Today was our last day with the Adventures By Disney tour group.  We were having breakfast around 7:30 (the dinning room opened a half hour early just for our group!)  and to our surprise many of the Disney characters were at breakfast.  We had Goofy, Micky, Daisy, Pluto and others it was great to see them and have our pictures taken with them. 

We left the hotel around 9:00 a.m. and were off to Stanley Market.  This market is less assertive than the other markets we had shopped in and was located within walking distance to the ocean.  We purchased some local artwork including some original pieces by a local artist.  We walked to the water and took in a nice view.

After leaving Stanley Market we were off to Victoria Peak to take in the views of the city.  It was a bit hazy, but I guess it is hazy in Hong Kong the majority of the time anyway.  We had lunch in a Cafe there and we were feeling cravings for American food so we actually had hamburgers and Bob had a personal size pizza.  They were both very good.  After lunch we met the rest of the group and took the tram down the side of the mountain.  It was interesting to see the apartment buildings built into the side of the hills.  We took the bus to Pier 7 where we were taking the Star Ferry across Victoria harbor to Kowloon.  It was about a 10-15 minute ride across the harbor.  From Kowloon we had some good views of Hong Kong Island and we were also very close to a Junk Boat.

We were back to the Hotel for some of our own time before dinner.   We went back to Disneyland and went through the third haunted house, the carousel, Winnie the Pooh, It's a Small World and Jungle Cruise.  Back to the hotel to get ready for the farewell dinner.  The final dinner was at the Crystal Lotus restaurant in the Disneyland Hotel and was very good.   After dinner we went into a conference room where we viewed a slide show of the trip.  The Adventures By Disney staff did an excellent job of putting together the side show so quickly!

It was sad saying good by to everyone as we had all gotten to know each other and had a great time together.  Perhaps we will see some of the group again in the future.  We had such a wonderful time on this tour...Brian and Daisy from Adventures By Disney did an excellent job throughout the entire trip.

After the slide show, Bob & Ron went back to the park to see the parade and Maryann & I took on the job of packing.
