While Tokyo Disney Resort is not holding a full-scale “Disney Christmas” event this year, they will deck the halls of the two parks this year along with presenting two new sets of greetings, along with returning food and merchandise!
At Tokyo Disneyland, the Mickey & Friends Greeting Parade will receive a holiday overlay themed to Disney Christmas Stories, the holiday parade which ran from 2015-2019 at Tokyo Disneyland. Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Pluto, and Daisy will all appear in their Disney Christmas Stories costumes aboard one of the original parade’s floats to greet Guests every day in place of the full parade.
To celebrate Tokyo DisneySea’s 20th Anniversary, the Mickey & Friends Harbor Greeting will actually rotate through three of the park’s past holiday shows! From November 9th through 23rd, the greeting will feature the costumes and music of It’s Christmas Time!, which ran from 2018-2019 at the park. From November 24th through December 9th, music and costumes from Perfect Christmas, which ran from 2015-2017, will take over. And in a true throwback, the 2010-2011 show Christmas Wishes will take over the greeting from December 10th through 25th.
While the World Bazaar Christmas Tree seems to not be set for a return this year, the garland over World Bazaar, the Santa Mickey floral, and other park-wide holiday decorations are set to bring Tokyo Disneyland in the Christmas spirit.
The same goes for Tokyo DisneySea, which will see its traditional holiday decorations return sans giant Christmas tree in American Waterfront.
A whole new line of Duffy & Friends merchandise, called “Duffy & Friends’ Warm Winter Storytime” will be released this year.
Merchandise at Tokyo DisneySea will be themed around It’s Christmas Time! and the tagline “Jolly Holly Days”.
Meanwhile merchandise at Tokyo Disneyland will take on the look of Disney Christmas Stories.
The traditional line of SnoSnow-themed merchandise introduced in 2016 appears to be taking a break this year in favor of a new line called Li’l Ring Ring, themed to holiday fairies.
The annual return of the tapestry and wreath also continues this year.
