Our latest review comes from Malin at TDR News & Info.
Cost is on everyone’s minds when planning out a trip to the Tokyo Disney Resort. Accommodations being one of the most significant costs. It’s for this reason why you may consider a visit to be expensive. Staying onsite at the Disney Hotels you will pay a premium for the privilege. Fortunately, onsite are a group of Official Hotels which are often available on popular websites like Hotels.com for a small fraction of the cost. I always stay at the Sheraton Grande which is conveniently located at Bayside Station on the Resort Line. Only minutes away from both parks, Ikspiari, and Maihama station, giving you easy access to Tokyo Station.
The Hotel is easily accessed via the Airport Limousine Bus service which will bring you directly from either Narita or Haneda Airports. It’s also easy to get here by using the trains.
Guests also receive benefits for staying at the Sheraton, which include:
- Tokyo Disney Resort Ticket counter
- Guaranteed Admission (Even on days where the park is said to be at capacity)
- Tokyo Disney Resort Information
- Disney Fantasy Store
English Speaking Staff
Staff do speak some English, although some are much better than others. You can expect the front line staff to speak enough English to understand you. From checking in to asking for extra blankets, you will not have any problems.
The rooms will either face the Parks or Tokyo Bay. All are fully furnished and offer a decent size for Japan. Perfect for a rest after a long day of sightseeing.
Free WiFi is available through out the lobby and the [email protected] offers plenty of PC’s to check your e-mails and search the internet. A Disney Fantasy Store is a great place to pick up many souvenirs without facing the crowds. The hotel also has a few Restaurants and a Cafe. However because of its location, you could easily take the Resort Line over to Ikspiari where a huge variety of options await. A fitness center is also available but I did not get to try it out this time.
Getting to the Parks
Access to Bayside Station is directly across the street and a complimentary shuttle bus will drop you off at the station if you are unable to walk the distance or decide to reserve energy. Although the loading and unloading process is quite long, if you are able to go on foot it’s highly recommended to walk. Which is a 2-3 minute walk.
Next time you are looking up Hotels to stay at in Japan to visit Tokyo Disney Resort, consider the Sheraton Grande Tokyo Bay. A good Western style hotel – right in the heart of the Resort – for a very reasonable price.
