Tokyo Disneyland will be hosting its first “Disney Halloween Fun and Run” event on October 9th, the same day as “Taiiku no Hi”, an annual national holiday held in Japan that promotes health and sports. It is being held to celebrate 20 years since the park began holding Halloween events. It will happen in the park before opening hours and will require participants to dress up to make it a true Disney fun run. Tickets to participate went on sale on July 20th.


The “Disney Halloween Fun and Run” is a one-off program event that will give you the rare opportunity to enter the park before it opens to the public. Those joining in are to dress up as a Disney characters and run a fantastical course while being cheered on by other fellow Disney characters.




Everyone will begin at Cinderella’s castle before heading onward on a 2km adventure through Tomorrowland, Fantasyland, Westernland, Adventureland and more, all around the world of Disney until they reach World Bazaar. During the run, everyone will be cheered on by the Disney mascots. The course will also be Halloween themed, with pumpkin and monster decorations lining the run. This is the kind of event you could only ever experience at Disneyland.


There’s also a special event being held from September 8th to October 31st called “Disney Halloween”, where children and adults are all encouraged to dress up as their favourite Disney characters and join in the fun.
