You're Invited... Again

Last year, Tokyo DisneySea held their first ever Halloween theme, a Masquerade party, if you will. (I even remarked on the event as seen here.) And guess what? They're doing it again! Yay! Though I can't be there myself (since my mom and/or I couldn't afford to go to Japan which was the case last year, too), I'm so glad TDS decided to bring back this fun Halloween theme. This year, they added a Mexican Fiesta hosted by Chip, Dale, and Clarice, the chipmunk singer who caught Chip and Dale's eye in the classic cartoon "Two Chips and a Miss".

The "MOUSEquerade" is back and Daisy joins the fun this year. (Last year, it was just Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Goofy, Chip, and Dale.) And another thing you'll notice is that the main gang are wearing masks throughout the entire dance. Other than that, it's pretty much the same as last year. is the "Mysterious Masquerade" stage show at the Tower of Terror. Most of the show is left unchanged, but at the happy ending, the whole gang has masks on instead of just Mickey. I once explained my vision of the show should it be brought to the U.S., however, there's another version reeling in my head. It goes like this: Most of the cast is the same, but I've also included Horace Horsecollar, Clarabelle Cow, and the aforementioned Clarice. Like in my original vision, Goofy doesn't turn into an evil pirate and Minnie doesn't become a possessed Egyptian queen. Instead, Horace is the pirate and Clarabelle is the Egyptian queen. This leaves Mickey, Minnie, and Goofy left to save the day by getting eveyone to dance with them, even the unsure Clarice. Vidia, the fast-flying fairy rival of Tinker Bell, would teach the audience the dance. Another variation has Goofy's son, Max, in Clarice's place. What do you think of my recent idea?

You can see vids of both shows (from both this year and last year) on YouTube by searching "MOUSEquerade" and/or "Mysterious Masquerade". Hope they do all this again next year, too, 'cause it might still be a while for the U.S. Disney Parks to get this Halloween theme.

UPDATE 10/28/10: The Disney Parks Blog just posted a look at not only Tokyo DisneySea's Halloween celebration, but also Tokyo Disneyland's Halloween theme this year. Check it out here and let them know how much we want this in the American Disney Parks.

Wow. I can't believe that they have the same theme. And this year, you said that Mickey, Minnie and Goofy will save the day. "Two Heroes and A Heroine", I would call that.

Actually, Mickey, Minnie, and Goofy saving the day was just how I envisioned the show would be should it come to the U.S. Mickey saves the day on his own in the actual version both years.
