Once Upon A Cantonese Winter: Hong Kong Disneyland

Feb 20, 2011 —Hong Kong Disneyland just started its year-long event a month before our visit in celebration of their 5th year since it opened last September 2005.

I bought our tickets at the guesthouse the day before so we didn't have to line up at the ticket booth. Make sure to grab a map and show schedule so you can maximize your time at Disneyland. 

We saw these cute kids being photographed by their parents at the fountain.

This is where you can claim your photos shot by random Disney photographers.

We explored Tomorrowland.

We lined up at the Space Mountain since we still have time before the start of the parade.

It took a while before we had our turn at the Space Mountain so as soon as we finished, we went back to the Main Street for the parade.

I've seen two different parades during my first 2 visits - the Waterworks Parade in June 2008 and the 
Disney on Parade in August 2009. I was excited that I would be watching a new one which is the Flights of Fantasy Parade.

We made our way to Adventureland and watched the Festival of the Lion King show.

We also lined up for the Jungle River cruise.

We got hungry so we bought some turkey leg from the food cart.

The show is still the same as the first time I've watched it.But it's a must-see!

We rode the Space Mountain again before we heading to the Main Street for the fireworks display.
