Halloween at DisneySea!

Hello everyone! I have about a weeks worth of Disney photos to share with you, but I’m going to start with the most recent trip we made since it’s the most recent. Duhh ;D Anyway, after avoiding the park over the summer because of the heat, we’ve been enjoying the Halloween festivities at Tokyo Disney Resort. This past weekend was a 3 day weekend though and both parks reached capacity.

We had to park our car in R7 way over by Maihama Eurasia hotel. It was a long walk, but we were able to park for free because the park had reached capacity. How nice! Once we reached DisneySea a very kind cast member came over to tell us that DisneySea would be re-opening entrance at 15:30 instead of the originally announced 17:00! Yay!

After Spring, Halloween is probably my next favorite season at Disney.

The side of the harbor by the entrance is surrounded by a wall! I can’t wait to see what changes they make. Also notice the Mickey mask on the lamp post! I love all the little details.

Heading over to the Waterfront Park to watch Halloween Follies! Can you spot me?

We were able to grab some seats in the shade to watch Halloween Follies!

I’ll post photos from the show next time, but I noticed that the towers are totally different from Easter in New York! Speakers and they sounded awesome! I loved the music from this show!

I was feeling sad that the huge spotlights were gone, but then I turned around and there they were in the back! Since the stage is at the front for Follies and not on each corner like Easter in New York that makes perfect sense.

Goodbye, Mythica

The DisneySea original 5th anniversary show, The Legend of Mythics is ending on September 7th, 2014. Unfortunately I don’t seem to have too many photos of the show, but here are two. My hard disc drive doesn’t seem to want to cooperate with me at the moment, but if it ever decides to actually load my files I’ll try to find more Mythica photos for your and my enjoyment

The Legend of Mythica brought to Disney guests by 講談社 (Koudansha)
Since Mythica is ending Koudansha will now be sponsoring Turtle Talk.

Minnie Mouse! The Spirit of Love!

If you have any Mythica photos please share them with me on Twitter!
Especially Donald! Tweet them to me @StudioLorien

Halloween is Coming Soon!

I was going through my photos yesterday to see what Halloween photos I had taken last year and I thought I would share them with you guys. I had just gotten my Casio vlogging camera and was so impressed with it, but now that I look at the photos they’re not that sharp. I’m excited to take photos with my new DSLR this year! Anyway, here are the “before” shots ;D

I can’t wait to see Clarice and the other girls again this year!

This was one of my favorite floats. This year I’ll be sure to get a good Donald photo!

Halloween Daydream!

I’m going to miss these costumes this year!

I’m also going to miss Mythica! Ending on Septemer 7th D;

I am going to stuff my face this year. I love this buffet!

DisneySea Halloween Merchandise!

Wow, talk about lack of updates.

Summer is almost ending soon and I left you guys hanging. You may know by now, but Duffy’s new friend is an adorable grey cat called Gelatoni! Unfortunately I have not been able to get my hands on his royal cuteness, but I’ll try to snap a few photos next time I’m in the park. Like Duffy and Shellie May, he is DisneySea exclusive here at Tokyo Disney Resort!

It looks like starting this Halloween, OLC will be providing happy guests with Gelatoni costumes!

Speaking of Halloween! There is a DisneySea commercial out for your viewing pleasure! I’m very excited for the new Halloween show. Most merchandise will be going on shelves September 1st, Duffy merchandise will be hitting shops on September 5th, and the Gelatoni Halloween merchandise will go on sale on October 10th. If you want to take a look at the various merchandise check out the DisneySea webpage. I’ve only seen postcards shown on the Duffy page, but hopefully they’ll have some really cool ones for Mickey and his friends too!

This was just a short post to get me back into the blogging habit. Make sure to check back often for more Halloween posts! Goodbye Summer! Next week I’ll be going to say goodbye to The Legend of Mythica as well, as it comes to an end on September 7th. I’m keeping my fingers crossed for nice weather! I can’t wait to try out my new camera!

Duffy’s New Friend

There is a Twitter hashtag going around. #ダッフィーとジェラート (Duffy and Gelato) What is this all about? OLC has created a webpage for a new event/character. The countdown has been going on for a while now, but I finally got a chance to actually go to DisneySea and see what it was all about. I had been seeing photos of the new painting of Duffy and sketches of the new friend popping up on Twitter. The website says that it’ll be 11 more days till the rumors are solved! I can’t wait to see how the painting(s) change and who Duffy’s new friend is going to be!

Hmm, who drew this picture of Duffy?

What kind of animal is Duffy’s new friend going to be?
Since I took this photo the sketch has been updated!

Duffy’s new friend must like to paint!

This picture has been getting updated too.
When it first showed up there was no Duffy sitting in the gondola.

Easter in New York Pictures

I have mentioned this a few hundred times on Facebook and Twitter, but I LOVE EASTER IN NEW YORK. There are many shows at Disney that I love, but this would definitely be in the top 3. Anyway, I have also gotten my husband addicted to this show and we’ve been quite a few times now. Lately we’ve been too busy trying to do the body percussion with the characters that we haven’t been able to take many photos. (MICKEY CAME UP TO ME AND DID THE BODY PERCUSSION WITH ME!) Anyway, here are some photos that we got from one of the times that we went.

I’m sure you all know by now how much I love Donald.
I mean, he’s wearing purple! Who wouldn’t love him?!

I love when Donald does the poses with this band member.

I love, love, love this shot. Me next, Minnie! ME NEXT!

I didn’t have too many good shots of Mickey.
…Probably because I was screaming at him most of the time.

Taxi Cab Pluto!


Another shot that I like. Too bad more of the flag isn’t visible.

Confetti Daisy. So cute!

I just realized I have zero photos of Duffy and Shellie May…Hmmm. I have about three more SD cards full of EiN photos so I shall see what I can find. Let me know which character you like the best! I, of course, love Donald the most :3 I hope we can go again before the spring events end!

Electrical Parade Renewal

Today the news was announced that the Electrical Parade: Dreamlights will be getting renewed next July. A new Rapunzel float will be added to the parade. The article says that the Rapunzel float will have both Rapunzel and Flynn Rider on it. It says the design will have the lantern scene, Rapunzel’s hair, and flowers. The Peter Pan pirate ship float, Blue Fairy Float, Knights of Light, along with 4 others will be renewed and use LED lights. This is the third renewal since 2007 and 2011.

I haven’t watched the Electrical Parade since the countdown on New Year’s Eve, but I am definitely going to need to go back and watch it again before it gets renewed. I’ve always loved the music and lights. I can’t wait to see the new Rapunzel float! Here are some photos from New Year’s Eve. Please don’t mind that they are out of order.

Disney Tanabata Days

To start of this blog post I would like to start by explaining Tanabata, as it may not be commonly known in some countries and if I just jump into the content some people may be very confused.

“Tanabata (七夕 meaning “Evening of the seventh”) is a Japanese star festival, originating from the Chinese Qixi Festival. It celebrates the meeting of the deities Orihime and Hikoboshi (represented by the stars Vega and Altair respectively). According to legend, the Milky Way separates these lovers, and they are allowed to meet only once a year on the seventh day of the seventh lunar month of the lunisolar calendar. The date of Tanabata varies by region of the country, but the first festivities begin on July 7 of the Gregorian calendar.” – Wikipedia

The true definition of Star Crossed Lovers?!

It is a very popular festival and of course, Disney has their own version of the Tanabata Festival. It will be held from June 24th (Tues) ~ July 7th (Mon) It is a very short period, but it is definitely worth checking out. All of the characters have amazing costumes and the merchandise is wonderful as well.

Mickey as Hikoboshi and Minnie as Orihime

Unfortunately I’m not going to be in the country during the time of this event so I will only be able to bring you the information that I have found on the official site. One exciting bit of news it that starting this year they will be having a Tanabata greeting show at DisneySea! It will be held at the harbor three times a day. (10:45~ / 13:00~ / 16:30~) DisneySea will also be setting up a wishing place at the American Waterfront. Fore more information and map images please look at the official website.

I am most upset about missing out on the merchandise. As always the characters are wearing adorable costumes! Donald is so cute! As a Nanoblock lover it is very sad that I will not be in Japan to purchase these adorable figures. Hopefully I’ll be able to snatch them up on auction when I get back. DisneySea will also be providing some delicious looking Tanabata foods.

Along with the same merchandise, Tokyo Disneyland will also have a Tanabata Greeting Parade! This will be held two times a day (11:20~ / 16:15~) along the parade route. I wish I could go see Donald!

Although the merchandise is the same at both parks, the food will be a little different. Hokusai will be offering a Tanabata Zen for 2,880 yen. Everyone who eats this set will receive a special Hokusai wishing card! I’m sure it will be very cute!

Once Upon a Time

Remeber the blog post I made about the Castle Projection Mapping? We finally were able to go see it for ourselves. Unfortunately we were not able to win lottery seats, but it was still gorgeous from far away. The pictures aren’t too clear, but you can get the general idea of how beautiful it was.

The video below is not mine, but if you would like to see the whole show, check it out!

Springtime Surprise 2014

Hello, hello! Today I am back with a post from the Arabian Coast in DisneySea. I’ve only seen this show once and unfortunately I wasn’t in the best position to take good pictures, but since I am now obsessed with Easter in New York, I have a feeling that I may not be going back to see Springtime Surprise again before the season ends. Therefore! I am going to go ahead and post the photos that I have. Hopefully you will get a rough idea of the show.

Mickey and Minnie come to visit the Arabian Coast!

Of course, Duffy and Shellie May come with them.

Happy dancing and singing! Minnie’s dress is so cute.

I am in love with the dancer’s costumes.

A show at the Arabian Coast would not be complete without Genie!

Before. Hmmmm….

After! Tadaaaaa!

I actually have a video clip from Minnie’s magical dress change! How do they do it?!
