Disneyland - Hong Kong, its just not exhilarating. It wont take your breath away, addict you or have you craving more, more, MORE. Its a decent enough novel experience. All the giddy, catchy and irritating Disney tunes are there; Aladdin, the little mermaid, beauty and the beast... songs you thought had died some years ago or been forgotten in childhood are back to drive their way into your skull. I'm not sure what the suicide count is on the 'its a small world' ride, but it must be in the millions. Hearing this song play about 348 times in succession is enough to drive the most hardened will to the brink of oblivion.
We arrived around 11am. The attractions we managed to enjoy; Tarzan's Island, Space Mountain, the Lion King show, the 4d theatre show, an average fast food lunch, and that's actually about it. This took 7 hours for the record, the worst part being a lengthy, disgusting wait for the space mountain ride. Getting aboard, eventually, was actually pretty fun. The price we paid was a huge wait, with pushing, shoving primitive locals, who behaved with the manners and patience of animals. Even the staff were at times shocked, holding the beasts at bay.
The 4d ride was awesome, really good quality 3d, smell, the feel of wind, water, to your Disney favorites. Leaving Disneyland, the skies being as blue as we'd seen them in Hong Kong, Nat and I elected to go straight for the peak lookout. We eventually got to the top via public bus 15C, and were treated with some great views. We were just in time, before a typical Hong Kong fog started to descend on the peak. We enjoyed a nice dinner, before descending ourselves on the 'Peak Tram' back to the ground of Hong Kong island. We adventured on foot through the streets at around midnight to Central station and were back home!
An exhausting day in the end, but another good one :-)
Tomorrow, Ocean Park, and perhaps an evening boat ride to soak up the city lights for our final night.

Note - Phone international roaming is now active! So i can be contacted again :)
