Check Out Tokyo Disneyland’s Adorable ‘It’s Very Minnie!’ Show

17.January.2020 | FEATURES / SPOT

Tokyo Disneyland has launched its Minnie-tastic programme Very Very Minnie on January 10 and it will run until March 19, 2020. The programme is packed with exciting limited period events including themed decorations, merchandise and special foods and drinks. Today we’ll be focussing on the It’s Very Minnie! show. 

 

Presented at Showbase, It’s Very Minnie! is a musical revue show featuring Minnie Mouse and her Disney friends. The show is a mixture of Latin music, romance and even club scenes. As Minnie and friends dance rhythmically to the music, their colourful costumes colour the stage in a variety of styles. Each show lasts approximately 25 minutes. 

Minnie dances in a classic red and white polka dot outfit. Her performance to Minnie Oh Minnie will have you singing along in no time. 

As the lively music kicked in, Donald, Chip and Dale took to the stage in their Latin costumes.

As the music was constantly switching, the characters and dancers changed costumes at lightning speed.

Finally, Mickey and Minnie danced together. Just watching the couple dance will warm your heart. 

Seeing Minnie in a beautiful pink dress, the crowd couldn’t help but scream “so cute!”

The show was a mix of the park’s many nostalgic tunes and Minnie in her many adorable outfits. From the very moment the intro played and Minnie’s figure appeared, fans instantly went wild. Watching fans chant their love for Minnie was very touching to see. 

The timing of the dancers and characters was perfect. They even got down from the stage to interact with the audience, who were singing and clapping along to the music with excitement. 

Some songs and costumes in the show were even having their debut. The stage was buzzing with so much excitement that it was impossible to look away. 

Just watching Minnie’s variety of expressions will make you fall in love with her even more. You will want to go see her again and again. This is one of the best shows in history that Disneyland has ever put on. 

Whether you’re a Minnie fan or not, anybody is bound to enjoy this fun-filled show.

    The world of Beauty and the Beast brought to life

    The area connects Belle’s village to Beast’s castle by way of the forest. At the entrance to the village, guests will immediately spot the cottage of Maurine, Belle’s father and the vilage inventor. Beyond that is Gaston’s water fountain as well as a restaurant inspired by Gaston’s bar. There are also other shops that Belle visits in the film, such as the bookshop. It’s like stepping into the magical world itself.

    When you leave the village and head through the forest, you are met by the spectacle that is Beast’s castle, coloured in a cute pink. There’s a large-scale attraction inside called “Enchanted Tale of Beauty and the Beast.”

     

    The Tokyo Disneyland-original attraction “Enchanted Tale of Beauty and the Beast”

  • Kaori’s Easy Recipe: Learn to Make Mickey & Minnie Mouse Cookie Cupcakes

    09.February.2020 | FEATURES / FOOD

    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.

    For this edition of Kaori’s Easy Recipe, I used a recipe from the Disney dessert cookbook Oishii Disney Sweets Recipes to make “Mickey & Minnie Cookie Cupcakes” which make for the perfect Valentine’s Day treat. It’s a super easy recipe to follow – I even made the cookies and ribbon using ingredients readily available at the supermarket. So don’t hesitate, give this easy recipe a go for yourself.

     

    1: Ingredients (Makes 6 cupcakes measured 7cm)

    2 medium eggs (40g egg yolk/60g egg white)

    60g granulated sugar

    2tsp vegetable oil

    1-2tsp lemon juice

    45g weak flour

     

    2

    ①Put the egg yolk, vegetable oil, and lemon juice into a bowl and mix well.

    ②In a separate bowl, whisk the egg white and gradually add in the granulated sugar. When adding the sugar, I recommend doing it in four portions. So add one quarter of the sugar, mix, repeat.

    ③Once you’ve added all the sugar, mix well to incorporate into the egg white.

    ④Gradually add the weak flour. Do this in three portions like in step ②. Please be careful as to not mix too vigorously when adding the flour as it will result in the dough losing its loose texture and becoming firm.

    3: Pour the mix into the cups so that 70-80% of the cups are full. Bake at 190℃ for 12 minutes, then bring the heat down to 170℃ and cook for a further 3 minutes.

    4: Now it’s time to make Mickey Mouse. I used one big Oreo cookie and two little ones, the latter of which don’t have filling. Like in the photo below, half the bigger cookie, place the smaller ones inside, and place the bigger half back on. If you don’t have anything to stick the cookie back on, you can use the filling of the Oreo.

    5: I used melted to chocolate to fix my Mickey Mouse together. If you add red M&M’s like I did in the photo below, Mickey transforms into Minnie.

    6: Once the cupcakes are done baking, make an incision in the top to place the Mickey and Minnie cookies into.

    7: Add some fresh cream to decorate, and your Valentine’s Day Disney cupcakes are complete!

    Kaori invites you into her world of character-themed food dishes in her recipe series. Be sure to check out her Instagram where she has uploaded many pictures of her character dishes!

     

    There are many other cute Disney recipes available in the book that Kaori used too, so if you’re in Japan or have access to Japanese books, then why not pick up a copy?
