Where to Buy Tickets?
You can buy tickets in the park, here are the prices of the tickets:
But Before going to Hong Kong Disneyland, we highly recommend that you buy tickets online already. So, you can get yours through Klook:
If you got your ticket through Klook, there are usually promos like Hong Kong Goodies. Plus, you will just scan the QR code from your phone to get through the entrance.
TIP: To get 5% off, use the code HAPPYANDBUSYTRAVELS before checking out. This is applicable if you purchase your Hong Kong Disneyland through the Hong Kong Klook Pass.
Getting to Hong Kong Disneyland
You can get here by private transfers, buses, or by train which is the most famous way of getting here. Just go to Sunnybay station, then ride the Disneyland train.
We arrived at Disneyland’s train station.
Photo Opportunity Tip: Wait until everybody goes to the entrance so you can get a solo picture in the train station. If you have the time, you can also ride the train back to Sunnybay station so you can have the train all by yourself.
Then, we saw the entrance! By the way, we wore the exact clothes that we used during our first visit.
Then, there is the iconic Mickey Mouse surfing on the Whale fountain.
Here is the map, so save this for reference. You can also see this in the app.
There are a lot of attractions in the park and it is divided into 7 parts.
Main Street U.S.A.
As soon as you pass by the entrance, the first attraction is the Main Street U.S.A.
There are a lot of shops here, plus a bakery.
The next part is Tomorrow Land, which is the next part that can be seen if you go to your right. There are two dining options, two stores, and four rides here.
Ant-Man and the Wasp: Nano Battle Ride
There was no line when we came to this part, so we immediately rode the Ant-Man and the Wasp.
We got to ride one of these chairs with a gun, and we tried to shoot the target with lasers. There is a scoring system so we get to see who won.
Iron Man Experience
One of the most famous rides during our first visit is the Iron Man Experience. So we went here again to ride it.
There was almost no line, so we just waited for 3 minutes. It looks like the ride just opened.
Sorry for the blurred picture but this is what it looks like inside of one of the pods that we rode.
This is one of the top rides, the Hyperspace Mountain.
This is an indoor roller coaster ride that has a space theme so it is a bit dark inside. While riding you do not know what is the next twist and turn.
Here is the roller coaster ride, you must try this one too!
This is the classic Disneyland part in all of the Disney theme parks. There are six rides, two restaurants, two attractions, one theater, and one store.
It’s a Small World
This is the classic ride that will give you a glimpse of the culture of each country.
Here are some snippets inside.
There are also parts that show Disney characters, just like Cinderella here.
The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh
We didn’t ride this one because the line is so long, but we had a chance the first time. This is a chill ride that shows Winnie the Pooh’s adventures.
Mad Hatter Tea Cups
This is a ride that can make you a little dizzy but this is loved by kids. The tea cup serves as the chair that spins for a few minutes.
Dumbo the Flying Elephant
This ride makes you experience flying like Dumbo.
Toy Story Land
This is one of the farthest parts from the entrance, the Toy Story Land. It has three rides, one store, and two attractions.
Right from the entrance, it feels like the inside of the toy box already.
I was actually amazed that Disneyland always thinks about the decoration of the place even the tiny details. Just look, the grass along Toy Story Land is all super tall. I wondered why, I thought it was just a normal decoration, but Busy pointed out that the grass is all tall because we are like toys in this area too. Toys are small so the grasses are all tall, it gives the perception that we are small like toys.
This is a roller coaster but with a U trail only. We get to ride in a racing car and go back and forth.
Toy Soldier Parachute Drop
It looks like a chill ride but those who are afraid of sudden drops or heights will definitely be a little bit amazed.
We always enjoy this ride.
This is the smallest in all of the parts but it has one of our favorite rides. It has one ride, one restaurant, and two attractions.
This is one of our favorite rides in the part because it has a travel theme.
There are souvenirs along the waiting line which we get to enjoy.
Here is the carriage that we used to go through the ride.
It took us in all of the mysteries that the traveler went through.
Next is the Grizzly Gultch which is also a small part, it has one ride and two attractions.
This part has a gold rush theme.
Big Grizzly Mountain Runaway Mine Cars
This is one of the best rides in Disneyland.
This is a roller coaster ride with a reverse.
Well, we enjoyed it, so if you want to see this ride too, check out the video below this picture for the POV.

The last part is Adventureland which is Tiki-themed. There is one ride, one theater, two restaurants, and three attractions.
Jungle River Cruise
This is a chill river cruise that has an English-speaking guide.
We saw awesome attractions like this baby Elephant which looks real!
Here are some Hippotamous too.
Tarzan’s Tree House
This is an attraction in the middle of the lake which you need to use a bridge to get here.
Soon to Open
On November 20, 2023, the World of Frozen will open.
Aside from the different parts of the part, there are more attractions in the park.
This is one of the most awaited attractions in the park, which is held every closing time of the park.
This is a 20-minute lights and fireworks show that features Disney characters and songs. We love it because it’s like a childhood flashback.
TIP: After Momentous, there is a huge crowd going out of the park. So, it is better to stay inside first and let the bulk of the crowd go out. You can shop in the stores to pass the time or take pictures at the castle because there are almost no people around the castle at this time. Lastly, if you are taking the train, don’t go directly to the city. Instead, you can go to Sunnybay station, then to Tung Chung station, then the city. In this way, you can sit comfortably on the train.
Festival of The Lion King
There are numerous shows in the park too, the schedules are posted in the app so you can see the show. This one is the Festival of The Lion King which we watched after we went on the Jungle River Cruise ride.
We loved the show, first because the theater looked incredible, it has a circle layout (which made us think we were in a circus). Then, the props, costumes, talent, and lighting are all excellent!
Even though we are a little bit far from the stage (we are actually in the middle), it is alright.
Just look at this giant Elephant! There are a lot of giant animal structures during the show, Elephant, Giraffe, Simba, and Timon and Pumba.
Mickey and the Wonderous Book
The other show that we watched was the Mickey and the Wondrous Book show at the Storybook Theater in Fantasyland.
Just like The Lion King, this is an excellent show too! It shows Mickey and Olaf’s adventure while browsing through the storybook pages. The show is in Chinese, but there is an English translation on the side of the stage, just like a subtitle.
They showed all of our favorite Disney princesses and characters like Ariel from The Little Mermaid…
Elsa from Frozen…
Rapunzel from Tangled…
and Merida from Brave.
Summer Time Parade
We actually forgot the title of this parade, but we shall call it the Summer Time Parade since they have a summer-themed parade.
Each parade is different depending on the season, so this summertime parade, casts have water guns and try to wet the audience.
TIP: If you want to take pictures or videos, go in front of the castle (facing back from the castle), not on the other side (like we are). The sun sets at the back of the castle so if you are standing at the other side of the castle, your show may be a little bit off due to the sun.
Of course, it also showed different Disney characters like Elastigirl…
and a lot more like Bailey from Onward, and Mr. Carl Fredrickson from Up.
There are a lot of shopping stores in the park which have different merchandise depending on the location. Just like this one, this is Andy’s toy box from Toy Story Land, it sells Toy Story merchandise.
This one is from the Tomorrow Land area, so it has all futuristic merch.
We tried on a few items and bought some too.
There are either one or two comfort rooms in each part of the park.
TIP: There are water fountains near comfort rooms too so you can just bring your water jug and fill it while in the park. It will save you money so you can buy more merchandise haha.
There are a lot of dining options in the park, either the cart or a restaurant. TIP: It is better if you buy food vouchers from Klook to save money and make your payment options easier. You can get yours through Klook (click the picture below). Also, use the code HAPPYANDBUSYTRAVELS before checking out to get 5% off in Klook.
This is the Banquet Hall where we had our lunch. Each restaurant is themed to their location too.
I loved my lunch, I had a Baked Porkchop with rice combo which included soft drinks. This is actually a lot for me, so I gave the other half to Busy. This also tasted good!
For a snack, we had ice cream. We got this for free because we had the Klook meal voucher.
We had our dinner at Comet Cafe because it is the nearest restaurant to Momentous.
This is Busy’s dinner, Braised Sliced Beef with Scrambled Egg with Rice Combo. Busy eats a lot so this is just right for him.
That’s all that we can share during our Hong Kong Disneyland experience. We hope this helped you with your trip. Enjoy!
