Hey PIO, I have been to HK twice with my husbands aunt and his cousin! We stay at the City View in a Premier room, which is on the cnr of Waterloo and Nathan Rd, Kowloon. It is directly opposite the Yau Me Tei station, walking distance to Ladies Market etc You'll be fine with the Octopus card, it's so easy and the MTR is easy to use, even for a dummy like me with no sense of direction!!! Look forward to hearing what else you have planned for the trip!

”Pick a ‘Ph…’! Pick a ‘Ph…’! It’s Audience Participation Time!

”Pick a ‘Ph…’! Pick a ‘Ph…’!”…It’s Audience Participation Time


”Pick a ‘Ph…’! Pick a ‘Ph…’!" It’s Audience Participation Time!


That’s right, audience (that includes you lurkers as well)….you read it right here. It’s Audience Participation Time!

Pick a “Ph” – Disney “Phirst” or on Day “Phat”?


I’ve been looking at accommodation options and before I can progress further, I need to work out that most important of all questions!

Do I go to HKDL immediately after arrival, i.e., ‘phirst’? Or do I go to HKDL after day ‘phat’ (8)?

Remember audience….
  • We will have 11 nights in HK and plan to spend 3 nights at a HKDL resort hotel.
  • We are arriving into HK after 9 pm on a Saturday and I expect to be out of the airport after 11 pm (at the earliest).
  • I believe that we will purchase the 2-day entry ticket to HKDL, which should be ample time to see the park at a slow pace.

Which would you do and why?




ps. Feel free to de-lurk and play!!

Well my vote would be for day Phat! My reasoning behind this is that you almost always know what to expect from Disney. It will most likely be a high point of the trip, even though you might experience some other great times before that, you can end on what should be a high note.

I've never combined a trip to Disney with anything other than a trip to Universal, and I did that first becuase I knew not to expect more out of Universal than Disney so I figured doing that second would be a let down. Having no idea what there is to do in Hong Kong, I may not be the one to ask. I would end with the Magic you know and not the Magic you don't!

I finally made it across here!

I'm not sure about when to schedule Disney. We did it towards the end, but we were only there for 5 days. Two days should be enough. We did two days and didn't ride everything but I think that has to do with the fact more than half the park was shut down on one of our days and the other was packed with over an hour long wait for most attractions.

Really thinking about it I would end the holiday with a high. A Disney high!

Phat.

If you do Disney phirst them you may regret that you have to leave without doing Disney again. Of course this is assuming that doing Disney is going to be the highlight which considering we are on a Disney Forum goes without saying.

If we were on a shopaholics forum then the plan would be shop do Disney then shop some more. If we were on a Gourmet Asian food forum (though this PTR almost qualifies) then I would say restaurant hop, Disney then some more restaurant hopping. So do your shopping, sight seeing and restaurant hopping phirst and Disney Phat.

Ideally you should be staying at a Disney Resort the whole time and doing Disney phirst and phat but this is not a Disney trip right

Phe.....Phi.....Pho.....Phum..........




I say ....



GO ON WEEKDAYS!!!!!!


The main thing is -
Avoid "peak days"
Avoid Weekends
Avoid any time around national holidays...which usually tie in with 'peak' days but either way...avoid that...

Be aware....
They don't release the complete schedule until a WEEK in advance

Unless things have changed

Hmmm....I'm a save the best for last type of guy - so I would tend towards "Phat". Though I do agree with Queenie's point, go when it is least crowded.
