Dragon Wind is a character buffet restaurant in the excellent Disney Explorers Lodge hotel at Hong Kong Disneyland. It’s open for both breakfast and lunch (it’s best to make a reservation in advance). Breakfast starts at $298 HKD ($38 USD) for adults and lunch starts at $388 HKD ($50 USD).
The restaurant is an open-concept with beautiful decorations showcasing culture from both Hong Kong and China. It fits perfectly with the overall theme of the Disney Explorers Lodge.
Our review covers only the breakfast buffet, as I haven’t had the chance to dine there for dinner.

The breakfast buffets at Hong Kong Disneyland are excellent across the board at the Disney Hotels. But, without a doubt, the Dragon Wind is my absolute favourite. There are traditional Chinese breakfast foods along with a ton of western food options too. So, if you’re worried you won’t find something to eat, I can assure you that you’ll find something.
As for western options, you’ll find bacon, eggs, toast, fruit, salad, cereal, and tons more. My favourite is the omelet station and filling my plate up with as much watermelon as possible (watermelon in Japan is incredibly expensive so I like to get my fill). Don’t worry there’s also small Mickey waffles and pancakes too!
If you’re feeling up to it, there are a few Chinese options available with authentic Cantonese cuisine. Dim sum, noodles, soup, and much more. One of my favourites is the deep-fried milk custard bun — I may have had 4-5 during my multiple visits.
Our video below shows you the entire breakfast buffet to give you an idea of what to expect. You’ll also hear me attempt to read some words that I have no idea how to pronounce. Keep in mind that the menu may change without notice.
During our last visit, Mickey and Minnie were greeting guests in their adorable Explorer Outfits. When you’re seated at your table, your party is given a card that allows you have your photos taken with Mickey and Minnie (they stand near the windows of the restaurant).
There are PhotoPass Cast Members (make sure to download the app) and they’ll also take photos with your camera too. I adore their outfits, so of course, I had to get a photo.
Tips & Recommendations
- Eat right at 7:30 to avoid crowds in the morning
- Get yourself a freshly made omelet from the omelet station
- The deep-fried milk custard bun is the main reason for your visit (it’s that good)
- Get in line for Mickey and Minnie just after they leave to take a break (this way you’re first in line)
- Mickey waffles and pancakes
The food is fantastic, the restaurant is gorgeous, and meeting Mickey and Minnie in their Explorer Outfits is a ton of fun. If you’re staying at the Disney Explorers Lodge (which is my absolute favourite Disney Hotel), then without a doubt make time to eat here at least once (or twice in my case) during your stay, it doesn’t disappoint.
