Disneyland Hotel, Hong Kong
We paid about $330 USD per night during our visit, and we thought that was quite reasonable. This is more than what we are usually comfortable paying for hotels, but this was a special vacation that warranted special accommodations. Additionally, hotels in Hong Kong are already quite expensive, so this rate didn’t shock the conscience. A comparable hotel in the city would likely be $400-$500 a night. And for those of you who vacation in Walt Disney World, you already know that comparable WDW properties can be $600-800 a night, depending on the season. For this reason, we felt we had gotten a bit of a deal.
We opted for the most basic of rooms in the Hong Kong Disneyland Hotel, as we knew we wouldn’t be spending much time there. Our room had two double beds. Our daughter was in one of the beds, so it was a bit tight for my husband and me (we have grown accustomed to a queen bed at home), but we did just fine. The only room options at the hotel are either two doubles or a king, so things could be a bit tight for an American family of four used to the two queen arrangement in most US hotels.
The room itself was quite spacious. The room had a desk a full dresser with 6 drawers in the dresser, and a bedside table that included some additional clothes storage space. The room also had a mini-fridge under a bar area, and a very spacious closet with even more shelving for storage. What we especially loved was that the closet contained complimentary Mickey slippers for everyone in the family to take home as a souvenir – a nice Disney touch.
The bathroom in our room had a tub/shower combination, a spacious vanity (complete with Snow White & the Seven Dwarfs toiletries!), and a toilet. Nothing spectacular, but it got the job done for three people.
We dined in two of the three hotel restaurants: Walt’s Cafe and Enchanted Garden Restaurant. The third restaurant, Crystal Lotus, served higher end Chinese cuisine. We simply didn’t have the time to fit in a visit during our short stay. But it looked beautiful!
Walt’s Cafe is a casual sit-down restaurant. We ate there upon arrival for a mid-afternoon snack of macaroni and cheese and fruit and found it to be quick and reasonably priced.
We also chose to eat at Walt’s Cafe for breakfast one morning. The breakfast offerings included several hot entree choices (I had an omelet and I spotted several traditional Chinese breakfast options as well). The entree was supplemented by an included continental breakfast buffet with pastries, fruit, cereal, and more. Plan about 30 minutes for breakfast here. This isn’t the place for grab-and-go if you are racing to the park to make rope drop.
