“As the plane was about to land, I was nervous. I couldn’t see the runway. All that was visible was the blue ocean. The plane kept lowering towards the ground and yet there was still no runway to be seen. I looked around the plane and nobody else seemed to share my apprehension. I am not afraid to fly, quite the opposite, I actually really like flying; even during heavy turbulence, I rarely get nervous. It’s all a part of flying and if you want to get anywhere fun, you have to fly. But still, on this flight, I was nervous. I just didn’t know where we were going to land.”

“Hong Kong Disneyland opened on September 12, 2005. When it first opened, it was literally ‘a half day park’ with very few lands to explore and attractions to enjoy. Moreover, Hong Kong Disneyland offered very little in terms of original concepts with the majority of attractions being copies or slight variations of existing attractions in other Disney parks. Thus, the reputation that followed Hong Kong Disneyland was that it was not a must-see, must-do experience, rather a place to visit if you were passing by, not somewhere you’d go out of your way to see.”

“This book goes into great detail describing and exploring the many lands, attractions, dining locations and events that Hong Kong Disneyland has to offer. But, instead of describing them in a monotonous fashion, it is an allegorical tale, filled with anecdotes and accounts of not only the attractions and shows, but my experiences with the physical elements of the park and the culture and atmosphere surrounding the happiest place in Hong Kong, too.”
