Buying your Park tickets for Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea is confusing. With the recent state of the world, they’ve become even more confusing to buy. We’ve updated this guide to help you buy tickets for Tokyo Disneyland in 2021.
Please note that information on Park tickets is changing frequently as things change at the Resort. If you live in Japan currently and want to visit the Parks then this information is relevant. If you’re outside Japan and planning a trip, keep in mind that there’s a good chance this information will change drastically when the borders to Japan re-open. Meaning, don’t stress too much about how it works right now because it will change.
We’ll keep this updated as things change.

How to Buy Tokyo Disneyland & Tokyo DisneySea Park Tickets in 2021
As of this writing (April 2021), the only way to buy tickets is through the official Tokyo Disney Resort official website and app.
- Only 1-day tickets are available
- Tickets are available ONLY through the English website (must print) or Tokyo Disney Resort App (Japanese only) **
- Tickets are available up to 30-days in advance
- You can buy up to 5 tickets at one time (credit card only)

** If you have the official Tokyo Disney Resort app, you’re unable to buy tickets through the English version. You’ll have to use the Japanese version of the app.

How to Tokyo Disneyland Tickets
There are multiple ways to buy your park tickets for Tokyo Disneyland & Tokyo DisneySea. I highly recommend you buy your tickets in advance to avoid the stress of standing in line at the ticket booths (this wastes time) or having the disappointment of the tickets potentially being sold out. Tickets are available up to 90-days in advance.
- Tokyo Disney Resort Online Reservation (with or without a Disney Hotel Booking)
- Ticket Booths at Tokyo Disneyland or Tokyo DisneySea (Same day tickets only)
- Ticket Center at Tokyo Disney Resort (Advance tickets only)
- 3rd Party: Voyagin (Trusted Affiliate) EASIEST & MOST RECOMMENDED
- At Disney Hotel & Tokyo Disney Resort Official Hotels (See next section)
- Select Disney Stores in Japan (choose Kanto from the dropdown for Tokyo)
- Family Mart or Lawson Convenience Stores in Japan (Japanese only)
Check our recommended crowd calendar to see predicted days the Parks may reach capacity.
How do I buy tickets if I’m not in Japan?
The easiest way is to buy directly from Tokyo Disney Resort through the official website and print off your tickets to bring with you. Another option is to buy through Voyagin and pick them up at Maihama Station.
Disney & Official Hotel Guests
Few people think about medicines before going to the atratskion, but they may be needed and it is better to buy them in advance via the Internet. On the website corpvisionlife.net/ you will find generic drugs with good discounts.
One of the best perks of staying at the Disney Hotels or Tokyo Disney Resort Official Hotel is guaranteed park admission (even on capacity days).
If you’re staying at the at a Disney Hotel (Disney Ambassador Hotel, Tokyo Disneyland Hotel, Hotel MiraCosta, & Tokyo Celebration Hotel), you can buy park tickets with your hotel reservation or at their ticket counters (cash or credit cards). Hotel guests at the Official Hotels (Hilton Tokyo Bay, Sheraton Grande Tokyo Bay Hotel, etc) are able to buy tickets at the ticket counters in the hotels (cash only).
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. These tickets are a ¥1,600 ($14 USD) difference to a normal ticket. See the official website for pricing and details.
While it is up to you to decide if the “Multi-Day Passport Special” is worth the extra money, we do not recommend this if it is your first visit. There is much to see and experience at both parks and it takes about 20-30 minutes to Park hop on any given day. 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.
Tokyo Disneyland Discount Tickets
Seasonal Discounted Tickets: Discounted tickets are sometimes available during the slower winter season. 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 (US$6.00).
Is there a Military Discount?
There is no Military discount at Tokyo Disney Resort since the Resort is owned and operated by Oriental Land Company.
3rd Party Tickets (Voyagin)
If you’re unable to buy tickets through the official website then I recommend buying tickets through our trusted affiliate Voyagin. While these tickets aren’t discounted, Voyagin accepts all major credit cards.
We are affiliates of Voyagin. Any tickets bought through links on our website give us a small commission. This helps us keep the website running and to continue bringing you the best content possible. Read our full disclosure for details.
Any information given here is subject to change without notice. It’s always best to check directly on Voyagin’s website.
- 1-Day Tokyo Disney Resort Passport (Maihama Station Pickup)
- 1-Day Tokyo DisneySea Passport (Maihama Station Pickup)
A few things to know:
- Tickets through Voyagin are open date tickets (you can visit on any day before your ticket expires)
- You’re able to upgrade these tickets from a 1-day to a multi-day ticket (visit Guest Relations)
- Your ticket is valid for FastPass at both Tokyo Disneyland & Tokyo DisneySea
- You’re able to exchange your e-tickets for physical tickets for ¥200 (US$2.00) at Guest Relations
After 6 Passport & Starlight Passport
An easy way to save money or extend your time at the Tokyo Disneyland or Tokyo DisneySea is by not buying a full-day ticket! Tokyo Disney Resort offers two discounted types of tickets. You can buy these online these in advance or at the Park on the day-of. There’s rarely a worry of these tickets selling out in most cases.
- The After 6 Passport is a discounted ticket for ¥4,200 (US$37) after 6 pm and is available only on weekdays, except National Holidays.
- The Starlight Passport allows you to enjoy one Park for ¥5,400 (US$48) after 3 pm and is only available on weekends and National Holidays.
Both the After 6 and Starlight Passport are similar to the Mid-Day Magic Ticket at Walt Disney World. These tickets are perfect if you wish to simply enjoy the Park and take in an evening show. One thing to keep in mind is depending on the day, FastPass tickets for the popular attractions at Tokyo Disneyland & Tokyo DisneySea are likely to be gone.
Tokyo Disney Resort Annual Pass (Annual Passport)
Is it worth buying an annual passport? The short answer is no unless you plan on going to the parks for more than eight days. If you plan on visiting the Park a lot within one-year then it’s worth considering. A few things to note:
- There are no discounts on merchandise, food, or hotels
- Blackout dates exist for both 2- and 1-Park Passports
- You don’t have to live in Japan to get an Annual Passport
Anyone is able to buy an Annual Pass, regardless if you live in Japan or not. If you live outside Japan bring your Passport to complete the application (there’s English don’t worry). If you’re a resident of Japan then your Resident Card is valid to use. Keep in mind that all Annual Passports now have black-out dates.
Annual Passport Prices from April 1, 2020
|Annual Passport Type||Adult (Ages 12+)||Child (Ages 4-11)|
|2-Park Annual Passport||¥99,000 (US$913)||¥57,000 (US$528)|
|2-Park Annual Passport (Senior 65+)||¥85,000 (US$784)|
|1-Park Annual Passport||¥68,000 (US$627)||¥40,000 (US$370)|
|1-Park Annual Passport (Senior 65+)||¥58,000 (US$535)|
Credit Card Issues
Before making a reservation or booking tickets through the official Tokyo Disney Resort website, make sure your card has the 3-D Secure Authentication (MasterCard SecureCode and Verified by Visa). This helps avoid any potential issues. According to the Japanese FAQ (the English site doesn’t specify), the following credit cards are accepted **:
- AMEX (American Express)
- Diners Club
- Discover Card
** Your card may or may not work so it’s best to have a backup credit card. This applies for both the reservation site and for using inside the Parks.
If your credit card doesn’t work with the Tokyo Disney Resort Reservation system, here are a few options:
- Buy tickets through a 3rd Party (see next section)
- Call your credit card provider to see if your transaction was blocked
- Buy tickets at select Disney Stores in Japan
- Buy tickets 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
- Ask a friend in Japan to buy tickets for you
Tips & Advice
There’s a lot to take in, so here’s a quick summary of tips and advice:
- Buy tickets in advance (up to 90 days)
- Printed tickets come with special designs (you don’t choose)
- Use Voyagin for your 1-day Park Tickets (Maihama Station Pickup)
- Most Disney Stores in Japan sell tickets (Shibuya and Ikebukuro)

- An annual passport is only worth it if you plan on visiting more than 8-10 times in a year
- If you have a group of 25 or more, you can enjoy a discounted 1-Day Park Ticket
Changing or Exchanging Your Ticket
Once you buy your ticket, you can change the following with a ¥200 fee (visit Guest Relations Center or the ticket booths). See the Tokyo Disney Resort official website for full details.
- Change the ticket date or Park
- Exchange your printed e-ticket (from the convenience store, official website, etc) to a hard printed ticket
- Reduce the number of days on your multi-day passport. This is ¥200 for each day you reduce, with an extra ¥200 per ticket.
Note: As of June 4, 2019, you are no longer able to add-on days to your Passport. You’ll have to buy another day ticket.
Tokyo Disney Resort has a lot of options when it comes to buying Park tickets. I hope that this guide has helped you take some of the stress and frustration out of deciding how to buy them.
