Paging @prettybarbie- 😊 yup, I reserved bfast w the rooms though Ang registered Ko ay 5 adults and my 3 kids aged 8, 7 & 4. Sneak in Ko yung 4th kid Ko who is 2yo. Easy Lang sa room but how kaya sa bfast? No charge nga but could they be strict kaya at the resto (or do I say additional?) haha. No experience w sneak ins at all.

Mga sis di ba mas mahigpit ang IO pag alone aalis? Meet kasi kami ng Australian bf ko dun sa HK, tourist lang din sila dun, tinaon lang na punta na rin ako kasi di naman kailangan ng visa. Kaya lang nag-aalala talaga ko sa mga IO. May tips ba kayo? Ano yung mga itatanong nila? Hahanapan ba nila ko ng pera? Simpleng worker lang ako at kakagraduate ko lang kaya wala pa akong ipon, as in pocket money na 20k lang meron ako.

^sis, wag kang matakot kung wala ka namang gagawing masama don. yes, mas mahigpit sila pag solo ka pero dapat maging confident ka lang sumagot sa tanong nila & sabihin mo yong totoo. 10k pesos lang allowed na pwedeng ilabas sa pinas kaya dapat bili ka ng HK dollars. passport, rountrip ticket & kung may hotel reservation pakita mo na rin though hindi naman talaga required to. :) kung government ka nagwowork make sure na kumuha ka ng travel authority para hindi ka maharang ng IO. ;)

Private naman sis kaya okay lang, kailangan pa ba kumuha ng sort of vacation letter galing sa HR? Oo sis balak ko nga bumili ng 10k worth na HKD para may panggastos na rin ako dun. May hostel reservation na rin ako from hotelbookers.com at naprint out ko na. Hay sana di nila ko harangin. Thanks sis rocky!

^di na kelangan ng ganon sis. sabihin mo lang sa IO na pupunta ka sa hk para mag-tour, pag hiningan ka ng company ID saka mo lang pakita. basta isang tanong isang sagot lang. dito lang talaga mahigpit sa atin, mga IO naman sa ibang bansa titingnan lang kung kamukha mo yong nasa passport tapos tatak na, ni walang tanong. ilang beses na rin akong nag-solo trip pero never naman akong tinanong tungkol sa pocket money. :)

theflygirl i think hindi na nila papansinin yon, tatanungin lang yan kung ilang taon, kahit pa hindi naka register yan, wala naman sya bayad.

Hi! I want my daughter to experience the character meet and greet at the enchanted garden restaurant in hongkong disneyland hotel. I'm thinking of trying the dinner buffet but it's a bit expensive. Has anyone tried it yet? Is it worth the price? Or ok narin if we'll have the breakfast buffet instead? Thanks :)
Thank You Lord for my beautiful little princess Lorraine Janelle:)

okay naman yung dinner buffet, lots of selection pero hindi ako nakapag concentrate sa pagkain dahil umiikot yung mga characacters kailangan magpicture picture, expensive pero same experience kung mag breakfast buffet ka. If there's an occasion and you're celebrating mas okay ang dinner, pero kung gusto lang naman ng mga kids yung mga characters okay na din ang breakfast.

punta kayo sa Disneyland Hotel ng mga bandang 9:30- 10:00 am, nandon yung mga disney princess sa lobby, usually dalawa sila, si Belle (Beauty) at si Aurora (Sleeping Beauty)... it will save you time kasi hindi nyo na kailangan pumili sa pagpapapicture sa park.

^true, during a previous stay at Disneyland Hotel, we chanced upon Snow White at the lobby so photo op to the max yung daughter Ko with her dad while I was checking us out.

Thanks for the tip, prettybarbie! By the way, is it worth it to visit sky100? We're leaving already later, I've no permanent itinerary. Haha. Actually, I don't really wanna make one. Slow-paced trip kasi. Play by ear lang.
