Hey, fellow Explorers! I want to start by saying how much we appreciate and ❤️ each of our loyal readers here at TDRExplorer. You’re the ones that make this all possible, and it's your support that has allowed TDRExplorer to grow into what you see today, and to continue to flourish into the future!

What is TDRExplorer?


We are a trip planning website specializing in guides, videos, and original content to help plan your trip to Tokyo Disney Resort, Hong Kong Disneyland, and Shanghai Disneyland.

I started TDRExplorer back in 2009 as a simple blog for my Disney Trip Reports. After moving to Japan in 2013, I began writing about Tokyo Disneyland for fun. Since then, we have grown into one of the best places to research your trip to not only Tokyo Disneyland, but Hong Kong and Shanghai Disneyland too!

In the past year alone, we've released our wait time app — TDRNow — for iOS and web browsers (with an Android app on the way), and crafted our unique “Start Here” guide which highlights our best guides and articles for Tokyo Disney Resort. After thorough consideration by our team of statistical analysts (just me at Starbucks with a notepad and a Frixion pen) of the results of two surveys undertaken, we look forward to bringing you more of what you want to see in 2017 and beyond, including:

  • Guides and reviews to other attractions and destinations within Japan, including other theme parks (we're just dying to fill you in on Huis Ten Bosch, the Dutch theme park in Nagasaki)
  • Planning guides to the other Disney Parks in Asia, Hong Kong and Shanghai (and a strategy for tackling all three resorts!)
  • More in-depth discoveries of the “kawaii" merchandise exclusively available at Tokyo, Hong Kong, and Shanghai Disney Resorts

We love being able to provide you with daily news and updates, and now, we're pleased to invite you to show your support by contributing to the TDRExplorer Patreon.

Why Patreon?


We want to continue growing TDRExplorer and bring you more high-quality guides, videos, and original content. From videos highlighting merchandise or food to informative guides to maxmise your time in the Disney Parks in Asia.

Your contribution helps us keep the site running, and will mean we can grow TDRExplorer from being a great resource for planning your Tokyo Disney Resort vacation to being the premier destination for news, reviews, guides and more, for Tokyo Disney Resort, theme parks and other attractions within Japan, and even further afield from Shanghai and Hong Kong.

Whether you're a regular visitor to TDRExplorer, or it's your first time, we hope you've found great value in the information we have on offer, and will consider supporting TDRExplorer Patreon (even $1 a month is a great help!) 😁. With your contributions, we can take the site from “awesome” to “spectacular”!

With your help, we will make TDRExplorer bigger and better and be THE source for trip planning, videos, and original content for Tokyo Disney Resort, wider Japan, and other destinations across Asia.
