Hong Kong Disneyland July 10, 2008Posted by asianpixmen in Activities, Hong Kong, People, Places.
There were three things that I remember well about Hong Kong Disneyland. The first was these four young gentlemen singing in harmony to passers-by on one of the many colourful streets of Disney town.
They called themselves the Dapper Dancers. Dapper, indeed, they were. And they sang very well, too. Quite entertaining, I might add.
The second was this young, energetic group of youngsters who form the High School Musical show. The wonderful thing was that they move from the stage and spill onto the streets as they sang and danced their way through the huge crowd.
Only at Disneyland on Lantau Island, Hong Kong, can you find such show pieces.
The third pleasant surprise was the river boat journey through a man-made forest filled with wild animals and crocodiles and even a live volcano.
What made the water expedition memorable was our boatman who was naturally a Hong Kong Chinese guy who spoke broken English. His fragmented English and acute sense of humour made him quite charming.
We all laughed at his jokes which he probably repeated about 25 times throughout the day to different groups who boarded his boat.
My conclusion: Disneyland is for everybody, regardless of age. Try it before your knees give way.
