    Hi, I was wondering-how accessible are J-world, Tokyo Disneyland/sea and the Ghibli Museum?  I have always wanted to check them out and am curious.  The site mentions Akihabara, but not these locations (unless I looked in the wrong section).  Thanks in advance

    Hi,

    Tokyo Disneyland and Disney Sea are fully accessible.

    Ghibli Museum is also accessible.

    Both are great places to visit.

    Thanks, any info on J-world?  It’s meant to be an in-door anime themepark or something of the sort.

    J-World was closed on February 17, 2019, unfortunately, as it was originally scheduled since its opening 6 years ago.

    Hello,

    Sorry for the late reply!  Thank you @wilgo for your answers!

    In addition to the Ghibli link above, here is our review:
    https://www.accessible-japan.com/places/japan/tokyo/mitaka/attractions/the-ghibli-museum/

    An additional note on Disney.  The parks are accessible, there are many accessible toilets, and shows and restaurants are accessible.  However, it should be noted that after the earthquake and tsunami in 2011, many locations – including Disney – updated their safety policies.  Unfortunately, one of the changes was that anyone using a ride must be able to evacuate by themselves – so those who cannot walk cannot go on the rides.  Shows and some attractions where you stay in your wheelchair are fine, but any ride requiring you to get into a vehicle (like splash mountain etc) is not open to wheelchair users.
