HK Disneyland (Park and Hotel) 2012 - Our girls' birthday trip! PART 2

On our second day, we decided to just stay in our beautiful hotel and explore it's surroundings, as well as take part in the different activities the Kingdom Club had for its guests.

Breakfast was at the Lounge, yes it was small, but just enough for the guests on the 7/F alone. 

Loved the Mickey waffle, eggs, Chinese noodles and cherry tomatoes in olive oil.  This was mine and Hub's by the way ;P  The kids had very good congee, perfect warm meal to start their day.  

After breakfast, we went around the majestic Victorian hotel.  

 Loved the fact that function rooms are so aptly named

 Cinderella's Grand Staircase

A loyal Clarins user, had thoughts of posing as a delegate...needed to find an ID though...

Bibidi Bobidi Boutique for little girls.  Note that A is again wearing her gown.

Indoor pool, didn't get to swim though as both girls still had bad coughs :(

HK shopping...so near yet so far..LOL

It was already late in the afternoon when we decided to go outside the Maze Garden, the Disneyland Hotel baywalk, and a secret Garden Park! 

 Oh dear, if you look closely, you'll see an eye sore to such a beautiful facade.

Headed to the Club Lounge to relax and since hors d'oeuvres were being served along with wine and beer, Hub and I thought we'd have some as appetizers first before having dinner.

Little did we know that there'd be so much good food for us adults too!  Just ordered food for the kids as we were both so stuffed from the canapes, dumplings, chicken wings, lamb and duck rolls, and dessert served.

Pardon my partly eated plate, was too excited! And yes, they had chardonnay.  
The kids capped the night off with a visit from Mickey Mouse himself, and a bedtime story at the Lounge.

The following day was A's 5th Birthday, we arranged for a Mickey-shaped truffle cake the night before.  Talking to the Lounge staff was such pleasure, every aspect of our stay at the hotel was without a glitch.  Have to specifically mention the girls' Auntie Yvonne, with whom S took quite a liking.  She was always very pleasant and provided an extra personal touch to everything she did.  we absolutely loved her.

The cake was ready at 1030AM as the castmembers (staff in Disney lingo) promised.  A was again wearing her Princess Belle gown :)  She was just sooo happy and excited.  Our S was so busy trying to blow out the candle from A's cake it was hilarious.
Again, we knew early on that this would not be a shopping trip so we went to the airport early to do some duty free shopping instead.  Bear in mind that the check in counters only open three hours prior to your flight, heehee, guess you know that we were there way to early.
Perhaps weary from the excitement and hotel exploring from our trip, Hub and hardly shopped for anything at all!  (Big sigh of relief from Hub)

The kids' waiting and play area were right beside our boarding gate.  Small chairs and tables and a TV were provided.

The flight back home was pleasant enough, again their iPads were proven to be of much to to our kids.

Magical indeed. And blessed.  Can't wait to go back ;)
