  • 這裡是位於迪士尼的附近,只有搭地鐵到迪士尼站再走或是搭巴士才能到達,交通不太方便。不過這裡景色很美麗,有一大片草地,野餐十分舒服。 
  • 今次入住迪士尼樂園酒店,服務員介紹到迪欣湖遊玩。風景非常優美怡人,像世外桃源般。坐在草地上野餐,欣賞迪欣湖湖面風光。値得再來!

  • Relaxing place, suitable for family or couple. Good facilities, washrooms are clean. You can rent bicycle or water bicycle here. Crowded during weekends, better to come earlier if u want to get a place for picnic. Long queue for car parking too.
  • A comfortable place to travel. Suggest to walk through the whole circle path around the lake. Food is limited as there is only one 7-11 there.
  • Beautiful lake with gazebos all around and lots of grassy areas for picnic. You can rent paddle boats or bicycles as well.
  • Lovely place for walks and picnics.
  • Nice place but difficult to get to.
