  • Written by Localiiz

Looking for a fun-packed good time with the family? Hong Kong Disneyland is the place to be. Apart from spending the day taking photos with favourite Disney characters and hitting star attractions, there are also plenty of things to see and do, making this theme park unique. Raring to go? Follow this ultimate Hong Kong Disneyland guide.

Where to get tickets and transport and book your stay

Located on Lantau Island, Hong Kong Disneyland has its own MTR resort line that connects from Sunny Bay Station. It is also accessible from bus routes R33 and R42, taxi, or even by ferry, with two Disney-bound rides per day departing from the Tsim Sha Tsui Star Ferry Pier at 11am and 5:15pm. If planning to stay overnight at one of the Disneyland hotels or tackle the park over the span of two days, look out for exclusive park and hotel packages on Disneyland’s website. 

Celebrating 15 years of magical dreams

Be ready to indulge in colourful decorations and special festivities as Hong Kong Disneyland celebrates its 15th anniversary. Visit the Castle of Magical Dreams, and take a deep dive into the reimagined design, which was inspired by 13 Disney tales of princesses and queens. Enjoy a glamourous encounter with Disney’s princesses and queens at The Royal Reception Hall, and don’t miss out on selfie opportunities when you meet popular Disney characters in their brand new 15th anniversary outfits.

Must-hit attractions

With tickets in hand, head into the park for a day of fun with the beloved Disney characters and rides. Scope out the seven themed lands and don’t miss the Marvel experiences with an aerial tour of the Hong Kong Stark Tower with Tony Stark at the Iron Man Experience and meet the Iron Man himself! Team up with Ant-Man and the Wasp to help fight off Swarmbots from invading the S.H.I.E.L.D. Pavilion in ‘Ant-Man and The Wasp: Nano Battle!’. 

Hop over to Mystic Manor, a Hong Kong-exclusive attraction, and ride through its enchanted museum and animated galleries where everything comes to life! Looking for a stimulating experience? Thrill-seekers can make their way over to the Big Grizzly Mountain Runaway Mine Cars and RC Racer to test their limits.

Storybook Shoppe - Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique

For princesses, go for a head-to-toe royal makeover at the Storybook Shoppe - Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique, where the Fairy Godmother-in-training will get the little ones fitted in a princess costume of choice, style their hair, and finish the look off with some shimmery makeup and a perfect manicure. Kids who prefer a more action-packed, hands-on experience could opt for Jedi Training and battle against Darth Vader at Tomorrowland. Meet Disney’s favourite characters, take a photo and make memories that will last a lifetime! 

As for those searching for some all-round family entertainment, catch a glimpse of all the beloved Disney princesses and characters at the Flights of Fantasy parade, which only happens during the daytime. Families can also sit back and enjoy Disney’s very own musical theatre shows, such as Festival of the Lion King and Mickey and the Wondrous Book, which features live vocalists, Disney characters, and dancers. 

Where to eat

Refuel after all these adventures with some tasty food. For a quicker bite inside the theme park, try the Starliner Diner or Royal Banquet Hall. Alternatively, grab some Hong Kong-style snacks at Main Street Bakery or one of the outdoor vending carts. There are plenty of dining options at Disneyland’s three hotels for those with a little bit more time on their hands. To taste the flavours of provincial China, visit Dragon Wind at the Disney Explorers Lodge, or Crystal Lotus at the park’s flagship hotel, which has exquisite Chinese specialities, fun Disney character-shaped dim sum, and everything in-between. There may even be a chance to meet the Disney characters at the hotels during meals. 

Where to stay

There are currently three hotels at the park — the newest Disney Explorers Lodge, the Hong Kong Disneyland Hotel, and Disney’s Hollywood Hotel. Disney Explorers Lodge has spacious themed gardens with decorative artwork that will give mini explorers plenty of room to run around. The Hong Kong Disneyland Hotel is the park’s flagship hotel, and is styled with lavish, Victorian-style interiors, offering its guests an upscale experience for both adults and kids. The Disney’s Hollywood Hotel is more relaxed and livelier in comparison, featuring many family-friendly amenities such as outdoor playgrounds, game rooms, and character dining options, where the little ones can meet Chef Mickey in person! Hotel guests may enjoy the amenities and recreational activities at the three hotels for free and there are even themed hotel rooms of Disney classics to explore.
