My fiancee and I are heading out to Tokyo Disney for the 1st time in early December and I've got lots of questions. Any help/suggestions would be greatly appreciated-
This is our 1st trip to Tokyo, and we've got NO IDEA how to get around the city. I know rail is their primary transport and I know it's relatively easy to get to the Resort from most areas around Tokyo. Neither of us speaks Japanese, but I've heard that they're usually accomodating and communication is easy. So here are the questions-
#1. Hotels in areas not near the resort seem MUCH cheaper (Im willing to spend $150-$200 on a nice hotel, but the on property hotels are steeper than that). I would like it to be easy to get to and from the resort via bus or rail (10 or 15 mins travel time each way), any suggestions?
#2. We'd like to see the city/landmarks as well, is there any easy way to make sense of the mess of rail lines there and use them easily? Any good tour companies that speak English would help too.
#3. Plane fares tend to be running around $1100 - $1500 per person flying from where we live (Orlando) for the week of Dec 9 - 16, it looks pretty standard but are there any deals I should know about? (besides the obvious "check expedia, travelocity and orbitz" ) Im really not sure if these are ordinary fares, good deals or a complete rip off, I've never flown outside the US...
We'd like to keep costs under $5000 for a week long trip, here is my makeshift budget so far-
$1200 X 2 Plane Tickets = $2400
$150 X 6 Hotel Nights = $900
$200 X 2 Misc Transportation = $400
$150 X 2 Disney Magic 4 Day = $300
$60 X 7 Days Food = approx $400
Total - $4400
We'd be spending the rest on day trips into the city (maybe going to a few other theme parks too) And the rest is MERCH!- which is why I need to keep costs down everywhere else
