My Hong Kong photo diary is getting pretty massive so to prevent one humungo post I decided to split it up. First up, the happiest place on earth! I’ve been receiving loads of questions on my Instagram about this one. Worlds smallest Disney so I believe? We’ve been to the Anaheim Disney Park before with the big kids and WOAH. We were there 2 days and it wasn’t nearly long enough, that said, the line ups (one hour per ride! atleast!) were so draining and although we LOVED it, and will most definitely go back (and attempt a quieter time of year if that’s even possible) I found it pretty draining.
Hong Kong Disney on the other hand was smaller, and more focused towards the littles, which was perfect for us as we were travelling only with Ruby this time around. That said, our older kids (10 and 13) would have definitely been able to entertain themselves MORE than happily. And the beauty of its size meant it was easier to get around. We were cursed (blessed?) with monsoonal rainfall while we were there. The upside being, literally NO LINE UPS. for anything. Still enough people there to create atmosphere but the ability to walk straight onto rides with a nearly 3-year-old was pretty much well and truly worth walking around for 2 hours in squelching shoes and a see through wet clothing LOL. The upside, it was warm the whole time, and eventually, the sun came out! So we got the best of both worlds. My conclusion, definitely worth the visit. It’s easy to get to via the MTR (jump on at Hong Kong Central) and you can do the whole park in a day, but could definitely enjoy it over a couple. Andy travels to HK for work often, so on return trips I wouldn’t hesitate to take the kids back on my own for a quick half day outing either.
Ruby’s favourite rides were basically anything residing in Fantasy Land. Weeks later she’s still gushing over the Winnie the Pooh, Sleeping Beauty Castle, Dumbo The Flying Elephant, the teacups, It’s a small world (awesome a/c on this one – if your husbands getting restless pop him on this a few times to calm down, a welcome break from the humidity) , and Mickey’s Philar Magic show was so much fun. Here are a few pics from our day. If you look closely you can see how drenched we were!! Thankfully the sun came out in the end and our memories are only good. We will definitely be back with the whole fam in the near future.
