New recyclable character plates have arrived at Tokyo Disneyland, including removable film and designs based on various legendary Disney characters and the 40th anniversary of Tokyo Disney Resort.
Recyclable Plates at Tokyo Disneyland
These plates are available at Grandma Sara’s Kitchen in Critter Country, wedged between Splash Mountain and Haunted Mansion. The informational sign reads:
There’s magic in recycling…Plates with tags can be turned into recyclable material by peeling off the film.
The film goes in the trash can after being peeled, but the plate itself can go directly in a recycling bin.
The film features various iconic Disney Characters, including Tinker Bell, Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Daisy, Goofy, and Pluto. “Tokyo Disney Resort,” “Dream-Go-Round,” and “40” are also part of the design, commemorating the 40th anniversary of Tokyo Disneyland and the Tokyo Disney Resort.
When the film peels off, each recyclable plate has a different character depicted at the bottom. We got Donald Duck, with a silhouette of his face in the center, surrounded by little webbed feet.
Here’s how the set-up looks in action, with a meal inside.
Small arrows indicate the little tabs where the film can be removed.
Just like that, it comes off, and the plate gets recycled after the meal is finished.
Tokyo Disney Resort 40th Anniversary ‘Dream-Go-Round’ Celebration
Tokyo Disney Resort opened with Tokyo Disneyland 40 years ago on April 15, 1983. The resort is celebrating this year with special entertainment, merchandise, decorations, and more.
Main Street of World Bazaar at Tokyo Disneyland welcomes guests with multiple layers of colorful “Dream Garlands.” The presence of the “Dream Garland,” which is displayed throughout Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea, emphasizes the connection between each area of the Parks, guests, Cast Members, and Disney characters.
Cinderella Castle is decorated with the commemorative number “40.” After dark, guests can enjoy seeing the banners around the castle glow — as if sprinkled with pixie dust.
Tokyo Disneyland launched a brand-new daytime parade, “Disney Harmony in Color.” Themed to a “harmonious world of colors,” the parade showcases themes of adventure, courage, family bonds, and friendship through various stories from Disney and Pixar films. The finale features a float that takes guests on a journey to a harmonious world of vibrant colors that is filled with dreams. The parade features Mickey and friends, characters from “Zootopia,” characters from “Coco,” and more.
The festive atmosphere of the 40th anniversary at Tokyo Disney Resort adds to the excitement of “Club Mouse Beat,” where Mickey Mouse and his friends give dynamic performances set to hip-hop, Latin, pop, and other musical styles. In the show’s finale, the 40th anniversary theme song plays as Mickey and friends appear in their 40th anniversary outfits.
Tokyo DisneySea presents the special Tokyo Disney Resort 40th anniversary Harbor Greeting, “Let’s Celebrate with Colors,” at Mediterranean Harbor. Mickey and friends appear in colorful outfits while the Tokyo Disney Resort 40th anniversary theme song plays.
In “Sky Full of Colors,” colorful fireworks light up the night sky to the 40th anniversary theme song and a variety of Disney songs, giving guests spectacular, dream-filled moments to enjoy.
