Well... I stopped by HKDL for a few hours in the late afternoon hours of April 16th. Not much happening at the park. I had just missed the Easter related event and activities by one day... but was able to see at least enjoy some moments of solitude in the park.. yes, solitude since the park was practically DEAD. See how many people enjoying the parade at Town Square... you won't need more that 10 fingers for that.
I walked on some rides with no wait. Visited Tarzan's Treehoouse again, to see if it is true there some construction happening behind Adventureland, but found NONE. Instead, new trees have been planted back there.. and this reminds me of the time when the Mediterranean hotel was about to be built at WDW, then after clearing land, the project was cancelled. Seems to me that whatever was going to happen back there, isn't anymore.. Those poor poor Pirates... left homeless again... but since the buzz for the new POTC3 movie is lukewarm... I am not surprised. At least a lot of Pirates' merchandise can be found in tha park (see photos), but then again, you don't have to go all the way to HKDL to buy this stuff, unless you want it to say "HKDL" on it, and don't mind settling for WDW or DL on that stuff instead.
You also want "Where Dreams Come True" merchandise with the HKDL name on it? Head to the Emporium, or check it out on this pictorial. They also still have some easter stuff leftover, but I was annoyed that they had NO easter pins left anywhere! Mind you, Xmas and Chinese new year pins are still sitting on the shelf... but where are the Easter pins??? They can not possibly be sold out so quickly. Disappointment there. No easter pins at the Airport's HKDL shop either..since I attempted one last chance to find these.... to no avail.
I also re-visited Adventureland... which is my favorite land in this park. I love the lush foliage and theming here.. JC is a lot of fun and the Tarzan's Treehouse is the best such walkthru attraction built so far. Love it for how lavishly designed it is and for the hands on extras and other little touches that make it quite lovely and unique.
I also rode Autopia again at dusk.. Great Autopia ride... the trees along this ride are simply fabulous and whimsical. I also like how every section of Autopia at night features a different lighting color.. and those underpass tunnels are so disco fun!! The cars are cute and make "brrrrmmmm" noise as you step on the pedal... How much fun can you have at Autopia? Lots! This is the 2nd best such ride of any DL park, after DL's version...so slow down, and take in the decor in the day, then re-ride at night for a most colorful experience.
Finally.. I have taken some indoor photos from many shops around the park...(those that I find particularly excellent in theme and decor), and managed to find one hidden Mickey you may or may not know about.
Also... this may be your first look at IASW's clock tower under construction...
Capped the day with another viewing of "Disney in the Stars" fireworks, from the top of Main Street Station...
So without further ado... here are the photos.. Enjoy! TDLFAN will be going back to HKDL for a special appearance and meet and greet photo and autograph session. So those of you in the area... this is your chance to meet with TDLFAN.
