TDL's Magical Moments??


New Member
Hello everyone! I'm new the boards - was referred by another board and hope that you'll all be able to help!

I have a question about a Tokyo Disneyland show or parade. I'm actually not sure what it is and hopefully you all can give me some information.

About a few years ago, I d/led a song called "Magical Moments." The file name says it's from Tokyo Disneyland and I'm sure it is because there's Japanese dialogue in the middle of the song.

They sing in English in the beginning... here are the lyrics:
Celebrate the magic of Disney
Just wish upon a star that shines above
Into the world of Make Believe
Celebrate the magic of love

Celebrate the magic of Disney
And happiness is found around the bend
For all your dreams and fantasies
Magically will never end

Magical Moments
That's what Disney is all about
Magical Moments
That bring a laugh, a tear or smile
And feel the beauty in the magic
Be it physical or tragic
And the moments come to life right from the start
Then the magic you remember lasts forever in your heart

The Japanese dialogue follows this - and I think it's either Jiminy Cricket or Gepetto because I can hear him say "Pinocchio" a few times.

Does anyone know which show/parade I'm talking about? Does anyone have more info about it? Maybe some pictures too?? I've tried searching for it on the internet and have not been able to find ANY information!

Thanks everyone!



Yes, I know what you are talking about.
It's a beautiful song.
It is the opening song from the 15th anniversary musical show ?Viva! Magic? held at eight cities outside the park. Most importantly, it is not from the show ?Viva! Magic? held at the castle forecourt stage all the year around.
This is a kind of show to advertise the Tokyo Disneyland 15th anniversary with the TDL ambassador, Disney characters and dancers for a local citizen.
Here is the list of this show schedule. (The year is 1998)
