There are many hotels near Tokyo Disneyland and Sea, so it is difficult to decide where to stay.
My family lives in Tokyo, so we don’t have many opportunities to stay after Disney, but this time we stayed at the Hilton Tokyo Bay.
So this time, I’ll be sharing my review of the Hilton Tokyo Bay.
If you are wondering which hotel to choose, this article will help you decide.

What is the Hilton Tokyo Bay?
The Hilton Tokyo Bay is one of the official hotels of Tokyo Disney Resort.
It is a long-established hotel that opened four years after the opening of Tokyo Disneyland.
There are 828 guest rooms, and the building is shaped like a Japanese fan.
The nearest station is Bayside Station on the Disney Resort Line.
Next to the Hilton Tokyo Bay, you’ll find the Tokyo Disney Resort Toy Story Hotel, opening on April 5.
How to check in at Hilton Tokyo Bay
Check-in at the Hilton Tokyo Bay can be done at the hotel front desk, but I recommend the Tokyo Disney Resort Welcome Center located at JR Maihama Station.
The Welcome Center is open from 8 a.m., so when you arrive at JR Maihama Station, go straight to the Welcome Center to check-in.
At the Hilton Tokyo Bay reception desk in the Welcome Center, you can also leave your baggage during the check-in process.
They will carry your checked luggage to your room, so you can start playing at the park as soon as you drop off your luggage.
Access from Hilton Tokyo Bay to the Park
Getting from your hotel to the Disney parks is important so that you don’t waste any time.
The Hilton Tokyo Bay has a free shuttle bus, but it does not go to Tokyo Disneyland or Sea.
The hotel shuttle bus is bound for Bayside Station on the Disney Resort Line, so you will have to take the monorail to the park.
If you take the hotel’s shuttle bus to Bayside Station, you’re only two stops away from Tokyo Disneyland and one stop away from Tokyo DisneySea.
The most economical and least walking way to get to the parks is to take the Resort Line to the parks.
If you take a cab to the park, it takes about 10 minutes to Tokyo Disneyland and about 5 minutes to Tokyo DisneySea.
For the fare, if you are paying in cash, you should have 1,500 yen ready.
By the way, it’s only a 3-minute walk from the hotel to Bayside Station on the resort line, so you don’t have to take the bus.
Access from JR Maihama Station to Hilton Tokyo Bay
There is also a shuttle bus (free of charge) connecting the Hilton Tokyo Bay and JR Maihama Station.
It’s a bit of a walk from Maihama Station, but if you’re going to Tokyo Disneyland, Bon Voyage, or Ikspiari, you may also want to take the shuttle bus to JR Maihama Station.
Guest Rooms at Hilton Tokyo Bay
There are three room types at Hilton Tokyo Bay.
- Hilton Room
- Happy Magic Room
The Hilton Room is a room that has been in use since the opening of the hotel.
Some of the rooms have been renovated to create Cerebrio and Happy Magic rooms, each with suites and family rooms.
The guest rooms are located on the 3rd to 11th floors of the Hilton Tokyo Bay.
Happy Magic Room: 3rd – 5th floor
Hilton Room: 6th – 7th floor
Cerebrio: 8th-11th floor
If you like high floors, Celebrio is the place for you.
The “Cerebrio” is a relatively new room with a washing area, which is popular among Japanese people.
Hilton Room at Hilton Tokyo Bay
This time, our family stayed in a standard Hilton room.
Room size: 35 m².
Bed width: 122 cm
The bed was large enough for me to sleep comfortably after playing in the park.
The furniture in the room is chic and calm, and the desk even looks like it could be used for work.
There are shoji screens near the windows and a Japanese atmosphere.
Amenities of Hilton Tokyo Bay
The amenities at the Hilton Tokyo Bay are about the same as at a regular hotel.
Shampoo, conditioner, body soap, toothbrush, comb, towel, pajamas, slippers, hairdryer, etc.
The pajamas are a one-piece type.
If you prefer to wear separates, it is safer to bring your own.
The amenities at the Disney hotels were illustrated with characters, which I wanted to take home as a souvenir.
The Hilton, on the other hand, has a simple design.
Kids Amenities at Hilton Tokyo Bay
The Hilton Tokyo Bay also has amenities for kids.
Toothbrush, pajamas, slippers
If you make a reservation in advance or tell them when you check-in, they can provide you with kids’ amenities.
Children’s pajamas are one size fits all (5-6 years old), so if you don’t have the right size, it’s better to bring your own.
I’m glad that the Disney Resort hotels treat children as full-fledged guests.
The Hilton Tokyo Bay also has cribs and step ladders available for rent.
Breakfast at Hilton Tokyo Bay
You may be wondering if you should eat breakfast at the hotel.
Breakfast at the Hilton Tokyo Bay restaurant is buffet style, but there are Japanese and Western dishes available, and there is a kids’ corner.
If you are looking forward to hotel life as well, I recommend the breakfast buffet.
The breakfast buffet at Hilton Tokyo Bay is most crowded at 7:00 am.
There is no reservation system, so you may have to wait in line to get into the restaurant.
Here are some tips on how to shorten your wait time when restaurants are crowded.
If you don’t have a reservation yet, why not sign up for Hilton Honors?
The waiting line at the restaurant is divided into members and non-members, and Hilton Honors members get priority.
If you don’t want to spend a lot of time on breakfast and your priority is to play in the park, convenience stores are another option.
I’ll explain more later, but the Hilton Tokyo Bay has a major Japanese convenience store, Lawson.
