I find I have better chances on rides with lesser waiting times in Disneysea compared to Disneyland.

No difference in my experience. Used both.

Disneysea is it very different/special? I first time go Disney land

Are there special events like fireworks every night?

Is it safe to go back hotel alone late from disneysea?

Is there a queue for single riders (like in USS)?

Gumxia
Not sure if they have special events every night, but I went on a weekday (Thursday) and they had the shows and fireworks etc. Subjected to weather conditions though I caught the performance when it was drizzling heavily like you-definitely-need-an-umbrella-kind-of-drizzle. And the performers were wearing transparent ponchos. So if it's not pouring, pretty good chance you'd be able to catch it still.

Left about 8 plus and by then most people were alrdy leaving. But as someone mentioned earlier, Japan is pretty safe!

There are single queues for most rides but not for the Toy Story one for sure. That is the most popular ride and fast pass ended at 11am when I was there. So if you want to have a go, be sure to be there latest by 10am. This is one fast pass you have to take first once you get in!!!! Otherwise, be prepared to queue for 1hr or more. For single riders, you'll be joining the fast pass queue and it will save you more than half the time since most fast pass Q-ers are in groups. You'll be allocated a seat when they need the space to be filled. Was in and out of the rides in less than 20mins for single rider queues (even for popular ones!) then again, depends on which day you go!

Everything above is for Disneysea not Disneyland since I did not visit Disneyland. Hope it helps!

END DEC TRIP

(1) I will stopover at Nagoya station for 3h (9am - 12pm) on my way from Kyoto to Takayama. Is there any places around Nagoya station you would recommend for breakfast? and maybe place to explore?

(2) I will stay at Takayama for 3 days, of course I will be skiing/snowboarding, other than Takayama city, is there any other places around recommended to visit?

(3) Is there a need to wear water proof/water resistant shoes when in takayama (I assume it will be snowing) or just normal track shoes will do?

(4) Have you been to any of this http://www.snowjapan.com/japan-ski-r.../takayama-gifu snow resorts?

Respective attractions. And there is a time period of 1 hour (I think?) before you can take your fast pass for ANOTHER attraction. So plan your rides properly.

Suggest you look for one nearer shinjuku station. You may need to transfer often as nishi shinjuku is for the marunouchi line only.

Thanks. I guess the first thing once you enter the park is an amazing race experience for fast passes.

Does anyone know if the kintetsu from Nagoya to Osaka and back will be crowded on 29-30dec? I intend to go 29dec Osaka then back to Nagoya on 30th... I wanna try to use the kintetsu wide pass, but I can only book seats when I'm there on 28?

It's seems Shinkansen need passport to buy too?
