Big things are ahead for Hong Kong’s little park — starting with the announcement that their new hotel, Disney’s Explorers Lodge, is just weeks from opening. The new hotel is set to welcome its first guests on April 30th.
Explorers Lodge will be the resort’s third hotel, joining Disney’s Hollywood Hotel and the Hong Kong Disneyland Hotel, and will hold 750 rooms among four wings (this brings the resort’s room total to 1,750). Enfolding the four wings, there’s the Kevin Garden, themed to South America and named for the colorful bird in Up, the Little Squirt Garden of Oceania named after the Crush’s son in Finding Nemo,; the Hathi Jr. Garden named for the baby elephant from The Jungle Book in the heart of Asia, and the Rafiki Garden on the African Savannah with a name, of course, in allusion to The Lion King.
The hotel will be home to three new dining locations: Dragon Wind, World of Color Resturant, and Chart Room Cafe. Additionally, The Trading Post promises to be the best place in the hotel to find artifacts and memorabilia.
Reservations are now available for Disney’s Explorers Lodge. Opening special offers are also available at the Hong Kong Disneyland website and by calling Reservation Centre hotline at (852)-1-830-830. Guests can enjoy a complimentary character buffet breakfast for two adults in the Chinese restaurant Dragon Wind and a photo moment with a Disney character, or a 20% discount with the “2 Nights Plus Offer”. Guests who book for a standard room will also enjoy free upgrade to a deluxe room. Magic Access Members can enjoy the Hotel Room Seasonal Offer of up to 25% off!
