    Yes! Visit http://www.hkdlsource.com

    Hee hee hee...any chance to plug our site.

    (Seriously, though - DO)

    A day in the park should be sufficient to see everything, but if you are staying off-site, give yourself time in the morning to travel out for the gate opening and the rope-drop. A FULL DAY in the park is needed to enjoy all the ambiance of the place methinks, although you probably wouldn't want too much more than that.

    • Take the time to see some of the little things, and don't dismiss the shows because they are a large part of the attraction of the park.
    • Don't expect it to be a 'big' as the other parks. Enjoy it for what it is, as it is still an excellent theme park regardless of size
    • MUSTS: Space Mountain; Jungle Cruise; Autopia; Festival of the Lion King
    • Leave time for the 3:00 PM Parade during the day. Maybe plan your day around it.
    • Stay for the fireworks. With the mountains behind the castle, it is a beautiful and awe-inspiring thing.
    • FASTPASS is your friend. Say what you want about it elsewhere, but given the small number of attractions at HKDL, it really helps plan your day.
    • While it is never TOO crowded at HKDL, November should be picking up as they head towards Christmas.
    • There are a few cute surprises on the Railroad


    I should really get our heads together to make a one-day travel guide.

    Hope that helps (some).

    A few random thoughts:

    - If you don't speak Cantonese and are interested in seeing Stitch Encounter in English (or Mandarin), be mindful of the limited showtimes for the non-Cantonese performances. If you wait until late in the day, you might find that there are no more English-language performances left.

    - Autopia has three tracks. If you're interested in what I felt was a slightly longer -- and more scenic -- track that loops out over the UFO Zone in Tomorrowland, pick the one to the far right as you're approaching the boarding area in the queue.

    - If you want to take the rafts to Tarzan's Treehouse, avoid queuing up right after a performance of the Lion King show -- based on my limited experience, a large chunk of the audience seems to gravitate immediately to the rafts, creating a surge in the wait time. (Or, alternatively, you could try to sit near the exit of the show, and be among the first ones out of the theatre and in line for the rafts.)

    I discovered this site a while ago:

    I don't agree with all of it, but there are some good tips in there.

    Re: Any tips for a good trip

    ORDDU: While there have been several good tips already given, thus far, the truly BEST advice is this: Make sure you have a gorgeous hunk to go with. After all, it doesn't really matter where you go as long as you have a good man to hold hands with; to drool over while eating at the various restaurants; to share a hotel room with...
