Disney’s art of movie-making and storytelling has come alive at the newly renovated Disney’s Hollywood Hotel at Hong Kong Disneyland Resort. This star-studded hotel is now ready to welcome those looking to enjoy the spirit of fantasy, whimsy and movie-making magic, complete with two all-new dining options and a stylish lounge and bar. Plus a fresh look in the lobby and merchandise shop. Not only are beloved stories and characters of Disney’s world-class studios celebrated here, but touches of Disney legacies and masterpieces can also be found throughout. Where Hollywood meets Hong Kong, we’re exploring four reasons to stay at Hong Kong Disneyland Resort’s Disney’s Hollywood Hotel.
1. Art Deco with A Contemporary Twist in the Lobby
A lobby inspired by Art Deco with a sophisticated and contemporary twist, behind the front desk you’ll spot a few fan-favorite characters. Representing three of The Walt Disney Company’s key studios, Walt Disney Animation Studios, Pixar Animation Studios and Marvel Studios, each portrait is framed in a brass film strip and represents the magic and diversity of Disney stories. There’s even a newly curated list of background music, with upbeat jazz covers of songs from popular Disney movies, adding a sophisticated touch to the contemporary ambiance.
2. New Restaurant, Ink & Plate, Pays Homage to Women of Disney Animation
A quirky and fun, American style dining experience, the restaurant’s name pays tribute to the Ink & Paint Department at Walt Disney Animation Studios, where a team of talented and dedicated artists have contributed to the inking and coloring of Disney Animation movies and cel artwork since the 1930s.
The themes of both ink and paint can be found throughout the dining room, including its chairs with neutral, paper-like colors representing ink on the back and vibrant colors splashed across the front for paint. Ink blobs and animation cel artwork have inspired the tableware and placemats with whimsical designs and a beautiful mural celebrating the creative process of hand-drawn animation covers the dining room wall.
3. Celebrating Cinematic Excellence in The Archivist, an All-New Lounge and Bar
At The Archivist, this stylish lounge and bar is reminiscent of an old Hollywood film archive filled with film reels, catalogs and even artifacts from the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The name of this lounge in Chinese (留映廳) carries a special meaning with its characters representing the words “keeping,” “staying,” “seizing the moment by taking a photo,” “movie” and “reflections.” Not only do these words celebrate the movie nature of the space, but they also honor cherishing time together with dear friends and loved ones.
4. Contemporary and Disney Crossover at Celebrity Gifts
The contemporary art deco style carries from the lobby into the newly redesigned Celebrity Gifts shop from a starburst carpet to globe pendant lamps above and geometric wallpaper.
For a classic touch of Disney, Donald Duck can be found tangled in a film reel. It’s the perfect spot to grab all the goodies before heading home!
A hotel unlike any other, Disney’s Hollywood Hotel is unique to Hong Kong Disneyland Resort. Now, who’s ready to celebrate Disney’s art of movie-making and storytelling with us?
