Whoa, I think this is going to be a long post! I have already chosen the pictures and decided to not put some of them in this post, but oh my god they are so beautiful so if you want to look at the whole album you can go here (only if you're friends with me). This is the post to continue what I blog previously about Hongkong, after all those obstacles that happened two years ago (stormy rain) and last year (I would not go there without my brother), I finally went to Disneyland.

I realized that there won't be a picture with both of us at Disneyland in one frame so I decided to ask a girl to take a picture of me and my brother once we arrived at Disneyland, and it turned out pretty good, thanks gurl!

OK, if you want to go to Hongkong Disneyland you must take the MTR to Tung Chung and alight at Sunny Bay because you gotta change train to Disney MTR. The journey began when I enter the train. The windows of the train are Mickey's-head-shapped, the seats are suede-covered, there are lots of Disney's characters statue here and there inside the train, it was so magical.

It did not take that long to reach the magical island of Disney, we alighted at the station and found so many people already gathered there. I chose Monday to come to Disneyland because I thought it wouldn't be too crowded to come on weekdays, and I was right, it's crowded but I still can play all of the attraction many times.

Quick tips from my brother: go take the map and also the time guide once you arrived at Disneyland, take time to decide which attraction you want to ride first, dont forget to look at the schedules of the parades and special attraction like the Festival of Lion King, Flights of Fantasy Parade, Disney in The Stars Fireworks, etc so you won't miss those beautiful attraction! Don't forget to eat first too when you get hungry, or you'll get sick and have to go home before the park is closed, that's gonna be sad.

So, we went straight to Tomorrowland because the greatest attraction is in that area, the famous Space Mountain. My brother and I rode it for about 10-11 times! Space Mountain is an indoor roller coaster where we board on rockets and have a very fast journey into the space. There are lots of strobe lights and planets inside it, the rockets turned and speed throung the space, it's so fast I could barely see the track! It was freaking amazing. We also played Astro Blasters where we helped Buzz Lightyear to defeat Zurg!

The picture below was taken inside the teather of Golden Mickeys, it is a musical show with characters from Disney films being nominated for awards. I cried my eyes out when they started the show with "You've Got a Friend In Me", it is just too beautiful to be true. Followed by Tarzan, Hunchback of Notre Dame, Little Mermaid, Mulan, Beauty and The Beast, it felt like all the cartoon characters I've been watching since I was a little kid come alive. After The Golden Mickeys, we also went to Mickey's PhilharMagic which is a 4D attraction. It was so fun I was being eaten by my favourite Simba.

There are lots of great attraction in Fantasyland, we went inside The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh. Actually, at first I got in there just to look for the aircon cos it was getting a little bit hot that day in Hongkong, but turned out the adventure was really good. The effects that were shown there -- amazing, so I did not regret it!

 and just like the other Disneylands, we must ride It's a Small World, which is a musical boat ride, where you can find hundred dolls singing the "It's a Small World" song.

We were so lucky that we came after Toy Story Playland was built. The orange track is where RC Car speed   back and forth for 7 times in a very fast speed, I rode this attraction for about 5 or 6 times because no one was in the queue line! I think the kids are afraid to ride this, but me and my brother took the advantage out of it, for sure!

This is one of the best pictures I took that day. I just love my brother's face and also the whole colour of the picture. I took this when we board on the Jungle River Cruise. We cruised the river around Asia, Africa and South America, oh and also Tarzan's Treehouse!

Thanks to the Time Guide we can enter the Festival of the Lion King on time! It's a musical performance portraying the Lion King story (which is my most favourite!). I saw this movie too many times, once the actress sang the intro to Circle of Life, again, I cried my eyes out. The teather was full of people wow-ing at the whole story. I could not stop wow-ing myself, it was a jaw-dropping experience!

and last but not least, you don't say you're going to Disneyland if you did not watch the Parade and also the Fireworks. The Parade started at 4pm and all of the Disney characters came out with colorful outfits. I found my favourite princess -- Sleeping Beauty, a very cute Tinkerbell who kept showing us funny faces, our hero Buzz Lightyear, Simba, Lilo and Stitch, etc. It was so pretty.

And at night, I waited for 15 minutes before the park is closed -- was totally worth it. Disneyland amazed us with their famous Disney in The Stars Fireworks. It's the one of the most amazing, the most beautiful fireworks I've ever seen in my life. I could not take my eyes off of the colorful fires that're shot through the dark sky. All I could hear was the whole crowed (again) wow-ing soooo many times. It really sent shiver down my spine because the fireworks were also combined with Disney soundtracks and videos from all of the movies :')

Going to Disneyland is like a dream come true for me and also my brother. We felt like all of my childhood come alive in one place at one time. Just when we arrived at the gate, the songs, the characters, the attractions that greeted us made me realize how grateful I am to have a childhood filled and completed with Disney movies! I can't wait to go there again with my cousins + to other Disneylands! My dad said he had to spend a full two days at Disneyland California :--o
