Hong Kong Disneyland Part 1
On our second day in Hong Kong, we allotted the entire day for Disneyland adventure so we can enjoy all the rides and make the most of what we paid for. It is my childhood dream to visit Disneyland, and the moment I stepped out of the Disneyland train, I felt that I have just made my dream come true.
As what Walt Disney said:
“Here is the world of imagination, hopes, and dreams. In this timeless land of enchantment, the age of chivalry, magic and make-believe are reborn – and fairy tales come true. Fantasyland is dedicated to the young-in-heart, to those who that when you wish upon a star, your dreams come true.”
Come with me and I’ll show you how magical this experience is.
This is a happy signature pose actually.
Main Street, U.S.A.
We arrived at Disneyland around 8 AM. Main Street opened at 9 AM and the rest by 10 AM. We surely had enough time taking snaps around Main Street.
Mickey Mouse landscaped façade upon entering Disneyland. The building above is the Hong Kong Disneyland Railroad – Main Street Station. It will take you for a grand tour aboard the excursion-style train with a stop over at Fantasyland.
Disneyland City Hall looking grand.
Shops around Main Street.
How I wish I will have a house like this in the future. So posh!
A bit of fashion shots here and there, trying to blend in since every corner is an ideal background. You just need to find a spot that doesn’t have lots of people.
This shot was taken around 6 PM while waiting for grand parade and fireworks display.
By the time the entire theme park opened, most people went to Fantasyland, which is in the middle and Tomorrowland, which is on the right. We defy the flow by going to the left which is the Adventureland since not everyone’s thrilled going to the jungle.
First adventure we tried is the Rafts to Tarzan’s Treehouse. We crossed the river to get to Tarzan Island and Tarzan’s Treehouse.
The Treehouse path will take you on a tour of how Tarzan’s life started.
Now with Jane. This tour is a bit boring specially if you are not a fan of Tarzan.
This is the entrance going to the Festival of Lion King, a colourful play inspired by The Lion King, but sadly, it was closed on our visit.
Next it is Jungle River Cruise. A journey with the intrepid skipper along the mysterious River of Adventure. This is really something I enjoyed a lot. I did not took photos because I don’t want to miss the fun.
This is the Liki Tiki’s. It beat the jungle rhythms pounded out by these “leaky” tiki poles.
It’s disappointing that all rides at Grizzly Gultch are closed. There is nothing we can do but take pictures.
This is my favorite theme of all! If my favorite in Universal Studios in Singapore is the Far Far Away land, this is the equivalent of it except that this is not as big as Far Far Away land.
This is the Mystic Manor. Inside you will get aboard Lord Henry Mystic’s Magneto-Electric Carriage to view his amazing collection of art and antiques from around the world
The Explorer’s Club Restaurant in Mystic Point is also themed like the Mystic Manor. I love!
There is also Garden of Wonders, I did not take a lof photos there because I find it a bit boring, but this one is really cool!
That’s the end of my Disneyland Part 1 blog. Stay tuned for the Part 2 because I will show you around Toy Story Land, Fantasyland and Tomorrowland.
