Tokyo Disneyland International Food & Kawaii Festival


After our first visit to Tokyo Disneyland, we shared some of our favorite snacks in a post covering what we tried while there. We’ve been back to Japan a few times since, and thought it was finally time to share some more of what we’ve tried. While there is not a “Food & Kawaii Festival” at Tokyo Disneyland, the park’s many snack stands might as well be one.

One thing we’ve stressed on the blog is how a trip to Japan doesn’t have to break the bank. Between the current value of the dollar versus the yen, low airfare prices, and cheap on-site hotels at Tokyo Disney Resort, visiting the Japanese parks could be cheaper than you think. We’re going to do a post (or series) comparing our costs of a recent visit to Walt Disney World to our current trip to Japan.

Snacking will not be a part of that post or series. If you want to do Tokyo Disneyland on a dime, do not make eye contact with the snack stands or allow yourself to hear their siren song. Think of this more like a kawaii version of the Epcot Food & Wine Festival (hence the post title). It’s fun to graze those booths and try the snacks, but the costs can creep up on you. Same goes here, and one person can eat a surprising number of snacks in a day. Well, if you’re a crazy pig like me, at least. Fortunately, I’m in good company, as Sarah loves to snack, too. Actually, I’m not sure the words “I don’t enjoy eating Disney snacks” have ever been uttered in a Disney theme park.

Rather than sharing photos of the snacks again, we decided to try something different for our current trip. Well, I should say our pig-padre Guy Selga decided to try something different, and we just sorta piggybacked on the idea. He put together a video of us trying 15 of the best snacks at Tokyo Disneyland:

Hope you enjoyed it. We’ve been dabbling with more video on our Facebook page during the course of this trip, and are curious what you think about video. Neither Sarah nor I are all that comfortable in front of the camera, which has resulted in some awkwardly bad (deleted) videos. Being awkward and bad at things has never stopped us in the past, so if you’d like to see us try vlog style content (in addition to text-based posts) please let us know in the comments. If you are not interested in vlogs, feel free to let us know that, too!

If you’re thinking of visiting Japan for the first time and are overwhelmed with planning, definitely check out our Tokyo Disney Resort Planning Guide. It covers much more than the parks, from getting there to WiFi to currency and much, much more. For more photos and an idea of what we did day-by-day during our first visit, read our Tokyo Disney Resort Trip Report.
