We arrived from Hong Kong Island via MTR from Hong Kong station and changed onto the Disney Train. A tip would be to purchase your tickets before you arrive, either online or at the basement of the Hong Kong train station.
This was my first visit to a Disneyland, so on entry I turned into a big kid when I saw the characters. There park is well laid out and you can use Fast Pass on two of the rides: Space Mountain and Winnie the Pooh. Space mountain is a great ride for adults and older kids. Winnie the Pooh is 100% for the small children.
We enjoyed seeing all of the characters and the architecture to make the place Disney. Unfortunately around lunchtime there was a warning of thunderstorms so all outside rides were closed, this is the majority of them, plus the parades. This meant the queues for the inside rides were well over 90 minutes. I understand the need for health and safety but there was no wind, a little rain, no lightening and mainly patchy cloud - yet the rides were closed. Not that they would, but if Disney set up in the UK they would close the rides more than they would open them as our weather is like this most of the time and I have often sat on a roller coaster in the pouring rain. Such a shame and left a bitter taste in the mouth when we left as we couldn't go on a couple of the rides.
There is also an issue with the clientele that the area attracts. They either do not understand or just don't not have manors to be able to queue and wait their turn. We had one family member in front of us queuing and when they got to the front they called their family, of 9 members, and tried to push in from of us. Oh no you don't! Needless to say they stayed behind us after a few strong words and arm waving. This happened countless times with almost stampede like scenes when entering the Lion King and Mickey music show. Watch your feet as they will be trampled!!
Overall worth a visit but make sure you check the weather, be prepared to queue, be prepared for people who are rude and push in and highlight the rides you want to go on. Our stand outs were: Space Mountain, Buzz Lightyear, Lion King and Toy Story race car.
