We stayed at the HK Disneyland hotel for 3 days in June 2013. Overall it was a great experience. The hotel is very spacious and beautiful. Colonial architecture remixed with Disney characters. Mickey is everywhere, sometime subtle (in the carpet design in the lobbies) sometimes in your face (food, elevator voice). The hotel grounds are fabulous, green gardens, fountains and beautiful pools. We upgraded to a room with a balcony, which overlooked the sea and the fishing pier which was really pretty.
Overall the experience is great and worth the money that you pay for it. Though there are a few improvement areas to make traveler experience better.
1) The checkin lobby is small and if you arrive earlier than the check in time and your room isnt ready, there's hardly any place to sit. The lobby gets packed. If you are early just sit in the cafe near reception and order some drinks, its worth it
2) food - there is not much of a choice (especially for vegetarians - my wife is a vegetarian and found that she had hardly and choice to eat). The food is also very expensive. typical Disney prices, 2 to 3 times of what you would pay as compared to a similar resturant elsewhere.
3) The special room decoration - we asked for a special room decoration, its a part of they deals that they give. All they did was add a couple of decals on teh door and the window of disney characters and some ballons and placemats. I expected more somehow.
but one thing that made the experience quite nice was teh disney makeover. it comes at an extra cost (like everything in disneyland) but its quite nice. for about 1000 HK dollars they do a princess makeover including the dress and makeup. My daughter enjoyed it
lastly, when we were returning from the park to teh hotel on teh first day, we wondered if staying in the resort hotel was something that we could have avoided altogether. Disneyland is not too far away from HK central and is well connected with the MTR. You anyways cant walk back to your hotel from teh park, you have to take a shuttle bus (long queues at the end of the day) might as well wait in teh queues for the bus to the MTR and stay in HK, somewhere near Tsim Sha Sui or Central, which is a 120 HK dollar cab ride away.
