INCENTIVES and conferences have never been so fun. Many reasons for this can be found at Hong Kong Disneyland Resort where the leading Asia theme park not only reaches out to fans of Mickey, Minnie and a host of other characters, but to group organisers too.
There’s not only fun, but also a sense of wonder to be had when organising events of any scale at Hong Kong Disneyland Resort, whether conferences, teambuilding or incentive programmes. This extends to the fabulous group dining offers available.
An ideal way of experiencing the resort’s three hotels, conference centre, attractions and group dining is through a multi-day chartered itinerary.
Hong Kong Disneyland is located on Lantau Island and just 30 minutes from downtown. The airport and AsiaWorld-Expo are just 15 minutes from the resort with sightseeing spots such as Ngong Ping 360 Cable Car and the traditional fishing village of Tai O nearby.
It’s not just the sheer size of the hotel and event offerings at Hong Kong Disneyland Resort, but the incredible team-bonding and other special moments that await your groups.
Superb venues for your groups
When Disney Explorers Lodge (above) took up the space between Hong Kong Disneyland Hotel and Disney’s Hollywood Hotel in 2017, it opened a new era of opportunity for planners of large events and incentives.
It also gave the resort a total of 1,750 guest rooms, all within strolling distance of one another. So the opportunities for large MICE groups have never been better, with the resort offering the largest hotel capacity on one site in Hong Kong.
Hong Kong Disneyland Hotel features a 1,500 sqm conference centre, while indoor and outdoor event-ready venues are suitable for events ranging from teambuilding and meetings to cocktail receptions and company dinners. Read more about catering options

Disney Explorers Lodge opened in 2017, joining Hong Kong Disneyland Hotel and Disney’s Hollywood Hotel, giving a total of 1,750 guest rooms. This means the hotels offered are large enough to cater to most groups, and keep them together instead of dispersing delegates around downtown hotels.

The Disney Explorers Lodge also has a VIP dining room that connects to a garden that can be themed for private banquets and cocktails.
