Day 3: Hongkong Disneyland

I’m pretty sure that most of the kids wanted to visit Disneyland and I’m one of them. When I was young I wanted to visit Disneyland and meet Disney characters but I know that it is very impossible for me to visit Disneyland because I don’t have the money. So when I’ve learned that there is already Disneyland in Hongkong, I was happy because I know that my dream is no longer impossible.

Hongkong is not that far and with the help of airline seat sale, I can achieve this goal. I’ve really waited for this moment and thank God because he answered my prayer. It is a dream come true also for my son because he loves Mickey Mouse.

After 10 months of waiting we finally visited Hongkong Disneyland last month. We checked-in first at Disney’s Hollywood Hotel before going to the theme park.

We got free map and checked the time of shows and parade. At that moment I can’t decide where we will go first because the park is so huge and I don’t think we can’t finish it in one day.

Anyhow, we started our tour in Adventure Land, we watched the Festival of the Lion King. It is 30 minutes music and dance show. Do not miss this show because this is really nice and we all enjoyed it.

Then we crossed the rivers of adventure by riding the raft, we climbed the Tarzan’s Treehouse and rode the Jungle River Cruise. We just checked the Liki Tikis and we did not go near because we don’t want to get wet.  

Next stop is Toy Story Land. We rode in Slinky Dog Spin and my husband tried the Toy Soldier Parachute Drop and RC Racer.

We’re hungry already so we started looking for restaurant then we saw Chipmunks in Grizzly Gulch so we immediately fell in line because this would be our first photo with Disney character. While waiting for our turn, my husband bought food in Lucky Nugget Saloon (Fish and Chips).

Then we fell in line again for Mickey Mouse.

We were not able to try Big Grizzly Mountain Runaway Mine Cars because there’s minimum height requirement and my son did not pass so he just played in Geyser Gulch (water play).

Then we went to Fantasy Land and rode in Dumbo the Flying Elephant and Cinderella Carousel.

We watched 3D Mickey’s PhilharMagic and took advantage the photo op in Fantasy Garden.

Then we rode Fantasyland Train Station.

Back to rides again, we tried Mad Hatter Tea Cups, It’s a Small world and The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh. It’s a Small World is one of our favorite rides.

After Winnie the Pooh, we immediately went to Storybook Theatre to watch “The Golden Mickeys” show. Thank God, we were able to make it.

After the show, we’re really tired and hungry so we went to Tomorrow Land and eat in Comet Café. Then we patiently waited till 8PM for fireworks.

It was fun and tiring day. We were not able to finish everything so I was glad I purchased a 2 day pass ticket. God is so good because He gave us good weather and we enjoy our first day in Disneyland. Expect for Hongkong Disneyland Part 2.
