    Re: Questions about HKD

    Yes, they have a service similar to photopass and these photographers are all over the park. There are lots of photo ops with characters in several areas and they can also take your pictures in some popular areas, like the castle, the hub, etc.. You can pick up your photos one hour later at the Camera Center on Main Street. Beware: lines there are LONG!!

    One thing to keep in mind.. HKDL is still a very small park. You probably won't need more than a day to see it all. But get to the park early and DO NOT RUSH. Take in the small details, see all of the shows... and you will have a full day.

    I stayed at the Hollywood Hotel as well. Lovely resort by the China Sea. You will love it. Very art deco in a Mickey kind of way!

    The City is nearby... and can be done at ease. The train service from HKDL (with one connection at Sunny Bay station) is quick and covenient. You will be in Hong Kong's Station and Central in 30 minutes. Once you arrive at the airport.. do take a few of the brochures they have for tours and tourist info. They can come in very handy in planning your visit!

    Have fun in Hong Kong.. as it is one of the most spectacular cities on Earth.

      Thank you for your help We understand that you that HKD can be done in a day but with the 2 days for 1 day price deal is to good to pass up. And yes we will stop and smell the flowers and enjoying taking in the small details I think alot of people dont.

      Is there any Disney discount shops like in the USA

      It is only a 4 day trip we are thinking 2 days for Disneyland and 2 days shopping and sightseeing

      For shopping we are looking for ladies shoes and silk flowers and a nice outfit for my wife for our daughters wedding later in the year

          Get off the MTR in TST, take a walk down Nathan Road. You'll be accosted by 1000 taylors. You'll get your nice outfit for a song. Do it on the first day so you have a chance to get fittings done, and any alterations that you may need.

          I've had some nice silk suits made for around 300 US$. I'm kind of small, maybe 5'5", 110 lbs soaking wet. I'm not sure if this makes a difference. Cotton and linen suits are cheaper.

          Forget the shoes, 16 years here and the only ones I've found that fit nicely are imported (mostly Timberland and Bass) If you find some, post the place here!

          Each of the shops has a special offer if you spend HK$200 or more. YOu can save receipts and add them up too. Sometimes porter's shop has 50% off merchandise, but at that time of year it probably won't happpen.
