Since I was a kid, I’ve always dreamed of going to Disneyland. When my mom, sister and I went to the US last 2006, we didn’t have the chance to go to Disneyland. Now I know the reason why. God planned for me to go to there with my daughter and hubby and the rest of the our Hong Kong trip entourage 🙂
The main reason for visiting the home of Mickey and Minnie Mouse is to celebrate Kelsea’s 4th birthday. I wanted it to be memorable for her. I told her that only big girls are ready to see Disneyland. And when we’ll go back home, she must prove to us that she’s a big girl already. That means no drinking milk in the bottle anymore. It worked! That was hitting 2 birds with one stone 🙂
We were able to buy discounted Disney tickets thru the CTS booth in HK International Airport. Prices of 1-day regular park tickets are:
General Admission Ticket (12-64yo) – HK$399
Child Ticket (3-11yo) – HK$285
Senior Ticket (65yo & above) – HK$100
Park hours were:
Mon-Tue, Thu-Sat 10:30am – 8:00pm
Sun, Wed 10:30am – 11:00pm
HOW TO GO TO HONG KONG DISNEYLAND
Since we were staying in Yau Ma Tei and there’s an MTR exit just below the apartment where we stayed, we took the MTR going to Disneyland.

MAIN STREET, USA
Main Street, USA is what we saw first when we entered the park. It is like a 20th century American town where we had the chance to meet and greet Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse. Unfortunately, the two kids were not that eager to have their photos taken. They still have the fear of mascots 🙁

While walking in Main Street, we saw the shops full of Disney items. To avoid spending early, we avoided those shops and told ourselves that we’ll go back before going home.

My parents, sister, nephew and aunt decided to stop over at a restaurant to grab a bite while Mark, Kelsea and I roamed around. We went to Adventureland and rode on a jungle boat to see the jungle. We were warned that kids might get scared on some parts of the ride.

Our next destination was the Grizzly Gulch. It was a runaway adventure in the home of cowboys. Too bad we weren’t able to try the wildest ride in the West.
Time for a break. We got hungry after this. It was chow time! 🙂
Next is the Part 2 of our Disneyland adventure
