I have looked over the official TDR hotel day and month price schedule(which is broken down into 4 colors:'value','regular','peak','top') and throughout the year every Sunday and select other days of the week are accented in 'red'. And strangely enough the red qualifiers don't correlate with the prices since they are found in all four 'seasons'.


I have not found a legend/key so what is special about every Sunday being 'red' and select other days in the year that on first sight look very randomly placed?

I'm not sure about the Sundays... in the U.S. calendars used to print Sundays in red to recognize their religious significance.

The other dates that are listed in red are Japan's National Holidays.

Here is a list of them:

Without looking at the calendar you are talking about, I would guess RED indicates days off and holidays.

Japan is a country where work and school six days a week is not an uncommon occurrence.

Road and Roger, you two nailed it about holidays as I matched those with the TDR official hotel schedule.

But the Sundays are still a mystery and then all this red begs the question why??

Why does TDR list those special days if they are not special---meaning the hrs. don't change at the parks(well I didn't notice any changes anyway) and the prices don't change at the hotels???


It's funny that I have been looking at the 'red' days since '04 on and off scratching my head and I just now have the courage to ask the panel thinking that it must have been so terribly obvious to everyone else----I didn't want to look foolsih LOL!!!!

What Roger said, I would guess.

Sundays and holidays (as many folks work on Saturdays).

Wild guess, but I believe it's a custom that was adopted when the Japanese changed to the Gregorian calendar in 1870's. The Japanese started using it to align itself with the European calendar replacing the Chinese lunar calendar.

That adoption included 12 month/year, 30-31 days/week, 7 days/week, etc. Since they used the same format as the West, the "red days" were probably kept as a convenient sunday/holiday marker without religious connection. -- MagicalNezumi
