Say hello to Mi Lao Shu, as Mickey Mouse is known around these parts.

There’s only one reason to come here; or maybe two if you’re attending a convention (!!); or maybe three if you’re getting married (!!!). My daughter loved it; what pre-teen wouldn’t? And – don’t let on to anyone – I rather liked it too. The swisher of the two on-site Disney properties, it certainly is a very well-rounded package.

Location

At Penny’s Bay on Lantau Island, at the end of the railway line, adjacent to – of course – the eponymous theme park. So once you’re here, the only way out – apart from swimming – is back the way you came. The hotel looks out over the harbour, and naturally there’s a grandstand view of the nightly fireworks.

 

Bedrooms

Brand awareness is all. Those mice are woven into the carpet, and the Seven Dwarfs gambol round the bathroom mirror. No prizes for guessing the movie line-up on TV.

 

Public areas

It’s a rare moment there’s not a bunch of folks posing for a photo, or a sizeable group checking in or out. Boutique hideaway this ain’t, but that’s not why you’re here. Minnie rather than Goofy oversaw the interior design, with a certain amount of help from Cinderella’s Fairy Godmother.

 

Eating and drinking

Even the Chinese restaurant’s dim sum are shaped like Disney characters, forsooth. But they taste good. Likewise the buffet at Enchanted Garden. Popping outside for a bite to eat somewhere local is not an option.

 

Leisure facilities

QED. The garden maze is simpler than you might think. The Victorian Spa’s menu includes kids’ nail painting.

 

Service

“Have-a-nice-day” for sure: but even the humblest staff really do seem to patently relish their role in this corner of the Magic Kingdom.

 

Who stays there

Seven-year-olds of all ages.

 

Price advice

A package including park admission makes sense.
