As if there wasn’t enough going on at Tokyo Disneyland, from the end of April through the beginning of May, you can take part in “Golden Week.” Golden Week in Japan is a series of public holidays from April 29th through May 5th. This year, the week is longer to celebrate the imperial succession making it last 10 days. It is recommended that you avoid coming to the parks during this time because of the heavy crowds. The weeks after Golden Week are some of the slowest for the resort and make a perfect time to visit. – https://tdrexplorer.com/golden-week-guide-tokyo-disney-resort/
