Disney's first and, as of yet, only hotel-within-a-theme park, these accommodations exude the spirit of Italy, as the hotel is modeled after the ports of Portofino and Venice. The hotel is located within the park's Mediterranean Harbor section. The hotel contains three restaurants: the Oceano (a Mediterranean buffet open from breakfast to dinner), the Silk Road Garden (open for lunch and dinner; serving dishes of Chinese provenance), and the Bellavista Lounge (offering snacks; open breakfast-dinner).

While the hotel IS very expensive (2 nights at this hotel cost us almost as much as the rest of our 2 week trip in Japan together) it is a perfect end to a Japan trip for me.

Room rates depend on view, Tuscany side (view away from the park, towards the train station and urban areas beyond Tokyo Disney Resort) is the cheapes, followed by Venice side (view of the Venice Canal area and the outdoor pool and gardens) and Porto Paradiso side being the most expensive with views inside the park, towards Porto Paradiso, American Waterfront and Mount Prometheus. But, there is a fourth view category, Porto Paradiso, Obstricted View. They offer views into the park, with some obstructions by building elements, like little towers etc. and it costs the same as the least expensive rooms!

I found that room category to be a very good deal. Both times I stayed at this hotel, I had a room at the very end of the hotel wing towards Mount Prometheus, just above and a bit behind the Wedding Chapel. The view obstruction by the little tower of the chapel was minimal and we had a beautiful view of the park, the volcano and Tokyo Bay in the distance.

Some pictures of the view from my room:
