JTCEnt.com's TDR Nempa Blog

Hello everyone! Welcome to my Nempa Blog. Nempa is a phrase taken from the Japanese for "Annual Passport." Here you'll find my comments and views on various things from Tokyo Disney Resort. I hope you enjoy it and visit often. Thank you!

The Voice from Above

One of the things I love when visiting TDR is hearing the public announcements before a parade or show begins. Call me crazy, but it is part of the park atmosphere that gets me excited. I can't explain very well. The "Voice of Disneyland" will always be Jack Wagner, but for the last few years, I've always considered this other voice the "Voice of Tokyo Disneyland."

Here in Tokyo, they are done in Japanese and English. The "oshirase" in Japanese are done by a former TDL Ambassador from 1986, Hiroko Igarashi. However, in English, they are done by American Kevin Common (photo courtesy of InterFM). He works as a DJ at a popular English-language radio station here, InterFM. He also has regular podcasts via the station's official site. So, for those of you that have visited TDL and want a nostalgic reminder, download and enjoy!
