Invited : 3 Days 2 Nights Hong Kong Disneyland 2012 : Hong Kong Disney Land Theme Park Detail Coverage
## This is an extremely long and picture intensive article. Please allow up to few minutes to load them. There are videos as well and will allow you to enjoy the wonder World Of Hong Kong Disneyland in 2 Full Days In the theme park.
The theme park is located about 1KM away from the hotel and is connected to the Hong Kong MTR line directly. It is very convenient for people who are in Hong Kong and wanted to drop by the theme park for a weekend getaway after going through the hectic business meetings while in Hong Kong city. If you know you are going there for a weekend trip, I would recommend you to buy the 2 days pass. 1 day guarantied won’t be enough to cover the whole park.
To me Hong Kong is a lifestyle, economy and finance power of Asia. It has a big influence on its economy, lifestyle and culture which combines the tradition of British and ancient China. The country is administer in English style but with the reference to ancient believe in Feng Shui. This is the same for the Disneyland in Hong Kong. You see Disney is an all established American brand but in Hong Kong is built slightly different. You see as a Chinese, I do believe in Feng Shui stuff where it reflects the harmony and chi flow of the whole place.
Ready? Let’s go!
The view of the walk way towards the theme park.
The big water fountain built in right in front of the entrance of Hong Kong Disneyland Theme Park. Above is the day time view of the fountain which you see a normal fountain with bronze Mickey surfing on whale water splash.
This is the night view which I like more.
Donald pissed off face at the corner of the fountain. Below is the video of the Mickey Surfing On The Whale fountain at night. This place is great for a chill out after the theme park is close. You can slowly enjoy the music and fountain performance which in sync to each other. Checkout the video below.
This is the first sight as you walk towards the theme park before you reach the ticketing booth.
This is the view at the back of the entrance. Although we are under media pass, we still access like any other public visitors.
This is how our ticket looks like. The whole collection of Toy Story Friends faces.
After crossing the ticket barrier, immediately you will be able to see the Hong Kong Disneyland Rail Road. As usual a lot visitors start camwhoring at this area even though the weather is scorching hot. My advise to fully enjoy the trip here, a thick socks and comfortable walking shoe is recommended. You will walk a lot and stand in queues for any of the stuffs here be it ride or shows.
