We planned to do Disneyland on the first day so that we’ll have a lot of energy and catch the fireworks since we’re staying in the Disneyland Resort. Well, it was what we planned but it didn’t happen that way! Z was so amazed, stressed, distracted that he always wanted to go under the nursing cover and sleep! And because the weather was a bit erratic, we felt moist and hot at the same time that we decided to go back to the hotel even before the fireworks started. So much for planning, huh? (good thing I wasn’t on a total OC mode then. You can never be OC with schedules when with a baby. A lesson learned months ago!)
At least my goal of Z meeting the famous mouse happened! Look at the happiness on his face:
I know he wouldn’t remember a thing about this trip but this picture says it all. My heart melted.
Oh, he got to ride “It’s A Small World”! He didn’t know where to look at! Too much visual stimulation for the wee one.
As usual, there are lessons learned after this experience:
- Expect rains even when the weather report tells otherwise. Be prepared for the little ones’ articles of clothing and rain equipment.
- Download the HK Disneyland app to help facilitate in looking for changing rooms, toilets and restaurants where you can sit and nurse. We find the people there not so friendly.
- Don’t scrimp on pictures! The print-outs can be costly but they are nice souvenirs to show the baby when he grows up. The 8×10 print-out with borders and add-ons cost HK$ 130.
I can’t wait to go back to Disneyland when Z can go on rides! I know he’ll love it there!
