Hey kids! On the total spur of the moment I flew to Hong Kong last Thanksgiving for the very first time and, naturally, had to go to HKDL. Herein is my lengthy, photo-filled, tardy trip report--hope you [finally] enjoy!
One of the subway lines goes directly to the resort. Convenient!
When you first get to Hong Kong, you really need one of these. So easy to pay for just about anything you want (subway, bus fare, 7-11 stuff...)--add more money to it as you go.
carriagesubway car has arrived! Hehehe, I look equal parts excited and terrified.
A cool, unique fountain greets you upon your arrival.
As does this remarkably familiar-looking photo-op.
Tiny little asian elf (but I repeat myself) meets big scary furry Haunt monster (but I repeat myself).
The train had these blinds along the back side that, frankly, made me feel a little claustrophobic. I think I like the very open-air feel of Anaheim's DL RR better.
Why, yes, Sleeping Beauty's castle is...near the mountains? Hmmm...
And then it was on to our first ride, Winnie the Pooh. I liked how the attraction was all about using the books as our way in to Pooh's world (sorry for the blurriness--the ride vehicle was bumpy).
After Pooh, we headed over to The Golden Mickeys, a well-done stage show that presents live-action musical scenes from classic Disney flicks within an awards show framework (also, it's in Chinese with English subtitles). Ni hao, Mickey!
30 minutes (or so) later, it was time to have that ever-popular ear-worm implanted into our brains...
That's right! "it's a small world," which is right next to...
...Space Mountain? Hmmm...
The loading area is inside the show building, which I'm sure is very nice when it rains. The actual ride was almost exactly the same as the "iasw" that I'm used to, although I did like their take on America.
And the Hong Kong skyline in there was a nice touch.
Time for a bite of lunch, princess?
Don't mind if I do! This is the inside of the Royal Banquet Hall. Pretty fancy-shmancy, eh?
And this is the ceiling. Nice detailed fabric!
Yes, that is a plastic glove that came with my hamburger. Cleanliness is next to hamburger-liness!
I think that's enough for part one! I'll be putting part two up in a little bit. Thanks for encouraging my behavior!
