The magical springtime festival of Disney’s Easter will be returning to Tokyo Disney Resort very soon! Running from Thursday, April 4th to Sunday, June 2, for the first time in two years the festivities will span the both Tokyo Disneyland and DisneySea parks, and will even reach the hotels and the Resort Line.
Possibly the most egg-citing news to reach us – the Usatama are back! The mischievous little egg characters are have returned from their two-year break, causing havoc throughout Tokyo Disneyland park and prompting Mickey and friends to chase after them in the popular Usatama on the Run! parade. This will happen twice daily and will feature seven floats, one of which a huge “Usatama Detection Machine” which looks like it functions in a similar way to a vacuum cleaner, so watch out for that!
Also featuring these cracking characters will be an Usatama hunt throughout the park, where guests will be able to pick up a guide for free and get searching!
Leading the celebrations over at DisneySea are the new characters Usapiyo! These cute little chicks with bunny ears will be seen throughout the resort. Usapiyo will also feature in the all-new show ‘Tip-Top Easter’, which will be performed three times daily at Mediterranean Harbor in DisneySea, with five boats and approximately 130 performers. Is it just us, or do these look like hatched Usatama?
The eggstravangza continues into your dining too – with special egg-themed dishes to be hunted for on the menu from March 26 (ahead of the festival). In Tokyo Disneyland, Huey, Dewey & Louie’s Good Time Café will serve scrambled eggs and ham cutlets on egg-shaped bread rolls, and in Grandma Sara’s Kitchen guests might find their rice shaped like broken eggs.
At DisneySea, you will find ham and avocado sandwiches in buns which resemble fried eggs in New York Deli, and at Café Portofino you can try a pasta carbonara dish with a hidden egg inside. For dessert, there is a coconut pudding designed to look like a broken egg.
Colorful decorations will be visible all throughout the resort, featuring all our favourite characters along with the newer Easter visitors!
It wouldn’t be a festival without some brilliant merch to go with it, sold in advance from April 1. Of course, we can expect to spot some beautiful headgear…
And souvenirs of our favourite Easter characters!
Over at the Resort Line gateway, decorations will be on show to welcome guests and limited-time ticket designs will also feature the colorful theming of the celebration.
Will you be hunting down the eggs and chasing Usatama this Easter at Tokyo Disney Resort? Let us know!
