Recently, I've been lucky enough to have the opportunity to stay in the Tokyo Disney Hotels. In the past month, I've had the luxury of getting acquainted with Disney's Beauty & The Beast Room in Tokyo Disneyland and the gorgeous Hotel Miracosta Palazzo Patio Room. This time, I decided to pay Mickey a visit and stay over for a night at his new Capitano Mickey Superior Room.
I didn't take a picture of the view from the room. That's because part of the hotel was under renovation. Beneath the curtains was a window with white wallpaper pasted from the outside, so that was a shame. When the renovations are done, you will be able to view the Tuscany side of the park.
If you travel during Tokyo Disney's regular season, a night in this room will cost 52,200 yen. In my opinion, that's a bit too much to be paying for this room, even if I had full view of the outside. I've stayed in a Tuscany Side room before and the view was not that great. I don't know about you, but a main draw for me to be staying at Hotel Miracosta is the view of the park from my room. I wanna wake up from my nap, open the window and hear the Japanese gondoliers singing Santa Lucia. I wanna look out my window and watch a performance of Fantasmic. I wanna look out my window and laugh at the people who will have to take a train back home from their adventure in Tokyo DisneySea.
The price of a Tuscany Side room has increased quite a bit since they've converted all rooms into Capitano Mickey rooms. In all honesty, Tokyo Disney just redesigned it's ceiling, added some additional artwork and pasted some wallpaper on the wall. They just made the rooms more Disney character-centric. Does that warrant a higher price tag than a Venice Side Superior Room or a Porto Paradiso Side Partial View Room which are similar in size, but offer views of the inside of Tokyo DisneySea? In my Honorable opinion, no. The view adds more to my stay than wallpaper.
