Helpful tips

As you can see, Tokyo Disneyland is a popular and often crowded tourist site thus it is not uncommon to see long lines in front of their most popular rides and attractions.

The waiting time suggested above is just an average thus, it can be less during off-peak days, or can be more especially during holidays.

There are, however, a few tips for you to combat the long lines.

The first tip is to download the real-time waiting time update from Tokyo Disneyland website to get up-to-date information for your target rides.

Though you can issue one FASTPASS at a time, combining this along with a good planning, you can enjoy this enormous park efficiently, as there are many rides and attractions you don’t have to wait for.

I hope you have a great time in Tokyo Disneyland!
