Greg's Hong Kong Jan 2018 trip

Sun Jun 04, 2017 4:37 pm

I know it's a little way off but Air Asia is having a one day sale and I managed to pick up a $126 return flight to Hong Kong.

3 full days there so one day in the Park, it'll be my 4th or 5th time I think, and then a couple of days in the city. Hong Kong is in my top 5 cities to visit.

Wow - that was a bargain Greg!  I like Hong Kong too.  I wonder if they'll have started work on the big expansion by then?  You'll have to give us an update on progress :)

Gotta love a cheap airfare and it's only a 2.5 hour flight.

Mystic Manor will be new for me.

I've just opened an instagram account because I am not a fan of facebook so I'll be able to post there. I may even live tweet!

This ones not until January, i have another couple in the planning stages for before then. I'm keen on Seoul in early August and maybe Kuala Lumpur in November. :-)  

This is a great spot for picking up cheap fares and short flights.Plus, I'm usually not too fussy about where I stay so it's easy to travel pretty cheaply. No Disneyland in either of those places though.

Ok, so this one has come around. I'm off Monday and should be in the Park either Tuesday or Wednesday. Weather forecast looks absolutely perfect for the time I'm there and the only attraction that seems to be down is the Castle.

I'd like to turn up early and do a buffet breakfast but with a couple of new hotels since the last time I was there it seems that there is a lot more choice. Any suggestions?

This has crept up quickly.

I haven't been since 2014 but it is one of my favourite cities too. Let us know what is happening around the castle-I have seen any photos since the construction commenced.

Join up to instagram Keith, I'll be trying to post photos live as I'm in the park. A few of us have accounts you can follow, details in the instagram thread. @calisotanz is mine.

I've made it to Hong Kong but I currently have my feet up in my room. I had to get up at 3am to get to the airport in time and then had some hotel issues that forced me to find somewhere else to stay so I feel I deserve the rest. I'll head out shortly to find some food.

Disneyland tomorrow! I've decided on Chef Mickey's at the Hollywood hotel for breakfast. I haven't eaten there or even seen the hotel so I'll turn up a couple of hours before the park opens for a look around.

Another Disneyland trip done and dusted. I'm spending tomorrow in the city so only the one Disneyland day.

I posted a few photos on instagram and will write up a trip report when  I get home in a couple of days.

That's a lot of steps Greg!

I'm guessing you didn't go on any of the rollercoasters... :)

There's rollercoasters?  I must have missed them. :-)

I had a look around the two new ones and much preferred Explorers to the Hollywood. 

I promise I'll be sitting down either tomorrow or the next day and writing a trip report. I just got home a couple of hours ago and am looking forward to putting my feet up and then getting a good nights sleep. My problem was that I had two really early flights (there and back) and then a really early start to get out to Disneyland for breakfast and a look around the hotels before the Park opened so i only had one morning when I didn't have to wake up to an alarm. But of course I woke up that morning at 6am anyway. :-(
