Maybe some of the new lands will be open by then? I think that they are building Toy Story Land first?

What a lovely collection of photos! You've given us a wonderful overview of Hong Kong Disney. Somehow I missed reading your report in May, but thanks to the handy link, I'll soon catch up. Thanks.

I feel your pain. On my last trip (Singapore and Hong Kong) my memory card corrupted and I lost, I think, around half my photos. Fortunately the HKDL ones were fine, but I did lose a lot of Singapore.

Great photos. How strange it is to see real mountains surrounding a Disneyland park

Yes, HKDL may be small for the moment, but it is very charming and it has a lot of things going for it....like mentioned above, the mountains and just sheer unique location make this park really feel special.

I have pics from my trip, and tried specifically to get a shot of the Jungle Cruise like the one posted above, where it looks like you're REALLY going into the jungle!!

Edit: I'd also like to mention that I LOVED HONG KONG...the city is incredible...I actually considered possibly moving there

Just returned from Hong Kong...

I just returned from a trip to Hong Kong - with a stop at Hong Kong Disneyland, of course.

As previous posters have said the park is small but very charming. Cast members went out of their way to be helpful and friendly to us.

One item that has not been mentioned before is that the Hong Kong cast members have great pins for trading. The pin trading craze has not caught on there. Many cast members had pins and were more than willing to trade. The cast members pins are much larger and more colorful than the majority of pins we have in the US. I brought 25 pins for trading that I got off of Ebay and I felt a little sheepish trading our small US pins for the grand and glorious Hong Kong pins. The cast members had no problem taking the puny US pins, thank goodness. Hong Kong is definitely a pin traders paradise.
