Asia Trip Log – Day 5 (4/8) – #HongKongDisneyland & Big Buddha

A trip log from Thursday April 9, 2015 @ Hong Kong Disneyland & Big Buddha Visit

Started off the morning playing catch up on some blog posts and was on my way to the Disneyland Line Station by 9am. We went to see the Big Buddha which meant a short subway ride (literally the next stop after transferring off the Disneyland Line) and then a 25 minute cable car ride through the fog. Hiked up the 268 steps to see the Buddha up close then back down. Walked back to the cable car and returned back through the fog. Ended up grabbing lunch at McDonalds in the shopping center before hopping on the MTR back to Disneyland. Walked to the park and roamed around Main Street visiting the Animation exhibit in the Opera House and then taking some exterior pictures. Walked out to it’s a Small World and went for a cruise to get some video. Then found a spot for the Flights of Fantasy Parade nearby. After the parade walked through Tomorrowland and the parade crowd on Main Street on my way to the shuttle bus. Took it to Disney’s Hollywood Hotel and went for a tour of the hotel and grounds then walked back to the Disneyland Hotel to drop some things off before returning to the park for the evening. Walked back to Disneyland and strolled along Main Street USA to the hub. Walked around and then through the Castle to Fantasyland. Took some pictures of the area and visited the Fantasia Gardens. Then walked back to Main Street to rejoin my group who was arriving for the evening. Walked out by it’s a Small World for some after dark pictures then found a spot for Paint the Night nearby. After the parade quickly walked through Tomorrowland and down Main Street and caught a second viewing of Paint the Night before walking back to the Disneyland Hotel. Watched the fireworks from our room and then called it a night.
