*REMARK – This is a very very long post filled with lots of pictures. Ur fingers might get tired or numb from scrolling!
Disneyland is a word that often rings in our mind since we were a child, hoping to go and get a chance to enjoy ourselves right at the castle itself to see all our beloved character and by taking a picture would make it a very memorable one. One that had made it more possible to many kids around South East Asia as Hong Kong Disneyland which had open few years ago that make a big impact around the region. as the nearest we visit is Japan (still one of my dream). Now they had build one in Hong Kong that is located at Nantau Island which is easily access with public transportation. One of the way to get there is by their very convenient MTR train that 1/3 of the population board on it daily.
If you are living around the city hotels you can easily access to many of the MTR line available as just to switch to head there. So how we travel to Disneyland is either by MTR or by Taxi as there are 3 brands of it too. The common taxi is the red colour as what we usually see in TVB series which is the most expensive, another one is Lantau Taxi that take passenger to Disneyland or the cheapest brand of all. One of the catch is to take a cab in Hong Kong is pretty much expensive therefore I would advise on taking their MTR. (more details click here)
This is one of a cool train as the connecting train from Sunny Bay Station to Disneyland, it is a special train that design to be more nice as the train is design in with Mickey Character. Mickey ears handle. .

It was super hot and I bet you will find some where shady, guess it was suppose to be autumm weather that need to be at 17-22 for the day but on that day we were there it was like about 24.. melting. . luckily did not sweat.

After the show we head to Adventureland which is on the left from the exit and you will head to another dimension more like Indiana Jones dimension
Rafts and Tarzan Tree House
One of the show that you must watch in Adventureland is Festival of the LION KING, that they have a schedule on every 2 hours if I am not mistaken and the show is about 30 minutes long. The time for the day is fixed and available in the map which is available at the main entrance.
Its a round stage and we calculate that can approximately host 1500 crowd at 1 show and its a round staging so feel free to choose to sit where you like, best view from our point of view is come in from the main entrance on turn LEFT that area as we find that most performer look towards that side.
Indeed its a great musical show that involve many performer and if you do have time in Adventure land I would Recommend to WAtch this LION KING show as it certainly suits all adults and kids
Next we head to Jungle River Cruise which will suit kids, cruising on the river to check out many animal and hunter.
Lets go, as you get to choose either Cantonese or English Speaker before you go on board.

Its a great day to be at Hong Kong Disneyland finally and I had a lot of fun myself by taking lots of pictures and it certainly make me a very happy person when I left after enjoy all the great performers, songs and dance. . I find that their entrance fees is very reasonable . .
You can buy at 1 day Pass or 2 Day pass . . As I find that if you plan to explore every corner of Disneyland then would advise you to get 2 days pass and if you want to get the experience of it just spend one full day there and just do not miss out my recommended shows n
