Is Hong Kong a good place for a family trip?
Especially if you spend a day exploring all the different types of public transport in the city.
But first, there’s the question of finding the best hotels in Hong Kong for families.

No.1: Hong Kong Disneyland Hotel
Hong Kong Disneyland Resort, Magic Rd, Lantau Island, Hong Kong
The Hong Kong Disneyland Hotel is the best way to experience the magic of Disney with lots of little treats, family friendly amenities, unique Disney touches and first-class service.
If you can stretch it, we’d suggest booking into a Kingdom Club room or suite.
If your kids LOVE Disney characters, and you want to surprise them with something out of this world, it’s worth it.
Activities for kids at Hong Kong Disney hotel
Kids can enjoy the fun of:
- a colonial style playground
- a “Mickey” maze typical of classical english garden mazes
- a Children’s Activity Centre where children can craft, play games, watch movies, read
- Storybook Playroom, where kids can come after dark to listen to a story read by a cast member
- HK Disneyland character greetings too.
Little girls are invited to transform into real-life princesses at the enchanted salon on Level 1 that offers magical make-up, hairstyle and costume makeovers.
As committed Disney fans, we wholeheartedly suggest you book a table for one of your meals at the Enchanted Garden Restaurant.
It’s an opportunity to meet a host of Disney Friends, up close and personal, as they join you at your table for hugs, photos and autographs.
Remember to add a Room Decoration package to your booking for an extra scoop of glittery Disney magic!
