Spring Duffy Merchandise Available Outside Tokyo DisneySea

June 3, 2021

Starting June 4, 2021, you’ll be able to buy the “Spring in Bloom” Duffy merchandise inside Bon Voyage. Why is this news? Duffy merchandise has been exclusively in Tokyo DisneySea or through the official app (with a day ticket to Tokyo DisneySea).

So this is a first seeing Duffy merchandise outside of Tokyo DisneySea.

With that said, the “Spring in Bloom” items are the only ones available outside Tokyo DisneySea. The new summer items are still exclusively inside Tokyo DisneySea.

Baymax Photo Opt No Longer Needs “Entry Request”

April 27, 2021

The Baymax photo opt at Tokyo Disneyland “Happy Fair Lab” no longer needs the “Entry Request” starting today. Prior to today, if you wanted a photo with Baymax you had to do an “Entry Request” through the official Tokyo Disney Resort app. The “Entry Request” is essentially a lottery and you may or may not win, which means there’s a chance you wouldn’t be able to experience the meet and greet.

This is the same system used for the new Beauty and the Beast ride, The Happy Ride with Baymax, Minnie’s Style Studio, Big Band Beat, Mickey’s Magical Music World, and other attractions.
