We did not go to Tokyo DL, but did go to Hong Kong DL with ABD. I did not find a book, or much info on line, but it is so small and was not very crowded when we there, that a book would not have provided much help - it was easy to figure out being there.
One curiosity - people wanted photos with characters, but my daughter was one of very few who wanted autographs!

Interesting that autographs are not popular there. I am really more interested in finding a book on Tokyo DL because I understand it is larger, and sounds like it might be configured differently from the typical DL. I have found some info online, but not much.

Lynn, I'll answer you quickly here then I'll send you an e-mail and tell you about my China trip. Still getting my "groove" back from my 2 weeks in China. Didn't do Adventures by Disney. It was Anna, 17 year old Chinese girlfriend (grandson's Chinese tutor) and Tripadvisor.com. It was an amazing trip. I am putting the Hong Kong Disneyland Guidemap in the mail for you. You will love Hong Kong Disneyland - it is just a minature Disneyland/Disneyworld in every respect. So glad we saved it for the last. We were there June 3 - overcast so the temp wasn't bad. They have 4 rides we don't have here - only got on 1 as the lines were more than an hour long. I loved the Disneyland Hotel, the grounds, the train - it was the perfect way to end a fantastic trip. I want to go to Vietnam - so hope to do it with Adventure by Disney but need to do the Baltic next Summer. So sad Disney isn't going there so guess I'll have to be satisfied with Holland.

Thank you SO MUCH! You will love the Baltic too!

You can probably leave the hair dryer at home since all of the hotels have them.

The Peninsula Hotels (Beijing and Shanghai) have North American plugs (and voltage!) so you don't need an adapter. It might help if you had a power bar though if you have a lot of stuff to charge. The plugs are located on the desk. The North American voltage ones in the Peninsula are ONLY on the desk.

The Shangrila hotels ... I think we used the European/Asia plug adapter.



I can't remember if we used the above plug in the Shangrila in Hong Kong. Hong Kong usually uses the same plugs as the UK... the giant 3 prong plug.

I thought I'd add that because of some advice here on the Disboards, I bought a power bar that I could use over there. I found a place that sold 220 volt power bars (it's a German power bar made in China. ). If you can find the dual voltage power bars, even better!

I can use it when I travel in Europe now too.

We have travel power strips that we bought from Magellan's that we take with us whenever we travel. That and adaptors for the proper area.

I was just about to ask about adapters! Thanks for the info!

We are SO excited about out ABD China trip mid-July! We got our cool box/trunk with the back packs - I won't let DH throw the box/trunk away yet - just too creative!

We got our visas at the end of last week so we really are good to go at this point. FYI for anyone with an internationally adopted child.... the visa process was a bit scary. Our DD15 was adopted as an infant from Vietnam, carries a US passport, citizen, etc. Apparently, that can cause the Chinese to "think" about whether or not to grant her a visa!!!! (The facilitator said it was even a bit more dicey if she was born in China!) After providing copies of nearly all of her original adoption paperwork, she was granted a visa. Just irritates me that she can't be treated like any other US citizen.... So, if you were gifted with an internationally adopted child, start the visa process as early as reasonable!

The Chinese government is funny about their "citizens". I think they think born Chinese, always theirs. My dad was born in Hong Kong and hasn't lived there since the early 60's. And even then, Hong Kong was a British colony at the time. He had a British passport then. Now as a Canadian, when he applied for the visa, they asked for his old Hong Kong identity card and birth certificate. A passport wasn't enough. Thankfully, for whatever reason, he kept it after over 50 years. Even then, his visa was completed 1 day later than ours. Your daughter is in good company.

Which trip will you be going on?

We're going (our first time with ABD!) on the July 14th trip. Can't believe it's just next week.
