Tokyo Disneyland Small World ride

If you’ve ever tried booking a Tokyo Disneyland Hotel room on the official website you may have already come away frustrated at how difficult it is to navigate.

High room demand and complicated booking rules make it even more difficult to understand, particularly with some of the website pages not offering English translations, and in some instances, less value-adds for non-Japanese resident users.

Luckily, our Tokyo Disneyland Facebook Group members are generously sharing their successful techniques to secure the Tokyo Disney hotel rooms of their choice – and much more!

Here are our group member’s tips, tricks and hacks to book TDL hotel rooms, room prices, best times to visit and much more.

Before you book for Tokyo Disney Resort, avoid these dates…

Tokyo Disneyland is always busy, but some days are busier!

Tokyo Disneyland is always busy, but some days are busier!

When is it busy at Tokyo Disneyland?

Public Holidays and Weekends – if you have the option of avoiding Japanese public holidays and weekends, do. They will usually be busier than weekdays.

29 April to early May – Golden week. This is a week containing 4 separate public holidays and is a very busy time at Tokyo Disneyland.

Tokyo Disney Resort entrance queues

What group members say…

March can also be a hard time to book and prices will be higher because cherry blossoms and spring break.
Early April is usually spring break for both the American schools here (surprisingly there are a lot) and Japanese schools. It’s not the worst time but it will be busy.
Most days in October will be crowded, weekdays included. Though weekdays tend to be slightly less crowded. For the most part Sept 15th- October will be busy since it’s Halloween season.
Sept 15 through just after new years is usually fairly busy and the Disney hotels tend to book up. That’s the start of Halloween then moving into Christmas and then New Years is a big deal in Japan. Right between the end of Halloween and beginning of Christmas can be a tad slower as they transition decorations but for the most part, those few months can book fast. – Megan

When is the best weather at Tokyo Disney?

October is very nice weather. Not too cold or hot. Tshirt/light jumper weather.
February is very cold but fine – jackets and gloves weather.

What group members say…

August is so hot and humid!!! – Group member

I like autumn. November has nice weather, not so hot and not so cold. Christmas decorations start around the 2nd week of Nov I believe – Jane

Premier Access and Priority Pass fast passes

If you need to visit during busy times it can be a great advantage to make use of the new Priority Pass ride queue skipping lane or buy Premier Access fast passes for rides like the incredibly popular Beauty and the Beast ride. You can only book these once you’ve entered the parks.

Here’s a quick video to show you how to scan your Premier Access pass after you’ve purchased it on the App. You can see a Premier Access pass price list here.

Where can I book Tokyo Disney Resort Hotel rooms?

You can book official Tokyo Disneyland Hotels on the official Tokyo Disneyland website or through a travel agent – but they don’t get any earlier access than you would booking for yourself.

Let’s start with what we know – the information found on the official Tokyo Disney website regarding official hotel bookings…

From the official Tokyo Disney Resort website:

“Hotel reservations can be made from *11:00 a.m. (*Tokyo, Japan time) on the day three months before your stay.”
“…you can make a reservation from 11:00 a.m. on the 1st of the following month. (Example: For July 31 check-in date, reservations are accepted from 11:00 a.m., May 1.)”

How do I book Tokyo Disneyland Hotels for New Year’s Eve?

It’s possible that the parks may close early on NYE like previous years (around 9pm).

From the official Tokyo Disney Resort website:

“Reservations for stays on December 31, 2023 and/or January 1, 2024 will be accepted from 11:00 a.m. on October 1, 2023. (Reservations for one night on either December 31 or January 1 are also accepted.)”

How many nights can I book at Tokyo Disney Hotels?

From the official Tokyo Disney Resort website:

“Up to five nights and three rooms can be booked at the same time.”

This is the extent of the official Tokyo Disney booking website information regarding bookings.

Now here are our Tokyo Disneyland Group member’s actual experiences & recommendations

Be prepared to book quickly!

What group members say…

What I found worked was to already be logged in and have a booking selected already for the day before so all the particulars are already selected such as # nights, # rooms, # adults and children etc then at the right time refresh the page and choose the new date that you want – Rachel 

We are family of 5 and just booked for Disneyland hotel for November – the rooms go super fast (within 4 minutes). I did a few practice bookings to get familiar with the systems and room types etc. Logged on before 11am, made sure I was logged in to my Disney account and clicked through to booking. Hit refresh at bang on 11:00am. We got our first choices, 3 nights in corner room park view in Disneyland and then 1 at Toy Story to experience the theming x – Group member

Just don’t give up. As many have said just keep refreshing. I would agree log on 10 mins before. Even do a search for the last available date with your adult/child info, select the exact hotel and search. Then at 11am, refresh the page and just change the date only.

I believe they either release more or people are just not completing the book or canceling. I accidentally clicked the wrong room type at Toy Story then mistakenly clicked back and everything was gone. At 11:40am quite a few popped up and I got the one I wanted. A tad stressful but I just clicked refreshed literally every minute & was worth it to get what I wanted.

Good luck! Hope you get it. Just say on it and make sure you know exactly what room type you want so you can click immediately. – Tiffany

Tokyo Disney hotels bed-share rules

What group members say…

“We’re a fam of 5 and staying at Toy Story and Disneyland hotel.
You can bed share if you have a child under 11. Ours are 7/5/3 and I’ll probably share with the 3yo or we’ll have the 5yo and 3yo go together.”- Group member

How do I book Disney Toy Story Hotel rooms?

What group members say…

We booked the toy story hotel (Says booking opens tokyo time, so remember that when booking too), but when we went to book we thought we’d missed everything cos there were only a few left. We ended up refreshing the page a few times and maybe 10 mins later what we wanted came up. Also what we saw on the comp and phone were different 🤷‍♀️ –Miranda 

Toy Story Hotel partial view, square view & bay view rooms

What group members say…

…I have successfully booked Toy story hotel for stay on 31st Oct. I have logged in 10 minutes earlier to get ready, and you really need to refresh at 11am sharp to book the rooms. Within 1 min, partial view and square view were totally sold out. I was lucky to get bay view as I had chose standard view initially. So my advice is 3 months before your intended date, log in earlier and refresh exactly at 11am. I know it sounds crazy, but it works for me. Good luck to all! 😘 – Miki

Multiple date booking problems

What group members say…

(About not being able to book more than two nights) You will have to pick another room at that hotel if available or a room at a different Disney hotel that has rooms available. It’s very unlikely you would be able to stay in the same room. It’s just saying about choosing the room for the other night to let you know you can do it all in one booking, even if it’s a room at another Disney hotel – Group member

How far in advance you can book Tokyo Disney Hotels?

What group members say…

A lot of hotels here will only let you book 3-6 months out. The Disney ones for example are 3 months out and even before covid it was only 6 months out as the max. – Megan

When can I book Tokyo Disney Hotels for Christmas Day?

According to the official website two months prior booking rule, you will be able to attempt to book Christmas Day Tokyo Disney Hotels accommodation on 26th October. I would do a practice run on the 25th of October 11am Tokyo time just to be on the safe side!

About staying at multiple Disney hotels

What group members say…

We recently did a stay with three different Disney hotels. All were on the same booking which made it super easy and they moved our luggage for us so we could still utilize the happy 15. – Megan

Tokyo DisneySea

Can I use Visa to book?

What group members say…

I ended up having to make 2 bookings, the first I did on computer and the second I did on my phone and both worked with no issues, and I used Visa too – Rachel

What if my Credit Card doesn’t work on the Tokyo Disney website?

Contact your credit card company- they may not be allowing the transaction as suspicious.

What if I can’t get the dates or booking I want? Hotel cancellations

You are allowed to phone on the day to check for cancellations by phone.

What group members say…

You could keep checking as people do cancel sometimes. And you can always ask at check in just in case. It’s not impossible but they may be able to accommodate a change at check in. – Megan

Tokyo Disney hotels early check in/luggage

You can drop your bags off at reception in the morning of check in day and leave your bags at the hotel while you go to the park on check out day. There are also large lockers for hire at both Tokyo and Mahaima Stations (TDL Station).

Do I need to book breakfast at Tokyo Disney Resort hotels?

Yes, make your breakfast reservations as soon as possible to avoid missing out.

What group members say…

For the hotel breakfast make sure you secure your reservations. The pre park opening timings go quickly and months in advance. – Alison

We did quick breakfast Starbucks and then food in the park so we didn’t waste time. – Catherine

What group members say…

Priority pass are the free fast passes they are doing for the 40th anniversary. There are only certain rides you can get them for. I believe you can get a second one after you use the first or two hours, whichever is sooner.

Premier access are the paid fast passes. They are paid per person per ride and are single use. You can purchase as many as you like as long as they are available. Those you can get the next one after the first one is used or after one hour, whichever is sooner. There are only a select few rides at each park that these can be used on.

Entry request is the lottery for shows. You get one chance for each show each day. If you don’t win the lottery you don’t get the show, unless you go to one of the first come first served viewings. Though I don’t believe you get assigned seats and will have a specific seating area (and keep in mind some people line up an hour or more before that showing to get a seat). Also, not all shows/showing will have the first come first served viewings.

Standby pass is for when they are trying to reduce the number of people in each shop or restaurant at a time. Typically those are only needed when new merchandise comes out. They are free and you request it on the app. You will get a time slot that you can enter the shop or restaurant and all persons in your party need to be there at the same time. If you miss you time you miss out on that shop/restaurant. – Megan

Hotel Miracosta at Tokyo DisneySea

Tokyo Disney Resort Hotel Miracosta

What group members say…

Mira costa is the only one (hotel)  in the park but Disneyland hotel is literally right in front of land’s entrance.

Ambassador and Toy Story are both quick monorail rides from the park and have easy access, just a little longer to get to from the parks.

Celebration is the farthest and will take about 15-20 minutes to get to and from once on the bus.

MiraCosta is located in DisneySea. – Megan

Tokyo Disney Resort Disneyland Hotel

How do I contact the Tokyo Disney Resort Disneyland Hotel?

You can attempt to phone, however unless you speak Japanese there are reports of translator issues or being caught in a Japanese recording loop. I have phoned the Disney Celebration Hotel number about an upcoming booking and there was a translator contacted to assist. It took around ten minutes to contact the translator and there were some difficulties being understood even then.

Disney Resort Ambassador Hotel

What group members say…

We stayed at the Ambassador, it had the free bus to the park, we did Disney monorail instead short walk to that and its cafes. Steps outside hotel there was Disney store and lots of retail shops and restaurants ideal for evening if didn’t want hotel food. Ambassador is old style American not crazy themed but I liked that as we’re not crazy on themed rooms. – Catherine

Tokyo Disney Resort Ambassador versus Toy Story hotel

What group members say…

Ambassador has more traditional Mickey/Minnie theming whereas toy story is as the name suggests, themed like the movie. Ambassador has the only meet and greet character restaurant and is near a collection of shops and restaurants which are separate to the park (if you want a break from hotel restaurants). Toy Story is a relatively new hotel and (I believe) is cheaper – Lucienne

Tokyo Disney Resort Toy Story Hotel

What group members say…

They have a store with Toy Story hotel exclusive merch, one side is more woody themed and one side is more buzz themed in the elevator entry areas.

There is coin operated laundries available.

The only dining on site is lotso garden cafe which needs a booking and does a buffet for breakfast and offers dinner also I believe.

There was a convenience store in the hotel which was awesome to grab drinks and snacks at a good price.

You only get happy entry to Disneyland (15 mins early) not Disney sea.

All the displays being brand new look great and you only get access to the grounds if you stay there. There is stuff at the front of the hotel and within the hotel.

Rooms are a bit small and not very deluxe feeling but as a place to crash after being out all day it serves its purpose! – Group member

What is Disney Celebration Hotel like?

The budget hotel. You need to catch a free 15 minute shuttle bus for this hotel to reach the parks. Luggage delivery to and from the station is not offered.

Disney Celebration hotel has themed rooms - on a budget!

Disney Celebration hotel has themed rooms – on a budget!

…It’s cheap, guaranteed tickets, happy 15 for land, and the *conbini (*Japanese convenience store) is a decent size. We don’t mind the bus ride. – Megan

More non-Disney Hotels near Disneyland general experiences

Hilton Tokyo Bay hotel

Hilton isn’t far, it has a stop on the monorail loop. It’s kinda in between Mira Costa and Disneyland hotel. – Megan

We are currently staying at the Hilton Tokyo Bay. We … booked the Happy Magic room. Room size is great for our family.

Few things we learned…

1-Hotel charges 4000 yen for pool use per person. Only accepts reservations and may be booked.

2-Our stay included breakfast but when we got here they said kids were not included unless we booked them as adults when making our initial reservation🤷🏼‍♀️ About $75usd extra per day for the kids to eat

3-Breakfast buffet is good but the food is the same every day

4- The hotel shuttle does not take you to the theme parks. It only takes you to the Bayside station and from there you need to take the monorail to the parks. The station is less than a 10 minute walk from the hotel.

5-You cannot purchase park tickets at the hotel or at the parks. You need to purchase them online

the hotel is very nice! – Group member

Can highly recommend Hilton Tokyo Bay (which I believe is next door to the Toy Story hotel & easy monorail to parks). I booked ages in advance after signing up for Hilton Honours, and got it at about 40% off during one of their members only pre sales (not sure if they’re still doing these post Covid tho).
TS wasn’t built on our previous visits but from what I can see is incredibly hard to get. – Group member

Sheraton Tokyo Bay

We are at Sheraton Tokyo Bay a neighbour hotel and no food other than hotel it’s been our biggest issue – Karen

We will be doing 2+2 days at land and sea next month.🎉we found the Disney hotels a bit pricey so have chosen Sheridan Tokyo Bay as it has family room is on monorail system and the 15 mins early entry Disney officer is a joke. 🤞all goes well – Karen


Grand Nikki Tokyo Bay

We were there in August
Great rooms
Great breakfast
Métro not far at ALL
A bad thing : thé swimming pool is extra cost and kids were not allowed ALL day 😢

easy by métro !! Not far – It is just in front the hôtel – – Group member

Yes, I stayed there last Nov. Large room, very specious. The breakfast line can be very long though. The check-in can be long as well. Then you can leave the bags with bell captain so that you can go out and enjoy the park or shop at Inspiraki. – Jane

Oriental Hotel Tokyo Bay

Oriental Hotel Tokyo Bay is a Disney partner hotel with several shuttles running to disneyland and disneysea. Also, if you take the Limousine Bus from Haneda airport it will drop you directly in front of the hotel. I arrived at the airport at night around 9pm. The JR Shin Urayasu station is also directly connected to the hotel with aging but sufficient malls within walking distance. There is also a convenience store right in the hotel. Getting to Narita airport from the hotel though is a different story. I had to take the free Disney shuttle to Disneyland in order to hop on a Limousine Bus from there. But it was easy and I could take my luggage with me. – Group member

Hyatt regency at Tokyo bay

Hyatt regency at Tokyo bay – we stayed there this week with our 3 kids and we love it! They have a bus to take you Disneyland or Disney sea. Shops are close by and a big shopping mall as well in case you want to do a bit of shopping in a more quiet area.
My daughter was really sick one night, the hotel staff were super helpful as an ambulance was called as well.
I highly recommended for families – Group member

We stayed at the imperial hotel (Imperial Hotel Tokyo) and took the train to Disney. We’re going again in 2025, and will probably stay in central Tokyo and take the train again. I hate moving hotels…..and it is such a waste of time. Hop in the train, it’s pretty easy – Group member.
