Out of Shadowland

Tokyo DisneySea New Musical Show


Premiering on July 9

Presented at the Hangar Stage in Lost River Delta, "Out of Shadowland" is an original tale about a shy, soft-spoken girl who must learn to overcome her doubts and fears through the power of her imagination, and the courage she discovers in her heart. Created expressly for the Hangar Stage, this new musical show with colorful visuals, dynamic scenes and powerful live performances offers Guests a unique experience.

The story of "Out of Shadowland" follows a young woman named Mei, who gets separated from her group on a jungle safari tour and must spend the night lost and alone in the scary wilderness. To take her mind off her fears, Mei plays with shadow puppets in her tent and is magically pulled into the shadow world she created.

The "hot" but "cool" water program, "Minnie's Tropical Splash," is back again this year to fill Mediterranean Harbor with tons of spraying water. This year, Jose Carioca and Panchito have come to add even more excitement to the event. The "carnival queens" Minnie Mouse, Daisy Duck and Clarice in gorgeous new costumes appear in Mediterranean Harbor on a boat with colorful motifs of luscious, tropical fruit. From the boat, Minnie opens the carnival in celebration of the rich harvest of fruit and the hot Latin music begins to throb as the carnival fun begins. To increase the excitement, Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, and their pals start to spray water from the boats and the shore. The Guests get involved and the carnival heats up even more. For the finale, Jose Carioca and Panchito appear and do the new "banana dance" as the tropical carnival reaches the heights of fun.
