Last week, I shared with you some tips for navigating Disneyland Hong Kong and how to maximize your time there. Well, this week lets take things a little more easy and I’ll show you some of the hotel where I stayed and the food I ate there. Its Scrumptious Saturday after all – relax a little! :D
I put up at the Disneyland Hollywood Hotel which is one of 2 hotels in the Park. The hotel is done up in a slightly retro style reminiscent of Hollywood in maybe the 50’s with cinematic references throughout. If you have ever watched some of the original Mickey Mouse cartoons of Mickey as a movie director, this has that sort of feel.
The other hotel is the Hong Kong Disneyland Hotel which is done up in a more Southern style. Both hotels are easily accessible to the Park with a free shuttle bus provided, that runs at very regular intervals so waiting time is at a minimum. Check in time is at 3pm but you are assigned a room, and you can leave your luggage with the porter, and head out to the park for the day, then come back and get into your room in the evening.
While you are sitting around the hotel and any building in Disneyland, you have to play this little game – Spot the Hidden Mickey! The designers have incorporated the 3 circles symbol of Mickey Mouse into the design and architecture of the buildings and its great fun to try to spot them. They are also incorporated into Disney cartoons and movies, if you didn’t realize it ;) So tell me, do you spot the Hidden Mickey?
