You know you've been in Hong Kong for a while when...

...a class excursion to the local dairy factory pales in comparison with a field trip to ...DISNEYLAND!

Yes, that's right. Keegan's Grade One class had an excursion to Hong Kong Disneyland today. They spent several hours learning about art and animation and the history of Disney, so it wasn't just a free-for-all roller coaster extravaganza all day. It was also a wonderful integration opportunity, so I brought three of my Bridges students on the excursion. When they were safely delivered to their carers at the end of the day, Keegan and I were able to enjoy some rides and shows together.

Here are Keegan and classmate Cyrus in front of the Sleeping Beauty castle.

Did anyone notice the number five on the castle photos above? This year marks the 5th anniversary of Hong Kong Disneyland, and the park has eight new Disney character figurines with the following corresponding "lucky" symbols:



Five Fortunes

Love / Romance

Family / Harmony


Success in Studies

and Happiness

Bowen and Flynn will completely understand that the Buzz Lightyear Asto Blasters ride remains Keegan's favourite thing to do at Disneyland.

I agreed to doing the Buzz ride three times if we could at least see the Golden Mickeys show.

Did you hear about the pirate who went to an Apple store? He wanted an aye pad.

It's a Small World

Jungle River Cruise

We stayed until the 4:00 parade because this "Flights of Fantasy" one was different from the previous parades we saw in May and June last year.
