The MiraCosta is a glorious Italian-themed hotel that wraps around the Tokyo DisneySea park. If you’re planning to visit the Tokyo Disney Resort and want the ultimate in luxury and immersion in the Disney experience, this is it. I saw the MiraCosta three years ago when I visited DisneySea and decided that I absolutely HAD to stay there. It took a while to make it happen, but we finally spent three nights at the glorious MiraCosta. Was it worth it? Well, yes and no. I’m glad we had the experience once, but probably won’t do it again.
It’s not easy to book the MiraCosta. Good rooms go fast, so you have to make your reservations as soon as rooms are available--6 months out, I think. To make the reservation if you live out of the country,
you have to call their phone number in Japan (it’s available on the MiraCosta web site--just google it), navigate the Japanese automated phone system to get a live person, and convince that person to find an English-speaking person to make the reservation for you. If you can read Japanese and have an address in Japan, you can make reservations on line.
Because they don’t particularly encourage or make it easy for foreign guests to stay at the MiraCosta, it wasn’t surprising that we seemed to be the only non-Japanese in the hotel. But they really went out of their way to accommodate us and make us feel at home. Many of the staff speak English, there are several English channels (including the Disney Channel) on TV, and we got an English newspaper every morning. The staff was very, very nice and quite helpful.
Rooms at the MiraCosta are largish by Japanese standards, and include a big, comfy couch and a small table/desk with a chair. The bathrooms are huge and are divided into a central sink area with a room for a washlet toilet on one side and a bathing room on the other. The bathing room had a very deep, comfy soaking tub and a separate shower powerful enough to strip paint.
But the best feature of the room was the view! We had snagged one of those terribly expensive and hard-to-get harbor views which gave us a full view of the park, the water shows on the lagoon, and the volcano, which erupted periodically. The windows are well insulated, so you don’t hear sound from the park unless you open a window.
Convenience to the park is another draw at the MiraCosta. The DisneySea park is literally a 30-second elevator ride away and hotel guests get early entry. Very nice and very convenient.
The hotel had, tucked into its Italian opulence, many nice Disney touches such as hidden Mickeys, Pinocchio prancing through the scenic murals in the hallways, and Mickey elevator announcements.
All in all, a stunning hotel and well worth the expense.
So why will we probably not stay there again? Well, it’s very expensive, for one thing. And we also discovered that the hotel restaurants, although quite good, are geared mainly toward very large, extravagant, and expensive meals. We didn’t eat in the hotel much.
Still, for a totally luxurious Disney-immersion experience, you can’t beat the MiraCosta.
