Hong Kong Disneyland Resort

Hong Kong Disneyland Resort

Hong Kong Disneyland is perhaps the most intimate of any resort. Many consider it small compared to other Magic Kingdom parks. Main Street, U.S.A., Adventureland, Fantasyland and Tomorrowland is there. Favorites like the Jungle Cruise…

…and ‘it’s a small world”

Hong Kong Disneyland has one of the best “it’s a small world” attractions found globally.

These attractions make up part of the roster. Still, other attractions like Pirates of the Caribbean and Haunted Mansion are missing. Disney is trying to counter that with ambitious new attractions found no where else and even a bigger castle. For instance, Marvel has the biggest footprint in this park than any other globally with Marvel Ironman experience…

…Plus Antman and the Wasp Nano Battle:

There are even unique one-of-a-kind attractions that are not tied to any unique film property. There’s Big Grizzly Mountain Runaway Mine Cars…

and there’s the popular Mystic Manor, considered by some as one of the best Disney attractions ever created.

But what I love most about this resort are the hotels themselves. They sit against the South China Sea, and they are wonderful get away experiences in and of themselves. I use it as a stop along the way to Singapore to acclimate to Asia and to new time zones.

There are three fantastic resort hotels on property.

There’s the new Explorer’s Lodge, that provides a unique Disney twist to Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge.

The flagship hotel is the Hong Kong Disneyland Hotel, patterned similarly to Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort.

For westerners, Hong Kong Disneyland requires the longest journey. But it is a jewel that offers its own rewards. Hong Kong is an amazing city, and Hong Kong Disneyland is no less.

Stay tuned in the weeks and months to come as we add additional details to this resort.
