My fifth (and final) Disney park

Folks, I've been to four of the five Disney parks in the world. The one remaining park is HK. Well: I leave for Nepal, Thailand, Vietnam and Hong Kong tomorrow evening. I'll be overseas for a month. I'll end my trip in HK. Unfortunately, I'll only be there for two days. However, I'm going to make a best-efforts attempt to visit HK DL while there. My ex GF moved there about six months ago and I'm going mainly to visit her. It's going to take some very fast talking to get her to go. I can't see myself being back there anytime soon so I'd really like to make it there this time. Wish me luck!

Also: any HK DL tips?

Rob

Did you think Disneyland Paris was completely awful or is it just me? A lot of folks have told me I should go to Tokyo Disneyland, but after my experience in France I am a little gunshy about traveling to a non-US Disney park.

Completely agree. Didn't get a good vibe from DL Paris. Didn't feel like a Disney park, for some reason.

Now: DL Tokyo is another matter. Really liked that one. Don't miss it. I've only been once. That time the park closed at 10:00. After 9:00 it was like I had the run of the park.

Fun fact about DL Tokyo. Their most popular snack? Curried popcorn. The line was super long.

Haven't been, but DH has been to Hong Kong......found it to be a half day park. Still lots that needs to be added there.
He did have fun on the Jungle Cruise by going on the Mandarin version instead of the English one.
Have fun!

Yup -- was able to make it to HK DL. I've now been to all of the Disney parks. Woo hoo!

HL DK falls fourth on my list of Disney parks. I liked it better than DL Paris but its Fantasyland left something to be desired. I mean, how can you have a DL without Peter Pan. Also, there's no POTC or HM (although their version of HM is coming soon). I was able to swipe a few pics of it from Grizzly Gulch, if anyone is interested.

I'll be in LA next week and will almost certainly get to the real DL to make up for this one :-).

The rest of my trip was awesome, BTW! Got to Nepal, Thailand and Vietnam. Never saw more motorcycles in my life than in VN. Crazy.
