We love this Magical Place!
Two years in a row - we have gone to Hong Kong Disney for a night the week before Christmas. We could do it in a day (one hour door to door via public transit)... but it's much more fun to stay a night at the Disney hotel and do a two-day package. What luck to live in a city where Disney is. Staycation at its best.
Addie survived two consecutive days without a nap - epic for her (and v much recouped the following days!). Ains was the executive planner, more or less. A few things to know about HK Disney if you go with your fam:
- the food is generally terrible.
- the princesses are awesome.
- there are hardly any lines before 11:00a.m. Go early. It's worth it.
- crowds multiply after 3:00 p.m.
- the afternoon parade is a must.
- buffet at Hollywood Hotel is fantastic.
- you can store your luggage at Disney entrance for $100 hkd per bag.
Princesses galore! And oh, how they doted on our own...
|"mini me"?? (Her greatest wish is to grow up and turn into Elsa.)|
Hong Kong represents in Small World...
Favorites: Dumbo, Slinky Dog, Winnie The Pooh...
|yep, we are the loud Americans...|
|Daddy's favorite: River ride|
This time (first ever) we discovered another advantage of getting to Disney early - and letting your preschooler wear her coveted princess dress... Addie was given special VIP status. An exclusive entry pass for pink-seats front-row for the parade. And then a special moment IN the parade. I think she liked it.
|special attention from her new BFF :) hahahaha! They had a little conversation here in the parade - it was priceless!|
|she's checking her ID card to see whether each of the princesses in the picture are accounted for. seriously.|
|spot our blondie in the parade? Not shy, this one.|
|mystic mansion - similar to the haunted house in LA - but also v different. |
First time. Ainsley (8) loved it!
|Tarzan's Treehouse - the "baby in the tree" had Addie entranced here for a very, very long time!|
|like I said, the food is bad. So might as well do a street-dog.|
|can't keep this girl from climbing stuff.|
... and that's a wrap. On the way home in the Disney-Train. Tired and happy.
