So given that we had to be in Hong Kong, the suggestion was made by friends that we take the opportunity to spend an extra day there and visit Disney. While I was cool to the idea at first, I warmed to it and made the necessary arrangements. Now having done, would I recommend it? That depends.
While we were low on energy after 2 plus weeks in China, we handled that aspect fairly well. The tickets were reasonable, primarily because it is a small Disney park. It is roughly equivalent to the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World. The issue I did not consider was that rides that were suitable for Gracee and James, as 8 year olds who knew English (and who understood what we were going to experience) were at times not all that suitable for Hudson, who is 5 and knew only Chinese. (And I don't.)
Every one was perk and happy on bus ride from the hotel to the park.
It was a little bit of hike from the parking lot to the park itself. There are no monorails here!
Chip and Dale were waiting om Main Street to greet us. It was our only character encounter of our visit, which I am sure was a relief to Hudson. It helped that the line was short (somewhat less familiar characters) and dad was waiting in an even longer line to rent a stroller. For the price I paid I could have bought one in Guangzhou and left it behind in the park!
Hudson loved the streamers that fell from the ceiling after the Golden Mickeys show. We all loved it because it was inside and air conditioned.

(I will post more Disney shots later. Think this post is long enough already.)
