    Disney Ambassador Hotel Celebrates 10 Anniversary

    Can you believe its been 10 years already since the Resort opened its first Disney Hotel. The Disney Ambassador Hotel is offically 10 years old. Feel free to contribute photo's, Videos and memories from the last 10 years. Or maybe you just like to wish the hotel the best of luck for the next 10 years. Perhaps you have an upcoming Trip booked to stay at the Ambassador, or will be visiting the Hotel to enjoy a Restaurant like Chef Mickey. Please share

    Re: Disney Ambassador Hotel Celebrates 10 Anniversary

    thanks for sharing Malin! Disney Ambassador was the hotel we stayed at the very first time we visited TDR about 8 years ago. We stayed there 2 other times since. It is a beautiful hotel and the staff were great! One thing we never had the chance to do was tour the different floors..... we were afraid we would be in trouble!

    I will never forget our first visit, I was 6 months pregnant with our second child and our daughter was 5 at the time.... she was so excited to be there and Chef Mickey was so much fun for her to see the characters as she had her breakfast! We also brought my mom there the year after and my niece the year after that for their first experience at TDR..... it is definitely a hotel with lots of fond memories.....

    congratulations Ambassador on your 10th anniversary!

    kailona thanks for sharing the memories

    Rather disappointed to not have much of a response yet. Hope more people will come forward soon. I'm planning to visit the Zed show while I'm in town in September. So I'll try and grab a few pictures of the hotel on the way. But if anyone has any available please feel free to share.

    I still prefer the intimate feeling of this hotel to the other two.

    Re: Disney Ambassador Hotel Celebrates 10 Anniversary

    Here's the Ambassador room review part of my trip report. When I get to the part where we took pictures of all the public areas of the hotel, I'll post those too!


    Because we booked our trip basically at the last minute, I had to do a lot of finessing of our Disney resort reservations online. I made and cancelled about 6 different reservations for various combinations of date and hotel before I settled on our 3-resort hop. The Ambassador was the only hotel I could get for the Friday night of our trip, and I was kinda bummed. For some reason様ack of photos online?悠 assumed that the Ambassador would be the Paradise Pier of Tokyo Disney's resorts: a bland, basic hotel with the barest Disney overlay and chintzy amenities. Instead, we found a gleaming Art Deco masterpiece with subtle but Disney-fabulous theming and basically the same amenities as Hotel MiraCosta (although it was the first Disney hotel built in Tokyo, it's only one year older than MiraCosta, and the rooms are almost identical). Sure, it's not on the monorail (whose idea was that, BTW?!), but it is close to Ikspiari and feels just as posh as the other two Disney hotels. In fact, Patrick declared it his favorite of all three resorts.



    What made our stay even better was getting a room on the Concierge level (known as the Ambassador Floor). One day during my reservation finessing, an Ambassador Floor room popped up that was only about $40 more per night than the cheapest category of standard room. We never stay Concierge in the US because a few muffins at breakfast and a handful of truffles at dessert are not worth the $100+ surcharge per night. But breakfast at Chef Mickey's in the Ambassador would have set us back more than 40 bucks, so I jumped on the deal.

    Ee were directed to the 6th floor Ambassador Lounge to check in. When we got there, the first thing they did was seat us at a table and offer us free drinks.




    Not being a big soda drinker, I think I ordered a glass of milk and it looks like it had ice cubes in it?


    Then they had me go over to a desk and sit down with someone to check in.




    Then there was more drinking back at the table, and then someone came over with our room keys, and a woman escorted us to our room. The corridors look like those on a cruise ship, and each door has a faux porthole.

    The beds look so narrow in this pic, and I remember worrying about the size, but I don't recall them being too tight a squeeze












    We got yet another free fruit bowl擁t's a wonder poor Patrick didn't get the trots!






    This was the only Disney resort that had a desk/vanity built into the hall shelves溶ice touch!









    In addition to the standard Disney-branded toiletries, we got a set of real Shiseido toiletries and a pack of rose-scented bath beads (I'm guessing cuz we were Concierge?). I looooved my bath.









    Hmm I think I'monna bust out some of that bath gel tonight! Er, I mean, I would if I had taken some from the hotel







    "Must not steal towels. Must not steal towels"






    In case you're wondering






    Ill-fitting jammies!!!



    And what's this? Ill-fitting slippers too?!!!




    You'll see waaaaaay more of the pool in tomorrow's update, but here's how it looks at night:








    The view from our room (with zoom!)




    Something that we don't know what it is




    Boy, this is a lot of pictures Patrick must've been delirious with exhaustion at this point!

    My family had dinner at Chef Mickey's in May and it was a great experience While we didn't enjoy the food all that much, the characters were fantastic and we have some wonderful memories (and video and pics!) of them interacting with our 3 and 1yos. If I knew how to upload pics here, I would!

    Re: Disney Ambassador Hotel Celebrates 10 Anniversary

    I totally need that music album! It's the first Disney hotel music CD, well besides the Fairytale Wedding ones, but I don't count those because they are comprised of previously released Disney songs.

    Lurky, thanks for the quick photo report here. I love the PJ's! Between those, the slippers, the fruit, and amenities, it's a really nice touch. Oh, and I love how they use Disney characters from the Art Deco period in the details. Also, man, I love that Sorcerer Mickey mirror! I'll bet if you could have pried it off the wall and put it in your luggage for Patrick's uncle, you would, right? :-)
