Tokyo Disney Resort to Pilot Ticket with Proof of COVID-19 Vaccine or Negative Test Requirement from November 22-28

As Japan tries to put its constant cycle of States of Emergency behind it, Tokyo Disney Resort has announced that they will pilot sales of a special ticket to be sold to Guests who can show proof of COVID-19 vaccination or a recent negative test later this month. This will be a test for Japan’s forthcoming vaccine passport system, which is expected to be introduced before the end of the year, according to the Oriental Land Company.


Starting Monday, November 15, a special ticket will be on sale for dates November 22-28 that admits Guests to either Tokyo Disneyland or Tokyo DisneySea starting at 12:00 p.m. Guests over age 12 using this ticket must present a proof that two weeks have passed since their second COVID-19 vaccination, proof of a negative PCR test taken within three days, or a negative antigen test from within 24 hours along with identification that shows their name and date of birth. Physical copies or photos on smartphones will be accepted for certificates, but not for identification documents.

While this is merely a test, these conditions for entry are expected to roll out to all Guests sometime in the near future as Japan ramps up its efforts to adopt vaccine passports and restart the economy once and for all. Nearly 75% of the Japanese population is vaccinated according to Oxford University, among the highest rates in the world. We can only hope that these measures allow capacity to increase to the point where seasonal events and full entertainment slates can return to the parks, as some shows and virtually all seasonal events are still missing. A vaccine passport requirement at Tokyo Disney Resort would make them the second, after Disneyland Paris, to implement such a requirement.
