Enjoy the World of Pirates at This Summer DisneySea Event
Disney Pirates Summer, an event inspired by the world of the “Pirates of the Caribbean” film series, has commenced at Tokyo DisneySea! This limited-time event runs from July 9 (Tuesday) to September 1, 2019 (Sunday).
Yo ho, yo ho!
When you visit Tokyo DisneySea, you’ll hear voices of pirates all around the park. This article introduce what to expect at this event so you can enjoy the world of pirates to your heart’s content!
Don’t Be Afraid! Challenge Yourself at the Pirates Summer Battle “Get Wet!”
The Pirates Summer Battle “Get Wet!” is a special interactive performance held three times daily. It is approximately 25 minutes in length.
When you see pirates prowling one after another around the park’s Porto Paradiso Side area, the show has begun.
On board the legendary ship docked at the Mediterranean Harbor at Tokyo DisneySea’s entrance, is the character Captain Barbossa. Pirate training is conducted as guests get sprayed with water.
Just as the pirates move in unison with the rhythmical music and water sprays, Barbossa’s archenemy Captain Jack Sparrow makes his appearance! The scene changes suddenly from a party to a fierce battle surrounding the legendary ship. Tons of water will be sprayed on the guests each time the two are in battle.
Be sure to prepare rain gear or extra clothing for after the event; once the show ends, you will be completely soaked. Why?
Pirates wander around by the audience, spraying water at them during the performance! Be prepared to get wet and feel like you've boarded a pirate ship being tossed about by the sea!
Adorn Yourself in and Become a Pirate!
Of course, there is plenty of limited-time event merchandise. If you wear the Pirates Ear Hat (2,000 yen with tax), a T-shirt (2,600 yen with tax) featuring Disney characters, and a wristband (900 yen plus tax) around your arm, you’ll certainly be able to immerse yourself into your pirate role!
Plush Stuffed Animal Keychains: Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck are 1,700 yen with tax each; Chip and Dale are a set for 2,800 yen with tax.
Plush stuffed animal keychains, a staple merchandise, have also been released in limited-edition event costumes. It would be cute to add them onto your bag or even on your T-shirt. Other merchandise that would make great souvenirs, like a stainless barrel-shaped mug (pictured bottom right for 2,200 yen with tax), are also for sale.
A Taste of Summer with Charming Food and Beverages
There are many limited-time dishes and merchandise available at restaurants and shops inside the park. At Cafe Portofino, visitors can enjoy spaghetti with tomato sauce topped with fish fritters. The olives in the tomato sauce enhances the flavor of the dish.
The set comes with a potato and roast beef salad, a fruit-filled dessert, and a soft drink for 1,880 yen with tax.
How about a sparkling cocktail (680 yen with tax) with large mango chunks on a hot day? It has a moderately sweet, refreshing flavor.
Coffee Roll Cake with Souvenir Plate: 800 yen with tax; Mango Jelly and Orange Mousse with Souvenir Cup: 800 yen with tax
The sweets come with a limited-time souvenir item. The Coffee Roll Cake pictured to the left has a pleasantly bitter flavor from the coffee and isn’t overly sweet. The Mango Jelly and Orange Mousse is topped with cream and allows you to savor three stages of sweetness in one bite.
