Our MATCHA writer visited the event and covered the park’s adorable transformation in this article!
A Must-See Show! It’s Very Minnie!
When you visit Tokyo Disneyland this season, you must watch the show “It’s Very Minnie!” at the amphitheater Showbase. With Minnie Mouse as the star, the performance showcases Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, Daisy Duck, and other Disney friends dancing to six scenes.
The spectacle has a variety of music enjoyable throughout the performance. Additionally, it actually contains several entertainment forms that were formerly shown in the park. This will bring nostalgia to longtime fans.
The opening features Minnie Mouse wearing her classic red and white polka dot dress. It is an exciting, adorable scene.
Next up is a Latin-style dance. Minnie and Mickey appear in their costumes from “Minnie Oh! Minnie,” which was performed in 2018.
The show becomes slightly romantic, as the girls—Minnie with Daisy Duck and Clarice at her side—don tiaras while wearing outfits from “Minnie’s Princess Greeting." The dresses and tiarasare from 2007!
The show then turns into a club, moving to the climax with the pulsing medley. Mickey Mouse performs sharp dance moves to music that was popular in the 1990s. You'll be dancing in your seat!
After performing past songs and parade tunes, the Disney characters have a grand finale, with everyone dressed polka dots like at the beginning of the show. This exhillirating spectacle is 25 minutes long. You’ll feel like you're in a dream Disney world the entire time!
Reminscent of Past Parades! The Very Minnie Remix
Shows aren’t the only performance perfect for fans. The “Very Minnie Remix” parade held twice a day adds in aspects from past parades into the performance. The dance moves and music change depending on the location and day, so park-goers can have fun watching the show no matter every time,
Be sure to check out Minnie’s outfit with an adorable dot pattern. The dots are all different sizes! Mickey’s outfit also has the iconic polka dots, giving him a pop-art-style look.
