    Hello,

    I am in the early stages of planning a trip to Tokyo Disneyland sometime the week after Thanksgiving/first week of December for my husband, my Dad and me. We're purposefully going during the Christmas season because it's a bucket list item for my Dad. I'm planning on doing a split stay between Mira Costa (not a Porto Paradiso room because of cost and I can't book it the day reservations open) and the Tokyo Disneyland Hotel.

    For MiraCosta, I had planned on booking a Captain Mickey room based on the fun decor. But the Venice Superior Room says that it could overlook the canal area in TDS.

    For DL Hotel I was initially planning on booking a character room, but then I realized the park view rooms are actually a little cheaper.

    So my question is, which is more worth it? Potential views or known character theming? Also, I am only 5' tall so I was planning on just getting a room with Twins + Trundle, with me on the trundle. Am I going to regret that, and should we splurge on a Triple Room? Going to a Triple really limits the room choices.

    Thanks!

    IMO the trundle bed is intended for a child. I'm sure adults sleep on them but it's not how I would like to spend my vacation. You might consider splitting the difference & booking a triple room at one hotel or the other - then, at least, you would only be sleeping on it for a few days.

    As far as which is more "worth it" - I think the only person who can answer that is you :) These are very nice hotels & you can't really go wrong with either choice. Personally, I would choose a great view over room decor any day, but if you've seen photos of the character rooms & they really appeal to you, well, there you go!

    We stayed in a Venice room at MiraCosta in January this year and had a lovely view of the gondola and Tower of Terror! Could also see the monorail from our room. I haven't stayed at DL Hotel, but I would definitely recommend the Venice room. :) We had such a great time that we're going again in September!

    How much did that cost per night? If you don’t mind me asking.

    It was 49,400 yen per night in January, which was around $450/night before tax. We had booked a twin room. That was considered "low" season I believe...

    That actually doesn’t seem too bad for the miracosta. I don’t think I can convince dh to stay there but it sounds pretty cool!

    Update from me. As it turned out, I didn't have to make a decision. We finally got all the airline miles in the right place this afternoon. By that time, room availability for 3 adults was pretty slim. And we had to maneuver around the fact that the only TDR Hotel still available on Saturday was the Tokyo Celebration Hotel. But we got everything booked. For the single nights, the CC wasn't a problem but we had to call Chase and get transferred to the Verify by Visa representative to do the 5 night one, and we had to put it on a different card.

    Arrival Night Sat 12/1 - Tokyo Celebration Hotel Wish Triple Room
    12/2 - 1 night reservation MiraCosta Captain Mickey Triple
    12/3-12/7 - 5 night reservation MiraCosta Captain Mickey Triple
    12/8 - Fly Home

    Since we were staying more than 5 nights and that we'd have to do multiple reservations anyway I was going to split it between Captain Mickey and the Venice Superior but there wasn't availability for more than 1 night in a row on the Venice side. So we will be content with what we have. After all, we are spending the first week of December at the MiraCosta with the parks all decked out for Christmas.

    I know people tend to hate on the Celebration hotel but I thought it was pretty nice. The Disney art in the lobby and rooms was nice and the bus service was probably better than what you get at WDW (they ran on a pretty accurate schedule) since it never seemed as packed as some WDW buses can get. It was certainly equivalent the moderate level for me and even though I thought $340.71/night was a bit expensive it was a quad occupancy and a Friday and Saturday in July.
