Here’s a cooler, more magical destination to bring your young kids around to enjoy Mid-Autumn Festival (and save those trees from burning at the Botanic Gardens!). Mega-shopping mall VivoCity has teamed up with The Walt Disney Company Southeast Asia to create the largest Asian record-setting lantern sculpture light up. Dubbed Disney Tsum Tsum: A celebration of Love, over 2000 Tsum Tsum lanterns will be lighted up at VivoCity Sky Park for fanboy to ogle and your selfie galore.
Derived from the Japanese term meaning ‘to stack’, Disney Tsum Tsum is beloved for its range of collectable stuffed toys and mobile games based upon the popular Disney characters. This Mid-Autumn event will showcase Disney Tsum Tsum themed Mid-Autumn lantern installations in four different zones to reflect the different forms and expressions of love.
There is the Fairytale Garden, which is set in a magical and romantic garden with iconic scenes from Snow White, Aladdin, Mulan and Beauty and the Beast. This is the definite must-go for those who love to pose at Madame Tussauds @ Sentosa.
Perhaps the biggest highlight of the event is the Tunnel of Love. Stretching 40m long, the kaleidoscope-like tunnel features Disney Tsum Tsum lanterns of over 30 different Disney and Pixar characters. Once you step inside you would literally feel like being transported to another world, and you would be overwhelmed by kawaii-ness. Try spotting your favourite best pals floating in the midst like Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, Winnie the Pooh, Nemo and Dory.
Once out of the Tunnel of Love, you’ve reached the Wishing Wonderland. Featuring the Ice Palace and the beloved sisters form Disney’s Frozen, Anna and Elsa as well as their friends Sven and Olaf.
For the do-gooders, here you can release a Mid-Autumn Disney Tsum Tsum themed floating lantern wishes for a worthy cause. Simply purchase a wishing card at $2 @ TANGS Customer Service Counter at level 1. 100% of the gross proceeds will be donated to Children’s Cancer Foundation.
Which Disney character has the longest ever-lasting love? Its Mickey and Minnie of course, its everyone’s #CoupleGoals. Standing at 10m tall and made out of 1500 lanterns, this larger-than-life centrepiece is an ode to the most loved Disney couple. Celebrating their 90th anniversary this year, this is truly a love for the ages. This installation also holds a new record in Asia Book of Records as the largest Lantern Sculpture.
Disney Tsum Tsum Installation is available from 30 August till 30 September 2018. Don’t missed out on this opportunity, so do bring your loved ones and family members to enjoy this magical moment.
What’s more, when you spend a minimum of $250 in VivoCity, you get to redeem a limited-edition Disney Tsum Tsum Mid-Autumn-themed ezlink card. VivoCity will launch a different design each week with a total of four to complete the collection. For those who are too excited to wait, the first 200 shoppers who spend a minimum of $800* will receive a special commemorative set comprising all 4 card designs.
