TOKYO DISNEY SEA'S 10TH ANNIVERSARY "BE MAGICAL" - Let's take a look at the Official site!

Hi Disney Guys and Gals!
A new kind of magic has begun!

I'm continuing my previous post about TDS' 10th Anniversary "Be Magical" that has been going on since April 28th 2011. However, the 4th of September was TDS' official birthday and the park is now celebrating ten magical years with a brand new concept, "Be Magical!"

In my previous post, I discussed briefly what the event entails but I mainly provided links to other blogs and sites that covered the event. Today I am going to take a look at the official site for the event and discuss some of the features that will be a big part of "Be Magical!"

If you wish to visit the official site, HERE is the link!

Official site for the event:

I'm going to translate each of the "points" to do with the event that are discussed on the official site. Please excuse the translations, they were a little rushed due to work commitments, but I think they still give a good picture of what the event entails.

Translated below
Point 1 - 10th Anniversary event "Be Magical!"

Wearing a Magic hat that is imbued with mysterious powers, Mickey Mouse has become the Sorcerer's Apprentice! With help from his close pals, Mickey will awaken the dormant magic within Tokyo Disney Sea's 10th Anniversary!

By doing so, mysterious hats have magically appeared inside each of Tokyo Disney Sea's 7 ports!

Guests visiting the park will also wield the magic as they are invited to visit a magical sea that has been transformed from the everyday world into a place filled with Disney Fantasy!
In every direction guests turn, they will be faced with experiences filled to the brim with magic and fantasy.

Along with your favourite Disney pals, you will experience a day filled with heart warming moments.
Let's fly away to the land of dreams and magic, to a sea filled with Disney Magic!

The Seven Sorcerer's Ambassadors:

Sounds pretty neat, huh? I'd like to take a look at the characters and the Magic hats that have appeared in each of TDS' seven themed-ports. Each of these magic hats are associated with a character. The seven main characters involved in the event are;

Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck, Goofy, Chip and Dale, Ariel and Genie.

Starting with Mickey Mouse, 7 Disney characters have been transformed into Sorcerer's mbassadors for the 10th anniversary. By spreading to each of the seven themed ports, the magic of the 10th anniversary event has awakened.

In doing so, each of the themed ports have an ambassador who has used their magical powers to bring forth a magic hat shaped monument.
