And there are numerous options for earning miles/points to eliminate the plane ticket! We used points/miles the first time we went (Dec 2018) (United NS flight from Denver that normally runs $2K per ticket). We were supposed to go back last year, and again we have enough points to cover the flights.Did you know that, aside from the plane ticket, a stay at the vastly-superior Tokyo Disneyland/TokyoSea is cheaper than a stay at WDW or Disneyland? Or so online vloggers have led me to believe.
That should tell you something. Talk about value for your dollar. The Robert Iger Company will continue to cut services, raise prices, do poor maintenance, and leave things broken as long as suckers still line up to pay for it. As long as that greedy pig is in charge of Walt's company, things are not going to improve for stateside parkgoers.
But hey, enjoy those celebratory cupcakes.
We did it "bucket list" style so we stayed 6 nights in the Captain Mickey triple room at MiraCosta (and a 1 night (arrival) at Wish because it was a Saturday and that was all that was available). It was about $600/night, but it was definitely Deluxe, and you definitely come out ahead with TDR Park Tickets vs WDW (we bought a 2 Day, had a day in Tokyo, then bought a 4 Day).
