Halloween 2010 Underway at TDR

nempaA day after storms washed out most of the outdoor shows, it was a cool day that greeted guests in both parks as Disney's Halloween officially began! There were average crowds and all shows went off without a hitch ("Toontown Halloween Costume Party" pictured right. Courtesy of Fuji Sankei News.). The resort is expecting big crowds for the first weekend beginning tomorrow. Our friends at Deep Disney have some of the first videos. Check them out below!

Rain Cancels "Over the Waves" Sayonara

nempaToday was supposed to be the day to see the preview of the new Halloween parade at Tokyo Disneyland, "Disney Halloween Street: Welcome to Spookyville" and the sayonara performances for Tokyo DisneySea's Over the Waves." However, Mother Nature would have none of it as Tropical Cyclone No. 9 (Maluh) hit the Kanto area where TDR is located.

Heavy rains throughout the day cancelled all the outdoor shows and parades in both parks. For Over the Waves (Watch the video below!), today would have been its final shows at Dockside Stage. The show began in July 2006 as part of the park's 5th Anniversary celebrations. There has been no permanent show replacement announced. The stage will be the site of seasonal programming over the next few months.

Our good friends at the Japanese site DeepDisney have added photos taken at the park during today's storm. DeepDisney updates their site daily and features all aspects of the parks in their archives. Enjoy!

nempaDisney's Halloween 2010 officially begins on Thursday, September 9th in both parks. However, guests can experience the new season with park decorations and event merchandise already available. Also, a special version of Super Duper Jumpin' Time has been having a special Halloween version for a few days now. Word is that there will be a couple of sneak previews for "Disney Halloween Street: Welcome to Spookyville", the Halloween parade at Tokyo Disneyland tomorrow!

A very good friend of ours has posted plenty of great pics taken the past few days in both parks. Please visit TokyoDisneySweets, an English-language blog with lots of photos from TDR and around Tokyo. She updates daily and visits the parks quite often. Enjoy!
