Festival of the Lion King, Hong Kong, Disneyland

Every time I visit Hong Kong Disneyland, I make sure to watch Festival of the Lion King.  It’s that one show that I think I’ll never get tired of watching. For me, it’s by far, the most entertaining Disney show.

Festival of the Lion King is a live interpretation and truncated version of Disney’s “The Lion King” movie. In Hong Kong, the show is in both English and Cantonese.

The Victoria’s Peak, Hong Kong

There are several ways to get to the Victoria’s Peak. You can either walk or take the bus going to the Lower Terminus.

If you’re coming from the MTR Central Station, make your way to the J2 exit and walk towards where the Bank of China Tower is located.  Cross Queen’s Road Central and Garden Road heading to Cheung Kong Centre.  Walk towards the Garden Road until you reach Lower Albert Road. (Note: You will pass by St. John’s  Cathedral).  Walk along the pathway surounding the fountain and you will reach the Peak Tram Lower Terminus.

Another option is to take the bus to Garden Road Peak Tram Lower Terminus (this is what we took).  Go to the Central Bus Terminus (near Star Ferry Pier 8) and board the Peak Tram shuttle bus No. 15C.  The fare is around HKD $4.20.

We got lost along the way but it’s helpful to ask around.  You’ll see a lot of Filipinos along the streets as you go there.
