PHOTOS, VIDEO: Tour a Standard Superior Alcove Room with Park View at Tokyo Disneyland Hotel

When you visit Tokyo Disney Resort, just across from the entrance to the Kingdom of Dreams and Magic you can find the Tokyo Disneyland Hotel. We had the chance to stay in a Standard Superior Alcove Room with Park View room. So join us for a tour of these newly-refurbished guest rooms!

Hotel Exterior & Gardens

Tokyo Disneyland Hotel Standard Superior Park View Room Tour 7064

For you Americans and others out there, Tokyo Disneyland Hotel is similar to Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa in architecture and style, taking inspiration from the early 20th-century Victorian style as an extension of World Bazaar across the street. It opened in 2008 as part of the resort’s 25th Anniversary celebration.

The exterior was just repainted over the course of two years, looking fresh as a daisy once more!

There are two entrances — one facing the city and highways for car and express bus access, and one facing the park and the Disney Resort Line for guests coming by public transit.

Character topiaries like Goofy flank the hotel entrance.

At night, the hotel, right behind Tokyo Disneyland Station, is lit up.

Tokyo Disneyland Hotel Standard Superior Park View Room Tour 7273

It’s such a natural architectural fit that you’d never know the station was added seven years before the hotel! This all used to be the parking lot for Tokyo Disneyland from 1983 to 2005.

As previously mentioned, the other side of the hotel is built for accommodating guests in vehicles. Cars and buses pull under the porte-cochère.

It’s surrounded by fountains and foliage. Like Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, the roof is lined with lights to highlight the hotel’s outline.

There is an “Alice in Wonderland”-themed garden, featuring these topiaries of playing card symbols.

Benches feature the Tokyo Disneyland Hotel logo in gold on their arms.

A large “Fantasia”-inspired fountain has a Sorcerer Mickey statue atop a spiral of rocks. Similar fountains exist at Walt Disney Studios Park in Paris and at Hong Kong Disneyland.

Water shots into the fountain from all around, including from bucket-shaped spouts held by brooms.

Now let’s head inside.

Lobby & Halls

Tokyo Disneyland Hotel Standard Superior Park View Room Tour 7269

Around every entrance is a plaque bearing the hotel’s name along with silhouettes of Mickey and Minnie.

Statues of Mickey and Minnie in their Tokyo Disneyland Hotel-specific costumes flank the bus-side entrance.

Tokyo Disneyland Hotel Standard Superior Park View Room Tour 7293

In the lobby sits a very ornate Victorian dollhouse, which brings to mind “Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends” if you ask me.

Other references are visible throughout, from a bathing Ariel to the Magic Carpet from Aladdin, and even a replica of Jane and Michael’s room from “Mary Poppins!”

Disney characters make some cameos, including Lady and the Tramp, and Scamp’s in there too.

Alice takes center stage in this beautiful mosaic.

Tokyo Disneyland Hotel Standard Superior Park View Room Tour 7233

Like the Grand Floridian, we also have a birdcage elevator — but it goes all the way up our hotel!

Tokyo Disneyland Hotel Standard Superior Park View Room Tour 7219
Tokyo Disneyland Hotel Standard Superior Park View Room Tour 7220

Every floor has a different character in the stained glass window pattern at the elevator bank. Ours had Goofy.

Tokyo Disneyland Hotel Standard Superior Park View Room Tour 7216

The elevator banks open up into this central vestibule, from which hallways branch out in all directions.

Tokyo Disneyland Hotel Standard Superior Park View Room Tour 7215

The walls feature printed decals of Disney animals.

Tokyo Disneyland Hotel Standard Superior Park View Room Tour 7213

Light fixtures in the halls have little Mickey Mouse heads on top.

Tokyo Disneyland Hotel Standard Superior Park View Room Tour 7071

The wall art continues up here, with the citizens of World Bazaar skating on the moat around Cinderella Castle during winter. If only it actually got cold enough for that in Tokyo!

Some prints also feature Belle and the Beast.

These rooms were newly refurbished in 2020 to help modernize the hotel, with new wallpaper and carpeting installed as well as some equipment upgrades.

Tokyo Disneyland Hotel Standard Superior Park View Room Tour 7091

The transom above the bathroom features subtle Mickey silhouettes.

Tokyo Disneyland Hotel Standard Superior Park View Room Tour 7093

Across from the bathroom is a vanity with an incredibly large mirror.

Tokyo Disneyland Hotel Standard Superior Park View Room Tour 7094
Tokyo Disneyland Hotel Standard Superior Park View Room Tour 7095

The hotel’s insignia is atop the mirror.

Tokyo Disneyland Hotel Standard Superior Park View Room Tour 7097

On the desk itself is a very ornate pattern with a Mickey silhouette at the very center.

Tokyo Disneyland Hotel Standard Superior Park View Room Tour 7098

Like many Japanese hotels, the restrooms at the Tokyo Disneyland Hotel separate the toilet from the shower and bath area. The sink is located directly between the two.

Tokyo Disneyland Hotel Standard Superior Park View Room Tour 7099

The traditional Japanese way to clean oneself is to shower and scrub the dirt off yourself before relaxing in a bath, already clean. Thus the shower is separated from the bathtub.

Tokyo Disneyland Hotel Standard Superior Park View Room Tour 7100

Japanese bathtubs are quite deep as a result of this tradition, making it a perfect place to soak after a long day at the park.

Tokyo Disneyland Hotel Standard Superior Park View Room Tour 7101

Soap, shampoo, and conditioner are kept in separate and reusable bottles.

Tokyo Disneyland Hotel Standard Superior Park View Room Tour 7102
Tokyo Disneyland Hotel Standard Superior Park View Room Tour 7103

The towels are also embossed with the hotel insignia.

Tokyo Disneyland Hotel Standard Superior Park View Room Tour 7104

An opaque window looks out into the bedroom area.

Tokyo Disneyland Hotel Standard Superior Park View Room Tour 7105
Tokyo Disneyland Hotel Standard Superior Park View Room Tour 7106

There is both a handheld shower attachment and an overhead waterfall-style shower head.

Tokyo Disneyland Hotel Standard Superior Park View Room Tour 7107

The shower room door is opaque.

Tokyo Disneyland Hotel Standard Superior Park View Room Tour 7108

The sink is stuffed with amenities.

Tokyo Disneyland Hotel Standard Superior Park View Room Tour 7109

The mirror is less ornate than that of the vanity across the hall.

Tokyo Disneyland Hotel Standard Superior Park View Room Tour 7111

Four glasses sit on coasters to the left.

Tokyo Disneyland Hotel Standard Superior Park View Room Tour 7112

To the right is a tray full of disposable hotel-specific amenities, including four toothbrush kits, a plastic cup for rinsing, and an “amenity kit.”

Tokyo Disneyland Hotel Standard Superior Park View Room Tour 7113

Some kids’ toothbrushes and a box of tissues sit in one drawer.

Tokyo Disneyland Hotel Standard Superior Park View Room Tour 7114
Tokyo Disneyland Hotel Standard Superior Park View Room Tour 7115

Below the sink is a small wheeled cart with even more space for storing your care products.

Tokyo Disneyland Hotel Standard Superior Park View Room Tour 7116

There’s also a little step stool for kids.

Tokyo Disneyland Hotel Standard Superior Park View Room Tour 7117

Hand towels out here also bear the resort’s insignia.

Tokyo Disneyland Hotel Standard Superior Park View Room Tour 7119

The toilet comes equipped with a bidet.

Tokyo Disneyland Hotel Standard Superior Park View Room Tour 7120

The controls are written only in Japanese, but are fairly intuitive.

Tokyo Disneyland Hotel Standard Superior Park View Room Tour 7121

Next to the vanity in the hall sits a small closet.

Tokyo Disneyland Hotel Standard Superior Park View Room Tour 7122

The green, white, and red rose and bird carpet pattern was installed in 2020 to make guests feel as if they were sleeping in a garden.

Tokyo Disneyland Hotel Standard Superior Park View Room Tour 7123

The closet contains an extra pillow and blanket, a paper bag for the hotel, a shoe horn, and four sets of disposable slippers.

Tokyo Disneyland Hotel Standard Superior Park View Room Tour 7124

The slippers have special Tokyo Disneyland Hotel designs. Two adult sets feature the straw hat Mickey from “The Nifty Nineties”, while the smaller children’s sized orange set bears the Tokyo Disneyland Hotel logo.

A small dry bar is in place between the closet and the bedroom for making tea.

Tokyo Disneyland Hotel Standard Superior Park View Room Tour 7127

A kettle and an ice bucket are included, as well as tea cups and some provided tea.

Tokyo Disneyland Hotel Standard Superior Park View Room Tour 7129

On the walls hangs sketches that bring to mind the humanoid characters from the 2017 “Beauty and the Beast” live-action remake.

Tokyo Disneyland Hotel Standard Superior Park View Room Tour 7131

More glasses wait in the drawer below.

Tokyo Disneyland Hotel Standard Superior Park View Room Tour 7132

There’s also a small mini-fridge with complimentary bottles of water.

Tokyo Disneyland Hotel Standard Superior Park View Room Tour 7133

Mirrors, mirrors everywhere! A third mirror sits across from the dry bar.

Here is the bedroom area. According to the hotel website, these beds are “twin” size beds. Although they are definitely larger than an American twin bed, it would surely be a tight squeeze for two adults.

tokyo alcove room23

Above the bed is some lovely artwork depicting Mickey and Minnie having a “turn of the century” picnic, along with Pluto, Chip & Dale, and various greenery.

tokyo alcove room37

An end table stands between the beds, with a phone and clock sitting on top.

Tokyo Disneyland Hotel Standard Superior Park View Room Tour 7164

The notepad is kept in a leather case embossed with the hotel’s insignia. A generic red pen is included.

Tokyo Disneyland Hotel Standard Superior Park View Room Tour 7165

Inside we have a hotel directory and a notepad.

Tokyo Disneyland Hotel Standard Superior Park View Room Tour 7166

Each Cast Member who prepares the room leaves behind a small card with their name on it.

Tokyo Disneyland Hotel Standard Superior Park View Room Tour 7167

The rather outdated-looking clock can also control the lights in the room. Labels for this are in English.

Tokyo Disneyland Hotel Standard Superior Park View Room Tour 7168

Complimentary postcards themed to the hotel as well as Duffy & Friends are included in the drawer.

This recessed alcove is the star of the show in this room. It provides an additional bed that allows this room type to accommodate up to four guests without additional charge.

tokyo alcove room33

Underneath the alcove bed, there are two drawers for storage, and there is some extra bedding as well.

If you look closely, you’ll find a hidden Mickey in the wallpaper design.

Near the window, there is a sitting area with two chairs and a table. Atop the table are two reuseable bags you can keep as a gift.

The artwork on one side of the bag shows Mickey and Minnie in front of the Tokyo Disneyland Hotel, while the reverse side has the hotel logo.

Park View

One of the perks of this room is the view.

tokyo alcove room42

While Tokyo DisneySea Hotel MiraCosta may be part of the park itself, the views out of the Tokyo Disneyland Hotel are just about as stunning.

tokyo alcove room38

Outside the window is a vista of the resort’s icons. We can see the entrance of the park, of course, as well as Cinderella Castle, the spires of Tomorrowland, Space Mountain, the Beast’s Castle, Big Thunder Mountain, and Splash Mountain.
