Starting in April and running through Christmas, the Tokyo parks have a full calendar of fun in distinct Disney style.

April 1 – June 30 – Special event “Disney Easter” returns to Tokyo Disneyland for the first time in three years, including the presentation of “Usatama on the Run.” “Usatama” links the two Japanese words, “usagi” (rabbit) and “tama” (egg), resulting in the wacky bunny-eared egg characters who join with Disney friends in a romp along the park’s parade route.
