What’s New at Tokyo Disney Resort – June 2019

It’s June, and that means lots of new entertainment, merchandise, food and decorations are heading to Tokyo Disney Resort.

Three events begin this month, with Tanabata Days (Star Festival) and Duffy’s Sunny Fun starting on June 6, then Funtime with Toy Story 4 debuts at both parks June 14, 2019.

June is part of the rainy season in Japan (lasts until mid-July). While it doesn’t rain every day, expect more rain than usual and make sure you’re ready.

The biggest closure is Splash Mountain and other attractions in Critter Country and Westernland in Tokyo Disneyland. Tokyo DisneySea’s 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea is closed for part of June too. See the closures section for exact dates.

Take your trip planning to the next level with our digital travel guide to Tokyo Disney Resort. With thousands of copies sold since 2018, it’s become an essential tool for your planning.

From June 6 – July 7, 2019, Tanabata Days (Star Festival) comes to both parks, with seasonal greetings, decorations, food, and merchandise.  The event is a great opportunity to see Mickey and Friends in traditional Japanese costumes.

From June 6 – August 27, 2019, Tokyo DisneySea hosts Duffy’s Sunny Fun for the first time. There are decorations and new menu items in Cape Cod, but the summer-themed merchandise is definitely the highlight.

Finally, starting June 14 until September 1, 2019, Funtime with Toy Story 4 celebrates the release of the new Toy Story movie with merchandise, food and a Find Forky treasure hunt!

Food and Drink

There are new Tanabata Days, Duffy’s Sunny Fun and Toy Story 4 menus launching in June. The Tanabata Chip and Dale bread at the Disney Ambassador Hotel looks fantastic.


The Tanabata Days, Toy Story 4 and Duffy’s Sunny Fun merchandise is all released this month, and plenty of May’s merchandise will continue too.

New in June

Still Available

Event merchandise at Tokyo Disney Resort is gone once the event finishes (no options to buy elsewhere other than checking Nakano Broadway). See our list of current merchandise for more details and a few handy tips. For other merchandise, it’s not known how long it’s available for.


Crowds are on the lighter side in June due to rainy reason and no public holidays. Rain does keep the crowds away and especially during the evenings (many attractions become walk on some days). Read our full guide to rainy reason at Tokyo Disneyland for more.

Buy your tickets in advance to avoid long lines. Consult the Tokyo Disneyland crowd calendar for the latest predictions. Also, read our guide to know the best and worst times to visit Tokyo Disney Resort.


The average temperature for June is 21°C (70°F). The days are warm and the evenings are a bit cool (light jacket weather). Check our packing list, which covers items to bring with you for the weather. Expect a lot of rainy days (it varies every year).

It’s best to have a poncho (the resort sells them), quick dry shoes, and an umbrella (pick these up at any convenience store) if it rains.

    Hi Chris, Love your website helped me plan my trip to Tokyo Disney Resort from Aus. I am headed too Tokyo Disney Resort on the TDL on the 5th of July and Disney Sea on the 6th of July. Looking at the crowd calendar these seem too be good dates but was just wondering what you thought of them. Also what would your revised fast pass strategy be for TDL considering Monsters Inc is closed. Love your work man, makes planning that much less daunting!
