With every special event, there’s always a collectible design for the monorail day passes. The 20th anniversary is no different! You’re able to get them at the four other monorail stations at Tokyo Disney Resort. Check out our video below on how to buy these tickets!

Initial Thoughts

My initial thoughts are, this isn’t as grand as past anniversaries. However, given what happened with the pandemic, a smaller scale anniversary was inevitable. I am happy that it’s on for an entire year, so hopefully, by then, borders will be re-opened for Explorers to come and enjoy the festivities!

In addition to the 20th-anniversary, there’s still the brand new Beauty and the Beast area at Tokyo Disneyland, Super Nintendo World at Universal Studios Japan, and the upcoming Tokyo DisneySea Fantasy Springs expansion.

More Things to Do in Tokyo

My recommendations for things to do in and around Tokyo! Plan a day at the Hello Kitty theme park, Sanrio Puroland, and an afternoon at the popular TeamLab Planets TOKYO. Take a tour around Tokyo with the convenient hop-on and-off bus. Spend a rainy afternoon inside Japan’s largest indoor theme park, Tokyo Joyoplis, near Tokyo Disney!
