This is the continuation of our Disneyland adventure. Check out my previous post here about the first attractions we saw in the park.
After strolling around Grizzly Gulch area, we went to the spacious area just in front of Sleeping Beauty’s castle to have our pics taken.

Tomorrowland is the future. In this area, you’ll see the Space Mountain, Stitch Encounter, Orbitron, UFO Zone, Autopia and Buzz Lightyear Astro Blasters.
To complete Kelsea’s day, she wanted to have her picture taken with Buzz since Toy Story is one of her favorite movies.

We’re so hungry so we headed to the Starliner Diner. It is an American restaurant serving burgers, fried chicken (kids’ all-time fave), salads and sundaes.
A complete meal here costs HK$70 which includes 2-pc chicken, rice and drinks.
My mom bought a Mickey Mouse-shaped pancake from one of the stalls outside. Too bad I wasn’t able to take a picture of it.
After our sumptuous lunch, we looked for a spot near Fantasyland to watch the Flights of Fantasy Parade at 3:30pm. Here are the pictures of Disney characters which gave big smiles to children and kids-at-heart (like me!) and excitement. This is a dream come true for moi!

After the parade, we walked to the Storybook Theater in Fantasyland to watch the 30-minute show, The Golden Mickeys. It is a musical celebration of Disney films and characters. On that day, this show can be watched at 12:45pm, 1:45pm, 4:00pm, 5:00pm or 6:15pm.
Tip: Arrive at least 30 minutes prior to show time. Also, check for the show times in your preferred language (Cantonese / Putonghua / English) at the attraction entrance. We didn’t check so the main language during the 4:00pm show we watched was in Cantonese. There’s a sub-title in English though 🙂
Picture taking or video recording with flash is prohibited inside the theater. So I took photos without flash 🙂
Next stop was at “It’s A Small World“. Here, we rode on a small boat as children of the world sing and dance to the tune of “It’s A Small World (After All)” in all languages.
After the ride, more photo ops of the grandmas together with their grandchildren.

It was already late in the afternoon. My parents, sister and Charles were already tired so they opt to find a place to sit and rest (and eat again!) while waiting for the fireworks display. But Mark, Kelsea, Tita and I were not. So we made the most out of our time by going to Adventureland to watch the “Festival of the Lion King“. It was a 30-minute show in the Theater in the Wild. Good thing we were able to catch the 6:00pm show. We were walking so fast because doors close 10 minutes prior to the show time.
|Did you notice that my dad’s camera was not set properly? Lol! It was a day in advance.|
Entering the venue felt like going to watch a noon-time show. It was set-up like an arena. There was no stage but the the show will be performed in the middle.
I was too engrossed with the show that I forgot to take more pictures. Kelsea enjoyed it 🙂 It was her first time to know about Simba. The performers had great voices and performed very well.
After the show, we spent time taking more pics. One shot we shouldn’t miss was a family picture in front of the castle.
Kelsea’s visit to Disneyland wouldn’t be complete without riding the carousel. So here she was – all smiles!
We still had time to spare before the fireworks so we decided to go back to Fantasyland to watch Mickey’s PhilharMagic, a magical 3-D adventure.

Aww. Missing Disneyland. Nice photos Erlaine. By the way, you guys look like HKG locals in your photos 🙂

Talaga? Hehe I think my nephew does because he’s 1/4 Chinese 🙂
We missed the flights of fantasy parade! Sayang, parang yun pa naman ang highlight ng park. 🙁

Hi Peachy! Is that so? Di na bale. There’s always a next time 🙂 We will go back to Disney (maybe in another location) when Kelsea will already appreciate all the rides.
