HK Disneyland!!
Not too surprisingly, HK Disney was the thing that Georgie was most looking forward to doing on the trip. What can I say? My girl loves Disney :-)

I'd heard it was small; it is. I'd heard its not as good as the other Disney parks; it isn't. But it definitely has its charms. The biggest con was the weather. Like every day in HK it was just incredibly hot and humid. Florida is hot and humid too, not quite as bad as HK, but its bad. The difference is,... WDW seems to be designed with the heat and humidity in mind. The restaurants and many of the ride lines are inside and air conditioned, there's lots of places to get out of the sun. HK is completely different. There is almost no shade. There are only two eateries with inside seating in the whole park. There are fans that blow above most of the ride lines but they all seemed to be pointed at the sky with no perceptible breeze on the people. Ugh. I looked over at Bobby a few times and it wasn't that he was just sweating... there were literally streams of sweat pouring down his face. It was HOT!

Having said that, we still managed to have a great time! The ride lines were short. The posted wait times would say 55 mins but then we'd only wait 10. It was weird.

Most of the rides are Disney standards: Jungle Cruise, Small World, Pooh, etc. The stand out is definitely Mystic Manor. Awesome, awesome attraction.. we rode it three times! We got there at opening and closed the place down. Wonderful day even with the heat.

This was the best Tink EVER! She was so funny

Toy Story Land was really cute but they should have named it "No Shade Land". So freaking hot.

Mystic Manor. Kind of like Haunted Mansion except not scary. Very cool!

The Small World was good, better than WDW, but not as good as California.

I think by this point in the day we were delirious from the heat.

Georgie made me take this picture like 5 times until I got both the house and the moon to her liking. She had a vision. LOL!
