Oh I see. Whatever suits you I booked 3 different rooms in MiraCosta facing the Harbor back then. SO preferred to have the same room instead so we requested to have the most expensive one that I booked during check-in.
Yeah found this on the FAQ page

On the day of your room change, please leave your packed bags together in the room and give your room key to the front desk when you go out for the day.

A Cast Member at the hotel will transfer your baggage to your new room.

- Further details will be provided when you check in.
- A Cast Member at the hotel will transfer your baggage for you, even if you are moving to a different building at the Tokyo Disney Celebration Hotel.


I just hooted 1 night chip and dale at ambassador 1 night at disney hotel alice in wonderland.

Booked for 9th-11December Monday to Wednesday.

Arriving at Haneda airport at 9:50 then go straight to disneysea 1st day.

Start on Monday hopefully less crowded... no need squeeze with Japan students..

Dont forget to download the official disney app. I think it is only searchable once you're in JP. Features useful wait times, delays, etc. If it's your first time there, it's even more useful as the live location is quite accurate.

Tue to Thurs is a better option actually. Fri and Mon usually have more people due to people starting the week early or extending their weekend. There is a page to check the expected crowd level at the parks. Let me find it to share here.

To add on, the Japanese school do bring the students on excursion to the theme parks.

I think it is not dependent on where you are but which country your app store is linked to.

There are unofficial ones available to us in the app store but somehow they cannot last more than a year. Just download one when the date draws nearer.

Yup. Iíve been there on Mondays before. Crazy crowds too. Think now might be worse since thereís more foreign tourists in the parks compared to 10 years ago.

Think no matter what sure have crowd la. but i'm sure Monday beats Sunday. Anyway Monday first day there. Most likely will just enjoy some shows and walk around. 2+AM flight arrive at going to 10am.

But yah after some online research seems like you're right. Tues to Thurs is best option. aiya. i already book my flight liao. sian.

Edit: Bluetwinkle, think you referring to this site right. http://www15.plala.or.jp/gcap/disney/

yah monday seems like a bit busy still on most monday. siannnn should have gone tuesday then.

Yes. This is the site I am referring to. For the past 2 years, I have visited on the week you are going or after.

Pretty accurate in my opinion as I do use app to check the wait times for queue and the Fridays following my visit had longer wait times.

unless peak season, should be ok.

some tips, if u can eat at magellan's (lunch usually cheaper).request for the "secret" room.

disney sea hottest rides: toy story mania, tower of terror, and the latest "soaring".

Disneyland hottest rides: pooh honey hunt, monster inc,

The rest of the rides should have no problem with fast passes.

Haha. You need to change your room booking first. The flight is ok. Just overnight somewhere first. Red eye flights can be tiring.

Honestly, Pooh's Hunny Hunt in Tokyo Disneyland is overrated and FastPass runs out relatively fast. It is probably popular for kids who may have limited rides. If one has tried the one in Hong Kong Disneyland, it is worth giving it a miss. Even if one can get a FastPass, one might want use the FastPass chance on something else.

Yea..maybe just stay a random place on Monday then. Was thinking to move less times the luggage. But guess if wanna get better experience in disney land should try to arrive earlier in the morning.

ideally, you should be at the gates 1hr before the opening time, rush for the FP at the most popular ride, and go ride the next popular ride.

then slowly take your time to enjoy the rest of the park
