Time to be at the gates and where to purchase 1 Day Pass?

Our scheduled dates for Disney Sea is on Tues, May 28 and Disneyland on Wed, May 29. The crowd predictor website indicates about 18K at Disney Sea and 22K at Disneyland for those days.

Given this, what time should we be at both gates before the 9am opening?

My DH and DS will join me and DD at DisneySea only. Where can we buy their 1 Day Pass and our 2 Day Pass in Tokyo? We are staying at the New Sanno.

Thank you.

The crowd prediction for those days is not crowded but it's always good to get there early to take advantage of FP. An hour before would be really good because it takes time for the lines of people to get through the gates which can cost you a pretty good amount of time. You can buy tickets online and print it at home or I think the Disney Store also sells tickets but I'm not completely sure so you should double check to make sure.

This is the site for e-tickets: https://reservation.tokyodisneyresor...p/vm/index.jsp

Thank you. The online site is in Japanese - is there an English site?

The e-ticket is not available in English yet but I looked and you can order the tickets online in English and since you live in Japan they will send the tickets to your home.

Here is the English website!

Thanks but we don't live in Japan. We will be arriving late May 26. We will visit Meiji Shrine, Shibuya and Shinjuku area the next day and will look for a Disney Store in those areas.

Based on my research, there is a Disney Store in Takashimaya in Shinjuku so we may end up buying there.

On such a low day, you are probably safe 45 minutes in advance. However, anyone used to the rather familiar DL (as opposed to DS) doesn't have to sweat it too much... you can always see everything you want with judicious use of FP.

Just remember, Indiana Jones and Splash Mountain almost always have single rider, and in Japan that is amazingly fast and you'll probably get to sit together anyway.

Thank you Shelemm. Indiana Jones is one of my favorite rides so that's good to know!

Based on the DS calendar Journey will be down on the day of our visit :-(

Thanks again, I have already cut and paste details of your post.

"DS Got FPs for TOT while we waited for Storm Rider (9:30am FP for 2:20pm entry)" - why was there a 5 hour gap?

"why was there a 5 hour gap?"

The answer should be obvious, but here goes:

FPs are to use for a one-hour time slot. The slot you receive is the first one available at the time you get the FP. For an attraction that is popular, that might be 5 hours OR MORE in advance. In some case, they run out of FPs completely.

So if we went to TOT when the park first opened, maybe I would have written it like this:

Got FP for TOT (8:30am for 9:30am entry)

But we didn't do that first thing, so by the time 9:30am rolled around, all the earlier FP times were already distributed. Instead we got FPs for use at 2:20pm. 2:20pm being the earliest we could enter. We were not obligated to be there at that time, we could have waited until 3:20pm.

Does that make it clear?
