Hong Kong Disneyland Opens a Whole New World

Hong Kong Disneyland certainly knows how to appeal to intrepid adventurers. The Lantau-based theme park has just introduced a magical, new wonderland made for both the young and young-at-heart: Disney Explorers Lodge, a 750-room resort hotel that harkens to an era filled with discoveries and exploration.

As with many of Mickey Mouse’s playgrounds, the property comes with a backstory—the world’s bravest travelers built it in the 1920s to serve as a treasure chest for their precious acquisitions. A thousand of these “memorabilia” are now displayed prominently all over the resort. True to this tale, the resort’s interiors took their cues from the continents that the founders have conquered: the vast African savannah, the lush forests of South America, a glittering island paradise in Oceania, and mysterious Asia.

Exploring the hotel grounds is a feast for the senses, where rare flora can be found, alongside a picturesque garden that serves as a sanctuary for delicate butterflies. Gastronomic delights are served here, thanks to three restaurants that serve international and Chinese cuisines.

For kids however, the biggest draw is getting up close and personal with Mickey, Minnie Mouse, Goofy, and Donald Duck as they traipse around the place wearing their brand-new, hip adventurers’ outfits. Surely, nothing tops that.
