Believe! Sea of Dreams
“Believe! Sea of Dreams” transforms Tokyo DisneySea’s Mediterranean Harbor with large boats flanked with high-definition screens gliding dynamically over the water’s surface, bright lasers and searchlights illuminating the night sky and, for the first time, projection mapping on the walls of Tokyo DisneySea Hotel MiraCosta.
The show follows Peter Pan and Wendy as they set sail on a golden pirate ship to visit the “Sea of Dreams” and meet the “wishing stars” that are their Disney friends. The show largely focuses on characters from modern Disney and Pixar films including Moana, Miguel from Coco, Rapunzel from Tangled, and Elsa from Frozen.
