DisneySea Celebrates Summer With Duffy’s Summer Fun ー Get Ready for Summer Food and Photo Spots

12.June.2019 | FEATURES / FOOD / SPOT

Hi everyone, this is Midori from MMN’s Editorial Department.

This summer at DisneySea, Duffy and Friends are holding a fun event called Duffy’s Summer Fun which will be held from June 6 to August 8, 2019. During the event, there will be cute Duffy-themed food, new decorations and photo spots so I just had to go witness it for myself. This is what I found!

Iced Caramel Milk Tea with Souvenir Coaster: ¥1,000 (after tax)

This iced caramel milk tea comes with a coaster that is an inflatable swim ring. The milk tea comes with the inflatable swim ring as a set at Cape Cod Confections which is located inside the American Waterfront.

The float coaster and its summery design includes not only Duffy, but also ShellieMay and many other friends. Even before the floats were released, fans were amazed by the cute designs. In fact, there was a large queue for them on the first day of sales!

 

You can also take a cute photo together with Duffy. If you want a photo with Duffy, you should head to Cape Cod where many have been set up. Finding your perfect spot couldn’t be easier!

The milk tea is moderately sweet with a mild bitter caramel flavour. It’s perfect to sip while on walk down the streets of Cape Cod.

 

Duffy’s Pawprint Burger

Cape Cod Cook-Off First Prize Set: ¥1080 (after tax)

The burger in the Duffy Pawprint burger contains a beef patty with lettuce and grated cheese. This is topped with taco meat sauce. What a perfect meal for a hot summer’s day.

If you pay an extra ¥1,100, you can also get a Duffy and Friends souvenir lunch bag.

 

Unique Park Decorations Around Every Corner

There are so many decorations that are mainly focussed around the Cape Cod area. These are only around for the event period.

You can actually sit in these chairs. This is another example of a photospot where you can take a seat alongside the Duffy crew, who are waiting to take a dip in the sea! How about taking a photo of your own Duffy in the chair?

After a short walk, you will discover Duffy and Friends again but this time, they are playing in a sandbox. You could take a photo of them as they are but feel free to join them. ♪

There are also large decorations around the park, which are the perfect spots to take photos with your friends.

Of course these photo spots are a great opportunity to take lots of selfies, but you could also take a picture of your own stuffed Duffy toy which could be quite interesting. If you have your own Duffy toy at home, you just cannot go to DisneySea without them!

There is even a photo spot at DisneySea Station (Disney Resort line) located in front of the entrance to Disney Resort. Please do not forget to check this out.

 

Come enjoy a fun day out in the summer sun with DisneySea’s iconic character Duffy.

  • Tokyo Disneyland: Write Down Your Wishes at the Tanabata Days Event

    10.June.2019 | FEATURES / SPOT

    Hi, everyone. I’m Midori, part of the editorial team here at MOSHI MOSHI NIPPON.

     

    Tanabata, also known at the Star Festival, is a traditional annual festival in Japan which celebrates the meeting of the deities Orihime and and Hikoboshi who are only able to see each other once a year. Right now at Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea a special Tanabata event is being held called “Tanabata Days.” It began on June 6 and will run until July 7.

     

    During the Tanabata season in Japan, people write their wishes on tanzaku, small pieces of paper, and hang them up before praying to the stars. If you head on over to Tokyo Disneyland right now you can do just that!

    At the entrance to Tokyo Disneyland in the World Bazaar is the “Wishing Place” where guests are invited to jot down their wishes. You’ll find it by spotting the two Tanabata decorations of Mickey and Minnie. If you look really close you’ll see that the characters are holding their own washing cards too. Be sure to sneak a peek♡

    You’ll also find Donald and Daisy to the side of Cinderella’s castle.

    Guests can get their own wishing cards from one of the cast members dressed in yukata. The cards are yellow. The cast also have pens and desks prepared for guests too.

    Once you’ve written your wish the next step is to hang it at the Wishing Place. The colours of the cards are different at Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea. Perhaps your wish will be granted?

    When the evening settles in the Wishing Place is lit up and renamed the Starlight Wishing Place. The illuminations represent the stars and constellations that float in the Milky Way, all references to Tanabata.

    You’re sure to enjoy a magical and romantic Tanabata at this event, so be sure to check it out. The visuals and lights are of course gorgeous, but the music is wonderful!

     

    Perhaps your dream to the stars will come true at Disneyland’s Wishing Place♪

  • 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.

    Finally, it was time to climb aboard the invention of Camellia and her colleagues; an aircraft called the Dream Flyer.

    The Dream Flyer was a magnificent trip. We soared through the sky, through the nature and around famous places of the world.

    We were propelled from one place to another, experiencing a range of new atmospheres and surroundings in so many ways. At each location, we felt the wind and temperature of each country on our skin and could even smell a mix of intriguing smells unique to each location.

  • Enjoy Pirate-Themed Food, Cocktails, Desserts And More at DisneySea This Summer

    18.July.2019 | FEATURES / FOOD / SPOT

    Tokyo DisneySea launched their special event called Disney Pirates Summer which will run until September 1. The event includes the launch of 16 colourful pirate-themed menus. 

     

    We headed straight to Mediterranean restaurant Cafe Portofino to fill ourselves up on the delicious menu. Cafe Portofino is the nearest restaurant to the entrance of DisneySea. Once you find the Mediterranean Harbor, you will find it on the right. 

     Special set: ¥ 1,880 ① Potatoes and Roast Beef Salad ②Linguine topped with Olive and Caper Tomato Sauce and served with Battered Yellowfin Sole Fish ③ Lychee Pudding with Lemon Jelly topped with Mixed Fruit ④ A choice of Soft Drink ⑤ Pay an extra ¥310 for an alcoholic drink. 

     

    I ordered the special set which is surprisingly big but definitely enough to satisfy the hungry pirates, who are always boasting about their enormous appetite. 

    I started with the potato and roast beef salad, which was dressed in balsamic vinegar. The taste was so refreshing which is just what you want during the summer. The rosemary-flavoured potatoes were soft and a perfect match with the beetroot.   

    The linguine was chewy and springy and the capers produced a mildly tangy flavour. I am not usually a big fan of olives, but these were very delicious. The battered fish was crispy and not oily, which is suitable for children and adults. 

    Just looking at the lychee pudding with lemon jelly is enough to make you feel refreshed. It is packed with fruit and takes on the image of a pirate’s treasure chest that is full of colourful rubies. This is the perfect way to clean your palate. 

     

    Ordering the special set allows you to choose a soft drink. If you pay an extra ¥310, you can change this drink into an alcoholic drink. 

    Sparkling Cocktail ( Rum and Mango Sherbet) On its own: ¥680

    This cocktail takes on the image of a pile of pirate treasure. Mango sherbet sits on top of the cocktail like nuggets of precious gold. The base of the cocktail is rum and peach and the refreshing alcoholic flavour of the rum is moderately sweet, spreading instantaneously through your mouth on your first sip. The solid texture of the mango makes the cocktail even more enjoyable, so please mix it thoroughly before devouring. 

    The bakery next to Cafe Portofino called Mamma Biscotti’s Bakery is selling desserts which come with souvenirs that you can take home with you.

    Mango Jelly and Orange Mousse with Souvenir Mug: ¥800

    Jelly, mousse and meringue whip is layered in the mug. This refreshing dessert not only looks pretty, but is also made up of a range of fun textures for you to enjoy. 

    You can take the souvenir mug back home with you. Its design features Mickey Mouse and friends dressed as pirates. 

    Coffee Roll Cake with Souvenir Plate: ¥800

    This is the perfect dessert for adults because it is slightly bitter. The layers of sponge, cream and bitter coffee makes for a range of delicious flavours. This plate’s design also features Mickey Mouse, who has dressed up as a pirate for the event. This would be perfect to take home with you to remember your trip!

     

    DisneySea is the perfect place to cool down this summer and create many wonderful memories, so please do pay a visit.

    Oh! Summer Banzai – Flames and water surround the Cinderella Castle

    Oh! My Summer is the first stage show to be held at the Cinderella Castle in six years and will offer up a whole new kind of summer evening entertainment at Tokyo Disneyland. It will feature the impressive use of flames and drenching sprays of water to entertain the park guests.

    Empire Grill – A full course meal at Disney Ambassador Hotel

    As part of the Tokyo Disneyland event Donald’s Hot Jungle Summer, the Disney Ambassador Hotel is serving a special dinner course.

    The course includes an assortment of ethnic flavours with beautiful plating. The sweetbreads doused in mango sauce have been made to look like Donald’s feet.

    For mains you can choose between quail farcie or beef loin. We ordered the latter. The meat is beautifully juicy and tender. It comes with feijoada on the side with chilli beans and vegetables. The crunchy tortillas are so delicious you’ll want seconds.

    The true standout from this gourmet course however is the dessert which is accompanied by Donald and Daisy Duck! It’s a mix of white chocolate mousse topped with fruit and jelly. The hearts on the plate add that extra kawaii flavour to this special dish. It almost seems a waste to eat it… is what we said as we wolfed it down.

    We also recommend the special Donald Hot Jungle Summer drink. Its tropical taste and colour makes it the perfect beverage for summer time.

    If you order the drink you even get one of these exclusive coasters.

  • Get Soaked at Tokyo DisneySea’s Pirates Summer Battle Event

    14.July.2019 | FEATURES / SPOT

    True summer is on the horizon as Japan’s rainy season slowly begins to let up. Tokyo DisneySea’s special summertime event Disney Pirates Summer began on July 7, and if you’re looking to cool down from the hot weather, you won’t want to miss the Pirates Summer Battle Get Wet show that is running until September 1.

     

    The show is inspired by the world of Pirates of the Caribbean and features Captain Jack Sparrow and Captain Barbossa and his band of pirate comrades. It felt like being thrown into the sea life ourselves when we visited.

     

    It begins with Barbossa, who occupies Port Paradiso, and some of his fellow pirates setting forth to plunder Captain Jack Sparrow’s legendary ship. The remaining pirate ruffians left at the port begin loitering around.

    The sound of a horn then burst across the water as the legendary ship appeared. On board is Jack Sparrow who has been defeated by Barbossa to which his fellow pirates cheer. Barbossa then set his eyes on us to become pirates too and shouted that he was going to find out if we had what it takes.

    The test began and water was fired at the crowd, the pirates yelling at us things, “So ye wanna be pirates?” and “You want treasure too, don’t ya?”

    It was at that moment that Jack Sparrow appeared once again on a rickety ship. The crowd were tested on what they had learned and were encouraged to intimidate Jack Sparrow, but…

    …all of a sudden a merry banquet began! Everybody soaked each other in water, sang and drink. It was during this time that the sly Jack Sparrow took action, causing Barbossa to enrage with fury.

  • 3 Must-Try Refreshing Summer Desserts at Tokyo DisneySea

    26.June.2019 | FEATURES / FOOD

    Hi, everyone, it’s Midori from MMN’s editorial team.

     

    Many people travel to Tokyo DisneySea during the summer break, which is great for them as when the hot season rolls around so too does the park’s deliciously refreshing desserts. Today, I will introduce 3 must-try desserts at Tokyo DisneySea for the sweltering weather this year♡

    Mango Ice Cream: ¥300

    If you head to American Waterfront in the park and go to Toyville Trolley Park you’ll find a wagon out the front selling this mango ice cream. This is being held as part of the Duffy and Friends event “Duffy’s Sunny Fun.” The ice cream cup has an adorable illustration of Duffy wearing a swimsuit♡

     

    This refreshing dessert is a mix of rich mango ice cream covered in mango sauce and cool shaved ice.

    Sea Salt Ice Cream Wafer: ¥300

    Another wagon can be found over in Mermaid Lagoon where they sea salt ice cream served inside a seashell wafer. The wafer is filled with slightly salty vanilla ice cream and a sweet and sour berry ice cream. You won’t find an ice cream served like this anywhere else♡ What’s more is that the ice cream inside doesn’t melt quickly so you can enjoy walking around and eating it without worrying about it dripping everywhere.

    Deep Sea (Pineapple Smoothie): ¥400

    Finally, near the Nemo & Friends SeaRider attraction in Port Discovery, you can get your hands on a pineapple smoothie called Deep Sea which is served in a cup with clownfish on the side♡

     

    The vivid blue jelly inside is the perfect match for Port Discovery. The jelly sits underneath pineapple flavoured smoothie, and inside the blue jelly are pieces of chewy yellow jelly for added textures.

     

    If you’re going to be waiting in line to get on one of the attractions why not keep yourself cool in the hot sun with one of these refreshing desserts? Have fun at Tokyo DisneySea!

  • Food Review: Tokyo DisneySea & Disney Ambassador Hotel’s Toy Story 4 Menu

    20.June.2019 | FEATURES / FOOD

    Hi, everyone. I’m Midori from MMN’s editorial team.

     

    To celebrate the release of Toy Story 4, Tokyo Disney Resort are currently holding an event titled “Fun Time With Toy Story 4” at Tokyo DisneySea which will run until September 1. Toy Story fans can roll up and enjoy themed food, merchandise and limited-time photos spots.

     

    I visited the park to try out the themed menus being served both in the park and at Disney Ambassador Hotel.

     

    Head on over to the Mexican restaurant Miguel’s El Dorado Cantina at Lose River Delta in Tokyo DisneySea® to find the limited edition food. It’s quite a distance from Toy Story Mania! so keep this in mind if you’re thinking of visiting there beforehand.

     

    I went ahead and ordered the special set at the counter.

    Special Plate Set: ¥1,580 (Tax Included)

    The special set includes pork cutlet with pancetta cream sauce, sausage on a bone, turmeric rice, mustard dip, and a soft drink. For an extra ¥400 you can get a dessert thrown in there too.

    If you look closely you will see that the rice is shaped into Woody’s face, making for an Instagrammable shot. The sausage being on a bone also means you can enjoy chomping it down.

    Condensed Milk Mousse & Orange Mango Cream: ¥500 (Tax Included) (*¥400 if you order with the Special Set)

    I recommend this dessert whether on its own or with the set. It comes with a cookie of Billy, Goat and Gruff and is topped with strawberries to give it a cute look. The orange and mango cream is refreshing and a perfect summertime dessert.

    Strawberry Jelly Melon Soda: ¥400 (Tax Included)

    At the same shop you can also order this striking and colourful melon soda. The bottom of the melon soda is packed full of strawberry jelly which taste delicious together.

    It also contains pieces of yellow jelly for even more textures. The cup has cute Toy Story illustrations on it.

    For an extra ¥500 when ordering a drink you can also get one of these rubber souvenir coasters. These coasters are sold at other shops in the park too with different designs. Check out the official website to see what coasters you can get and where.

     

    Over in the Hyperion Lounge at the Disney Ambassador® Hotel t hey are also serving a special cake set.

    Disney Pixar Toy Story 4 Special Cake Set: ¥2,000 / Serving 17:00-22:00 *Limited servings per day

    The cake set features an edible Woody and Forky image and mizuame water candy made to look like the moon. It’s combined with pineapple cake and yoghurt mousse to create a delicious dessert. The set comes with a choice of tea or coffee.

     

    Toy Story 4 will be released on July 21, 2019. Celebrate its release with a trip to Tokyo DisneySea this summer.
