Tokyo Disneyland Special Event
Christmas Fantasy


Disney Christmas Stories

  • Location: Parade Route
  • Duration: About 45 minutes
  • Performances: 2 Daily (Daytime)
  • Number of Performers: About 110

This parade is themed to seven stories of Christmas that the Disney Characters spend with their dear ones. This year Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse and Pluto will appear in new costumes.

Heading the parade is the Story 1 float with Donald Duck dressed up as Santa Claus. He is joined on the colorfully decorated boat-shaped float by Daisy Duck, his nephews and his uncle Scrooge as they enjoy a Christmas at home. Following in succession and showing how the Disney Characters enjoy Christmas are the Story 2 float with Woody and Buzz Lightyear, the Story 3 with Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs and the Story 4 float with Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse and their close friends. The Story 5 float shows Stitch and his friends, followed by the Story 6 float with Belle and the Beast. The last float shows a world of snow and ice with Anna, Elsa and Olaf from the Disney film Frozen.

The parade stops in three locations for a Christmas party. Bells chime loudly as Christmas music plays and the Disney Characters together with the Guests make the party even livelier. In the finale, it begins to snow as the Guests and the Disney Characters celebrate a heartwarming Christmas together.
