You arrive Maihama and have a big expectation to what is waiting for.
Transferring JR to Disney Resort Line and paying 260 yen (nearly $2.5), you think "If I can save this, one more drink I can have..." because it's more expensive than the fare you pay to get Maihama from Tokyo.
OK then, use your foot to go to Tokyo DisneySea instead of monorail and make it real!
From Tokyo to Maihama, see The fastest way to Tokyo DisneySea from Tokyo Station by train.
In short, 10-15 min.
When you use Disney Resort Line, it will be 9 min from Resort Gateway station (nearby JR Maihama station) to Tokyo DisneySea and 3 min from Tokyo DisneySea to get back.
So it's recommended to use monorail if you have children or lots of belongings, but the time it takes are not so much different because it takes 5 min to transfer from JR Maihama to Resort Gateway station (they are bit far away).
For those who want to read Japanese, here is a translation table. Post continues below, so skip it to next section.
But it's better to ask others if you lost the way ;)
|駅 (eki) / ステーション||station|
|運動公園 (undo-koen)||sports park|
|交差点 (kosa-ten)||intersection/cross point|
|北 (kita) / ノース||north|
|南 (minami) / サウス||south|
|口 (kuchi / guchi)||entrance / gate / mouth|
|切符 (kippu) / チケット||ticket|
|窓口 (mado-guchi) / ブース||booth|
Getting out the JR Maihama station's South Gate, turn left and find stairs to get down. An elevator is near.
Go down that stairs and go to right a bit, seeing bus stop on your right and Ikspiari (A shopping center) on your left.
There is 1st intersection of 3 in total. Some of you'll notice an unique symbol of Ikspiari.
Now turn left this intersection and go straight. You can cross the street here when the traffic light is green, but it doesn't matter.
Along the street until you meet Urayasu City Sports Park.
Until then, you can see Ikspiari or Disney Ambassador Hotel (Tokyo Disney Resort Official Hotel) on your left and Tokyo Disneyland / the entrance of Oriental Land co. (company running Tokyo Disney Resort) on your right.
If you can see Disney Resort Line above and another artistic object, the symbol of Urayasu City Sports Park on your front, there it is.
Trun right the intersection #2 and walk a bit,then you will see the last intersection.
Cross the street and on the left corner of the intersection, the entrance of Tokyo DisneySea exists.
After passing small gate, you wll see bicycles' parking.
From there, go to right along the road. When the road become wider, turn left and you'll get at North Entrance Gate now!
I personally recommend to walk this route only when you go to Tokyo DisneySea and use monorail when you get back.
Because it takes only 3 min or so and you'll be very tired of walking in the park for a day.
Also, it is recommended to ride the monorail at least once because it has very good and cute interiors. One-day/Multi-day pass of Disney Resort Line suits for souvenirs, too.
