MO Panda Club featuring Pocket Panda

Young travellers can tailor their adventure and explore the Big Apple with our MO Panda Club children’s programme featuring Pocket Panda, a whimsical New York City-themed paper cutout character inspired by MiniMO the Panda. Through the MO Panda Club, younger fans ages four to 16 can embark on a sightseeing and photography quest alongside Pocket Panda and enjoy a selection of welcome amenities, immersive on-property experiences as well as access to some of the city’s top attractions.

Discover the Big Apple with Pocket Panda

Created to inspire a sense of exploration and capture moments around the city, each child will receive a Pocket Panda upon check-in with a list of must-visit attractions to take their photo with him. Share your photos at Mandarin Oriental, New York and around the city with the hashtag #MOPandaClub and your photo may be featured on our social media pages.
