On our recent trip to Hong Kong, my husband, daughter, and I had the chance to spend three nights in the Hong Kong Disneyland Hotel while we visited Hong Kong Disneyland.

The Disneyland Hotel in Hong Kong will look familiar to those of you who vacation in Walt Disney World, as it is very similar in look and feel to the Grand Floridian.  The hotel itself is quite a bit smaller in scale, like most of Hong Kong Disneyland, but it still manages to seem equally grand and stylish.

The Cost

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.

The Rooms

Hong Kong Disneyland Hotel Beds

Hong Kong Disneyland Hotel Two Double Bed Room

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 Hong Kong Disneyland Hotel room art was pretty cute.

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.

The Dining

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!

Snack at Walt’s Cafe, Hong Kong Disneyland Hotel

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.

Heart-shaped fruit made our daughter smile at Walt’s Cafe breakfast. The continental breakfast buffet is visible behind her.

Our second dining experience was at the Enchanted Garden restaurant.  This beautiful restaurant is located on the lower level of the hotel and is filled with flowers and plants.  It feels a bit like the garden scenes in Alice in Wonderland.  It is also the location for character dining at the hotel, so expect it to be priced accordingly.  I’ll be doing a separate and full review of our character breakfast experience there, but suffice it to say that I think this is a can’t-miss.
