  • [Pictures] A Sparkling Christmas-26/12/09 [Photo Heavy]

    This isn't gonna be a huge trip report like my Halloween one. I've learned my lesson from Photobucket's ruthlessness. So I've shortened this TR to only include scenes from the park that have been decorated for Xmas (basically most of Main St. and a few random ones):

    New posters:








    Whale Fountain


    Entrance




    Train Station


    Holographic projector

        It's A Small World Christmas. I didn't take any pictures of the ride because I didn't realize at the time I could have shared the pics here at MC.

          Night Shots of the park




























          And that's that! for now until I post another TR in January. Hopefully I'll be in the park for New Year. Please excuse the quality of photos, I used my Iphone.

            Thanks HKDLFan for your consistent contribution to this thread.

            I love how understated and elegant all the Christmas additions and decorations in the park and nothing too over the top like in other Disneyland parks like DLP. I really like the big snowflake in the hub. Was this taken before or after Christmas Day? Do you live in Discovery Bay btw?

            Happy New Year xx

                  Your welcome. I went to HKDL after Christmas day (26th) and surprisingly it wasn't crowded compared to standard crowds in other Disney theme parks. I've been living in Tung Chung for almost 8 years so It's barely a 7-10 min ride from my house to HKDL.

                  Also, looking from Tarzan Treehouse, expansion hasn't progressed as fast as it did for IASW (heck, they had the layout for the bridge built in 3 weeks)

                  Happy New Year!

                    Wow their decorations are lovely. I especially like those cutout photo op things.

                      Thanks for the pictures! Excellent considering you were using your phone.

                      If only my blackberry could last a whole day at the parks (it drains fast even when i'm NOT using it. I think something's wrong with it honestly)

                        I'm sure my iphone has a shorter battery life than the Blackberry. NEVER be fooled by Apple when they say the 3GS model has longer-life battery...

                          Well, mine lasts 1 day MAX, even when i'm not using it.

                          ON TOPIC: I really like how each park has it's own personality. For example, HKDL has the more clean-cut snow lighting on the castle while DLR has the more natural, ice storm look.

                            It's great to have micechatters outside the US providing trip reports like this...thanks much! Will definitely plan on visiting some day.

                                Great shots. I was there on November 20th, the first official day of the event. Unfortunately I did not get to take any photos on that trip... somebody else took them for me anyway...

                                  Hi DisneyParksFan,

                                  I don't live in Discovery Bay but I know a friend who stays there as I actually live in London, UK. I love the golf buggies all zooming around and the view to HK Disneyland is great.
