Last weekend was a magical one because I got to spend it with my dear wife in Hong Kong Disneyland. It was our second visit together to Hong Kong and I think it is incredible that we had entered Disneyland three times – all in the span of less than a year. This time, we had the opportunity to visit the new Toy Story Land (more on the upcoming post) as well as catching the Flights of Fantasy Parade which we missed during our last visit.
That being said, we still have not thoroughly explored Hong Kong Disneyland, get on all the rides and watch all the shows they have. So you can imagine how huge the theme park is and there are just too many things to see and do. I will recommend at least a two days tour if you are serious to fully enjoy Hong Kong Disneyland.
As soon as we reached Chek Lap Kok International Airport, we took a taxi to Disneyland’s Hollywood Hotel where we were staying to meet up with our personal tour guides. The taxi ride (~HKD137) was recommended by the airport staff as the cheapest and fastest way to Disneyland, as compared to taking the MRT and Airport Express or bus.
After that, we were ushered to Crystal Lotus restaurant at Hong Kong Disneyland Hotel for lunch. To get there, we hopped on to the free shuttle bus that services the route of Disneyland Theme Park -> Hong Kong Disneyland Hotel -> Disneyland’s Hollywood Hotel. The bus services’ frequency is high and we never had to wait more than 5 minutes for it to arrive.
We had a customized lunch menu consisting some of the signature dishes carefully prepared by Crystal Lotus’ award winning chefs. First course on of the menu was Roasted Suckling Pig with Cucumber and Sweetened Paste in Steamy Piggy Mask Buns. The serving style is similar to eating Peking Duck with Buns, just that the duck and buns are substituted accordingly and presented in a much cuter way.
