Hong Kong Disneyland Tickets And Annual Passes

It’s always best to organise your Disneyland tickets in advance. Currently, you can book your visit seven days in advance using the online reservation system.

One-Day Standard Tickets

Adults – $639; Kids (aged 3 to 11) – $475; Seniors (aged 65+) – $100; Kids (under 3) – FREE!

Disneyland Discounted Tickets

Always keep your eye out for special resident deals and packages. KKDay also offers some good deals, discounts and packages.

Hong Kong Disneyland Magic Access Passes

If you think your family will be enjoying multiple days out at Disneyland then it might be worth investing in a Magic Access Pass. Choose from Silver, Gold or Platinum passes; the main difference being the blockout dates. Generally speaking, with a Silver pass you CAN’T get the perks on weekends, public holidays and for a couple of weeks over Chinese New Year and in the summer. The Gold pass only restricts you over Chinese New Year. There are no blockout dates with the Platinum pass.

There are other benefits too, including dining and merchandise discounts, free parking (with gold and platinum) and other special offers. Be sure to check the fine print — some dining offers are only available for certain months of the year and some outlets are excluded.

Plan Your Day At Hong Kong Disneyland – Opening Hours, Maps & Tips

Covering the entire park in a day is possible but can be tricky when you’ve got little ones who want to take a break or grab a bite at the nearest popcorn stand. Be sure to note these tips:

  • Get there as soon as you can to maximise your time — the park’s opening hours are from 10am to 9pm.
  • Make sure you download the Hong Kong Disney app. An absolute must for any Disney adventure, the app includes wait times for rides and attractions, maps, schedules and more, making it easier than ever to make the most of your time in the Magic Kingdom!
  • Get the kids involved in your planning. Prioritise their favourite rides (more on that coming up!) and plan to tick these big hitters off as soon as you get to the park.
  • The audio guides, available at the Guest Relations on Main Street, U.S.A., are another handy tool to help you make your way around the park and feature helpful information about attractions, rides and services at Hong Kong Disney. While a deposit of $1,000 is required to rent a guide, this deposit is refundable as long as you return the guide before the park closes for the day.
  • Keep an eye out for PhotoPass locations where you can have professional photos taken of you and your family. While you can view the photos online or on the Disney HK app, there are also various photo sale locations scattered around the entire park where you can purchase a more permanent souvenir of your magical day.
  • If you’re visiting during a festive time like Chinese New Year, Halloween or Christmas, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a place that gets more into the festive spirit than Disneyland. Don’t forget to factor in any special seasonal events and attractions into your schedule — they’re not to be missed!

Hong Kong Disneyland Rides, Attractions And Shows

You have seven lands to visit: Adventureland, Fantasyland, Tomorrowland, Grizzly Gulch, Mystic Manor, Toy Story Land and the newly opened Frozen World.

If you have the two-day ticket, divide your time between the different lands by seeing half on your first day and the remaining half on your last. Whichever land you’re in, indulge yourself in some live Disney entertainment and be sure to check out the showtimes.

If you are there for a day, you may not be able to cover all the lands, so pick the characters, stories and themes that your children (and the accompanying adults!) are most familiar with and fond of.

Also, keep an eye out for special themed events like the Marvel Season of Super Heroes, which runs from Friday, 26 April to Monday, 10 June 2024. Families can head over to Tomorrowland to hang out with their friendly neighbourhood Spider-Man or talk tech with Iron Man, as well as shop for Marvel-themed collectibles and snacks. Guests staying at Disney’s Hollywood Hotel also get to enjoy special Marvel surprises.

Best Disneyland Rides For Kids Under 5

Our young kids are big fans of The Many Adventures Of Winnie The Pooh ride (this is a hugely popular one so put it early in your schedule!), Dumbo The Flying Elephant and the Cinderella Carousel in Fantasyland, the Jungle River Cruise in Adventureland (watch out for the scarily-real fires!) and the Slinky Dog Spin (although the under-threes might get a bit scared by the speed) in Toy Story Land.

Best Disneyland Rides For Older Kids

Tomorrowland is sure to be a hit with older kids and teens with rides like the Iron Man Experience, Ant-Man And The Wasp and Hyperspace Mountain. There are also some great options in Toy Story Land with the Toy Soldier Parachute Drop and the Big Grizzly Mountain Runaway Mine Cars in Grizzly Gulch.

Disneyland Rides With Air Conditioning

When you need a break from the outdoors put It’s A Small World and Mickey’s PhilharMagic on the agenda. Both let you sit down in some much-needed A/C!

Shows And Other Attractions At Hong Kong Disneyland

Hong Kong Disneyland

Word’s out! The Hong Kong Disneyland Railroad is back on track this month after its five-year closure! Mark your calendars as the Hong Kong Disneyland Railroad resumes service on Sunday November 17, 2023, offering guests a magically nostalgic perspective of the park.

In addition to catching all of your favourite princesses and characters, be sure to catch the Mickey And The Wondrous Book show as your little ones will be dazzled by the performance, or let them test their lightsaber skills with some Jedi Training at Tomorrowland with a chance to fight Darth Vader himself. The Festival Of The Lion King is fantastic for all ages and our tip for the Moana show is to get your kids seats at the front so they can join in the singing and dancing!

Do you have a bit of an artistic streak? Enrol your kids in the Animation Academy, where they can learn to draw Disney and learn about the magic behind their favourite cartoons.

Hong Kong Disneyland Fireworks

The night-time show “Momentous” takes visitors on a 20-minute heartwarming journey through your favourite Disney classics. You can expect the Disney castle to come to life with multimedia projections, theatrical lighting, lasers, choreographed fountains, pyrotechnics and, of course, fireworks! The timing of the fireworks vary and it’s on every night except for Wednesdays — check the calendar to be sure you don’t miss it.

Food At Hong Kong Disneyland

It will take all your willpower not to indulge in some of the famous Mickey-themed treats. So, why deny yourself?

You can check out all the Disney dining options before you go, but some of our favourites are the Disney-themed dim sum at Crystal Lotus (in the Hong Kong Disneyland Hotel) and Mickey-shaped doughnuts and waffles at the Main Street Bakery, as well as the famous Mango Dole Whip, found at Jessie’s Snack Roundup in Toy Story Land with some piping hot churros – the perfect amusement park snack!

Dietary needs and allergies? No problem. Check this guide out before you go and find out more about how all of your family’s needs can be managed and accommodated before you head off to the Magic Kingdom, including requesting special meals.

Can You Bring Your Own Food To Disneyland?

The good news is yes, you can! If you can’t bear the thought of spending unnecessarily, want some healthier options or have some particularly fussy eaters, don’t fret. You’re allowed to bring your own lunch, snacks, fruit and baby food from home. Just find a comfy outdoor space to enjoy it. Another good tip would be to bring your own water bottles before heading to Disney as a bottle there can easily go for $24! There are refill stations located around the park (usually near the restrooms).

How To Get To Hong Kong Disneyland

MTR to Hong Kong Disneyland

This is probably the most convenient way for most families to get to Disneyland. Take the Tung Chung line to Sunny Bay and switch to the dedicated Disneyland train — complete with Mickey-shaped windows!

Catching the bus to Hong Kong Disneyland

The R8 bus runs from the Lantau Link Toll Plaza (via Inspiration Lake between 9am and 7pm) and costs just $7.

Taxi or Uber to Hong Kong Disneyland

If you prefer to travel on your own schedule, an Uber or Taxi from Central Hong Kong will take about 30 to 40 minutes and cost $250 to $350. Please note though this is highly dependent on traffic and where exactly you are travelling from.

Hong Kong Disneyland Car Park

There is a large, open-air car park right next to Hong Kong Disneyland Resort, along with additional parking available at each of the hotels and Inspiration Lake. There’s also a drop-off/pick-up zone if you want to drop the kids (with a responsible adult of course!) closer to the gates.

Disneyland’s car park rates: Disneyland Park – $240 per day; Hotels – $50 per hour (free with hotel booking); Inspiration Lake – $40 per hour. Car parking is free with your Gold or Platinum Magic Pass

Weather And When To Visit Hong Kong Disneyland

Our favourite time to visit Hong Kong Disneyland would be from October to January. Hong Kong’s winter isn’t too severe and even little ones will be able to handle it with the right amount of layers. Plus, the decorations for Halloween, Christmas and Chinese New Year are stunning and the ambience of Disneyland during the holidays is simply magical!

During the summer months, the heat and humidity can get oppressive. Be sure to pack your sunscreen, hats, sunglasses and water bottles.

Sassy Mama Tip: If you are visiting in summer consider treating yourself with a stay at one of the hotels. You can then hit the park as it opens, retire for a siesta and swim in the heat of the day, and return late in the afternoon when crowds have eased.

Hong Kong Disneyland Opening Hours

The park is open every day from 10am to 9pm.

Opening hours are sometimes extended for special events and holidays, so be sure to check the website or app for your chosen date.

Visiting Hong Kong Disneyland During A T3 Typhoon

We’ve all been there, the tickets are booked, the bags are packed and that notification comes up on your phone that there is a T3 Typhoon warning. In all likelihood, there might only be a hint of a breeze but unfortunately, it does mean that many of the rides at Hong Kong Disneyland will close.

Only indoor rides will operate while the T3 signal is hoisted. This means no Mad Hatter Teacups, Cinderella Carousel or Dumbo The Flying Elephant in Fantasyland (only Winnie the Pooh, It’s A Small World and Mickey’s PhilharMagic stay open). There are a few more rides in Tomorrowland (which the big kids will like) and performances like The Lion King still run.

Our verdict… if you have an annual pass and don’t mind the limited rides you can still have a fun day out. If this is your only trip to Hong Kong Disneyland or you’ve been saving this special family day as a treat for the kids, try and reschedule so you can get your money’s worth from your ticket. The T3 warning might deter visitors, but the ones who do visit will all be vying for the same few rides so you can still expect queues!

Hong Kong Disneyland Hotels

In true Disney fashion, Disneyland hotels are decked out with all kinds of fun paraphernalia, making it an absolute dream come true for your kids!

There are three hotels on offer: Hong Kong Disneyland Hotel, Disney Explorer’s Lodge and Disney’s Hollywood Hotel. Special offers change from time to time, so make sure to check out the website for information on promotions and vacation packages – you can usually find some good deals if you plan ahead and keep up with its seasonal and special offers.

The Disneyland Hotel is very traditional with that old-school Victorian grandeur. It’s got a great pool, a playground, an outdoor maze and an indoor kids’ room. There’s often entertainment to get you into the Disney spirit from the moment you step through the door and you can treat your little princesses to a Disney makeover at the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique.

Sassy Mama Tip: This is the closest of the hotels to the park (about a 10 to 15 minute walk to the entrance) and a free shuttle is offered.

Explorer’s Lodge is a little cheaper than the Disneyland Hotel, but also more modern while the Hollywood Hotel is the most affordable of the three options, but also looking a little tired these days.

Sassy Mama Tip: You can use any of the hotel facilities across the properties no matter where you choose to stay.

Family-Friendly Facilities At Hong Kong Disneyland

They always say to travel light, but if you’ve got little ones to take care of, packing light isn’t exactly an option. Luckily, the park offers a variety of family-friendly services for your convenience:

  • The Baby Care Center located on Main Street, USA is the spot to feed, change and nurse your tykes. It’s staffed in case you need an extra hand and there are two nursing rooms with chairs (although the park is definitely breastfeeding-friendly everywhere!), a feeding area with high chairs, and a kitchen with a fridge, microwave and sink! There are also six companion restrooms conveniently located all over the park.
  • Strollers can sometimes get in the way. Don’t worry, stroller parking is available all over the park and outside every ride (keep your valuables with you though!). However, if you want your kids to run free without a stroller throughout the day, storage lockers are available for rental. You can always rent a stroller for the day ($150 per day plus a refundable $100 deposit).

Extra Disneyland Tips From Sassy Mama

Sassy Mama number peach 1If you have enthusiastic kids, plan to arrive at 10am. Not only will you be at the front of the queue, but entry to Main Street USA will start around 10:20am, so you can get to your chosen “land” by the time the rides start operating. That, or grab a well-needed coffee before the chaos!

Sassy Mama number peach 2Speaking of timing, if you’ve made the early start you should be able to get on three to four rides by 11:30am and maybe two more by 12:30pm. After 5pm, the lines are normally shorter again.

Sassy Mama number peach 3If you’re visiting in the summer heat, plan to watch the shows in the afternoon. This will give everyone a chance to rest tired legs and restore a second wind.

Sassy Mama number peach 4If you have a young child who still naps, take your own stroller. They’re far more likely to relax and have a snooze if it is familiar.

Sassy Mama number peach 5Plan to leave the park at least 20 to 30 minutes before closing. You’ll beat the transport crowds and save yourself time for the journey home when you’re all sure to be tired.

Sassy Mama number peach 6If you plan to visit more than three times a year, invest in the Gold Pass. If it is just a one-off visit, be sure to check for deals on KKDay.
