    Re: Question about the Hilton Tokyo Bay

    Thanks for the Hyperdia tip! I'm accustomed to the constantly-running New York City subway system, so the early final departures for a few of the rail lines was a bit jarring. Hopefully I'll get to Maihama before the final monorail and/or cruiser departs.

    As for the Hilton, I ended up getting the best price directly from their website. I found cheaper nightly rates on Orbitz and Expedia, but with the final taxes and charges, the Hilton site still gave me the best price. There's a great Any Weekend, Anywhere deal going on that got me a Celebrio room for about $165 a night.

      Thanks for your response about the Hilton! That is kind of what I was finding, too, in regards to the best deals coming from their own website, but what to ask if anyone had gotten a better deal elsewhere.

      You know, it occured to me last night that even though they don't run Limosine busses that late to the TDL resort, I just checked and they do have a Limosine bus from Narita that departs at 9:00pm that will drop you directly at the main Tokyo Station and from there, that is a fairly quick ride to Maihama. When we last flew into Narita, once you come out of customs, you are essentially right at all the transportation counters. You would just be cutting it close arriving at 8:30. In regard to resort transportation, the monorail runs right up until around midnight and the website says the cruisers stop around 11:30.

        Just so you know...

        The Limosine Bus drops you off accross the street from Tokyo Station on the Yaesu side. It is a pretty good walk from the bus stop to the Keiyo/Musashino Line platforms. I'd say maybe 10-15 minutes with luggage in tow.

        Also, if you are not familiar with Tokyo Station, the Keiyo/Musashino platform is the deepest underground and you have to go down three levels. This is not always easy to do with luggage. You probably want to find where the elevators are if you have large bags.

          This part is true. I've had to navigate the Tokyo station with 2 toddlers, suitcases, and a stroller and sometimes finding an elevator that goes from the correct floor to another is quite a challenge. We often found ourselves throwing up our hands and either going up and down stairs with the stroller or making the kids jump out of the stroller and taking the escalator. We would give ourselves about 20 minutes to get from where we got off our train to find the Keiyo line. Once we started seeing the Disney posters, we knew we were heading in the right direction.

            Re: Question about the Hilton Tokyo Bay

            For those of you who have stayed at the resort before, I have two more questions.
            My flight departs on a Wednesday at 8:40PM. I know check out time is 12PM. Does the regular Hilton policy of holding bags at the front desk apply here?

            I was hoping to head into Disney Sea for the day and having the bags kept at the front desk would be ideal!

            This final question is so incredibly specific and if no one has an answer, I totally understand. I was planning on buying my park tickets online via the official website, which would require me to pick them up from the Ticket Center. However, the Ticket Center opens at 8AM and so do the parks, so we won't be able to start the morning off in the stampede. The Hilton ticket desk probably doesn't open up earlier than 8, right?

              The website for the Tokyo Disney Official Hotels say one of the benefits is being able to leave your luggage with the hotel and then you can pick it up at the Welcome Center, but I do believe that may only be until 5pm (according to the website). I'm going to say that I bet you could have them just hold your luggage and let you retrieve it later that day OR there are rather large lockers available for use located directly under the monorail stations. This would save you having to go back to the hotel to retrieve your bags.

              I'm curious, is there a perk to buying your tickets online? If not, otherwise I would just wait until I get there and purchase tickets from the hotel the night before you plan to enter the parks or even day of arrival. Oh, but that's right, you are getting in kind of late the night before. Well, the website says the ticket booths at the parks are open 1 hour before the park opens. So, another option may be to try and be one of the first people in line at the ticket booth, get your ticket, and then jump in the line for the turnstiles. When we were there in December, an hour prior to park opening, the line to get INTO THE PARK (not those in line for tickets) wasn't too bad and if you are traveling solo -- and not pushing a stroller like myself -- you should be able to cover a lot of ground quickly.

              I'm excited for you! Makes me want to go back, even though we were just there.

                Re: Question about the Hilton Tokyo Bay

                I got into contact with the Hilton yesterday and they were able to provide some answers:
                -They DO provide bag-holding services at the front desk. Free of charge, too!
                -The Disney ticket window at the Hilton is open from 7AM-9PM and has the same prices as the parks.

                The only perk I see to purchasing them online is that you're "reserving" your attendance for the day. I'll be heading to the parks in the four days following the very popular Golden Week, so I'm a little weary that the parks might sell-out, but that could just be me being paranoid. Anyone know if that's common?

                Thanks Liz! I'm traveling with one of my friends, so one of us could wait in the turnstile line and then the other could go to the ticket booth and buy two passes. That could work if the hotel booth doesn't! Plus, I have a slight advantage too during the stampede because I have long legs and ample experience navigating New York City commuter/tourist madness!
