Summer has arrived at Tokyo Disney Resort and that means some splashing summer fun for the whole family under the Tokyo sun.
Pirates are taking over Tokyo DisneySea and at the center are the rivalry between Captain Jack Sparrow and Captain Barbossa, from the long-running Pirates of the Caribbean franchise. Guests are caught in the midst of their battle in the “Pirates Summer ‘Get Wet’” harbor show at the Mediterranean Harbor, and as the name suggests, they must be prepared to get wet. The pirates will show no mercy for those close to the stage, splashing and spraying water with fire hoses and buckets, so make sure you’re geared up and protect anything you don’t want soaked (rain covers for your camera is a must).
It may sound intimidating at first, but in the melting hot and humid summer in Japan, it’s certainly revitalizing.
Two new entertainment programs make its debut at Tokyo Disneyland’s Castle Forecourt stage this summer. In the daytime there is “Judy and Nick’s Jumpin’ Splash” where Judy Hopps and Nick Wilde from the Zootopia come out to “protect” the guests from the heat by soaking them with water. Again, there is no mercy here if you’re right up in front so make sure you’re prepared to get wet.
In the evening comes the highlight of the summer event, “Oh! Summer Banzai!” featuring Donald Duck. Set in a colorful and exotic jungle, the show exhibits projection mapping on the castle and a spectacular use of flames and water along with the performances of Donald and his friends. The more guests are closer to the stage, the more they will get wet, if not soaked. Seeing Donald take the center stage is refreshing and the tropical-themed program seems like a perfect fit to blow away the summer heat.
Tokyo Disney Resort’s summertime program runs until September 1st.
