But all in all, it was a very nice trip; especially that I got to do my very first trip out of the country with my best college friends (I was supposed to go to HK back in 2011 but that got cancelled because of some unfortunate events). We’ve been planning a trip together but only that this time around that we finally got to do it. It was almost a decade in the making but was a memorable one especially that I got to spend it with people that meant a lot to me.
HONG KONG DISNEYLAND HOTEL
Disneyland is in Lantau Island, Hong Kong and going there you have to take the MTR and get off at Sunny Bay station. And you will need to transfer to another line which carries the Disneyland train. The Disney train soooo cute! We got all excited while riding it!
The Disneyland Hotel is nothing short of magical. The moment we stepped into the lobby, it’s like we were kids again! We saw several mascots and had our photo taken with Pluto, or was it Goofy? Anyway, since it was the Halloween season, the staff are giving out treats and stickers. I kinda felt proud while meeting staff that are Filipinos. The place is massive and beautiful! See the pictures for yourself. I particularly love the Cinderella Ballroom because of the majestic chandeliers hanging on the ceiling. It was lovely!
Since it was my college friend’s daughter’s birthday at that time, they treated her to a fairy tale fantasy by transforming her into a princess at this boutique complete with a charming photoshoot. We were like stage aunts and uncles while watching her live our Disney Princess dreams. She had chosen to become the character in Tangled. The experience was quite expensive and took a while, but seeing a girl experience that, oh my gosh, I can’t even explain the feeling. My girl friends and I can’t help but fit some of the crowns, I mean that’s the only time we can be princesses right? LOL! If I’ll have a daughter in the future, I would likely treat her to one too. I know though that it will give me more satisfaction than her haha!
The hotel room was luxurious, overflowing with Victorian elegance and charm. The bathroom had toiletries with Disney characters on them. The beds and pillows are soft and clean. There’s a veranda over-looking the courtyard. Basic items are present inside the room like a coffee making facility, personal ref, beverages, closet, cable flat screen TV, PAB-X telephones etc.
Staying here might be quite pricey, but it’s Disneyland so expect nothing but the best. After all, it is the happiest place on earth.
