Buying your Park tickets for Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea is tough. So, that means getting tickets has become more confusing than before. That’s why we’ve updated this guide to help you buy tickets for Tokyo Disneyland! Including Tokyo Disneyland ticket prices.
Please note that information on Park tickets is frequently changing 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 (October 2021), the only way to buy tickets is through the official Tokyo Disney Resort official website and app. Since things are changing at Tokyo Disney Resort at a rapid pace, and we’ll keep this information as up-to-date as possible.
Update (November 5, 2021): Tokyo Disney Resort has released additional tickets for November 2021.
There’s a lot of confusion regarding the “lottery” system for park tickets. This system is only for guests who want to use their stakeholders or complimentary park tickets. For most people, you’ll buy tickets through the official website or Disney Hotels as a guest. There’s no lottery to purchase tickets through the official website.
The only type of ticket available is dated 1-day park tickets for Tokyo Disneyland & Tokyo DisneySea. It’s not known when other ticket types are coming back.
Tickets are only available through the Official Tokyo Disney Resort website (you have to print), through the official Tokyo Disney Resort App (Japanese version only), and as a guest at one of the Disney Hotels or Official Hotels. You may be able to find tickets through JTB travel agents in Japan.
Tickets are available up to 30-days in advance, and you’re able to buy five tickets at a time. You can check the park ticket availability on the official website. Wednesdays at 2 PM Japan time are when tickets typically go on sale.
Yup! If you’re staying at the Tokyo Disneyland Hotel, Tokyo DisneySea Hotel MiraCosta, Disney Ambassador Hotel, or Tokyo Disney Celebration Hotel, you’re able to buy your 1-day park ticket for the day after your check-in. Meaning, if you’re check-in is on Monday then you’re able to buy a ticket for Tuesday.
If you book your stay through the Japanese website, you can choose the plan that includes a guaranteed ticket for Tokyo Disneyland or Tokyo DisneySea. The English websites don’t offer this option, it’s best to contact the hotels directly to ask.
If your credit card doesn’t work you can buy tickets from the convenience stores like Family Mart, but you need to be there at 6 AM when tickets go on sale a week in advance. Another option is to sign up for LINE Pay and use the VISA debit card (make sure you have a passcode setup) and buy through the Tokyo Disney Resort App (in Japanese) or the website.

What do I do if I want more than 4 days?
You’ll need to buy additional Park tickets since the longest days are offered at 4 consecutive days. If you plan on visiting for more than 8 days then it’s worth considering the Annual Passport (more on that later in the article).
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
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 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 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)|

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 to both the reservation site and for use 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)

- Save money by buying your ticket at the convenience store (Japanese Language Only)

- 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

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.
