Hi everyone, this is Midori from MMN’s Editorial Department.
Are you familiar with Japan’s Star Festival called Tanabata? According to a legend that originated in China, two deities who were in love called Orihime and Hikoboshi could only meet once every year. Their meeting is represented by the stars Vega and Altair. Their meeting is celebrated yearly in Japan with the Star Festival. To join in the celebration, Tokyo Disneyland and DisneySea are holding a special event to celebrate called Tanabata Days . This event will run from June 6 to July 7, 2019.
Today I’m going to introduce you to the limited edition sweet treats you can indulge in during the Tanabata Days festival period.
Shaved Ice with Cream: ￥550
Check out the Troubadour Tavern Cream Shaved Ice which consists of a cute and colourful mix of blue and pink ♡. A mountain of peach shaved ice sits on of a layer of blue jelly. This is topped with soft serve ice cream and sprinkles of Tanabata stars.
Sparkling Jelly Drink (grape): ￥380
Next is a drink that is limited to Boiler Room Bites and Captain Hook’s Galley: The Sparkling Jelly Drink! It will leave you feeling refreshed and full of summer vibes. Enjoy the flavour of the sparkling soda along with grape jelly which is full of flavour. It is also fun to pop the yellow balls of jelly.
Grape & Blue Jelly with Souvenir Mug: ￥750
Disney has revived their tradition of desserts in souvenir cups again. This time, you can leave Disney Resort with a beautiful teacup decorated with Mickey and Minnie dressed as the Tanabata deities Orihime and Hikoboshi. This cute souvenir cup is only available during Tanabata Days, so be careful! Enjoy the beautiful color gradation of the blue and grape jelly. This is topped with a dusting of magical stars.
Not only do these summery Tanabata treats look good, but they are also very tasty. Tanabata Days ends on July 7, so if you want something, make sure you get your hands on it in time.
Running: June 6 ー July 7, 2019
