Dear readers of our blog,
This is Nina and I'm going to tell you about our adventure in Disneyland Hong Kong. So same as usual, we got dressed for a day out and we were talking about what we were going to do. My dad said " Are you guys ready to go on an all day hike?!" and we responded, "NNNNOOOOOO!!" Then he responded back and said, "Well then do you want to go to Disneyland?'' and Celeste responded, ''Yes!!!!!!" I was just stunned on what my dad just said so I responded with nothing except a stunned look on my face. Then we went to the subway station and left. It took 30 minutes to get to Disneyland and when we got to where we needed to take the last subway to Disneyland the train inside had Mickey mouse head windows and on the handles too! When we finally got there you had to push your way out and after getting our tickets and waiting in line to get in we finally got in. A guy greeted us and gave us a delicious chocolate gold coin. Finally we headed into Adventure Land and did Tarzan's Treehouse. We walked around then we finally went to a real rollercoaster, not the one where you go upside down but the one where you go super fast and you even go backwards, and that my friends is Big Grizzly Mountian Runaway Mine Cars also known as B.G.M.R.M.C. While we were waiting we were saying how excited we were to be in Disneyland. When we got into the car we started freaking out. I was right next to my dad and Celeste was next to mommy. When you started you had swoops and curves and at one point since you were in a "mine car'' there was dynamite that sent you flying forwards then you got sent back to the begininng. That was such a fun ride. I was shaking because it was so cool. Then we got some popcorn and headed to Toy Story Land. We did Slinky Dog Spin and spun 'round and 'round with Slinky Dog. Then we ate pizza cones for lunch then finally after lunch we went on Toy Soldier Parachute Drop. It was a scary ride where we went up and down, up and down, up and down, up and...........................down. After that we left for Fantasyland! In Fantasyland there wasn't much we wanted to do but we did Madhatters teacups and "It's a small world". In line we had a girl and her dad behind us who were about 5 centimeters from our backs and in front of us a girl about my age and her little sister. The little sister kept looking at us and finally I waved a couple of times. When we got in the teacups Celeste and I went as fast as we could. We ended up going so fast I almost ran into a lady on the way out. Then we went to "It's a Small World" which was only a 15 minute wait! We loved "Its a Small World" and we said it was better than in DisneyWorld. When we got outside mommy wasn't feeling so good so we went to get my treat and a coke for her, but she ended up going to the nurses office. My cotton candy was so fluffy and it was a lot so Celeste and I shared and later Celeste also got ice cream. Then we headed to Tomorrowland. Tomorrowland had Space Mountain. So daddy came with us too. We were walking to line when this guy gave us 2 fastpasses and we said thank you. We headed for that fastpass line. When we got there I started to freak out. When we got in our "spaceship" my heart was racing there was a sign that said there would be times where you would go super fast and take unexcpeted turns and you would have random.....................DROPS. In pitch black where you couldn't see anything you would have random DROPS?! EEK! When we took off you came into this pitch black room and Celeste was literally squeezing my leg because she was so scared and soon it ended. We had fried chicken on the bone and we used gloves while eating it so your hands wouldn't get dirty with germs and fry all over them. Then we went to check on my mom in the nurses office she said she was fine. We had about 20 minuntes until the park closed. We went back to B.G.M.R.M.C We did 2 rides on that then we went to see the fireworks. At first we thought it was a light show on the castle, but then there were fireworks for almost every Disney movie, Alice and Wonderland, Cinderella, and a couple more which I don't remember. Then they ended and there was a big rush to get out of Disneyland because during the fireworks they close everything down and then you have to go back to where you're staying and go to bed. While we waited for daddy to get us tickets there was this girl my age crying because she didn't want to leave. I've had the same experience and I just wanted to go over there and give her a big hug because she looked so sad. When my dad finally got the tickets we headed back to our place. My feet were killing me they hurt so much. When we got back we went straight to bed.
