Martin and Cheryl Go to Hong Kong

Tue Feb 04, 2014 3:50 pm

Cheryl and I started off 2014 with a bang by visiting the parks of Hong Kong. We started with Hong Kong Disneyland, so here's a portion of that first day. Enjoy the video of Mystic Manor that Robb has graciously posted!

I looked at the video of MM earlier, Martin. And I thought it was
really the best POV of the attraction I have see so far. Great!

And I miss Chef Mickeys. Great buffet, breakfast and dinner.

Great photos. Really liked this park when I visited in 2008. Hope to make it back there at some point.

Is mystic manor as awesome as the pov makes it seem? Disney needs to work on getting this one over here asap.

They actually do those "themed scaffolding covers" whenever they are doing work on a building. I see them at MK and DL quite often during the off-season. I guess you've just been lucky to go to a Disney park when they aren't doing work on one of the buildings.

Personally, I think it's quite cool that they actually theme the scaffolding as to not make it stand out quite as much!

Awesome report! Love the ToT easter egg!

Hong Kong Disney is a very nice park. Runaway Mine Cars is a fun coaster, and Mystic Manor looks great.

The Hollywood Hotel was great, too.

Hong Kong is certainly on my travel list for the next years. Not only for the parks but also for the city itself.

Cannot wait to see more from this TR!

Chef Mickey has Disney dim sum? Might do that instead of the dim sum set at Crystal Lotus. Thanks for the pictures. I'll be there in a month.
