This tome includes details and images from each of the past One Piece Premier Shows and is a must-have for any fan. It also includes a message from the original series author Eiichiro Oda. 

    One ‘music festival’ themed item is the Festival Towel. Playing a major role in the 2022 version of the One Piece Premier Show, the item is decorated with a limited edition 15th-anniversary design. Guests can also grab a collectible bracelet and salted candy in a unique soda can-inspired package. Of course, it wouldn’t be a One Piece event without some straw hats for sale!

    This year’s menu includes everything from Nami’s Orange Frappe to Frankie’s Super American Hot Dog. Each of these tasty dishes will be perfect for posting on social media! Next to the Lost World Restaurant, guests can enjoy some additional goodies from the One Piece Food Cart including Sanji’s Pork Ribs and Sanji’s Peach and Lemon Frozen Smoothie, perfect for beating the heat.
