Keeping with anniversary tradition, the Oriental Land Company has officially unveiled the Tokyo Disney Resort 40th Anniversary in Concert, which will tour across Japan through mid-2023! Since Tokyo DisneySea’s 15th Anniversary “The Year of Wishes” celebration in 2016, it has been customary for the Oriental Land Company to host a touring concert series across Japan for each anniversary celebration at Tokyo Disney Resort, now in its fourth iteration.
Tokyo Disney Resort 40th Anniversary “Dream-Go-Round” in Concert will kick off in May and tour Japan through the summer featuring a full symphony orchestra and incredibly talented singers. The complete setlist has not been revealed yet, but we do know a few songs will be played. Namely “Tokyo Disneyland is Your Land,” “One Man’s Dream,” the score for Soaring: Fantastic Flight, “It’s Very Minnie!,” “Club Mouse Beat,” and two songs from The Happy Ride with Baymax. Based on our experience at the Tokyo DisneySea 20th Anniversary Concert last year, we also expect to hear plenty of attraction theme songs, other beloved seasonal event themes, and every single anniversary theme song from the park’s illustrious 40 year history.
