Hong Kong Disneyland

I don’t think Katrine and Gregor would have ever spoken to us again if we hadn’t taken them to Disneyland during our holiday to Hong Kong.

This is the back entrance to the park – which is why it is so quiet. My first photo taken with the self timer – worked pretty well I think.

On the ferry from Hong Kong Island to Mui Wo, Lantau

We took the ferry, from the main ferry pier on Hong Kong Island, which was a wonderful way to see a bit more of the scenery – even if it did drop us off at totally the wrong part of Lantau, we arrived at Mui Wo and then had to get a bus over the moutains (which was an incredibly beautiful trip) to Tung Chung. Here we could get the MTR one stop to Sunny bay, where we transferred onto the Disney train.

Can you tell that Katrine and Gregor are getting excited at this point!

 

 

Complete with Mickey Mouse shaped windows!

 

 

 

 

 

 

We arrived at the park just as the parade was starting, which was very loud (a bit too loud for Gregor) and lots of floats and performers.

We stayed for two nights in the Disneyland Hotel, which is a very pleasant 10 minute walk from the entrance, there is also a bus which also takes about ten minutes as it goes a long way round (don’t think many people knew that it was the same to walk as get the bus as we had the path to ourselves). Staying in the hotel worked brilliantly, on day two we spent the morning in the park, came back to the room and watched a DVD then went back to enjoy some of the rides in the dark. Then we returned to the hotel to watch the fireworks from the balcony before saying good night to Mickey.
