Hong Kong 2013: Disneyland – The Rides

Since we were moving around in a bigger group this time and stopped several times to eat and shop, we didn’t manage to take many rides. We started off with Astro Blasters in Tomorrowland while Anya and Adrian went to ride on Space Mountain. Then we took the It’s a Small World ride before heading to Toy Story Land where Anya and Adrian took the Toy Soldiers Parachute Drop before we all went to spin around in the Slinky Dog Spin. After the parade, we took the Jungle River Cruise in Adventureland. Finally the little ones sat on Cinderella Carousel in Fantasyland while Anya went back for another Space Mountain ride.

Hong Kong 2013: Disneyland – Flights of Fantasy Parade

The Flights of Fantasy parade is my favourite bit of the whole Hong Kong Disneyland experience. I love the catchy music, the elaborate costumes, the energetic dancers, the colourful floats, EVERYTHING! It’s simply perfect.

Anya was invited to take part in the mini princess parade where the little girls who are dressed like princesses have a special row of chairs set up for them with an unblocked view of the Flights of Fantasy parade. They get special name tags and have umbrellas to shield them from the blazing hot sun. The mummies get to stand behind the princesses and bake in the heat!

We didn’t have such a good view of the parade the last time we were at Hong Kong Disneyland so Anya really enjoyed herself this time! She was stoked that the princess float was parked right in front of the mini princesses for such a long time with Cinderella so close that she could wave and smile at her.
