Magical hotels near Disneyland Tokyo for a family-friendly treat

The first Disneyland* park built outside the US, Tokyo Disneyland is the world’s third-most visited theme park.

With the dreamy spires and turrets of the Cinderella Castle rising from the centre, it’s no wonder this place inspires so many magical memories. That special Disneyland atmosphere makes its way into the surrounding hotels, with many being affiliated with the park in some way.

For Disneyland aficionados, these perfectly-located hotels place you right in the centre of the action and offer a truly immersive experience, often with uniquely designed themed rooms. Or if you want more bang for your buck, there are great resorts that provide easy access to both the park and to the city via the monorail and shuttle buses. In this list, we present eight of the most tempting hotels near Disneyland Tokyo, each with their own movie-worthy charm.

Magically themed hotel next to Disneyland Tokyo


Staying at Disney Ambassador Hotel means you are in prime position to enjoy Disneyland Tokyo. The complimentary shuttle bus – the 1930s Americana-inspired Disney Resort Cruiser complete with Mickey Mouse shaped windows – takes you between the hotel and the park with ease.

Sticking true to the Disney theme, rooms are decorated with some of their much-loved characters in mind. Fans will appreciate how the homage makes its way down to the minute details: patterns featuring Donald Duck’s hat adorn the lampshades, while beds are topped with pillows in the shape of Minnie Mouse’s bow.

Wind down the evenings in the Hyperion Lounge, an art deco-style room where you can enjoy a sophisticated cocktail while listening to faint notes of the piano drifting from the adjacent lobby.
