After another lazy sea day I was excited to get to our next port, Hong Kong! We took the Star Ferry across Victoria Harbor and took pictures on the top deck. The skyline there is amazing. We then took the bus up to Victoria Peak. I was amazed at the 90 degree incline up the mountain. It was a really really foggy day, so we really didn't get to see much from the top. I did find Burger King up there though, so I was excited. After a week of only Asian food, I was ready to have some American junk food. After exploring the top of the Peak a little while, we took the bus down to Central.
The next morning mom and I woke up early and took the subway to Disneyland. The HK subway system is stellar. You push the stop that you want to visit and it tells you how much in English. It was incredibly easy to use and so clean. NY needs to follow suit! We transfered over to the Disney train which was adorable. It had Mickey Mouse windows, statues of the characters in the subway, handrails shaped like Mickey ears etc. They made the experience very magical. When we got to Disney there was a lot of overcast. We had an hour before the park even opened to wonder around and take pictures. I was surprised that the ticket was only $50. Disney in the US is closer to $100 I believe. When the park opened its gates we waited in line to get pictures with Mickey & Minnie, Goofy & Pluto and Chip and Dale.
