I just returned from my first ever Disney cruise and I can honestly say that it’ll be hard to go back to regular vacationing after this trip. The cruise we chose was a 7 night / 8 day adventure out of San Diego down to the Mexican Riviera, and it was perfect. Following is a topline overview of our trip and some general thoughts.
I stayed at the Hollywood Hotel on my recent trip to Hong Kong in June. Truth be told I was debating between this hotel and the Explorer Lodge. Hollywood won out in the end due to price (although it was only a smidge less expensive than Disney’s Explorer Lodge). Because I booked this the day before I arrived, it ended up being close to $288.
I spent two extremely lovely nights at the Disneyland Hotel in November and have been dying to go back ever since. This hotel is as classy as they come with the perfect amount of Disney sparkle. First, a couple of things to note about staying at ANY of the Disney Resort hotels in Hong Kong: all rooms come with special Priority Admission Passes for select attractions in the park along with a special entrance gate for hotel guests only. This is a nice perk as Hong Kong Disneyland does not have a Magic Morning or Extra Magic Hours type access for hotel guests. (I will say that lines in general seem to be rather short, so I didn’t even need to use my Priority Passes.)
