On our day 1 of our Hong Kong-Macau vacation, we headed to Hong Kong Disneyland despite the jetlag and lacking hours of sleep. We arrived in Hong Kong at 7:40 AM, went straight to our guesthouse in Tsim Sha Tsui via the Airport Bus and grabbed our breakfast at Yoshinoya.
Going to Disneyland is a breeze even for a newbie traveller in Hong Kong, just a sense of direction, a map, familiarity of MTR stations and the Octopus Card. From Tsim Sha Tsui station, ride the train going to Lai King station, hop on to the other line, Tung Chung line, get down at Sunny Bay station (the interchange station to the Disney Resort Line) wherein you can see the Disneyland train.
Disneyland Park Tickets can be bought at the main entrance or online. Ticket prices are as follows:
But if you’re looking for discounted and cheap Disneyland tickets, you can ask the staff of your guesthouse or hotel if they sell them. HK Taisan Guesthouse where we stayed sells discounted Disneyland tickets so we availed the tickets at HKD 285 only. If you can’t find cheap tickets at your hotel/guesthouse, you may purchase tickets at Traveleasy Ltd. located in Central. This is by far the one that sells the cheapest Disneyland tickets and also Ocean Park tickets.

The best time to go to Disneyland is during weekdays to avoid the crowd. If you have kids with you, it’s best to start early at around 11 AM until the fireworks at 8 PM. If your group consists of adults, you can go there after lunchtime since food and drinks inside the park can be quite expensive. The most important thing is to never leave Disneyland without seeing the Disney on Parade at 3:30 PM and Disney in the Stars fireworks display at 8:00 PM. To maximize your day in Disneyland, be familiar with the Disneyland attractions and time guides, you can grab the map and times guide brochures at the park entrance. Finish all the shows in the morning like Mickey’s Philharmagic, The Golden Mickeys and the Festival of the Lion King. In the afternoon, enjoy the rides and lastly, have your picture taken with your favorite Disney characters. Be warned though, Mickey and Minnie Mouse are a hit so be prepared to wait in line.
Hong Kong Disneyland is a place for kids and adults alike. Rekindle the inner kid in you and experience the magic. Enjoy the photos below…
