Hong Kong’s Disney Explorers Lodge recently celebrated its grand opening and with it, Hong Kong Disneyland Resort continues to reinforce itself as the hassle-free family resort destination in the region. Here are some highlights that you can expect to enjoy with the little ones.
The luxurious 750-room resort hotel is dedicated to the spirit of exploration and incorporates design elements from four different regions: Asia, Oceania, South America, and Africa. Nearly 70% of the rooms in Disney Explorers Lodge can be connected, allowing guests the flexibility of both personal space and the ability to communicate with friends and family in adjacent rooms.
Close to 60% of the hotel’s area is dedicated to greenery. The hotel’s four distinctly themed outdoor gardens are each named after an iconic Disney or Pixar character and flourished with vibrant plants and shrubs native to the region it denotes. With over 170,000 plants, the hotel’s picturesque surroundings will surely ignite your inner nature lover.
Guests staying at Disney Explorers Lodge and the other two resort hotels can participate in any of the recreational activities at the three hotels as well as receive Priority Admission Passes for selected attractions and seat reservations for stage shows in the park.
There is also a jogging path along the scenic Magic Road and the waterfront promenade surrounding the resort’s three hotels which spans a combined distance of roughly five kilometers.
Your little ones can participate in Arts & Crafts Workshops and create one-of-a-kind Disney crafts, or learn about the four region’s plants and cultures.
Classic Disney movies are also screened in the evening by the Piano Pool and they can be watched while sitting in miniature cars – to resemble the unique drive-in theatre experience – how cool is that!
Disney Explorers Lodge boasts three new restaurants that can altogether seat around 500 people at a time. Guests can select from more than 550 dishes from either signature Chinese delights at Dragon Wind, international cuisine at the World of Color Restaurant or laid-back dining at Chart Room Cafe.
The young ones will be delighted to interact with beloved Disney characters in their brand-new outfits during the buffet at Dragon Wind.
Memorabilia and memories
The Trading Post is the best place in the hotel to find artifacts and memorabilia to bring back home. These include more than 20 exclusively designed items ranging from Mickey and Minnie explorer plush toys, souvenirs inspired by the four themed gardens, to luggage tags, notebooks, hats and mugs.
