Written by MATCHA
Tokyo Disneyland is holding a Christmas and holiday-related event in 2019! There’s nothing but exciting events to enjoy, like parades, special holiday food, photo spots, and sweet souvenirs. Find information on how to spend a festive and unforgettable day.
Disney Christmas – Celebrate Winter with a Limited-Time Event
Tokyo Disneyland is holding Disney Christmas, a Christmas event, from November 8 (Friday) to December 25, 2019 (Wednesday). Only during this period will you be able to enjoy festive parades, decorations, and merchandise for the event.
We headed to the park, now enveloped in the brilliant atmosphere of the holidays, straight away!
Disney Christmas Stories – A Must-See Parade
For the Christmas parade, the Disney Friends ride on seven floats as they express the fun of Christmas spent together with loved ones.
Donald Duck and friends put on a show at the front of the parade. They made it feel as if you’re at a holiday party as they greeted guests.
Appearing on top of presents of all sizes are the main characters of the “Toy Story” movie series. It almost looks like they’re transporting the presents as they ride the float.
Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse appear together with Chip and Dale! Seeing these characters spending time together will bring a smile to your face.
During a section of the parade, guests are encouraged to wave and clap their hands to the beat of Mickey Mouse’s shouts. The energy of the crowd will warm your heart and your body. Participating is a lot of fun, so be sure to try it!
Stitch and his friends will appear together with Anna, Elsa, and Olaf from “Frozen” as Christmas songs play. Watching the parade with family and friends is sure to be special.
The parade is 40 minutes long and is held twice a day.
Take the Perfect Photo with Christmas Decorations
The Christmas decorations throughout the park are ideal as photo spots. The area by Cinderella’s Castle, especially, is full of cute decorations.
At the plaza in front of Cinderella’s Castle is a decorative scene inspired by a street corner at Christmastime. Mickey Mouse and his friends carry presents as they walk with a smile.
Of course, this spot is great for a picture with your friends. It would also be fun to exchange presents in front of the decorations!
On the opposite plaza, Pluto cheerfully pulls a sleigh. On the sleigh are piles of presents, and Chip and Dale wear Santa Claus hats while riding in the front.
The popular Christmas tree has returned to World Bazaar after a two year absence. It is gorgeous during the afternoon, but the tree glittering in the night is still something special.
