Day One - Arrival in Asia and Ocean Park!
We are BACK in Asia! So far the trip has been amazing and it's only DAY ONE!!!! I'm going to make this quick since we've had a really LONG day today.....
First off, we got bumped off our flight...but in a GOOD way, we actually got transferred from our flight that was going to make a stop in South Korea to a direct to Hong Kong flight, which put us in 7 hours early!
Basically that meant we could do Ocean Park today and make the rest of our time in Hong Kong that much more relaxing.
Our flight arrived, we all bought our "pussy cards", got on the train and we were on our way to check into our hotel at Hong Kong Disneyland. We dropped our stuff off, back on the train again to Ocean Park.
The day at Ocean Park was great! Much better than my last visit because I had people to hang out with. They also had tons of Christmas stuff going on including snow tubing!!! Yes!!!!
As for the two coasters there -
Wild West Mine Train - What a great little ride! I really enjoyed this on my previous visit and it was just as good, if not better now.
Dragon - OMG if I thought this was painful before, it's worse now! It's a true "Arrow Classic"
We spent a couple of hours at the park, did some meandering around Hong Kong, then back to Disneyland we went.
Since today's update is going to focus mostly on Ocean Park, I won't say too much about HKDL other than Space Mountain is AWESOME! We were all really blown away. It is MUCH MUCH better than the new, revamped California version. But that's for tomorrow's update. In the meantime, onto some photos and there are also two on-ride videos from the coasters at Ocean Park in the "Members Only" Forum. Check those out here:
