Hello All! In part 2 I will share Ida’s thoughts on the parks and rides.
Shanghai Disneyland had a number of the same and some different rides then our beloved Disney World. The technology as she was very plussed up. Tomorrowland, Ida said felt like Epcot. Adventure Isle is actually like Animal Kingdom. She said they could build another park there with the room they have. Sounds familiar doesn’t it?
Winnie the Pooh was the same as Disney World. Tron was so amazing, they rode it 3 times. But, that 3rd time they were evacuated & said it was well worth it. The Tea Cup ride was honey pots. Pirates was so good they rode that one 6 times. Peter Pan is also plussed up & different. Seven Dwarfs was very similar. There was a Soarn’ Around the World. Ida said there was a Pirates Stage show & it was so cool. Jack Sparrow speaks too. The Launch Bay was a character meet and greet. Ida participated in a 6 hour tour that took them on all the rides. There was a discount on merchandise as well. The Jungle Cruise was in 3 languages. The train station was just that no train. The Castle inside & outside was phenomenal, they incorporated all the princesses. Fantasmic was fabulous according to Ida.
Hong Kong Disneyland
Small World was phenomenal. Iron Man was very cute. The Castle was smaller then others. The Fireworks were great. Paint the night parade was wonderful. She felt there was more English speaking in Hong Kong Disneyland.
I asked Ida if she would go back, maybe in about 5 years. This was a trip of a Lifetime. Next she would like to go to Disneyland Tokyo.
Please keep in mind that security was tight in both parks.
I want to thank Ida Williamson for doing this trip report interview with me. She is one of my dear Disney Family Friends and I loved living this trip through her!
Until next time have a very Magical Day.
