  • Tokyo DisneySea’s New Halloween Show is a Thrilling Must-See

    17.September.2019 | FEATURES / SPOT

    Disney Halloween 2019 has finally begun, and this year, Tokyo DisneySea is serving guests a dark and mysterious Halloween experience to keep them on edge. The festivities will run all the way up to October 31.

     

    We visited the park to see Festival of Mystique, an all-new colourful and flamboyant show introduced this year. Here’s our report.

    The show began with music chiming in at Porto Paradiso in Mediterranean Harbor upon which trickled out lines of costumed friends of the sea. The beautifully dressed ladies at the front then spoke of a Halloween festival that was once held at the port, and their intention to resurrect it.

    Out came a merrymaking Mickey mouse and Disney cast aboard a ship, clad in cute outfits the likes of which have never been seen before at the park.

    Donald Duck, Goofy, Chip and Dale all got off the boat and headed towards the ladies, almost as if charmed by the allure of their beautiful and bewitching singing voices. This was followed by a sudden whimper by Pluto as he looked on towards Mickey. “Pluto, you’ve got to be a good boy! We’ve put a lot of effort into this Halloween,” Mickey said to him. When he said this he began to think that something strange was going on with the festival―like something was going to happen…

    The singing and dancing ladies went on to teach the onlooking guests a few dance moves to get involved with the show. Everybody danced together with Mickey as the leader.

     

    It wasn’t long however before the mood and tone of the music took an uncomfortable turn…

    Before we realised it, Mickey had been locked inside a cage! But he was dancing and having fun literally just seconds before―what happened?!

    Luckily, Minnie Mouse comes to the rescue to save Mickey and bring the fun Halloween festivity back. She takes the lead and dances with the guests this time.

     

    So what happened to the Disney characters, and what was their fate? We don’t want to spoil the ending, so you’ll have to see it for yourself this fall!

  • Universal Studios Japan Scales Up Halloween Events For 2019

    06.September.2019 | SPOT

    The ever-popular Universal Surprise Halloween event is set to return again this year to Universal Studios Japan and will run from September 6 to November 4.

    The event is set to be bigger than ever this year, with more attractions than ever before, as well as the event’s three main elements―Zekkyo Halloween, Otana Halloween, and Kowa Kawa Halloween―making use of the entire park. Look forward to a unique and spooky Halloween experience the very second you enter the park.

     

    Zekkyo Halloween

    Three main events run every year during Universal Surprise Halloween. The first of these we are taking a look at is Zekkyo (“Screaming”) Halloween, which plunges guests into terrifying experiences, the kind of scream-inducing encounters you conjure up in your imagination at Halloween.

     

    As part of Zekkyo Halloween, just some of the exciting and hair-raising attractions include the brand new horror maze which will see you running for your life through its twists and turns, the return of the extremely popular zombie dance show, a survival horror maze based off the Resident Evil game series, and much, much more.

     

    Otona Halloween

    Otona (“Adult”) Halloween is a more sophisticated kind of Halloween experience aimed at adults, clad with glamour and fashion, but certainly not free of scares.

     

    Halloween 2019 sees the return of the interactive theatre event Hotel Albert in a brand-new sequel, Hotel Albert 2: Requiem. We covered last year’s here, but in summary, it’s an immersive theatre experience in which guests act as participants in the play. Guests walked around the attraction as characters in the story and experienced a beautifully haunting tale unfold before them. What secrets does the sequel hold? You’ll have to attend to find out!

     

    A new horror restaurant, named Park Side Grill ~Cursed Banquet Of Roses~, will serve up magnificent meals while imbuing a sense of uncanny in its diners.

     

    Kowa Kawa Halloween

    Of course, it’s not all doom and gloom at Universal Surprise Halloween. Children will get to enjoy Kowa Kawa (“Creepy-Cute”) Halloween again this year in all its Halloween trickery. Minions and the Sesame Street cast will be present and dressed in mischievous costumes. The incredible Festa de Parade will run the street, and kids will be able to catch falling candy at Happy Trick Or Treat where it will rain down like a waterfall.

     

    USJ is a spearhead in Japan’s Halloween culture, so if you’re there for the spooky season, make sure you don’t miss out.

  • The Fairy Godmother Waves her Wand to Transform Tokyo Disney Resort for Christmas

    21.November.2019 | FEATURES / FOOD / SPOT

    Disney magic flows through the veins of Disney Resort throughout the year. However, when the clock strikes Christmas time, the entire resort transforms for Disney Christmas: the annual event where the streets sparkle the most compared to any other yearly event.

     

    With Christmas just over the horizon, the Fairy Godmother waved her magic wand over all areas of the park ー including the hotels. This year, a whole load of delicious Christmassy afternoon tea dishes have poofed onto the menu at Disney Ambassador Hotel’s Hyperion Lounge. Today, we’ll be looking at a few.

    Disney Christmas Cake Set: ¥1,800

    The Hyperion Lounge’s Disney Christmas Cake Set is shaped like a wreath and is garnished with your favourite Disney characters. 

    The wreath, which is sat on a bed of chocolate mousse, is woven from pistachio dough that is full of flavour and soft mousse. The sweet tanginess of the raspberry and cherries mixes with the sweet chocolate for a refreshing flavour that will fill your mouth. It is just too cute to eat. 

    Disney Christmas Special Drink: ¥1,300 *with Drink Coaster

    The Christmas Special Drink is an iced tea coloured with a raspberry and strawberry syrup. Above the syrup is a mixture of milk tea and peach juice which will send a fruity scent floating to your nose. Mix the syrup with the milk tea thoroughly for a magical flavour adventure. Mixing the drink will turn it a cute light pink colour, too.

    Two yellow chocolate stars shine in the middle of the drink. Can you spot them?

     

    This drink was created to look just like Santa Claus and the two stars represent the buttons on his clothes.

    This drink comes with a free original coaster, however, the coasters are in limited supply. Many restaurants around the resort are serving up special drinks which come with a free Disney Christmas coaster. The design available at Hyperion Lounge is Mini Mouse. Try collecting them for an extra special Disney Christmas. 

    Collect all the drink coasters and put them together for a Disney Christmas masterpiece!

     

    Whether inside the park or not, Tokyo Disney Resort never fails to make our hearts race with excitement. If you’re staying at the resort, don’t miss out on the restaurant’s irresistible Christmas drinks and desserts.

    Coffee Cream Tart w/ Souvenir Plate – ¥800 @ Mamma Biscotti’s Bakery

    This one’s for the adults: a coffee cream tart with a delightfully subtle bitterness to it. It’s not overly sweet, and so can be lapped up without leaving you with that sickly aftertaste. It also comes with a souvenir plate which has the same design as the mug.

     

    Christmas feasts to get you in the holiday season mood

    “Select Five” Set – ¥2,080 @ Horizon Bay Restaurant

    “Taste of Christmas” Food Programme: Pair drinks with food

    In the New York area of American Waterfront they’re holding a food programme called “Taste of Christmas” where they pair food with alcoholic and hot alcoholic drinks.

    Okonomiyaki Roll – ¥500 / Kirin Beer – ¥620 @ Restaurant Sakura

    This rolled okonomiyaki goes amazingly with beer. Its thin chewy wrap is filled with yakisoba noodles and ebi shrimp.

    Drinks and snacks to enjoy while waiting in line for attractions

    k up some popcorn served in a Christmas present basket decorated with cute illustrations of Mickey and company celebrating Christmas. This is also available at Tokyo Disneyland!

    Roll up to Hudson River Harvest in Tokyo DisneySea for a cup of this Hot Matcha Milk which has been filled with chewy matcha flavoured tapioca pearls, a texture that’s deliciously enjoyable when fused with the faint fragrance of the strawberry. A hot drink is the perfect thing to pass the time waiting in line.

     

    There’s lots of other limited-time food and drink to be enjoyed at Tokyo Disney Resort this Christmas besides our picks too. Treat your taste buds to some Disney delights this Christmas season.
