Hong Kong Disneyland Day 2

Forgotten to share photos on how our room looks like in my previous post, so here it is.
We got free upgrade of room to Deluxe. A room with 2 queen size beds.
Free minnie mouse for us!
On each bed, they placed the “banner” on it. If you want, you can even bring it home. Haha!
The toiletries cups.
Don’t under-estimate this cup. Haha!
Inside this big cup consists of 3 more smaller cups with combs, toothbrushes, toothpaste etc.
Headed down to Chef Mickey restaurant for our buffet breakfast. It was included in the package that i took. Not much choices but good enough. Be it just a tiny piece of cucumber or carrot, or even waffle, they have it in Mickey Mouse shape! No photos taken as busy with the boys.
Had our quick breakfast and took the free shuttle bus to Disneyland at 11am. Long queue as Disneyland opens at 10.30am daily.

Note: You’re not allowed to bring your own food or soft drinks into the Disneyland.
There are security bag check counters. Any food and drinks found, will be taken away.
If you’re staying at any Disney hotels, look out for the signboard and queue correctly.
There’s a lane specially for hotel guests so you don’t have to join the long queue to go in Disneyland.
You will have to show your room card.
If you did not download the Disneyland App, then remember to get the map and show guide brochure.
To us, the app is awesome. They’ve a map and with a list of show times and attractions activities.
The moment we entered, was caught up by Donald Duck. We waited for nearly 20 minutes!
For after seeing how joyful my boys are, worth it ^^
We rent a stroller with a rain cover. Affordable rate. If i didn’t remember wrongly, one full day rental is SGD30+ and add-on rain cover is SGD5. You will need to put a deposit of HKD200. Upon returning of the stroller WITH THE RECEIPT, they will then return you the deposit. If you lost the receipt, they won’t refund you the deposit.
Most of the times we used the stroller to put our bags. Haha! Or at times either one of them is feeling tired, they can at least rest in the stroller. Luckily we rent the rain cover too as i realised Hong Kong very frequent have drizzling rain. Can be as short as a few minutes but still, better not to let the kids get wet. Due to the cold and cooling weather, anyone can easily catch a cold.
As we walked along, the husband found out that the Festival of Lion King stage show was about to start, so hurry to parked our stroller outside and went in. Fyi, the husband is a big fan of Lion King -.- Suddenly he turned into a little child too. Haha!
The stage performances was good! The sound system, the lightings, the dancers and singers, the props etc. My boys enjoyed it as much as their father. Haha! As for me, i am busy recording the whole performance for their father. There are some parts where it can be quite scary for children. So parents, always standby to cover their eyes or ears. Haha!
The mini volcano and the super clear water!
The boys’ all time favourite, Toy Story.
It became their favourite with the influence of my brother who used to be a big fan of Toy Story and my mother who dote on my brother so much that she spent a bomb in buying the toys back to SG -.-
The boys was so fascinated with everything that they don’t even wanna settle down to have a proper meal. So we bought hotdogs for them from Jessie’s Cafe.
Time for some rides!
Because Dinseyland is more for children so dont have high expectation for the rides. You can wait for 5-15 minutes to take a ride and the ride only go on for a minute or two and stop. Haha!
While waiting for Woody, we caught the Toy Soldier Boot Camp.
Hung around the area and queued up to meet Woody!
If only the boys hug us as tight as they hugged Woody. Haha!
Finally! Time for a proper meal! Lunch at 4pm. Haha! We used the meal combo coupons given that are included in the package. The coupons helped us to save ALOT! Each meal comes with a side and fruit juice. Definitely filling!
Note: If you’re taking the package, no worries about bringing not enough water because for every meal coupon, it comes with beverage coupon too! Meaning you can use the beverage coupon and redeem any soft drinks or mineral water at any push carts in the Disneyland.
We dined in at Banquet Hall at Fantasyland.
The food are really good and portions are huge!
I am missing the beef burger!
Each meal cost about SGD25. We bought 3 meals only due to the portion. See how much we saved! Haha!
Caught the Mickey and the Wondrous Book. Many thumbs-up for this! Amazed by everything! More awesome than the Lion King show! Best part, it comes with english and chinese subtitles! My happy Belen just kept clapping hands. Haha!
After the Dumbo ride, teacup time!
Around 6.30pm, we were hanging around area at, It’s a Small World as the Disney Paint the Night is just right beside it.
Went in for a gentle boat ride. So many dolls! Haha! Enjoyed myself and can’t stop “woah-ing”. The boat ride was about 10 minutes? Yeap as usual, i am busy recording. Haha! I won’t be uploading those videos that i’ve took during the show or rides as i do not want to be such a spoiler. =p
After the boat ride, we slacked around and waiting for the Disney Paint the Night to start. It was frigging cold! Sat on a bench, under a shelter, admiring the drizzling rain and praying hard for the rain to stop so they won’t cancel the Nighttime Spectacular. While Beorn was having fun with my helper, little Belen was soundly asleep in the stroller. Quite romantic for the husband and myself. Haha!
Heard the announcement made that the Disney Paint the Night – Nighttime Spectacular is about to begin! Yay! Hurry and “chop” a good spot to take video and photos. The performance starts at 7pm. Be around the area or there by 6.50pm.
Right beside the Mickey and the Wonderous Book is where the performance starts. It will move on and go around and stops at the center of the Disneyland, which is infront of the castle. To get the best view and best shot, hang around the area nearing the Mickey and the Wonderous Book.
Note: To take pretty photos for the Disney Paint the Night, DO NOT USE FLASH!
Using flash to snap, turn out you only see the equipment and not the colourful lightings.
Mickey Mouse was the last character appearance. After that, we went straight down to where the castle is to catch the Disney in the Stars Fireworks! Yay to being the first and we managed to “chop” the front row! Haha!
We waited for half an hour to 8pm for the fireworks. Trust me, is worth the wait! Luckily my boys are well-behaved and didn’t fuss. I didn’t take any photos of the fireworks, only video.
Throughout the whole 12 minutes, i was touched and got a little emotional. Haha! Not only my childhood dream came true, my boys’ too! I felt so blessed and touched that i managed to enjoy that spectacular moment with my family. That blissful moment, till today, i can still feel it too.
After the fireworks, all of us are hungry. Thank God, the restaurant, Corner Cafe accepted us to dine in when they’re actually closed for last order. Thankful. A quick order, a rather quick dinner and back to hotel.
The kids’ meals.
My beef burger, mehhh. The husband ordered steak with rice also meh. So was my helper’s spaghetti. Haha!
Total expenses:
Snacks at Jessie’s Cafe – SGD34
Dinner at Corner Cafe – SGD160
