Hong Kong Disneyland Hotel

Sorry for the long absence as our family have been travelling the past week. I will make up for it by posting about our experiences in Hong Kong.

We were supposed to fly to Bangkok for the long weekend but re-routed to Hong Kong at the last minute due to the flood situation in Thailand.  It's Dawn's first trip abroad and we all agreed that the added stress of possible flood and being stranded in a foreign country was just unecessary.  So with only 5 days before the trip, we moved fast to change our plane tickets and book our hotels in Hong Kong.

Our first stop was the Hong Kong Disneyland Hotel. We stayed 2 nights in the Disney hotel before moving to the city. 

There are 2 Disney hotels in Hong Kong. The first one is Disney's Hollywood Hotel.  The hotel has a hollywood theme and is much reasonably priced compared to the other Disney hotel. During non-peak seasons, you can get a room for only P7,700 a night. On peak months though, it can go as high as P10,500 for the basic Garden View room.

The one we stayed in is the Hong Kong Disneyland Hotel. The hotel website described this hotel best when they said it has 'Victorian elegance'. That was truly how it felt going inside the hotel. It's like you're in a modern European castle.  The non-peak rates for the basic Garden View room costs around P10,500 but can go as high as P15,000 or more during peak months.

While we were at the lobby, we saw Snow White and Princess Aurora (a.k.a. Sleeping Beauty) so we took the photo opportunity and had Dawn pose with them. Troy did not want to pose as he said 'But that's only for girls, mommy!' ...okay, fine.

We also visited the gift shop where Disney items abound. Check out the cutest thing i found :)

Outside the lobby was a really nice garden maze. The hedges were not so tall so it was not much of a maze for adults. But Troy had a blast going around and getting lost. My sisters just had to keep on following him around to make sure he doesn't REALLY get lost.

The hotel also boasts 2 swimming pools. Our room had a nice view of the garden and the outdoor pool but what was more amazing for me was their indoor heated pool. We brought our swimsuits but did not get the chance to swim since we wanted to maximize our time in the theme park.

Our room was beautiful although i would not say it was extraordinary. There were touches of disney designs on the wood carvings but that was about it. What was more exciting for me were the kiddie bathrobes and slippers that they had. I shrieked what i saw them. Super cute!

The toiletries were also nicely packaged to give you that extra Disney feel.

The room that we got had 2 twin beds and we requested for a baby cot for Dawn. That's one good tip for travelling with a baby. We always request for a baby cot when checking in hotels instead of lugging around the portable (but oh-so-heavy) baby playpen. They also provided baby bedding essentials so you don't really have to prepare anything else.

After checking-in, we immediately got ready to go to the theme park. There is a free shuttle that goes around every 10 minutes from the Hong Kong Disneyland Hotel to the Disneyland Park so it was very convenient. The same shuttle also passes through the Hollywood Hotel so all guests are covered.

The bus to Disneyland Park is here!
Here we go. It's a Toy Story bus!

Watch out for the continuation of our Hong Kong adventure...
