Hong Kong Trip Day 4

Day 4!

In case you're not up-to-date with what's been going on thus far, here you go: Day 1, Day 2 and Day 3.

Woke up on day 4 to find the sun is shining bright, the sky is clear as day.. PERFECT! We got ready excitedly without forgetting the most important meal of the day, breakfast!

We're supposed to return back to Jakarta today but, after managing to pull a string here and there, we get to extend our stay in Hong Kong! Yeah! Super excited!

Breakfast, check. Shower, check. Packed all of Baby A's needs, check. We're ready to conquer Disneyland once again! The three of us (my parents stay behind to enjoy the spa treatment back at the hotel) took the shuttle bus to the park, by the way, we got the two-day entry ticket. And word of advice, better buy the ticket at the hotel or online in advance to avoid queuing at the park's ticket booth which can take too much of your time.

So anyway. Here we are. Our second round to the Hong Kong Disneyland. Though the sun was scorching, we didn't mind one bit. It was a bit better than when it pouring rain all day. So we're very excited.

We had to start from Tomorrowland. We did the Buzz Lightyear Astro Blaster ride which was super fun. Though he didn't react much, I can tell Baby A was also excited to get in on the action shooting all those pesky aliens. Afterwards, Baby A played a bit at this area (I forgot what it's called) where little kids can get down and literary wet from the water shooting from the ground. He was ecstatic watching other kids got sprayed with water.

Between taking pictures and trying to score some points, this is all that I managed to get.

After lunch, the husband wanted to take Baby A to ride Autopia, but since it was super hot out, I told him let's wait a while until around 3-ish (mentally noting that it won't be so hot then). So we headed to Adventureland where we did the Jungle Cruise ride.

Since the sun wasn't so hot, we decided to went back to Tomorrowland to ride the Autopia (finally). Halfway into the queue Baby A fell asleep. I guess he got tired from the excitement. And besides, it was his nap time. Oh well, we were hoping he'll woke up soon as we're about to ride the car. However, the day turned bad. The sky was heavily cloudy, I'm sensing a rain about to come. Boy, was I right. Suddenly there was a loud thunder and all of a sudden a PSA was heard through the loud speaker stating that since there's a thunderstorm warning all outdoor attractions/rides will be closed! We had to leave the premise and find shelter. Bummer! We were so close! So we met up with my parents at the Corner's Cafe while Baby A still sound asleep. Then it started to rain. At exactly 3.35pm (as we're expecting to see a parade), another PSA was heard stating that due to bad weather, the parade will be changed into Disney Rainy Day Special.

The Disney Rainy Day Special. Awesome vehicle.

Once Baby A finally woke up, we decided to just took a stroll under the rain through Main Street doing some last minute shopping of Disney's knick-knacks. We end the day by having dinner at the hotel's restaurant. It has been a great two rounds of Disneyland despite the bad weather. I guess for me, rain or not, nothing can 'rain on my parade' when it comes to a Disney trip!

This may be the end of our Hong Kong Disneyland trip, but wait, more stories to come on our awesome Hong Kong vacation! Stay tuned for more!!
