A Photographic Tour of Pandora - The World of Avatar, at Disney's Animal Kingdom
DisneyDan  Tuesday, August 29, 2017 9:39:20 AM
Hello everyone,

Today I want to share with you a (rather large) selection of my photos from our recent adventures through Pandora - The World of Avatar, at Disney's Animal Kingdom at Walt Disney World.

I'll give a few thoughts along the way, but I thought that on this occasion I would let my photos do most of the talking, and let you form your own opinions about the new land.

Let's start with some of the initial sights you'll see when entering Pandora from its main entry point, over the bridge from Discovery Island.

Walt Disney World July 2016 Trip Report
DisneyDan  Tuesday, November 29, 2016 10:47:42 AM
Hello everyone,

I realise that this is a little late, but better late than never, right?

Back in July we made one of our several trips for this year to the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida. As always, we had an agenda for visiting at the time that we did, and filled our short trip with everything that was wondrous and new!

Let's start with our hotel, Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge Jambo House. We have previously stayed at Kidani Village several times, and of course have visited Jambo House (but up until this trip never stayed there), and while we have enjoyed our stays at Kidani Village, Jambo House is clearly the better of the two.   [ Read More... ]
Hong Kong Disneyland Trip Report - Part Six
DisneyDan  Tuesday, August 30, 2011 10:32:27 AM
Hi all,

Welcome to the final, albeit delayed, part of my Hong Kong Disneyland trip report.
There are just a few things that I wanted to talk about that did not really fit into the other parts, as they were more about the individual lands.
So I want to now just mention the 5th anniversary happenings, summer events and a couple of other special things that we did while we were there.
Since last September HKDL has been celebrating its fifth birthday, and this year made some additions and changes to the entertainment line-up.  [ Read More... ]
Hong Kong Disneyland Trip Report - Part Four

Hi all,

Next up on my tour around HKDL is Fantasyland.
From Adventureland you can enter Fantasyland from near the Liki Tikis and the drumming area.
Alternatively you can go back to the hub and wall through the Castle or via the parade route to the right. Fantasyland in HK like the whole park is in need of more.
Overall it is a pretty land and has some good attractions, but it does lack a lot.
I would say in terms of design and theming it is better than the Magic Kingdom (once the expansion is done this statement will no doubt change), and it is certainly far better than the miserable Fantasyland in Tokyo!  [ Read More... ]
Hong Kong Disneyland Trip Report - Part Three
DisneyDan  Monday, August 1, 2011 11:39:04 AM
Hi all,
Welcome to part three of my Hong Kong Disneyland Trip Report.
In this part we venture into the jungles of Adventureland to see what it has to offer.

You approach Adventureland on the left hand side of the Hub much the same way you would at all the other Magic Kingdom style parks.
Adventureland in Hong Kong is the sole land on the left hand side of the park. No Frontierland, no Critter Country… Just Adventureland.
You enter under a sign that is similar to the one in Florida and Tokyo, find yourself in an area completely surrounded by trees and vegetation. Adventureland in HKDL takes a lot of its inspiration from DLP’s Adventureland with the tree filled more intimate and winding walkways.  [ Read More... ]
Hong Kong Disneyland Trip Report - Part One
DisneyDan  Friday, July 29, 2011 12:05:49 PM
Hi all,
So as you know I don't tend to write trip reports anymore, simply because we visit the US and Paris parks so often it just seems silly. I also report all the time about them on the blog, and the site has such extensive information and photos from our trips to those places, I just don't bother now. But, time to time something exceptional happens, such as Tokyo last year, and I feel that I have to write about it in more depth.
This year it is the turn of Hong Kong Disneyland, which we visited for the very first time this week. Last Saturday Jon, Loren and I all made our ways to our respective home city airports to begin an amazing four day adventure in Hong Kong, which initially included two days in Hong Kong Disneyland (ended up being one whole day and two half days, but I'll explain later).  [ Read More... ]
Guess who is going to Hong Kong?...
DisneyDan  Monday, June 20, 2011 9:27:14 AM

Hi all,

Today I updated the calendar to reflect a number of changes to our plans.

Our August trip to DLP has now been greatly reduced - but it has been in favour of something very special - we are going to Hong Kong next month!!

We are really excited to have this opportunity now, and cannot wait to see all the amazing things the newest Disney Park has to offer - the ONLY one Jon and I haven't been to yet!

It will mean we actually would have visited all the Parks around the world in less than a year, which is quite the feat!

Ok, that's all for now!

Dan :)
