Spent Christmas day in Disneyland because that’s the main motive of this whole trip~ Le pig brother has got complimentary tickets for every of us (the perks of working in Disney) and Sis could finally bring Isaac for his first Disneyland trip! 😀
Since I was the one who planned most of the itinerary, I was in-charge of bringing them to all the good-food places that I had been to during my previous exploration~ Brought them to Kam Wah for breakfast first because their polo bun is one of the stuff I miss about Hong Kong!!!
Whenever people ask me how’s Disneyland, I don’t quite know how to describe. I am not a fan of the place, because it’s usually very crowded and the rides are all the kiddy kind. But then every corner of the place is so pretty! So I usually ended up saying it’s a nice place for photo-taking and to feel like you’re in a fairytale…haha!
The pretty shops and castlesssss! But since it’s not my first time in Hong Kong Disneyland, I wasn’t as excited and did not take as many photos like the previous time…haha! Like I said, the main motive was to bring Isaac there (:
Went to take the Jungle River Cruise at Adventureland because Isaac loves boat rides, but he ended up looking more scared than enjoying because there were fake animals roaring here and there…LOL. Off to catch the Mickey and the Wondrous Book show!
I was looking forward to the show because one of my deepest impressions of Disneyland was the awesome theatrical show we caught! I remember it was very impressive, with mini fireworks and all and we enjoyed it very much! Thought it was the same show but sadly, it wasn’t 😦
Went 1 hour in advance to queue for the show but despite of that, there was already a long queue there!!! Super kua zhang one~ But this wasn’t the scariest queue we encountered throughout the trip; the queues just gets scarier and scarier!
Finally went into the theatre but we did not really get a good seat~ We were pretty far behind, hence it was quite difficult to capture the characters. But then again, I couldn’t recognise many of the characters that appeared because they all belong to the newer movies! I miss the old show with all the old characters that I grew up with D:
Live performance of Let It Go~ Not a fan of the song though, cause I believe more in holding on than letting go…HAHA.
Oh another reason I think this show wasn’t as good is because there were more 3D stuff involved, whereas the show that I caught 5 years ago involved more REAL characters~
Managed to catch the Flights of Fantasy Parade which I personally think is more impressive than the show we just watched! Love the parade because we, or rather, I got to see the characters up close because I was sitting in the first row! Hehe!
There was actually a lot of people camping around, waiting for the parade to start, but I was lucky enough to be standing next to the open pavement, so when the pavement was closed right before the parade started, I managed to squeeze to the front! Then the two girls in the first row got tired of squatting, so they gave up their positions to me and I managed to catch very clear view of the parade 😀
Love the parade because it was pretty cool! And that was the only time we got to see the REAL characters without queuing~
The bees doing their stunts 😀
Enjoyed the parade at least! Hehe!
Took a boat ride again through the Small World because Isaac loves the ride and the “It’s a small world after all” song~ Sis had taken the ride previously and said it’s very beautiful inside the Small World, so we decided to take the ride as well, since we did not queue for any rides so far except the first boat ride.
The Small World was of course filled with miniature characters and stuff, and some were cute, but some just look plain eerie! Le pig brother commented after the ride that the place looks kinda scary, with the music humming in the background like it’s trying to hypnotise you…LOL!
Sis went on to the other rides while we went to queue to take photos with Mickey instead~ Seriously, the queues were a major turn-off because I really have no patience waiting for such thing, let alone QUEUING for it. Which is why I didn’t bother queuing for any of the rides because I reckon each is gonna take like an hour at least.
We queued like 1 HOUR just to take photo with Mickey, so even when Pooh was just at the pavilion beside, I did not wanna queue for it because that will mean another hour -.- And the Pooh wasn’t very cute anyway.
And soon, the night has fallen and we ended the trip with some shopping at the souvenir shops~ I was mad exhausted by then and having a headache because I still did not manage to make up for the lack of sleep on the first night!
I actually couldn’t wait to end the night to go back and sleep~ Haha! That’s why I love travelling alone or in the smallest possible group – it’s free and easy and you get to decide when you wanna go back and when you wanna wake up! 😛
Another round of precious wefies! I kept using the word ‘precious‘ is because I can’t remember when was the last time I took a picture with both my siblings in it! The last I could remember was a picture of us in Haw Par Villa when I was probably 5???
My pig brother hates taking photos so much that he refused to take any with me throughout our Europe trip and even on my birthday! -_- So thanks to Lyn, he decided to give face and obliged to a ‘Goodbye Disneyland wefie‘! Haha!
Supposed to have the famous roast goose for dinner together but Isaac started throwing tantrums and behaving like a China boy on the way back~ Seems to happen whenever he did not take his afternoon nap…Zzzzz.
I was too tired for any food but I did try the roast goose since it’s famous~ It was nice but not to the extent of WOWWWW! The taste is a bit similar to duck meat but perhaps with more fats? And the skin is crispier also. Not bad, quite nice, just not wow.
Or maybe I was just too tired x.x
Attempted to find the cheese noodle that an AP recommended me since it’s nearby and the 2 hungry ghosts weren’t full yet, but it was closed in the end! Ended the night walking back from Yau Matei again!
