Tokyo Disneyland Resort Pictures
The text list below contains the captions of all images in the set.
9:00am - Onboard the resort line and passing over the Tokyo DisneySea bus parking lot. Cones celebrating the 40th anniversary of the resort.
Only a few buses in the lot at the moment. We noticed they would drop people off then leave.
The park was just opening for the day. Lines filled about half the plaza.
No lines after security to enter the park.
We walked out to the overlook at the Resort Line station of the park entrance. Below park guests were moving quickly toward Mediterranean Harbor.
The Hotel Mira Costa
40th Anniversary decorations over the entrance.
The 40th Anniversary Resort Liner approaching
The line on the other side matched what we saw from the Monorail.
A closer look at the 40th Anniversary Dream-Go-Round wrapped Resort Liner.
The layering of detail at the park entrance and Hotel Mira Costa is incredible.
The Tokyo DisneySea picnic area below.
The front of the Hotel Mira Costa is being renovated.
It was raining so a look at the back side of the fountain.
A quick look around the lobby this morning.
Some 40th anniversary decorations hung around the lobby
The Tokyo DisneySea entrance from the hotel is closed until 10am.
A look into the park this morning.
Stopped by the gift shop
Back to the lobby for a couple pictures before leaving.
The security lines were still long as we walked back to the Resort Line Station
The park entry lines were too now.
The Tokyo DisneySea Resort Line Station
Since were not in a hurry a train was arriving as we reached the platform.
A look backstage from the Monorail.
The Disney Ambassador Hotel
We stayed on board to the Disneyland Station.
Looking across Disneyland toward the hotels and Fantasy Springs Construction.
9:40am - The security line at Disneyland was not as spread out as DisneySea. It is in a large corral on this side. This was 40 minutes after park opening.
The Tokyo Disneyland entrance. This has been redone since my last visit in 2018.
The security line on the other side stretched back toward the parking structure.
The Resort Line station was quiet.
The security line from ground level.
Walked through Disneyland Hotel including a visit to the gift shop.
And the lobby.

Back on the resort line and heading out again.
The security line below.
Passing over the Tokyo Disneyland bus parking area.
Work is going on at the bus stops, they have been rebuilt.
This construction site behind Tomorrowland is for the new Space Mountain project.
There is also 40th cone art in this parking lot.
Looking toward Fantasy Springs
The Fantasy Springs Hotel
After a brief stop on our way again.
10:10am - All quiet at the DisneySea entrance now.
The Resort Liner was not crowded now, so a look around the interior of one of the recently added liners.
The new type have doors between the cars.
Arriving a the Resort Gateway Station
The JR Maihama Station
A Starbucks is at the station now replacing the former coffee shop.
Ikspiari advertising the B&B production and upcoming Little Mermaid film.
The Toy Story Monorail passing by.
McDonalds has moved into the ground level of Ikspiari since my last visit.
We looked around at some of the menus to see if anything jumped out at us for lunch.
No more paper maps, instead QR codes to load the website.
TFI Friday's is still in business on the top level.
An Outback and Red Lobster opened by the Disney Store
The Disney Store is celebrating its 30th Anniversary.
Found this interesting. A display with Walt Disney World merchandise. The Disney Store is owned by Disney so you will not find Tokyo Disney park items, but you will find some random domestic items.
Walt Disney World 50th mugs
The candy store is celebrating Mother's day
Outside the Rain Forest Cafe
11:00am - The line for the Rain Forest Cafe
Walked over to the Disney Ambassador Hotel
I always enjoy looking at this display
Some special 40th offerings in the lounge
40th Anniversary decorations in the lobby
Raining outside as we made our way back.
It was coming down pretty hard by this point and we were happy with our decision not to go sightseeing or to the park today.
Our Monorail arriving at the Resort Gateway Station
The rain was really coming down so no good pictures on the way back to Bayside Station.
This was interesting to me. The Toy Story Hotel does not have a shuttle bus. It does have the shortest walk since it is directly across the street.
The current Resort Cruiser buses are more bus like and less interesting than the fleet they replaced.
Stopped by the lounge to see what their snack offerings are.
The drink area included a selection of Coke products, coffee, and juices.
The snack selection
In addition to the jars were these offerings.
2:15pm - After hanging out in the lounge then room time to venture back out to find some food.
The photo still uses the previous shuttle on the picture.
The Toy Story Hotel from Bayside station
Really quite mid afternoon at Bayside Station
Another look at the Fantasy Springs Hotel work.
At Tokyo DisneySea Station it was quiet too.
We ended up at TGI Friday's.. since no one wanted a big meal. Here is the chicken fingers
It was drizzling out but we decided to head for Bon Voyage.
Inside it was crowded, being mid afternoon on a Saturday so I did not take many pictures.
The rain let up slightly so we decided to walk to the Disneyland Station to catch the Monorail. A 40th Anniversary banner.
Back at the Hilton. There are two glass elevators looking at the atrium. Here is the view as we headed back up to our room to call it a night.
A map of my travels. You an see where the GPS lost track of me and jumped across the parks vs going around them.
Looking over at the Toy Story Hotel as the sun was setting.
The entrance to the Fantasy Springs Hotel had most its lights on.
Cinderella Castle this evening
A couple more Toy Story Hotel pictures
8:32pm - No fireworks this evening.
A final look outside before calling it a night.
