Spooky season has officially arrived at Tokyo DisneySea, as Halloween theming and decorations now adorn several of the park’s ports. A new character greeting has also debuted in Mediterranean Harbor to help usher in the Halloween season; we were able to check out the new greeting and the seasonal decor around the park on a recent trip.
Tokyo DisneySea Halloween Harbor Show
The “Let’s Celebrate with Colors” character greeting usually runs at Mediterranean Harbor; it debuted in April l in celebration of Tokyo Disney Resort’s 40th anniversary. This new festive greeting uses the same characters as “Let’s Celebrate with Colors,” as Disney icons like Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, and Goofy appear from a boat on the water.
Mickey appears alongside his friends — including Duffy and ShellieMay — in Halloween attire. He wears a festive orange and purple suit, a color palette echoed by Minnie, Goofy, Pluto, Duffy, and Daisy. Donald wears a green and yellow suit with a Jack-o’-lantern hat, while ShellieMay wears a seasonal costume complemented with a sunflower.
They greet guests from the water as the boat sails around Mediterranean Harbor, the vessel adorned with Halloween decorations like a black spider-web, a Jack-o’-lantern, and a spooky sign that reads “trick or treat.”
The characters comically interact with each other, wave at guests, and dance throughout the roughly 10-minute show.

Tokyo DisneySea Halloween Decorations
Tokyo DisneySea has received a festive facelift to coincide with the new Halloween greetings. The entrance to Passaggio MiraCosta has received a Halloween makeover; the “40” placed in the center of the entryway has received a new festive color scheme and is now flanked by Jack-o’-lanterns on either side.
Frightening Jack-o’-lantern images have also been placed above the neighboring arches, with Halloween-themed “Dream-Go-Round” banners greeting guests once they pass by. “Dream-Go-Round” is the official name of Tokyo Disney Resort’s 40th anniversary celebration.
Disney characters appear in Jack-o’-lantern form underneath the structure; Mickey, Minnie, Donald, and Goofy are present.
Numerous Halloween-centric character posters appear throughout the Mediterranean Harbor section of the park.
This poster features Pluto eagerly looking at a candy version of Mount Prometheus, one of Tokyo DisneySea’s icons.
Halloween decorations even stretch to the American Waterfront section of the park; this port-of-call, specifically its New York section, contains Tokyo DisneySea’s version of Tower of Terror.
Cast members dressed as vintage New York City reporters (with a bit of added festive flare) walk around and interact with guests.
These are just some of the Halloween decorations that recently debuted at Tokyo Disney Resort; check out the new festive decorations just added to Tokyo Disneyland here.
Tokyo DisneySea opened in September 2001. It contains seven “ports-of-call” (themed lands) and is expected to open its eighth early next year; Fantasy Springs will include lands, attractions, and restaurants inspired by “Frozen,” “Tangled,” and “Peter Pan” and also host the Fantasy Springs Hotel.
