I met Buzz Lightyear for the first time at the Flights of Fantasy parade in Hong Kong Disneyland Hong Kong. When I went to Hong Kong Disneyland, Tugga was immersed in Toy Story and its characters Sheriff Woody, Buzz Lightyear, Mr. Potato Head, Slinky Dog and others. They had become a part of our family. Discussions were around them at the dining table, kitchen, bathroom, pillow talks and in true sense all over the place..

Where does the Flights of Fantasy Parade happen in Hong Kong Disneyland?

The Flights of Fantasy parade starts from Disney’s Storybook theatre area, which is just adjacent to Tomorrowland. Tomorrowland is the place where I had experienced the Hyperspace mountain, another roller coaster ride, which makes you shriek and scream at every turn. The entire parade is of 1 hour and ends in the Main Street USA view area, where there are beautiful theme houses for collectibles, merchandise and cafes too. The day I had gone, it started around 1 PM but one can always check for the show timings.

What is Flights of Fantasy? 

Flights of Fantasy is a carnival. You will find kids along with parents, enthusiast teenagers and grown ups lined along side the road with some sitting on the roads too. Mickey Mouse, the face of Disney, along with his family and Classic Disney characters from The Jungle Book, The Lion King and The Toy Story joins the parade with aerialists and acrobats. They come in large vehicles painted with bright colours and decorated with Disney Themes. Some of the vehicles have the aerialists performing stunts in the air, some waving to the crowd and some even walking on the road. All this with loud, peppy music to uplift the mood. It’s one hour of anticipation and smiles as you guess who is the next one coming up.

Enjoy the Flights of Fantasy – A few tips

  1. On a normal day, it’s suggested to reach the place atleast 30 mins before the start and on weekends, even 45 mins before to get a place with a great view 
  2. While the parade is going on, they do not allow you to cross the road. Hence it os best to choose you side right at the beginning. 
  3. There are times when the characters, while walking would come very near you. For me, Buzz lightyear came near and took a pic with me too, which I eventually lost when my previous mobile crashed. 
  4. Later I came to know that one of the best places to take pictures is from the USA Min Street view, as one can get the main Disney castle at the background too 
  5. A cap for sun protection and a bottle of water is a must to carry. It is sunny and humid round the year.

What memories to carry back from Flights of Fantasy Hong Kong Disneyland ?

This was one hour where in true sense I was transported to a different land. The temperature and heat, thirst and struggle to take pictures were relished when I look back and relive those moments. All the Disney characters who have even been a part of my childhood coming live is a spectacle. I relive my childhood now with my kids and I relived the childhood in Flights of Fantasy in Hong Kong Disneyland
