This was our first time staying on site at a Disney hotel in Japan and it was wonderful. From the moment you get off at Maihama station, you could feel Disney in air. Music was playing and people were just having an overall awesome time.
We arrived on the later side, so there wasn't much of a crowd. Check in was pretty fast taking less than 5 minutes with the clerk giving us our room keys, our 15 minute early entrance ticket and also free rail passes for our stay. Typically, there would be no early entrance into the park and you would have to pay for the rail passes. There were a very nice bonus...see below for a little more info:
• 15min Early Entrance Ticket = This will get you into the park early, but only up until Main Street. It really isn't like Anaheim where you actually get to start riding rides earlier than other people. Most guest took advantage of the 15min to take pictures in front the displays without much of a crowd.
• Complimentary Disney Resort Line Pass = Each landmark at Disneyland is not exactly close to each other. You can walk from location to location, but it might take a little bit. To connect all these places, there is a monorail / train that stops at each station. You can buy an All Day ticket (that expires at midnight...no matter if you purchased it in the day or night) or individual tickets from location to location. Depending on how many times you plan to go back and forth, an all day pass is usually more ideal if you go on it at least 3 times within that day. But by staying at a Disney hotel, we were given complimentary passes. The Resort Line connects the following four (4) stations:
o Resort Gateway (Disney Ambassador Hotel, Ikspiari)
o Disneyland Tokyo (Tokyo Disneyland, Tokyo Disneyland Hotel)
o Bayside Station
o Tokyo DisneySea
The hotel itself was so quaint! As soon as you walk in, you felt like you were at Disney. We were also extremely lucky in that upon our check in, they had upgraded us to a larger room that could fit a family of 6 (there was only 2 of us). We never really figured out why we got upgraded, but we weren't going to complain. The room was huge...even larger than a standard room at the Wynn Las Vegas or Venetian. You can see for yourself in the pictures. The room had 3 beds plus a sofa bed, cotton PJ and a bunch of toiletries. However oddly enough, there was no Internet (complimentary or paid).
On a side note, it really was the happiest place on earth ... no really. The cast members there were really happy to be there. Even if they secretly hated working there, you would never know. Unlike other Disney locations, every single person seems to genuinely like being there.
