    At the heart of Fantasyland, hidden away in the middle of a fairy tale-like forest, is Tokyo Disneyland’s first proper indoor theatre.

    The outside of theatre features a warm and welcoming appearance, and the inside features forest-like design with pillars that look like they are made of trees and a chandelier lit by candlelight. The theatre is also decorated with beautiful tapestries and wall art of the many forest animals that appear throughout Disney’s filmography.

Flavours include Cookie Cream (the first time the park has sold this flavour), Caramel & Cheese, and Strawberry Milk.

    22.November.2019 | FASHION / FEATURES

    Frozen 2 dropped its icy embrace on the world today and Disney fans are more thrilled than ever.

     

    All of the characters in the film have their own charm, but it’s Elsa whose beauty has captivated the world over. With the release of the new film and the cold approach of winter, why not try doing your makeup like the queen of Arendelle?

     

    Step ①: Cheeks

    Fallen pink snowflakes on those sweet cheeks

    Use a blueish-pink blush and apply lower than your cheekbone and on the tip of your nose. Blend in a circular motion to make the blush round. This will create a white, almost transparent glow and will uplift your cheeks.

     

    Step ②: Eyeshadow

    Bewitching purple to stand out in a snowy world

    Apply a reddish-purple eyeshadow over your eyelidd. A tip is to connect the outline the inner and outer corners of your eyes with a straight line. Then add a bold and shiny purple shadow on top of that across your eyelids. Apply to your lower eyelid too beneath the pupil. If the outline of your eyeshadow has an oblong shape when you open your eye, that’s good.

     

    Step ③: Eyeliner

    Eyeliner to look like a sophisticated queen

    Using a black liquid eyeliner, follow your eyeline from the inner corner to the outer corner of your eye. Extend the outer line a little and make it parallel. For your lower eyelid, use a black pencil to fill between your eyelashes.

     

    Step ④: Lipstick

    Pink lips ready to sing

    Use a blueish-pink lipstick on your lips, and make sure it’s layered on nice and thick to serve that sweet aesthetic.

     

    An elegant queen that can harness the ice and the snow

    Elsa has the power to turn anything she touches into ice. If you catch a gaze of her enchanting purple eyeshadowed eyes, your heart is sure to skip a beat. If you follow these four makeup points, you too can easily look like the ice queen herself. A perfect look for dates, parties and get-togethers this winter season.

     

     

    The long-awaited sequel to Disney’s blockbuster animated is finally upon us. The first Frozen film touched the entire world with its frosty beauty with both its story and music. Let It Go in particular was a worldwide phenomenon, and was an immense hit in Japan too.

    Frozen 2 sees Elsa embark on a dangerous journey with Anna, Kristoff, Olaf and Sven as she discovers why she was born with magical powers, the answer to which is threatening her kingdom.

    The new film’s main theme, Into The Unknown, captures the complex feelings and emotions Elsa holds as she steps forth, with all her anxieties and hopes, into a new world.

  • 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.

  • Kaori’s Easy Recipe: Learn to Make Frozen 2 Milk Tea Muffins

    19.November.2019 | FEATURES / FOOD / MOVIE

    With just a small bit of ingenuity, turn everyday food into something cute using Kaori’s easy recipe! With a few simple ideas, an ordinary recipe magically transforms into a cute dish.

    In this recipe, you’ll learn to make cupcakes based on the upcoming Disney film Frozen 2 which is set to hit theatres worldwide on November 22, 2019. These cupcakes are inspired by the Anna and Elsa poster design for the movie. This recipe has parts that are a little more tricky compared to my usual recipes, but put yourself to the test and you’ll end up with something delicious!

    Milk Tea Muffin Ingredients (Makes 5)

    100g weak flour

    70g unsalted butter

    50g granulated sugar

    1 egg

    1 tsp bottled chestnut syrup

    5-6 chestnuts preserved in syrup

    50ml milk tea

    *To make the milk tea, add one black tea bag into 70ml of milk and draw 50ml from that

     

    Bean Paste Ingredients

    500g white bean paste (shiro-an in Japanese)

    25g unsalted butter (room temperature)

    20ml milk

    A bit of of vanilla extract

    A bit of Wilton White icing colour

    1. First, we’ll make the milk tea muffins. Bring the unsalted butter to room temperature and whisk with a hand mixer. Add the granulated sugar and continue to whisk. Whisk the egg fully, and then add slowly to the mixture. Make sure to add the egg slowly so as to not split the butter.

    2. Sieve the wheat flour and baking powder and add to the mix. Slowly add the milk tea and continue to whisk to bring the mixture together.

    3. Add a teaspoon of the chestnut syrup. Chop the chestnuts and add those too, then mix once again.

    4. Add 70-80% of the mixture equally between five cupcake cups. Bake at 170° for approximately 25 minutes.

     

    5. Next, we’ll make the bean paste cream. Do this by mixing together the white bean paste, unsalted butter, milk, vanilla extract, and Wilton White all at once. The Wilton White makes the cream turn a pure white colour.

    6: Allow the muffins to cool, lather over the bean paste to taste, and finally decorate. All done!

    I added colouring to chocolate plastic for the chest part of the dress. Then I cut it up and added it to the cupcakes. I hope you enjoyed the recipe, be sure to try making your own movie-inspired handmade desserts at home too!

    The long-awaited sequel to Disney’s blockbuster animated is right around the corner. The first Frozen film touched the entire world with its frosty beauty with both its story and music. Let It Go in particular was a worldwide phenomenon, and was an immense hit in Japan too.

    Frozen 2 will see Elsa embark on a dangerous journey with Anna, Kristoff, Olaf and Sven as she discovers why she was born with magical powers, the answer to which is threatening her kingdom.
