    Well there is no doubt Prince Alwaleed bin Talal is a huge Disney park fan and has twice already shown his love by keeping Disneyland Paris from going under.

      "Rich guy visits country and he might go to the Disney park in that country when he isn't doing other things".

      Wow, what a scoop!

      Still, as Malin said, props to a true Disney supporter.

        Maybe the Hong Kong Gvt. has a theme park they'd like to unload, like the French did. Maybe his strategy is to scoop up the faltering new Disney parks and bail them out and eventually take over the world.

            He cancelled his visit at the last second. Apparently HKDL reserved a room on the four star Hollywood Hotel for him. I like the Hollywood hotel, it's a perfectly adequate hotel, but this is a Saudi prince who could BUY the hotel 10 times over.

            At least give him a room in the five star HKDL hotel!

            Cheers,

              Actually, both hotels do not look 5 stars in my opinion. I think the Hong Kong Disneyland Hotel is 4 stars, while the Hollywood Hotel is 3 stars. In fact, the Grand Floridian and Disneyland Hotel in Paris are both 4 star hotels as well.

                  There was a different one for each Disney resort, but I remember seeing AAA rating the Grand Floridian and Grand Californian 4 Diamonds. The Disneyland Hotel in Paris, as well as the Hotel New York, both got 4 star ratings. I don't remember seeing a star rating for the Disney hotels in Tokyo or Hong Kong, but I can sort of base my judgement on the criteria set forth by famous rating systems.

                  Since the Hong Kong Disneyland Hotel is like the Grand Floridian, I assumed that it was 4 stars as well (I heard it's a bit better than the Disneyland Hotel in Paris but not as good as the Grand Floridian). The Hollywood Hotel seems quite small in scale and judging from the pictures and room rates, appears to be about 3 stars. Even though it's based off the design of the Disney Ambassador Hotel in Tokyo, it doesn't look as grand in my opinion.

                  By the way, the two Disney hotels in the Tokyo Disney Resort are rated (in my opinion) 4 stars (Ambassador Hotel) and 5 stars (Hotel MiraCosta) respectively.
