Tokyo Disneyland 35th Anniversary – Arrival & Anniversary Moment

To mark the 35th Anniversary there was a special opening ceremony scheduled for 8:45am (park opening was at 8am).  This was not listed anywhere that I saw.  I decided to let the initial rush of guest get to the park then I would try to make it in behind them and see the ceremony.  This was the first event I can say I was really disappointed with how Tokyo Disneyland handled it.   World Bazaar was jammed and a made house. There were a lot of cast members trying to manage the crowd but it was not working.  Secondly once the event started, you could not see it since the stage area was not elevated and most of World Bazaar (including my area) could not hear anything except some distance music at times.  It was extremely frustrating to be there for it but not really be there since you could not see or hear anything at all.

Tokyo Disneyland entrance from the Resort Line station did not look bad this morning.
Security was a little backed up but moving quickly. Took about 5 minutes to make it through.
No delays at the park entrance. This was about 20 min after park opening.

There were a lot of Cast Members near the entrance on in World Bazaar greeting guests this morning.
As you approached World Bazaar you found the crowds. It was packed!
Looking up the street as I tried to inch my way forward and figure out a viewing location.
In the center of the street is an icon for the 35th anniversary featuring all the Mickey’s from previous anniversaries
A quick closer look – more pics in a later post
Think there is a stage for the event up there somewhere…
That writing on the left is the top of the stage area for the event. The crowd was thick so this is where I stopped to wait. This was about 10 minutes prior to show time.


Looking backwards
After it ended I made my way toward Adventureland to get away from the crowd.
