HK Day 5 – Disneyland
Hong Kong Disneyland was the most enjoyable day during my trip to Hong Kong.
We’ve been hearing some bad comments from the locals including a few taxi drivers.
“Disneyland is so small you could finish it in half a day, better go to Ocean Park.”
However, we were so glad that we insisted to go because Hong Kong Disneyland was simply awesome.
Who says Hong Kong Disneyland is small? We can’t even finish it in a single day!
We reached there around 10 AM and stayed until the very last show at 8 PM.
Hong Kong Disneyland has four main themed areas. Referring to the map below, the themed areas are Main Street U.S.A. (bottom/brown), Adventureland (left/blue), Fantasyland (top/pink) and Tomorrowland (right/orange).
Your visit to Hong Kong Disneyland is not complete if you never watch these two amazing musicals.
The first musical is “The Golden Mickeys” showing at the “Storybook Theatre” at the Fantasyland. The second musical is “The Festival of the Lion King” showing at the “Theatre in the Wild” at the Adventureland.
I’ve recorded both musicals with my Nikon D90. I had to shorten it to 15 mins due to YouTube’s limit. Enjoy the videos.
The Golden Mickeys
The Festival of the Lion King
Mickey’s WaterWorks Parade
Since it was summertime, Hong Kong Disneyland had a special parade which is the “Mickey’s WaterWorks Parade”.
All the vehicles and characters were actually spraying water everywhere. We had to hide our cameras whenever we saw any water gun pointing at us.
We were all wet but it was totally fun and it really does help to bring down the heat.
Disney in the Stars Fireworks
After dinner, we found ourself a nice spot right in front of the Sleeping Beauty Castle to view the fireworks show “Disney in the Stars”.
The fireworks started at 8 PM sharp everyday and it lasts for 10 mins.
The fireworks co-ordinated to classic Disney music was simply mind blowing and jaw dropping.
The fireworks was the last show for the day before the park closed and it somehow officially brought us to a happy ending of our magical Disneyland journey.
