Vince and I love going to Hong Kong and we came back last February 25, 2011 to explore the magical world of Disneyland. We had a splendid vacation last November spending 5 days and 4 nights on the island we love. We brought work with us so pretty much we spent most of our time working and did not have enough time to roam around the city! I scheduled our trip on a very busy month, my bad. But, itâ€™s one of the advantages of being a full-time blogger, a social media manager and a digital entrepreneur. Pretty much, Vince and I can bring our work anywhere!
Check out my previous posts about our November trip to Hong Kong here.
On our recent vacation to Hong Kong, we only stayed for 3 days and so we decided to spend most of our time on the happiest place on Earth â€“ Disneyland! We stayed at Hong Kong Disneyland hotel too and boy-oh-boy, I tell you we had a splendid time! It was a relaxing and fun vacation where we didnâ€™t rush through our itinerary. We even had time to swim, go to the spa and just totally bum out.
Anyway, check out this cool video I made featuring my favorite Hong Kong Disneyland attractions!
Buzz Lightyear Astro Blasters
Help Buzz Lightyear save the universe from evil Emperor Zurg on this interactive adventure by shooting any Zs you see! You will be scored in this game and you will find out what level you are. Vince and I went to this attraction and played the game for 5 or 6 times 😛 Vince got Level 5 and I got only ’til Level 4 🙁
Take a thrilling high-speed journey to the far reaches of the universe an
d back on this interstellar roller coaster. Minimum height for this adventure is 102cm. They just stated minimum height, but what about maximum height? We had a friend who’s 6’7″ and he was worried he might bump something during the ride. This is something you shouldn’t miss as you go around, up and down in total darkness and some shining *stars* wee! And don’t forget to smile because they take a photo of you XD.
I didn’t expect this attraction to be fun! I was lining up to check it out but I had no clue what it is about. Another attraction you shouldn’t miss because this amazed me. You get to interact with a 2D character Stitch on screen and it still amazes me how they do this.
This is fun for kids who want to try to drive around without fear of getting into an accident or getting a driving license. Adults can help them step on the accelerator and the kids will enjoy maneuvering the car 🙂
It’s not 2D, it’s not 3D, it’s 4D!!! It’s fun watching this all the time. check out the Guide Map brochure of Disneyland that you can get from the information center or City Hall to check out schedule for this.
It’s a Small World
Take a journey on “the happiest cruise that ever sailed” as children of the world sing and dance to the song “It’s a small world.” It’s a pleasant boat ride around different places on earth and even in space and fantasy land! Kids would absolutely love the colors and all the toys and dolls around. For adults, it’s nice to take a ride on this relaxing boat ride. Check it out and look for the Philippines!
spotted, Jack Prinya (a celebrity in Thailand! woot!) with one of his triplets 🙂
The Golden Mickeys
It’s a magical celebration of Disney’s films, and characters. This happens in Disney’s Storybook Theater. I want to perform as one of the characters in this theater musical 😛
The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh
Technically it’s for kids… but I am a big kid at heart I highly enjoyed the ride joining Pooh and friends for a storybook journey through the Hundred Acre Wood.
Meet and take photos with Mickey Mouse, and your favorite Disney Friends! Lines can go long at times so it’s advice you guys to do this early in the morning 😛
Just right outside the gates of Fantasy Garden, A man wearing colorful clothes was doing cool tricks that amazed the crowd!
Snow White Grotto
I made a wish on the well that I can’t share 🙂 You can also take a nice angle of the Disney Castle from this area 🙂
Jungle River Cruise
Journey with your intrepid skipper along the mysterious Rivers of Adventure. You’d also get to see a nice view of Tarzan’s Treehouse.
Climb to high adventure in the treetop home of Tarzan. Conduct experiments and play musical instruments in an interactive playhouse at the base of the tree. It’s nice to take photos here too! 🙂
Festival of the Lion King
They say you shouldn’t miss this show and I agree! It’s an amazing production and you have to watch this! You can witness a colorful pageant of music and dance inspired by celebrating Disney’s animated classic “The Lion King”. You can watch this in Theater in the Wild. Â I took a few photos only because it is best to just sit down and enjoy the show 🙂
Main Street, U.S.A.
Main street is usually where the shops are and that’s what people think this side of Disney has to offer. But let me tell you, two of my top favorite attractions are here! Did you know that you can learn how to draw Disney Characters here?
Hong Kong Disneyland Railroad
But first, take the Hong Kong Disneyland Railroad. This will take you around the entirety of Hong Kong Disneyland. It’s a relaxing ride and you will get to pin-point areas you want to go to. We noticed some areas under construction! Soon they will have Toy Story land and two other attractions!
If you get a bit tired of walking around, ride the chu-chu train and relax!
I really like my Minnie Mouse cap 🙂
This is where I learned how to draw Daisy! I think they feature different characters from time to time. The class is in Mandarin though, but don’t worry, just watch the screen and follow what the lao shi (teacher) does.
Art of Animation
Man, I just saw the most amazing thing in animation here. Drop by and check out how they explain animation and how simple and basic the concept is, but with this they created tons of great animated movies! This building is a celebration of Disney and Disney-Pixar animation featuring the spinning Toy Story Zeotrope.
That’s it 🙂
These are my favorite Hong Kong Disneyland attractions! Â Have you been to Hong Kong Disneyland yet?
If so, what are your own favorite attractions?
Up next is my post about the Flight of Fantasy Parade and how to capture fireworks in Hong Kong Disneyland!
