“Here you leave today and enter the world of yesterday, tomorrow, and fantasy.” — those were Walt’s words when he was thinking of building a theme park after visiting a lot of amusement parks in the mid 1930s. The first Disneyland in California opened on July 17th of 1955 and since then, the theme park opened several parks across the globe.

Hong Kong Disneyland, located beside Penny’s Bay, Lantau Island is the latest addition as of the moment. Covering the entire 320 acres of reclaimed land at Penny’s Bay, HK Disneyland Resort still is the smallest Disneyland Resort in the entire world. Hong Kong Disneyland may be small but it surely lives up to the expectation as being the happiest place on Earth.

Amen to Sir Walt!

The Theme Park Addict

Contributor: Melvin Corales

Having been able to visit the Happiest Place on Earth last year, it is a no brainer to visit its rival theme park – The Universal Studios. Our trip to Singapore last August 15th-19th won’t be complete without paying a visit to this world class theme park.

Having the tagline “Ride the Movies”, Universal Studios will take you on a journey behind movie magic. Coming from a person working in a Broadcasting Company and very much familiar with all the “behind the scenes”, this is pretty awesome.

Singapore’s Universal Studios occupies 20 hectares, 8 hectares smaller than that of Hong Kong Disneyland. Universal Studios has seven themed lands – Hollywood, New York, Sci-Fi City, Ancient Egypt, The Lost World, Far Far Away, and Madagascar.
