Small World After All

We're in Hong Kong all this week (so grateful for old friends who lend us a place to crash!). Today I am at Hong Kong Disneyland with the boys while Michael is in meetings all day. We arrived prior to park opening and got to experience the famous rope drop countdown at the end of Main Street USA. In a lifetime of Disney visits, I'm pretty sure it was my first. At any rate, while standing with my impatient-to-be-on-Space Mountain boys, a gentleman approached me and asked if this was my first visit to HKDL. Uh, no. We got to talking and I found out he is from our hometown in the States. Awesome to be on another continent and run into someone who is literally from the same neighborhood! He told me that as soon as he entered the gate, he had officially visited every Disney theme park throughout the world. Wow. We can almost claim the same, the only missing park is Disneyland Paris. It's only a 14 hour flight...

The rope dropped and we went straight to Space Mountain where we were the first ones on the coaster. Because the boys sat together and I was alone, they stuck a single rider next to me. She was a tourist from Mainland, and she held on tightly to my arm the entire time, screaming and moaning her head off. I just laughed and laughed. And then snapped a photo of us at the exit. She looks like she's having fun, right?
