Can you guess who`s in the parade???
After the parade, it`s time to explore the whole area. Because we only have limited time before the park closes, we just ride the most thrilled and must-ride rides. I recommend the Space Mountain in Tomorrowland, the Grizzly Gulch rollercoaster, the Mystic Manor ride, and that amazing, thrilling rollercoaster ride in ToyStory land (GT Racer rollercoaster, I guess. Sorry I forgot.). We also rode some rides recommended for children. Like the "It`s a Small World" ride where you can see dolls ffrom different cultures and country while they are singing the song in their language. By the way, we never had the chance to go to the Jungle River cruise in the Adventureland because from all those waiting times before you can experience the ride, we were out of time and just head on to the Disney in the Stars to be held in the Cinderella castle. This is the fireworks display before closing the park. This can be seen in front of the Cinderella castle. This is the my caught video of the firework with the help of my iPod and trusty #happypod. You can also watch it in my Youtube channel HERE.

Hello! Again, this is your alien blogger writing a post in continuation of her
invasion trip in Hongkong. For the second day, we went to Ngong Ping in the morning, a place in Lantau Island that hosts the Big Buddha, Po Lin Monastery and the Ngong Ping village. We rode by bus from Tung Chung to Ngong Ping for 23HKD or 27HKD (I forgot) and by cable car going back but of course you can use the cable car of going back `n forth.
And head we go to the NP village where all the shops, cafes, and restaurants can be found. We had some souvenir shopping for low, low prizes and had our lunch before heading to our next stop. We had some noodles with dumplings. Of course, if you say Hongkong, you should try to eat dimsum. A definitely thing to do while in Hongkong.
After we fed our hungry tummies, we went ahead to ride the cable car going back to Tung Chung to start our journey towards our next stop... The ride takes 24 minutes from Ngong Ping to the Tung Chung cable car terminal. It`s a 24-minute, 5km ride where you can see the whole Lantau island and Hongkong island from above. It was a fun, thrill ride that every tourist should try in Hongkong. By the way, you can choose between a standard or crystal cabin. The only difference is that the crystal cabin has a glass floor where you can see what`s below. But of course, crystal cabin is much more higher in terms of prize though. For a frugal traveler, we tried the standard cabin. For cable car fares, you can visit their website HERE, as it may change without prior notice.
Leaving you with this "peace" sign if ever I can`t post ASAP where our next stop is. But don`t worry, I will, by any means. Talk to you soon! Leave me your comments or questions!
