Where to Buy
It’s best to buy your tickets in advance (up to 60 days):
- Online (with or without a Disney Hotel Booking)
- Online through Klook (see section below for more details) as they accept all major credit cards and is super simple to use.
- Select Disney Stores in Japan (choose Kanto from the dropdown for Tokyo)
- Ticket Center at Tokyo Disney Resort
- Family Mart or Lawson Convenience Stores in Japan (Japanese only)
You can buy tickets on the same day right at the ticket booths. However, if the Parks are at capacity, they will suspend sales of tickets until a specified time (they post this information outside the parks). If you are staying at the resort, you can buy tickets when you book your hotel. Hotel guests are also guaranteed Park admittance.
Check the crowd calendar to see predicted days the park may reach capacity.
Cast members in both locations are very helpful and give service in English.
Park Tickets from Klook
One service we recommend is Klook. They offer ticket for both Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea. They accept all major credit cards and PayPal, which is perfect if you are unable to buy tickets from the official website. Use our discount code KLKTDREX and save off your first order.
You print off the e-ticket and that is your ticket to get into the Park. Here’s a quick rundown:
- 1-Day Park Ticket for Tokyo Disneyland OR Tokyo DisneySea
- You should receive your voucher instantly after purchasing
- 2-Day Park Ticket
- You can visit Tokyo Disneyland one day, then Tokyo DisneySea on the other. Or visit the same park two days in a row.
- It takes 2 business days to receive your tickets. Buy these ahead of time to give yourself time to receive the tickets. If you need a ticket immediately, buy the 1-day Park Ticket and upgrade once at the park.
- Guests can extend this ticket — while still valid — to a 3-day or 4-day ticket.
- Days 3 and 4 are park hopper days
- Guests with this ticket are able to enter the park even when the park is at capacity (suspended ticket sales).
- Guests can exchange this ticket for a printed ticket at any ticket booth or ticket center for a cost of ¥200.
- You must present a print out of your ticket. As long as the QR code is readable you can print it on any sized paper.
- To get FastPasses you fold the paper and have the QR scanner in the machine read it.
- This ticket is labeled as an “Overseas Limited Passport” (海外限定パスポート).
Using a Non-Japanese Credit Card
To use a non-Japanese credit card with the Tokyo Disney Resort reservation system for both tickets & hotels, your card must have the 3-D Secure Authentication (MasterCard SecureCode and Verified by Visa).
There is more information on the official website, which lists which credit cards are accepted. If you can book successfully with your credit card, let us know what type of card you used in the comments. It appears that Amex is not accepted.
What to do if your Credit Card doesn’t work
If your credit card does not work with the Tokyo Disney Resort reservation system? You have a few options:
- Buy your tickets through Klook.
- Buy your tickets at select Disney Stores in Japan
- Buy your tickets right at the resort before or on the day of your visit.
- Be aware that on days which are at high capacity, they may suspend ticket sales for a certain amount of time. Check the crowd calendar to see if your dates are predicted to reach capacity.
- Check with your local travel agent.
- Ask a friend in Japan to buy tickets for you.
Hotel Guest Tickets
Guests staying at the Disney Hotels can buy a “Multi-Day Passport Special.” This allows visitors to Park hop on any day during their ticket, which is not available to regular ticket holders.
- 2 Day Ticket: ¥14,800 ($131 USD)
- 3 Day Ticket: ¥19,400 ($172 USD)
- 4 Day Ticket: ¥24,000 ($212 USD)
All the tickets listed above are a ¥1,600 ($14 USD) difference to a normal ticket. You’re able to buy normal tickets as well and you’re able to buy your tickets right at the hotel and are guaranteed admission.
While it is up to you to decide if this is worth the extra money, we do not recommend this if it is your first visit. There is much to see and experience at the parks, that you can easily spend an entire day there. If your trip is short or you have visited in the past, then this is an excellent way to get the most out of your journey.
It’ll take you about 20 to 30 minutes to get between the parks on any given day, even with using the monorail.
Other Discounted Tickets
If you’re not looking to spend all day in the Parks, there are some options to cut your ticket price. Two discounted passports are available on select days. Check the Parks Operation Calendar to see when they are available.
After 6 Passport
A discounted ticket for ¥4,200 ($37 USD) after 6 pm. It is available only on weekdays, except National Holidays. Admission is not guaranteed if the Parks are at capacity.
This is perfect if you wish to simply enjoy the Park and take in an evening show. Do not expect to ride many attractions or get FastPasses, unless the weather is not ideal.
Enjoy one Park for ¥5,400 ($48 USD) after 3 pm. This ticket is only available on weekends and National Holidays. While not much of a discount, it is still cheaper than the average adult ticket of 6,900 yen. That’s one other adorable plush to put in your suitcase!
Seasonal Discounted Tickets
Tokyo Disney Resort sometimes offers discounted tickets during their slow season (see our When Should You Visit Tokyo Disney Resort to find out when that is.) This is sometimes limited to residents in Japan. If you have a friend in Japan, ask them to buy tickets for you ahead of time. Discounts are not much and are usually around ¥700-800 (~$6-7 USD), but it is better than nothing.
Annual Passport (Annual Pass)
Is it worth buying an annual passport? The short answer is no.
That is unless you plan on going to the parks more than eight days (that’s with buying a 1-Park Annual Passport). You also don’t get any notable perks, such as discounts on merchandise and hotel rooms. However, you would be allowed into the Parks on high volume days only with the 1-Park Annual Passport.
- 2-Park Annual Passport – ¥93,000 ($825USD)
- 1-Park Annual Passport – ¥63,000 ($560USD)
Changing or Exchanging Your Ticket
Once you buy your ticket, you can change the following with a ¥200 fee. Take your tickets to Guest Services or the ticket booths. There, you can:
- Change the ticket date, type, Park, or expiration date.
- Exchange your printed e-ticket (from the convenience store or through the official website) to a hard printed ticket. The designs vary. This is perfect if you want to have a ticket for a souvenir.
- Reduce the number of days on your multi-day passport. This is ¥200 for each day you reduce, with an extra ¥200 per ticket.
Extending Your Passport
If you buy a 1 to a 3-day passport, you can extend it to a maximum of 4 days. To do this, go to the Guest Relations Center in either Park or at the Ticketing Center in Ikispari. Your passport must still be valid to be extended.
