Welcome to the Hong Kong Disneyland Hotel. This was the first stop of the shuttle bus that goes around the park and the two Disney hotels. At first glance, I fell instantly in love with the old Victorian look of the hotel. It looks so grand and majestic, something that reminds me of a scene out of Beauty and the Beast.
We got the Sea View with Balcony room (HK$ 2,400) which has two queen size beds perfect for a family of four. Since, it was just Paul and me that night; we surely had a grand time enjoying our enormous beds!
I love our pretty bathroom which was decorated with the faces of Snow White and the seven dwarfs. Even the boxes of our toiletries bare the faces of these cute lovable characters.
Taking a peek outside our balcony, we saw the ever famous garden maze that our friend Chel has been telling us about. This is a fun place for friends and family to play.
Going up and down the hotel, I enjoyed riding the elevator that has the voice of Mickey and Minnie announcing the level in every stop. Hearing Minnie giggling puts a smile to my face and I’m sure to all guests of the HK Disneyland Hotel as well.
After our fun-filled adventure at the park, we went back to the hotel and took a leisure stroll around the garden. I particularly liked the gazebo that gives a very romantic feel to the entire garden. Paul, acting like “the Prince Charming”, jokingly asked me to dance – sadly, we were not dressed for the part though, both in shorts, loose shirt and flipflops, maybe next time.
At the far end of the garden was a boardwalk that allows visitors to jog by the bay. I love the sound of water crashing against the wall and how it keeps your soul in a peaceful, serene state.
Before calling it a night, Paul decided to do some laps at their indoor pool. Can you see how clear the water is?
I also enjoyed using the free wifi at the lobby and checking out the gift shop which is a perfect stop for those who wants to bring home a memento or two from Disneyland.
The morning after
I can’t believe we’re flying back to Manila already. It was already our last day and we’re running on a very tight schedule. Our flight back was at 11AM and we have to be at the airport by 9AM the latest.
Not wanting to miss the much-talked-about breakfast buffet at the Enchanted Garden, Paul and I were one of the first to arrive as the buffet opened at 730AM. We got our table and immediately headed straight to the buffet table. What amazes me though was the number of kids up at this time. The restaurant was quickly filled with families and young ones who were also busy lining up to get their Mickey Mouse pancakes and waffles.
I liked the breakfast spread where there’s a mix of Asian and Western dishes. I enjoyed the crunchy hash brown potatoes, congee and fresh fruits.
Check out Paul’s breakfast plate!
Halfway through our breakfast, we were greeted by a familiar happy looking mouse in his Christmas sweater. It’s Mickey Mouse! No wonder the kids are up early as they wouldn’t want to miss being visited by their favorite Disney characters while enjoying breakfast.
We will surely be back at the Hong Kong Disneyland Hotel hopefully with the entire family. It’s a wonderful place not only for the young ones but for the young-at-heart as well.
