Tokyo Disney Resort’s 40th Anniversary Special Event

Enjoy the colorful and festive atmosphere of Tokyo Disney Resort for its 40th Anniversary!

Venue: Tokyo Disneyland & DisneySea When: Apr 15th - Mar 31st 2024

From April 15, 2023 to March 31, 2024, Tokyo Disney Resort will celebrate its 40th anniversary with the special event "Dream-Go-Round!”

Although the world is in the midst of celebrating The Walt Disney Company’s 100th anniversary, this year is a special one for Tokyo Disney Resort as well as it marks 40 years since the opening of Tokyo Disneyland—the first Disney park outside the United States!

The theme for this memorable 40th anniversary is Dream-Go-Round!

Don't miss this limited-time, dream-filled experience as Guests, Cast Members, and Disney's friends unite and celebrate their colorful dreams together!

Tokyo Disneyland

To celebrate its 40th anniversary, Tokyo Disneyland has decorated the park with bright "Dream Garlands," key items for this special event. Cinderella’s Castle, which has been welcoming guests as the symbol of the park for the past 40 years, is also proudly displaying the commemorative number “40.”

A new daytime parade, "Disney Harmony in Colors," runs once a day along the parade route, acting as symbolic entertainment of the 40th anniversary celebration. The theme of the parade is "harmonious world of colors," in which the Disney and Pixar friends present new adventures, courage, friendship, and family bonds through a variety of stories. Enjoy colorful floats, characters who are fulfilling their dreams, and uplifting music! (You can only access some viewing areas with a Disney Premium Pass).

Tinker Bell starts the parade with dancers in colorful costumes!

Nick and Judy from Zootopia in their police officer costumes!

Clawhauser making his first appearance in the world!

The princesses are full of courage! Watch Rapunzel fly with her long hair, and admire a float that embodies the Colors of the Wind!

The characters that ride in the vehicles and tell the stories seem to come straight out of the movies!

The finale float is Mickey and Pals!

The colorful float is reminiscent of flower petals, and Mickey Mouse and his friends appear in costumes as colorful as the seven colors of the rainbow!

In addition to the new parade, the park’s regular shows also offer special 40th anniversary editions! The show, "Club Mouse Beat," which runs four to five times a day at the Tomorrowland show base, features Mickey and friends giving a wonderful performance with upbeat music. For the finale, Mickey and his pals dress up in 40th anniversary costumes and entertain the crowd with a festive performance accompanied by the anniversary theme song! Entry Request (lottery for entertainment or attractions access) is required for show admission. Some exceptions apply.

The Tokyo Disneyland Band, which gives live performances of Disney music, will also contribute to the 40th anniversary event. The Band will perform at the World Bazaar, the entrance, and around the Plaza Terrace on an unscheduled basis. So if you happen to run into them, be sure to enjoy the wonderful music!
