We landed at Shenzhen Airport in the mid morning. Once we arrived in Shenzhen, we took the airport bus to Lou Wu where we could catch the train to Hong Kong. From the runaway to the terminal, we were fetched by a bus. Immigration was fast and we were at Lou Wu in no time. Even though it was December, the temperature was not that cold. I remembered it was about 19 degree celcius at that time. Once at Lou Wu, we bought train tickets to Hong Kong. Beware of the locals who offer you help with the luggage. I thought they were just helping us, well..the truth was, they were asking us for money...so, we did pay them a few RMB. Kasihan jugakkan... after all they carried our heavy luggage up the staircase... I didn't mind paying them actually, but they needed to let us know beforehand.
From Lo Wu, we took MTR Island Line to Disneyland. We had a few transits as the journey was actually from one end to the other end. Unless u are coming from HK airport, journey to HK Disneyland is much shorter. We had to change train a few times until we reached Sunny Bay where we could catch the MRT to Disneyland. If u plan to stay longer at Hong Kong, i suggest u to purchase octopus Card. It's like a touch n go card for public transport. It took us almost an hour to reach Sunny Bay. The MRT to Disneyland is very special. It has cartoon character figurines inside the train. The windows are also mickey mouse like. The wall is also about Disney characters. All in all, everything in the train relates to Disneyland. My kids were already so fascinated with the MRT. Dah la mereka memang jakun naik MRT/LRT, naik pulak MRT yang full of characters, such as this one...memang la kejakunannya terserlah.

The 1st time we saw the hotel.....Waaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh....!!! Bestnyerrrr...Wait till u go into the room... We always travel cheap. So, when we got to stay at a hotel as nice as this one, hmmm.... we didn't really know what to say...he...he..he...

on the grass.
|Disney Hollywood Hotel Merchandise shop. It was December, so Christmas|
spirit was in the air.
They have large pool and Malibu Toy House for the kids. The only drawback is they do not have halal eating outlet nearby. Either u bring food from home or you can just take the MRT to Jordan or Tsim Sha Tsui. There are a lot of halal eating outlets there.

P/s: Mind the quality of the photos. They were captured from my hp and also my camcorder. The minute we landed at Shenzhen Airport, the camera went hay wired [sigh...]
