Hello everyone!! I had the immense pleasure of returning to HKDL on April 16th 2006 for my third visit to that resort and park. The first two times, I dedicated myself to just enjoying the surroundings, without taking many photos. Just wanting to be there with the purpose of seeing the fine theming this baby park got on opening day last September 12th, 05. This time though, I returned to HKDL, mostly by request of several online friends and friends unknown who have been emailing me requesting more "pictorial tour"-style photos and wanting to know more about HKDL's look and theming. Therefore, with camera in hand, I set out to ride some rides, skip the shows I have seen already and try to capture as many details of HKDL park, as well as the big views, so those of you who have not been able to visit but are interested to see what HKDL had to offer besides rides, can enjoy this fine establishment thru some photography.
Well, after arriving there and capturing nearly 600 photos of the entire park, I was able to sort out and narrow to 405 pictures which I feel convey what HKDL is all about. Honestly, there is much more to HKDL Resort than 405 pictures, but I feel that is just about enough for one photo update.
Many have covered this park since it opened...and that was one reason why I didn't feel the need to do so again...but after so many people asking me to see more photos from HKDL, I felt it was about time to go back and document any changes since opening day or at least, how the park is holding up.
Much to my surprise... HKDL is still looking very very very clean and well maintained, with the exception of the outdoors of Space Mountain which needs some pressure washing... the rest of the park looked in great shape.
In this mega pictorial.. you will see some of the little things that make HKDL a joy.. and catch glimpses of things you may or may have not seen yet, such as the CM shuttle bus, new fence at the ticket booths, easter merchandise, Autopia track and boarding platform, new guidebook covers, samples of the castle show light and music show which plays every 15-30 mins nightly, a very generous look at the HKDL "Disney on Parade: Come Join the Magic" parade, "Disney in the Stars" fireworks, a generous look of details around Main Street in day and night time shots, some little spots that I personally enjoy, and even a very brief visit to HKDL and Hollywood Hotels.
I sure hope you find the time and stamina to look thru this album and enjoy it as much as I have enjoyed putting it together for the past 3 days. As always.. feel free to ask questions or comments.
Now, on with the show... Enjoy!
