Day 10 is all about Tokyo DisneySea adventure! Prior to this trip, I contemplated a lot whether I should go to Tokyo Disneyland or DisneySea. I can’t go to both because of time and budget. In the end I choose DisneySea, as I’ve been to Disneyland in Hong Kong before. I know they are not the same but at least the names are similar. LOL. Also, most that I asked told me they enjoyed DisneySea more. Plus DisneySea is more for adults and Disneyland for kids.

My Mickey Mouse Handphone Charm

Mickey Mouse Handphone Charm

Cute or not? Broken Mickey body parts. Kekekeke

Bought at Hong Kong Disneyland shop in 2007.

I have this habit of purchasing handphone charms from the places I visit. Keep it. And when the current one is damage, I’ll use the next one in line. Hahaha

The weird part is I’ll keep all my damaged charms in a box. Let me show them to you next time ya.

This charm is currently adorned on my battered handphone.

Below is the free watch that I mentioned in my previous post. Got 3 of these watches because I bought 3 HP printer inks at HP sale. I have 2 whites & 1 black. Gave the white & black to sis and dad.

HP Watch

I think it’s very chic and retro like. I haven’t wear a ‘big’ watch since my G-Shock mania days.

Btw, have I showed you my Mickey Mouse watch? No? Okay will show next time.

Hong Kong Day 3: Hong Kong Disneyland

Note: Post overloaded with photos!

Read Day 1 and Day 2 HK fun here.

Going to Hong Kong Disneyland is pretty easy. Since this ‘Happy Place’ is situated in Lantau Island, we can choose between ferry and MTR. We took MTR from Yau Ma Tei to Disneyland Resort Line with 2 interchange stations in between.

Disneyland Resort Line

We’re supposed to visit Po Lin Monastery and Giant Buddha before Disneyland but we figured time constraint is one of the factor. True enough. So next time lo.

Entrance to Hong Kong Disneyland. Ticket price HK$295 (non-peak day).

HK Disneyland Entrance

There are 4 main theme streets in Disneyland namely Tomorrowland, Fantasyland, Adventureland and Main Street USA.

We didn’t try on any of the amusement rides because they’re boring and have very long queues.

For me, there are only 2 interesting activities in Hong Kong Disneyland. Snapping pictures with my favourite Disney characters and visiting the Disney stores.

To INFINTIY & BEYOND!

Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Tigger & Donald Duck. Hehe I know we’re not good posers.

Photos With Disney Characters

We had the chance to watch Disney on Parade along Main Street USA. I kinda like it. Sorry the photos below are not vibrant due to me… minimizing it.

HK Disney Parade

After the parade, everyone went into shopping mode… including us. My eyes… ohh my eyes… so beautiful… I want this! I want that! I want EVERYTHING!

Frankly speaking Hong Kong Disneyland is the most boring theme park I’ve ever been. Their main problem is the lack of amusement rides and attractions. I know from all the photos above it seems very interesting right? But not actually. Like I said earlier I only love the photo session and shopping part. For me, the best theme park is Everland theme park in Seoul, South Korea.

Our loot from HK Disneyland store. Don’t ask me how much I spent. I don’t want to be reminded how poor I’ve become.

Our Loot From HK Disneyland

There’s firework display at 7pm above Sleeping Beauty Castle but because we wanted to beat the rush hour since the theme park closes at 7pm also, we decided to give it a miss. No regret.

We came back to our lodge, dropped our stuff and head back out for dinner. I’m not going to show you what we had for dinner since you guys have been complaining I show too much food.

Here’s one very funny thing. If you ever patron any HK restaurants… the moment you sit down, you’ll be given a glass of tea. First we thought they’re our drinks. Then we found out Hong Kongers use ’em to wash their chopsticks and spoon. Ohh so embarrassing. Later we found out actually you can do either one… as drinks or to wash utensils. Am I correct?
