When I first planned to visit Hong Kong Disneyland, I had questions in my mind which weren't answered until I arrived in Hong Kong. So I want to impart this information to newbies who's going to plan this endeavor.
For first time visitors to Hong Kong Disneyland, these are the most frequently asked questions that will equip you for your trip. Questions are answered in Hollywood Express Vol. 5, Disney's Hollywood Hotel's newsletter.
Here are the following questions:
What is Hong Kong Disneyland?
Hong Kong Disneyland offers a world-class, unique family entertainment experience inspired by Disneyland in California, the original Disney Theme Park which opened over fifty years ago. It features some of the best classic attractions & entertainment from other Disney Parks around the world. Hong Kong Disneyland is designed for Guests to leave their troubles behind and enter a world of yesterday, tomorrow, adventure, and fantasy.
What is so special about Hong Kong Disneyland? And what are the differences of Hong Kong Disneyland versus other Disney Parks?
Hong Kong Disneyland features original Disney attractions with elements designed especially for Asian audiences. This is reflected in their Broadway-style shows, signature attractions, restaurants, parades, and fireworks. They use creativity and technology to tell their classic stories. For our convenience they also provide services not only in English but also in Putonghua & Cantonese.
Are there security services at Hong Kong Disneyland?
At Hong Kong Disneyland, the safety and security of the Guests is top priority. Their security hosts and hostesses are visible throughout the Theme Park and Hotels. Should there be an emergency, only touch Emergency 999 on the Guest room phone.
What should I do if I need to leave the Theme Park in the middle of the day and then come back for the fireworks?
As you exit the Park, simply make sure that you get a hand stamp at the turnstiles. You may enter and exit the Park anytime within the same day with your hand stamp and Park ticket.
Does Disney's Hollywood Hotel have Room Service?
Hollywood and Dine is a quick-service restaurant featuring open display cases where Guests are able to choose from a selection of sandwiches, fresh fruit, juice, and salads. Congee, dim sum, and noodles are also available as well as a selection of European-style pastries. Hollywood & Dine is open daily for breakfast, lunch, dinner and late evening snacks. Room Service is not available.
How do we use our in-room phone to make local or long distance phone calls?
For local calls, touch 9 + phone number. For long distance calls, touch 9 + 001 + Country Code + Area Code + number for long distance calls. For room-to-room dialing within Disney's Hollywood Hotel, touch "7" and the four digit room number. Touch Guest Services on the Guest room phone for long distance rates or if one wishes to contact the Hong Kong Disneyland Hotel.
Is there shuttle bus service to the Theme Park for Hotel Guests?
Yes, they have complimentary Resort Shuttle Bus Service running between their Hotels and the Theme Park on a daily basis. The Resort Shuttle stop is located outside of the main lobby to the left.
Will there be any fireworks tonight?
Yes, they have Disney in the Stars... A Sky Fantasy nightly. The show is subject to change depending on weather conditions.
Are there any recreation facilities in Inspiration Lake? If so, is it free of charge?
Guests enjoying the facility can choose from their walking trail, fitness stations, arboretum, gazebos, surrey bike rentals and pedal boat rentals. Nominal fees will be applied for the rental of surrey bikes and pedal boats. Just touch Guest Services on the telephone for more information.
Hopefully, some of these answers have satified most of the questions in your mind. But if not, leave some of it for a great surprise when you visit Hong Kong Disneyland and Disney's Hollywood Hotel itself! =)
