Family business has dictated my spending six weeks in Asia right after the start of the year and I definitely intend to see the three remaining Disney parks I haven't visited and maybe a possible future Disney site or two as well.
Most of my time will be spent in HK and Shanghai, so I will see a whole lot more of China than I will Japan, but I am posting this in both the HK and Tokyo forums to get as many opinions as I can as I start planning.
My HK accomodations will be arranged, although I'll likely spend a couple of nights at HKDL to get a feel for the place. So now some general questions and PLEASE feel free to offer spirited advice.
First, what's the weather like in HK in winter (January/February). I know Tokyo can be quite cold, but what about HK? How easy is it to get to HKDL from the center of the city? Is there some holidays/busy period during my time there to avoid the new park?
What sites, areas, restaurants etc are can't miss?
Any advice on best method of getting from HK to Shanghai, keeping in mind I may have to go back and forth a few times?
As for Tokyo, I will have very limited time to 'see the sights' but want to do my best. I'm planning three full days for the Disney parks. What else is can't miss and close by? How easy is it to get around with ZERO knowledge of Japanese?
Any hotel recomendations, either near TDL and further away? Also, I hate sushi, so I don't care where the best is :-)
When I'm at TDL and TDS, what are things I can skip and what are must-sees?
Any advice appreciated ...
