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.

  • 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!

    The restaurant sells a whole load of other bites too like the onigiri burger, waffle sandwiches and more, all ideal for lunch. Sift through the menu and make your choice♡

    Mango Milk Soft Serve Ice Cream w/ Raspberry Sauce – ¥400 (Tax Included)

    If you want ice cream then you’ll want to head to Squeezer’s Tropical Juice Bar in Adventureland where they’re selling mango and milk flavoured soft serve ice cream drizzled in raspberry sauce. The sweetness of the ice cream and sourness of the raspberry sauce go together really well. It’s available for a limited time only so don’t miss out!

    Together with the thundering music, thrilling dancing and refreshing water sprays, guests can look forward to a fiery show that in fact serves to cool them down from the summer heat.

     

    If you’re looking to cool down during the day then be sure to check out the Pirates of the Caribbean themed Pirates Summer Battle and Zootopia themed Judy and Nick’s Jumpin’ Splash events too to get sprayed with cold water.

    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.

  • Enjoy Tanabata Star Festival-Limited Drinks and Sweet Treats at Disneyland

    13.June.2019 | FEATURES / FOOD / SPOT

    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.

  • Wish Upon a Star at Japan’s Star Festival at Disneyland ♡

    11.June.2019 | FEATURES / SPOT

    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 that were in love called Orihime and Hikoboshi could only meet once every year. Their meeting is represented by the stars Vega and Altair.  To celebrate the Star Festival, 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. There will be so much going on, but one thing I’m super excited about is the Tanabata Greeting Parade!

     

    From Mickey and Minnie who will make an entrance by rickshaw, there are so many characters you just have to see.

    Mickey and Minnie will be dressed as the deities Orihime and Hikoboshi. Mickey and Minnie are always riding the giant floats at parades. As the rickshaw is so small in comparison to the floats, this is an opportunity to feel closer to them both.

    Mickey and Minnie’s friends will be joining in the celebration in a completely brand new way. They will be dressed in Japanese-style clothes holding bamboo leaves. Donald and Daisy will be on the floats, but all the others will be taking part in the parade on foot! This is a fantastic way to get up close to your favourite characters.

    Disney Princes and Princesses will also be making an appearance at the Tanabata Greeting Parade. On a normal day, you can sometimes see the princes and princesses around the park greeting the guests, however seeing a princess walking romantically with her prince is a completely rare and precious sight! The princesses will also not be riding on the floats so you can feel close to them.

    Happily Ever After ♡

     

    The music includes Disney arrangements of children’s Star Festival songs such as Bamboo Leaves are Rustling (Sasanoha Sarasara) and the nostalgic Tanabata Sama. These are songs that Japanese people grew up with and have heard many times. The park will definately deliver a very special arrangment of these songs!

     

    Come enjoy the fun of the star festival this year with your favourite Disney characters!

  • 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♪
