School terms keep kids in school and parents sane. Holidays can be boring to kids if they are left alone. Discuss vacation ideas and how to make good use of the free time for both children and adults.

Novotel hotel at city gate is pretty near and it has daily to and fro coach to Disneyland and it was refurbished 1 or 2 years back. You may want to check in it. It's a great place for shopping too.

Hi,

Just sharing.
Pls remember to accompany your kids all the time at HK disneyland & Citigate outlet.

It happened to me during my Y2010 trip that my eldest daughter almost get kidnapped by one mainland 40++lady at Citigate outlet.

I also heard some cases in HK Disneyland.

Frankly speaking, I prefer SG than HK.

Try to avoid HK/China school holiday/public holiday.
Else be prepared to queue for at least 60mins for popular rides.

Anyway, enjoy ur trip.

oh..regarding hotel.

I stayed at Royal View Hotel at Tsuen Wan for 3nights in Y2010.
The room not bad, quite cheap(SGD100+/night). It's hard to get this price of room at HK downtown.
The hotel provides free shuttle bus service to nearest MTR(Tsuen Wan荃灣 &Tsing Yi青衣) & to HK but this MTR station is not near to HK downtown. From 青衣 to Disneyland is just a few MTR stops.
The hotel also provides free shuttle to HK downtown also.

U can actually stay 1 day in Disney hollywood and the rest in town area. Eaton Hotel or Kimberly is not bad.

Hyatt Shatin is good. Though it is at New Territories, it is very convenient by MTR(just beside the hotel) and they have free shuttle bus to Hyatt Tsim Sha Tsui. It is 2 MTR stops (can take the free shuttle too) away from Snoopy World. It is a very new hotel and is much cheaper than the Hyatt at Tsim Sha Tsui. It has a kids club, a nice swimming pool and if you stay at the club level, the food and beverages served by the lounge is also quite good.

If you don't mind changing hotels, it is a good experience to stay at Disney Hotel for 1 to 2 nights cause I think the Disney hotel in Hong Kong is one of the cheapest Disney Hotel in the world. We did not stay in the Disney Hotel when we were in Hong Kong as we do not want to change hotel (not very convenient to stay there throughout the trip as it us far from everywhere else) Maybe will try next time when my boy is older.

Heard lots of horror story about missing kids before our trip to Hong Kong, so we always make sure that my boy is with either my hubby or me wherever we are, especially when we are at Disneyland. IMHO, we enjoyed ourselves at Singapore Universal studio more than Hong Kong Disneyland as the queues are very long at Hong Kong Disneyland and we went when the weather is very hot. Imagine queuing up under the hot sun for 1 hr just to take photos with Mickey and Minnie (there is no Toon Town, so Mickey and Minnie are out door). But for you, the weather should be quite cooling, so no problem about the hot sun.

Enjoy your trip to Hong Kong!

i went to Hong Kong with my son just recently... while we may always hear horror stories such as these of kidnaps, there's hardly any cause for major alarm... just adopt the same vigilance as we do here at home :) after all, isn't HK home to many parents just like us? :P

we enjoyed Disneyland, and found it much more enjoyable than universal studios SG... perhaps because we went in winter and the weather was a nice escape :)

look on the websites for disneyland hotels, we managed to score a good deal for hotel+entrance tickets :) :)

or if you're staying in other hotels for the duration, it's no problem commuting to disneyland, the train gets you there in a jiffy!

Try Noah Ark resort. It is a resort with a beautiful beach outside. Cheap and good for family of 5. I have been there with my family last Nov. Book the room for 4, only 700HK.
