Hong Kong Disneyland ~ Flight Of Fantasy Parade

Image
The mood was festive and jovial! An experience your family will surely remember through the ages...
First some TIPS:
Tip 1: This is one of the park events NOT to be missed!  As soon as you have entered the park, check out the schedule of the Flight of Fantasy Parade.


Tip 2:  Get good seats, about 30 minutes before the parade starts.  
Tip 3:  Be considerate in using selfie sticks.  Use of selfie sticks are generally prohibited inside the park, but it was more comfortable using one filming a parade 5-10 minutes long.  Nobody will confiscate it, but please be mindful of other people watching.


Thumbs UP READY!
The Parade starts with Dumbo's float

And a Marching Band ~


Followed by the All Star Disney Characters (Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, Chip and Dale, etc.).  I was too captivated with Minnie Mouse, I kinda forgot to take pictures of the rest of the Crew :P

We wanted a special holiday with the kids (they are growing up so fast) and decided to welcome 2018 in Hong Kong Disneyland.  It has after all been 5 years since we have last been to Hong Kong.  Though we were recently in Tokyo Disneyland, the volume of guests was heartbreakingly huge ~ to truly enjoy the park.

We booked a 3 nights stay at the Hong Kong Disneyland Hotel and opted for an upgrade to the Kingdom Club floor.

The elegant service and perks is well worth the additional cost.

Welcoming 2018 at Hong Kong Disneyland

Image
We were at Hong Kong Disneyland (HKDL) to welcome 2018. 
It has been five (5) years since our last visit. My 13 year old is now half inch taller than I am and my 9 year old is likewise growing as fast.  

Since we have been to HK numerous times before (Check here to read about our trip to HK in 2012), our HK year-ender was spent primarily touring the park.



Our before and after picture at HKDL (5 years apart).



Without toddlers (i.e., no whining and no piggy-backing) this HKDL travel was actually more enjoyable.  






DAY 1 (December 31) Arrival / Shopping at City Gate Outlet Mall (the closest to Hong Kong Disneyland Resort, where we are staying).   We took the Philippine Airlines 8am flight and arrived at HK Airport at about 10am. 

After deplaning, we made our way out of immigrations and picked up our pre-rented pocket Wifi via Klook.  I have been using this attractions/tours booking site for sometime now (used it in Singapore, Macau and Japan tours) and find it quite efficient.
