The Hong Kong Disneyland Hotel is located on the waterfront of Lantau Island. A ferry terminal is located within steps of the hotel grounds, with a small number of ferries per day from Kowloon.

The hotel is a 10 to 15 minutes’ drive from Hong Kong International Airport.

The hotel can be also be reached by public transport, including the MTR, bus, or taxi.

If you are coming by MTR, you should change from the Tung Chung line to the Disneyland Resort line at the Sunny Bay MTR station.

If you are coming from the airport by taxi, make sure to take a Lantau taxi, which will be blue.

If you are coming from the urban areas, you can take a red taxi. If you are coming from the New Territories, you should take a green taxi.

The Verdict …

Hong Kong Disneyland Hotel is the most expensive of the three hotels, and it also has the most comprehensive facilities.

Of the three hotels, it is the only hotel having suites, it is the only hotel with a fitness room, and it is the only hotel with an executive lounge.

It has an undeniable buzz.

MICE Showcase Media Tour

I was part of a MICE Showcase Media Tour, which was organized to familiarize journalists with the world-class facilities that Hong Kong Disneyland has to offer organizers of meetings, incentives, conferences, and events (MICE) as well as wedding planners.

Both the Hong Kong Disneyland theme park and the three Walt Disney Hotels located nearby were included in the tour.

Our group comprised journalists, food critics, and travel bloggers from China, Hong Kong, and Taiwan.

We spent a total of three days and two nights at the Hong Kong Disney resort.
