Japan Trip 2011 Revisted! Tokyo Disneyland Queen of Hearts Banquet Hall

Hello there my lovely readers! The Google zipper today is frightening me for some reason. Almost like it is a spider of something. And you know how I love spiders. XD
Photobucket
Top of the Queen of Hearts Banquet Hall. So much detail for just the roof of a building.
After blogging a million episode posts I thought I would break up the summaries and walk down memory lane...well continue to walk down Tokyo Disneyland lane. So many pictures folks! I must share them all. Hope you are hungry XD

Photobucket
I think in my first Tokyo Disneyland post I stated this was a new restaurant. Clearly I was full of crap. XD This restaurant has been around for quite a while. I guess it is just super popular. Maybe I thought that because there was a line getting into the restaurant? Either way I was wrong. But the place looked brand new!

Photobucket
The entire front of the restaurant is so well themed. Almost the like the Alice in Wonderland world got dropped into Disney, White Rabbit and all. Again no one was outside taking pictures so I got the shoots I wanted. XD I would hate to see what the place would look like on a 10 capacity day, like during Golden Week. Horrors I am sure.

Photobucket
Despite how silly the hats look the cast members were happy and helpful. The wait in line was probably because cast members were staggering customers in, so that once you got your tray there would be a seat for you. This restaurant had so many cast members in it. The only other restaurant I have seen so many extra was at the Harry Potter restaurant. People might complain about high ticket prices but it is to pay people like this to make sure your dinning experience is close to perfect. XD I guess you can tell I impressed.
Photobucket
The wait was about 20 minutes I believe? But I think I am counting actual time in line and paying. So really nothing to complain about. And really I wanted time to take pictures. It is easier to justify taking pictures when you are in line instead of "wasting" time when you could be on another ride.
Photobucket
Not my hand. XD But these statues lined the "hallway" towards the counters. People were actually taking pictures here. XD I have seen some pretty fun ones on the internet so I will have to try them out next time.
Photobucket
This is Japan, home of the plastic food. Did you know that plastic food isn't cheap? Crazy. Maybe next time I will buy a tiny ice cream plastic food just to say I have one. But this is standing in the fork in the road. Two lines to help make the nom getting process faster. Both lines had a chance to see what was offered so people could make their decisions in line faster. Because you can't go into this restaurant and NOT get a dessert. I ended up getting the chocolate cake and my husband got the strawberry heart thing. I almost wanted to get the UnBirthday cake but the husband didn't want that and I don't think I could have eaten that alone. Next time one of us will get the dessert in the souvenir cup because...I like souvenirs.
Photobucket
Fast close-up of the plate. It was click and go because now we are actually in line! Quick pictures to keep the line moving. Someone laughed at me though. XD Disney is about taking pictures people!
Photobucket
A very blurry picture of the line. XD This restaurant is called a Buffeteria. That word makes me laugh. You enter the line and pick different already plated options and you pay at the end. Each plate is priced individually so you can eat a tiny dessert or a huge meal. I can vouch for the dessert being worth the wait in line if that is all you want.
Photobucket
Trying to get all the details for you all, my lovely readers....and of course me for memories. Imagine how many pictures I could have taken had there been no one in line. XD A bit of wait occurs when someone is waiting for a certain plate and it is still being made. These plates are not sitting there for minutes being cold. Nope nope, they are being made right on the stop. If my memory serves me right they had no more than 5 plates out at once, just in case something isn't popular. Oh and the reason for the wait is some guests would wait behind the person waiting for their food, not just walk around them. I followed suit as everyone else was doing the same. XD
Photobucket
At some of the restaurants there were special menu items available for the Easter Wonderland. Being that I am not an adventurous eating I stuck with things that i recognize. XD There is a huge oven that is cooking the rotisserie chicken for all to see. It fills the room with such a delicious smell how could I resist?
Photobucket
Since we were eating on a "budget" while in Japan I consider this one of our most expensive meals. However if we were eating like normal people it would probably rank a little above average price wise. The only thing I would do different for next time is not get a soda as I believe it was 300 yen and you got no refills in this tiny cup. I do love Qoo though. :( Maybe if it came in a souvenir cup....
Photobucket
You should wait for a cast member to seat you and not run around the restaurant to take pictures. Do that AFTER your meal.
Photobucket
It felt a little weird going around taking pictures above people's head as they were eating. I know that feeling as we got to sit next to a popular dinosaur at T-Rex Cafe. Hopefully people understand. Everything is just so gorgeous in there you have to take pictures.
Photobucket
Maybe if we had more time in the park or went to it all the time we would have really sat back and took everything in. I did see a few lolitas sitting down and having a fancy meal. It really is a good setting for lolita pictures. XD People with annual passes must do that a lot (or at least that is what I would do). Come on in, ride a few rides, and have a long lunch. These are my dreams if I won the lottery folks. We would live part of the year in Tokyo and have little lunch/dinner dates here. XD That is how much I liked this Tokyo Disneyland restaurant.
Photobucket
After walking up super early to make it to the park at opening time and spending a great deal of time watching parades and riding Fantasyland rides this restaurant was a much needed sit down and chill break. Wonderful food, good atmosphere, and plenty of picture taking opportunities. I tried to eat everything on my plate but I left feeling stuffed and there were a few bites left over. So if you ever find yourself in Tokyo Disneyland I highly recommend this restaurant, if only for the desserts and maybe to split a meal. XD Time to get back out in the park and take more pictures now!

If the birthday party is for a married person who has a large list of friends and colleagues and relatives then the banquet hall should have good provision for car parking, the banquet hall should have good seating arrangements, there should be a lift in case the banquet hall is not located on the ground floor etc.

Last year we also spent our holidays at this splendid “Disneyland of Tokyo”. My son was truly very fascinated towards the views of this one of the best Banquet Halls. That is why he is forcing me to go there again in these days.
