On June 7, 2021, Tokyo Disney Resort announced a new event at Tokyo Disney Sea called “Time to Shine!.”

Tokyo Disney Sea opened on September 4, 2001, and is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year. There will be a “Time to Shine!” harbor show, special merchandise, and special food.

I’ll be sharing about Tokyo Disney Sea’s 20th Anniversary “Time to Shine!.”

What is “Time to Shine!” at Tokyo Disney Sea 20th Anniversary?

“Time to Shine!” is an event to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Tokyo Disney Sea.

Special Merchandise

“Time to Shine!” special goods will be on sale.

They have plush toys, pin badges, stationery, and more. In addition, although not shown in the image, some exclusive personalized items and items that are only available in a limited quantity will also be found at the Park during the event period. I want to get my hands on some of these.

There are also goods for Duffy and his friends. The theme is “Starry Dreams of Duffy & Friends.” I’m sure they’ll be trendy too. Duffy & Friends goods will be available for pre-sale from September 3.

Special Menus

Tokyo Disney Sea restaurants and food wagons will be selling special foods to celebrate the 20th anniversary.

The restaurant will be having “Seasonal Taste Selections” based on seasonal themes. The photo above is an example of the menu at Ristorante di Canaletto, where I previously introduced stone oven pizza.

The food wagon in the Park will be serving 20th-anniversary churros. Churros at Tokyo Disney Resort are delicious, aren’t they?

I shared about Tokyo DisneySea’s 20th Anniversary “Time to Shine!”
As a Disney fan, I’m happy to see that 2021 is looking brighter than 2020 when there were no events at all!

Tokyo Disney Sea has a lot of events coming up; Fantasy Springs will open in 2023. If you want to know more, read New theme Port, “Fantasy Springs,” Opening at Tokyo Disney Sea in 2023.
