HK Disneyland: The Happiest Place…


….in South East Asia? Well, that would be a relative statement. But for the time being, I consider HK Disneyland as such.

Perhaps there is an unwritten rule that mandates every Hong Kong tourist or visitor to pay Mickey Mouse and his friends a visit over at the Hong Kong Disneyland Resort. And just like any other enthusiastic tourist, we were so thrilled to see the legendary Mickey Mouse in all his awesomeness.

Just about 10:30 am, we rode the red MTR from Tsim Sha Tsui Station towards Lai King, transferred to the orange MTR at Sunny Bay, then transferred to the pink line which leads to the Hong Kong Disneyland Resort.

This is the MTR train going to HK Disneyland Resort. It was like time machine transporting you to an ultimate dreamland— DISNEYLAND! It was definitely hard to miss the train going to Disneyland Resort, the train was characterized with everything Mickey Mouse all over!

Upon getting to Disneyland, there was just an overflow of tourists waiting to see Mickey! But nevertheless, the experience was still magical! We ♥ Disney!

We chanced upon the Asian version of High School Musical being staged. It was quite awkward watching chinky-eyed versions of Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens. But nevertheless, they were able to come up with a very entertaining show!

It was entertaining to stroll around Disneyland. But it was very hot and humid at the time of our visit that we had to buy an umbrella to somehow lessen the heat that we were feeling. Disneyland would probably be best enjoyed by children 10 years old and younger because the park caters more rides for this specific age group. Adult rides seemed to be more concentrated in the Tomorrowland portion of the theme park.

Eldar from Enchanted Kingdom moved to Disneyland??? I'm kidding.

We especially loved, Mickey’s Philhar Magic, which was a 4D ride with all our favorite childhood Disney movies! The 4D experience surprised us and gave us a first taste with 4D. I literally tasted the cinnamon!

We loved most of the “big kid” rides in Tomorrow Land too! We loved SPACE MOUNTAIN—it gave us the unexpected exhilaration of our lives! We didn’t know that we were in for a treat! It was really awesome!


We also loved Buzz Lightyear’s ASTRO BLASTER also.For this ride, you have to help out Buzz Lightyear shoot lasers through the Zorbs. By doing so, you will exterminate the Zorbs at the same time earning yourself points for accuracy in target shooting.

By 4 pm, we happened to get ourselves wet by Mickey’s Wet Parade! It was exciting! Getting wet in Disneyland was kind of unexpected!

I thought of my 4-year old self, being obsessed with the Disney Princesses. Just like my 4-year old self, I got mesmerized by the Disney Princesses making their rounds around the park. They were really beautiful. I wish I had taken my picture with them. They were walking around, in the flesh!

We were in the Happiest Place on Earth from 11:00 am to 7:00 pm! Talk about sinulit ang Disneyland? I LOVED EVERY MOMENT OF IT! But we were not able to stay long for the fireworks display because we had to head to Tung Chung for the outlet shopping. I can’t wait to visit Tokyo Disneyland, Disneyland in the US, and all the other Disneylands in the world!

Our best purchase for the day: Minnie Mouse umbrella with ears! Sorry, mababaw talaga kaligayahan ko! I get too much amazed with kid stuff! 🙂
