For years, guests of Hong Kong Disneyland Resort have enjoyed its two iconic hotels, Hong Kong Disneyland Hotel and Disney’s Hollywood Hotel. This year, however, the resort, catering to a growing demand, is adding a new hotel to the fray—the Disney Explorers Lodge, which set to open on April 30, 2017. We were recently sent a first set of photos of the hotel, and we’re excited to share them.
Per the press release:
At Disney Explorers Lodge, guests are inspired to explore and dream as they are immersed in the adventures of intrepid explorers, with the motto “ad explorare et somniare” (to explore and dream). The seven-storey Disney Explorers Lodge has 750 hotel rooms, each featuring an open sea view or a landscape view of one of the four lush themed gardens that exemplify the cultures of Asia, South America, Africa and Oceania.
Disney Explorers Lodge celebrates the golden age of exploration in the early 1920s, transporting guests to some of the most exotic corners of the world. The lodge displays artifacts and memorabilia—collected by the explorers over a lifetime of travel—in the hotel’s guest rooms, dining venues and other indoor and outdoor areas.
Enfolding the four wings of the hotel, these gardens are all named after characters from beloved Disney and Disney Pixar animated films. Kevin Garden, which has a South American theme, is named after the giant bird in “Up.” The Little Squirt Garden of Oceania celebrates the playful sea turtle from “Finding Nemo.” Named after the baby elephant from “The Jungle Book,” the Hathi Jr. Garden puts guests in the heart of Asia. The Rafiki Garden, which has an African Savannah theme, is named after the wise mandrill from “The Lion King.” Guests can also revel in the spirit of adventure by gazing into the Dreamer’s Spring or take a dip in the outdoor Rain Drop Pool.
As with the Hong Kong Disneyland Resort’s two other hotels, Disney Explorers Lodge is also a dining destination:
Dining in the three restaurants of the new hotel is as epic an adventure as exploring the hotel grounds. A taste of ancient Chinese wisdom is served at Dragon Wind, where guests can savor signature delights from rural and classical provincial China, with culinary styles and layout inspired by the Five Elements. World of Color Restaurant brings together the tastes of new and old worlds using spices and herbs, as well as ancient and new cuisine with textures and flavors from across the seas, islands and continents. Chart Room Cafe is the place to kick back and enjoy casual dining. Guests can soak in the cafe’s peaceful and welcoming atmosphere while enjoying its selections of specialty coffee, continental breakfast, salads, freshly made sandwiches, made-to-order pastas and home-made gelato with delicious topping cream.
Here’s a video of the hotel:
