Tokyo Disneyland Special Event Disney Natsu Matsuri July 8 to August 31, 2014

It's time for a Japanese-style summer festival at Tokyo Disneyland!

This year, the theme of the new show "Garyo Gunbu" is "gunbu" which means dancing with everyone participating. Two dance teams, Miyabi Kenran and Ryobu Shippu, make their appearance on separate floats and put on hot and lively dances around the Castle Forecourt. Guests can take part in cheering for their favorite team as water sprays out from the floats. The show heats up as everyone joins in the lively Disney-style dancing. Also during this event, children can participate in "Ondo-Ko-Don!" featuring a Mickey-themed original dance that they can do with the Disney characters for a great way to enjoy the summer festivities.
