Hong Kong Disneyland consists of 3 hotels, namely Hong Kong Disneyland Hotel, Disney’s Hollywood Hotel and the newest one, Disney Explorers Lodge, located on the seaside of the hotel. To link these hotels with the Hong Kong Disneyland Park and the non-magical outside world, you can ride on the free Hong Kong Disneyland Resort Hotel Shuttle buses between the 3 hotels and the Disneyland Resort Public Transport Interchange (PTI) which is close to the Disneyland Resort MTR Station and the Hong Kong Disneyland Park.
Of course, even if you aren’t staying at any of the hotels, you may still take the free Resort Hotel Shuttles around to visit them. If you do visit Disneyland without any plans to spend the bulk of your money on park admission or a hotel stay, this could be one of the free activities at Hong Kong Disneyland that you may consider to do to get a partially-magical experience.
I chose to visit the Hong Kong Disneyland Hotel as it’s the most grand among the three, meant to give you the feeling that you are in a lavish Victorian palace.
Each hotel has individual direct Resort Hotel Shuttle buses between them, and departs from the PTI every 10 to 15 minutes during the day. That also means they operate on 3 distinct routes namely:
- Disneyland Resort Public Transport Interchange (PTI) – Hong Kong Disneyland Hotel
- Disneyland Resort Public Transport Interchange (PTI) – Disney’s Hollywood Hotel
- Disneyland Resort Public Transport Interchange (PTI) – Disney Explorers Lodge
The buses do make you feel that you are back in Singapore though, with the bus bodies manufactured by SC Auto for the coaches and Gemilang for the MAN A22 bus in the background.

During boarding, a safety video for the Resort Hotel Shuttle is played.
Remember not to talk to the driver during the journey!
Announcements are made when the bus is approaching the hotel.
At the hotel, the drop-off point is the same as the pick-up point when you wish to return to the PTI.
From Hong Kong Disneyland Hotel, you can also walk to the Hong Kong Disneyland Park via the Park Promenade in about 15 to 20 minutes.
