Disneyland Hong Kong

Member Rating 3 out of 5 by Hotcurrie on April 16, 2008

Hong Kong Disneyland is the newest of the Disney Parks, having opened in 2004; there is still some construction going on. Whilst it is considerably smaller than the other Disneylands, it still has the same 'happiest place of Earth' feel about it, including a Disney Parade and fireworks show.

I read a lot of negative reviews about HK Disney before we went, mainly about how much smaller it is than the others; how it doesn't have enough rides etc. However, I now think that being smaller has some advantages;
  • The lines were shorter - we never had to wait more than 30mins once during the whole day.

  • You can see the whole park in one day - we took several days at Anaheim and we've been to Tokyo Disney twice because we didn't see everything the first time. We saw everything at Hong Kong Disney and even had time to browse the shops and see the shows, eg. The Golden Mickey's, Mickey's Philharmonic etc.

  • You don't need to get there at the crack of dawn - we arrived at 11am and stayed until after dark.

  • We reserved a good seat for the 5pm parade by arriving only 30mins before it began.

  • The park doesn't have all the usual Disney attractions, however it does have a lot of the old favourites;
  • Main Street USA

  • Tomorrowland

  • Fantasyland

  • Adventureland

  • Like all the Disney parks we've been to this one was very clean and tidy, the staff were all friendly and the food and drink were quite reasonably priced. It wasn't very busy, perhaps because it was a week day, however there were enough people to create an exciting atmosphere.

    It is definitely worth a visit.

    How to Get There
    Hong Kong Disneyland is located on Lantau Island in Hong Kong. By train, take the MTR Tung Chung line to Sunny Bay Station, then to the Disney Train to the Disneyland Resort Station. There is a ticket window at the MTR Hong Kong Station which will save you lining up at the park. Tickets range from HK295-350 for adults and HK210-250 for kids.
