For Edward’s 3rd birthday we have decided to celebrate it in Hongkong Disneyland. He likes Mickey Mouse and Lightning McQueen. And while he still likes Mickey Mouse, it’s the best gift for him… experience.
We stayed in Hongkong Disneyland Hotel and had breakfast in the Enchanted Garden, for a chance to see Mickey Mouse and the gang while eating.
I tried to wait for a promo before booking for the trip, but in the end, we availed of the 15% discount in the hotel. When I informed them it was my son’s birthday, they offered a birthday cake starting at HK$300 for 1 pound subject to 10% service charge. We got the Chocolate Truffle Cake in Mickey Shape. It can be delivered during lunch/dinner in the restaurant or via room service. We got the room service option.
American Cheese Cake
Chocolate Truffle Cake
Fresh Fruit Cream Cake
Mango Mousse Cake
Mickey Shape (Mickey Style or Minnie Style)
There is also a Duffy & Shellie May Birthday Celebration Package in Enchanted Garden during lunch and dinner for HK$400 for 1 pound (for 6 guests and also subject to 10% service charge)
Duffy – Milk Chocolate Mousse Cake
ShellieMay – Fresh Fruit Cream Cake
The cake comes with a set of Party Favor, including a Gift Bag, cone-shape Party Hat, Balloon, Cutlery, Birthday Pin, Birthday card & Stickers.
Also, it is free to write guest’s name on the small white chocolate disc (9cm X 3cm)
– English wordings (Block letter or Small letter) up to 30 letters; or
– Chinese wordings up to 8 words
Birthday celebrants can also visit city hall in Main Street to get a birthday pin, just present photo identification. But, it was also provided in the Hotel Lobby, receptionist. They also have stickers. Edward was able to get some stickers because other kids just ran to the reception and asked for it. Edward was lucky to be nearby, he got some as well.
And for the ticket to Disneyland, we opted to get the Show Your Disney Side package, the price of the ticket is the same as the 1-day ticket, but we get a free personalized keychain and 1 meal per person. It was worth it. For more details, please check it here.
Now the question is… is it hard to bring a preschooler abroad? Definitely! Since he was not familiar with the place, he opted that we carry him. But it was definitely worth it. Especially seeing Edward enjoy his special day. All the body ache was truly worth it.
