  • Tokyo DisneySea’s New Halloween Show is a Thrilling Must-See

    17.September.2019 | FEATURES / SPOT

    Disney Halloween 2019 has finally begun, and this year, Tokyo DisneySea is serving guests a dark and mysterious Halloween experience to keep them on edge. The festivities will run all the way up to October 31.

     

    We visited the park to see Festival of Mystique, an all-new colourful and flamboyant show introduced this year. Here’s our report.

    The show began with music chiming in at Porto Paradiso in Mediterranean Harbor upon which trickled out lines of costumed friends of the sea. The beautifully dressed ladies at the front then spoke of a Halloween festival that was once held at the port, and their intention to resurrect it.

    Out came a merrymaking Mickey mouse and Disney cast aboard a ship, clad in cute outfits the likes of which have never been seen before at the park.

    Donald Duck, Goofy, Chip and Dale all got off the boat and headed towards the ladies, almost as if charmed by the allure of their beautiful and bewitching singing voices. This was followed by a sudden whimper by Pluto as he looked on towards Mickey. “Pluto, you’ve got to be a good boy! We’ve put a lot of effort into this Halloween,” Mickey said to him. When he said this he began to think that something strange was going on with the festival―like something was going to happen…

    The singing and dancing ladies went on to teach the onlooking guests a few dance moves to get involved with the show. Everybody danced together with Mickey as the leader.

     

    It wasn’t long however before the mood and tone of the music took an uncomfortable turn…

    Before we realised it, Mickey had been locked inside a cage! But he was dancing and having fun literally just seconds before―what happened?!

    Luckily, Minnie Mouse comes to the rescue to save Mickey and bring the fun Halloween festivity back. She takes the lead and dances with the guests this time.

     

    So what happened to the Disney characters, and what was their fate? We don’t want to spoil the ending, so you’ll have to see it for yourself this fall!

  • Live the Disney Princess Dream With Tokyo Disneyland Hotel’s Luxurious Afternoon Tea

    25.July.2019 | FEATURES / FOOD

    If you’ve had the chance to visit Tokyo Disneyland or Tokyo DisneySea you will have tried the many delicious dishes and drinks on offer at its variety of restaurants. But did you ever know that Tokyo Disney Resort also offers afternoon tea?

     

    Tokyo Disneyland Hotel serves the only afternoon tea set across the entire resort on occasion in line with certain events.

    We had the pleasure of joining Disney mega fan Kanako as she went to visit the hotel to try this very special afternoon tea.

    Tokyo Disneyland Hotel is the closest hotel to the entrance of Tokyo Disneyland. The first thing you will notice upon stepping inside is its use of Victorian decor. The ceiling also stands tall, opening the entire hotel up to give it a sense of space.

    The afternoon tea is sold at the Dreamers Lounge in the lobby. In line with the Donald’s Hot Jungle Summer event currently taking place at Tokyo Disneyland until September 1, the tea set is also “hot jungle summer” themed.

    The first thing to note about the three-stack set is how refreshing and summery it looks – a perfect selection for the hot season. It comes with sandwiches, hors d’oeuvre, scones, desserts, and a choice of tea or coffee.

    Kanako started with the very top plate. The plate itself is decorated with what is supposed to look like Donald’s footprints and splashes of water.

    The dessert on the left is haupia, a traditional Hawaiian dessert made with macadamia paste and roasted coconuts. It’s crunchy and has an incredible flavour.

    Sitting temptingly next to it is the panna cotta and melon coulis. It contains a single sage leaf which adds flavourful herb notes. The entire dessert itself has a satisfyingly refreshing taste which covers your taste buds with a single mouthful.

    The middle plate features two types of scones: plain and pineapple. They come with separate servings of clotted cream and honey to lather the scones in. The latter scone is cute in that it’s actually shaped like a pineapple. It’s crunchy and delicious and goes exquisitely with the accompanying tea.

    The tea menu has many options. Kanako went for the “Darjeeling Summer” from the premium tea selection. When you order from the premium menu your tea is prepared in a sleeping pot that is both cute and extravagant as you would expect with an afternoon tea set.

    The bottom plate contains a bunch of different appetisers including tuna and okra tartar, mango and mascarpone canapé, tomato and fish capellini, keema curry quiche, and an ethnic pork sandwich.

    Kanako was very happy with her hors d’oeuvre, saying: “Everything is delicious, but I really like the combination of the pork and the slightly chewy bread for the pork sandwich!”

    The chilled cone cream scoop was very refreshing and a perfect palate cleanser.

    Finally, the cute hot jungle summer dessert plate which caught our attention from the very start. It comes with a tropical cream cheese and passion fruit mousse, white grape and shiikuwasha jelly, and Peach Melba which looks like flowing magma.

     

    You might be surprised to find out that the jungle leaves on the plate aren’t actually part of the plate’s design but in fact green chocolate carefully sprayed on.

    Even the Goofy, Mickey and event logo on the plate are delicately made from chocolate. Once you know that you’ll definitely be reaching for the camera straight away!

     

    The Peach Melba is a lovely combination of peach compote and vanilla ice cream topped with raspberry sauce and almonds. Its mix sweet and sour flavours remind one of summertime.

    It’s not everyday you see a cream cheese mousse, is it? The one that Donald is sat on. Kanako especially enjoyed its passion fruit scent and velvety texture. It’s made even more delicious when eaten together with the jelly surrounding it.

    So, which was your favourite, Kanako-chan?

     

    “Everything tasted amazing, but my favourite was the haupia♡ It’s moderately sweet, and I really liked the flavour of the coconut! Everything in the afternoon tea set is cute down to the tiniest details, so it’s perfect for taking photos for social media. I definitely wanna go again!”

     

    The Donald’s Hot Jungle Summer themed afternoon tea set is being served from 11:30-17:00 until September 1, 2019. Places are limited so I recommend making a reservation in advance.

     

    Enjoy your summer to the fullest with this tropical afternoon tea set!

  • Tokyo DisneySea’s New ‘Song of Mirage’ Show is a Must-See

    23.July.2019 | FEATURES / SPOT

    Tokyo DisneySea fans have been waiting in excited anticipation for the opening of the park’s new attraction Soaring: Fantastic Flight on July 23. But did you know that an all-new show also started on the same day?

     

    I visited Tokyo DisneySea together with models Saki Shibata and Kanako to see this new show. It’s called Song of Mirage and features Mickey, Minnie, Donald and Goofy as the cast.

    The show takes place at the Hanger Stage in Lost River Delta. Mickey and the rest of the cast are led to the mysterious city of  Rio Dorado by a cane that Donald found.

    From the very start of the show the characters are sucked into this magical place by the mysterious cane. During this time Donald ends up getting himself in trouble. Mickey also takes part in a dance battle where he shows off his cool moves which leaves Minnie positively in awe. Each character has their own performance which guests can look forward to seeing.

    The most overwhelming part of the show however is the voice of the diva who appears during the set. She sings beautifully yet powerfully and it gave me goosebumps.

    The singing and dancing throughout, as well as the realistic projection mapping were all spectacular. We were completely drawn into the story and the vibrant and dynamic performances that tied it together.

    The performers singing and dancing in their golden costumes too were a sight to behold.

    Saki’s reactions were really charming as her face changed every single second while she laughed, clapped and really got into the show. Kanako, who loves Disney, was extremely pleased to see her favourite characters on stage too.

     

    There is both reserved and free seating at the show. Reserved seating must be booked in advance but is allocated through a lottery system where people are chosen randomly. The schedule for bookings can be found on the official website.

    The Disney cast wear adventurer costumes during the performance, and you can buy plush toys of them wearing them too!

     

    If you’re visiting Tokyo DisneySea then be sure to catch the show during your breaks between attractions and parades.
