    DisneySea - Enjoyable as Always
    This is the only DisneySea in the world, with all attractions centred around the theme of the sea and oceans. We last visited this attraction (and the Tokyo Disneyland next door) in 2008 when we stayed onsite in a hotel for 4 days with 2 small children (who tired very easily and couldn’t enter most attractions given their height). It’s a different experience as an adult, and travelling as a couple, but no less enjoyable. My favourites were the Soaring Fantastic Flight and the Mediterranean Harbour (Leonardo Da Vinci). The option to pay for the express queue is definitely worth it, if you are a tourist with limited time to spend - otherwise attractions such as Soaring have a 2 hour waiting time!

    The most unique Disney park in the world
    There are 3 baby facilities listed on the website but I had only used the mermaid lagoon baby care room, as that was where a lot of the kiddy attractions were. Really cute place, the nicest diaper changing room I have ever seen! Each nursing cubicle has a curtain and is also decorated with mummy and baby sea animals. Very spacious and you can bring your whole pram in. But I would say that if you were bringing an under 3 year old and could only choose one park, Disneyland would be the park to choose. DisneySea is great but it’s a bit more for teenagers and adults. If you have time to spare for 2 parks, it’s really worth a visit though, as it’s the only DisneySea in the world. Just a note that getting up the Mediterranean Harbour seems like an easy stroll normally but is not easy at all for a wheelchair/stroller. A shortcut would be to take the lift within the Zambini Brothers Ristorante which brings you right to the top. DisneySea, with its own charms of course, doesn’t strike me as particularly easy to get around, unlike Disneyland. You’ll always have to go back to the Journey to the Centre of the Earth circle and proceed from there. Just build in some time for getting from place to place and do make use of the Electric Railway to get around as well.

    Happiest place in Japan
    Visited on a Tuesday. Not sure what other people are on about here .We queued for maximum 40 minutes on soaring at the end of the day (it was up to 85 minutes at peak) everything else was less and plenty of walk ons. We did 21 rides (including repeats) . We had done the main rides by lunch . no standby or premier access needed for us, did one single rider (raging spirits) you have to ask for single rider and they'll open chain for you(doesn't apply to all rides of course). I don’t understand the fuss with soaring, had done it in California and it was average but they love it here. Toy Story mania is also a 60 min+ most of the day so we skipped it. We got to security at 8:42 and arrived at our first ride (Indiana Jones) at 9am. They say don’t bring your own food but they didn’t physically search bags , just x ray. So unless you’re bringing a huge Picnic. You should be ok( we only had a packet of sweets and 500ml bottle of water). Snack Food stalls in the park usually specialise in one item which makes the language barrier a non issue. mickey mouse churros are fun. We didn’t get any proper food , just steamed mickey bun, mickey waffle , churros. We were concerned the proper food places would be too busy so can’t comment on them. a few vending machines but strictly coke , water and green tea, juice nothing crazy. water fountains everywhere. The cast members do a lot of waving but the Japanese guests seem to ignore them mostly, not always. We took a gondola ride and the driver was trying to get some kind of response from the guests but there was just awkward silence. We couldn’t really understand anyway so couldn’t help him. The park overall is super tidy and flash they’ve spared no expense. It just doesn’t have the big name marquee rides , but what it does have is top quality. It was busy but it’s so big you can easily find a quiet spot to sit and chill out. (which was not possible at Paris in Jan when i visited). Highlights include : Matcha white chocolate popcorn Journey to the centre of the earth Indiana Jones and the crystal skull Venetian gondola ride Tower of terror

    So much Fun
    Had to make it a point to go back to Disney Sea while in Japan. This time around I took pictures with characters I don't normally see in the US. Though Disney Sea doesn't give off the Disney vibe, it is still so much fun to be at the park. I have to say it was really cold when we were there but still a good time. If you haven't been, I'd say check it out at least once.

    Best Time: Week After Holiday
    We went the week after a big holiday and had less than a 30 minute wait on all rides. As for being vegetarian the best bet is the delicious Indian food and desserts! I couldn’t eat most other places but we only needed two meals anyway.

    Enjoyable experience and will revisit again
    My favourite ride is Soaring: Fantastic Flight (Disney Sea)!! . Is a full 2 hour queue and we went for Disney premier access. A day is definitely not enough. Enough to take in the sights and some rides but wish I have time to shop the merchandise stores

    Still Decent Experience Despite Renovations
    I was in Tokyo DisneySea for two days. When I went inside the park, the park had some renovations in the Discovery area near the volcano and the Indiana Jones land near the roller coaster. As a result, some of the attractions were in maintenance such as the museum attraction and the roller coaster attraction beside Indiana Jones. However, I enjoyed rides such as Soarin, Tower of Terror, and Finding Nemo. I've been to two expensive restaurants in the park (Magellan's and Ristorante di Canaletto), and I would say that the experience was under-par. The fine dining options in DisneySea were all Set Menus and not appealing compared to the other cheap options located in DisneySea. I would recommend to all future Disney travelers to stick with buying snacks and cafeteria-like options in DisneySea rather than the expensive options (also the fine dining options do not have any formal dress codes so don't worry). My favorite restaurants in the park include the pizza near Soarin and the curry in Aladdin Land. I advise travelers to wait until the new expansion for DisneySea comes out (which is I think next year) if they want to save money for a full experience in Tokyo DisneySea and the entire resort. I heard that the new expansion, including the new hotels, will have access to the Bayside Station area so two stations in the Disney Resort Line could be used to access DisneySea. Since the park is unique compared to other Disney Parks and the Italian atmosphere is still above excellence, I would give DisneySea 4 stars.

    Best Disney Park in the World
    Having been to Disneyland California, and many trips to Disneyworld Oralndo, DIsney Seas offers the best of them all. The night time show at Disney seas combines the best of the other parks. The variety of food and drinks and the attractions. The indoor kid area "Under the DisneySea" in Little mermaid Lagoon- great for little ones. As adults many excellent rides and shows.

    Seashore theme park
    Tokyo DisneySea is unlike the Disney theme parks in the U.S. It is themed to seashores around the world and has a mix of unique attractions and attractions that can be found at other Disney theme parks. Be sure to ask for a map at the information office before you enter. I went on a weekday so there were not many school-age kids. However, there were a lot of young adults dressed in cosplay as school children. Many were wearing mouse ears. If you love the Disney theme parks, you'll love Tokyo DisneySea. It's easy to get here via train and the Disney Resort Monorail.

    Must go and see this Park.
    60 Dollars for a one day ticket. Amazing experience. We have been to Disney parks in USA and Paris but this is my favorite park. The staff are so into their jobs. Helpful and Happy. The food is a fun experience. The rides did have long lines but they are worth the wait.

Let me say at the outset I am not a theme park fan but went to Disneysea while staying in Tokyo for 4 days as part of ‘family day’ with a family who are experienced with theme parks – we live in southeast Queensland which is near the theme park capital of Australia: the Gold Coast.

We were there mid week in winter and the place was packed – I would hate to see it in summer. Now I expected a gaudy, cheesy experience and I wasn’t disappointed on that front. What astounded me and my experienced family were the queues. Up to 3 hours to get on a park ride!!! An example: my wife and 10 year old went on the “Journey to the centre of the earth” and there wasn’t much of a queue out of the ‘cave’ when they entered. It took them 1hr45min to get on the ride which lasted 3mins!! The information board for this ride listed the wait time when they entered as 20mins! And the queue was huge by the time they left (see photo). Based on the experience of the family, the park ”app” (which you can only download once in the park) gave ride times that were 3 times lower than actual.

A suggestion: limiting ticket sales to reduce queues and ensure repeat business. Or is it that the Oriental Land Company are only interested in maximising the number of ticket sales each and every day? Perhaps we are spoiled in Australia but the idea of paying A$100 each to queue all day for a maximum of 4-5 rides for the day is ludicrous.

Also an observation on safety given the large numbers of people allowed through the gate. What is the Tsunami response plan here? I did not note any emergency exits or shelters and we were not briefed on what we should do in the event of a Tsunami. The park is right next to the sea. By contrast we also visited Owakudani near Hakone and there were shelters and warning signs everywhere regarding gas hazards and what to do in case of a volcanic eruption.

We will not be returning.

The park is breathtaking. Truly beautifully designed and manicured. HOWEVER, when you add a gazillion people it certainly looses its charm.
We went on a cloudy, cold, weekday in winter with crowd calendars telling us it would be relatively quiet. If this is relatively quiet I would hate to be there on a crowded day.
We arrived before the park opened and it still took 30 minutes to get in the gates. By the time we got in the park some of the rides already had 3 hour wait times. Simply ridiculous.
If you do decide to go, use the Fast Pass feature (free) and plan and skip some lines. The rides are good, but none are super Adrenalin packed. We enjoyed wandering around the park between rides. We saw the Big Beat Band show (excellent) and ate some ok (not great) food.
Overall I thought prices were pretty good.

The Disneysea experience is terrible. The queue’s are too long on the popular and good rides and consequently a lot of people don’t go on those rides. Only the least popular rides have short queues and can be ridden. Also Disney even charge high prices to ride the train to the Disneysea station and the entrance gate. All up it’s a terrible Disney experience

After hearing that Disney sea was
Exclusive to japan, we decided it was a must visit!
After we paid over $200 aus dollars for entry for two adults we were sorely disappointed . It appears to be a very money hungry tourist trap which does not limit entry numbers, subsequently leaving customers waiting 2-3 hours for popular “more extreme” rides...and important to note that we visited at off peak times!
As a resident of Australia where we are spoilt with theme parks such as movie world and dream world, I was left feeling very underwhelmed. There is the option of fast passes however they were all sold out before midday. There is an app for Japanese residents that allows exclusive access to fast pass tickets which is it not available to tourists. As this location clearly does not care about the enjoyment of tourists please do not waste your money! there is plenty of other amazing sites in japan which are far more worth the time and money!

Long lines for everything. Even popcorn!

We arrived just 30minutes after the park had opened. By the time we found the Fast passes they were all sold out. Local residents have an app on there phone to secure fast passes as soon as they walk in the gates. As a tourist I wouldn't waste your money. Pay a high price for entry and were unable to get on any rides unless you wait for 3 hours.. avoid avoid avoid

With a mass of visitors to the park, it was disappointing to see that there are really only 5 or so rides that are somewhat exciting. These take between 2-2.5hrs to line up for. The so called “fast pass” also allows you to ‘jump the queue’ 8 hrs after you apply for a fast pass. For example; Enter the park at 10:30am register for a fast pass on a ride, get to go straight to the front at 6:30pm...sarcasm intended.
The normal setting of waiting in line is extremely boring, tiresome (standing the whole time) and inaccurate (estimate or waiting times).
When you finally get to “enjoy” a ride, each time I was left with the feeling of “oh...is that it?”

An awful waste of time and money.

I am here today and extremely disappointed. The park is way too crowded by any standard. Have to que for 30 mins just to get into the park and we arrived with pre-bought tickets 10.05 am which is 5 mins after official opening time. The fast passes for Soaring and Toy Story was finnished by the time we stepped into the park. The non fast pass wait time for soaring ranged from 110 mins to over 200 mins throughout the day. When we got there at 4.15pm, and prepared to que, we were turned away as the wait time would have exceeded park closing hour at 7 pm.
The park hours was short from 10 am to 7 pm but the entrance fees remained the same.
The Japanese Disney folks should either limit the number of visitors or increase the duration of park hours.
Disney is touted to be the happiest place on earth but Tokyo Disneysea should be renamed “Disappointment Park”.

As an international visitor, buying a ticket was almost impossible. Ended up buying them through our hotel the morning of our visit, after the hotel watched us try again and again to purchase online. Surely there is a better system?

There is no wifi in the park, which is incredibly annoying when the map and all the details for your day are on an app. We were able to book for a show through the app but the friends we were with couldn’t and missed out. No idea why. The app seems highly flawed.

Paying an additional 2000 yen per person for a premier pass to skip the queue is outrageous. The old Fast Pass system was much better.

Most rides and shows are catered to a Japanese audience with no English translations. This didn’t bother us really, and we enjoyed immersing ourselves and trying to work the stories out ourselves.

On the positives, the people watching is amazing. Some of the rides are amazing. Yes, the queues can be long but as long as you expect it then it’s not too bad.

Tower of Terror and Soaring were the highlights for us.

OMG, this place has all the magic of Mordor!

Took my twins for their birthday, specifically planned to go in the low season, but there were just way too many people to have a good time.

We paid heaps, managed 2, that’s right 2 rides in a whole day. Queued to get on the monorail (which you have to pay for), queued to get entry tickets, queued to enter... we queued for 2.5 hours (sign said 1.5) for one ride. It’s just terrible. We queued 7 hours all up.

Entry needs to be limited. Such a waste of money!

Some of the rides in DisneySea are unique and very well crafted. However, there aren't many rides in DisneySea compared to DisneyLand, and this results in very long waiting times for each ride. You literally have to pay for premier access just to get anything done at all. This is on top of the 9800 yen I paid for the entrance ticket.

What triggered me most was paying for the sea parade at night. After paying 2500 yen each for premier access, I was directed to an area which I could barely see half the parade due to the crowd size and the fact that everyone was standing. And honestly, the view I got was not marginally better than those who did not pay for it. Even after we expressed our dissatisfaction to the staff, we were just rudely dismissed. For families, think twice about paying for premier access, your kids won't be able to see anything as they will be blocked by all the adults.

Overall, DisneySea felt like a nefarious cash-grab scheme designed to make you pay more despite having already spent on the entrance ticket. Me and my partner spent 20000 yen each in DisneySea, but we barely got half the amount of satisfaction as we did in DisneyLand. Really disappointed with the experience.

Avoid at all costs. It is not worth it!
