Can we do Disney - Tung Chung - Disney in a day?

Hi, coming to HK after a tour of China at the beginning of August. Thought we could possibly do Disney early then (if we can) go to Tung Chung for the outlet shopping then back to Disney for the fireworks and last rides. Staying near Wan Chai. Ideas please! Thanks

Sure you can. Note that Disneyland opens at 10:00 am. So it is not too "early" early. And the outlet shopping is like not going to take more than 2 hours at City Gate. Get your hand stamped to return later.

It's only about 20 mins by MTR or 15 mins in a taxi from Disneyland's public transport interchange to Tung Chung Station which is connected to Citygate Outlets, so quite easily done. You need to present both tickets and handstamp to re-enter the park.

Thanks for the swift response ... Great! I take it the MtR is the best way to do the journey? We are going to get Octopus cards (I believe we can get these in WanChai station, can we use credit card or does it have to be cash? ... My kids, albeit adults in Octopus terms, want he Hello kitty ones!). Thanks again

Taxi would work. MTR works just about the same at a lower cost, albeit taking about few more minutes. Your kids are probably going to enjoy riding the Mickey Mouse theme train (Disneyland Resort Station to Sunny Bay Station) as many times as they get on it.

Re #3 you need cash to pay for Octopus. The Hello Kitty Octopus, which is a Sold Octopus and is an ornament, has no stored useable value on it when purchased. It costs HK$178 to buy and you would need to add value (minimum HK50) before it can be used for travel.

Standard Adult On-loan Octopus Card is HK$150 which comprises HK$50 deposit and HK$100 initial stored useable value. The HK$50 deposit and any unused stored value is refunded (less HK$9 admin fee) is refunded when the card is returned before leaving HK.

Most folks needed to spend an entire day inside the park to see all the noteworthy shows and popular rides. So going to Citygate in between might not be a good idea unless you'll be able to accomplish everything on your agenda early.

Agree with Justin L, especially if you have kids. You need all day to do the rides and the shows. But if you have shortlisted the rides and shows you want to do, you can do both.
