Experiencing Magic at Disneyland Hong Kong
It was my daughter’s birthday wish to visit Disneyland Hong Kong. We arrived on a hot sunny Wednesday afternoon at the Hong Kong International Airport and decided to take a taxi to our hotel. There was public transport everywhere but I was uncertain if the bus will pass by our hotel at Disney Resort. I certainly do not intend for the family to get lost on our first day in Hong Kong.
Disneyland is a must see in Hong Kong even for adult travellers. The park is quite huge with exciting rides and lot of activities. It took us more than 20 minutes to travel from the airport to Disneyland Resort. There are two hotels inside the resort that are decorated in the typical Disneyland theme. The kids were obviously ecstatic with happiness and anticipation at finally seeing Mickey Mouse in person.
As we walked through the streets of Disneyland, we had the opportunity to meet some of the well-loved Disney characters. Everything was so beautiful and breathtaking. We proceeded to Tomorrow Land where there were long queues to enter the halls. It seems that Buzz Lightyear Astro Blaster is a crowd favorite as well as the Space Mountain with its famous indoor roller coaster.
Our next stop was Fantasy Land where we enjoyed the 3D movie of this colorful mini world of Donald Duck and the Golden Mickeys. We also tried the famous “It’s a Small World” where we took a boat ride to see the moving statues of different Disney characters.
The food inside Disneyland restaurants is actually good and it is not as expensive as expected. The security guards at the gate informed us that we are not allowed to bring in food and drinks. All sorts of food including snacks were available and but the attention of the kids were on the stuffed toys and Disney costumes.
Overall, Disneyland is one of those good places to experience being a child all over again. However, the family has other plans because we intend to go and visit Victoria Peak tomorrow. Friends have been telling us to visit Victoria Peak so that we can view Hong Kong and its twinkling lights after dark.
