Disneyland Hong Kong is a smaller Disney park and seems to be geared more towards younger children. It was heavy on characters and light on roller coasters. But it did have Space Mountain in Tomorrowland, so we spent a large amount of time in this land!
Tomorrowland in HK looked very similar to Tomorrowland at WDW. It was so familiar that I just loved being there!!
Scott and Taelyn immediately ran to check out the line situation for Space Mountain. They had intended on getting fast passes (still using the paper fp system in HK), but realized that there was no wait so they just jumped right on! The rest of us stood in a short line to meet Buzz Lightyear! Hollyn was quite scared of him. She wouldn’t walk up to him by herself. She was okay taking a picture as long as I was holding her, but she never took her eyes off of him!
After meeting Buzz Lightyear, the character, we rode Buzz Lightyear Astro Blasters since it was right next door and there was no wait.
Hollyn loved spinning the car while Lillian and I shot the guns!
As soon as we were finished with the ride, Scott and Taelyn were about to walk on, so we went again with them. It was so nice not having any wait times and being able to ride several times in a row if you wanted. Although, at times, I had to pull the kids away from rides so that we could make sure and do everything!!
We rode the Orbitron a few times and this was one of Holly’s favorites!!
We met Stitch, who you may remember me describing as Lillian’s kindred spirit.
We rode Autopia, and Lillian got to drive!! I had to press the pedal for her, though. I had a severe case of whiplash when we got off of this ride!
Nid’s first time “driving” a car! I loved that when we were in line for this ride a cast member asked everyone as they came through, “Do you know how to drive a car,” and if you didn’t (which is so common here!!) they would explain the pedals to you!
Taelyn did well driving her vehicle!
With the exception of Hollyn, every single person in our group was able to ride Space Mountain! Nid did not like it at all, but everyone else loved it!!
This big girl’s first ride on Space Mountain!!
Unlike WDW, this Space Mountain had a double-rider seat, so Lillian didn’t have to sit by herself when she rode! Since we’ve been back, she’s been telling everyone, “Mommy screamed like this on Space Mountain – AHHHHHHHHHHHHH!”
Tomorrowland had the talking, moving trash can! Lemon loved watching this guy move around, but she definitely didn’t want him close to her!
There was a fun, interactive playground called UFO Zone. The times that Nid didn’t want to go on a ride, she would let Hollyn and Lemon play there while they waited on the rest of us.
The only attraction that we didn’t make it to in Tomorrowland was Stitch Encounter. This was an interactive show similar to Turtle Talk with Crush in WDW. They had shows in English and Cantonese, and we were never around at a good time to attend an English show. I’m sad we missed it.
We ate a quick-service lunch one day at Starliner Diner. They had a good selection of Western and Asian choices.
Hollyn really liked the corn!
Living in Asia, we eat rice… a lot. I get tired of it pretty often, but I think if it was always shaped like Mickey, I’d probably love it a lot more! On this day, half of us got burgers and half of us got this chicken and rice. They were both good.
The Starliner Diner has free wifi, so several times we found ourselves parked at a table in front of the restaurant as we waited on the rest of our group to join us! If you saw any of my social media posts while we were gone, chances are good I was posting from this spot!
One day while Nid and I were sitting in front of the diner catching up on our phones, these guys stopped by and put on an entertaining show for us.
They had Star Wars themed eggs in Tomorrowland!
We had such a great couple of days exploring Tomorrowland!! The favorites among the big kids was Space Mountain and the favorite among the little kids was Buzz Lightyear Astro Blasters.
Thanks for following along on our journey!
