Anyone who's been to Tokyo or is planning to go probably knows that Tokyo Disneyland is a must visit.

We've written extensively on Muslim-friendly tips to conquer Tokyo Disneyland and Disneysea, where we've noted that halal-certified dining options aren't available ☹️ But we've got some great news: the halal-certified food truck Anadolu Kebab will be serving up kebabs and ice-cream for a limited period of time at Ikspiari (the shopping mall at Tokyo Disney Resort that's located between Maihama Station and the Disney Ambassador Hotel)!

Anadolu Kebab has been operating food trucks around Tokyo selling Turkish-style kebabs and ice cream since 2010. It has since expanded its business to sell halal food, kitchen utensils and equipment online and received its halal certification from the Japan Islamic Trust in 2017!

The food truck will be at Ikspiari, along with other special food trucks and performances, in honour of  'Golden Week' for this year. The Golden Week refers to an annual event where many Japanese employees get about a week of holidays (usually from the end of April until early May) due to a cluster of national holidays that happen around this time.

This year's Golden Week is extra long (about 10 days), in honour of the imperial succession taking place (from the abdication of Emperor Akihito to the ascension of Crown Prince Naruhito)!

The food truck will be at Ikspiari  (at 2F Celebration Plaza, a short walk away from the JR Maihama train station) from 27 April 2019 (Saturday) to 6 May 2019 (Monday), from 12pm - 7pm daily. It will be selling doner kebabs priced at JPY600, along with ice cream.

While this offering of a halal dining option at Tokyo Disney Resort is a temporary one, we are so excited as it's the very first of its kind, and we're hoping that this is indicative of more halal (and permanent) options at Tokyo Disney Resort in the future!
