We went in the second week of january 2014 and stayed at the Kingdom club room at the HK disneyland hotel.
Booking: we booked over the phone and was lucky enough to get someone who was able to converse in passable english. The hotel does provide for airport transfer but i would suggest taking a cab as that is way cheaper (150HKD).
Check in: we arrived at 2330hrs and so had to drag up our luggage to our rooms ourselves (which i did not much appreciate),other than 2 front desk staff the hotel seem deserted at the time, but if you arrive during the day that would not be the case as the kingdom club room comes with an exclusive checkin available on the 7th floor at the kingdom club lounge.
Rooms: The rooms were very comfortable, even with the AC turned on, the air seemed a bit stuffy but could be easily remedied by opening the door to the balcony. The TV is a standrd package with pay movies available at a cost. Cartoon DVDs are available for free from the kingdom club lounge if the rug rats need to be entertained.
Food: The Kingdom Club Room comes with breakfast at the Kingdom Club Lounge, which my husband and son enjoyed and the service too is good. An all day facility for tea or coffee and biscuits is available. For lunch, we ate at the disney park everday considering that we were there through the day and in the evening the lounge provides apetisers that are quite sufficient if you are not in for a big meal but otherwise the hotel boasts of 3 resuturants which have their own charm.
Pros: The hotel is cheaper on a weekday and that would be wiser than going on a weekend; there is also the added benefit of being able to obtain a silver magic access card (Disneyland park tickets) that cannot be used on the weekend. The silver card reduces the room rate by 10% and gives a further 10% discount on all shops within the hotel and the park. The hotel provides a bus shuttle to the park which is very covenient and runs every 10-15mins. We did not opt for any of the charecter breakfasts or dinners as we met all the charecters in the park.
Cons: Avoid late arrival as the service at night is virtually non-existent. Beware that it is commonplace in HK for people to rush and cut queues where possible which we found annoying at the start but realised that this is just their way. Language can be a problem outside the hotel so plan out your trips outside disneyland well. Fireworks can be viewed from your balcony if your balcony faces the front, which ours did, but unfortunately there was a big tree right in front. So we had to keep moving around the balcony, playing dodgeball with the tree to view the fireworks.
Disneyland Park: The park was simply brilliant. My 8yr old son who is more of a superhero fan totally loved it. make sure you do not miss any of the shows, they are just superb and personally was the highlight of the trip. There is a train that can take you around the park which is quite enjoyable by itself, but is not a requirement to get from one place to another. the distance between the different areas of the park are easily accessible by foot and for those with little ones, the park does provide a stroller for hire.
