Hotel News: Disney’s Explorers Lodge to Open in Hong Kong



Disney’s trinity of hotels at Hong Kong Disneyland will be complete with the opening of Disney’s Explorers Lodge on 30 April 2017, bringing the total number of Disney hotel rooms at the theme park to 1,750.

The new hotel’s theme is to explore and to dream. There are two other hotels at Hong Kong Disneyland, each with its own distinct theme.

Hong Kong Disneyland Hotel has a Victorian theme, and Disney’s Hollywood Hotel has an Art Deco theme.



Disney Explorers Lodge combines some of the world’s most exotic cultures into its theme alongside its most popular cartoon characters.

More than 1,000 artifacts from these far-flung locales are on display in the lobby, guest rooms, food and beverage outlets, kids’ corner, and other indoor and outdoor spaces.

The theme is carried out from the lobby, with its dramatic cathedral ceiling to the 750 comfortable guest rooms with their garden or ocean views to the three food and beverage outlets and the four beautifully landscaped gardens.


No trip to a theme park would be complete without shopping for souvenirs, and Hong Kong Disneyland is no exception.

Souvenirs reflecting the exotic cultures of Africa, Asia, Oceania, and South American are on sale at the hotel’s gift shop, the Trading Post.

What makes this gift shop special is that it features 20 items that are exclusive to the shop. You won’t find them anywhere else!

Food and Beverage

Disney’s Explorers Lodge has three food and beverage outlets, each with a different theme, and each with a different menu.


Dragon Wind is a Chinese restaurant serving rural and classical provincial Chinese dishes inspired by the five elements of traditional Chinese culture – water, wood, metal, fire, air, and …

Buffet breakfasts are included in the room rates of some special packages. The eatery is also open for lunch and dinner.

Diners are greeted upon arrival at the outlet by Disney cartoon characters dressed in their explorers theme outfits.
