Disney Tokyo: Tips and Tricks for a Family Trip

Disney Tokyo is a completely new adventure!

Disney Tokyo awaits you, but these tips will be your lifesaver! Don't be surprised because this park is a favorite among adult visitors, especially couples. It just goes to show that everyone loves Disney!

At Disney Tokyo, you'll discover two incredible parks: Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea. Of course, you should visit both! Now, let's dive into the tips:

Buy your tickets in advance!

While it might sound like the most basic tip ever, it's essential: buy your tickets in advance to maximize your day. Trust us, the lines can be massive if you wait to buy them on the same day! I mean, waiting one hour to experience a fun ride is already meh, now imagine this only to get your park ticket?

Arrive early

The lines to enter the park are absolutely crazy and trust us, you'll want to arrive 60-90 minutes before the park opens on a weekday. If you're planning to visit on a weekend or a holiday, it's best to arrive at least two hours before opening. Sounds excessive? Welcome to the reality of Tokyo, which is the most populated city in the world!

Busy dates to avoid!

  • School break (March-early April)
  • Golden Week (late April-early May)
  • Obon Week (mid-August
  • New Year (late December-early January)

Download the apps

Disney didn't create these apps just for fun... they're genuine game-changers! Having these apps on hand will save you time and keep you informed about unexpected news, like ride closures and weather updates. Trust us, they're essential for a smooth Disney experience.

One thing to keep in mind is that these two are in Japanese, but if you don’t speak that, you can always use the Official Disney App, and it will give the same information.

Disney Premier Access

Since the pandemic, FastPasses have disappeared in Tokyo, and now the only option available is to purchase Premier Access, essentially a paid fast pass. These passes come in limited quantities per ride and can only be bought on the official website.

Now you are ready to plan your next adventure to The Happiest Place in Asia and, of course, with the help of Famvia! If you have any more questions, feel free to approach us and send us a message. We would be happy to lend you a hand, and we swear that we reply as soon as possible. Until the next on!
