Anyone book Disneyland Hotel before in Tokyo?

Just want to understand more about their cancellation policy.

I was about to book and they say



So if I book now for December, and I cancel it maybe in October it is 0 fees incurred?


Also.. issit worth to book their vacation package? Or better to book hotel + other stuffs separately? Was planning to go for 3 days 2 nights.

I was looking to stay at the Chip and Dale room, total cost amounted to 2.7k-2.8k for 3d2n for the package.

If without package was 1.4k.

3 days ticket for 2, and maybe 1 day breakfast, i can't see it amounting to an additional 1.4k...

By right, no cancellation fee if you cancel 15 days before stay but depending on the exchange rates at the point of booking and at the point of refund, you may have to bear exchange loss.

The Vacation Packages includes other stuffs like Resort Line Pass for some hotels, selected gifts and Popcorn bucket that cannot be purchased separately and free drinks at selected eateries. It should also include some FreePass on top of what you can collect in the park. You need to see if you value these stuffs at the extra price you would have paid as compared to getting the room, park tickets and breakfast separately.

This is most likely the case. As far as I read before, they do limit the number of Vacation Packages.

I am not sure if it works in Tokyo Disney Resort but you can try writing or calling in to ask. Both Hong Kong and Paris Disney Resorts were flexible about requests that are not available online. Otherwise, you might want to explore other rooms. It is not too wise to book late as the breakfast slots can be another issue, either odd timings or no slot available.

Thanks man. I was trying to find a contact us via email function for tokyo disneyland but only found phone number.

i'm still trying to decide vacation package is better or booking separately.. twice the price for maybe a bit more convenience..

the 3 day magic passport (i assume doesn't come with Fast Pass) cost 240SGD. For 2 person 480. Remaining 900 for 2 days breakfast.. Fast Pass.. wah.... damn expensive... lol.

I trying to finalize everything by maybe this week.

oo thanks for this info man!

Also, would you enlighten me on how this fast pass work? I read online and somewhat different from our USS fast pass where got like priority queue.

Read online on tripadvisor some people say like

So work the "fastpass" ticket system in the morning, and then use the fast passes that are in your vacation package for the afternoon for the rides that you weren't able to get a regular fastpass for, or for the other park in the afternoon.


Does it mean regular entry ticket you also can go to a machine and get fast pass?

If so, then the vacation package's fast pass is essentially just a "confirm have fast pass"?

Fastpass is like priority queue tickets that you can prebook. Once you get it, it will show the time slot that you can come back again and enter under priority queue. Usually you need to wait for 2 hours before you can get fastpass for another ride so need to properly plan your route.

Vacation package will give you fast passes in advance and if I am not wrong, you can choose 2-3 rides or 2 rides + 1 show.

There should be an online form under Contact Us. I just checked my old emails to confirm that I use that mode to clarify its Bedsharing policy as its website self-contradict the info.

Try to search around. Alternatively, check the Japanese website using Google Chrome with transalation.

I tried something similiar before. Instead of reversal, the merchant did a refund and recharge the correct amount. Bank took a few days to get back that they will refund on an one-off goodwill basis.

It is a priority queue but unlike Universal Studio, you do not pay for it.

For those where you get from the machine by scanning your park tickets, you go to the FastPass queue during the one hour period indicated on the FastPass. The timing where you can collect the next FastPass will be indicated on the FastPass too, not more than 2h apart. The problem with these FastPasses is that they are on a while stock last basis.

The FastPasses included in the Vacation Package are definitely yours and you can use it anytime during the validity period of the Vacation Package. You can strategise to use them on the more popular rides during the peak period while you get the regular FastPass for the less popular ones. In this way, you will find yourself queueing less often.

Do note that Toy Story Mania needs a special FastPass under the Vacation Package and such packages are more expensive. The regular ones are usually completely distributed by 10 and the queues for them are scary even on a non-peak day.

super thanks man for your quickly reply. understand more now.

actually seeing all these and the things included in the vacation package... i think i book separately better. the special gifts included in the vacation package don't seem to be much value to me. perhaps the only plus is the included fast pass tickets which...maybe for me it'll be safe to skip..the extra 1.4k is really too much man. can save few hundred if buy separately.

Booking rooms separately also means i can select different rooms to stay on those 2 days.

I seem to remember reading somewhere they will bring your luggage to the next hotel for you if within the Disney resort though. If true then morning go eat breakfast bring luggage down eat finish go disneyland come back go next hotel seems ok.

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.
