Tokyo Disneyland, Urayasu

  • We arrived during the Christmas period so the pageant was in full swing. This is truly an amazing place and, despite the crowds (typical of anything Disney), Tokyo put on a brilliant show. Organised w...  more »
  • This was our first ever Disneyland experience and we both enjoyed it thoroughly. We had a day pass and spent about 8 hours but you would need to spend more time there if you wanted to see everything.  more »
  • Tokyo Disneyland very closely resembles the Magic Kingdom in Orlando - from the layout of the park to the rides. There are some unique features which are nice, but if you like the Magic Kingdom in Orl...  more »
  • Amazing. One of the nicest Disney parks we have ever been to. Super clean, friendly cast members and a great time every time we have visited. If you have been to another Disney Park you know the customer experience is at the forefront of the Disney model, Tokyo Disney meets this in every way. Despite being in Japan, most of the signs are also in English as are the menus, guides and such. Every cast member spoke English. This park has everything you would expect, from Space Mountain to Its a Small World. The food is great, the rides wonderful and all around a great time. A must visit in Japan.
  • Tokyo Disneyland is an amazing place where you could easily spend your whole day. The park is clean and the staff are very helpful and welcoming. It is better to go at weekdays rather than weekends, because the wait times for the rides will be a lot shorter and there will be more free space to view the awesome parades.
  • The happiest place on earth! Check the crowd calendar and weather forecast before going there. Better buy ticket at 7-11 a day before to minimize the queue. Go earlier and take as many fast pass tickets as you can. Then enjoy parade or other attractions that have short waiting time before get in to fastpass-attraction time. Bring water or foods for your kids to prevent them cranky.
  • The happiest place on earth. Me and my family visited Tokyo Disneyland. My wife and two kids, we had high expectations and we where not disappointed. What really makes this Disneyland great is the people. The Japanese people where very polite, helpful, and had a lot of pride. The right kind of pride! We even lost something that we did not expect to get back due to its not that valuable. But we did try to go to the lost and found although our item was not found that night we where going to Disney sea the next day. We where informed to ask about the item the next day. And as expected they found the item and will be shipped to my country free of charge. The only thanks i can give is to tell my good experience in their park and the hope of going back their soon.
  • Disneyland is mainly for families with kids or for Disney fanatics, rather for the great rides. It is more about the atmosphere and the parades, but there is something here for almost everyone. We went there with my nephew, and he had a great time. Personally I would rather go to DinsneySea (based on the reviews). Nevertheless, the first thing you should do at arrival, is to get a fast pass to the most popular ride, before you go to ones with a shorter standby queue (read the instructions on your printed ticket). This will reduce the time spent in queues, which sometimes can be rather extreme (Monster Inc. had 80 min standby queue around 4 pm Friday April 21). Are you up for some of the better rides, be sure to experience: 1. Star Tours - my favourite ride is a 3D flight-motion simulator in the Star Wars world, and it also has some cool robots that will help you overcome the time spent in the queue to the simulators. 2. Space Mountain - a roller coaster inside a pitch-dark building was a brand new experience for me. It is not in it self a great roller coaster, but the fact that you hardly see anything for a big part of the ride, makes it quite exciting. 3. Big Thunder Mountain - a more traditional roller coaster, which my five year old nephew also attended. 4. Splash Mountain - a log flume ride, which seems like a good ride, if you don't mind getting your hair wet. Unfortunately they had some technical problems just before we were to enter, so we could not ride it. There are lot of restaurants and shops, and a lot of activities. It is truly difficult to experience everything in a full day. All in all a great place to spend with smaller kids, but adrenalin junkies should look somewhere else.

Where to stay in Urayasu

Visitors to Urayasu are usually heading to the theme park, which itself offers a number of hotels within its expansive grounds, with some fairly standard options sitting alongside showstopping luxury accommodations.
