Note: Post overloaded with photos!
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.
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).
There are 4 main theme streets in Disneyland namely Tomorrowland, Fantasyland, Adventureland and Main Street USA.
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.
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.
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!
Main Street USA at night.
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.
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?
Coming soon: Day 4 (I see stars)
