Photographer captures photos of Tokyo Disneyland in the snow

Snow in a Disney park is something many Disney fans dream of seeing, and @mickey2017d on Instagram was able to capture these awe-inspiring photos of Tokyo Disneyland in the snow.

On average, it only snows nine days a year in Tokyo, so to catch a major snowfall such as this (combined with the Disney themed-lighting and limited crowds) was truly a magical moment. At the time of writing, the forecasted Tokyo temperature is 32º fahrenheit with 10% of rain, so snow could return again soon.

In Critter Country and Westernland, we see these stunning views of Splash Mountain and the Mark Twain Riverboat. Splash Mountain remains at Tokyo Disneyland, unlike in Florida where the Magic Kingdom park just closed its Splash Mountain attraction for the upcoming Tiana’s Bayou Adventure. However, Splash Mountain at Tokyo Disneyland is currently closed until Feb. 17, 2023, for yearly refurbishment.

In Toontown we can see cascading snow covering the cartoon-ish world. At Disneyland Park in California, Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway has officially opened, while in Japan, the colorful and wacky Toontown is enjoying a true winter.

No photo tour of Tokyo Disneyland in the snow would be complete without these looks at Cinderella Castle. This majestic piece of architecture is complimented by the snowfall, making an already magical place seem even more unreal.

Finally, we can look around at the Haunted Mansion, the Fantasyland Forest Theatre, and the grand entrance to Tokyo Disneyland Park. These shots showcase the moodiness of Haunted Mansion, the grandeur of the main entrance, and the warm welcome from the new Fantasyland Forest Theatre.

We haven’t been able to see Tokyo Disneyland in the snow, but we did get lucky enough to ride Big Thunder Mountain in the snow at Disneyland Paris.

  1. I’m glad to read that Tokyo Disney is keeping Splash mountain in original form. I’m one of those Disney adults that is upset to see it change.
