Like you, we wanted to know where to stay near Tokyo Disneyland and DisneySea. And we did a fair bit of research on where to stay in Tokyo. We wanted to be close to Tokyo DisneySea and Tokyo Disneyland and also to be able to see as much of the city as possible.
Fairly early on we decided that we wanted to stay in the Tokyo Bay area for a number of reasons. Firstly, it ticked the box in relation to the parks and it was close to areas such as Odaiba. Secondly, we like to be able to come away from the noise and busyness of a city to somewhere a bit more relaxing. And, finally the hotels here offer fantastic views of Tokyo Bay, with bigger rooms and better value than hotels in the centre.
We liked the look of the Hilton Tokyo Bay and were going to book the hotel and flights separately. But as luck would have it when we checked the British Airways website they were offering a package deal on this very hotel. This worked out a fair bit cheaper than booking travel and accommodation separately and we were not disappointed with our choice.
Getting to the Hotel
On arrival at Maihama station we made our way to the Tokyo Disney Resort Welcome Center. As an official Tokyo Disney Resort Hotel, Hilton Tokyo Bay offers a luggage drop off facility here and our luggage was then transported to the hotel. This was a real convenience.
We then made our way to the Hotel on the Hotel’s free shuttle bus. We found this very convenient and a great way to start our stay.
Our Celebrio room had four single beds and we were a bit unsure about how we would sleep in them before we went! But they were so comfortable that we all slept like logs.
The room was spacious and light with a panoramic view of Tokyo Bay. The bathroom had a WC with heated toilet seat, wash spray and music and pyjamas and slippers were also supplied.
Breakfast at the Hotel was very good. Serving everything from gummy bears (!), sushi and dumplings to the usual continental and cooked buffet breakfast. Eggs were made to order and the omelettes were great. It made a really good start to the day.
Facilities and Services
- Within the Hotel was a Disney shop as well as a small grocery store, a bakery (selling sweet and savoury snacks) and a small coffee shop. There are also a couple of restaurants but we didn’t eat at the Hotel other than at breakfast.
- Staff at the Hotel were absolutely brilliant. In the restaurant, at reception, the Managers, cleaners and Chefs. By the end of our stay, we were on first name terms with many of them.
- There’s a large pool and gym area as well as Onsen in the male and female changing rooms for which there is a charge. They are rules in relation to Onsen such as no costumes to be worn and no showing of tattoos in the pool.
- We were able to purchase entry tickets to the Disney Theme Parks at the hotel. The hotel ticket office, was open at regular times, but not for long. They would also only accept cash payment. We had already decided to buy 4 Day Magic Passports but you can also buy 1, 2 or 3 day passes as well as tickets for the monorail to the parks. A 4-day Magic Passport cost Y22,400 per adult, Y19,400 for a youth aged 12 – 17 and Y14,400 for under 12s. In total we paid Y78,600 which was around £545 in total.
The Hotel offered a free shuttle bus to the JR Maihama Station which was very convenient and we used it every day. We really enjoyed our stay here and were happy that we got it right when it came to where to stay near Tokyo Disneyland and DisneySea.
