Event merchandise at Tokyo Disney Resort is gone once the event finishes (no options to buy elsewhere other than checking Nakano Broadway). See our list of current merchandise for more details and a few handy tips. For other merchandise, it’s not known how long it’s available for.
Crowds start to pick up in July due to school holidays and continue through to August. Marine Day is on Monday, July 15, and makes for a long weekend and larger crowds. It’s always best to visit Tuesday through Thursday.
Buy your tickets in advance to avoid long lines. Consult the Tokyo Disneyland crowd calendar for the latest predictions. Also, read our guide to know the best and worst times to visit Tokyo Disney Resort.
The average temperature for July is 26°C (79°F), which means you need to be ready for the heat. For other months, make sure to read our article on when to visit (it breaks down each month for you).
Sunscreen, boatloads of water, watching the summer shows to cool down, and frequent breaks are my recommendation to make sure you have a safe and wonderful time at the park. It doesn’t rain much during this time, but it does happen.
Here are the closures for July. Keep in mind that they stick to the schedule in most cases and things do not open early or late unless noted. For all the announced closure information beyond July, head to our Ride Closures 2019 Guide.
