Hong Kong Disneyland Trip Report, November-December 2015 - Part One
DisneyDan  Tuesday, December 29, 2015 11:32:56 AM
Hello everyone,

At the end of November Jon and I travelled to Asia for a multi-stop trip to Tokyo and Hong Kong. We started in Hong Kong, flew to Japan, then flew back to Hong Kong before coming back home. In this part of my report on our travels, I will be sharing with you our adventures at Hong Kong Disneyland on both ends of the trip, which ended up stretching from the end of November, until the first week of December. I am actually going to break up this Hong Kong Disneyland report into several smaller parts, as it will be quite long. Here, in part one, I'll talk about the resort overall, resort hotels, and Main Street USA (including characters and entertainment on Main Street).

During the first part of our stay, we actually stayed in a hotel in the city, and used the opportunity to visit various places in the city. You can read my report for that, which I published this week, on my Two Lost Boys blog, here. On the second part of our stay in Hong Kong we stayed on site at Disney's Hollywood Hotel. Between the two ends of the trip, we ended up having a total of four days at the resort and in the park.

Rather than jump around, telling you everything in the random order in which we did them, I'm going to group different themes together to keep everything organised and less confused.

A Magic Kingdom park without a regular day parade appeared to be a new low in standards at the Resort, and fans have waited a full two years for their wishes to be realised.  [ Read More... ]
Character News and Updates From Around the Web - Fantasyland Expansion press release, New Hong Kong parade debuts
DisneyDan  Tuesday, January 18, 2011 12:31:31 PM

Hi all,

Today’s big news is of course the press conference over at the Magic Kingdom regarding the Fantasyland expansion (amongst other things).

Besides a couple of new rides, and the new theming and areas all of which sound really awesome, the character news to come out of this is that the Snow White attraction will be closing in order to make way for a brand new Princess meet ‘n’ greet “attraction”, to replace the Hall of Fame, which closes in a couple of weeks’ time. Disney are compensating for the closure of the Snow White attraction by of course adding a brand new Snow White themed ride - the Mine Coaster, not to mention the new Ariel attraction! To put it simply, they are getting rid of the Hall of Fame and the Scary Adventures, but in their place getting an awesome new roller coaster and a new meet ‘n’ greet area!  [ Read More... ]
