Asia Trip Log – Day 3 – Hong Kong City Touring & 1st visit to #HongKongDisneyland
A trip log from Tuesday April 7, 2015 –
Woke up around 6:30am and was on my way by 7:30 after checking some emails and taking some pictures. Took the shuttle bus to the Disneyland stop and boarded the Disneyland Resort MTR line to head toward the city around 8:30am. We transferred to the Tung Chang Line to Hong Kong Central then walked to the Peak Tram terminal, arriving around 9:25am and took it up to Victoria Peak. At the Peak walked around and went to the Terrace 428 and what fluctuated between partial view of Hong Kong and complete fog. Spent about an hour at the peak then headed for the Star Ferry and took it across the harbor. It was just after noon by this time so went in search of lunch and found an Outback Steakhouse. After lunch it was back on the MTR (subway) as we headed for the Tai Sin Temple arriving around 2:30pm and walked to the Chi Lin Nunnery and Nan Lian Garden. After exploring both headed back to the MTR around 4:30pm and took it back to the Disneyland Resort. Hopped on a shuttle bus back to our hotel form the transportation area and grabbed some rain gear and was on my way to the park. Walked to the park arriving just before 6:00pm. Strolled down a familiar but different Main Street USA and walked through Sleeping Beauty Castle and into Fantayland. Passed through Toy Story Land and Mystic Point. Mystic Manor went down as we approached.. so continued on through Grizzly Gulch and into Adventureland. The Jungle River Cruise had a minimal wait so made that my first attraction at Hong Kong Disneyland. Once back onshore headed for Main Street with the game plan to find a spot for Paint the Night. As we walked down Main Street Disney announced the parade had been cancelled this evening. So grabbed a snack on Main Street then saw a 10 min wait posted for Mystic Manor so hiked back out there and went for back to back walk on rides. Then returned to Main Street. Some found a spot for fireworks in 45 minutes. I opted to walk through Tomorrowland, out to Small World then back down the parade route to find them and then a spot for the fireworks. They were at 9pm, which was also park closing. After the show walked back to the Disneyland Hotel on a completely empty walkway. Headed back to the room to back up pictures and do some writing before calling it a night around 11:30pm.
