My favourite thing about Disneyland is that they allow us to take photos everywhere. And I do mean everywhere, even in the shops!
That’s so awesome. I love Disney shops. I think I spent 50% of my time in Disneyland shopping!
I also love that the Disney staff are all so friendly and polite. It’s like every guest is made to feel very loved and special!
Minou told me that the last time she visited Hong Kong Disneyland, she spent like S$400 in the Disney shops alone. I can believe her when I see it for myself! There’s so much awesome, cute stuff to gawk at and buy. Even the Goonfather enjoyed shopping in there! Hehe.
This time round, our damage is about S$500. EACH. Well, me and Minou. The Goonfather and Elyxia spent less.
Even after all these, I still feel like there’s so much more I need to buy!
It was actually fortunate that I fell sick and was bedridden for half my trip in Disneyland. If not, I would have ended up buying a lot more. Haha. Most of them will be given away as gifts, though.
Here’s a closer look at some of the cuter stuff:
This chio watch grabbed us right away. Three of us girls ended up buying the same watch! Haha. It comes in a pretty tin box.
Pretty cookie tins. Inside are pink heart-shaped cookies!!
Bought two of these mini tiaras for my little nieces:
Erm… dim sum key chains:
I have no idea what I’m gonna do with them. Just couldn’t resist them. :(
Love love love this necklace:
Elyxia also bought one! It’s soooo cute~!
A biggish Stitch keychain/charm/dangly thing:
Has a pair of angel wings behind him!! AWww.
Mickey Mouse padlock and key!
Bought this Stitch hair tie on my first day there and tied my hair with it the next day! =P
Even though it didn’t really match my outfit cos my skin and socks were black and pink.
Mickey Mouse ice cream:
Mickey Mouse key danglies:
And and and…! My favourite favourite thing from Disneyland… Scrump!
I wasn’t even a Scrump fan until I saw this. Just love this one cos of the raggedy woolly feel of it. The Goonfather bought it for me! =D
There are basically Disney stores everywhere (in the Disney hotels and in Disneyland itself), even at Hong Kong International Airport, so I was shopping all the way till we went home. Haha.
Besides the shopping, I also love eating at the restaurants.
At Disney’s Hollywood Hotel is Chef Mickey, which serves an enormous buffet dinner that has all kinds of cuisines — Western, Chinese, Japanese, Indian, I don’t remember what else!
Much of the decor has Mickey shapes, which was a delight to find!
A lot of the food is Mickey shaped, too. Mostly the desserts!
Before I even started eating, I was taking photographs of all the Mickey desserts cos they looked so appealing!
Wanted to photograph this before more slices got taken out:
Mickey croutons in soup:
Oh, and does the dinner plate remind you of anything?
There’s also an ice-cream corner:
Which my friends had a lot of fun with while I was busy eating.
They filled the cone up with M&Ms first. O_o
And then didn’t do a very good job of shaping the ice-cream. :P
And then the Goonfather stuck a Mickey crouton on it. -_-”
And this is how four people share an ice-cream cone:
Haha. Unearthed the treasures inside:
Dinner was fabulous! Most items were delicious and by the time I was full, there were still many dishes I wanted to try but had no more room to try. Argh.
Okay, too many photos in this entry already. More coming up in Part 3! =P
