Hi,

My trip to HK on 11 to 15 Dec. Have not been there for more than 10 yrs and this time will be 2 adults n 2 kids (age 5 & 11). We will be staying at Metropark Kowloon with for 3 nights.

We are travelling via Cathay Pac which offers the Airport Express or Shuttle free. I had choose the airport express a mth ago when book due to many road closures in Mongkok area caused by the protest. Anyhow, should I take a taxi from Kowloon Station to the hotel? We have a medium sized suitcase and 3 backpacks.

Have not plan anything after hotel checkin. Most likely will have to check out the places suggested here and shopping and explore ard Mongkok and TST..

CX tickets offer came with half day tour which my family members had not experienced b4. should we go go for this? It will cover Stanley, Repulse Bay and Peak. Tot of give my kids a chance on the tram to the Peak which will do on 3rd day after Ocean Park anyway.

After 3 nights stay at Metropark we will stay at Disneyland for our last night in HK. Since it came with 2 days pass tickets for 2 adults. Tot of checking out ard noon and go to Disney so kids get to play until Night for the fireworks and again the next day until we need to go to the airport. My questions are:

1) Should we checkin CX luggage n boarding pass in the morning when we travel out of Disney for breakfast? We are early riser so should be out ard 8am. This is oso for longer stay for the kids inside Disney if we have done the checkin and get the boarding pass.

2) if yes, at Kowloon Station or Hong Kong station? We have the return by Aiport Express ticket covered by CX too.

3) if no, travel to HKIA by what time if our flight is at 4pm? Heard that the custom or security clearance at the airport is super long wait. Thus, need to reach airportas early as possible.

4) if no. 2 has been done, what time do you think ineed to leave Disney to the airport? Not sure how long is the travelling time and best way to the airport especially we already have tge airport express retur tickets.

The above questions have been making me worried and difficult to do Pre planning until I read this forum.

Thanks in advance on whoever who reply to this.

Airport Express offers free shuttle bus to some hotels and Metropark Hotel Kowloon is on the list too. Take the route K5 from Kowloon MTR station: http://www.mtr.com.hk/en/customer/services/complom_free_bus.html 

 

I would join the half day tour if I were you since it's included in the package, why not? Indeed you've paid for it when you bought the package, right? 

 

Disneyland station is not on the Airport Express line so in order to use up the remaining return ticket of AEL, it's better to do the in-town check in service no matter it's early on your departure day or else. But it seems to be better to do it later or you will be going back and forth. You need to be at the Kowloon station 90 minutes ahead of departure time for in-town check in service, so if your flight departs at 4pm, you gotta leave Disneyland with your baggage at around 1:30-1:45pm (around 30 minutes travelling time between Disneyland and Kowloon Station).
