Not to be outdone, Tokyo DisneySea also has food, drink, and snacks to enjoy during the Holiday Season...

The highlight is the new “Taste of Christmas” festive snacks and hot drinks in the American Waterfront. We’re especially looking forward to the BBQ pork rice roll, teriyaki chicken roll, and the hot apricot cocktail.

All the photos of all the yummy stuff, with prices, are at http://www.tdrexplorer.com

***There's also now at tdr, an article on what the Tokyo Disney Hotels are serving. Oooh my eyes & stomach.....

Tokyo Disney Sea is bringing back a park fave for their Holiday Season, on now.

A Taste of Christmas is like a mini very mini EPCOT Food & Wine Festival, but
only on this one pier there...Pier 33. A favourite rest stop for myself,
during past visits to TDS.

Like before it will be offering festive drinks (alcohol and non-) and snacks to enjoy the season.

But I had to smile when I saw this PR photo of it's set up, posted by http://www.tdrexplorer.com
(thank you!). It's obviously a total photo-shop of the pier, with the giveaway being that "barrel"
in front. It started me looking everywhere else in the photo. It was all stuck on, that way.

I do hope the real thing, now open, looks as good as this "artist conception" does. :mickey:
That barrel looks like it's a sticker! It does! :P

^Very interesting! Do we know exactly where it is going? I googled the address but that didn't really work, other than to assume it should be IN the main area!??!

If they build a Slinky themed room, they can take my money.

This is where the new hotel will go. Where the Tokyo Bay NK Hall is/was. You can just see the Tokyo Bay Hilton Hotel on the right.

From the "And now I realize" Dept...

I was poking around there and here, and just discovered that Osaka has been awarded the rights
of holding a World's Fair there....in 2025. The same year that Tokyo Disney will (hopefully)
have all it's major projects and attractions finished, and opened and running, by.

Now I realize this isn't "The Main Reason" for Tokyo Disney to add all these new attractions, lands,
and hotels when they are. But it's like they were hedging their bets for 2025. Nonetheless, Osaka
won the rights, and Disney should get HUGE benefits, from their World EXPO.

And Universal Osaka, too.

Japan elected host country of World Expo 2025 - Nov.23 2018

Member States of the Bureau International des Expositions (BIE) today elected Japan as host country of World Expo 2025.

After two rounds of voting during the BIE’s 164th General Assembly in Paris, a majority of Member States voted for Japan’s project to organise World Expo 2025 in Osaka, Kansai under the theme “Designing Future Society for Our Lives” between 3 May and 3 November 2025.

So, Beauty and The Beast "Land" plus Big Hero 6 (and the popcorn place), and Soaring will be ready
for the 2020 Olympics. The rest of the Disney Resort will/should be all ready for the world, in 2025,
for Japan's World EXPO.

So for now, they got two new hotels in the works! Anyone planning that far in advance? :mickey:
Japan's reaction to the selection. But - no, no, not Hello Kitty as it's mascot? How dare Universal! :P
