My New Disney Corner 新しいディズニーコーナー。

As you may know, a few months ago, my husband and I moved to a new apartment. The apartment we live in now is much bigger than the old one, ...

Scrump's Dizception Sunday スクランプのディズニー内のディズニー日曜日

After a long break, we are back with Scrump's Dizception Sunday!!! Today, we are looking at one of Disney's more underappreciated animated movies, to find someone who definitely is not underappreciated.

Finding Mickey- Hunchback of Notre Dame

If we take a look at the image above (which I found at specific link in the caption) from the Hunchback of Notre Dame, we will see someone very familiar. In fact, we see my favourite Disney Princess, Belle, from Beauty and the Beast.

This cameo is quite fun, as both Beauty and the Beast and the Hunchback of Notre Dame take place in France, though in different cities and different times.

Lilo Loves Disney リロはディズニーが大好きだ

Hello everyone! Did you know that Lilo loves Disney just as much as we do? It makes sense really. Disney stories are interesting, fun, romantic, and bring people together. As such, I would like to let you all know about a new regular feature post that will be happening soon, "Lilo Loves Disney: Lilo's Five Reasons to Love..."

Each of these posts will be about a different Disney movie (or maybe something else Disney related too), and will list five reasons to love that particular movie. Maybe Lilo's reasons for loving these movies will be similar to yours! In which case, let her know! She would love to hear from you!

New Projection Show at WDW ウォルトディズニーワールドの新しいプロジェクションーショー

It was announced yesterday that, from November 4th, a new projection show will begin at WDW, called 'Once Upon a Time', based upon the show of the same name that exists at Tokyo Disneyland.

In 'Once Upon a Time', you will be able to enjoy a story, told to you by Mrs. Potts, from Beauty and the Beast. Enjoy the stories, and the music, and the magic, as the show is projected onto Cinderella Castle, using projection mapping. Below is a short snippet of the Tokyo Disneyland version of the show.

Mickey's Birthday Adventure ミッキーのお誕生日アドベンチャー

Next month is Mickey Mouse's birthday!!! Can you believe it? 

To celebrate, Mickey himself has decided to spend the time until then travelling around the world, and enjoying many different cultures. You can follow these adventures directly on Mickey's personal Facebook page.

So far, he has played basketball in Los Angeles, and learned a traditional dance in Kyoto, and the videos can be seen on his Facebook page. Are you hoping that he visits your home town as a part of his celebration? Even if I don't actually get to see him, I hope that he can enjoy the Sydney Opera House, or Harbour Bridge. It would be exciting for him to visit Australia, since we don't have a Disney Park, so that is a rare chance!

Tsum Tsum Halloween Event ツムツムハロウィンエベント

This past month, a Halloween event has been running in the Disney/LINE Tsum Tsum game (at least in Australia). It has been a lot of fun, and I was very excited to manage to finish the event!!! So, I thought I would make a post, showing you a bit about it.


So, over this month, when you play a game, you can occasionally pop bubbles that allow you to collect candy. That candy goes inside a Jack-o-Lantern, and once it is full, you receive a reward, and move onto the next one. There was a wide variety of rewards, such as 'extra experience' tickets. I think the most exciting reward had to be the Rattle Bones Pluto Tsum Tsum though. By the end of the event. he is fully upgraded!


If you are able to fill all of the Jack-o-lanterns, then you receive a special pin for your collection! I am so proud to have completed them all, that I am displaying my pin on my profile!


And of course, there are special Halloween Tsum Tsums avaliable in the shop, from the Premium Box. There is a special Mickey, Minnie, Chip and Dale, available until the 31st of October. So far, I have only managed to get Minnie. Hopefully I will be able to get at least one more!

Happy Easter!!! イースターです!!!

Hello everyone, and happy Easter! Did anybody else receive any Disney themed chocolate? My mum gave me an Elsa chocolate, rather than an Easter Bunny. And, she gave my husband a Storm Trooper one!

It Was Recently Hinamatsuri! 最近、ひな祭りでした!

I just wanted to let everyone know that I am still here, and I plan to continue working on this blog. I have had a very busy month, and now I am back at uni, and the workload for Advanced Japanese is pretty intense! 

Recently in Japan, it was Hinamatsuri. Hinamatsuri is an annual festival, that takes place on the 3rd of March. This festival is dedicated to praying for the health and wellbeing of daughters in the family. To do this, from around the middle of February, families can display special dolls that sit on a special platform. These dolls and the platform represent the imperial palace and it's inhabitants. Even though the Hinamatsuri we know today didn't begin until the Edo period (1603-1868), the dolls wear Heian period (794-1185) kimono. After the festival, the dolls must be put away quickly, as it is said that leaving them out for too long can delay the marriage of your daughter.

These days though, you can buy many different modern doll sets, such as Hello Kitty, and even Disney! I prefer the more traditional looking dolls despite loving Disney, but they are still really cute!

Which kind of doll do you prefer?

Featured Channel- Sen, Momo & Ai Channel おすすめチャンネルーせんももあいチャンネル

Every now and then, I like to share YouTube channels here that I really enjoy, in the hopes that others will be able to enjoy them just as much as I do!

Today's channel is Sen, Momo & Ai Channel. This channel is very interesting and cute, and quite often, you get to take adventures with the stars to various Disney parks. It looks like the family has a lot of fun together, and I hope that they continue to grow closer in the future!

Please check them out!

Disney Chocolates ディズニーのチョコ

On Tuesday, I helped my mum set up a new fish tank for her pet goldfish (I used to work in a pet shop, and since I love animals so much, I remember a lot of what I learned there). As a thank you, my mum bought me these Disney chocolates! 

I have had them once before. When I was on holidays with mum and my sister, I bought the Minnie Mouse tin when we stopped over at a lolly shop. They are quite yummy, though I think I am more excited about the tins than the chocolates : )

New Disney Fan Magazines 新しいディズニーファン雑誌

I was recently able to purchase the most recent issues of Disney Fan! I got the January issue, and the February issue.


Usually I purchase these online, at YesAsia, but with the Australian dollar as it has been, it has actually been cheaper to buy them at Kinokuniya as I see them. 

The January issue contains a vintage art calendar, but I probably won't use it. I already have my planner that I like to use (though I will need to import another one soon- look out for a post on my planners in the future).

I really enjoy reading these magazines. As my Japanese skill progresses, I find that I can read more and more, which is very exciting. And, since I love Disney so much, I truly want to be able to read them- it can be hard to stay motivated when you are studying another language.

Also, because Japan markets Disney towards young women, and not just children, these magazines are very interesting, and not too childish. If you ever get the chance, I think you should have a look at them!

Hong Kong Disneyland 10th Anniversary 香港ディズニーランド10周年

My friend Michelle is currently at Hong Kong Disneyland, enjoying their 10th anniversary. I would be lying if I said that I wasn't at least a little bit jealous.

She knows how much I love Disney, and so she has been sending me lots of really nice photos of park attractions, signs and of course merchandise. The following photos really stood out to me. This display exists for the 10th anniversary of the park, and it shows the characters in their special anniversary outfits. 

I thought I would share the photos with you (and with Michelle's permission of course), so that you could see some of the magic that my friend has experienced!



My Happy Video 私のハッピービデオ

Whenever I am feeling a little bit sad about something, there is one video on YouTube that I like to watch. It cheers me up to see so many people loving a place that I love, and seeing characters that always make me feel like a kid again. I would like to share that with you here, and I hope that you like it too!

Star Wars スターウォーズ

Yesterday Luke and I went to see the new Star Wars movie. We both enjoyed it a lot. I will be posting a review for it in the next few days- once I figure out exactly how to translate it into Japanese as well. The review will be spoiler free, so do not fret!

Have you seen the new Star Wars movie? Did you like it?

It's 2016! 2016年です!

Hi everyone! I am sorry that I haven't posted in a long time, but I have been very busy over the past month! Christmas and the New Year can be very socially demanding!

Anyway, it is officially 2016! I have many hopes for this year. I hope to pass my third year of Japanese. I hope to take my second trip to Japan in October, for my third wedding anniversary. I hope to enter the Japanese Language Speech Contest again. And, I hope to make new friends!

What do you hope for 2016?
