New Explorers Lodge opens at Hong Kong Disneyland

HK DisneylandLast week saw Hong Kong Disneyland Resort officially open its new onsite accommodation option, the Explorers Lodge. The establishment features 750 accommodation units and provides guests with matchless themed experiences not available at other hotels in the Disney Parks chain.

Walt Disney Parks’ managing director for Asia, Bill Ernest, told reporters at the opening ceremonies the guest experience at the Explorers Lodge had been elevated to new heights. He continued by saying the lodge itself was an architectural masterpiece set against the exotic landscapes of the waterfront at Lantau Island.

Mr Ernest explained that guests would be able to embark on an exotic global odyssey with their favourite Disney legends. Features of the hotel have been garnered from locations as far afield as Costa Rica, Ivory Coast and Papua New Guinea. The collection covers an estimated 1,000 artefacts and images.

The Jungle Book’s Hathi Junior is one of four gardens depicting different areas of the globe and named after popular Disney characters. The Rain Drop Pool, Dreamer’s Spring and priority entry to Disneyland and its stage shows add to the bonuses of a stay at the Explorers Lodge.

The Trading Post is the merchandising outlet at the Explorers Lodge. It sells more than 20 Disney products which are only available in Hong Kong. Three different dining venues cater to all culinary tastes.

The Dragon Wind serves up gourmet Chinese specialities. Staff here are dressed as Disney characters but in safari gear. International favourites are on the menu at the World of Colour while the Chart Room offers brewed coffees, sandwiches, snacks, ice-cream and pasta-based dishes.
