Tokyo Disneyland Park is turning 35 next year, and Disney is celebrating with the Tokyo Disney Resort 35th ‘Happiest Celebration!’, which will span from April 15, 2018 through March 25, 2019.
Disneyland Park will kick things off with the premier of “Dreaming Up!,” a brand new daytime parade that will feature floats decorated to Fantasia, Peter Pan, Beauty and the Beast, Big Hero 6, and more (“Happiness is Here,” the current daytime parade, will end on April 9, 2018).
After an extensive refurbishment, “it’s a small world” will be re-opening and feature over 40 new dolls, all from classic Disney movies. Not only that, but the music will be changed up as well. In addition to the iconic song “it’s a small world” the theme will be remixed to include music to accompany the various films that the new dolls represent. New dolls include characters from Frozen, Mulan, Cinderella, Tangled, Alice in Wonderland, Peter Pan, Aladdin, and The Lion King.
Later in the summer, “Celebrate! Tokyo Disneyland” will premiere as the park’s new nighttime spectacular at Cinderella Castle. The show will utilize newer effects like fountains of water and lights filling the sky. Mickey Mouse will personally come on stage to kick the show off, casting a magic spell on Cinderella Castle to create a world of imagination.
Both Disneyland Park and Tokyo Disney Sea will offer unique decorations and activities to celebrate Easter, Halloween, and Christmas during this year-long celebration. And of course unique merchandise and food items will be sold exclusively for the anniversary. Additionally, Disney will be opening a special anniversary store in Disneyland for a limited time.
Additional events, shows, and seasonal celebrations will take place over the year for the Tokyo Disney Resort 35th ‘Happiest Celebration!’.
