  • Live the Disney Princess Dream With Tokyo Disneyland Hotel’s Luxurious Afternoon Tea

    25.July.2019 | FEATURES / FOOD

    If you’ve had the chance to visit Tokyo Disneyland or Tokyo DisneySea you will have tried the many delicious dishes and drinks on offer at its variety of restaurants. But did you ever know that Tokyo Disney Resort also offers afternoon tea?

     

    Tokyo Disneyland Hotel serves the only afternoon tea set across the entire resort on occasion in line with certain events.

    We had the pleasure of joining Disney mega fan Kanako as she went to visit the hotel to try this very special afternoon tea.

    Tokyo Disneyland Hotel is the closest hotel to the entrance of Tokyo Disneyland. The first thing you will notice upon stepping inside is its use of Victorian decor. The ceiling also stands tall, opening the entire hotel up to give it a sense of space.

    The afternoon tea is sold at the Dreamers Lounge in the lobby. In line with the Donald’s Hot Jungle Summer event currently taking place at Tokyo Disneyland until September 1, the tea set is also “hot jungle summer” themed.

    The first thing to note about the three-stack set is how refreshing and summery it looks – a perfect selection for the hot season. It comes with sandwiches, hors d’oeuvre, scones, desserts, and a choice of tea or coffee.

    Kanako started with the very top plate. The plate itself is decorated with what is supposed to look like Donald’s footprints and splashes of water.

    The dessert on the left is haupia, a traditional Hawaiian dessert made with macadamia paste and roasted coconuts. It’s crunchy and has an incredible flavour.

    Sitting temptingly next to it is the panna cotta and melon coulis. It contains a single sage leaf which adds flavourful herb notes. The entire dessert itself has a satisfyingly refreshing taste which covers your taste buds with a single mouthful.

    The middle plate features two types of scones: plain and pineapple. They come with separate servings of clotted cream and honey to lather the scones in. The latter scone is cute in that it’s actually shaped like a pineapple. It’s crunchy and delicious and goes exquisitely with the accompanying tea.

    The tea menu has many options. Kanako went for the “Darjeeling Summer” from the premium tea selection. When you order from the premium menu your tea is prepared in a sleeping pot that is both cute and extravagant as you would expect with an afternoon tea set.

    The bottom plate contains a bunch of different appetisers including tuna and okra tartar, mango and mascarpone canapé, tomato and fish capellini, keema curry quiche, and an ethnic pork sandwich.

    Kanako was very happy with her hors d’oeuvre, saying: “Everything is delicious, but I really like the combination of the pork and the slightly chewy bread for the pork sandwich!”

    The chilled cone cream scoop was very refreshing and a perfect palate cleanser.

    Finally, the cute hot jungle summer dessert plate which caught our attention from the very start. It comes with a tropical cream cheese and passion fruit mousse, white grape and shiikuwasha jelly, and Peach Melba which looks like flowing magma.

     

    You might be surprised to find out that the jungle leaves on the plate aren’t actually part of the plate’s design but in fact green chocolate carefully sprayed on.

    Even the Goofy, Mickey and event logo on the plate are delicately made from chocolate. Once you know that you’ll definitely be reaching for the camera straight away!

     

    The Peach Melba is a lovely combination of peach compote and vanilla ice cream topped with raspberry sauce and almonds. Its mix sweet and sour flavours remind one of summertime.

    It’s not everyday you see a cream cheese mousse, is it? The one that Donald is sat on. Kanako especially enjoyed its passion fruit scent and velvety texture. It’s made even more delicious when eaten together with the jelly surrounding it.

    So, which was your favourite, Kanako-chan?

     

    “Everything tasted amazing, but my favourite was the haupia♡ It’s moderately sweet, and I really liked the flavour of the coconut! Everything in the afternoon tea set is cute down to the tiniest details, so it’s perfect for taking photos for social media. I definitely wanna go again!”

     

    The Donald’s Hot Jungle Summer themed afternoon tea set is being served from 11:30-17:00 until September 1, 2019. Places are limited so I recommend making a reservation in advance.

     

    Enjoy your summer to the fullest with this tropical afternoon tea set!

    Donald Duck is the star of Tokyo Disneyland right now with his Hot Jungle Summer festival that is running right now until September 1. It is packed full of events, limited time food and exclusive goodies all themed around summer.

     

    The limited time food is taking on water and fire motifs with restaurants serving up both cool and refreshing looking items and hot summery items. I paid a visit to the festival together with Kanako so we could try out these seasonal meals and drinks.

    Sparkling Drink (Blue Syrup) – ¥380

    We headed over to Boiler Room Bites located inside Adventureland and tired out their blue coloured “sparkling drink.” Blue syrup is added to the cup inside which chewy pieces of jelly bob up and down in the soda. Its appearance alone is enough to cool you down, it’s really pretty!

     

    They sell other sparkling drinks too, including a red coloured one with raspberry syrup and a yellow one with lemon syrup. It’s cute and fun for you and your friends to get different coloured ones♡

    For an extra ¥350 you can also get this huge yellow souvenir straw with Donald on the front. Simply kawaii♡

     

    Cream Shaved Ice (Tropical Fruits) – ¥550 (Tax Included)

    The tropical fruits flavour of Tokyo Disneyland’s popular cream shaved ice is available for the festival only. It’s a mix of shaved ice and soft serve ice cream.

    It’s sold at Troubadour Tavern in Fantasyland and comes with huge pieces of pineapple. It’s not too sweet and is the perfect refreshment for the hot summer weather.

    Special Set: ¥960 (Tax Included)

    You can get this special set at the refreshment corner of World Bazaar. It comes with a bright red hot dog topped with cheese and a vegetable sauce packed full of veggies. The sauce is spicy and will whet your appetite!

     

    It also comes with a drink and fries so you’re sure to get your lunchtime fill.

    Special Set: ¥1,080 (Tax Included)

    Camp Woodchuck Kitchen in Westernland is popular for its turkey legs. This mouthwatering set comes with a tasty hamburger seasoned with curry sauce and topped with cheese. Even in the hot summer this one is a must-try. It also comes with fries and a drink.

     

    The restaurant sells a whole load of other bites too like the onigiri burger, waffle sandwiches and more, all ideal for lunch. Sift through the menu and make your choice♡

    Mango Milk Soft Serve Ice Cream w/ Raspberry Sauce – ¥400 (Tax Included)

    If you want ice cream then you’ll want to head to Squeezer’s Tropical Juice Bar in Adventureland where they’re selling mango and milk flavoured soft serve ice cream drizzled in raspberry sauce. The sweetness of the ice cream and sourness of the raspberry sauce go together really well. It’s available for a limited time only so don’t miss out!

     

    That goes for everything else listed here, it’s all limited-time-only, so if you’re in Tokyo this summer then be sure to head on over ASAP!

    Together with the thundering music, thrilling dancing and refreshing water sprays, guests can look forward to a fiery show that in fact serves to cool them down from the summer heat.

    Empire Grill – A full course meal at Disney Ambassador Hotel

    As part of the Tokyo Disneyland event Donald’s Hot Jungle Summer, the Disney Ambassador Hotel is serving a special dinner course.

    The course includes an assortment of ethnic flavours with beautiful plating. The sweetbreads doused in mango sauce have been made to look like Donald’s feet.

    For mains you can choose between quail farcie or beef loin. We ordered the latter. The meat is beautifully juicy and tender. It comes with feijoada on the side with chilli beans and vegetables. The crunchy tortillas are so delicious you’ll want seconds.

    The true standout from this gourmet course however is the dessert which is accompanied by Donald and Daisy Duck! It’s a mix of white chocolate mousse topped with fruit and jelly. The hearts on the plate add that extra kawaii flavour to this special dish. It almost seems a waste to eat it… is what we said as we wolfed it down.

    We also recommend the special Donald Hot Jungle Summer drink. Its tropical taste and colour makes it the perfect beverage for summer time.

    If you order the drink you even get one of these exclusive coasters.

That’s why today we will be introducing you to foods and drinks that will keep you cool and refreshed in this baking heat.

     

    A Cute Mickey Biscuit Ice Cream ♡

    Head to ICE CREAM CONES at World Bazaar to get your hands on a soft serve ice cream with chocolate (¥500).

Finally, a biscuit decorated with Mickey’s winky face is placed on top. 

     

    The shop’s interior is decorated with cute pastel colours which make it the perfect spot for a picture, however, a picture with Cinderella’s castle in the background is also a grand idea.

    This is perfect for those of you who are looking for something both refreshing and cute. The ice cream has a rejuvenating flavour and tastes perfect along with the bitter cone.

     

    A Refreshing Cold Meal: Beef Salad Udon Noodles

    This one is recommended for those of you who are hungry but want to eat something cool rather than a burger. If this is you, head to Plazma Ray’s Diner at Tomorrowland for their cold beef karubi udon (¥780).

     

    Thick cold noodles are served in a delicious soup along with pieces of beef, aubergine, okra and other summer vegetables. It even includes a pink fish paste cake cut into the shape of Mickey’s face. You are bound to finish this refreshing meal quickly on a hot summer’s day.

    Cool chocolate and marshmallows are squished between the two biscuits. Have you noticed the giant eye on the top of the biscuit? You just won’t be able to resist taking a photo. When you’re slightly peckish, make sure to give it a try!

     

    A Moderately Sweet Refreshing Drink

    This one is for the coffee-lovers. Pop by Café Orléans to pick up the D’s Delights Vanilla Smoothie & Coffee Jelly (¥500). Underneath the vanilla smoothie is a layer of coffee jelly. The top of the smoothie is filled with cocoa. We recommend you thoroughly mix the vanilla smoothie and coffee jelly before drinking it. The sweetness of the smoothie and the bitterness of the coffee jelly are a match made in heaven. When you’re tired of walking and need something sweet and refreshing, this drink is sure to power you up back to full battery.

     

    Fruity Shaved Ice With Actual Fruit Pieces

    Last but not least is the Shaved Ice (¥400) which is sold at many places including Huey, Dewey and Louie’s Good Time Cafe. There are two flavours to choose from; Japanese pear and Japanese orange. The sauce poured all over your ice contains actual pieces of fruit that will bring you right back to life. If you pay an extra ¥400, you can get your shaved ice served in a Toy Story-themed souvenir cup that you can take back home with you.

     

    With all the sun and excitement at Disneyland, you could overheat, so please take care and make sure to rejuvenate yourself with something refreshing and delicious!

According to a legend that originated in China, two deities that were in love called Orihime and Hikoboshi could only meet once every year. Their meeting is represented by the stars Vega and Altair.  To celebrate the Star Festival, Tokyo Disneyland and DisneySea are holding a special event to celebrate called Tanabata Days . This event will run from June 6 to July 7, 2019. There will be so much going on, but one thing I’m super excited about is the Tanabata Greeting Parade!

     

    From Mickey and Minnie who will make an entrance by rickshaw, there are so many characters you just have to see.

    Mickey and Minnie will be dressed as the deities Orihime and Hikoboshi. Mickey and Minnie are always riding the giant floats at parades. As the rickshaw is so small in comparison to the floats, this is an opportunity to feel closer to them both.

    Mickey and Minnie’s friends will be joining in the celebration in a completely brand new way. They will be dressed in Japanese-style clothes holding bamboo leaves. Donald and Daisy will be on the floats, but all the others will be taking part in the parade on foot! This is a fantastic way to get up close to your favourite characters.

    Disney Princes and Princesses will also be making an appearance at the Tanabata Greeting Parade. On a normal day, you can sometimes see the princes and princesses around the park greeting the guests, however seeing a princess walking romantically with her prince is a completely rare and precious sight! The princesses will also not be riding on the floats so you can feel close to them.

    Happily Ever After ♡

     

    The music includes Disney arrangements of children’s Star Festival songs such as Bamboo Leaves are Rustling (Sasanoha Sarasara) and the nostalgic Tanabata Sama. These are songs that Japanese people grew up with and have heard many times. The park will definately deliver a very special arrangment of these songs!

     

    Come enjoy the fun of the star festival this year with your favourite Disney characters!

  • Tokyo Disneyland: Write Down Your Wishes at the Tanabata Days Event

    10.June.2019 | FEATURES / SPOT

    Hi, everyone. I’m Midori, part of the editorial team here at MOSHI MOSHI NIPPON.

     

    Tanabata, also known at the Star Festival, is a traditional annual festival in Japan which celebrates the meeting of the deities Orihime and and Hikoboshi who are only able to see each other once a year. Right now at Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea a special Tanabata event is being held called “Tanabata Days.” It began on June 6 and will run until July 7.

     

    During the Tanabata season in Japan, people write their wishes on tanzaku, small pieces of paper, and hang them up before praying to the stars. If you head on over to Tokyo Disneyland right now you can do just that!

    At the entrance to Tokyo Disneyland in the World Bazaar is the “Wishing Place” where guests are invited to jot down their wishes. You’ll find it by spotting the two Tanabata decorations of Mickey and Minnie. If you look really close you’ll see that the characters are holding their own washing cards too. Be sure to sneak a peek♡

    You’ll also find Donald and Daisy to the side of Cinderella’s castle.

    Guests can get their own wishing cards from one of the cast members dressed in yukata. The cards are yellow. The cast also have pens and desks prepared for guests too.

    Once you’ve written your wish the next step is to hang it at the Wishing Place. The colours of the cards are different at Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea. Perhaps your wish will be granted?

    When the evening settles in the Wishing Place is lit up and renamed the Starlight Wishing Place. The illuminations represent the stars and constellations that float in the Milky Way, all references to Tanabata.

    You’re sure to enjoy a magical and romantic Tanabata at this event, so be sure to check it out. The visuals and lights are of course gorgeous, but the music is wonderful!

     

    Perhaps your dream to the stars will come true at Disneyland’s Wishing Place♪
