Lantau Island's mountainious landscapes in the background makes the whole show even more enchanting. There will be singing and acrobatic performances performed by actors and actresses clad in African-tribe clothings.
You'll get to see some of your most favorite Lion King characters brought into the play as well. The theatrical play is performed in English, however there are some lines that are also repeated in Cantonese. Want much cheaper alternative?
You can always buy the ticket online or FastPass to avoid wasting times on long lines , they often giving discounted tickets too. You can also buy membership for more priviliges. If you're staying at any of Disney hotels, you can use shuttle services provided to go to and from Hong Kong Disneyland.

Festival of the Lion King. This VIP tour provides direct access to rides of your choice, reserved seating at shows, reserved seating at the daytime parade and evening Paint the Night parade, should either fall during your tour time. I have never needed this tour, but it is worth considering during summer weekends, August, and Chinese New Year or for peace of mind if the possibility of crowds worries you.
Guests who choose to stay in one of the three Hong Kong Disneyland hotels will now receive at least one Priority Admissions Pass.
These passes are different from the FastPasses. How many and the type you get depends on the room you book. The main reason though is that being this far into the park will put you in prime position to get to your favorite ride first. It used to be that everyone headed to Autopia. Be sure to pack sunscreen and bug spray. The latter is especially useful if staying until nightfall. You are not permitted to bring in outside food or drinks.
Adults over the age of 16 are not allowed to dress up. Selfie sticks are not allowed. I brought Bugaboo stroller multiple times and never had an issue with leaving it anywhere in Hong Kong Disneyland while I went on a ride. However, I never left anything valuable in it, and this is something to be done at your own risk. Stroller rentals are available at the park, too. Character greetings are possible throughout every land in the park. I would say skip this and use the Hong Kong Disneyland app to find other characters to meet.
Characters commonly sign autograph books, which you can buy in the Emporium on Main Street. It is a nice souvenir for your kids to have. They can put the stickers that staff around the park will give them in this book, too. In between the park entrance and the MTR station is a luggage storage area where you can stow bags if need be. They also offer 2-Day Hong Kong Disneyland ticket prices and promotional packages throughout the year.
Meal Vouchers : Hong Kong Disneyland now offers the ability to buy meal vouchers in advance. If you do, you will save HKD To give you an idea, I would buy the 2-in-1 Meal Voucher. The voucher needs to be scanned on your smartphone or a printed copy when ordering your food. The participating restaurants are my favorite anyway, and I find it easy to use. Annual Passes : Magic Passes prices start at HKD for adults are available to all guests, regardless of country of residence.
There are various levels of Hong Kong Disneyland annual passes. Whatever you do, I would highly recommend purchasing tickets in advance so you can skip the ticket booth line at the park. There are now three Hong Kong Disneyland Hotels, and they are all entirely different from each other. The exact number of passes received is based on the type of hotel room booked and, frankly, the details online are a little murky. Each room guest gets an entry with the same pass, up to four per room.
These Priority Admission Passes can be redeemed at the attractions listed on the pass. This is what ours looked like. Notes about the hotels : A convenient shuttle runs between the hotels and the park. You can walk from the Hong Kong Disneyland hotels to the park. That being said, my daughter loves staying at Hong Kong Disneyland, so we usually do for at least one night during our Hong Kong trips. However, I found it good value for money. Kids will love the piano-shaped pool, relaxed vibe and expansive grassy areas to run through.
Character breakfast and dinner happen here dates and times for the latter vary and the food is honestly not bad. Standard rooms are quite colorful though comfortable. The Rooms start at HKD The room, resort-style Disney Explorers Lodge opened in April This hotel is the luxury option though it pales in comparison to the fabulous five-star hotels elsewhere in Hong Kong. This hotel is where Crystal Lotus the excellent Cantonese restaurant that offers Disney dim sum , Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique, and more elaborate character dining is located.
There is a pool, a fun hedge maze kids love and nice sea views from the rooms. The park is so easy to get to details below that you could very easily stay in Central or Kowloon in a nicer hotel for the same or less money. Both are kid-friendly and well-located in Central, but Hong Kong is full of wonderful hotels.
Especially in good weather, this neat area of Hong Kong is an overlooked gem. It is indeed a lake with a woodsy park next to it. Surrey bikes and pedal boats are available to rent. There is also a snack shop. The MTR is an easy subway system to understand because of English signage and maps in each train car. This is rare. From the Airport : Even though the airport is also on Lantau Island, it takes about 20 minutes or so with no traffic to get to Hong Kong Disneyland.
Be sure to take a blue Lantau taxi. Red taxis go to Central, Kowloon and a few other parts of Hong Kong. Green taxis go to the New Territories. Visitors are primarily from mainland China with Hong Kong residents sprinkled in. The ratio of adults to kids is much higher in comparison to U. Disney parks. She is frequently stopped by very nice mainland Chinese who compliment her features or would like to take a photo of her or with her decide in advance how you feel about this as not to be caught off-guard.
Line cutting : Contrary to the polite behavior I mentioned above, there can be line cutting. Hong Kongers are quick to point out that the people who do this are foreigners. Instances of line cutting are becoming less frequent in recent years, but I would suggest you stand in line with purpose and a wide stance, if that makes sense, to prevent people from slipping through.
I hope you enjoy your visit to this fantastic Disney park that we love so much. My husband loves going to Hong Kong, yet he never invites us along! Interesting turn on the line cutting…at the Sphinx in Egypt, it was the Germans who were cutting and jostling the rest of us. Looking forward to the hotel review. I think they must have gotten the memo about touching. No one does that anymore, luckily! Oh, I love Hong Kong!
Your part about the train and how inexpensive it is really made me miss zipping around that city with my Octopus card! I still have it in my wallet! Thank you for sharing this experience. I had been worried about how crowded the park would be with Mainland tourists but it looks nothing as bad as it can get on the Mainland. It also sounds easier and cheaper than Disneyland Paris albeit smaller.
Is there any lost child case in HK Disneyland? I heard many stories about that… Scary…. Hong Kong is a very small place, relatively speaking so if there was an issue I would have heard about it in my parenting circles or in the newspaper when I was living there. They do have a well marked place off Main Street where you are to go in case your child is lost. I would assume the risk is no greater than at the other Disney parks. In fact, I feel safer at this one.
But for right now, it is easy for me to visit Disneyland in Orlando, Florida. Disneyland is a wonderful place to visit no matter where it is located. I should write about that actually. I prefer Central Hong Kong, which is also expensive. I would say it depends also on how long you are going for. There are also serviced apartments that have small kitchens and can be less expensive and easier for families.
We stayed at Central 88 which is in a great location, albeit on a busy street. I also love the Peach Blossom 1 month minimum stay in the mid levels. The MO is not super stroller friendly, getting in and out of the hotel, but there is usually a doorman. Any of the hotels in Pacific Place Admiralty would be great too. I am less familiar with Kowloon side. Is it the same HKDL? I can ask my friends that still live there. I usually go at the time the fast pass says. Hi, I would be visiting HK this coming may.. Would like to ask your insights on how to travel with 2 kids 8 and 3 yo?
Will be there for 4 days and would like to visit Disneyland, more attractions for kids and also shopping. I am a bit confused on where to book hotel without getting the kids too tired due to long travel. Where is the optimum place to stay where I would be halfway the airport, shopping areas and disneyland? Or can you give me advise on best option? Thank you so much! I always prefer Central. Central is also about 15 minutes depending on traffic to Ocean Park in the other direction of the airport , another place you must visit with kids.
I find Kowloon much too hectic for kids, unless you were at the Peninsula, Intercontinental or Ritz Carlton. The Ritz is a little out of the way, however. I brought a stroller for my 4-year-old last spring and would have been miserable without it. I will be traveling with my 3 yrs old daughter. I really want to take her to hk Disneyland during this 9 hours wait for the next flight. What is the event or ride where I should take her inside Disneyland within this very short visit. I enjoyed your articles tremendously.
Follow the taxi signs and take a blue Lantau taxi to Disneyland. Spend about hours at the park. Because you get in so early, perhaps call the Disneyland Hotel and see if there is space to dine at the character breakfast before the park opens. You must reserve it well in advance. There is a complimentary bus from Disneyland Hotel to Disneyland that runs frequently and takes just a few minutes. Then from Disneyland take a taxi back to the airport. You never know, but you should miss traffic in the hours you need to transfer.
I have taken flights that lands in HK at am. It helps to have an exciting activity for the kids to do in order to fight their exhaustion from travel. Where is the best place to stay? There seem to be two disney hotels but they seem quite expensive. How do they compare to other hotels in the city? I have stayed at the Disneyland Hotel. It is a little hectic and expensive for what it is but my daughter looooved it. I prefer to stay in Central Hong Kong, however, the larger hotels there can be even more expensive depending on time of year and which you pick.
There are a few smaller boutique hotels that are less expensive — maybe check Expedia to get an idea of price and availability. I hope this all makes sense! Me and my parents are going to Hongkong this coming April Is hours okay to spend in DL? Thank You. It is definitely more than enough time. In fact, you may find that it is too much time! We were there last summer and there are new areas like Toy Story Land and Grizzly Gulch that will have slightly longer wait times than the usual rides, because they are new.
Public transportation in Hong Kong is excellent so you can definitely be flexible with your schedule. Hi, I am from the Middle East Oman and it would be my frost time in HK with my husband and 3kids, 7years, 5years, 1year. I have a few questions:. What would you recommend is a good duration to enjoy the day rides and night shows in disneyland HK, 4days at the hotel?
After doing disneyland, anything interesting for kids in central HK worth spending 2 nights or so? If you are stayinlang at one of the Disney hotels, there are shuttles to the park that run every 15 minutes or so allowing you to play it by ear when the kids get tired, etc. We took a blue Lantau taxi to Disneyland from the airport and it took about 20 minutes. My daughter likes Ocean Park I do too , which is a sea-themed park on the island with shows, rides and a spectacular view. Also on that side of the island is a sort of touristy restaurant called Jumbo which is a large boat you take a small boat to get to.
My daughter likes that. She also likes taking the Peak tram up to the Peak for lunch. There is space for them to wander, shop, and great photo opportunities for you. If the weather cooperates, you can see all of Hong Kong. Cafe Deco on the Peak used to have a Sunday brunch with entertainment for the kids. They renovated last summer, so I am not sure if they still do it.
If not, the Peak Cafe is kid-friendly with a nice outdoor patio. The star ferry is a fun way to get from Kowloon to Central that kids like. Sorry, I am just seeing this! Great report, We are going end of September wife and I, our 4 year old son and a cousin. What else you recommend and where should we stay, thinking of staying 7 days.
You picked a great time of year to go with the best odds of good weather. Ocean Park on the island is great for age 4 and could be an all day adventure. I would suggest taking a ferry to another island like Lamma Island to walk around, eat or go to the beach. Hi do you think I am safe travelling to Hong Kong with my four year old alone? I want to try something different? Also any info on immunisations please x. I find Hong Kong to be very safe though I mostly roam on the island in mainly Central and in Kowloon.
Though it costs a bit more, I would try to stay in these areas. Sheung Wan, right next to Central, tends to have less expensive hotels and it still quite convenient. I traveled there now alone with my daughter all the time. Hi, Thank you for the advise on disney. We are going to hk for 9 nights in July and we plan to spend 2 days at disney. I have a 8 year old and a 4 year old. Do u think 2 days in Disney is enough? Any suggestions what to do in hk besides disney with the kids? Apologies for the late reply! I would go to Ocean Park on the island. Kowloon has a couple of fun museums.
My daughter is 6 and likes the markets not for long though. Take the tram at least one way. Stop and have lunch in the mid levels at one of the many restaurants.
The standard Hong Kong Disneyland ticket price is pretty reasonable when compared to the price (about $) per day at Disney World in. Hong Kong Disneyland “2-Day Fun” Special Package (First visit must be on or before December 31, ) MyDisney fans are entitled to enjoy many PLAY, SHOP AND DINE privileges (including a special edition Disney gift and multiple discount vouchers) upon a Park Ticket purchase.
Lots are kid-friendly. You might want to go at night for the fireworks and cooler air. My daughter is turning 4 this July and we want to take her to Hong Kong Disneyland on her birthday. July is during typhoon seasons so it could rain—a lot. Maybe carry an umbrella for shade you might need it for rain, just in case. You could book a character breakfast at Disneyland Hotel or do the Princess for a day program where the girls can dress up, just in case the park is too rainy.
Im planning to go to Disneyland this june and planing to book in disneyland hotel, if i do so, for example i wasnt able to see all the sites in one day, since im booked in the disneyland hotel can i go back the next day without paying for the entrance fee? I doubt they would let you go again for free due to bad weather but perhaps call the concierge desk at the Disneyland Hotel?
They would best be able to advise you about that. Yes, it includes admission to the rides. You pay additional for special experiences and, of course, food. Hello there, nice review! Btw, I want to ask you, how exactly can we get to the Disneyland feom the airport, is it better by taxi or train? I hope you can advise. We usually only go for half a day. The newer rides have longer lines, typically. Have fun! Can you recommend a nearby hotel in the same area for Disneyland?
Dear Ja lolla mum; Which mall in Hong Kong can I get nice evening dresses for 1 and 5 year old girls. Something fancy. Something like party princess in Malasiya if you are familiar with it. I will ask my friends if they know.
Great blog! Taking my 7yr old twins to Disney HK 2 full days but the other 2 days are a? Also what do u recommend on clothes and shoes? Do you recommend going out to night markets for these 2? Thank you for our wonderful insights! More power to you! I recommend closed-toed shoes in Hong Kong. The streets and sidewalks can have uneven pavement and gutter water. Clothing depends on the time of year but even in summer, you need a sweater as it will be hot hot hot outside and freezing cold air conditioning inside shops and other buildings.
I keep meaning to write about Ocean Park but you should take them there too if your budget permits. Hong Kong is full of Western food like sandwiches Subway is everywhere as is McDonalds and salads even. Thanks so so much for your tips and guidance. Your blog helped to prepare me and know my expectations. Thanks again. Hi, we were looking at coming over for about 5 nights next April 11 and was hoping to stay at disneyland resort but as its hong kong a school holidays were concerned re cost and how busy disneyland would be and how busy Hong Kong would be even? And if we did stay there how far away are the shops etc and is the shopping good reasonable prices?
Taking our 6 year old girl and 14 year old son? Then was thinking of flying to Singapore? Your thoughts would be great as no travel agent seems to be able to help me and be honest? Thanks again Natalie. Hi Natalie. Actually, we visited during a school holiday in Lines averaged about 45 minutes for popular rides, which is normal at Disneyland in Anaheim. Hong Kong Disneyland does have a Fast Pass option where you can grab a ticket for an assigned time to return to the ride.
On the other hand, April is such a lovely time to visit with little risk of rain. The best thing to do is buy your park passes in advance so at least you can skip the ticket booth lines. And, go right when it opens. Disneyland Resort is very convenient make reservations for character dining there well in advance , but the MTR subway system is so good in Hong Kong that from Central and Kowloon, Disneyland is easy to get to regardless. We stayed at the Disneyland Hotel a few years ago and I was grateful for the convenient location to Disneyland but underwhelemed by the rooms.
I do not think they have renovated since then but am not sure. If you want to stay on the island look a little bit east or west of Central like Sheung Wan or Wan Chai though the latter can be busy with nightlife depending on where you are to save on cost. Kowloon is a little hectic for me, but also an excellent choice because you can MTR or ferry to Central easily. Central is also where the ferries to the outlying islands depart from.
I would say that the cheap shopping is mostly in Kowloon though it can be found in spots everywhere. Hope this helps! Also, Singapore is just plain awesome with kids. The Night Safari is a must-do as well as the zoo, bird park and Sentosa island attractions like Universal Studios. I took my daughter when she was 4 and she loved it.
Thank you for your advise on Disney. It is helping to plan my trip. Which attractions do you suggest to go first for me not to stay a long time in line. I really would love to know the ones that have a big line. Thanks, Leticia. Dumbo has a huge line always.
