...just one of the wonderful quotes you get from a Disney movie, but more or less describes what I was thinking the first time I met (eye-balled) my wife, 35 years ago..and with that milestone, yes, this is another but updated review of DEL, aka 'oh no!not another anniversary!' ..another weekender....no problems at arrival/departure, as always...once again being provided with perfect accomodation, etc based on previous trips...which is proof that mgmt does take care of its customers, including return guests.....the property recently re-started 24/7 operations (as the pandemic situation seems improving for the better) so there were noticeably a lot more people on hotel grounds... ...all F&B outlets were open, running to full capacity each meal session, so do remember to make reservations....we didnt include breakfast in our package this time so that location/menu was kept open.... the breakfast rooms at the resort are still serving set menus, including Chart Room Cafe, where we decided to takeaway our breakfast from (after our morning walk in the garden/along sea), iso going to the restaurant since the kids slept in, deservingly taking a break from the week's routines... ..after breakfast, we went for the usual RAINDROP POOL swim (having booked a slot on arrival date), before heading out for lunch in the park...i believe this time each session is longer than last visit...but other guests had the same idea so even at 1000, the pool capacity was max...but it was still relaxing and fun..clean...friendly staff, as usual.. ...dinner was at World of Colour...weekend/special set menu..no complaints about quality/quantity/service vs price ...but maybe we've been here more often than we should in the past 1-2 years, and although we do have our favourites, we've probably tried everything on the menu, bfast/lunch/tea & dinner, making us hope the menu will be updated or have additional items when we next visit... ...nothing negative to comment on the actual accomodation as its how we like it, clean, spacious. a great view, providing a homey comfortable atmosphere, whether watching a movie or playing board games....but i did notice a new option for guest to order minibar items (as a set..price is actually reasonable, comparing with 7-11 prices, for example)..noticed it too late though so wasnt able to arrange it...maybe next time ...there are new Recreation activities for all here in DEL and also next to HK Disneyland Hotel...mgmt continues to be creative, keeping busy coming up with facilities to keep guests occupied during their staycations......'Bravo, everyone, Mr Moriarty and ALL!.... ...with thanks to ROMEO (pre-arrival), JACKY & TIFFANY (check in), SAM & JACKY (pool/dinner reservation), THOMPSON @World of Colour, w/EDEN & FANNY (dinner), CHARLIE & SAM (departure day, breakfast), BLAIR (check out) , Jasmine, Edmond, Hang, Donny, GSM Team for assisting with various issues, KIRA/ALYCIA who made sure transportation arrangement went well for my daughter needing to leave for work earlier than normal....but special mention goes to KC, who more or less led by example, taking charge and ensuring customer service/hospitality standards was always provided, whether to me & fam or to all other lodge guests that weekend, &or everyday' ...and finally loudest shoutout is for the man, Joe Fung, who was actually n/a during this trip, but still kept in touch &or remained involved (through his team/castmembers on duty),...'We sincerely appreciate everything you do for us, JF, making each visit better than the one before, just as should everyone who come and enjoy their stays at your Lodge'...

Our room was not available until 4-5pm. Checked in on 12-September and we were given ONLY ONE “16th Anniversary button”. Requested to have one more but was rejected by the staff. This is the only Disney hotel worldwide that refused to provide buttons to guest. It seemed ridiculous and immediate felt not happily ever after.

1. Benefit cuts with price surge I was told that the free parking has been cancelled one day before arrival when I make further enquiry with reservation hotline. I was told that fast pass has been cut for hotel guest since 1 July at Front Desk Counter upon check-in. Although they waive such charges during the stay, hotel should consider its inferior transportation. It is a wrong decision to cut free parking. 2. No clean and proper changing room at pool Under this packed season, all swimming pool session was full and we have been allotted to use the pool at 12:00 next day after check-out. As we have checked out, we are told to use a public unclean toilet to clean our clothes with kids. And, there is merely one shower cubical for users. Finally, we need to change our clothes in public toilet and wait 10 minutes under air-conditioning environment for shower. I need to walk with my bare foot through the garden. The locker is outdoor and extremely tiny. I used 4 lockers to pack my things. When I ask for help from a male pool staff, he asked me to put my belonging on the bench but watch out myself. 3. No smiles / happiness from hotel staffs I can meet smile at the shop. I can feel most staffs are not happy at work and intense. Actually, under this epidermic situation, hotel management should be happy they are earning abnormal profit compared to others and treat their staff better. To conclude, it is difficult for me to stay again in Hong Kong Disney Hotel.

Despite the huge crowd checking in, the hotel made it more bearable by issuing electronic ticket and reminded you when your turn was up through sms. The staff also forewarned us that it would take 45 minutes. This allowed my family and I to enjoy our late lunch in one of the restaurant while waiting for our turn to check-in. Although this was our second time, the hotel had some new art workshop for the kids to join. The hotel also demonstrated flexibility by letting in walk-in guests to the pool when those signed-up didn't show up. Overall, nice work in trying to keep the large check-in crowd happy.

The hotel is completely full during summer. - Check-in takes more than 45 mins - Terribly long queues everywhere - Swimming pool is full for all the sessions during the stay upon check-in - All other kid facilities are full It’s my most terrible family hotel stay. It is a total rip-off with almost full pricing of the room. Very disappointed with Disney Corp.
