How to Use the Free Tokyo Disney Resort Wi-Fi
Japan isn’t known for its free and accessible wi-fi (unlike many other countries in the world). For years, the only free wi-fi available at Tokyo Disney Resort was at the Disney Hotels. If you wanted to access the internet, you’d have to head to Starbucks in Ikspirari.
Keep in mind the official Tokyo Disney Resort app is only available in Japanese. See our guide on what alternatives to use.
As of May 2019, Tokyo Disney Resort now offers free wi-fi at both Tokyo Disneyland & Tokyo DisneySea. Here’s how to connect and what parts of the Parks are covered.
SIM Cards & Mobile Wi-Fi
It’s still quite difficult to access free public wi-fi throughout Japan. While this is slowly changing, I recommend not relying on public wi-fi. Here’s a list of SIM cards and mobile wi-fi devices I recommend to use not only at Tokyo Disney Resort but throughout Japan.
Mobal Sim Card – This is perfect for those who are heavy data users and have an unlocked device. Order it before your trip and have it set up by the time you land in Japan. Read my full review of this SIM Card here.
Mobile Wi-Fi – If you want to share and have multiple devices connected at once then you’ll want a mobile wi-fi. This is perfect for families, couples, or friends traveling together. You’ll have to pick your mobile wi-fi device up at the airport.
Tokyo Disney Resort Wi-Fi: How to Use It
As of this writing (May 2019), wi-fi is only available at:
- Entrances to Tokyo Disneyland & Tokyo DisneySea
- Tokyo Disneyland Picnic Area (Left of Entrance)
I’d expect the wi-fi range to extend in the future. The official Tokyo Disney Resort Park maps show where these spots are. Here’s how you connect and start using the free wi-fi.
How to Connect
Once you’re in range look for Park_Entrance_Free_Wi-Fi in your wi-fi list and tap the name. To use the wi-fi You’re asked to give your email or login with a social media account. I recommend using your email address.
You’re able to access the internet for 10-minutes to check your email. If you don’t see the email, check your spam folder. Tap the activation link and voila! It’s quite painless, which is nice. However, there are a few things you need to be mindful of.
You’re only able to connect for 15-minutes at a time.
Since this is public wi-fi, I recommend only checking non-critical information like wait times, the official Tokyo Disney Resort website, and your social media accounts. Don’t access sensitive information such as your bank account. This is to protect your privacy and data.
An excellent way to protect yourself further is having a VPN while using public wi-fi. My preferred VPN service is ExpressVPN. It’s perfect for those Explorer who are planning to visit not only Japan but Mainland China (Shanghai) and Hong Kong.
Now that you know how to access the free wi-fi at Tokyo Disney Resort, let’s help you plan the rest of your trip to Asia below!
