Hong Kong Day 2 Part II - “The Happiest Place on Earth” | February 25, 2013

WARNING: This post contains too many photos of err… me (I SWEAR)

Some people say that you didn’t experience childhood if you haven’t watched any Disney movie. I definitely agree with that! I am one of those people whose love for animated movies hasn’t diminished over the years. Even though the characters are just made out of the creative minds of the artists, I still see them as real. :-)

Yeeehaaawww!!! *Jessie (Toy Story)’s voice* I gotta say this is the HIGHLIGHT of our trip because we really enjoyed every second inside the happiest place on earth. Thanks to Disneyland for giving us a fantastic experience.

MAIN STREET USA - This has got to be one of my favorite places in Disneyland. Can they just transform this into a real community? Lol say what?

image

ART OF ANIMATION - I really love this one because it has toooo many awesome stuff inside! I call this the “root” of Disneyland because basically, without animation there will be no Disney. Tourists/visitors will learn more about the Disney animation from past to present.

It has maquettes, sketches, storyboards and background paintings of Disney characters.

This is called ZOETROPE - it features some characters from Toy Story like Woody, Jessie, Wheezy, Bull’s Eye, and the Aliens. It is a device that produces the illusion of movement from a rapid succession of static images on a spinning disk. Here, they used actual 3D figures.

IT’S A SMALL WORLD - Got to see colorful dolls and toys that represent different cultures around the globe while riding an enchanted boat with my siblings.

(Back at the Main Street USA - took a rest after long walks)

ADVENTURELAND - I love how different this place looks like compared with the others. Lion King and Tarzan ~feels~

image

image

We were able to explore the waters of the jungle via jungle river cruise but too bad, we weren’t able to go to Tarzan’s treehouse. :( Next time!!!

TOY STORY LAND - We experienced being shrink to the size of a toy in this place! Woody was bigger than us! It has awesome rides like RC Racer and Toy Soldier Parachute Drop but we weren’t able to ride one.¬† :(

Toy Soldier Parachute Drop

GRIZZLY GULCH - We got to ride its main attraction - Big Grizzly Mountain Runaway Mine Cars!

FANTASYLAND (again)

TOMORROWLAND - We weren’t able to explore this place that much. :(
