5 Days Trip In Hong Kong and Macau - Day 2

Day 2 of Hong Kong was all about Disneyland. Disneyland is located in Lantau Island which is near to the airport. To get there, Simply take the MTR and transfer at sunny bay station to the Disney resort line. There is a special Disney themed train to take you straight to Disneyland.

Before heading to Disneyland, we went for breakfast at the famous Australian Diary company. As Disneyland only opens at 10:30am, we had quite a lot of time in the morning.

As expected, Australian Diary company had a queue outside. But, do not be deceived by the queue and think that the waiting time will be very long. We went in after about 5 minutes wait only even though there were about 15 people in front of us. This place is also famous for the lousy service which I already prepared myself for it. When we went it, the place was cramp and then someone came to order. They kept rushing us and asking us to hurry up to say our orders. Luckily my mum knows some Cantonese so she could help us to talk to the waiter there.

Food wise, we ordered their famous scrambled egg with bread and also their macaroni plus their tea. Another thing we tried was the steam milk with egg white. It was good but after eating too much it can get quite disgusting because of the strong taste. Recommended are the scrambled eggs and just order 1 bowl of the steam milk to share. It will be better this way.

Disneyland was the main place for today. After buying some breads from a bakery shop, we headed to Disneyland and reached just before 1030am.

The icon of Disneyland, the sleeping beauty castle just like in the fairy tale

There are 7 themed lands in Hong Kong Disneyland:
  1. Main street USA
  2. Adventureland
  3. Grizzly Gulch
  4. Mystic Point
  5. Toy Story Land
  6. Fantasyland
  7. Tomorrowland
An up and coming attraction, Iron man, is still under construction. Everyone becomes a child in Disneyland. I was very impressed with how well run the place is and how beautifully decorated it is. The rides are pretty mild there which is definitely suitable for children. There are some thrill rides which adults can take too. 

I grew up watching Disney shows so it was like going back to childhood. I even played Toy story PC games last time.

Look how beautiful Toy Story land is

Oh yes, I forgot to mention inside Disneyland there are some theatre shows too. I only manage to catch the Lion king one which was quite nice and a good break from all the walking. There are also Micky mouse and star wars shows.

Then we went to took some ride called its a small world. I believe all of us heard the its a small world song when we were young. Its known as the happiest ride in Disneyland.

There is also this buzz lightyear ride we took. Its an interactive ride where we have to shoot on some targets. My girlfriend got so much points which I don't know how she did it.

There was a Christmas evening program as it was near Christmas already. After Mickey and team did some waving and dancing, the whole place snowed. Yes it literally snowed although its man made.

After the Christmas light up, we went for dinner. This must be one of the most costliest dinner. It cost about $130 for 5 of us with just 4 dishes. Nevertheless, its quite good food with big portions. The place is called Plaza Inn which is just right at the end of Main Street USA. Try it if you're there.

After dinner, its the much awaited "Disney Paint the Night" Nighttime Spectacular. This parade is definitely a must watch. It is so beautiful and one of the best parades I've every watched.

To end off Disneyland, the "Disney In The Stars" Fireworks is not to be missed. Really beautiful with the Disney Music and fireworks over the sleeping beauty castle.

I think we took most of the rides in Disneyland throughout the day but I didn't took photos of all the rides so did not mention in my post. Disneyland closed at 8:30pm and we headed back to the hotel to prepare for the next day which will be spent in Macau. Stay tuned!
