We are embarking on a big change here on the site as we rebrand and refocus our mission.
In the beginning, the blog FatHobbit.ca had long been place I had used for talking about my own adventures in travel. Over the course of time, the site evolved in to a broad-based blog covering Disney Parks all over the world. We’ve reported on trips to Walt Disney World, Disneyland and Disneyland Paris. But over the past year since my move to Tokyo, the content of the blog has increasingly been about experiences at Tokyo Disney Resort.
The reality for many English-speaking visitors coming to Japan is that there are few resources outside of the official Tokyo Disney Resort site to get information and trip reports like you’d find for parks in the United States and France. And for fans of Tokyo Disney Resort in any language, we will become a consistent, reliable place to turn to for the latest news about the parks, photos from inside the parks, and a collection of great experiences from visitors to both Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea.
It’s with a heavy heart to say that for the name “Fat Hobbit,” the adventure is over. But a new journey awaits as today we change the name of the site to reflect our greater focus on content about Tokyo Disney Resort. Going forward, we will be known as TDR Explorer.
- TDR Explorer will feature all the same great content you’ve come to enjoy will remain – and increase. And, we have some exciting new additions with the launch of our new podcast “TDR Now” and even more photography and news from inside the Japanese parks.
- TDR Explorer will also feature an improved user experience with information organized in a way that makes it easier to find exactly what you’re looking for much more quickly.
- TDR Explorer will continue using social media, with updates on Twitter at our new handle @TDRExplorer and on Facebook.
Let’s continue the journey and explore Tokyo Disney Resort together!
