The other perk about staying in the Disneyland Hotel is the special breakfast in their Enchanted Garden Restaurant. The Disney characters will come over to your table, say hello and you can take photos of them!
At the last day, Jayden was not feeling too good already. We figured that it could probably be due to the foggy atmosphere for the past few days that we went up to higher altitudes. He had a slight nose and his cough is getting more frequent. He was also running a slight fever when we put him to sleep the previous night. So our plan was actually to let him have his good sleep while we enjoy our breakfast. We carefully moved him from the bed to the stroller taking care not to wake him up.
The food here is not bad at all. It is more like an international breakfast buffet with lots of bread, cereals, waffles together with asian local cusines like pratas, porridge, fried noodles and buns.
With a rather loud and noisy group just beside our table, Jayden was roused from his sleep. Notice that he was not wearing shoes? We really did not want to wake him up so he was also in his PJs.
Sleepy face Jayden! Mickey's friends also come along to take photos with us!
We also went over to the garden just outside of the restaurant to take a photo at this nice heart shaped arch. Too bad we did not have time to walk around the garden a bit to check it out.
By the way, for Hong Kong Disneyland, you are ok if you did not bring your strollers along. They offer rental for strollers and the strollers are pretty well built and has a big basket below. In all attractions, you will have to park the stroller outside of the place and carry the baby/kid inside. No strollers are allowed anywhere.
And this is a new part of the park that is just opened. The Toy Story Land. It is actually a rather smallish extension to the Disneyland park.
We actually got Jayden on this ride but I will not recommend this to such a young toddler. Although it looks slow from the outside, it is really quite fast, at least what I think for little toddlers. Jayden was not bothered by it though. He was like Mr Bean sitting and looking blankly while the dog goes round and round.
This ride, The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh was next. Again, we can use the Star Pass for this ride and we were up right in front. This ride is quite nice. It is a slow moving ride, basically moving you through different parts of it telling you a story. And the next part of our trip back to Disneyland was quite interesting. It's the photo sessions with all the Disney Characters.
Not sure where our little Jayden learnt this. But he kept sticking out his tongue when we ask him to pose for photos!
And he gives his favorite character a big hug!
We also took a photo of Pinocchio though we are not really fans of it and totally skipped Goofy here and Minnie Mouse. Looking back, I realized we have no Minnie Mouse taken with us at all!
Jayden does his tongue thingy again.
We head on to the small world for a ride there. This is another ride that has no height restrictions and thus, no issue for the little ones. It is a slow ride in showcasing many different dolls for different parts of the world.
I like this castle quite a bit. I was secretly wishing that we could enter the castle premises, but alas, it is just a building that looks nice from the outside and empty on the inside.
So that's it! We are finished with the second day of the Disneyland trip and were back to the airport for our flight back to Singapore.
We certainly had fun in Hong Kong and will not hesitate to recommend anyone with babies to go there! Disneyland is a nice place to go to and even for us, without taking the rides, we took almost two full days to complete the park in a nice, not too rush manner. One day is certainly not enough if you want to enjoy your time there. Our flight back with Jayden was a little more tiring than the flight coming since he was up and not sleeping throughout the entire flight. But it was still quite ok.
Time to plan for the next trip!
