Earlier this week Raku and I went to Tokyo Disneyland. I've never been to Disney in the United States, so I can't make a comparison, but we had a great time. It was really a novelty to live somewhere that we could just go for the day and then come home at night, rather than requiring a multiday trip to Florida (or California).
We went on a Tuesday, so it wouldn't be terribly crowded. There will still tons of people and lots of long lines, but it wasn't unpleasant. I can't imagine what a weekend in the summer would be like though.

I think my favorite ride was Space Mountain, going on a roller coaster in the dark really gets the adrenaline going. The Peter Pan ride is obviously for kids, but I thought it was really sweet. And a ride that only exists at Tokyo Disney - Pooh's Hunny Hunt - was absolutely charming. I'm not the biggest Winnie the Pooh fan, and I wasn't sure it would really be worth the wait, but it's completely adorable, and the ride is really creative. Splash Mountain was one of our last rides of the day, and we thought we were lucky when we got the front seats, but then we realized how wet were going to get.

As for the food there, we had some really great snacks, though I thought the meal offerings were just mediocre. I'd definitely recommend just snacking through the day. We had these adorable Mickey waffles, and the curry popcorn was also really good.
We skipped the nighttime parade and rode Space Mountain again several times in a row, and missed the fireworks by accident, but it was still a great day.
