A (very) Unofficial Guide to Disneyland Hong Kong

Only Go on the Best Rides

Let’s face it – this themepark is geared to kids who haven’t hit double digits. Chances are if you’re reading this you have.

The best rides (in order) include:

Big Grizzly RollercoasterIt won’t warrant a throwing of your hands in the air but it is a small thrill and a great chance to cool off from the Hong Kong humidity.

Space MountainThis indoor rollercoaster is a lot of fun and pretty crafty if you ask me.

RC RacerDubbed the ‘biggest thrill’ for HK Disneyland, this is one of the newer rides and definitely worth a try or two (or three).

Mad Hatter Tea CupsI’d suggest you give the tea cups a go BEFORE lunch – lots of fun if you have a few friends with you.

Toy Soldier Parachute DropNot much of a thrill but a good view from the top – be sure to face the park side to get a good overview.

Don’t act your age

As previously mentioned, the HK Disneyland was clearly designed with a younger crowd in mind – but don’t let that deter you, embrace it! Take the chance to act anything but your age and have fun with it. After all, it is the happiest place on earth.

Splurge on unnecessary gifts

The gift shops and souveniers at HK Disneyland are incredibly well priced for quality merchandise. Be sure to stock up and take some fun trinkets home to remember your day by.

Don’t overdo it

While you should definitely go and make the most of your visit, know when it’s time to leave. Once you’ve seen and done everything you came to see and do, head back to Hong Kong and enjoy half a day of leisure after a busy day with the crowds. Leaving before the 4-6pm rush will also mean you get back to your hotel without the added stress of crowds – especially when peak hour hits on the MTR (6-8pm).

    I’ve only ever been to the one in California (and I was 6 years old, so I don’t remember much) but I was able to go to the Harry Potter WB Studios in London with my best friend in March – probably one of my top 3 “theme park” experiences ever!
