Case Family in Hong Kong

Disney Recap

Posted in Tantalizing Travel by jpcase01 on January 17, 2009

So, we are now back home from our Disney excursion.  We all had a great time, as you can see from the pictures posted above.  It was a pretty stress-free vacation, actually.  Jason and I questioned whether or not our parents were able to enjoy Disney so much when we went as children….they had to drive 13+ hours to get there….find the hotel where we were staying….commute daily to the park….and the lines were crazy!!!  (Mom and dad, we hope you had fun!!!)  Our experience here in HK was great b/c our transport was train-only (2 hours door to door…and we live on the opposite side of HK from Disney), we stayed at the Disneyland Hotel, and rode their shuttle to and from the park, which was so nice and carefree, and the longest we waited for any ride was around 20 minutes…most waits were 5-10 minutes at most!!!  We would highly recommend this trip for families with young kids.  Ezri has just turned two, and–being a fan of Mickey Mouse Clubhouse–absolutely loved it.  Javi (nearly 17 mo.) is less into the characters and shows on a whole, but still really enjoyed it.  His favorite was the Cinderella Carousel.  He was soooo upset when we got him off of the horse!  And, the only ride in the entire park that a two-year-old cannot ride is space mountain….so that’s pretty family-geared, I’d say.

What else…..Ezri loved meeting the characters…and by the second day of our trip, Javi was recognizing them too—they would both get very excited when the shuttle bus drove up with all the characters’ pictures on the side!  Once, while Jason and the kids were waiting on me to arrive at the shuttle stop, a shuttle left without them and Ezri actually began to cry b/c she thought we’d been left…no chance of getting to DisneyLand!!!  On our last full day at the hotel, we also went for a swim.  We were excited b/c this would be Javi’s first time to swim in a pool!  They had these tiny life jackets, so we suited the kids up.  Javi was freezing…shivering.  He was stiff as a board!  He didn’t hate it, but he is definitely not the fish that Ezri is!  Next time we’ll try a warmer pool, Jav.

All in all, a great trip and time well spent as a family.
