Breakfast
MTR Route: Mongkok -> Yau Ma Tei (Tsuen Wan Line)

For our third day's breakfast, we went to an old authentic coffee shop, Mido Cafe, located near Yau Ma Tei station. It is also listed in Lonely Planet. The old setup in the cafe brings a nostalgia feel to the olden days. The cafe is famous for its Polo bun and sandwiches. We also tried the sweet and sour chicken chop rice, which is only so-so. However, the Polo bun and sandwiches are damn good.

Disneyland
MTR Route: Yau Ma Tei -> Lai King (Tsuen Wan Line), Lai King -> Sunny Bay (Tung Chung Line)

After interchanging at Sunny Bay station, we took a direct train to Disneyland. The train is decorated with various Disney characters like Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, Jimmy Cricket, Pluto etc. We used our MTR Octopus card to exit. From there, we walked another 500 metres to the ticket counter. To share the Disneyland experience, I will summarize it as below:

Tips:
1. use the discount vouchers from the Octopus card (see Travel Tips) to purchase the tickets at  cheaper rate.
2. arrive at 10.30am, the park opening time. every minutes count if you want to cover the entire park.
3. get a copy of the daily event schedules, so that you can plan your time

Attractions you must not miss:
1. "Festival of Lion King" stage shows
2. "The Golden Mickeys" Storybook Theater
3. "Disney in the Stars" fireworks
4. Disney parade
5. Character greetings (photo session with your fav characters)
6. Disneyland railroad (round the park trip)
7. Mickey's Philarmagic

Dinner
MTR Route: Disneyland -> Lai King (Tung Chung
Line), Lai King -> Yau Ma Tei (Tsuen Wan Line)

After
Disneyland we went straight to Temple Street, Yau Ma Tei to have our dinner. After much hearing the hype about the famous claypot rice at Ying Kee Restaurant, we wanted to see what is the fuss. We ordered claypot chicken rice and fried oyster. The claypot rice comes without soy-sauce and you have to add in the soy-sauce and stir by your self instead. There is nothing special about the rice, but the 'lup cheong' (chiness sausage) in it is special. Fried oyster is tasted different from here as well. Overall, the food is acceptable, I would give 6/10 rating. However, be warned that the surrounding is not for the clean-minded or sensitive nose. I would suggest you sit indoor with air-conditioned.

Supper & Dessert
MTR Route: Yau Ma Tei -> Mongkok (Tsuen Wan Line)

After dinner, we proceeded to Ladies Market, Mongkok again because I want to eat the fried sausage at the 'dai pai tong' (roadside stalls) again and also try the famous mango 'tong shui' (dessert), Hui Lau Shan. It's everywhere, like 7-Eleven, and it open till late at night. We tried Crystal Jelly with Extra Mango and Mixed Fruit Sago in Strawberry. The taste is heavenly!

As for the fried sausages, I can't find the stall that I ate 2 days back, but found another stall
with different cooking style. It comes with satay-like sauce! Yummy! See the pic below to be prepared to salivate!


We walked back to our hostel after that.
