How to Go to Tokyo Disneyland and DisneySea
Now, I’ll guide you through the best routes to Tokyo Disneyland and DisneySea, whether you’re departing from Shinjuku, Haneda, or Narita.
This includes details on travel times and costs, helping you plan effectively to save both time and money.
Let’s dive in now to make your journey to these fun-filled parks easy and exciting!
1. From Shinjuku to Disney
From Shinjuku Station, take the JR Chuo Line to Tokyo Station. Then, transfer to the JR Keiyo Line to Maihama Station. From Maihama, exit via the South Exit and walk for about 5 minutes to reach Tokyo Disneyland. The total travel time is about 45 minutes, and the one-way trip costs 410 yen.
To reach DisneySea, simply walk to the Resort Gateway Station from the South Exit of Maihama Station. From there, board the Disney Resort Monorail, which will take you to Tokyo DisneySea Station in just 9 minutes for a fare of 260 yen.
2. From Haneda Airport to Disney (3 Methods)
i. By Bus
From the first floor of Haneda Airport, take the Airport Limousine Bus to Tokyo Disneyland. You can board the bus at Bus Stop No. 5 in Terminal 3. The journey takes roughly 25 minutes, and a one-way ticket costs 1,000 yen for adults and 500 yen for children.
Boarding locations for the airport bus to DisneySea are the same as for Disneyland, and the fare is identical. The only difference is that you need to alight at Tokyo DisneySea upon arrival.
The Airport Limousine Bus departs from Haneda Airport and makes its first stop at Tokyo Disneyland before continuing to Tokyo DisneySea.
This is an easy and affordable way to travel to Disney Park because it will take you directly there.
ii. By Train
From Haneda Airport, take the Tokyo Monorail to Hamamatsucho Station. Transfer to the JR Yamanote Line to Tokyo Station, then switch to the JR Keiyo or Musashino Line to Maihama Station. Use the South Exit at Maihama for a 5-minute walk to Tokyo Disneyland. The journey takes approximately 65 minutes, costing 900 yen one-way.
To visit DisneySea, first make your way to the Resort Gateway Station from Maihama Station. Next, board the Disney Resort Monorail to Tokyo DisneySea Station. The travel time is approximately 9 minutes, and the fare is 260 yen.
iii. By Private Car Transfer
The easiest way to get to Tokyo Disneyland or DisneySea is by private car, providing a stress-free journey as you relax and await your arrival.
This service is great for families, older adults, or groups with lots of luggage, making the trip comfortable and easy. Check the transfer pricing here.
3. From Narita Airport to Disney (3 Options)
i. By Bus
From Narita Airport, board the Airport Limousine Bus to Tokyo Disneyland at Bus Stop No. 10 in Terminal 1 or Bus Stop No. 17 in Terminal 2. The journey typically takes about 66 minutes, with a one-way fare of 1,900 yen for adults and 950 yen for children.
This is the best way to travel there, as it provides a direct airport bus service from Narita Airport to both Tokyo Disneyland and DisneySea.
At all terminals, the bus boarding location is at Level 1 of the arrival hall.
Terminal 1 – Bus Stop No. 10 for Disney
Terminal 2 – Bus Stop No. 17 for Disney
ii. By Train
The second option is you can board the Keisei Skyliner train from Narita Airport. But you need to transfer trains 2 times before reaching Disneyland. For me, this is not the good way to reach there. If you plan to take a train to Disneyland, here’s a guide for you.

- Switch to the JR Yamanote Line bound for Tokyo Station.
- Transfer to the JR Keiyo/Musashino Line to Maihama Station, using the South Exit.
- Walk about 5 minutes to Tokyo Disneyland.

The final option is a private car transfer, offering a direct and stress-free journey to Tokyo Disneyland or DisneySea.
This service is especially suitable for groups, families with children, or elderly travelers with big luggage. You can check the private car transfer price here.
