      I'm not a big fan of the "Rubber Head" artwork like in the photo above.

      I'd much rather see the more cartoon/animated artwork of the characters if they are going to draw them. Of course if it's a photograph the rubber heads are just fine!

      Also curious Danimated... what calendar is that you are showing? It isn't the same as the official TDR calendar I have hanging in my office. Is it maybe the OLC Cast Member calendar? I don't recall seeing that calendar on sale at TDR.

      Here is a photo of the official TDR 2013 calendar for April.

        That's the one!

          How can they have a celebration centered around balloons when there's a shortage of helium in Japan and they're not even selling balloons in the parks anymore?

            Fair point but I dont think they anticipated the helium shortage when they planned the 30th. And the helium shortage can be quickly solved depending on how soon some of the plants get back online...

              TDR released a new panoramic advertisement in the Japanese press. Nice! Would've preferred cartoony, though.

              TDR is also going to be releasing a DVD and Blu-ray box set retracing 30 years of the Resort:



              Pics, vid and details here. Sure is beautiful! The set will go on sale April 17th, two days after Happiness starts. Individual volumes will also be available to purchase at later dates. Sure is tempting...

                Is it actually a documentary, or just recordings of the Parades?

                  It is just recordings of the shows and parades, uncut. There are 4 discs, and each has 5 shows or parades on it. Spring, Summer, Fall, and Winter.

                  Some have not been available for sale before. I did notice one person posted a review...yeah, premature, but they said that the Electrical Parade was not recorded in HD, and they were disappointed by that. I am too, especially if you're buying the blu-ray version which should be in HD when possible.

                  So, from what I can gather, here are the shows and parades included. I'll note the versions SD (standard definition) and HD (high definition)

                  Spring:
                  TDL: Tokyo Disneyland 10th Anniversary show "It's Magical!" SD
                  TDL: Club Disney Super Dancin' Mania 2nd Stage "Disco Fever" SD
                  TDS: Spring Carnival Fairy Primavera HD
                  TDL: Easter Wonderland HD
                  TDS: BraviSEAmo! HD

                  Summer:
                  TDL: Mickey Mania parade SD
                  TDL: Blazing Rhythms HD
                  TDL: Cool the Heat HD
                  TDS: Bonfire Dance HD
                  TDL: Disney's Dreams on Parade "Moving On" HD

                  Fall:
                  TDL: Haunted Rockin' Street Halloween Parade HD
                  TDS: Mysterious Masquerade HD
                  TDL: Halloween Street Welcome to SpookyVille HD
                  TDS: 10th Anniversary "Be Magical!" HD
                  TDL: One Man's Dream (Final Performance) SD

                  Winter:
                  TDL: Cinderellabration Lights of Romance HD
                  TDS: Rhythms of the World HD
                  TDL: Mickey's Jolly Snowtime HD
                  TDS: Candlelight Reflections HD
                  TDL: Tokyo Disneyland Electrical Parade SD

                  Now, the complaint about the Electrical Parade was probably about the lack of Dreamlights, because there really isn't a way that the original recording of the TDLEP would even be in HD, since it was retired in 1995.

                    Thanks for that, I was hoping for more of a documentary on the past 30 years of the resort.

                          Thank you for posting this link. When we visited in 2011, we bought the 25 years dvd set and loved it. This would be a great update. Thank you danimated for all your help and information. You are truly a fan.

                          One question: Are the blueray discs from Japan compatible with USA blueray players??

                            Answer is yes. Unlike DVDs, USA and Japan share the same Bluray region code.

                                  Just curious, but do you think we will start seeing more information in the upcoming Disney Fan Magazine, or will we have to wait for the late February magazine issue release.

                                    Based on the preview pages in the 12/12 released February magazine, it doesn't look like there is much of anything regarding the 30th Anniversary in the 1/22 release March edition.

                                    The March edition will have features on household goods merchandise, Sweet Duffy event, TDL and TDS snack foods, upcoming Tinker Bell movie, Peter Pan 60th. WDW New Fantasyland and a small photo presentation of 30 years of TDR.

                                          Thanks Travis! Sorry got my dates mixed up. If TDL will be busy on opening day will TDS be any slower?
