Dreaming Up! is a daytime parade that will premiere on April 15, 2018 at Tokyo Disneyland, as part of the park's 35th anniversary celebration. It will replace Happiness is Here Parade, it features Mickey Mouse and his Disney Friends take Guests to a world of fantasy and imagination as the five units and 13 floats immerse Guests in the many wonders of the Disney dream.

The resort's 35th anniversary promotion, titled "Happiest Celebration!", ran from April 15, 2018, through March 20, 2019.


Dreaming Up! presents these stories through a spectacle fleet of fantastical floats. The parade reflects the hard, creative work of Parade Designer Jody Daily and Kevin Kidney, Creative Director Steven Davison and Managing Producer Kris Bunner. Many others have contributed to the Dreaming Up!. Mark Hammond, whose previous work includes Disneyland Paris’s Disney Stars on Parade and Hong Kong Disneyland’s Flights of Fantasy Parade, designed the musical score. Mirena Rada, who has previously worked on projects for Disneyland Resort, Walt Disney World Resort and Hong Kong Disneyland Resort, designed the costumes.

On March 16, 2018, Tokyo Disney Resort rolled out the red carpet to show off the latest elaborate costume creations for their upcoming Dreaming Up!, debuting next month. With a backdrop of three of the new giant-sized floats, Disney sent parade performers walking the “catwalk” backstage behind the Tokyo Disneyland to unveil costumes inspired by films.
