I stayed at Tokyo Bay Maihama Hotel, a Disney official hotel located in Urayasu City, Chiba Prefecture.
Tokyo Bay Maihama Hotel, which opened in March 2007, is the newest among the six Disney official hotels.
Its distinctive feature is its circular-shaped exterior, and unlike other official hotels, all rooms have separate bathrooms and toilets.
During my stay, I stayed in the “Symphony Room” on the park side, and I would like to provide a detailed introduction of the room.
Please note that external links to products, services, etc. featured on this site may contain affiliate advertisements.
There are two types that differ based on the view”Harmony room/Symphony room”
Tokyo Bay Maihama Hotel is classified into two main room types
・Size : 32㎡
・Capacity : 2-3
・View : Bay view, facing the sea, you can enjoy views of the Tokyo Gate Bridge and the Ferris wheel at Kasai Rinkai Park.
・Size : 35㎡
・Capacity : 2-4
・View : Park side, you can see Cinderella and the Disney Resort Line.
The Symphony Room is slightly larger in size compared to the harmony Room, and it can accommodate up to four guests, while the Harmony Room has a maximum capacity of three guests.
However, the biggest difference is in the view.
One of the strengths of Disney Official Hotels is their proximity to the parks and the opportunity to enjoy the views of the Disney Resort from the guest rooms.
Tokyo Bay Maihama Hotel also offers Symphony Rooms with park views.
However, there is a major issue that has been troubling this hotel recently, and that is the construction of the new area and new hotel.
I will provide more details about the view from the rooms later, but it’s important to note that it doesn’t necessarily guarantee a clear view of the park.
A stunning lobby with an abundance of natural light streaming through its soaring atrium.
The check-in counter is located to the left after entering through the main entrance.
The hotel, with its cylindrical shape, features a central restaurant surrounded by Disney shops, the front desk, elevators, and other facilities.
We arrived after 3pm, so it wasn’t crowded, but during the check-in rush after park closing hours, it seems like it could get crowded.
For this visit, we originally booked a Harmony Room, but we paid the price difference during check-in and upgraded to a Symphony Room.
There are two elevators located diagonally from each other that lead to the guest rooms.
The room I stayed in was located on the 7th floor and had a design with orange tones.
The beds were Hollywood Twin style, with the beds already connected together.
Since the bed width is 110cm, when they are connected, it becomes larger than a King-size bed.
It provides ample space for two adults and a child to sleep comfortably.
The night panel offers simple functionality with electric switches located at the entrance, desk side, main area, and window side.
There are also electrical outlets conveniently placed by the bedside.
There were no USB power outlets available.
There is a large sofa by the window.
The table is spacious, so you won’t have any trouble having meals in the room.
TV / Refrigerator, etc.
As Tokyo Bay Maihama Hotel is one of the Disney official hotels, you can watch Disney Resort information on the television.
We have been enjoying the Disney Resort atmosphere throughout our stay by watching Disney information on the television.
Unfortunately, the TV does not have mirroring capabilities, so we cannot watch content from YouTube, Netflix, or other platforms on it.
With the Non-stop Departure service, we can check out via the TV without having to stop by the front desk.
It’s very convenient during busy morning hours like before the park opens.
There is a large vanity mirror to the left of the terevision.
On the right side of the television, there is a cupboard and a kettle.
There is also a glass tumbler provided.
Coffee and creaming powder
Green tea, sugar
The refrigerator is empty.
The children’s pajamas are separate for the top and bottom.
The room features a color scheme primarily centered around orange.
Bathroom / Toilet
Tokyo Bay Maihama Hotel is the newest among the Disney official hotels and the only that offers separate bath and toilet facilities in all rooms.
The bathtub, inspired by a seashell motif, is spacious and allows even adults to stretch their legs and relax comfortably.
It features a step inside, providing added safety for children.
The bathing area is also generously sized, allowing space for washing.
There are two faucets with different shapes, but there were no labels or instructions indicating their differences, so it was unclear.
Basic amenities are provided.
The hairdryer is provided in a bag.
Fireworks are highly recommended! The view from the room(Symphony Room)
Moving on to the view from the room
While the Harmony rooms face the sea, the Symphony rooms are located on the park side.
When you open the bright red curtains, you’ll be greeted with…
You’ll be able to see the Disney Resort Line!
You can also see other Disney official Hotels such as the Toy Story Hotel, Hilton Tokyo Bay Hotel, and Hotel Okura Tokyo Bay , among others.
In front, you can see the under-construction Tokyo DisneySea Fantasia Springs Hotel, scheduled to open in spring 2024.
On the left side, you can see Space mountain, the Beauty and the Beast Castle, the backside of the mountain, and the tip of Cinderella Castle.
Looking at it this way, the construction site stands out.
While you can enjoy the ambiance of Tokyo Disney Resort with views of hotels and the monorail, it feels a bit lonely for a “park view”
However, whenever the Disney resort line passes by, the cast members wave at you, which adds to the excitement .
And on days when there are fireworks, you can enjoy a beautiful view of them from your room.
Breakfast / FINE TERRACE
Breakfast is served at “Fine Terrace” located in the central area of the lobby.
Unlike many hotels around Tokyo Disney Resort that charge for children starting from around 4 years old, Tokyo Bay Maihama Hotel allows children aged 6 and below to stay for free.
The breakfast buffet offers a variety of options including Western, Japanese, and dessert menus.
There is also a wide variety of breakfast available, offering a rich selection for breakfast.
The dessert selection is also abundant and satisfying.
They also offer popular desserts like Maihama Pudding and Shortcake.
The kids’ area is filled with child-friendly options such as meatballs, fried jellies that children will enjoy.
Restaurant / Shop
Tokyo Bay Maihama Hotel, as an Disney official hotel, offers the convenience of purchasing Disney merchandise within the hotel premises, in addition to facilities like a bakery and more.
There is a lounge on the lobby floor where you can enjoy light meals, coffee, and desserts.
One of the benefits of staying at a Disney official hotel is the ability to purchase Tokyo Disney Resort merchandise within the hotel itself.
This is especially convenient as it eliminates the need to carry around merchandise while in the park or deal with crowded souvenir shops near closing time.
Guests can enjoy the convenience of shopping for Disney goods at their leisure after returning to the hotel.
Guest can also purchase exclusive Tokyo Bay Maihama Hotel design medals that are available for sale only at the hotel.
