Disneyland Hongkong on Monday, yes! I feel like I went back to my childhood where all the characters are sitting on top of my bookshelf and my mom would take them out one by one while she tells me stories to put me to sleep. Hongkong Disneyland is located in Lantau Island, Hongkong and is 10 minutes away from the airport. You’d have to take the train to get there but if you are from Central or Kowloon, getting there takes 20minutes.
As you can see – more subways!
Getting on the train from Tsim Sha Tsui Hongkong to Lantau Island
Look at the train specially made for Disney. Mickey Mouse-shaped windows!

I had goosebumps when we passed by here
So nice! 🙂
some guy took our photos here (just like practically they always have an official photographer). He made put out our palms and pretend to wish for something big. nothing happened, of course, but he gave us tickets to pay for our photos.
Me to ballon guy: Will you let me pay for all of these if I accidentally let them all go?
balloon guy: I will not let that happen ma’am.
(so he held on tight to the strings)
meeting the princesses at FantasyLand! Your hands must go like this!
I could do this all day 🙂
Me to Cinderella: How come your dress is thick and not the same as the cartoon?
Cinderella: Must I wear the chiffon and tulle? But it is SO COLD in this mountain!
Okay, let’s give her that. Meanwhile, look at the details of Belle’s Dress!
Lunch was this beef steak
And this fish and chips set from Jay
Black Sesame seed Ice cream FTW!
Meeting Buzz at the TomorrowLand. They told I couldn’t touch him so I let him touch me! DOH.
Eating again! Hahaha.
Because it was raining, the parade that usually takes place every 4pm was on the Rainy Day Express.
Heading inside Adventureland and going inside It’s a Small World. Nothing much to do here. You just get on a small boat and take these photos
Their version of the Philippines
And of course, the 3D Show
Shopping! Look how cute the Minnie Mouse dolls are
Then, the Golden Mickey Awards! The host pronounced it as “Mayh-kee!”
They said the hot tarzan guy was gay! Gasp!

Fooling around at Main Street, USA. I love how we were so carefree here. It was drizzling but Warren and I didn’t care. We danced and twirled and laughed our asses off. People were looking at us and were laughing, too. I guess that is how it is like when you are in Disney – people wouldn’t care if you were acting like 4 year olds because it is after all a place for kids.
The fireworks display took forever. That must have cost a lot! Not even SM’s fireworks can top that.
Lovely, lovely fireworks. Sigh. I recorded 10 minutes of fireworks display on my phone because my 1000D can’t record videos. It is so breathtaking. The soundtrack they played was a mix of all Disney movies that you grew up with (Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella, etc) plus the entire show lasted for about 30 minutes. So beautiful!
Bye Disney! The entire Hongkong Disneyland visit was fun but I guess I was expecting too much and was not really that impressed. When you are already past 6 years old, you wouldn’t really jump into excitement at the sight of Mickey anymore or those really pretty castles. The shopping was fun for the most part. I got those Disney keychains, Disney magnets, a pretty Disney umbrella for my sister Vanessa who can’t live without umbrellas, some Disney pens, and Disney toys. A Ngon Pin trip was also possible but we didn’t really that much time. SAYANG! Shopping na naman hahaha. Hongkong Disneyland is not cheap ha but if given a choice, I’d like to go to Ocean Park more – more rides, more attractions and adult-sightseeing-friendly. Till next! Catch our pre-Hongkong trip to Manila here and our Avenue of the Stars stop.
