Secrets to the Magic in Tokyo Disneyland and Disney Sea

Secrets to the Magic in Tokyo Disneyland and  Disney Sea

Are you a Disney fan? Me, too! So, I’m delighted to share a few secrets.

1. Enter the parks past 6 p.m. and you get a discount!
2. Can you prove you’re over 60 with an ID? You get a reduced rate!
3. Have kidlets under 3? They are in for free!
4. From 3 p.m. on Saturdays, Sundays and National Holidays, tickets are also discounted.
5. Enjoy rides during “regular” meal hours. Eat at off hours.

Want to meet the characters?

1. Sip afternoon tea at the Dreamer’s Lounge at the Tokyo Disneyland Hotel.
2. Enter the Crystal Palace. Breakfast with Winnie the Pooh and his pals.
3. Say Aloha to Lilo and Stitch at the Polynesian Terrace Restaurant’s luau.
4. Mickey and Minnie apparently hang out at Disney Sea’s Horizon Bay Restaurant.
5. Hang out at the park entrances. Better yet, ask:


Even better, make reservations at Adventureland’s Crystal Palace or the Polynesian Terrace. Or see about booking seats at Disney Sea’s Horizon Bay Restaurant. Surprisingly, reservations can still only be made in Japanese. Maybe you’ll be the exception. At any rate, now is a good time to ask for assistance from your Japanese friends.

Priority seating at restaurants including the Dreamer’s Lounge at the Tokyo Disneyland Hotel is here. See
this link for the Lilo Luau.

Good news: There is info in English about where to spot Disney characters in Tokyo Disneyland and Disney Sea. Also, you can download maps in English of the parks here. The rides and the shows are in Japanese. However, with all the bright colors and cheery dancing, you’ll still feel the embrace of Disney magic. For vacation packages, resort hotel reservations and tickets, Tokyo Disney is all set up in English. Here’s the link.

No matter the language the Happiest Places on Earth always seem to contain Disney magic.


Wishing you Disney magic in Japan.
