“Disney’s Easter” at Tokyo DisneySea

Easter at Tokyo Disney Resort April 4 to June 2

URAYASU, CHIBA—Tokyo Disney Resort® will present “Disney’s Easter,” a special event to be held from April 4 through June 2, 2019 at both Tokyo DisneySea® Park and Tokyo Disneyland® Park. For the first time in two years, each Park will offer its own whimsical and fun springtime event. In addition, Guests will be able to enjoy the Easter special event at the Disney hotels and the Disney Resort Line.

“Disney’s Easter” at Tokyo DisneySea this year will have a new theme and feature a new type of character called “usapiyo*”. The story behind the “usapiyo” characters is that they appeared when Mickey Mouse and his friends were getting ready for Easter. Minnie Mouse and Daisy Duck found a picture of a chick on some eggs and thought it would be cute to draw some bunny ears on them. To their surprise, little chicks wearing bunny ears hatched from those eggs. And that’s “’ ” how the cute, innocent little “usapiyos” came to be, adding unique, whimsical fun to the event.

A new show, “Tip-Top Easter,” will be presented on the waters of Mediterranean Harbor. Making appearances in this colorful and exciting Easter funfair will be the “usapiyos” as well as Mickey Mouse and his Disney Friends. Around Mediterranean Harbor and American Waterfront, Guests will find lots of “usapiyo” decorations and photo locations that are full of fun and whimsy.

“Disney’s Easter” at Tokyo Disneyland

At Tokyo Disneyland, the bunny-eared, mischief-making egg characters, “usatama**,” will be back again after two years for the special event, “Disney’s Easter.” The Disney Friends were busy making Easter eggs in preparation for Easter when the “usatama” unexpectedly escaped into the Park creating pandemonium! Along the parade route the Disney Friends dressed as “usatama chasers” try to catch the runaway “usatama” in the fun and zany parade, “Usatama on the Run!” Around the Park, Guests will also find the “usatama” in decorations that show the runaways having a good time in Tokyo Disneyland. In Toontown, a photo location of the Easter Egg Maker makes a wacky place to take a keepsake photo.

*“Usapiyo” is coined from the Japanese words usagi (rabbit) and piyo (the sound a chick makes).
**“Usatama” is coined from the Japanese words usagi (rabbit) and tama (egg).
