    Tokyo Disney Resort Transportation

Transportation to and from the Airport to Tokyo Disneyland

When you arrive at Narita or Haneda airport, you’ll need to find a way to get to Tokyo Disneyland - luckily you have a lot of options. Our favorite option is Airport Limousine Bus, which you can find outside of the airport (follow the signs or ask the information desk if you need directions). Tickets are around $20 and can be purchased at the Limousine Bus desk, or at automated ticket machines near where the bus loads. The travel time from Narita to Tokyo Disney is around 60 to 90 minutes, while the travel time from Haneda to Tokyo Disney is 30 to 60 minutes. You can also take the Limousine Bus back to the airport from any of the Tokyo Disney Resort on-site hotels. Tickets can be purchased from the front desk. The major downside to Limousine Bus is that the buses leaving Tokyo Disney Resort hotels stop running around 5 PM. Buses going to Tokyo Disney Resort from the airports stop around 7 PM.

Your other option to/from the airport is to use public transportation. This will be your cheapest option, but also the most intimidating to first time visitors. If you rent a mobile WiFi hotspot and pick it up from the airport (which you should absolutely, 100%, beyond a shadow of a doubt do) you can use the greatest invention of all time for travelers, Google Maps. Just type in Tokyo Disney Resort in to Google Maps and it will tell you the exact lines to take, how many stops between you and your destination, when to transfer, and the expected travel time. It works great and I wouldn’t be caught dead without it. If you’ve never been to Japan before and you’re considering using public transportation to get to your hotel from the airport, consider this: You’ve just been on a plane for over 10 hours, you spent at least 40 minutes going through customs, and maybe another 30 minutes picking up your bag; you’re exhausted and maybe not thinking clearly; and, after all that you know have to use a complicated transportation system with multiple stops and transfers between you and your destination. This may not be a big deal to some people, but to others it will be.

Another option is to use a taxi, which is both the fastest and the most expensive. Make sure you’re sitting down for this one: the cost of a taxi from Narita airport to Tokyo Disney Resort can cost around $150 for a one way trip, or over $200 if you travel between 10 PM and 5 AM.

Transportation Around Tokyo Disney Resort

When you're in Tokyo Disney Resort, you can travel around via the Tokyo Disney Resort Line, aka the monorail. There are four stops: Resort Gateway Station (which is next to Maihama railway station), Tokyo Disneyland Station, Bayside Station (where all the non-Disney on-site hotels are located), and Tokyo DisneySea Station. Tickets cost a couple dollars a day. The monorail runs daily 6 AM to 12 AM. Keep in mind, Tokyo Disney Resort Line ticket machines only accept cash. Credit cards are not accepted.

To enter the Tokyo Disney Resort Line platform you must first go through one of the gates. Look for one that is open, have your Resort Line ticket ready, insert the ticket in to the slot, walk through, and your ticket will appear on the other side. Don't forget to take your ticket as you walk through the gate.
