One of my travel bucket lists is to visit all 6 Disneylands around the World!
Hong Kong Disneyland is by far the second Disneyland I had visited, after Disneyland Paris in 2015. It may not be the biggest and best Disneyland but there is still Mickey and Mini, princesses, and lots of magic! In my honest opinion, it is a vastly underrated park. The park houses unique rides and experiences that any Disney fans (and non-Disney fans) would enjoy!
Here’s a list of my top 8 attractions and I would highly recommend that you shouldn’t miss them!
#1 Mystic Manor
Mystic Point is the latest addition to Hong Kong Disneyland and is exclusive to only Hong Kong. Based on a theme of supernatural activities, Mystic Point features a journey into illusion, and magic. I had the same overwhelming magical feeling like I had with Ratatouille in Disneyland Paris. This is the one ride you should never miss no matter how long the queue is! Trust me, it’s not a scary ghostly ride (even though it’s a dark ride). It’s just….plain mystical.
#2 Big Grizzly Mountain Runaway Mine Cars
Grizzly Gulch takes inspiration of the Old American Wild West mining town forgotten amidst the mountains and woods. It features rock structures, natural geysers, a local jail, and a roller coaster ride: Big Grizzly Mountain Runaway Mine Cars. The ride includes entering into dark mine tunnels and going backwards at high speed.
#3 It’s A Small World
The happiest cruise that ever sailed located in Fantasyland! I am totally in love with this ride even though it meant having the song stuck in my head for days! Only in this magical place, you can travel 7 continents in 10-minutes! It’s a small world after all!
#4 Mickey’s PhilharMagic
This is a 10-minute 3-D concert experience featuring some of the most memorable Disney songs in stunning classical settings. I was totally awed at the end of the show, gratefully that I had walked into this theatre.
#5 RC Racer
The “RC Racer” in Toy Story Land is equivalent as a Viking ship. Thought most of the other rides in this area are cater more to kids but it is still fun for teenagers and adults!
#6 Hyperspace Mountain
Tomorrowland refers to the future and rise of superheroes. Based on the two most loved superhero movies, Tomorrowland features Star Wars and Iron Man experiences. Hyperspace Mountain is based on Star Wars theme which is one of the most popular ride people will rush for. Best thing is, this is one of the 3 rides with free fastpass, so get your fastpass from the machine and come back at allocated time slot for minimal waiting.
#7 Iron Man Experience
Fun Fact: Iron Man Experience is the first Disney attraction based on Marvel. It is a 3-D motion simulator ride which opened recently in 2017. Do note that this attraction has free fastpass as well!
Due to the upgrading works of Sleeping Beauty Castle, there is no fireworks when I visited. However, they do have a night parade showcasing the Disney characters in glowing lights! This is definitely an unique experience of watching a parade.
Of course, don’t overlook all the other rides and Disney characters you can meet at various locations around the park!
