Tokyo-Top-Guide Tip* – The Lines are LONG
Did you know that Disneyland Tokyo is one of the most visited theme parks in the world?
During peak season the park sometimes closes its doors and stops letting people in around noon, because it has reached its maximum capacity.

Best time to go to avoid long lines is early in the morning. Collect as many Fastpass tickets as possible (these are the tickets that let you skip lines at Disneyland Rides).

How to get to Disneyland Japan without knowing any Japanese?
Yes, there’s a way…
The train to Disney Tokyo operates from Tokyo Station.
The line that goes to Disneyland is the JR Keiyo Line elevated train.
Maihama is the stop that serves the Disney Japan Resort.
If you take a ‘Local’ train, Maihama will be the sixth stop, if you take a ‘Rapid’ train, it will be the third stop.
Arriving straight from the Airport?
There is a Limo Bus that runs straight from Narita airport to the Disney Resort.
Tickets for the Limo bus are available at the counter which is right at the exit of the Airport.
The buses drive takes about 60 minutes.

Tokyo Disneyland Hotels
For a complete Disney Tokyo trip I suggest you make reservations to one of the Hotels near Disneyland.
These hotels can save time in terms of standing in lines (you go in through hotel guest’s entrance), and no commutating during morning Rush hour.
These are hand picked hotels that are not just “near” Tokyo Disneyland, as some other hotels claim to be…but in the Tokyo Disney Resort itself.
These are the closest, and all offer Disneyland park views from select rooms.
Disney Ambassador Hotel
The location is on grounds of Disney resort, but you can take the ride with the cute Retro Mickey Mouse shuttle to the Tokyo Disneyland Park if you prefer that to walking 5 min.
Disney characters decorate the hotel on mini kid sofas, cups and sheets.
Disney cartoons are on display at the check in area, so you can take your time and ask all the questions you need to while the kids are kept busy.
Amenities in the rooms include little souvenirs with Disney characters.

Tokyo Disneyland Ticket Prices
A few Disney facts you should know if you want to get Cheap Disneyland Tickets.
Disney Japan and Disney Sea have separate Tickets.
You need to buy a ticket for each one of them.
There is a one day ‘passport’ which includes either Disney Park Attractions or Disney Sea Attractions.
If you want to stay more than one day (recommended, both parks are incredible), then buy the Multi-Day passport which gives you some discount. The discount gets really valuable if you buy for 3 days or more.
The Multi-Day Disneyland Tickets lets you enter Disneyland and Disney Sea at the same day.
Park Tickets are sold at Tokyo Disney’s welcome center at the entrance to the park.
But you really don’t want to buy them that way. The lines for buying tickets can take an hour or more.

Always buy Tickets at the Disney Park itself or from a trusted authorized source.
Buying cheap Disney tickets from an unofficial source has led many good people into trouble.
There’s news about fake Disneyland Tickets going around every once in a while.
