Why you should go to Hong Kong Disneyland

Disneyland Fireworks

All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them.

Disneyland never grows old. The sayings “Always young at heart” and “Never lose your childlike wonder” is apt in an enchanting place like Disneyland.

It’s true when they say that Disneyland is the happiest place on Earth. It is an escape from the bustling city lifestyle, or that 9-6 job, and all the stress and worries stemming from it. It gives you the chance to feel like a child again. Especially for those who grew up watching Disney movies, it is nostalgic to see the characters come to life before your eyes.

Recently, I had the opportunity to go to Hong Kong Disneyland with Klook travel and I had a magical time with my best friends there. Although I’ve been to Disneyland several times, and in different countries, it is still as enthralling as ever.

Read on for more about my experience going to Disneyland with Klook, as well as dibs on the latest additions to the theme park and a special PROMO CODE for my readers at the end.

1. HK Disneyland is the first to have a marvel-themed ride: The Iron Man Experience

There are 3 Disney Hotels till date: the Hong Kong Disneyland Hotel, Disney’s Hollywood Hotel and Disney Explorer’s Lodge. We had a lovely stay at Hong Kong Disneyland hotel – the rooms are elegant, comfortable and service is outstanding. Some of the highlights include having breakfast with Disney Characters and dining at Crystal Lotus Restaurant. It was also a bonus that we could head back to our rooms to rest right after a long day at the park.


6. Check out the latest Disney Hotel – Disney Explorers Lodge

The attention-to-detail in the design of Disney Explorer’s Lodge is amazing. The overall ambience is one of warmth, earthy patterns, and dark timbers. They also have obscure Mickeys around for you to play ‘Spot the Hidden Mickey’! Rooms are elegant and inspired by the hotel’s four unique themes, with some rooms overlooking the ocean. Those who love collecting Disney memorabilia have to check out their Disney store for an incredible selection of merchandise unique to this hotel.

7. See one of the most mesmerising fireworks displays

A trip to Disneyland is not complete without seeing the incredible fireworks display, Disney in the Stars. It is undoubtedly the best way to end a wonderful day at the park. Tip: Head there at least 30 minutes before the starting time to snag the best view.

8. Plenty of photo opportunities

GETTING AROUND

    1. Via MTR: You can get to Hong Kong Disneyland Resort via MTR (Sunny Bay Station). It is a 30-minute ride from the following MTR stations: Hong Kong International Airport Station (transfer at Tsing Yi Station and transfer to Sunny Bay Station), Kowloon Station and Hong Kong Station.
    2. Getting around is easy with the Octopus Travelcard, which is a reloadable value card. The stored value in the card can be used for transport and small purchases, such as food and convenience items. Purchasing it from here includes HKD50 stored value, and furthermore it’s a souvenir card different from the typical Octopus Card. Tip: Pick up the Tourist Octopus Card from the Hong Kong International Airport to start using it immediately.
    3. For utmost convenience, book transfers to Hong Kong Disneyland.
    4. If you are traveling in a group, consider booking a convenient car transfer to get from the airport to the resort directly. Our driver  contacted us 2 hrs before pick-up time.  Tip: Utilise the WiFi at the Airport to contact the driver via Whatsapp or WeChat.
