Hotel Mira Costa is a wonderfully Tuscan themed and designed hotel that is located INSIDE, yes inside Tokyo DisneySea Park.
This hotel is (and probably will be) the most elaborate and expensive hotel I have stayed in.
Hotel Mira Costa has 502 rooms and everyday they are sold out. Everyday. The rooms here are hard to get. For packages at 6 months, a few minutes past the window of release the rooms will sell out. We were extremely lucky to get the room and package we were after. We were on the computer waiting until 2pm UK time, ready to make our reservation. At 5 months, room only reservations go onsale but there are very few of these left. Room only reservations start at around £300 a night, depending on season.
From the moment we walked in to the hotel we could see what all the reviews we had read were trying to tell us, the entrance was incredible and the lobby was over the top in beautiful way.
There are three sections to the Mira Costa, Venice Side, Tuscany Side and Porto Paradiso Side. We chose a superior room on the Porto Paradiso Side which sits on the left side with views of Mediterranean Harbour and stage.
We had booked the vacation package, the most expensive vacation package, as we thought we would get the most value. It cost 271,000Y for the 2 nights, (around £2000, no that is not a typo, sorry). This included,
- The hotel for 2 nights
- Breakfast for 2 mornings
- Park tickets for 3 days entry
- Happy 15 entry for 2 mornings
- 14 fastpasses between us
- 2 Show choices (We chose Big Band Beat and One Man’s Dream II)
- Monorail pass for the 3 days
- 1 x Popcorn bucket
- 2 x free drinks voucher (which entitled you to unlimited drinks during the 3 days at participating counter service kiosks)
- 2 x drink voucher holder
- 2 x complimentary gifts
(I plan to write a separate post on the Vacation Package and it’s pros and cons).
The location is incredible to DisneySea park and 2 stops away from Disneyland.
The check in process was a breeze, (a point to note is that the check in time is 3pm, there is no wiggle room on this), I had also had a package delivered to arrive the day before and there was no issues with them receiving it and passing it over. Once checked in we waited to be escorted to our room and our luggage was delivered to us later a few moments later.
When we were shown to our room, which was on the top floor And close to the lifts, the wonderful cast member showed us around the room which I thought was a nice touch. The room was not big, but a fair size, it had an amazing view of the park, because, if I haven’t mentioned it already (of course I have), the hotel is INSIDE the park! The room was decorated well, the beds were OK. The mattress was quite firm for my liking but it did not stop me sleeping well.
The bathroom was odd to me but it is common in Japan for the bathroom to be a wet room along with a bath in the room too. The amenities were brilliant, everything you think you would need plus more, even a sewing kit. All the amenities you got to keep. There were complimentary robes, slippers and pyjamas. There was a fridge and free bottled water. We had a little balcony that looked out further into the Harbour.
We didn’t spend much time in the room, other than to use it for sleeping at getting ready as the 2 nights we spent there we were out nearly 18 hours each day. However, I know that if I were to stay here again I would take my time and spend it in the absolute luxury this hotel offers.
There are 2 restaurants in the hotel the Silk Road Garden and Oceana, we had breakfast at Oceana twice on the two mornings of our stay before taking advantage of the Happy 15 entry. This buffet breakfast offered Asian and Western options and we were very full after both occasions of eating there.
The hotel hosts weddings so there are grand banquet halls and salons, I tried to sneak a peek, this did not work. There is a beautiful pool and spa, you can only enter the pool area if you swim. The area gets so busy that they will only allow people who use the facilities in. We couldn’t even get in for a look.
Anyone is permitted to enter the hotel, (there is a park entrance and the main entrance), too look around, eat and shop. However during the busy periods such as holidays and festivals the hotel is only accessible to the guests staying there.
The gift shop is small and offers a small selection of the park merchandise, it also offers hotel exclusive merchandise that is available only to guests staying there. There were plates, cups and plushes.
I would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Tokyo Disney Resort, especially the vacation package and I would definitely stay in this hotel again. (After I have experienced the Disneyland hotel).
After we checked out of Hotel Mira Costa after 2 nights we moved over to Hilton Tokyo Bay for 6 nights, which is also on the monorail line.
