Hong Kong Disneyland: 10 Reasons To Visit Hong Kong’s Happiest Place

Hong Kong Disneyland: 10 Reasons To Visit Hong Kong’s Happiest Place

What can be better than shrugging off the week’s stress at the most beautiful and famous theme park in Hong Kong, Disneyland? Disney has evolved from being a kids’ entertainment and mass- media to one which even adults can relate to. A trip to the mesmerizing fantasy world is enough to lift even the worst case of fatigue and tiredness. People mostly go there with their children, but amidst all the fairy tale magic, it sure feels like a romantic getaway too. 

Spread across 28- acres of land on the Lantau Island, the Hong Kong Disneyland, or commonly abbreviated as HKDL, this Disney Theme Park was opened in the year 2005 and has celebrated its 15th-anniversary last year in 2020. If you haven’t yet visited the magical Disneyland, this is your cue to change that.

What are the 10 Reasons to Visit Hong Kong Disneyland?

Here are 10 reasons why Hong Kong Disneyland is a must-visit holiday destination - 

  1. A New Show
    After ten years of The Golden Mickeys, Hong Kong Disneyland has lastly decided to introduce a new musical show. The new show promises a better version of the former in terms of stage setup and musical line-up. The people behind the 25-minute show, Mickey and the Wondrous Book made sure that the new addition is never short on spectacle.

This Broadway-inspired musical features seven beloved Disney tales. The music changes from Broadway to Bollywood to hip-hop, and even gospel. Plan a perfect getaway with your family with Klook this 9.9 Sale and apply the Klook Promo code to avail of huge discounts on bookings.

Beginning with Mickey Mouse and Goofy sneaking into a library and accidentally they open a book setting Olaf, the beloved snowman from Frozen, free from its pages. Both Mickey and Goofy have a hard time trying to find a way of bringing Olaf back before he melts.

  1. Filipino Pride
    It is highly unlikely not to spot a kababayan (countryman) when you are visiting Disneyland. As a shocking statistic, of the more than 7,800 crew members working in Hong Kong Disneyland, the majority of them are Filipinos working on and off the stage, on the streets, and behind the kitchen counters.

As a matter of fact, in Mickey and the Wondrous Book, 80% of the actors and other backstage characters are Filipinos. Singers GianMagdangal and Raki Vega opened the show with the theme song “Happily Ever After.”

  1. Food: Too Pretty To Eat
    Even though you might find the Mickey Mouse dim sums to be pretty cute, they’re a gone trend. Looking ahead to the upcoming theatrical release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Hong Kong Disneyland has thought of something innovative with Star Wars-themed food.

You can easily find “the too pretty to eat” Mickey Mouse waffles; Minnie Mouse haka which is a Chinese shrimp-filled dumpling; Olaf- shaped mung bean steamed bun; and there is also Queen Elsa on top of a chocolate-coated apple, in the cafes and the Disney Hotel and Hollywood Hotel restaurants.

  1. Hong Kong Disneyland Rides
    If you are an ordinary vacationer with tickets you probably have to line up for at least 10 minutes, depending on the ride and the crowd, before getting on a ride at Hong Kong Disneyland. The theme park is divided into seven themed attractions which are Toy Story, Mystic Point, Grizzly Gulch, Adventure Land, Main Street USA, Fantasy Land, and Tomorrow Land.

You can grab your regular tickets to the park from Tiqets and get big discounts on them by using the Tiqets Promo code.

  1. A New Attraction
    If you are under the impression that you have already seen everything you possibly could in Disneyland, there’s more. The newly opened Fairy Tale Forest hosts a live storybook garden peppered with miniature iconic scenes from Disney’s Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, The Little Mermaid, Tangled, and Beauty and the Beast.

Visitors have to activate a music box to let the Disney characters come to life. You can also have a meet-and-greet session with Tinkerbell while she sprinkles some magic pixie dust into your hair. While you are having fun, you might want to check out restaurants in Hong Kong Disneyland to grab a quick bite in between your fun.

  1. Parades And Picture Taking
    If you are exhausted from all the thrill which comes with the rides, head over to Main Street, located near the park’s entrance where at around four or five every afternoon, the Disney characters participate in a state-of-art parade to show- off their costumes and floats.

And when you spot a costume-clad Filipino dancer, singer, or musician, don’t be too shy to say hi, and take a selfie.

  1. Frozen Christmas Tree Lighting
    The last four months of the year, especially December, are the ideal time to take a relaxing trip to Hong Kong and enjoy the winter. When you visit Disneyland Hong Kong you will witness how Christmas celebrations take place in the Disney way. The Frozen sister's Queen Elsa and Princess Anna glow and glimmer while singing the iconic theme song “Let It Go” from Frozen, and a Christmas tree illuminates the dimly lit Main Street.

If you are worried about the expenses you’ll endure, it is better to have a travel package for Hong Kong Disneyland to keep your budget in check.

  1. Shopping, Shopping, And More Shopping!
    Hong Kong is the most fashionable Asian country, so is there any need to say more? The boutique strip running along Main Street has quite a collection of Disney character collectibles that range from tumblers to T-shirts, car toys to key chains.

To give you an approximation of how much they cost, a refrigerator magnet costs HK$45 (P1 = HK$.16).

  1. Away From Home For The Holidays
    We all deserve a break from our regular lives holed up in our office cubicle— or if you are visiting a relative in Hong Kong— the Disneyland theme park will serve as your home away from home.

It’s convenient to reach because it is in close proximity to the airport, and, besides, it’s the Happiest Place on Earth!

  1. End It With A Bang
    After you have been through with all the eating, riding, shopping, and photographing, allow yourself to end your trip with a bang and a beautiful light show in the sky. Every day at Sleeping Beauty’s Castle the visitors can witness a colorful spectacle of modern pyrotechnics called Disney in the Stars. This beautiful fireworks show displays 49 Disney characters, including the newest additions.
