Another year, another Disneyland Hong Kong Christmas. Our kids are always excited at the prospect of spending a day of merriment amongst the festivities out there.
And the kids did enjoy it … kinda, only it was virtually the same parade as last year.
For some reason the decorations in Disneyland were minimalist for 2012 – a little sad and disappointing compared to previous years. The Christmas parade wasn’t anything like what you would get in the US parks – only happening on Main Street and only involving Mickey, Duffy, Minnie, Goofy and Donald with a short burst of fake snow during some of the performance. You kind of wonder why Disney don’t go all out. If you told me there was a massive parade with characters you don’t normally see we would be out there in a shot! (Bring back Lightning Mcqueen!!) Not only that, but Christmas is the one time of year people are most likely to splurge on shopping while they are there.
So there were a few quirky things that were different from last year.
And possibly the best Christmas thing to come to Disneyland Hong Kong EVER …
