  • 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.

    Hi, everyone! It’s Midori from MMN’s editorial team.

     

    Donald Duck is the star of Tokyo Disneyland right now with his Hot Jungle Summer festival that is running right now until September 1. It is packed full of events, limited time food and exclusive goodies all themed around summer.

     

    The limited time food is taking on water and fire motifs with restaurants serving up both cool and refreshing looking items and hot summery items. I paid a visit to the festival together with Kanako so we could try out these seasonal meals and drinks.

    Sparkling Drink (Blue Syrup) – ¥380

    We headed over to Boiler Room Bites located inside Adventureland and tired out their blue coloured “sparkling drink.” Blue syrup is added to the cup inside which chewy pieces of jelly bob up and down in the soda. Its appearance alone is enough to cool you down, it’s really pretty!

     

    They sell other sparkling drinks too, including a red coloured one with raspberry syrup and a yellow one with lemon syrup. It’s cute and fun for you and your friends to get different coloured ones♡

    For an extra ¥350 you can also get this huge yellow souvenir straw with Donald on the front. Simply kawaii♡

     

    Cream Shaved Ice (Tropical Fruits) – ¥550 (Tax Included)

    The tropical fruits flavour of Tokyo Disneyland’s popular cream shaved ice is available for the festival only. It’s a mix of shaved ice and soft serve ice cream.

    It’s sold at Troubadour Tavern in Fantasyland and comes with huge pieces of pineapple. It’s not too sweet and is the perfect refreshment for the hot summer weather.

    Special Set: ¥960 (Tax Included)

    You can get this special set at the refreshment corner of World Bazaar. It comes with a bright red hot dog topped with cheese and a vegetable sauce packed full of veggies. The sauce is spicy and will whet your appetite!

     

    It also comes with a drink and fries so you’re sure to get your lunchtime fill.

    Special Set: ¥1,080 (Tax Included)

    Camp Woodchuck Kitchen in Westernland is popular for its turkey legs. This mouthwatering set comes with a tasty hamburger seasoned with curry sauce and topped with cheese. Even in the hot summer this one is a must-try. It also comes with fries and a drink.

     

    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!

     

    That goes for everything else listed here, it’s all limited-time-only, so if you’re in Tokyo this summer then be sure to head on over ASAP!

    15.July.2019 | FEATURES / FOOD / SPOT

    Tokyo Disney Resort’s® summer events have officially begun. There are plenty of exciting events to experience during the daytime this summer at Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea, but there are equally as many fun evening events too.

     

    Let’s take a closer look at what you can look forward to during summer nights this year at both parks and the Disney Ambassador Hotel.

     

    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.


    A colourful jungle background will provide the setting for the show with Donald Duck as the main character who will be joined by Mickey, Minnie and other members of the Disney cast.

    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.

  • 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.

    With water shooting and flames blazing during the final battle, who came out victorious? You’ll have to visit Tokyo DisneySea to find your! Enter the wild world of the pirates and get wet this summer for Disney Pirates Summer.

  • Get Drenched With Zootopia Characters This Summer At Tokyo Disneyland

    14.July.2019 | FEATURES / SPOT

    Every year, Disneyland puts on a show where everyone gets soaked. This year’s show features Nick and Judy from Zootopia. With Cinderella’s Castle as the main stage, large quantities of water is sprayed everywhere. I headed over to check out the commotion as soon as possible with Instagrammer Kanako.

     

    This summer, the event Judy and Nick’s Jumpin’ Splash is taking place four times every day. It is possible to apply to experience the fun at the centre stage area close to the castle, however, winners are chosen at random. You can apply for all of the showings except the first one of the day. You can apply by smartphone app or by heading to Tomorrowland Hall. 

    If I still haven’t made myself clear, the central viewing area will be splashed with lots of water, so if you are going to take part, make sure you wear a raincoat. You can buy one from the shops when you get to Disneyland. 

    While the movie’s theme song “Try Everything” plays, Judy and Nick take to the stage and dance. 

     

    Just when everyone gets into the dancing…

    Everyone gets soaked by water that surges out from Cinderella’s Castle! We were carelessly standing right in the middle of the danger zone so we were mercilessly drenched. I recommend you keep clear of the centre of the area and wear your raincoat as tight as you can!

    For the latter half of the show, the dancers grabbed hoses and continued to drench us. Everything was happening in the moment. It was all an exciting blur that was over in what felt like seconds. 

    This show showered away the summer heat within seconds. You can enjoy getting soaked in the centre of the action or watch other people getting soaked from a safe distance. There are only three chances to take part each day. This is a limited chance to make extra special memories, so please apply!

     

    It’s not as bad as it seems. If you wear your raincoat properly, your clothes will not get wet, so there is no need to worry about ruining your glamorous look if that is the reason you don’t want to take part. 

     

    Plunge straight into the summer fun at Tokyo Disneyland!

  • 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.

  • Sleigh Bells Ring at Tokyo Disneyland This Year With Plenty Of Food & Merchandise to Go Around

    11.November.2019 | FEATURES / FOOD / 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 a taste of the festive fun at the parks recently, so we’re going to showcase some more of the seasonal food and merry merchandise you can get your hands on this Christmas at Tokyo Disneyland.

     

    Food that makes you want to kick back and enjoy a nice break

     

    Special Set – ¥1,500 @ Grandma Sara’s Kitchen

    Grandma Sara’s has created the perfect hot lunch for warming up cold guests this year, adorned with a clam and seafood tomato cream, cheese and white sauce. Dip your bread into the rich sauce and tuck in! For dessert, you get a cranberry cake inspired by the look of a snow-tipped Christmas tree.

     

    Hot drinks of all kinds

    ‘Tis the season to stay warm, and so Tokyo Disneyland has devised a line-up of tasty drinks to warm the cockles of your heart, with flavours ranging from ruby chocolate to matcha and tapioca cheese teaーa unique flavour that’s all the rage right now.

     

    We actually covered these drinks in detail last Monday, so check out our report here.

    Deck the halls with these dessert & souvenir sets

    Cranberry & Tea Cake With Souvenir Cup – ¥800 @ Sweetheart Cafe and elsewhere

    Strawberry Dessert With Souvenir Cup – ¥800 @ Sweetheart Cafe and elsewhere

    Head to the Sweetheart Cafe to enjoy some desserts which come with cute take-home souvenirs, like cups and plates. The cranberry and tea cake is a subtly sweet cake with a fragrant tea flavour and filled with sweet and sour cranberries.

     

    The strawberry dessert is like strawberry shortcake with ascending layers of cake batter, cream, and strawberries. It’s topped with holly to give it that Christmas-y finish.

    Chocolate Doughnut – ¥380 @ Cleo’s and elsewhere

    The chocolate doughnuts at Cleo’s are completely lathered in a chocolate danish-like dough and custard cream.

    The doughnuts even come in this cute Mickey and Minnie packaging, who are dressed ready and for giving gifts to guests.

    If you pay an extra ¥700 you can get this adorable pouch featuring Mickey, Minnie, Donald and Daisy as snowmen.

     

    Have a merry little Christmas with these holiday season goodies

    Headband – ¥1,800

    Fun Cap – ¥3,000 / Plush Toy Wristband – ¥1,700

    Feel happy simply by placing these Mickey & Minnie headband ears and getting into party mode. The park has also developed a Christmas version of the Pluto fun cap so he has reindeer antlers and holly attached. Both items were previously available in a pre-sale on the park app, so depending on the shop you visit, they may have none left in stock. But if you see one, be sure to grab it quick!

     

    There’s also a Mickey version of the Minnie Mouse plush toy wristband. Wear one and have your friend or loved one wear the other!

    Popcorn Basket – ¥2,400 @ The Gazebo (Popcorn Wagon)

    Pick up some popcorn served in a Christmas present basket decorated with cute illustrations of Mickey and company celebrating Christmas.
