… here we come!!!!
I woke up earlier around 630am this day to get ready for check-out before we proceed to our next destination – the long awaited place for the kids… Around 700am, both the kids woke up and kept asking, when we are going to disneyland.. after some last minute packing and getting the kids ready, we all set to Disneyland Hollywood hotel for check-in.
Once we reached there and settled in, the clock shown only @930am, I told hubby that, maybe we should let the kids have their milk first before we took the shuttle to Disneyland park which will only open around 1030am. Also the shuttle is very convenient as it’s came to the hotel every 10minutes interval so no rushing at our side at all..
Around 1015am, we are all set to the park. When we reached there it was like ” people mountain people sea” as it is a weekend, we walked around the main area which we saw kiosk selling cap /hat and umbrella. Zoey got excited and start to asked us to buy her a minnie hat which cost like HKD200 while Chloe want to have a “pooh pooh” hat. We get both of them each since we already decided that today is their day and they get want they want… then proceed to check into the park since upfront i already brought the ticket when i checked in to the hotel that morning. We went straight to the stroller rental store and get one for chloe for HKD60 per day.
Since my sister advice us to goes straight into the cinderalla carousel first which is situated inside the park to avoid the crowd. true enough, when we reached the cinderalla carousel the queue was not long and we get into the carousel almost immediately. After that, we walked awhile and the kids asked for lunch, we get them some snack like hotdogs and the soy chicken drumstick from the park… the price are a lil bit on the high side. While hubby queuing to buy the snack, we saw Donald Duck greeting people and all people was like running towards them and for us, we are lucky that Donald is moving the small corridor which is very near to where we waiting and Zoey started to get excited and keep on calling Donald. We quickly walk towards Donald and managed to captured a photo with the character. After the kids have their meal, we walked around the park and we captured some photo with the “gorrilla” – not sure what is this character called, the pirates, the stitch from Lilo and Stitch, Snow White and Princess . We also managed to watch the high school musical and the disney parate with all the character in it.
Lastly, we asked around where is Mickey and Minnie since the kids want to have a picture with them. after some indication from them, we walked toward the area and the area was jammed pack with people queuing to take photo with mickey and minnie. Hubby queue for almost an hour before our turn and the kids played with mickey and minnie awhile before we took our photo with them, later we proceed to Goofy and Pluto area. We also managed to take photo with them.
Since before our trip, we already decided to have a meal with the character for the kids to enjoyed and have a meet up session with their favourite character. We spent around HKD1000 just for a meal with the character @ enchanted garden in the Disneyland resort. We took the later session since we want to watch the firework which was scheduled at 730pm @ Disneyland park.
We have a great time @ the Restaurant as Mickey, Minnie, Trigger, and Piglet are there to greet the kids and they walked around the table to spent sometime with the kids. Zoey was excited and was playing, dancing and joking with them while Chloe was busying herself with the ipod that i brought for her to play with. Mickey, Minnie and Piglet trying to played with her but no respond from her… Towards the end of the session, Chloe start to warm up and played with the Characters..
That is the end of our wonderful trip to Disneyland. As I told hubby, although we spent quite alot for this trip, it is all worth it to see the kids enjoying themselves and us, although we are so tired taking care of them ( the maid was left with my mom) , we had spent quality time them with them which is so precious for both of us….
