I also would like to congratulate you on your admirable restraint in not making a "Peking Duck" joke about Donald and his outfit. I, on the other hand, could not resist. ;^)

Published: November 21, 2013 at 4:51 PMVery good review. I admit my visit wasn't as good due to the fact that I had a 4 year old which limited the visit to 6 hours and the selection of rides. By 4 pm, we had to call it the day.
Still haven't seen Mystic Manor. Wasn't open at the time. I didn't much enjoy Grizzly Gulch. The ride was as dull as it can be. They seemed to have left off much atmosphere in the park. I didn't hear any background music.
Strange to find myself loving Pooh and Small World the most. I quite enjoyed the Golden Mickeys show and the Parade (forgot the name of it). I didn't much like the Lion King show. Heard the same songs too many times.
Overall, I would love to go back to see it again with Mystic Manor and I would love to see Tomorrowland, which I skipped.
I thought the emphasis on Chinese comfort food to be interesting. Fried rice, fried noodles, noodle soup. Oh well.

Interesting note about the music in the park, Anon Mouse. There is a soundtrack in each land, but the music seems to be turned down a little, at least in comparison to the U.S. and Tokyo. But, I know it's there - I remember hearing Frontierland music in GG, as well as the usual Main St. and Tomorrowland favorites in their respective lands.
Actually, the food of HKDL is focused not just on Chinese cuisine but all of SE Asia. The choices are narrower than the options at Tokyo Disney Resort, which span the globe (and do a heck of a job at it).
