Disney fans rejoice! Tokyo Disneyland has resumed its magical nighttime parade, Dreamlights, one of the highlights of visiting the theme park. The parade made its debut in 2001 and features a number of massive illuminated floats based on different Disney classics, including Alice in Wonderland, Aladdin, Rapunzel, Cinderella, Frozen, Beauty and the Beast, and other famous flicks.

Note that in case of rain, the Dreamlights parade is replaced by the smaller-scale Nightfall Glow parade.

Along with extending opening hours until 8pm at Tokyo Disneyland and until 9pm at Tokyo DisneySea, Tokyo Disney Resort recently increased ticket prices at both parks.

That doesn’t seem to have slowed demand – we hear Tokyo Disneyland tickets are disappearing fast, so be sure to book yours via the website while you can.
