Join Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse as they celebrate the Tanabata Festival from June 7 to July 7, 2018. The Tanabata or Star Festival tells the story of Orihime (a weaver deity) and Hikoboshi (cow herder deity) who fell in love with each other. However, circumstances separated them and were only given the chance to be together every 7th day of July.
Disney’s two main characters will play these two star-crossed lovers during the festival. Catch them in a parade at Disneyland and at DisneySea’s Mediterranean Harbor.
Celebrating Tanabata is not complete without making a wish, so don’t forget to write your aspirations on the provided special cards and place them at the “Wishing Place.”
Once again, Disney will have its very own Natsu Matsuri or Summer Festival, which will take place at Tokyo Disneyland from July 10 to September 2, 2018. Catch Mickey and friends pumping up while dancing to the beat and rhythm of traditional Japanese summer music. Be prepared to get wet as the whole gang will be splashing the crowd with water.
