So how can one plan a trip to Tokyo, and leave out magical Tokyo Disneyland? You can’t! So here are the ultimate tips to planning the perfect Tokyo Disneyland trip!

How to Get There?

If you’re wondering how to travel from Chiba to Tokyo Disneyland, you’ve got three options: by car/taxi, bus, or train. The faster option would be to take a taxi, or you could rent a car and drive yourself, which would be way cheaper. You can ask your hotel to help you out with this.

The bus is also an economical option, and you will be able to get off right at the entrance. Alternatively, you could also take the train. The main gate of the park is situated directly opposite both the Maihama Station and Tokyo Disneyland Station.

Here's Your Muslim Visitor Guide To Tokyo, Japan

Where to Pray and Eat?

An essential part of the ultimate Tokyo Disney trip planning guide for Muslims would be to plan where you can pray and what you can eat.

Prayer Facilities at Tokyo Disneyland

We got our travel-sized prayer mats from Takva!

Not to worry, as there are prayer rooms available inside Tokyo Disneyland, so you can take a break from all the fun rides to pray and have a bit of a rest. But as there is no designated room, you will have to ask the staff at the information desks, and they will be glad to arrange the room for you. Don't forget to bring along your own travel-sized prayer garments and prayer mats! To get your Qibla, simply look into the HalalTrip App!

There are no Halal-certified restaurants at Tokyo Disneyland, but you should be able to find seafood and vegetarian options at some of the restaurants like the Eastside Cafe, Pan Galactic Pizza Port, and Captain Hook's Gallery. However, always make sure to check with the staff about individual menu items. A good tip for visiting Tokyo Disneyland is to bring your own Halal food, which you can eat at the picnic areas of the park.

The park also offer services for guests with 'Special Dietary Limitations' where guests can request to use the microwaves within the park itself. Refer here for more information.

More Tips for Visiting Tokyo Disneyland

1. Book Your Ticket in Advance

The queues here are endless, with the thousands of visitors that the park hosts every day; so number one on your trip planning guide to Tokyo Disneyland would be to get your ticket in advance. You can get your ticket at a number of places like the Shinagawa Station, or you could book your e-ticket online through the website. If you're a little more anxious, get your tickets at the airport that you are departing from. Airports like Changi Airport Singapore has booths where you can purchase your theme park tickets even before your departure.

2. Get a FASTPASS Ticket

Your second tip to planning the perfect Tokyo Disneyland trip also involves queues. You’ll find that many of the attractions have long lines, you can save a bit of time by getting the FASTPASS tickets.

What are FASTPASS tickets? These tickets are similar to reservation tickets that are issued at machines that are available right next to the rides. FASTPASS tickets give you a specific time when you can go on the ride, so you can explore the park and return at the designated times. (Make sure to get to the park really early, like an hour before it opens, because even FASTPASS tickets tend to run out really soon.)

3. Bring Along Snacks

Are you getting the theme here? Queues! It’s better to bring your own food and snacks, as you’ll be spending most of your time queuing up at the restaurants and snack shops, precious time that you could be using to have fun!

4. Consider Getting a Multi-Day Passport

Disney tourist blogs will tell you that one day is not enough to cover the entire two parks, and they would be right. If you are interested, you could get the multi-day passport (which would be cheaper than buying 1-day passports twice or thrice). Or for the ultimate Tokyo Disneyland trip planning guide, consider a one or two-night stay at one of the Disneyland resort hotels.

5. Rent a Stroller for the Little One
