Battle The Heat With 5 Cute, Refreshing Foods and Drinks at Tokyo Disneyland

18.June.2019 | FEATURES / FOOD / SPOT

The Star Festival celebration Tanabata Days is currently underway at Disneyland, but it’s already over 30 degrees outside. You’ll find yourself all sweaty just by standing up. That’s why today we will be introducing you to foods and drinks that will keep you cool and refreshed in this baking heat.

 

A Cute Mickey Biscuit Ice Cream ♡

Head to ICE CREAM CONES at World Bazaar to get your hands on a soft serve ice cream with chocolate (¥500). A wafer cone is filled with  delicious soft serve ice cream and then topped with chocolate sauce and bright, colourful chocolate. Finally, a biscuit decorated with Mickey’s winky face is placed on top. 

 

The shop’s interior is decorated with cute pastel colours which make it the perfect spot for a picture, however, a picture with Cinderella’s castle in the background is also a grand idea.

This is perfect for those of you who are looking for something both refreshing and cute. The ice cream has a rejuvenating flavour and tastes perfect along with the bitter cone.

 

A Refreshing Cold Meal: Beef Salad Udon Noodles

This one is recommended for those of you who are hungry but want to eat something cool rather than a burger. If this is you, head to Plazma Ray’s Diner at Tomorrowland for their cold beef karubi udon (¥780).

 

Thick cold noodles are served in a delicious soup along with pieces of beef, aubergine, okra and other summer vegetables. It even includes a pink fish paste cake cut into the shape of Mickey’s face. You are bound to finish this refreshing meal quickly on a hot summer’s day.

 

Perfect for the Peckish : A Sweet Treat

The same shop sells a Monsters, Inc-themed Mike sandwich biscuit that is filled with chocolate ganache (¥400). This is the perfect pick-me-up when you’re in search of a quick energy boost.

Cool chocolate and marshmallows are squished between the two biscuits. Have you noticed the giant eye on the top of the biscuit? You just won’t be able to resist taking a photo. When you’re slightly peckish, make sure to give it a try!

 

A Moderately Sweet Refreshing Drink

This one is for the coffee-lovers. Pop by Café Orléans to pick up the D’s Delights Vanilla Smoothie & Coffee Jelly (¥500). Underneath the vanilla smoothie is a layer of coffee jelly. The top of the smoothie is filled with cocoa. We recommend you thoroughly mix the vanilla smoothie and coffee jelly before drinking it. The sweetness of the smoothie and the bitterness of the coffee jelly are a match made in heaven. When you’re tired of walking and need something sweet and refreshing, this drink is sure to power you up back to full battery.

 

Fruity Shaved Ice With Actual Fruit Pieces

Last but not least is the Shaved Ice (¥400) which is sold at many places including Huey, Dewey and Louie’s Good Time Cafe. There are two flavours to choose from; Japanese pear and Japanese orange. The sauce poured all over your ice contains actual pieces of fruit that will bring you right back to life. If you pay an extra ¥400, you can get your shaved ice served in a Toy Story-themed souvenir cup that you can take back home with you.

 

With all the sun and excitement at Disneyland, you could overheat, so please take care and make sure to rejuvenate yourself with something refreshing and delicious!

  • 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♪

  • 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.

  • 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.
