Day 2 of the Hong Kong Vacation is Disneyland Day! Yes, I was so excited for this. Second days are always the start of the vacation. Usually, you are tired from long hours of travel on your first day – so the best day is always the second day. It is true what they say, you haven’t been to Hong Kong, if you haven’t been to HK Disneyland.
There is no exaggeration. I felt like a kid on our way to Hong Kong Disneyland. I am not a fan of cartoons but we are talking of Disneyland here. We all grew up watching Mickey and the gang.
So we rode the MTR (from Tung Chung line to Sunny Bay station) and there is a specific train which would take us to the Disneyland! I was like a kid wowwwing.. and whooaaaing.. while riding the train. There are Disney characters in gold figurines and the train windows and hand rails are all Mickeys!
We had bought our tickets at the Sky Tower for HK$350 where we got free Disney umbrellas. Actually, we get to choose if we wanted pen or umbrella – we were being practical so we decided to get the umbrella. The only available color is yellow. But I love freebies so it’s still cool!
On our way to the entrance, we spent 20 minutes at the ark facade to have our pics taken. There were so many visitors and you wouldn’t get a chance for a solo shot.
When we got inside, more pics from that and this site in different angles. We have seen Mickey and Minnie but we hate long lines so we have decided to have lunch at Mainstreet Cafe.
We got the set menu – appetizer and main course meal. This was such a bad decision because we felt that we cannot finish our plates. Yes, they do have big servings, and the service is Aplus.
Total bill is HK$344 (inclusive of the 10% service charge). We were satisfied and I cannot complain – I just hope they had allowed us to smoke in the outside dining.
We had dessert and coffee at the near-by cafe. I forgot the name! We have to try the Mickey Tiramisu (cakes ranges from HK$20 to HK$40) – not the best one – I cannot even taste the alcohol. This one is for kids. What I hate about Disneyland and Hong Kong? You can’t enjoy coffee and ciggy. There are designated smoking areas and you can’t just puff while sipping your freshly brewed.
Anyway, so we had explored the area and the rides. Here is a pic taken at the It’s a Small World Ride.. A little blurry – I was so alert in looking for the Tagalog term for Goodbye, and when I have spotted it, I have to take a pic before the boat even reached the exit.
