Said goodbye to Hollywood hotel (HK)

left the room very tidy ... thank heavens for packing cubes .. a tip from some lovely dibber out there .👍. Must be the kids that make all the mess .. it’s been lovely having all the space to ourselves.



Been a lovely a stay here but got a train or two to catch .



Off we go ...



Got to the airport with just a slight glitch ... must take note of peak times and end of line transfers ... had checked in online so was straight forward.. was flying air China. we told the check in lady we were transit 144 hrs no visa needs .. she had to get her managers advise and we were given forms to fill out there and then so she could take copies .. we had to show our onward flight details ...



DH stressed face ...



Just time for a bite to eat ...!!

We started the day meeting Duffy in a shop on Main Street .. It was a hot sunny day again . Didn’t need to rush this park at all today as we now knew it was small and easy walking around .



We just had to visit mystic manor again and enjoyed it even moor the 2nd and 3rd time .. we purchased a music box as themed to this ride and the cute monkey 🐒 Albert



We saw the festival of the lion king and really enjoyed this it was very much different from WDW. Another show was mickey’s wonderous book we like this also think it was simular to DLP. Road grizzley goulch twice again .. everything was walk on ..



We ate an early lunch at the banquet hall I found it quite funny pushing the carts around to different stations .. one thing I notice is there very little desserts .. I love WDW It’s my guilty heaven for sweet snacks !!! Hong Kong didn’t even have a candy shop ..



After bumping into Jess with no wait we just had to say howdy!! We purchased pandora charms and Disney pins for the collection .









We went to meet jack and sally .. there was a little girl who was practically a mini sally .. I sneeked a couple of pics she looked so good .. I remember waiting about 2hours to meet these at WDW .. it was mad they was no line here ..



We watch a late afternoon parade which we enjoyed in the shade .. it was burning in the sun..

The headed to an haunted house with live actors.. this was different and a little scary for Disney..



We stumbled across afternoon tea served till 5.30pm at corner cafe on Main Street .



Hot choc for DH and strawberry n banana smoothie for me ... yummy



We picked up my 1st visit pins (HONGKONG) from city hall ... although very little cast members seemed to know what they were .. one guy wished DH happy birthday... but on the plus side we did get lots of stickers given to us when passing through rides .. free Disney stuff to take home for the collection ..



We had a lovely time at this park . The weather was great although hot it was uncomfortable.. not a drop of rain 😁 To sum up we enjoyed it very much ..
What we will remember about Hongkong Disneyland.... so many selfie.. not us but everyone had a camera phone the park was full of young and older ladies dress up best dressed and full face made up ... every two minutes taking photos..

...



Mary Kay ... ??? Who is she every one has her bag !! Or suitcase

Oh and by the way Hongkong used British plugs .. my hair straighteners worked fine 👍



We were up early and ready to head to the park. This is the main purpose of this trip. After years of Florida thought we would try something different and see how the other parks compare .



The parked opened at 10 and they were very little people about shops were open up Main Street but the crowd was held back for rope drop .. as the park opened people headed for there 1st ride they was no great rush.



We went to fantasy land and hit the kiddie rides thought this best b4 all the young children turned up .. we had fun on Winnie the Pooh



Dumbo .., the tea cups were fun and not forgetting the carrocel



The rides were almost empty and we enjoyed being big kids



It’s a small world just had to be done for DH as the past trips DLP And WDW it’s been closed .., we were singing along ... our highlight was a young Chinese lady asking if she could get her photo with us ... hee 😂 hee 😂 I think she though we were celebrities!!!!



Tomorrow land was next and Hyperspace mountain we still have to take on the experience if only once .. nowadays ...A quick lunch fried chicken and fries. At comet cafe food just ok .. theme park expensive as you’d expect. DH enjoyed the iron man experience but it wasn’t up to Star Wars then off to watch the parade..



The streets were empty not what were usually used to .. so we got lots of attention from the dancers and characters ..



Onwards to toy story land where picked up the fun again .. we road grizzly gulch and Mystic manor which were both excellent.. meet Bb8 and chewi !



DH is always thrilled to see him especially if he’s wearing his t shirt !!



Wow this trip report thing really takes some work .. it totally makes me appreciate all those bloggers and dibbers who put such effort in .. thank you 😊
Meet captain jack and some spooky others running around .. watch the vilans parade.



Dropped in on a art class ( I so miss this at WDW). Firework then home .., the fireworks and lit up castle were very disappointing...



After a long day we had a much needed drink or two in the hotel lounge bar .. deleted lots of photo’s And headed to bed ..... wow end of day 2 .., will try to keep up .. but still learning 👌



Our hotel was lovely although our room was not ready till 3pm .., we had a wander round .. and maybe I should have packed my swim suit as it would have been ideal to relax by the pool for a couple of hours .



We meet goofy wandering round the hotel






We took a stroll along the front to the near by Explorers hotel






We sat and had a drink couldn’t resist the cakes ..



These were both yummy but expensive around £24 for two cakes a small can of beer and a bottle of water .. it was no wonder the hotel was very quite .



Our room was ready early around 2.15pm ..



A little surprise in our room as DH had mentioned our anniversary



We showered n changed and headed into Hong Kong .. it was much busier. We found the trains really simple to use .



We found the Hard Rock Cafe where we ate an early dinner .. we wandered around Victoria harbour ... the lights were so pretty



We too a tour on an Chinese junk ship.. it was really windy but fun and interesting. The harbour lights looked so much better from the water .. it was quite amazing to see ..



We were feeling really tired by now and headed back to the hotel for a good night sleep .. it had been a long day travelling..



Up for breakfast at crown plaza then straight to T1 Manchester .. smooth check in with ethiad .. no real que at security and boarded in no time for our flight.



We had reserved seats and had plenty of room . We were given blankets, pillows and headsets .. the service was great included free drinks and could go ask for extra if wanted .. I’d took snacks just in case, but to be honest we didn’t need them, we seem to get plenty to eat and drink ,in fact I think we only had a small Pringles and a couple of cookies I had taken from the hotel room .



I am really fussy so I ordered the fruit platter online as special request .. I was really pleased with this option from ethiad 😁 the flight was good and the inflight entertainment was great I watched 3 movies on the 1st flight and time pass so quickly .. i



DH said his food was fine but enjoyed the free alcohol more !!



We soon arrived in Abu Dhabi .. where we had approx 2 hours to kill .. we called at Burger King a had a bite to eat and after a little look around it was almost time to board our flight .. we were getting tired as hadn’t slept the 1st flight ..






Flight Abu Dhabi to Hongkong again was fine pillows blankets headsets .. our meal was served and drinks then light out to get some rest .. we were loosing 7 hours tonight so was best to try sleep .. I put on the eye mask provided and made use of the blanket and played some tunes so I could get a little shut eye ..



It wasn’t long before the lights went up and breakfast was served ..it was then time for landing .. all in all a very pleasant flight..



We picked up our luggage .... DH case had taken a beating and has a couple of small cracks in it .. hope it lasts the other flights ! We changed in the airport ... after a long night and made our way on the bullet train to Disneyland resort .. we had pre bought the 3day pass which we picked up at the airport no problem .. we found the travel on the MTR very straight forward ... we was told to use the lift as our luggage was too big for the escalator and this got on DH nerves.. especially as he’d has little sleep ..



We boarded the Disney train which was very nice and headed to our resort hotel ..









A long awaited Disneymoon for just the two of us ! A trip of a life time Hong Kong , Shanghai then Tokyo to visit all things Disney .. we have visited Walt Disney world Florida many times since we married in 1996 kids in tow . But now ...This is our time JUST Mr & Mrs M. Photo Epcot some where in world showcase taken by my 6 year old step daughter



Been counting down and planning for the pass 12 months and we're less than 10 days away ... nervous and excited

A little light packing done ... not forgetting the mouse ears ! Thank heavens for packing cubes ..
