On This Day: Hong Kong Disneyland

On this day in history, Walt Disney 5th park opened September 12, 2005. It over looks the water of Pennys Bay on Lantau Island, Hong Kong. It’s home to Sleeping Beauty Castle which features computerized strobe light system, which creates a sparkling effect that makes the castle look even more magical at night.

There are three locomotives at Hong Kong Disneyland: Walter E. Disney, a tribute to the man himself: Roy O. Disney, a tribute to Walts brother and co-founder of the company and Frank G Wells who was the president of the Walt Disney Company from 1984-1994. It is also home to the largest Adventureland out of all the Magic Kingdom parks in the world.

Forever in my heart.

Friday, September 9, 2017, my family has lost one of the most amazing and kindest soul anyone could meet…Kody was fourteen and a half -year-old Golden Retriever/ Yellow Lab mix. I remember my cousin trying to think of the perfect name for him. Although Kody wasn’t my dogs per-say he was part of our family, but he is now with my mom’s pup Lil Bear and my little man Bambi.

​Losing a pup is never easy, but to get through it you have to think of all the amazing adventures you had with them. We lost Lil Bear back in 2011 and Bambi in 2014 both of old age and it still makes me sad but very blessed to have had them make an imprint on my heart along with Kody. I’m happy that Kody is no longer in pain even though it kills me not to have him here on earth.

RIP Kody, you are and will always be a good boy.

These new generation Mouseketeers will be starting in the new series along with their mentor Todrick Hall. I think Disney is doing a great job appealing to the new generation, which is all about social media. What are your thoughts on this new generation of Mouseketeers?

Disney Did You Know?!

Did you know,

1

Before Walt Disney chose Anaheim, he almost built his park on a 7 acre studio lot in burbank where the park was almost named “Walt Disney’s America.” Disneyland was built on a 160 acre orange grove, displacing  more than 12,000 orange trees. Jack and Bill Evans, the landscapers made up for it though by planting more than 40 species of flowers and 700 exotic trees that grow along the Jungle Cruise alone. The iconic Mickey-head topiary contains 10,000 flowers which are replanted 6 times a year!
