  • 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! 
  • 有大型的人造湖,草地,荷花池。人流不多,你可以在這裡散步野餐,更可以租借腳踏車(大概100元一小時)/腳踏船(大概120元一小時) 
  • Great place to be. Quiet, punctuated by the Disneyland train. Surrey cycles for hire and paddle boats too. The paddle boats can be exhausting. Best if you take your own bike.

  • 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.
