When you visit Tokyo Disney Resort, you might want to use your phone to check on waiting times, or just share your experience with friends and family via Social Media. It is good to know that Tokyo Disney Resort does not offer Wi-Fi connection at the park.
No Wi-Fi at Tokyo Disney Resort
As there is no Wi-Fi at the Tokyo Disney Resort, you have to look at other options to connect.
Ikspiari – Shopping Center
You can visit the nearby shopping area Ikspiari. Several business within the shopping area and the shopping area itself over complimentary Wi-fi. Often you do have to sign-in and/or receive a text message. While this is not ideal. We were able to get it to work and used it for a bit. Your mileage may vary while trying to connect.
Roaming using your mobile plan
While you can use your personal mobile plan to roam in Japan while you visit Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea, it is advised to check the roaming charges before using this. It could be that using your mobile could be more expensive than the trip itself.
Using a local Sim card
A good option is to get a Visitor SIM from bMobile. bMobile doesn’t have stores, but you have the sim card shipped to the hotel, your home address or even pick it up at an airport. The Visitor plan bMobile offers is 5Gb that can be used for 21 days which will cost you ¥3,480 (which equals to about 27 euros or 32 dollars). When you run out of data, you can even recharge it. For more information and how to order, visit the bMobile website.
Wi-Fi at the Tokyo Disney Resort Hotels
The Tokyo Disney Resort Hotels do offer Wi-fi in guest rooms and public areas throughout the hotel:
- Disney Ambassador Hotel
- Tokyo DisneySea Hotel MiraCosta
- Tokyo Disneyland Hotel
- Tokyo Disney Celebration Hotel (read our review)
Connecting to the Wi-fi network in the hotel wasn’t hard, but the connection was not really stable. During the evening when we tried to upload some photos, the connection would drop frequently which made we switch back to roaming via my Project Fi sim card.
