Visiting Hong Kong Disneyland Park for the first time was a memorable and fun experience. It felt like I became a kid again! It’s not only suitable for children, but for the young at heart as well.
It was a Chinese holiday when we went to Disneyland Park. Big Buddha was celebrating his birthday that day, so all four themed lands were, as expected, overcrowded and queues for the rides were quite long. But we’ve got no complaints really. After all, we didn’t spend a single dime for our tickets, thanks to Josh and Rowell who gave us complimentary passes worth 350 HK$ each.
Getting to Disneyland Park is pretty easy via MTR. From Tsim Sha Tsui, we just took the Tsuen Wan line to Lai King, then transferred to the Tung Chung line and boarded at Sunny Bay. Finally, we rode the Disney Metro Train to the park. We were all excited to have finally boarded on this train. There were lots of “hidden mickeys” – in the windows, walls, and even train hangers.
Visiting Hong Kong Disneyland Park for the first time was a memorable and fun experience. It felt like I became a kid again! The themed park is definitely not only suitable for children, but for the young at heart as well. In fact, my 20-something-year old friend was eagerly thrilled to take photos with Stitch, her favorite Disney character.
For me, the highlight was the Disney on Parade which features tons of Disney characters, such as, among others, Mickey Mouse, Winnie the Pooh, Buzz Lightyear, Cinderella, etc. dancing and marching along to Disney songs. The indoor theater productions, particularly the Festival of the Lion King in the Adventureland, are also a must see, and the fireworks display at night, of course. Even my parents enjoyed watching it!
We really had a blast and will definitely visit it again next time we go to Hong Kong!
