Best China Travel to Beautiful Hong Kong Disneyland

My family loves character meet-and-greets as much as any Disney fan best China tours, and we always make sure to schedule time to meet Mickey, Minnie, and the rest of the crew. Character meet-and-greets seem to be especially popular in Hong Kong Disneyland. They are so popular that everyone who arrives early to the park seems to stop for the first character they see. At rope drop, we saw lines already 50+ people deep for Mickey and Duffy in Main Street. We were sorely tempted to stop too, but we instead made a beeline for Fantasyland only to find it was completely empty. We had a chance to see Mickey at our character dining earlier that morning, and we were better able to use the time for rides before everyone else had delved deeper into the park. And we made sure to visit characters at other moments later in the day, when all the lines for everything were long.


Consider walking (if you are staying at the Hong Kong Disneyland Hotel)


We found the layout of Hong Kong Disneyland a bit odd, as the park entrance is located down a long promenade. make a Hangzhou Travel. As a result, you have to walk quite a bit to reach the park entrance. Guests from the two Disney hotels are dropped off by shuttles at one end of this promenade and walk past the Disneyland subway station and a large fountain before getting to the park. We thought this was strangely inefficient — to shuttle guests just to have them also walk 5-10 minutes to the actual entrance.


If you are staying at the Hong Kong Disneyland Hotel, it may make sense for you to skip the shuttles, at least during the busiest times. You can instead walk to the park from the hotel. The walk is only about double the length of that long walk down the promenade from where the shuttles pick up and drop off. We found we could make it between the park and the hotel in about 12 minutes.


Note, however, that the Disney Hollywood Hotel is a much further walk. Read also Zhangjiajie Tour Package. Guests there need to be prepared to use the shuttles. And note that a brisk 12 minute walk probably won’t be a good choice for you unless your child is still in a stroller or old enough to walk long distances. It was too much for our 5 year old, so she rode on dad’s shoulders quite a bit. But this can be a great alternative for certain times when there are waits for the shuttles, such as at park closing.
