“Laughter is timeless, imagination has no age, and dreams are forever,” so said Walt Disney when he opened the first Disneyland in 1955. Indeed, a visit to any of his six theme parks/ resorts around the world is bound to bring a smile to anyone, young or old. The Hong Kong Disneyland opened in Lantau Island in 2005 and has steadily added more crowd-pleasing attractions since. While it has its own resort hotels on its premises, there are also viable Airbnb lodging options nearby. Here are some top choices for Airbnb vacation rentals near Hong Kong Disneyland:
