Celebrate Tokyo Disneyland’s Disney Easter Parade With Usatama

13.April.2019 | FEATURES / SPOT

Hey readers, Midori here from the MMN Editorial Team.

Tokyo Disneyland never fails to go all-out with its popular parades. A new parade is currently taking place for Disney Easter featuring the character Usatama for the first time. I went and experienced the parade myself and here’s what I saw!

Usatama is an Easter egg with hands, legs, rabbit ears and a rabbit tail. The parade was lined with this bizarre and curious creatures. Mickey and his friends are actually holding an Usatama Easter egg hunt which you can get involved in to help them find all of the escaped Usatama around the park.

 

The road on which the parade takes place in the park was announced earlier on and so I waited in that very spot for it to start.

The parade cast taught all the spectators the moves for a dance for everybody to do together. The moves make you want to start dancing straight away, so don’t be embarrassed. Get involved and bust out those moves with everyone!

After dance practice Mickey and the gang began appearing on floats. Help catch the Usatama together with the Usatama Chasers!

The cast’s outfits have an even more pop design than usual parades. They look really cute!

 

Partway through the show the dance part finally began. It’s fun dancing together with the characters!

Will all of t he Usatama be caught in the end? Join the characters in this huge celebratory parade yourself this Easter!

  • Tokyo DisneySea’s Fun and Adorable Usa-Piyo Easter Show

    09.April.2019 | FEATURES / SPOT

    Every year, Tokyo DisneySea puts on a brand new live show. This year, it is holding an Easter-themed show starring the LINE sticker character Usa-Piyo who is a chicken with rabbit ears.

     

    The performance takes place in the lake in the middle of the park. This was my first time seeing Usa-Piyo. He has a somewhat strange appearance about him. I wondered to myself how he will act in the show.

    The show began with a dance performance followed by the arrival of a boat with Disney characters on board.

    Where else better to see a show on the water than at Tokyo DisneySea?

     

    As the boat rolled on by the eggs on board all of a sudden hatched to reveal lots of Usa-Piyo. This means guests can see him from wherever they’re standing. It’s so cute seeing so many of them bunched together♡

    Usa-Piyo joined the dancers, Mickey and other cast members to celebrate Easter but since he was only just born he wasn’t too good at it! Seeing him like that is just too adorable, you can’t help but cheer him on.

    Mickey and the cast spoiled Usa-Piyo with everything they had so we were pretty moonstruck by him. He’s so fluffy you just want to squeeze his cheeks, just seeing him filled us with happiness.

    It was cute seeing him play with the other characters too.

    By the end of the show everyone was captivated by Usa-Piyo!

    There’s merchandise on sale too to get your own adorable pet Usa-Piyo for at home too♡

  • Disney spring-limited menu report! Come check out 2019’s Easter food at DisneySea! ♡

    08.April.2019 | FEATURES / FOOD / SPOT

    Hi, I’m Midori from Moshi Moshi Nippon’s Editorial Department!

    Finally, the Disney Easter we’ve all been waiting for has finally begun! Every year, Disney Resort is bustling with people during its Easter celebration. Not only are there shows, but the food is also noteworthy! I made my way down there, tried the food and now I’ve put together this report on DisneySea’s Easter-limited food based on my findings! You can only try these dishes this season so make sure you experience these precious flavours!

     

    An Egg hunt…in my pasta?! Cafe Portofino special set!

    The Mediterranean harbour area that looks like a South European port city is located on the right as you enter DisneySea. It is here that you will find Portofino, and they’re selling a special Easter set! Portofino is popular because you can enjoy Mediterranean food whilst looking over the beautiful townscape. I have been here to eat quite a few times and I am very pleased with my experiences here!

    Special Set ¥1,880 (tax included)

    This linguine tomato carbonara and appetizer even comes with a dessert and drink! All of a sudden, your table will be filled with bright colours! If you pay extra, you can change your drink into an alcoholic drink! The appetizer includes marinated salmon, barley salad, octopus, mussels and egg – all the individual foods were full of flavour! The eggs were just so cute I didn’t want to eat them!

    Within the tomato and carbonara lies a hidden soft boiled egg that customers can enjoy hunting down! Even adults who have graduated from university will secretly get a kick out of this egg hunt! The fresh tomato flavour is refreshing and perfect for the Easter spirit. The dessert is panna cotta with passionfruit sauce. It looks like a sunny-side-up egg! How cute!

     

    Sweet panna cotta and refreshing passion fruit sauce is the perfect combination!

    I could feel something granulated in the dessert which made me curious, so I asked the staff what it was. They told me it was panna cotta seeds! This granulated texture is very mysterious and fun! The Cafe Portofino Special Set is indeed very “special” and with just that, you can tell it’s very satisfying. This set is the perfect way to complete your day of memories at the park!

     

    Mamma Biscotti’s Bakery souvenir sweets cafe is so cute!

    Vanilla pudding and Milk Jelly, Cherry and Vanilla Mousse Cake with souvenir cup ¥800 each (tax included)

    Mamma Biscotti’s Bakery is located in the same area as the Mediterranean harbour and serves up desserts with souvenirs! This Easter, there’s a limited edition vanilla pudding and milk jelly that come with a souvenir cup, and a cherry and vanilla mousse cake that comes with a souvenir plate. The vanilla pudding has quite a deep flavour with a refined sweetness. The souvenir mug has a spring-themed design that uses spring colours – you will want to use it straight away!

    The mousse cake is easy to eat quickly and goes perfectly with the sour cherry flavour. It also looks cute too! The plate that comes with it is a good size to use for a range of purposes. Like the mug design, the plate also has a spring-themed design. It’s so hard to just have one of these souvenirs! This design is only available here so I wouldn’t be surprised if people come here every season to buy all the seasonal designs!

     

    Continue through the park to discover the special meal set at the “Yucatan Base Camp Grill” located in the Central America-themed jungle “Lost River Delta”.

    Special Set ¥1,580 (tax included)

    A hamburger with tomato, barbeque sauce, omelette rice and sausage all on one plate! The set gives you the opportunity to choose vanilla pudding and a soft drink for the perfect hearty meal! You can also change your soft drink for an alcoholic drink for an extra fee.

     

    The main plate includes a hamburger, omelette rice and a sausage for a good price! Take your first bite and you’ll immediately return to your childhood. The burger is juicy, and even called back the adventurous spirit that I left behind when I entered adulthood! This is the fuel you need to explore Lost River Delta! The pudding is moist and dense but comes in a small quantity. This is the perfect meal for an adventurer! Enjoy your hearty meal here and embark on your adventure to uncover the secrets of ancient Central America!

    Don’t miss out on the Egg Hunt Tasting event being held at DisneyLand and DisneySea! If you buy off the Easter menus and post three photos of your food on your social media sites, you will receive an Easter egg! Of course, the Easter menus that are part of this campaign also include the two menus mentioned in this report. There are 21 different kinds of Easter eggs you could receive! Which will you get? Aren’t you excited?!

     

    Not only is DisneySea’s Easter menu delicious, but there are a range of special extras that come with what you order. The normal menu is also great but the Easter-limited menu has been specially made, so please come check it out!

  • Experience Tokyo Disneyland’s Magical Christmas Parade & Decorations

    12.November.2019 | FEATURES / SPOT

    Jolly faces are all around at Tokyo Disney Resort right now as Disney Christmas kicked off last Friday. It’s set to sleigh its way up to Christmas Day this year.

     

    The editorial team at MOSHI MOSHI NIPPON jumped ahead and got to experience all of the festive fun taking place at Tokyo Disneyland parks, so we’re going to showcase some of the magical events taking place this year.

     

    Disney characters dress up for the amazing Christmas parade


    If you’re visiting Tokyo Disneyland this year, the one event you absolutely have to check out the Disney Christmas Stories parade, where Mickey and company, as well as characters from various Disney Pixar films like Frozen and Toy Story, all arrive on Christmas floats.

    All of the floats and themed on the films they appear in. For example, Lilo and Stitch ride a Hawaii Christmas boat, while Donald and Daisy have their own boat decked out with Christmas decorations.


    The floats will stop before the crowd, and that’s when the dancing begins! Mickey, Minnie, Chip and Dale begin the dancing in front of Cinderella’s castle. All of the Christmas-clad characters and dancers invite guests to join in with dancing.

    Once the dancing stops, the floats begin to move again, and snow falls all around the guests, plunging them into a White Christmas. The parade is truly magical at this point as the snow dances through the air. What could be better than celebrating Christmas than with your favourite Disney character at Tokyo Disneyland?

     

     

    Gaze up at the 15-meter tall Christmas tree

    The first thing to catch your eye if you walk towards the World Bazaar from the entrance is the towering Christmas tree which stands 15 meters high. At night, they turn the Christmas lights on, glow beautifully with the other visuals shining in the area. Here you’ll truly feel like you’ve been transported to a Christmas land as you’re wrapped in the warm lights of the illuminations and lulled by the music.

     

    Photo opportunities with your favourite characters

    In front of the Cinderella castle you’ll find multiple photo spots with statues of Disney characters. There are photographers there ready to take guests’ photos for them, so be sure to dress in your Christmas best to snap a memorable picture with the Disney cast. If you buy the photo, you’ll also receive a Christmas illustration and other goodies.

     

    You can really feel the Christmas spirit at Tokyo Disneyland simply by walking through the park. Don’t miss this year’s Disney Christmas, and be sure to invite friends, family and loved ones along for the ride.
