Tokyo Disneyland officially kicks off its 35th anniversary "Happiest Celebration" this Sunday, but fans are getting an early look at the new parade that will headline the nearly-year-long event.
Dreaming Up! replaces Happiness is Here and features 13 new floats, as well as the first appearance of Big Hero 6's Baymax in a Tokyo Disney production.
Tokyo Disneyland opened as Disney's first theme park outside the United States on April 15, 1983. The park is in the middle of an expansion project that will bring new Beauty and the Beast and Big Hero 6-themed attractions to Fantasyland and Tomorrowland, as well as a new installation of Soarin' to sister park Tokyo DisneySea. But for fans who can't wait until 2020 for those new attractions to debut, the resort is offering the return of It's a Small World (now with the Disneyland-style installation of Disney characters) this Sunday for the 35th.
Tokyo Disneyland also will introduce a new fireworks show on July 10. Celebrate! Tokyo Disneyland will include projection mapping, lasers, and water cannons for a production "on a grander scale than ever before experienced in the Park," according to the park's press release.
The 35th anniversary Happiest Celebration continues through March 25, 2019, though the new parade is expected to run beyond that.Tweet
