As a self-confessed shopaholic, Disney Springs is/was definitely the second happiest place on earth for me, right after the theme parks themselves. Disney Springs is pretty much a shopaholic’s paradise, with over 100 stores including brands like Kate Spade, Anthropologie, Sephora and Uniqlo, not to mention the insane number of dining options for any budget (of course their ‘cheap’ food was still kinda expensive…).


We visited the place on 3 out of the 6 days that we stayed at our hotel, since it was just a 5-minute walk away – we chose our hotel precisely for that reason – and there were also direct shuttles from the theme parks to Disney Springs, making it even more convenient for us to head there after a full day spent at the parks.

{Shanghai-HK} Part 4: Hong Kong Disneyland

Part 1 | Part 2 |Part 3 | Part 4 | Part 5


I’ve been to HK Disneyland 4 times, but I’ll probably never get bored of visiting the ‘Happiest Place on Earth’. Anyway, this post will be pretty short since most of you would’ve been to HK Disney before…and it’s far smaller and less crowded than Shanghai’s Disney so there’s no need for any tips on how to make the most out of your day here; you can easily sit each ride multiple times, since the queue times are non-existent. So let’s jump right in!


You can easily take the metro from any part of HK to Sunny Bay station, and then transfer to a Mickey-themed train on the Disney Resort Line, which brings you to Disneyland directly.


Be sure to plan your trip the day before, so you know what time to set off from your hotel – you don’t want to be late for the park opening!


It’s another 5-minute walk from the station to the park entrance, and there’s many good photo-taking spots even before you enter the park!
