Should you go to Hong Kong and Tokyo Disney?

Posted on
During the postings of my Hong Kong and Tokyo Disney blogs, I received several emails from people asking me if it’s worth the trip to travel this vast distance to visit these parks. Ultimately, this would depend on your budget and how strong your desire is to experience the foreign Disney parks, but I will … Continue reading "Should you go to Hong Kong and Tokyo Disney?"

Hong Kong Disneyland Resort – Overall Opinion

Posted on
Now, onto my overall opinion of the Hong Kong Disney Resort. The two hotels are wonderful and the service is outstanding. The ONLY complaint I had with the resort is that you cannot charge purchases made at Disneyland to your room. This policy needs to be changed. The surrounding grounds and roadways are beautiful – … Continue reading "Hong Kong Disneyland Resort – Overall Opinion"

Hollywood Hotel at Hong Kong Disneyland Resort

Posted on
Since I’m a Disneyphile, I wanted to experience as much as possible while visiting the Hong Kong Resort. So, even though I was staying at the Disneyland Hotel, I made a special trip over to Disney’s Hollywood Hotel to take a look around. I was very pleased with what I saw.

Hong Kong Tomorrowland & Disney on Parade

Posted on
The last land I will be talking about at Hong Kong Disneyland is Tomorrowland. Like Fantasyland, it feels small compared to other parks. The first attraction I’ll be discussing it Orbitron. This is your typical, hub and spoke space ride. What sets this attraction apart from its cousins in other Disney parks is that you … Continue reading "Hong Kong Tomorrowland & Disney on Parade"

Hong Kong The Hub and Fantasyland

Posted on
Before entering Fantasyland, let’s start in the Hub. One of the first things you might notice is that the Partners statue (Walt & Mickey) is not present here like it is in Florida, California, and Tokyo. In Paris it’s located in the Walt Disney Studios instead of Disneyland. I don’t know if Disney has plans … Continue reading "Hong Kong The Hub and Fantasyland"

Hong Kong Disneyland – Adventureland Part 2

Posted on
The next two attractions in Adventureland are “Rafts to Tarzan’s Treehouse“ and “Tarzan’s Treehouse.” Disney counts these as two distinct attractions, but I have a problem with this. Since all you can do once you’ve ridden the rafts is visit the treehouse (and you must ride the rafts in order to experience the treehouse), I … Continue reading "Hong Kong Disneyland – Adventureland Part 2"

Hong Kong Disneyland — Adventureland Part 1

Posted on
Warning, there will be spoilers in this article. Adventureland takes up the entire west side of Hong Kong Disneyland. There is no Frontierland here and to my eye, no place to put one. In their desperation to inflate the number of attractions in the park, Disney claims that there are five in Adventureland, but to … Continue reading "Hong Kong Disneyland — Adventureland Part 1"

Warning, I may talk about certain attractions in some detail so I’m issuing a blanket “spoiler alert” right from the beginning.
