A recent Fox News story stated that when it comes to Disney parks around the world, Tokyo Disney Resort boasts the biggest bang for your buck – especially if you’re traveling with the US greenback. But just how much might it cost for you to plan a trip to Tokyo Disney Resort? We crunched the numbers for you, and you might be surprised to see the results!
Types of Travelers
We took three typical groups of travelers who might visit Tokyo Disney Resort:
- A family of four (two adults, and two children – ages 4 and 8)
- An adult couple (two adults)
- A solo adult traveler
What’s Included in the Prices
Here’s what we factored in to the cost of the trip:
- A three-day park passport for each person.
- Two nights accommodations at the following hotels:
- Tokyo Disneyland Hotel
- Disney Ambassador Hotel
- Tokyo Bay Hilton (partner hotel on-site)
- Family Inn + Resort Fifties (off-site)
- A daily food budget
- For those staying at Tokyo Disneyland Hotel, Disney Ambassador Hotel, and Tokyo Bay Hilton, we allotted ¥5,000 per day per adult and ¥3,000 per day per child.
- For those staying at Family Inn + Resort Fifties, we allotted ¥2,000 per person per day.
- Ground transportation to-and-fromNarita International Airport
- For those staying at Tokyo Disneyland Hotel, Disney Ambassador Hotel, and Tokyo Bay Hilton, we used the pricing for a limousine bus service from Narita.
- For those staying at Family Inn + Resort Fifties, we used the cost of taking the Keisei Narita Sky Access train and the JR Musashino line. We also factored in an allowance of ¥2,000 for train transportation to-and-from the hotel.
- The dates used to calculate these numbers were for a stay in mid-July 2015.
