Tokyo DisneySea is well-known for its superb shows and entertainment. Some, including Big Band Beat and Song of Mirage, are among Disney’s finest stage performances ever! Unfortunately, it looks like due to routine maintenance and other factors, we will be without one of the more popular shows here, “Hello, New York!”, through November 7th.

DisneySea "Hello, New York!"

“Hello, New York!” premiered last summer as part of the second phase of Tokyo Disney Resort’s 35th anniversary “Happiest Celebration”. It’s a fun show about the Disney Friends taking a vacation to New York City and exploring everything it has to offer, from Broadway to Central Park!

But if we look on the schedule, there’s nothing, and there won’t be for a while. I’m very disappointed, honestly. I like this show, and the music is fairly catchy.

Although I have to wonder what purpose these planters serve since the rest of the viewing area is pretty much blatantly open to the public.

The stage is currently covered with tarps. Maybe a protection of some sort?

The mechanism that holds the “Have a Wonderful Day” banner (which replaced the 35th Anniversary logo seen at the top of the article) has already been removed for this refurbishment.

It’s a shame to see a space like this empty. I have a feeling that rather than reworking the show, it’s only gone right now to accommodate the ongoing S.S. Columbia refurbishment. I can only hope they don’t re-record the dialogue for MIckey with the new Japanese voice. Spoiler alert: He’s not very popular with local Guests, or myself for that matter.

Are you disappointed about this loss? Will you be visiting during this refurbishment and miss seeing “Hello, New York!”? Let us know below or on Twitter!

I went to Tokyo DisneySea this past March and got to Hello, New York! 5 minutes before showtime. The seating was full, but when they heard that I live in New York, they rushed me in and had a row of people move closer to squeeze me in. Arigato Gozimas (thanks so much) to the wonderful staff and their enjoyable show.


I hate, as a New Yorker, to admit how much I loved this show. I wonder if part of the downtime is to take out BRAND NEW DAY (the 35th Anniversary Song) from the soundtrack?
