  • [Pictures] Hong Kong Disneyland Photo Trip Report

    In July we were lucky enough to go to Hong Kong Disneyland for the first time. It was a wonderful trip and we really enjoyed the park. While the park is small and in some places the themeing is lacking but the cast members are exceptional and help make up for those problems.


    While we had wanted to go to Hong Kong, we had waited to plan a trip due the cost of traveling there and its small size; however, now that we have been there we are VERY glad we had the opportunity to go and look forward to returning in the future. We are really looking forward to the additions they are currently working on and hope they continue to add new attractions and improve the park as it really deserves to succeed.


    So here is the first part of my photo trip report


    Heading to Hong Kong Disneyland!









    We started our first day with a character meal at the Enchanted Grove in the Hong Kong Disneyland Hotel. It was an interesting mix of what I would consider "normal" breakfast foods and Chinese dishes. Most of the non-Chinese dishes weren't exactly what I was used to; however, I am sure even picky eaters would be able to find something that they would be able to eat. One neat "magical" touch was that some of the vegetables were cut into the shape of Mickey heads and gloves. This was seen throughout the parks with various Mickey shapes showing up often in food LOL.






































    After Breakfast it was time to head to the park!

















    Then it was time to enter the park














    Our first stop was in the Art of Animation to check out the plans for the expansion














    Then we took a ride on the Hong Kong Disneyland Railroad


























    Then we explored around Fantasyland






































    Then it was time for the excellent Flights of Fantasy Parade
































































































































    After the show we were able to meet the cast!





    We then headed to Tomorrowland


























    Then it was time for the 2nd parade





















































    Then we got to meet Tink who came to visit the resort for its 5th Anniversary celebration








    Then we went on it's a small world























    Then we met Donald and Daisy who were wearing their 5th Anniversary finest








    Then we had dinner at the Main Street Corner Cafe








    Then there was a party on the Main Street Train Station to watch the Tinker Bell Castle Illumination and the Fireworks





















































    We then left the park for the night after a wonderful first day!

        Thanks! Great pictures indeed! It's wonderful to see characters I don't usually see roaming around the park. Is that Goofy and Max?

            We were sent over there with the message that only we would defend Disney quality.. We learnt quickly that the Japanese culture speaks to a level of quality that is hard to comprehend. They were all unbelievably skilled and willing to do the right thing.

              Yeah that's Max. I used to see him out with Goofy a lot at WDW (got a few hilarious photos with them).

                  ORDDU: My sisters and I have often conjured up your web footed site inside our crystal ball and have enjoyed seeing all the character photo's you have there of our many Disney friends. It's important that somebody keep track of all the Disney characters for historical purposes as well as for pleasure. Thank goodness you're doing that!

                  ORWEN: Now, if only they'd let us Cauldron girls pose for pictures.

                  ORGOCH: Is ya nuts? Wanna' go an' break somebody's cam'ra?

                      Re: Hong Kong Disneyland Photo Trip Report

                      Thanks for this wonderful trip report. Your pictures are great and it seems HKDL is a very beautiful park. I just wish they wouldn't add TSPL. That wonderful park doesn't deserve such an awful addition.

                      I've notices on your pictures that it says: Disney's Fastpass Distribution. Disney uses that in Florida either and I think in Anaheim as well. But in Paris it the signs just say Fastpass. How is it in Japan?

                      Can't wait for more of your trip report.

                        Thank you While I don't hate TSPL... I agree... I wish they were adding something else instead but like WDS, Hong Kong Disneyland very much needs additional attractions/areas and at least it looks like they are going to improve the land for Hong Kong.

                        As far as Fastpass, in Tokyo they use "Fastpass Ticketing":

                          Thanks for the answer, Jon. It's still interesting why Disney uses different versions of the Fastpass sign.

                              Your welcome Yeah, it is always very interesting to see how each of the parks handle some things in slightly different ways... makes you wonder why they changed it.

                              After we were done exploring Adventureland we head to Fantasyland and passed the future entrance to Toy Story Land






















































































                              After Fantasyland we headed to Tomorrowland






























































                              After Tomorrowland it was time to complete our circle and return to Main Street USA

















                              Coming soon will be Part 3 which was our 3rd and final day of our trip


                              Hope you all enjoyed the pictures and as before if you want to see lots more pictures from Hong Kong Disneyland you can find them on our site here: Hong Kong Disneyland Resort at Disney Character Central
