Hongkong: Disney’s Hollywood Hotel

As much as possible we always travel on a shoestring but there are times we splurge on a travel just like our stay in Disney’s Hollywood Hotel. It was not an easy decision and it took me several weeks before reserving a room. 

I have to think hundred times because the rate of the room is not cheap and once I reserve the room it will be automatically charged to my credit card (full amount). It is non-transferable and non-refundable so I have to think carefully.


From Thomas and Friends to Cars and now my son adores Mickey Mouse so much; I love my son so I decided to book the cheapest room in Disney’s Hollywood Hotel last August. I used to like Mickey Mouse too during my college days so I will just charge it to experience.

Fast forward to our trip, we transferred to Disney’s Hollywood Hotel after our two nights stay in Yiu Fai Guesthouse. You have three options in going to Disney’s Hollywood Hotel from TST or Tsim Sha Tsui.

1. Disney’s Hollywood Hotel offer various limousine services from Tsim Sha Tsui to hotel.

4-seats Mercedes Benz HK$700 (4 guests & 3 suitcases)
6-seats Toyota Alphard (MPV) HK$600 (4 guests with luggage)

2. Travel by TAXI. The cost for Taxi would be around HK$180 per car (maximum for 4 passengers).

3. And of course the most economical way to travel is by MTR which we did.

From TST take the MTR (Tsuen Wan Line) to Lai King
From Lai King change to Tung Chung line on the opposite side
Get off at Sunny Bay and change to Disneyland Line on opposite side


Upon reaching the Hongkong Disneyland Resort we immediately look for the shuttles going to hotel so we could check-in first but since the check-in time is still 3PM, we just left our baggage.



I bought 2 day pass ticket and went straight to Disneyland. We went back after the fireworks; my camera’s battery was already empty so I just used my phone to take room photos. As you can see, my son is already sleeping; he slept on our way back to the hotel.




The following day, we woke up early to explore the hotel before eating our breakfast. We maximized our stay in our room and we left only during check-out time which is 11AM. We left our luggage and went to Disneyland again.







Likes

1. Proximity to Disneyland Resort.
2. Facilities and amenities are good.
3. Service is good.
4. Room is Mickey Mouse theme.
5. I book for 3 persons and we have our own toiletries and complimentary. Unlike in other hotels the freebies are good for 2 adults only.

Dislikes

1. Rate is expensive because you are just paying for the room. Breakfast meal is not included.
2. No free wi-fi. You have to pay HKD120 for 24 hours use.
3. No discount for Disneyland ticket even for hotel guests.

  2. Perfect timing! I've been spending time trying to plan a HK trip with one night stay at Disney's Hollywood Hotel. How was the breakfast? I hope we get more blessings next year so we can finally push through with the trip because it's not cheap!

    1. breakfast is just ok in Chef Mickey's restaurant, nothing special. but if you want meet and greet breakfast, book your breakfast in enchanted garden. I did not know this so we don't have any picture with chef mickey. akala ko nandun si mickey sa chef mickey's restaurant. sayang!
