ⓘ Celebrate! Tokyo Disneyland

Celebrate! Tokyo Disneyland was a nighttime spectacular at Tokyo Disneyland that premiered on July 10, 2018, alongside Dreaming Up!, Lets Party Gras, and Hello, New York! as part of the 35th anniversary of Tokyo Disney Resort. The show was produced by Walt Disney Creative Entertainment, under Lead Creative Executive of Parades and Spectaculars Steve Davison.

Celebrate! Tokyo Disneyland incorporates fireworks, water cannons, flamethrowers, projection mapping, lasers, searchlights, tree lighting, and many more to depict scenes from some of Tokyo Disneylands most famous rides and Disney films. It was created as a homage to Tokyo Disneyland and Disney parks worldwide, its lands, and its attractions, past and present. It won the Most Creative Multimedia Spectacular award from the IAAPA association at the 2018 Brass Ring awards.


1. Technical details

Celebrate! Tokyo Disneyland features one of largest multimedia displays of any Disney theme park around the world, much similar in scale to Disneyland Forever. They utilize approximately 88 high-powered searchlights including moat lights and turrets lights that illuminate sky across the park, two projectors on the castle and its turrets, 87 water fountains, three lasers both in the castle and its turrets, six small flamethrowers, and new firework launch site, as well as synchronized popcorn lighting around the hub and new colorful tree lighting across the Central Plaza and Cinderella Castle that lighted up during the show. They also combined all elements that Disney has used in nighttime spectaculars at its other parks around the world.


2. Show summary

Much like Disneyland’s fireworks spectacular Remember. Dreams Come True and World of Color: Celebrate! at Disney California Adventure, Celebrate! takes park guests on" an unforgettable journey around the Kingdom of Dreams and Magic”. With Mickey Mouse as conductor, guests will find themselves in an" amazing musical fantasy” as the park’s lands come to life.

Soundtrack elements from Remember. and other Disney Parks nighttime spectaculars were rescored for the show. It also features a theme song rewritten from" Let the Memories Begin” - the theme song from former nighttime show The Magic, the Memories and You the original song was composed by Christopher McGovern – and was performed by former Disneyland cast member, stage actress and singer Eden Espinosa.

Same as previous projection show Once Upon a Time, to avoid overcrowding problems, the show features lottery ticket systems for special viewing areas.
