We went to Hong Kong Disneyland on Thursday, hoping that the fact that it was a weekday and rather gray would mean less crowds. Plus, it was my birthday, and what better way to celebrate!
The excitement starts before you even arrive. As we waited for the express train to Disneyland, we joked about whether the train would be decorated. As always, Disney didn’t disappoint.
We made sure to get there early, because we know that at Disneyworld in Orlando there’s a welcome show. Unlike in Orlando, though, it’s not hard to get to HK Disney early, since it doesn’t open until 10:30. It turns out there’s no special opening show, but we still had a great time looking at the water statue.
By now it was 12 (so much fun squeezed into the first hour and a half!), and we decided to try out the Royal Banquet Hall. Although it was really just a food court, through the magic of Disney, eating there still felt like an event. Plus, they had both steamed rice and French fries, so we could feed both kids at one location, which is a rare occurrence.
