We stayed here for 3 nights while visiting Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo Disney Sea. The rates for the hotel, while expensive, are much better value than those of the Disney owned hotels and are a very easy commute to the parks. We found the staff to be courteous and helpful and there always seemed to be someone close at hand who spoke English. We found Joseph, one of the doormen, to be particularly helpful and friendly.
The resort is easily reached via limousine bus. It took us about 30 min from Haneda, and outbound, it was about an hour to Narita. One tip: if going to Narita from the hotel, book your seat on the bus several days early if possible. This bus services all of the Disney area hotels and can fill completely. There are only a limited number of buses departing each day. We booked our seat on the day we arrived.
Our room was very spacious, even by Western standards and we found it to be very well maintained and immaculate. We had a lovely view of Tokyo Bay and the hotel gardens. The beds were very comfortable, and I was delighted to have a coffee pot at my disposal (I found this a rarity during our 2 weeks in Japan). All of the usual amenities were supplied and replaced daily. I was delighted to find that one of the TV stations carried American TV programs (in English with Japanese subtitles) in the evening.
Check in was easy, but our room was not ready (it was only noon) so we stored our bags and went to one of the parks for the day. We were delighted to find our bags already in our room when we returned later in the evening.
There is a shuttle bus that will take you the short distance to the monorail if you wish. There is also a shuttle which goes to the JR train station/Ikspiari shopping complex on the weekend. The parks are reached by monorail, which has a fee. We found the best value for us was to buy the 3 day pass.
We chose to eat all of our meals in the park, so did not experience any of the restaurants in the hotel. We did, however, make a point of getting coffee and pastries every morning from Toastina in the lobby. The croissants were indescribably flaky and delicious.
I highly recommend this hotel for anyone thinking of spending a few days in the Disney parks.
