  • [Question] Words of advice

    Dear members,

    My name is is Bowie, I'm 22 years old and come frome the Netherlands. I made reservations for Hotel Miracosta and the Tokyo Disneyland hotel and bought a flight ticket for upcoming July. Everything was set and we were happy to go. Because of circumstances I had to cancel it. My girlfriend and I went trough a rough time and since we can probably only do this once (we both saved some money for a long, long time) I would like it to be practically perfect. May 2015 is the month we are going to visit the Tokyo Disney Resort. The reason I started this topic is the following: I would love and like some words of advice from you guys, can you help me out?

    Date: We originally wanted to visit Tokyo from may first until may 10th and visit the Tokyo Disney Resort somewhere in between. I found out that it's golden week that week, right? Are there some days between may first and may 10th that are less crowdy? Or is it better to visit Tokyo may 8th until may 17th and visit the resort somewhere in Between? I know I have to avoid Saturdays and Sundays but what's the best thing I can do?

    Rides: Since we can only to this once I would like to make the most out of it for my girlfriend and me. For TDS we would like to visit: Journey to the center of the earth, Sindbad, 20.000 leagues, Indiana Jones, Fortress Explorations and the Tower of Terror. For TDL the rides for us would be: Winnie, Splash, Monster Inc, Roger Rabbit, Jungle Cruise, Pirates and Space Mountain. Do you guys know if any of these rides have there annual refurbishment in May? Do you guys know which rides regularly get there refurbishment in May? If not, do you guys know when the refurb-schedule of 2015 comes available?

    Hotel:I really would like to book Hotel Miracosta for 3 days and the Tokyo Disneyland hotel for one day, just as I did for this summer. Could you give me an advice on which dates in May between may first until May 17th would be the best to book? And when is the best time to book that date?

    Something special:Since my girlfriend and I went trough a rough time I want to do something special for her. If I get the chance to book Hotel Miracosta and the Tokyo Disneyland hotel again and make dinner reservations at Magellan's S.S Colombia and Blue Bayou then I would like to do something special for her there. Is there a special request for the dessert in a restaurant or a special request in the hotel room possible?(pedals or things like that)

    I know I sound picky and I probably am but I would like it, as Mary would say, practically perfect in every way since I can only do this once. I hope you guys understand what I'm trying to say (I tried to say it in my best English ) and I hope you can give me some words of advice. Thanks in advance!!!!!

    Cheers,
    Bowie

      Like Fukai said, do not go during GW. It's supremely crowded and you won't get to do much of anything unless you enjoy waiting in godawful lines. The weeks prior to GW are usually much less crowded, as is the week following. Weekdays are obviously ideal. I know some friends went mid-April and said that lines did not exceed anything more than one hour on the weekdays and they were able to ride many rides multiple times, so that's a really opportune time!

        ...and remember that after you have been this once in a lifetime in Tokyo, if you like it enough, you can go again.

          I spent every day at the resort during the Golden Week and it was the best moment for me. So why not?!? During crowded day, the resort always runs the park at its maximum power. They even shoot fireworks in rainy day. Popcorn is hot and new. Queues are longer, which mean you can fully see and understand every aspects of the rides. The more guests watching the shows, the more interactions are made. Watching legend of Mythica on low attendant day is such a boring.

          However, first time travelers should avoid GW to avoid disappointment. After visiting TDR more than once, I recommend to visit the park on weekend.

              I would love to go in April but I'm afraid that that's not possible as is the week before golden week. I think I will go the week following, and as you say I will go in weekdays because there's much more crowd in the weekend. Thanks for your advice

                  That's true but on the other hand it's indeed good to avoid GW as a first timer! Thanks for your advice!

                    Re: Words of advice

                    You should be able to do all the rides you want to do plus much more. No reason you can't do it all.

                    Don't miss Triton's Kingdom at TDS!

                    Ask for Front row for Journey, it's much better.

                    See the shows! See Mystic Rhythms and Big Band Beat. Don't forget about the show at the Cape Cod Cookout.

                    it's all good!

                      The park is quite empty in April after spring break and before Golden Week. It's chilly, but if you want to see the most while waiting on the shortest lines, that's the best time of year.

                        I think you mean Mermaid Lagoon.

                        And the show at Cape Cod Cook-Off is a must-see only if you're a Duffy fan. If you don't care for Duffy, skip it.

                          April is hard for us, I guess it will be the week after the Golden week. Thanks for your advice guys, really helpful. I guess I will skip Cape cod cook-off, it's not that I don't like duffy but I think there are things I like more for my first visit.

                            No, I meant Triton's Kingdom. It is the underground part of Mermaid Lagoon, and it's easy to miss the entrance. It is spectacular.

                            I didn't say Duffy was a 'must-see,' I think the OP should see everything, including the Duffy show. I am not a fan of Duffy, but it is a great set-up: you watch the show, sit down and rest, and have a snack. It's a refreshing surprise treat.

                              Seriously... TDS has 4 shows one have to see for different reasons. Ariel, Big band beat, Mythica and Fantasmic. The rest is just a complete waste of time. Trust me Bowie. If you like Duffy, buy him and take him with you home. Don't waist precious "going to the bathroom" time on his shows.

                              Take that Duffy hahah
