It's everything I can ever dream of! I always wanted Disney to build a hotel that's a life size version of Cinderlla's castle. I've always been enchanted by that castle in the being of every Disney movie! I wish they would build one here in california!!

Wow! What an amazing hotel. I hope they'll build something like that in the states.

They won't/can't. In the States we're all about doing construction with the lowest bidder and with the cheapest parts. The Japanese aren't like that, they pay big bucks for luxury and excess.

Amazingly beautiful. And amazing prices! The room rates are comparable to or lower than the summer rates at the Disneyland Hotel, which isn't anywhere near as clean and well appointed (anyone check the DLH reviews on TripAdviser recently?), and less than the rates of the Grand Californian.

A kind reader just send me an email to tell me that the room prices i am quoting for the Tokyo Disneyland Hotel are for the least expensive rooms at the least expensive time of the year. It seems to be impossible to get rooms at those prices for most of the year.
In fact, room price for a standard room mid week this october is 41000 Yen per night ( $386 ) and 51000 Yen the week-end ( $ 480 ).
