Since we went straight to Macau from HKIA, I had to look for another way of securing discounted Disneyland tickets other than China Travel Services (CTS). I bought tickets online using www.hotelinhongkong.net for HKD 370 each. For comparison, buying a ticket from park would cost HKD 450. This is also cheaper than the HKD 388 offered by CTS. At first, I thought the website was not working because they did not send an email containing the payment instructions. It turns our that their email was in my Spam folder. After paying the tickets via online purchase, they sent me another email containing the vouchers. When I made my booking, the website asked me to pick a date on when I will use the tickets, but when the voucher arrived, it is valid until the end of the month I picked (around 20 days after my intended date). The vouchers will need to be exchanged to actual tickets on the booths just outside the park.
3-in-1 Meal Coupons
These coupons are NO longer sold in CTS. No need to worry though, they are still sold in the ticket booths. If I remember correctly, they cost HKD 168. If you’re planning to have lunch-snack-and dinner in Disneyland, this is a must. You’ll get 1 lunch coupon, 1 drink or popcorn coupon, and 1 dinner coupon (valid only after 5:30 pm). Meals cost an average of HKD 80, while the drinks are HKD 20.
Grizzly Gulch and Mystic Point
It’s our 2nd time in HK Disneyland so our main priority is to go to atractions we haven’t been before, mainly from Grizzly Gulch and Mystic Point area. The roller coaster in Grizzly Gulch is A-OK, we rode that one 3 times! The Mystic Manor is very elegant from the outside. The ride inside Mystic Manor though is not that spectacular but enjoyable just the same.
There’s no perfect order in navigating Disneyland. We adjusted our Disney itinerary to what we think is convenient. We also didn’t wait for the fireworks because we already saw it the year before plus we were already exhausted because of the hot weather. We left Disneyland after having our dinner at Starliner Diner.
Temple Street Market
We went this market thinking it’s a good place for shopping. I think it depends on what you’re shopping for. You can actually walk from TST to Jordan to Yau Ma Tei by traversing Temple Street. This is what we did but unfortunately we didn’t find anything worth buying. I think I’m better off shopping inside the malls 😀
That’s all for Part 4. Thanks for reading!
