokyo, I had no issues whatsoever. There's more English signage than Japanese oddly enough. The cast members speak enough English to answer whatever questions you might have. The only issues were that all of the shows and attractions were in Japanese (obviously, but it didn't affect my enjoyment of them) and any announcements on the PA will be in Japanese. Journey broke down when I was in line and I had absolutely no idea what was going on.

    Anyone think the bit with Tink at the beginning was a jab at Shrek 4D?

    I don't think anyone thinks of Shrek 4D when designing attractions.

    Blasphemy! How dare you make fun of a ride that contains some of the most clever lines in theme park history:

    “THAT HOUSE COST ME A LOT OF DOUGH!”

    Except for the kids playing with the props in the queue for the Pirates show, I literally experienced none of these issues. So your mileage may vary... or you gotta really be looking for it.

    Also, if you've never had a run-in with a stroller, have you REALLY ever been to a Disney park?
