Worth checking out Ocean Park while you're there. Check out Theme Park Worldwide vlog from there, looks absolutely amazing .

We loved HK Disney. The train trip there from the city was great with a Disney train. The Park itself was great, old school Disney with good rides. Mystic Manor was good and the atmosphere in the whole park was friendly and welcoming. Dont miss it.

Also use the Star Ferry and the underground for transport. Very easy to find your way around. Organised trips were overpriced by comparison.

Thanks for all the advice. We are on the verge of booking a hotel and definitely plan to visit Disney.

Been looking at tickets and whats this meal package all about? Something like 24 each but mentions a lunchtime meal plus signature restaurant meal after 4.30. That sounds too good to be true.

My two tips are dont bother with the cable car up to the peak but take the bus up. Its much more exciting travelling up the mountain on a small winding road with the double decker bus not slowing down with a vertical drop a few feet away. Then take the cable car back down.

Also dont bother with most of the markets as they are pretty pointless and instead head to Stanley for the lovely market and shops. Plus you have the beach and views.

We went to Hong Kong Disneyland last May and had the time of our lives. We stopped in Hong Kong Disneyland hotel (ignoring comments to stop elsewhere due to it's location) and were so pleased we did. You can go anywhere in Hong Kong thanks to the excellent Metro (MTR) system, the longest we waited for a train was 3 minutes in the whole of our stay and the station is right outside Disneyland a very short walk from the hotel.

Disneyland itself is fantastic and reminded us of how Magic Kingdom (WDW) used to be before it got so busy. Give it a few years and there will be so much more to do there with Frozen land and Marvel Land opening.

Make sure you download the Hong Kong Metro app to your phone and it will give you directions to anywhere via the Metro System it is absolutely fantastic.

Although it was mentioned above to avoid the markets, Temple Street night market was an eye opener and although not great for shopping it was great for the atmosphere.

Can you no longer take the funicular railway up to the peak? We haven't been since 1996 and we are going again next February. It will be DD's first time. She is determined that we are going to go to Disney but we'd like to do all the other touristy stuff too.

We did Ocean Park in 96 and it was a lovely day out but, I think, if we are doing Disney this trip then one park is enough.

Is Aberdeen Harbour still worth a visit?

As far as I know the cable car is at Ngong Ping 360 (Big Buddha), that's where we caught the cable car anyway and it was spectacular? The tram is definitely still at Victoria Peak and I don't remember seeing a cable car at Victoria Peak but may be wrong?
