TRAVELGRAM: Hong Kong Disneyland

30 June 2012.

This is actually a trip that didn’t cross my mind that time. Me and my best friend, Patty had this tampuhan before this was planned. She actually insisted that I should join this trip because in the long run we will still patch things up and this adventure is one for the books. True enough, this trip is really a memorable one. Not just because it’s our first time to go out of the country but also the thought of fulfilling one of our dreams, which is to go abroad together.

The waiting game. We were on an early morning flight, that explains our sleepy look in the lounge.

We actually rode a train to get our luggage.

This is it! My childhood dream. Disneyland. I. Can’t. Believe. It.

Hong Kong Disneyland consists of seven themed areas as of this writing: Main Street, USA, Fantasyland, Adventureland, Tomorrowland, Grizzly Gulch, Mystic Point, and Toy Story Land. We experienced a bipolar weather inside. One time it’s raining hard then it’s so sunny the next time. This explains why we don’t have so much photos here.

The Space Mountain is an indoor roller-coaster. It’s very dark inside and you can only see some glow lights. You will be clueless, and the next time you’ll know the ride already dropped. I’ve heard so much about it and most of the people are saying that going to Disneyland is non-sense if you will not try the Space Mountain. And yes, for the heck of it I tried it and it was indeed an awesome experience.

Pardon my natatae look on our first drop.

One of the best events inside Disneyland is the parade. Unfortunately, we were inside the “It’s a small world” ride when that happened. As a consolation, it’s one of the best rides ever.

Here’s the complete It’s a small world experience.

The Golden Mickey was also one of the exciting parts. Most of the Disney characters that I love were in the musicale.

Walking has never been so much FUN!

 And then Patty and I became Mommy Tins subject to practice her photography skills.

For the finale, I tried hard not to shed a tear but I just can’t help it. The Disneyland fireworks display is surreal. The Music made me feel like a child again.

This place was a dream came true and I would definitely go back to Disneyland again, in another country maybe. I wish!XOXO,
