My Hong Kong Disneyland Experience Day 2

Enchanted Garden- Mickey Mouse
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day and the best place to have it is at Enchanted Garden in Hong Kong Disneyland Hotel.

When you dine here you get to meet the Disney characters as they go around the dining area and you can have your picture taken with them.

The restaurant was bright and had a very nice ambiance.

The breakfast buffet cost a reasonable HK$278 per head considering the vast amount of food choices available. There was a hot noodle soup station, egg station, congee, dim sum, Indian specialties, cereal, bread, cheese and so much more.

For almost a year I’ve been eating only low fat yogurt and fruit for breakfast. This was my first breakfast cheat ever and it was well worth it. The bbq pork pastry, vegetable dumpling and pan fried turnip cake were among the best dim sum I’ve ever eaten in Hong Kong. The quality was really top notch.

Bircher muesli is one of my favorite breakfast food and their version is absolutely divine. I’ve never had bircher muesli with so many different kinds of seeds and sweet raspberries and blueberries. The fig compote added even more texture and flavor to the already perfect muesli. If I wasn’t already too full I would have eaten another bowl.

My friend Elizabeth was raving about how perfectly chilled the fruits were so I had to try some. She was right and it was the sweetest melons I’ve eaten in a long time.

As soon as we arrived in Disneyland we saw the train arrive so we made a run for it and caught a ride to Fantasyland where we started our second day.

Our first ride was The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh. I couldn’t believe how long the line was and most of them were adults. Thankfully we had a fastpass and it cut our waiting time drastically.

I didn’t know what to expect in this ride and it turned out to be quite an enjoyable ride as we follow Winnie the Pooh’s search for “hunny.”

Next was the 3D or should I say 4D movie experience. I loved how the food and characters seem to jump at you. But what surprised and delighted me more was the occasional spray of water directed at my face and the delicious smell that wafted in the theater whenever food came out on screen. This was one of my favorite shows.

Each area in the park has it’s own colorful and specially themed restaurant.

TOMORROWLAND
Tomorrowland - Space Mountain

I loved Space Mountain!!! The first time I rode it was when I was 12 years old in Los Angeles Disneyland. It was just as thrilling as I remembered it.

The Buzz Lightyear Astro Blasters was an interactive ride that put you in the middle of a video game. You can control your car’s direction with a joystick and use the gun to shoot specific targets. Your score shows up on the console

It was way fun! I had a car all to myself and used both guns to shoot as many targets as I can.

Orbitron was another ride that you can control yourself. I was wondering why our car was the only one not going up and down. That was when Elizabeth told me I had to use the control lever in front to move our car up and down. Amazing!

Another show I enjoyed very much was The Stitch Encounter. Even though I haven’t watched the movie Lilo and Stitch I was simply amazed how the animated character on screen spoke and interacted with the audience. I don’t know how they managed to make the character move and speak in sync to the improvised and unscripted repartee between Stitch and the audience. It’s one show you should not miss!!!

We went back to Fantasyland to take more pictures. Everything looked different at night. The lighting in Disneyland was dramatic and created a different feeling when walking around the park. You really have to experience both daytime and nighttime Disneyland.

I bought this super cute Mickey and Minnie mug so I will remember my fabulous trip to Hong Kong Disneyland every time I drink coffee or tea.

Goodbye Disneyland. I had a really, really great time.

For dinner we went back to Hong Kong Disneyland Hotel and ate at the classy Walt’s Cafe.

My red martini was made of vodka, raspberry, strawberry, cranberry and mango juices. All I can say is more vodka please? 😀

I’ve never had crusty bread that looked like a popover. The presentation was really unique.

I wasn’t sure whether to order this salad based on the name. It sounded like a heavy salad. It turned out to be much better than I expected. The chicken breast roulade stuffed with crab meat was sublime. I loved the light vinaigrette on the salad greens specially when combined with the pesto and fruits.

Elizabeth had the cobb salad which again was presented beautifully.

I had the miso cod fish. It was thick and well cooked. I adored the flavor of the miso marinade and didn’t even bother with the beurre blanc. It didn’t need any sauce at all.

Our next main course was this magnificent grilled seafood platter for two which had lobster, crab legs, salmon, cod, scallops and squid. I was already too, too full after my salad and fish so I just tried a little of each. Delicious!!!

It was a good thing the dessert took a while to come out or I couldn’t have eaten it. But then I’m never too full for dessert. The almond apple tart had a strong rosemary flavor that seemed strange in the beginning. We weren’t used to an herb usually used for lamb or beef to be used with a sweet dessert. The creme brûlée ice cream was really good.

I cannot say it enough. The food at Hong Kong Disneyland Hotel rocks!!! From the Chinese food at Crystal Lotus to the heavenly breakfast buffet at Enchanted Garden and fresh seafood at Walt’s Cafe, the excellent food is just one of the many reasons to stay at this hotel. If not for all the walking at Disneyland I would easily have gained 5 lbs.

Thank you again to Cebu Pacific and Hong Kong Disneyland for the fantastic and super duper fun weekend where I released my inner kid again. I never imagined I would enjoy Disneyland so much. There’s really more to eating and shopping in Hong Kong. There’s Disneyland.
