Hong Kong Disneyland Day 3 of 4
So our goal today was to see Frozen in the Frozen Experience. The days before, we noticed that the show passes for the experience would book out early in the day. And that the stand-by queue would be for shows further in the day. Knowing we didn't want to waste our day in just one line, we decided that we would get to the Park as early as we can, so we can nab a show pass for Frozen.
Walking towards the entrance to Hong Kong Disneyland
It doesn't look too bad/
Oops, I spoke too soon. Not only were there a lot of Guests waiting to get in, it was also hot and humid.
Have my ticket and made it inside.
I saw a number of people dash down Main Street and to the left towards Adventureland
We run and are greeted with this!
A long line, which would turn out to be for the "stand-by" queue for the shows.
A Hong Kong Disneyland Cast Member is telling Guests about their options of either standing in the Stand-By or to stand in line for a Show Pass.
We decide for the Show Pass.
That line is the line forming along the trees in the background
We get in line, which is near the Big Grizzly Mountain Runaways Mine Cars attraction.
Looking back, the line goes further down.
Hong Kong Disneyland Cast Members are telling us, that we would probably get a show pass for a show between 6 pm. and 7 pm.
The female Cast Member you see on the right is telling Guests that there are no more Show Passes to hand out. She is about to for an "X" with her hands to tell Guests that the Show Passes are booked for the day.
How do they know?
Well, a Cast Member is going up the line, asking how many show passes each group will be needing, all the while, using a counter.
After a while, my friend and I decide not to do the Frozen Experience. And that we will wait till Monday (in 2 days) to do it.
The end of the line stretches almost to the entrance of Big Grizzly Mountain Runaway Mine Cars
Mystic Point is very desolate
Toy Story Land looks to be quite empty
We finally get to do a ride we have been wanting to do, the Toy Soldier Parachute Drop
Oh, this is just like Jumpin' Jellyfish at Disney California Adventure. ... but it looks like it goes higher
Six Guests per parachute
Whoa! That looks high
Guests seem to enjoy it.
This ride does go higher than Jumpin' Jellyfish at Disney California Adventure.
I did get nervous as to how high we went that I was holding onto the bar really tight.
Further down we see RC Racer.
I really love this ride.
It's so much fun
It's all in the details

Snacks inside Grizzly Gulch
This monkey symbol is also found on the music box that Albert can't seem to get his hands off of.
Pixie Hollow, Hong Kong Disneyland style
Riding on "it's a small world"
The Genie is in the lamp
I keep thinking that America is the last room, cause I'm so use to California's version.
But nope, it continues on.
An ol' cousin of mine
When we got off the ride and outside, the clock tower was going off
We decide to head back to Disney's Hollywood Hotel
90% of the time we always walked to and from the Park
We walk down the the quiet walkway, heading towards the Ferry Boat docs and to the Hotel of Hong Kong Disneyland
So where we are at the moment is if you were to go under the arch and continue straight, you would end of at Hong Kong Disneyland.
To the left is the walkway back to either the Hong Kong Disneyland Hotel or Disney's Hollywood Hotel
To the right, is nothing, it just curves
If we turn 180º ....
This is what we see.
The practically unused Ferry Boat dock
Other than automobiles and trains, ferry boats were to be another means of transportation to and from Hong Kong Disneyland
Sadly, since 2005, there have been no ferry boat services
Looking towards Hong Kong
Up ahead at the Ferry Pier sign, we can actually walk along the backside of the Hotels if we make a left.
Knowing that construction is taking place for the latest Hong Kong Disneyland hotel, the Explorers Lodge, we walk along the backside to catch a glimpse
We thought we could get to Disney's Hollywood Hotel by using the back road.
But with all the construction taking place right up along side it for the new hotel, what looks like could have been an entrance for us was closed and blocked.
So we had to back track.
As we walk along the street back to our hotel, there is a section that isn't blocked by tarps.
We investigate our hotel and noticed that if we go all the way down the hall, the window looks out at the construction site.
That will conclude today's Hong Kong Disneyland pictorial
Thanks for stopping by and checking it out.
