Hong Kong Disneyland is one of Hong Kong’s top attractions, and its biggest and most popular theme park.
Though Hong Kong Disneyland (‘HKD’) is a wee bit smaller than its other counterparts in Asia, such as Tokyo Disney Resort in Japan, and Shanghai Disneyland Park in Mainland China, it still has a lot of amazing attractions, some of which can’t be found anywhere else.
However, if you’ve ever been to any Disneyland, regardless of the country, you already know what to expect. The two biggest gripes are always that tickets and food aren’t cheap, and at peak times the lines for rides and attractions can be crazy long.
But with a bit of planning—and with our list of the best discount websites and offers to help you save money—you can plan your trip to Hong Kong Disneyland without breaking the bank, and make the most of your time.
Health safety measures
All visitors to HKD will be required to undergo temperature screening and wear face masks.
Social distancing measures are in place for queues, restaurants, attraction vehicles and other facilities. Character experiences requiring close interaction and close-up photos are temporarily suspended.
Online reservations are also required before your visit to manage guest numbers (more on that below).
General tips for visiting Hong Kong Disneyland
Use public transport
Located on the northern part of beautiful Lantau Island, HKD is easily accessed by public transportation.
Though you could take a taxi, it is much cheaper to simply take the MTR to Sunny Bay, and then switch to the Disneyland Resort Line, which goes directly into Hong Kong Disneyland.
If you were staying in Tsim Sha Tsui, for example, the total journey time (one way) by MTR would be 39 minutes, and cost just HK$24.50 (or HK$21.50 with an Octopus travel card)—far less than what any taxi would charge.
Avoid weekends and public holidays
This is a no brainer as HKD becomes very crowded on public holidays and weekends, particularly on Sundays (many Hong Kongers work on Saturdays). Under no circumstances should you try to go during Chinese New Year, or during China’s Golden Week, when bus loads of tourists arrive pretty much non-stop.
Best time to go? Definitely the middle of the week when everyone is at work or school. The park hours are 10:30 am to 7:30 pm, so you could either get there early to arrive at opening time, or, alternatively, arrive in the afternoon and stay until closing time.
Take advantage of discounts
If you’re reading this, then we already know you like to plan ahead and get the most bang for your buck. But this often takes time, digging through the internet to find discounts, coupons, and special offers. Lucky for you, we’ve already done that. Read on to see where to score the best discounts.
Hong Kong Disneyland discounts and special offers
|Tickets||Hong Kong Disney||Klook||Details|
|Standard 1-day pass|
|Standard 2-day pass|
|Double the Happiness + Meal promo|
|2-Day Fun Package||N/A|
Hong Kong Disneyland tickets are cheaper when purchasing through ticket platform sites like Klook, compared to buying directly from the official site.
The current Double the Happiness + Meal promo is exceptional value if you have the time to visit twice and want the full Disney experience.
If you’re going to spend all day there, you’ll need to eat at least one meal in the park. The two current promotions (Double the Happiness and the 2-Day Fun Pass) include a meal or snack, respectively.
If you purchase the 1-Day or 2-Day Pass, you can add on a meal voucher. You can choose from lunch or dinner—or both for a bit more—at a designated restaurant (drink included), plus a snack of either a frozen lollipop or a bag of popcorn.
There’s also a dim sum lunch set at Disney’s Crystal Lotus restaurant serving up cute characters, but it’s on the pricer side.
Reservations for Hong Kong Disneyland
Once you have puchased tickets, you will need to make a reservation through the official HKD website within 7 days prior to visiting. This is required to reduce capacity as part of COVID-19 safety measures.
