    Any date for the Ferry Service ?

    Ferry have been planned to service guest between HDL pier and the rest of the hong kong bay ? Any idea when this is coming ? That might be just perfect to stay at the DL Hotel and enjoy the many attractions of Hong Kong.

    Thanks for the insight if any body has some....

    Cheers !

    Alright thanks for the info...

    Too bad, that would make their hotels interesting for tourists who want to see as much hong kong as Disneyland...
    I guess that wouldn't make a huge profit for the ferry operator indeed.

    Maybe Disney should run this service themselves. They don't need to make many runs, just maybe
    1. 8:30am from town to HKDL (for those who wants to enter HKDL)
    2. 9:30am from HKDL to town (for those who wants to leave HKDL, probably hotel guests)
    3. 12:00pm from town to HKDL (for those who want to come in for 1/2 day)
    4. 1:00pm from HKDL to town (for those who wants to go out after 1/2 day)
    5. 6:00pm from town to HKDL (for those who wants to check-in to the hotels after a day in town)
    6. 8:30pm from HKDL to town (for those who wants to leave after a day at HKDL).

    Of course they have to be ferried by either: Flying Dutchman, Black Pearl or The Empress!

    What I don't understand is why HKDL can't manage to get the operators of the Discovery Bay ferry (which appears to be very frequent and run pretty much 24 hours) to have a select few of their services also service the HKDL pier?

    It wouldn't be an out of the way detour and would only add a few minutes to the select few services that would deviate there.

    Basically none of the ferry services want to run the route because they would lose money. The government can't 'persuade' anyone to put in a tender and frankly it's hard to blame them when you look at the lack of people out there.

    That ferry is the biggest white elephant in the park.

    HKDL can't run the ferries themselves simply because they don't have a licence to operate, the same way they don't run the train and bus services because they don't have the licence.

    I seriously doubt Discovery Bay ferry would be the slightest bit interested in running the service. They need to make money after all!
