Awesome Hong Kong-Macau Weekend (Part 3)

So we went to the place which they say is the "happiest place on earth". What's Hong Kong if we wouldn't visit Disneyland? So, it was where we spent our second day. It was quite a wet day but we're still thankful that the rain didn't pour big time!

But before anything else, let's do the "outfit check"! Before leaving the condo, we assumed that it's gonna be cold in Disneyland. And again, we checked out our "not-prepared-at-all" luggage. Luckily, I was able to bring stockings to at least cover my legs while wearing shorts. Thanks again for the boots, but still, my cardigan was a FAIL! haha! Thank God my friends lent me a thicker scarf.


On our way to the train station, we passed by the Mango Outlet Store. Of course, we had to stop and buy some real thermal wear which we will use the following day. And yeah, we forgot that we'll be bringing those shopping bags all the way to Disneyland haha!:))






We took the Mickey Train from Sunny Bay Interchange to Disneyland Resort. We bought tickets, entered the gates, and took a lot of photos as we walked. Well the place was nice, but I found it a bit small, or maybe I was just expecting more. Actually, I regret that I didn't insist to go to Tokyo Disneyland and Disney Sea Resorts when I was in Japan. I could feel that it's a lot bigger. Hopefully I can visit there next year.






We're actually excited to watch the shows, most especially the parade; so we noted all the show schedules and made sure that we won't waste any time. We had a couple of rides first: Buzz Light Year Astro Blasters, Autopia, and Space Mountain, , then we watched the parade of Disney characters. It's so fun! I loved the colorful floats, the Disney characters, and the entire experience!:)






 Buzz Light Year Astro Blasters

 Autopia

Space Mountain


 Disney Princesses


 Lilo and Stitch

Toy Story

The parade proceeded to a theater where all of the characters performed. It was called "The Golden Mickey Awards". There's a screen which featured English subtitles, which we're really thankful for. haha! Anyway, it was a nice show. It was good to see a lot of Filipino performers there, some of them used to be my schoolmates. Cool!:)




 The beast changed into a handsome prince!


 tinker bell!

 After the show, we had some snacks. Then we tried to watch the High School Musical but we didn't like it so we just proceeded to the other rides.






 Mickey's Philharmagic 3D!

 tried taking a picture w/o the 3D glasses haha

 Tarzan'sTreehouse


Jungle River Cruise



And the first ride we took wherein we're all complete as a group was The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh! haha! We were wondering why it got a long line. So we were seated in a huge honey jar and which toured us inside a series of rooms showcasing the adventures of Pooh! Wahaha we've been laughing about it after the ride!:)) Then we went to the huge lighted castle, "It's A Small World'. It was a boat ride inside a castle that's full of dolls representing different countries of the world. It was a tour of the 7 continents. The song "It's A Small World" was playing on the background and as we passed through different countries, the language kept changing according to the country we're in. It was so cool! We heard the Filipino version with the lyrics, "Kaliit lang ng mundo..." haha! And it featured dolls wearing the baro't saya in front of the bahay kubo. It was so nice!:)



 haha funny ride!






Philippines




Then we went to the Stitch Show, where I was spotted by Stitch and got really embarrassed for being a part of the show! haha! And finally, we got to witness the fireworks display at the Disney castle! It's stunning!:)









It's been a tiring yet fun day in Hong Kong Disneyland. After the fireworks show, we took a couple of shots on our way out. Awesome day it was!:)






Bye HK Disneyland...'til next time!:)
