tdr0773_History of Mickey’s costumes in Disney Halloween parades


For about one month from early September to the end of October, Tokyo Disney Resort holds a big autumn event “Disney Halloween”, where everything becomes Halloweenish.

The Halloween event has been held since 1997 in Tokyo Disneyland and since 2008 in Tokyo DisneySea. Many guests visit there from around Japan to enjoy the event.

At first, it was just a one-day event. From 2000, it was expanded into a long-term event like the current one with a variety of special programs.

The highlight of the event is the parade. The parade is popular for the Halloween costumes of Mickey and other characters that match the theme of the parade.

Every year, their costumes are attracting people’s attentions.
