Hong Kong Disneyland Trip Report, November-December 2015 - Part One
DisneyDan  Tuesday, December 29, 2015 11:32:56 AM
Hello everyone,

At the end of November Jon and I travelled to Asia for a multi-stop trip to Tokyo and Hong Kong. We started in Hong Kong, flew to Japan, then flew back to Hong Kong before coming back home. In this part of my report on our travels, I will be sharing with you our adventures at Hong Kong Disneyland on both ends of the trip, which ended up stretching from the end of November, until the first week of December. I am actually going to break up this Hong Kong Disneyland report into several smaller parts, as it will be quite long. Here, in part one, I'll talk about the resort overall, resort hotels, and Main Street USA (including characters and entertainment on Main Street).

During the first part of our stay, we actually stayed in a hotel in the city, and used the opportunity to visit various places in the city. You can read my report for that, which I published this week, on my Two Lost Boys blog, here. On the second part of our stay in Hong Kong we stayed on site at Disney's Hollywood Hotel. Between the two ends of the trip, we ended up having a total of four days at the resort and in the park.

Rather than jump around, telling you everything in the random order in which we did them, I'm going to group different themes together to keep everything organised and less confused.

Character A to Z - A is for Abby Mallard!

Hello everyone,

In a new series here on the blog I want to take a close-up look at all the characters Jon and I have personally seen over the years. I figured the easiest way to do this would be to go alphabetically through our main list, and so I decided to call the series 'Character A to Z'. My intention is not to provide too much text going forward, instead, really just showcasing some of our favourite moments with that character, in photos, from the Disney Parks around the world.

Obviously we have to start at the top of the list, and   [ Read More... ]

Happy 10th Anniversary Treasure Planet!
DisneyDan  Saturday, November 17, 2012 12:47:44 PM
Today is the 10th anniversary of the premier of Disney's Treasure Planet.
A much underrated film, it tells the story of Jim Hawkins in a modern day twist to the Treasure Island story.
Sadly, the characters are incredibly rare at the parks, and the only one we have ever met is B.E.N.

So, let's celebrate with him, and wish him, Jim and all their friends a very happy 10th anniversary!

Ten years ago today Lilo and Stitch premièred in the US.
Stitch was immensely popular right from the beginning, and continues to be very popular with fans today - especially in the Asian parks!

Stitch has spawned several sequel, a TV series, numerous attractions, endless merchandise and more, and I for one hope that this continues for many more years to come!

Happy 10th Anniversary Stitch, from you BIGGEST fan!!

Meeting Pirate Stitch! :D

(I should also point out that of course Lilo, Dr Jumba, Pleakley and Captain Gantu who also starred in the first movie share the birthday with Stitch, and have all been characters in the Parks. The other experiments and Dr Hamsterville came in the later movies and series).
