Disney's Party Express was a street show/parade that ran in Tokyo Disneyland from January to May in 2001 to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Walt Disney.


Disney's Party Express is a street show that features 6 different colored trains, each hosted by a Sensational Six character (apart from Winnie the Pooh). All the trains consist of the locomotive, 5 carriages and a caboose. The carriages are covered in giant circular balloons featuring various Disney characters on the roofs with smaller ones around them, while the main locomotive and caboose feature 2 large balloons of the train hosts.

The trains all appear in a separate area from each other when they head into the plaza. Afterwards, they stop and then the party begins. The Dancers then begin to send park guests out, who dance around the plaza with the performers. The music repeats 3 times as the trains begin to move in the plaza circle until they go back to where they were. After the finale confetti cannons go off from the caboose and shoot confetti onto the audience (this feature was scrapped near the end of its run). After the end all the trains go back to where they were before and the show ends.

  • The balloon concept was used in the Party Gras Parade which had its run in Tokyo Disneyland as well, but that was obviously not a train parade and the balloons were taller.
  • This marks the final Tokyo Disneyland appearances of Launchpad McQuack. Afterwards, he does not meet and greet guests.
  • At rare times, Aurora and Phillip and Belle and Lumiere switch places in Minnie and Pooh's train cars.
