Hey, fellow Explorers! I want to start by saying how much we appreciate and ❤️ each of our loyal readers here at TDRExplorer. You’re the ones that make this all possible, and it’s your support that has allowed TDRExplorer to grow into what you see today, and to continue to flourish!
In the past year alone, we’ve released our wait time app — TDRNow — for iOS and web browsers (with an Android app on the way), and crafted our unique “Start Here” guide which highlights our best guides and articles for Tokyo Disney Resort.
In the past year, we’ve done two surveys. After thorough consideration by our team of statistical analysts (just me at Starbucks with a notepad and a Frixion pen), we look forward to bringing you more of what you want to see in 2017 and beyond, including:
- More in-depth guides and recommendations for Tokyo Disney Resort
- Guides and reviews to other attractions and destinations within Japan, including other theme parks (we’re just dying to fill you in on Huis Ten Bosch, the Dutch theme park in Nagasaki)
- Planning guides to the other Disney Parks in Asia, Hong Kong and Shanghai (and a strategy for tackling all three resorts!)
- More in-depth discoveries of the “kawaii” merchandise exclusively available at Tokyo, Hong Kong, and Shanghai Disney Resorts
We love being able to give you daily news and updates, and now, we’re pleased to invite you to show your support by contributing to the TDRExplorer Patreon.
Support TDRExplorer on Patreon ?
Patreon is a platform that allows fans to support creators and allow them to continue crafting your favourite types of content. They have a more in-depth explanation on their site — better than I can do.
Whether you’re a regular visitor to TDRExplorer, or it’s your first time, we hope you’ve found great value in the information we have on offer, and will consider supporting TDRExplorer Patreon (even $2 a month is a great help!) ?. With your contributions, we can take the site from “awesome” to “spectacular”!
In return, we’re excited to share exclusive perks for our patrons, such as a monthly one-hour live group chat with us and other fans, to ask any questions you might have about the parks, planning your trip, or Japan in general. Or, if you prefer, I am offering a 1-to-1 Q&A planning session too! The full list of perks is on the Patreon page.
In addition to the perks, I have a list of contribution goals. Meaning, if we hit a certain amount per month, we will do something special for the site or Patreon exclusives! My favourite is if we hit $250, I’ll create a video seeing how many times it’s possible to ride Toy Story Mania at Tokyo DisneySea in a single day (I’m already tired just thinking about it ?).
Your contribution helps us keep the site running, and will mean we can grow TDRExplorer from being a great resource for planning your Tokyo Disney Resort vacation to being the premier destination for news, reviews, guides and more, for Tokyo Disney Resort, theme parks and other attractions within Japan, and even further afield from Shanghai and Hong Kong.
Other Ways to Contribute ?
Another way to give is buying your tickets for Tokyo Disney Resort, Hong Kong Disneyland, and other tourist destinations through one of our affiliates. Use promo code KLKTDREX to receive a discount off your first order. See our full list on our tickets page.
Future of TDRExplorer ?
Rest assured, we will continue to provide new and regularly updated content for Tokyo Disney Resort, with plans to add guides to non-Disney theme parks and destinations such as Universal Studios Japan, Sanrio Puroland, Fuji-Q Highland, Ghibli Museum, Ocean Park Hong Kong and more in the coming months. We’re also looking forward to adding more people to our fantastic TDRExplorer team.
At TDRExplorer, our focus is — and will remain — Tokyo Disney Resort. With your help, we will make TDRExplorer bigger and better and be THE source for trip planning, videos, and original content for Tokyo Disney Resort, wider Japan, and other destinations across Asia.
Thank you again, you’re all awesome! ?
