Day One: American Main Street - Tomorrow Land - Fantasy Land - Adventure Land - Firework
Disneyland is a must see in Hong Kong, not only for children, but also for adults. The park is large and full of exciting rides, fabulous performances and activities, so we suggest a two-day trip there.
Hong Kong Disneyland
The Disneyland Resort is located on Lantau Island and accessible with various convenient transportations.
By MTR: take the Tung Chung Line to reach Sunny Bay and change to the Disneyland Line to the resort. From Hong Kong International airport, it takes only 23 minutes (from airport to Tsing Yi, change to Tung Chung Line to Sunny Bay and then Disneyland Resort Line). From Kowloon, it takes about 30 minutes, and 33 minutes if you start from Hong Kong Island.
By bus: take R11 or R22, which costs HK$38 per adult. R11 runs from Mong Kok to the Disneyland Resort and R22 runs from Jordan. Bus No.R33 from Tuen Mun and R42 from Tsuen Wan also reach the resort directly. Alternatively, you can take any bus to Lantau Link Toll Plaza and change to bus No.R8 to Disneyland. The admission for a two-day ticket is HKD585 for adults, HKD415 for children aged 3 - 11, and HKD170 for seniors over 65 years old.
Upon arrival at the park, we suggest that you check into the hotel first. There are two hotels near the resort, the 5-star Disneyland Hotel and the 4-star Disney's Hollywood Hotel. Both hotels are decorated in the typical Disney style, so it will be fun and also convenient.
Visitors have to go through security check before entering the park. Food and snacks are not allowed inside, but each visitor can take one bottle of water. There are seven theme parks in the resort: American Main Street, Fantasy Land, Adventure Land, Tomorrow Land, Toy Story Land, Mythic Point, and Grizzly Gulch.
You will first see the American Main Street. Get the free map and timetable at the City Hall on your left hand side. On the street, you will have the opportunity to meet the Disney characters, such as lovely Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, and Winnie. Don't miss the wonderful parade at 15:30.
Continue to visit the Tomorrow Land. The most popular sites in this area are the Buzz Lightyear Astro Blaster, Space Mountain (the famous indoor roller coaster) and Stitch Encounter. Usually you need to wait in long queues to enter the halls, so there are Fastpass cards for the Space Mountain and Buzz Lightyear Astro Blaster which enable you to enter the halls directly at designated time without waiting in lines.
Afterwards, proceed to the Fantasy Land. At the Fantasy Garden, you will meet the Disney characters (12:00 - 14:30 and 16:00 - 18:30). In 'It's a small world', you see a colorful mini world. Then enjoy the vivid 3D movie at Mickey's PhilharMagic. You might even smell the perfume of the banquet and feel raindrops in the movie. Another performance you should not miss is the music show at Golden Mickeys. Try to sit at the front or by the alley so that you have a chance to interact with the actors.
If time permits, continue to visit the Adventure Land. There we recommend the Festival of the Lion King, Jungle River Cruise and the Rafts and Tarzan's Treehouse. Or, we suggest you have an early dinner and go back to the Sleeping Beauty Castle in Fantasy Land or the American Main Street to enjoy the fantastic lights and firework at around 08:00. Then go back to your hotel.

Day Two: Toy Story Land - Mystic Point - Grizzly Gulch
Today we have a relatively loose itinerary. The resort opens at 10:00.
We will go to the Toy Story Land first. Meet the lovely friends from the Toy Story film and take photos with them. Thrilling rides designed according to the toys in the film such as RC Racer, Toy Soldier Parachute Drop and Slinky Dog Spin will definitely turn on your adrenaline.
Proceed to the Mystic Point. Take the Mystic Magneto-Electric Carriage to visit the Mystic Manor, exhibits Lord Henry's precious collection from all over the world. Continue your visit to the Grizzly Gulch. You will be welcomed by a short music and dance performance. Then prepare to ride the thrilling Big Grizzly Mountain Runaway Mine Cars.
By now, you have finished all the theme parks in the resort. Then it's time for shopping! You can find many interesting souvenirs and toys. Don't forget to take the fun of Disney back home.
If your time is limited, we suggest that you take the Disneyland Train to finish all the parks in one day.
