I took yamanote line most of the time
Yamanote alone is quite slow. If you take the Chuo rapid between Shinjuku and Kanda/Tokyo stations, you can cut down quite a bit of time.

I'm staying at Tokyu Stay Shinjuku which is at Shinjuku 3chome.

Hotel just opened in 2015 and it's pretty well equipped with a washer / dryer and a trouser press. Would recommend this hotel for those wanting to stay in this area.

Stayed for 6 nights and I took the metro around 80% of the time.
By looking at it... Most of the hotels rate are all about $180-200 per night....

if you buy the package with the Disney Ambassador Hotel, you will get fast passes etc... the normal passes don't come with those if I remember correctly.

and do buy the passes before going to disneyland/sea. you can easily buy them at convenience stores. they sometimes hit the daily quota and ask you to go home if you try to buy at disneyland/disneysea itself.

It probably depends on your dates. I paid 88,600 for 6 nights for 2 pax. Checking out in 30 mins.

Consider Toyoko Inn or similar chains ;
reasonable rate / near JR stations / bonus / early bookings. Very useful who travel to Japan frequently . Some may say 'boring' hotel but I rarely stay in room more than 8-9 hours a day.

Not sure about your budget, if you want to experience some traditional ryokanish hotel, this one seems good:

If we get the normal visit pass for DisneySEA ... Will the queue be very long?

Still considering to get the vacation package which consists of 1 night hotel stay & 2 days visit fast pass... Is it recommended to purchase this way? Traveling on end Oct.

In Japan, got 4 people means must buy 4 people hotel room (or 2x 2 ppl room). It's not like other countries that can do hand leg and cram 4 ppl in one room.

Also, business hotels (i.e. reasonably priced ones) practically all have super small beds. Some examples (these are two ppl room)




For JR Pass, if you are flying open jaw (i.e. fly into Tokyo, fly out of Osaka) then no need. If you are flying and departing same city and doing shinkansen both ways then can buy.
