Tokyo Disney Resort is one of the busiest parks in the world and it would make a lot of sense to buy your tickets ahead of your visit. We bought ours online on their official website and printed out the e-ticket for a hassle-free entry to the park. As we have both been to other Disneylands’ in other parts of the world (which are all generally all the same), we decided to try something different and spent our whole day at Tokyo DisneySea instead (the only one in the world btw).
The park opens at 8am and so we tried to reach there as soon as it was opened. The main reason to be there early is to grab the fastpasses. Unlike the usual fastpasses that you may be familiar with, these ones are only applicable for the following rides:

- Toy Story Mania!
- Indiana Jones
- Raging Spirits
- The Magic Lamp Theater
- Mermaid Lagoon Theater
- 20000 Leagues Under The Sea
- Journey to the Centre of the Earth

For example you may only be able to use the fastpass lane between 2-3pm or so. You can check the next timing from the fastpass machines itself.
