Until today, Hong Kong was the only Disneyland I hadn't visited. But Jiajia and I are having a week's working holiday in Shenzhen (she's working, I'm holidaying) and a couple of days over the border in nearby Hong Kong enabled me to tick off my 5th and final Disneyland.
It was Jiajia's first visit, however, and she loved it. She does enjoy catching up on some of the fun she missed during a difficult childhood. Her favourite ride was "Small World" - indoor boats float past animated dolls from different countries singing and dancing. We had to ride it twice!
Hong Kong is a fairly small Disneyland (about the size of the one on Paris) and hard to get lost in [see photo, right]. A new resort in being built in Shanghai by late 2015 will be three times the size (and yet another one for me to get to!). We managed to pick a day when the crowds were light and the queues were short, so we got to see pretty much everything we hoped to. The afternoon featured a lively parade [see photo, below] but we left before the fireworks show. As Jiajia pointed out, "We live in China - we see fireworks every week!"
