So of course I couldn't go to Hong Kong without going to Disneyland could I? Not when it's right on the doorstep.

Paddy and I ventured out to Asia after I finished my degree, heading to Hong Kong, the Philippines, and Dubai. Luckily, our trip happened to be only a few weeks before Halloween, and so everything at Hong Kong Disneyland was all decked out Halloween-y. Being me, this only made the trip more appealing.

How to get there
You can get the MTR (the metro) to Sunny Bay, and from there, there is a Disneyland-only line taking you right to the park. What's even more amazing about this is that THE TRAIN IS DISNEY THEMED.

By that, I mean the windows are in the shape of Mickey's head, the handles are in the shape of Mickey's head, and they have Disney figures all the way down the train. I may have let out a little squeal of joy. I can't remember if WDW has this, and I don't know if California does, but I'm pretty sure Paris doesn't?!

At the park
My squeals only got bigger and louder when we reached the park as everything had either leaves or a pumpkin on it, and this girl loves an autumnal theme.

Getting in took no time at all, and you just walk through security, around the entrance, and you're in the park. Piece of cake.

The park has 8 sections: Main Street USA, Adventureland, Grizzly Gulch, Mystic Point, Toy Story Land, Fantasyland, Tomorrowland, and The Pavillion, which is basically all Marvel stuff, and is very small.

The castle itself is smaller and wider than the typical Disney castle, which was a bit weird, but you've still got the same effect. You can't walk up inside it as you can in Paris, but it still feels magical!

I got my (what I think are) Little Mermaid-themed ears in Main Street USA. They were the only pair that weren't the typical red and black ones, or a pink variation of the same, so I went for them!

I was disappointed to not see Pirates of the Caribbean in Adventureland, Peter Pan's Flight in Fantasyland or Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin in Tomorrowland, but it is a much smaller park. 

Having said that, there are some decent rides, and the classics are there.

We went on/visited:
- Jungle River Cruise (Adventureland)
- Big Grizzly Mountain Runaway Mine Cars (Grizzly Gulch) - this was the best ride by far!
- RC Racer (Toy Story Land)
- Sleeping Beauty's Castle (Fantasyland)
- Halloween Time Festival Gardens (Fantasyland)
- Snow White Grotto (Fantasyland)
- Orbitron (Tomorrowland)

We didn't have the whole day there so missed the fireworks :( unfortunately we'd already made plans back in Hong Kong for the evening which couldn't be changed!

Food
Yeah, I took advantage of all the Disney food because I could barely find any of it in Paris! We had a Mickey-shaped ice cream, a Mickey waffle, a Pooh Bear doughnut, and what I can only presume is the HK equivalent of a Dole Whip. All quite pricey for what they were, but when in Disney!


I'd say it's not the best of the Disney parks, but if you want to cross another off your list, it's worth going to. I reckon you only need half a day at most if you want to see the fireworks as well, so you can easily fit it into your trip to Hong Kong. We both really enjoyed our day!
