The Hong Kong Disneyland Hotel, completed in 2005, is a six-storey 400-room deluxe low-rise Victorian-style hotel on a waterfront site next to a purpose-built jetty at Hong Kong Disneyland Resort. Being a Disney branded hotel, this “American Victorian” timber-like resort has a unique architectural language and an iconic façade design that is similar to the award-winning Disney flagship Grand Floridian Hotel in Orlando.
The initial design work, up to the schematic stage, was completed by Walt Disney Imagineering and Wimberly Allison Tong & Goo. RLP was responsible for subsequent design development and documentation work. RLP and our Hong Kong consultant team had to resolve numerous challenges – design, co-ordination, statutory, and construction related – in order to realise Disney’s vision of “combining the splendour of a vintage seaside resort with the magic of Disney.”
The hotel is a work of art. Its distinctive off-white external walls contrast with the reddish asphalt shingle pitch roof, making an immediate striking impression. The main entrance leads to the six-storey Grand Salon, with its feature cage elevator and a full-height glass wall that opens on to an elegant Victorian garden, blending views of lush greenery with a beautiful sea view to the south.
The hotel also offers seven F&B outlets, a large conference centre with several meeting rooms, two swimming pools, a spa, a gymnasium, a “Mickey Maze”, and other deluxe hotel amenities – providing a magical and relaxing experience for visitors.
