Tokyo Disneyland Hotel review – The Points Guy

Are you visiting Tokyo Disneyland and hoping to stay as close to the park as possible while still enjoying comfortable rooms and whimsical decor? The Tokyo Disneyland Hotel may be the best Tokyo Disney hotel for you. Here’s what a recent stay there was like.

What it’s like at the Tokyo Disneyland Hotel

The Tokyo Disneyland Hotel is directly off the Disney Resort Line Station (aka the monorail) and the entrance to Tokyo Disneyland. It feels like an extension of Main Street crossed with the Disney Grand Floridian Resort and Spa in Florida, thanks to its grand, festive stylings like sweeping staircases and soaring chandeliers.

Though slower lines can form at check-in, the public spaces were orderly and in good condition, and the service was very polite and helpful. The presence of various English-speaking cast members was an added perk.

How much Tokyo Disneyland Hotel costs and how to book

While prices vary by date and room type, currently, the least expensive rates start around $390 per night. Conveniently and somewhat unusually for Japan, there are rooms for three and four adult guests, which is great for families. Listed room prices are generally for two adults and up to two children 11 or under, with per-person fees applied otherwise.


You can book stays online starting four months in advance; certain room types sell out fast, so reserve early. There is a $200-per-room deposit at the time of booking. The rest is payable at check-in.

I recommend the themed rooms based on movies like “Alice in Wonderland” and characters like Tinkerbell. We selected “Beauty and the Beast,” which had three single beds and cost about $570 for our one-night mid-March stay.

Rooms at Tokyo Disneyland Hotel

Our “Beauty and the Beast” room had fanciful, jewel-toned furnishings and sumptuous accents. It featured sconce lighting, fairytale castle-inspired drapes and exaggerated bed headboards with rose motifs that made it feel like a castle room filled with Belle’s books and friends. It took the theme of this story into much more detail than you’ll typically find at Disney hotels in the U.S. Even the cups and amenity kits in the bathroom were themed.

The beds were a bit firm, but that is common in Japan; the multiple pajama sets we found in the wardrobe to borrow were a convenient touch.

We couldn’t have loved this spacious and characterful room more, as it was both functional and thematically bright, happy and full of fun.

Insider tip: If you happen to have a window view toward the park when it closes at night, turn off the light in your room and use your phone’s flashlight to wave to those heading home for the evening. Odds are high they will signal back.


What we ate at Tokyo Disneyland Hotel

There are three restaurants at the Tokyo Disneyland Hotel: Sherwood Garden (buffet-style dining), Canna (higher-end dining) and Dreamers Lounge in the lobby. You can make online reservations for the first two restaurants, but we just popped into the lounge for breakfast.

The buffet was just $24 for adults, $14 for kids 7 to 12 and $8 for children 4 to 6 years old — a steal compared to Disney prices in the U.S. There were Japanese and Western staples such as miso soup, rice, scrambled eggs, sausage, pastries, sliced fruit and juice. It was a simple breakfast, but one that felt elegant, given the refined service and grandeur of the space.

Amenities and things to do

The hotel offers several useful amenities, both Disney-related and not:

  • Two shops — one for market items and one for Disney souvenirs.
  • Bibbity Bobbity Boutique for princess makeovers. Prices here start at about $60, but for packages that include a full princess makeover with a gown (which looked much nicer than U.S. versions), expect to pay over $200.
  • Pool (summer only, currently scheduled for mid-July 2024 opening and there are fees to use it).
  • Smoking lounge.
  • Laundry room.
  • Luggage transfer service if you are moving to another Tokyo Disney hotel.
  • 15-minute early Happy Entry each morning to both Tokyo Disney theme parks. Tip: Line up for the service at least 30 minutes before the scheduled Happy Entry time. That way, you can line up your daily rides in the app and avoid long lines. (Note that starting June 6, 2024, Happy Entry will only be available for Tokyo Disneyland when staying at this hotel until further notice.)
  • Accessibility: The Tokyo Disneyland Hotel has accessible Deluxe Rooms with wide spaces for maneuvering personal devices, grab rails by the toilet and bath tub and a sliding door to the bathroom. For more details and to ensure you can reserve a room that meets your requirements, contact the hotel directly.

Insider tips for staying at the Tokyo Disneyland Hotel

Here are some other tips when staying at the Tokyo Disneyland Hotel:

  • When using Happy Entry, make sure you are directed to the right security line for that service; it’s much faster than the normal line.
  • Online ticket purchases can sometimes be challenging with U.S. credit cards, but staying here guarantees you can buy tickets to the park when you arrive.
  • You can request child-size pajamas from the front desk when you check in.
  • Pre-order early-morning room service the day before or you might not get your preferred time slot. It offers a set menu for $32 per adult and $19 per child.
  • Some of the many room types have trundle beds, which can help with sleeping arrangements; read each room description carefully to choose the best one for your needs.

Bottom line

While our time at the Tokyo Disneyland Hotel was brief, it felt magical and grand — a true highlight of our trip.

Although it’s the closest hotel to Tokyo Disneyland, you could spend some time here and then move to one of the two hotels nearest Tokyo DisneySea (Tokyo DisneySea Fantasy Springs Hotel and Tokyo DisneySea MiraCosta Hotel) and its soon-to-open Fantasy Spring section for the rest. Plus, the staff will move your luggage for free.

But to feel like you’re sleeping in an actual castle, the Tokyo Disneyland Hotel takes the crown.
