First of all, when I read all the reviews about this hotel in relation to Tokyo Disney Resort, most of them said it was okay and bearable. Now I know it totally depends on whether or not your family is travel-ready. I didn't realize it till we got there that mine was totally NOT, not even a little bit. (We live in Japan, but our city is basically in the countryside and we use our cars to go everywhere and anywhere.)
So we had a rather difficult time getting to and coming back from the Disney Resort by train. Having taken many trains for work, my Canadian husband was in charge of determining which train to catch (I, despite being Japanese and being able to read and understand Japanese perfectly, was and am and will always be too lazy to figure out the train networks in big cities so I chose not to help out), and one time during this trip he made a totally wrong decision and we ended up wasting a good 30-60 minutes on the freaking JR lines (we got on the wrong line) before going to the Disney Land. Great.
The hotel room was okay at best. The baths were nice. It had a shower booth thingy as well as a nice big bath which came with bath jell for bubble baths. It had everything you'd need (minus the TV was kinda obsolete), the beds and structure itself and furniture were all nice and not that cheaply made but it's just that they were all a bit old, dark, a bit smelly (cigarette smell) so overall, I'd say the room was not that great.
The amenities were okay; they had shampoo, conditioner, razors, oil-based make-up cleanser, lotion, face moisturizer, toothbrushes and toothpaste and what not.
