Out of 6 days that I had in Hong Kong, I decided to spent one day in the land of magic – Hong Kong Disneyland. I am not a super fan (more of ordinary fan) of any Disneyland Character, but I like themed park and or amusement park. The idea to enjoy a ride, be it in a carousel, riding a boat in a man-made “scary-unknown” jungle, riding a roller coaster is really fun. I mean, wouldn’t you want to be carried away from this earth for a while and enjoy being carefree and happy for just a moment?
My attractions to nature, landscape, and architecture will always win its place when it comes to concocting an itinerary. But, when I had a chance to experience amusement park, I’ve been on a roll as well. I went to Warner Bros Studio Tour in London on 2015, did bungee jump on 2012 in New Zealand, had a skydiving in Queensland Australia on 2014, had a Hot Balloon ride on Cappadocia on 2013, and this year I heard Disneyland calling my name.
In this post, i will share my experience and I will summarise the tips at the end of this post. So, make sure you keep reading (or just scroll down if you’re impatient and want to read the Tips already), haha...
Where is exactly Hong Kong Disneyland located in Hong Kong?
As you know, Hong Kong is comprised of several big islands. Hong Kong Disneyland and Hong Kong International Airport (HKG) is located on the same island namely Lantau island. Meanwhile, the Hong Kong “central” where the concrete jungle resides is in Hong Kong Main Island. Luckily, there are very well-establish means of transportation, MTR (Hong Kong Metro/Subway lines) between these islands.
If you stay in Hong Kong Island, which I’m certainly sure you will, or at least in Tsim Sha Shui area, you will need to hop on a metro, or a bus. But you can always go by a car and a boat even to reach Hong Kong Disneyland.
