Everyone has had Disney fever at least once in their life! It’s probably the happiest epidemic ever to hit the inner child in us. If you’re a true Disney fan, Tokyo Disney Resort will be no stranger to you. It is home not only to the ever-fabulous Disneyland, but also the world’s only DisneySea!

The sheer amount of things to plan for a trip to Tokyo Disney Resort can be overwhelming. But don’t you worry! This accommodation guide for you to make the most of your stay in Tokyo, so you can save your energy to plan the most epic time at the Disney parks.

Tokyo Disneyland

Tokyo Disneyland follows a tried and trusted template of enchanting, kid-pleasing fun but with a subtle Japanese twist. It takes all the best bits of the original Disneyland in California and Florida’s Magic Kingdom and weaves it together to create a distinctive east-meets-west experience. All the classic Disney-centric landmarks are also here! That includes Cinderella’s Castle and unique rides like Pooh’s Hunny Hunt and Monster’s Inc!

The resort’s undoubted appeal is with families with kids, and it certainly ramps up the cuteness factor in the captivating Toontown and adorable animatronics of Critter Country. Neighbouring Tokyo DisneySea has the lion’s share of the thrill rides. But there is still plenty of heart-in-mouth action to be had on the iconic Space Mountain and Buzz Lightyear’s Astro Blasters shoot-em-up ride.

Nautical Tokyo DisneySea showcases a wild, watery kingdom of seafaring thrills and maritime based mayhem. Featuring themed “ports of call”, visitors can explore a Mediterranean Harbor, American Waterfront and Mermaid Lagoon, just to name a few. There are also lots of action on the boats, hi-tech wizardry in the form of live Fantasmic shows. For pure adrenaline thrills, check out the thrilling Tower of Terror and Journey to the Center of the Earth.

Most suited to adults and teens rather than tots, even if you’re a self-confessed Disney addict you’ll be entering a new realm at Tokyo DisneySea. There is so much to love about it, including its immaculate design concepts and scenery, often acclaimed as the best Disney park on the planet.

Disney delights are the obvious lure, but there is so much more to discover in and around Tokyo Bay. Check out the wonders of the deep at Tokyo Sea Life Park or climb aboard the Ferris Wheel at Kasai Rinkai Park for a bird’s eye view of the bay. The Urayasu neighbourhood is one of Tokyo’s less frenetic areas with widely photogenic boulevards and green spaces where you can experience a more carefree urban vibe.

Tokyo Disneyland and DisneySea tickets are available in 1-Day or 2-Day passes.
