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.

    The world is about to get its first Big Hero 6 themed park attraction, “The Happy Ride with Baymax,” at Tokyo Disneyland when it opens on April 15, 2020.

     

    In promotion of the exciting new ride, Tokyo Disneyland has announced it will serve six different Baymax inspired menu items starting from April 8ーa week before The Happy Ride with Baymax’s grand opening.

    Baymax Curry – ¥1,480 @ Center Street Coffeehouse

    When you think of Baymax, you think of his white, chubby round face and body. Well, that image has been brought to life in this curry dish, with Baymax’s cute appearance recreated in the form of white rice. The dish takes inspiration from the spicy chicken wings made by Hiro’s auntie, Cass.

    Special Pancake Set – ¥1,080 @ Center Street Coffeehouse / Time Served: 13:00-18:00 (Not serving June 1, 2020 – September 2, 2020)

    Like the curry, this pancake set is also sold at Center Street Coffeehouse. It comes with two thick pancakes topped with Baymax’s faceーwhich is a Japanese ‘manju’ steamed cakeーassorted berries, strawberry sauce, and other delicious delights, mixing together Japanese and western flavours.

    Sparkling Tapioca Tea (Cheese Cream & Berries) – ¥600 @ Tomorrowland Terrace / Time Served: 14:00-17:00

    BB Popcorn w/Basket – ¥2,600 @ The Big Pop

    There’s also a dessert-style drink at Tomorrowland Terrace which is a berry flavoured ice tea packed with dollops of cheese cream, as well as popcorn which comes with a popcorn basket of Baymax riding. This will be sold at the new popcorn shop, The Big Pop, which is opening on April 15.
