CONFIRMED: “Mickey’s Magical Music World”, “Big Band Beat” Stage Shows Officially Opening April 1st at Tokyo Disney Resort

In the past two days, Tokyo Disney Resort has quietly performed Big Band Beat at Tokyo DisneySea, and as well soft opened Mickey’s Magical Music World at Tokyo Disneyland, both as “open rehearsals”. Now, the shows are officially resuming performances beginning April 1st, 2021! This is in line with the news that briefly appeared on the Tokyo Disney Resort website last week, which stated that these two shows would return.

Big Band Beat: A Special Treat


Big Band Beat will resume in an altered form, in accordance with health and safety protocols at Tokyo Disney Resort. As a result, the show has temporarily been retitled Big Band Beat: A Special Treat. The Oriental Land Company did not release further details regarding changes made to the show.

Meanwhile, the Oriental Land Company did announce that Mickey’s Magical Music World, the show set to play the brand-new Fantasyland Forest Theatre at Tokyo Disneyland, will also make its debut on April 1st. Unlike Big Band Beat, the Oriental Land Company did not mention any changes made to the show’s intended vision. Japan Airlines will sponsor the theatre, moving its sponsorship from Mickey’s PhilharMagic, which JAL has sponsored since Star Jets closed in 2017.

The show’s plot, revealed in December 2019, is as follows:

One day, Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck and Goofy find a giant music box deep in the forest. They turn the music box’s large golden key and doors suddenly open. Accompanied by the songs associated with them, various Disney Characters appear including Snow White, Pinocchio, Woody and his friends from the Disney and Pixar Toy Story film series, and more. Mickey and his Pals are delighted with the surprising development and are excited to hear the next song. But when the last door opens, no one appears and no music is heard. Worried, Mickey and his Pals set off on a journey to find the missing song. Along the way they encounter characters from many Disney films. Lumiere from Beauty and the Beast welcomes them with a colorful banquet. King Louie and others from The Jungle Book together with Timon from The Lion King put on a powerful jungle-style performance. In a lovely world of starry skies and mirrors, the Disney Princesses dance a graceful waltz. And then Ursula from The Little Mermaid and Captain Hook from Peter Pan appear in a thrilling scene. Will the journey of Mickey and his Pals lead them to the lost song?

Plans for resuming performances of My Friend Duffy, Song of Mirage, Let’s Party Gras!, or the two Tokyo Disneyland parades have yet to be announced.
