Asia Trip Log – Day 1 & 2 – Traveling to Hong Kong & #HongKong Disneyland Hotel
A trip log from Sunday April 5 and Monday April 6 as I traveled to the Hong Kong Disneyland Resort –
My Easter Sunday started off with a 4:00am alarm to get ready to leave for LAX at 5:00am. Arrived at LAX no problem, check-in was a breeze and even TSA screening had a minimal wait so we were at the gate early and we had gate 50B (the first one!). Luckily due to international and some of my groups frequent flyer status we were able to use the Delta Sky Lounge for a light breakfast and place to wait. We left LAX on time and arrived in Seattle early. Decided to grab lunch in the food court in the Central Terminal then went to seek out Delta Sky Lounge. Had to hike to the far side of another terminal for our flight, arrived a few minutes to boarding and headed onboard. Then we sat nearly 45 minutes waiting for a group to arrive on a connecting flight from Detroit. Finally pushed back and were on our way. Touched down in Hong Kong just after 8:40pm local time on Monday evening (yes we left Sunday morning and arrived Monday evening.. total transit time was about 27 hours from my front door to my room in Hong Kong plus a 15 hour time difference). We had to disembark and take a bus to the main terminal. Went through customs, got our bags, and were out waiting for a cab by 9:40pm. We choose unwisely and it took over half an hour for a cab to show up (we choose the blue line). Took it to the Disneyland Hotel and checked in. This process took us a while since we purchased Magic Access cards plus the normal routine. We were in our room just after 11pm. Did a quick photo pass through the room then went and explored the hotel for till a little after midnight. Lights started to be turned off at midnight and I was starting to get tired so returned to the room and went to bed.
