    The Voice of Tokyo Disneyland?

    Sorry if this has been asked before, but who does the voice overs for the parade/show announcements?

    We were sent over there with the message that only we would defend Disney quality.. We learnt quickly that the Japanese culture speaks to a level of quality that is hard to comprehend. They were all unbelievably skilled and willing to do the right thing.

    The japanese voice is one of the former TDL Ambassadors. The english announcements are made by an american guy who I believe works in radio in Tokyo. JoeINJpn can provide more info on this.. but Travis, don't you agree these two are probably the very best voices available out there of any of the Disney parks?

    Travis here is a qoute taken from JoeInJpn's Nempa Blog back in 2006. Giving more detail on the information you requested.

    Here in Tokyo, they are done in Japanese and English. The "oshirase" in Japanese are done by a former TDL Ambassador from 1986, Hiroko Igarashi. However, in English, they are done by American Kevin Common
    Hopely Joe can chime in with some additional information.

    I miss Jack Wagner, for those of you with really good memories. He was the voice of Disneyland for many decades.

    Also, some of the English announcements at TDR are done by frequent Disney voice talent Corey Burton, including the English announcements on the Resort Line.
