Again this year, Guests can enjoy this entertainment program inspired by the colorful, Japanese style of “natsu matsuri” or summer festivals. “Sansui” refers to “sparkling sun and water” and in the program tons of water will spray out over the forecourt in front of Cinderella Castle and along the parade route around the Plaza for a fun and refreshing time.
In this season of summer festivals, Guests gather as five floats, large and small, make their way to the Castle Forecourt and Plaza. In addition to the popular Disney songs, the theme song for the Tokyo Disney Resort 35th “Happiest Celebration!” is heard in a summer festival arrangement with Japanese drums, flutes and other instruments. The Disney Friends, dressed in colorful Japanese fashion, appear on the floats and spray the Guests with water. Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse and their friends take the lead, clapping rhythmically and calling out to the Guests in a lively way. The special ambience of a Disney-style Japanese summer festival reaches the heights as Guests and the Disney Friends join together in the fun.
Note: Water will spray from the five large and small floats primarily in front of Cinderella Castle and along the parade route around the Plaza.
Entertainment programs are subject to change or cancellation due to weather conditions. Also, the number of scheduled performances may change.

Summer Beat” will include plush badges, towels and other items perfect for souvenirs and gifts.
