Hong Kong Disneyland – Here We Go!

No matter what age you are, your first visit to Disneyland is always a memorable one. Disneyland has always been a dream holiday for millions of people around the world. The ‘Disney’ brand itself is so successful worldwide that it is inconceivable that any child in any developed country do not know what Disneyland is.

My first visit to Disneyland was in year 2007, and that’s when I was four months pregnant with Little Edison. We went to Tokyo Disneyland; it was that very moment when we fell in love with Disneyland and the joy, magic, and inner child it brings out in us.

May 2007

We made a pact that we’ll bring our son to Disneyland to experience the same magic when he turns three. And so we did! We brought him to Hong Kong Disneyland last year, and it was truly an amazing trip for him. He was excited with the Disney characters meet and greets, as well as the non-stop fun rides in the park.

Personally, I find that Hong Kong Disneyland is a good introduction to the world of Disney especially for parents with young children. It’s compact enough to complete within a day. It’s also exciting enough to spend another day if you have a two-day pass. From Singapore to Hong Kong, it’s just a short four-hour flight. It doesn’t tire the kids so much.

We’ve been looking forward to next weekend for a while now. Yes, you’re right! We will be heading over to Hong Kong Disneyland to soak in some much-needed Disney magic! When we break the good news to Little Edison, his face instantly lights up with excitement. Suddenly, he knows exactly what day of the week he is in, and able to count down to it. That’s our first dose of Disney magic!

Secondly, this trip is also extra magical because our boy’s birthday is approaching. We’re planning for a mini party in Disneyland to celebrate his fifth birthday.

On this trip, we’ll be able to enjoy the two latest attractions in Hong Kong Disneyland:

  1. Toy Story Land, which was opened late last year, and it is Asia-Exclusive!
  2. Grizzly Gulch, which was just opened in July this year, and it is World-Exclusive!

I can’t wait to try out these latest attractions, experience the Disney characters come to life, indulge in some delicious Disney-themed food, watch the fireworks at the Sleeping Beauty castle and share this wonderful experience virtually with you.

I’ll be updating details of our trip when I return.

    How great that E will be spending his birthday at the happiest place on earth!! We have been thinking about a trip to Disneyland for a really long time too. Poppy is a huge Mickey Mouse fan (apart from her name, one of the first words she could spell was M-I-C-K-E-Y haha); I have no doubt she would enjoy Disneyland too!

      Hi Adora,
      Poppy will definitely enjoy Disneyland. I thought girls usually fancy Minnie.. She is so special that she likes Mickey instead. 🙂 Edison is a big fan of Mickey Mouse clubhouse…
