We celebrated the end of a successful school year with a family trip to Hong Kong and nearby Macau. We didn’t spend much time in Hong Kong proper this time around. Instead, we were at… Disneyland!
Here’s the intrepid traveler on his way out at Changi Airport in Singapore, the day after school let out for the summer.
We had a nice little hotel in Discovery Bay on Lantau Island, close to both the Hong Kong airport and Disneyland itself. Various views from the room:
Enough of all that… let’s go to Disneyland!
One of Nyan’s favorite bits of Disneyland was the Sword in the Stone, which we returned to several times during the day:
The Merry-Go-Round was pretty nice too. Here’s Nyan and Mommy getting ready
and off they go!
Another favorite: the Dumbo ride
Some photos from various rides:
Other big hits were Winnie the Pooh and It’s a Small World. We were frankly less than impressed with Hyperspace Mountain (too jarring) and the Iron Man 4D ride (for Daddy at least, it elicited more carsickness than excitement). Daddy went on another roller coaster on his own, and it was good:
Another big hit, also in the Wild West section, was this huge gold nugget:
Nyan being Nyan, there was plenty of goofing around.
It was a fun, sweaty, exhausting day. After dinner and an early bedtime, we were up the next day for a ferry ride to downtown Hong Kong.
We were there to catch a high-speed ferry over to Macau… more on that in our next post!
