Disneyland Hollywood Hotel Overview
We pursue our Hongkong trip for 4 days after I saw some bloggers/vloggers who went there 2-3 weeks before our scheduled date. Based on the Facebook page of Philippine Consulate General in Hong Kong the next protest schedule was September 28. On that day, we were scheduled to exit the country going to Macau already so I think we are safe to continue with our planned trip, and so we did!
For Day 1, I decided to book a hotel room for my family at Disney Resort Hollywood Hotel. It is near the airport and truth be told, minsan lang pumunta ng Disneyland so why not try their hotel kahit one night lang.
Our itinerary for Day 1 was supposed to go to Ngong Ping island to see the temples via cable car. But since they allowed us to check in as early as 10am (it was supposed to be 3pm), we decided to just stay in the room, sleep and just take a rest. We woke up around 4pm and decided to go have lunch/dinner at City Gate Outlet mall at Tung Chung station. Ang mahal kasi ng food sa hotel.
Disneyland Hollywood Hotel
I chose this hotel for the reason that it offers the cheapest rate among the 3 hotels in Disney Resort. It’s still quite expensive for around HK$1500 per night (more or less P10,000 per night), but if you want to experience Disney Hotel then you might want to consider checking in here. Take note that the price is higher for peak seasons.
As I have mentioned, they allowed us to check-in as early as 10am, that was 5 hours earlier than the published check-in time of 3pm.
Checking in was a breeze. They just asked for our passports, recorded it in their system and then gave us the key to our room.
Our room has a garden view in the 5th floor. It has 2 Double Beds.
I’m particular with bed and pillows and I can say that theirs did not disappoint. It was so comfy that we immediately snoozed after a few minutes of lying down.
The bathroom has a bath tub, but unfortunately they don’t have a bidet. The amenities includes the following:
They also have slippers in 4 different sizes.
At night time, kids can watch the Disney story exclusive in this hotel. Pangpatulog!
Outside the hotel, you’ll see these picturesque areas
You also have a complimentary pool access, but we were not able to use it. Sayang may dala pa naman akong pangligo.
Every guests also has this discount and gift voucher inside the room.
I like that they have an adaptor inside the room, di na kami bumili.
There is a complimentary bus from Disney park to all the 3 Disney Hotels. You can actually visit one after the other. We were only able to check 2 (our hotel – Hollywood and Disneyland Hotel. Hindi namin napuntahan ang Disney Explorer Lodge). My sister and her friend were able to check them all.
As much as we want to try their breakfast buffet, unfortunately the rate was over the top for us. Usually breakfast buffet here in the Philippines are already included in the room rate, but not in Disney Resort. It is to be purchased separately kahit ang mahal na ng hotel rate nila.
Buffet breakfast ranges from HK$258 or above, lunch is HK$338 or above and dinner is HK$428 or above.
Another advantage of hotel occupants was that we were given a priority pass for 4. We can use it for one show or ride inside the Disneyland Park.
But because there were only a few visitors during our trip, we were not able to use it. Waiting time at the park was only 5-10 minutes (more about this on my next post).
You can also find unique items inside the souvenir/merchandise area. But again, prices are high here.
I was asked if sulit nga ba mag stay sa Disneyland Hotel. The term “sulit” is the same with practicality. Well if you are on a tight budget, staying here is not recommended. It is not practical, period.
But if you think you’ll never be able go back here for another trip and you want to feel the ambiance of Mickey’s hotel or you want to be near the Disneyland park then you might want to consider staying here even for just a night.
