  • Returning to Tokyo in 2007

    In the last few weeks I have made a decision to cancel my upcoming trip to Walt Disney World and decided instead to return back to the Tokyo Disney Resort for later in the year.Concidering Halloween time again I think only this time Im also interested in adding Hong Kong on as well.So lots to sort out,and looks like you got be hanging around the forum for a while yet.

    So far made the choice to fly with Virgin Atlantic to either destination.And will be staying at the perfered Hilton in Shinjuku sorry but I refuse to pay any extra for a room onsite.

    So thats me confirm for 2007 who else is going?

    I wish I could go in 2007. I have enough miles, but no time, so far.

      I'll be going, and also during the Halloween celebration. But I refuse to stay offsite--I don't want to see anything "non-Disney" or I don't get the full mental benefit of the vacation.

      How much are the Hilton rooms in Shinjuku? Probably not too much less than the Hilton Tokyo Bay (under $200 a night).

      Either way, in order to be online at the gate 30 to 60 minutes before the park opens, it's too much to get up that early and have to take the JR line all the way to Maihama Station. I think the extra hour of sleep is worth it if you can afford the dough.

        But the Hilton Tokyo Bay is not a Disney hotel and you see stuff that is non-Disney in there. How would staying in an offsite hotel be any different since they're all mostly brand name hotels like the Hilton or Sheraton anyways. If you wanted the full Disney experience, why not go for the Ambassador Hotel. And if you REALLY wanted to get the best experience possible, stay in one of the rooms facing Porto Paradiso in the Hotel MiraCosta. It's worth the money for the extra layer of theming and the atmosphere in my opinion. The experience of staying at the Hotel MiraCosta is incomparable!

            Mara I like to get a taste of Tokyo the city while in town,and the view of the skyscrapers at night from your hotel window is something else.Plus the Hilton onsite is charging about $150 extra a night compare to the Hilton in Shinjuku.And that money can be put to better use,plus thanks to a discount I will have 10% knocked of that price.So makes a lot more sense to get up that extra hour early.I could afford to stay at any hotel onsite,however I consider that money better spent on the actual parks,and adding on a few days in Hong Kong too,then paying top buck for a hotel close to the magic.

            Good point TDLFAN,however in 2008 I could be spending up to a year in Australia if things go acording to plan and will have sadly no time for any Disney that year.Plus I can't and don't wanna wait that long,know what I mean!

                  I believe Big Band Beat will now be staying on for longer since the Snow Queen Musical got canned.

                    We're planning to go in mid April. We're staying in Shinagawa--not sure which hotel, but there's a lot of them down there and they're all pretty much interchangable as far as I'm concerned. The plans are to visit Hiroshima, Hakone, and Disney on this trip.

                    Personally, I don't want to stay at Disney--Tokyo is too interesting, the Disney hotels too expensive, and the transportation too easy. I swear it's less trouble to take a train across Tokyo to Disney than it is to take a bus across WDW to the Magic Kingdom.

                      That is for sure.

                      As for Big band Beat... the show is not closing in March 2007 as previously stated. The replacement show "Snow Queen" has been cancelled and BBB will now play indefinitely.

                        Oops, sorry if I posted incorrect information :blush:
                        The information was from a JTB travel brochure I picked up a few days ago.

                              I think aimster wishes she could also go to TDR and thats why I suck because I will be returning next year.

                              Also is anyone else happy that the Big Band Beat will be staying on for longer now,as I love the show

                                I am very pleased BBB will stay indefinitely. Based on what I know of the replacement show, the concept was just not something that I think would NOT have been popular with the type of guests that visit TDR. Japanese guests want 'characters and more characters..' An artsy Broadway-style/play show is not what they would enjoy. I am glad they puled the plug on "Snow Queen" before it was too late, and saved the money for other endeavors.

                                  After much thinking and debating with myself plus pleading with my new bosses for time off,I have finally today booked my return trip to the Tokyo,Japan.Like last year Im going exactly the same time and while I'll be staying in Shinjuku it won't be at the Hilton but instead at the Keio Plaza hotel,which is a cheaper hotel and closer to the Shinjuku train station.My dates are 17th through to the 23rd of September 2007.I of course plan to visit both the Disney parks during my stay,and do have a question to ask.Does anyone know of the exact dates that the Halloween event starts at Tokyo Disneyland in 2007?

                                    Great advanced planning Malin. The Keio is a nice hotel and just a few minutes from my office. The Halloween events should start about the same time as this year and last...September 12 or so. They will definitely be on during the time of your visit.

                                      Thanks Joe trust me its worth planning in advance as it gives you something to look foward too in the up coming months.You must have a great view from your office thats all I can say Joe as the skyscrapers are increadible especially at night.

                                      Good to hear that the Halloween events will definitely be on during my trip as this years event was a lot of fun,and I can't wait to see what Disney and OLC have in store for us at Halloween in 2007.

                                        Have fun on your trip Malin! If we end up going in 2007 it will probably be towards the end of the year around Christmas and Oshogatsu.
