Tokyo Disney Resort 40th Anniversary
Tokyo Disney Resort will celebrate its 40th anniversary in 2023. To commemorate the momentous occasion, a resort-wide anniversary event, “Tokyo Disney Resort 40th ‘Dream-Go-Round’” will take place from April 15, 2023, through March 31, 2024.
At Tokyo Disneyland, the anniversary will kick off with the premier of a new daytime parade, Disney Harmony in Color, which will debut on April 15, 2023. The parade will open with Tinkerbell, followed by many popular Disney characters from Zootopia, Moana, Wreck-It Ralph and Coco. The current parade, “Dreaming Up!” debuted in 2018 and will end its run on April 9, 2023, to make way for the new offering.
The anniversary will also feature other entertainment, special merchandise and menu items that will be announced later. Keep an eye on our main Tokyo Disney Resort 40th Anniversary article for updates as more information is released.
From July 4 – September 6, 2023, Tokyo Disneyland will once again offer the special version “Soaking wet MAX” version of Splash Mountain, which promises to get guests soaking wet to beat the summer heat. Additionally, Toontown will be transformed into the brand new special version “Get Wet’ Toontown,” which will have an area for children to enjoy playing with water.
Over at Tokyo DisneySea, Duffy and Friends will greet guests from a boat on the Mediterranean Harbor.
Disney’s Halloween will return for the 2023 season, with the event taking place from September 15, 2023, to October 31, 2023. Halloween at the resort will feature spooky-themed decor, entertainment, attraction overlays, merchandise and limited-time Halloween food and drink options.
Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea celebrate Disney Christmas from November 8 to December 25, 2023. The Christmas event will feature decorations, food, merchandise, and festive entertainment! Unlike the US parks, there is no separate Christmas party event, and all entertainment is included in your standard park admission.
New Years Events
Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea will celebrate the New Year from January 1 to 8, 2024. The event is unique to Tokyo Disney Resort, and you won’t experience it at any other Disney park. Guests can see Mickey and Friends dressed in colourful kimonos, and Japanese-style New Year’s decorations will adorn the entrances at both Parks.
