I was there in 2005. Just ard 3-4 mths after they have opened officially. Prior to that, I had been to disneyland in usa and japan. Comparing with those I have been, I find that it isn't very spectacular. There are so many people and so little attractions. The waiting time is long. The souvenir shops are very repetitive. Selling almost the same items although located at different parts of the theme park.
Frankly, I think if it's your 1st time to disneyland, U will enjoy it more. I think I won't be visiting the park for another few years to come. Gotta wait till they add more new attractions.
Was in Hong Kong during the last few days of December last year with my family and girlfriend. During our stay there, one of the places of interest that we visited was of course Disneyland.
Prior to that, I had never been to any other Disneyland around the world. So to me this was my first experience at a Disney Theme Park.
Disneyland was located on Lantau Island and we took a catered bus by the travel agency to get there instead of the MTR (Mass Transit Railway). However, later we found out that we should have taken the MTR instead as it was said that the Disney characters would actually be onboard the train to allow passengers to take pictures. Nevertheless, we did manage to take pictures with characters such as Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, Pluto, Chip and Dale,and a couple others as well in the theme park.
Coming back to the theme park, it is basically split into four areas namely Main Street USA, AdventureLand, FantasyLand and TomorrowLand. For a more in-depth description of each section, you can visit the official website for details as well as the map of the theme park.
Most of the games there were catered mostly for kids and young children. Therefore for adults going there, there are only a couple of games or activities which is more suitable. A few of them are the Space Mountain (indoor roller coaster), Autopia ( Future Car Driving), Jungle River Cruise and Tarzan Island.
Of course, there are also several shows such as Festival of the Lion King, Stitch Encounter and the best of them all The Golden Mickeys at Disney's Storybook Theater. It was really fun hearing Mickey and gang talking in Cantonese on stage.
The main attraction at the theme park was of course the Disney On Parade, whereby all the characters will take to the streets for a grand parade, quite similar to that of the Chingay Parade in Singapore. Lastly, not to be missed would be the fireworks in the evening, where the
amazing fireworks explode to the masterfully choreographed sounds of classic Disney music to round off the whole visit to DisneyLand.
Overall, the experience was a good one and as the park is really quite small as compared to the rest of the other Disneylands around the world, a one day visit pass would more than suffice. Do check out the official website for more information and on-going promotions too.
