When in the year to visit?

Tokyo Disneyland is famous for celebrating seasonal events and festivities. Currently, Disney Easter 2019 which began on April 4, 2019 will run until June 2, 2019. After that, Tanabata Days runs from June 6 through July 7, 2019. That’s followed by the big new event, Donald’s Hot Jungle Summer, running from July 9 through September 1, 2019. There will also be a Halloween and Christmas event later on in the year. In 2020, Tokyo will be hosting the summer Olympics (which will occur from July 24, 2020 until August 9, 2020) and there is sure to be a special festival lined up in Disneyland resort too, although be sure to expect many foreign tourists to be joining in the celebrations as well. The park is also adding a Beauty and the Beast land and a special themed 8 minute long ride (Enchanted Tale of Beauty and the Beast) in 2020 (slated for May) so look out for that!

When in the year to NOT visit?

At all costs, avoid the Golden Week as this is the time when Japan has a long stretch of public holidays and many working parents take the chance to bring their children to the park. It will be incredibly crowded with thousands of locals.

Which day to visit?

Tokyo Disneyland are least busy Monday through Thursday. Friday is the busiest weekday, and weekends are incredibly busy. Avoid weekends no matter what time of year you visit. This will save you considerable time in lines.

Where to buy tickets?

If you are going on weekdays during a non-holiday season, the simplest and most direct option is simply purchasing your park tickets on the day itself at the ticket booths in front of Tokyo Disneyland. If you want to save a bit of money and buy tickets before leaving Singapore, we suggest checking out tickets on Klook. Their tickets discounted and easy to pick up at Narita and Haneda Airport.

What to eat?

Tokyo Disneyland is well-known for their innovative and delicious snacks on offer. Head over to Adventureland and try the Pork-Rice Ball with Fried Egg. It’s truly yummy and sure to fill your hungry tummies. There’s also a Pork and Teriyaki Chicken Steamed Mickey Mouse Bun and the Peach and Lemon Mickey Tapioca Drink. Both are based on traditional Japanese snacks and drinks and are sure to delight. If you’re looking for counter service, The Queen of Hearts Banquet Hall is arguably the coolest restaurant at Tokyo Disney Resort. If you’re looking for something heavier, head over to Crystal Palace. Crystal Palace is a buffet restaurant in Tokyo Disneyland and the menu is an international mix, with plenty of conventional choices and also a lot of seafood.

Attractions Strategy

Monsters, Inc. Ride & Go Seek – get a FastPass here first thing in the morning

Pooh’s Hunny Hunt – take this as your first ride of the day

Peter Pan’s Flight – take this as your second ride of the day.

Other attractions that you can’t miss include Space Mountain, Splash Mountain, Haunted Mansion, It’s a small world, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad plus the ever popular Pirates of the Caribbean.

After you use the Monsters Inc FastPass, you can get another one for either Space Mountain or Haunted Mansion (Haunted Mansion is usually the last attraction to run out of FastPass)

Interesting shows that you should check out in the afternoons are Country Bear Jamboree and The Enchanted Tiki Room: Stitch Presents “Aloha E Komo Mai!”

Nightly fireworks displays here are excellent so be prepared to get a good viewing spot at least 45 minutes before the show starts. Good news is that the crowds are usually well-behaved and there will not be any pushing or shoving to get good spots. Dreamlights which is the nighttime character light parade is an excellent attraction in its own right and you shouldn’t miss it.

Things to bring?

Autograph book for character signings, water bottle to keep you hydrated, power banks to charge your phones and cameras, ponchos in case of wet weather, sunscreen if you’re visiting in the summer, towels to dry off after Splash Mountain, wet wipes, hand sanitizers. You should wear comfortable footwear and a hat as well.

How to get to Tokyo Disneyland?

You can get here by taking the train to Maihama Station, exiting the train station and then taking the Disney Monorail to the Tokyo Disneyland Park Station. You can use the SUICA card for Disney Monorail too or you can purchase a new ticket at the counter. See the Google Maps embedded below for the detailed address and for planning your route from your hotel.
