October 15, 2012 – A childhood dream came true 🙂
Te Veck was asked to do an errand for a work colleague so we went to Mong Kok and visited Capital Computer Center. Afterwards, we had our brunch at Mc Donalds and travelled to Sunny Bay.
” A dream is a wish your heart makes, when you’re fast asleep
In dreams you will lose your heartache, whatever you wish for you’ll keep ..”
The moment I was waiting for since I first saw a Disney movie 🙂 – it’s now time to live the dream at Hong Kong Disneyland Resort.
The Mickey Mouse Train
The Welcome Arc and the Theme Park Ground
First thing I did was to look around and appreciate things around me – then came the photo opportunity with Mickey and Minnie Mouse. Since it’s only 2 in the afternoon the queue is short.
Then, we looked at the paintings, drawings and caricatures at the Animation Academy at Main St. U.S.A.
then watched the street parade where I really got teary-eyed since the realization hit me – my dream really came true – A childhood dream came true 🙂
Next, we went to Tomorrow Land where we boarded the space mountain high speed roller coaster. Then to Fantasy Land where we saw Sleeping Beauty’s Castle, the Royal Banquet Hall, Cinderella Carousel, Snow White’s wishing well but wasn’t able to see the Golden Mickeys and experience the train with the “It’s a small world” song background.
In the Adventureland, we boarded the Jungle River Cruise where we have seen animatronix.
Next is the Big Grizzly Mountain Runaway Mine Cars – an outdoor roller coaster at the Grizzly Gulch.
And then we decided to go separately so the couple with me can see the attractions at the Toy Story land and board the Toy Soldier Parachute Drop.
while I scan souvenir shops and then later on watch the Festival of the Lion King musical show. The actors and actresses really have very good singing voices – I enjoyed every bit of the musical.
After the show, I found Te Veck and Ya Rex waiting for me outside the theater. Again, we had our pictures taken and then redeemed the gift.
To end the Disneyland experience, we waited for the fireworks display. It was a play of lights, firecrackers, projected images and videos as well as famous Disney music and theme songs.
We also took pictures at the Mickey Mouse Train Station before leaving Disneyland Resort.
“Have faith in your dreams and someday, the rainbow will come smile at you,
No matter how your heart is grieving, if you keep on believing,
The DREAM that YOU WISH – Will Come True!”
Before going back to our hotel, we ate Chinese food at a local restaurant in Mong Kok – and they really have large servings.
Then, we bought preserved delicacies and boarded the bus back to our hotel.
The next day is our flight back to the Philippines and I can say that I really enjoyed my vacation in Hong Kong.
