Review: Chandu Tails at Tokyo DisneySea

Food friends, it’s time to take a look at one of Tokyo DisneySeas’s most popular (and Instagram-able) snacks: the Chandu Tail!

The adorable Chandu is kind of a big deal at Tokyo Disney, where he gets into mischief on Sindbad’s Storybook Voyage.

As the story goes, Chandu is Sindbad’s pet tiger, and together they embark upon an epic adventure — battling thieves in the process, of course!

And in this part of the park you can find just about EVERYTHING Chandu…including Chandu-themed eats!

The popular Chandu Tails are sold at Sultan’s Oasis in the Arabian Coast section of Tokyo DisneySea. So cute, right?

These are basically steamed buns with a filling of chicken, corn, and cream — what we might consider a simple chicken pot pie filling. The filling isn’t super prominent (there’s more bun than filling), but it’s flavorful and delicious.

The exterior is really fun, with a dark stripe on vibrant orange.

But the Chandu love doesn’t stop at his tail. Nope — there’s lots more merch to go along with this yummy snack! How — how! — can anyone leave without one of those Chandu ticket purses?

In case you’re on the lookout for something to balance the savory tail at Sultan’s Oasis, you can also pick up some sweet Maple Balls.

These are served with or without a swirl of vanilla soft serve ice cream, and they’re accented with dark chocolate drizzle and candied walnuts. The Maple Balls are slightly chewy — somewhere between a doughnut and cake. And they’re addicting! (Check out this guest review of the Maple Balls and other treats from a few years ago!)

Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea are spectacular — and if you are ever in that area of the world, it’s definitely worth a visit. Seeing the interpretation of Disney classics and the inventiveness of Disney’s theme parks in other lands is an experience of a lifetime. And the fun snacks don’t hurt either. ;)

    Spent 24 hours at TDL + TDS in November – the snacks really are fun, and the locals love them too. I saw multiple ridiculous lines for the flavored popcorn of all things!

    The sleeper snack at Sultans Oasis is the Creamy Curry Soup. It was one of my favorite things from Tokyo DisneySea and Disneyland!

    Ate 4 Chandu Tails in one day, that is how delicious they were. I was originally not sure if I’d like it, but every snack in TDR was excellent.
