OR do what I did on X'mas eve 2006.
Go to Disneyland 1st. Have fun till about 4pm.
Go to Citygate to shop & eat.
Come back in time for the fireworks. (you don't want to miss it; seen it before but every time I see it, it seems so surreal and magical -> Singapore NDP fireworks sucks compared to this).

Make sure you get the timing for the firework show.
Ensure that you have your hand stamped for re-entry to the park and don't lose the admission tickets.
Give yourself 20 min to get from Citigate to Disneyland Main Street.
Enjoy the fireworks - especially nice if you are holding hand with wife or gf (it's really romantic even with thousands of others around you - much nicer than the "romantic" but filthy city of Paris IMHO).

ps - do you know anyone born in 1997 - there's an offer of a free 1 year pass.

Alrite, will not miss the firework show, hope I don't lug too much stuff from CityGate tho... the fireworks will be a highlight for sure for wifey... hope it'll be better than the Paris one!

btw, I noticed there are bits & pieces of info on where to eat, can anyone advise a list of places (in English, cos sad to say, I struggle with my Chinese) to eat in Mong kok, Wan Chai and CityGate area. Budget's probably abt $40 for 2 pax each meal bah... I struggled with a few of the websites in Chinese with no English translation

I like the HK Disney fireworks because of the nice background music and the fact that it happens over the Cinderella castle.

In HK, I read mainly the last few words of the chinese menu (the first few are usally flowery descriptive terms) which describes the dish. Eg the first few words may say "Delicious Tasting Crystal Skinned" and the last words may say "Har Gau".

When all else fails try asking for Dry Beef Hor Fun or Fried Rice!

As for food around Citigate, I really like Cafe Rendezous (it's in the building next to Citigate) - a bit run down but extremely good food (Crystal Jade standard at Zi Char price).
Even ang mos can go there and order so don't worry!!

skip the half day city tour. my experience is have to pay for over priced and mediocre breakfast and lunch. will bring you shopping in jewellery outlet and Chinese TCM shop. Rest of time will bring you to temple and half way up the Peak.

Firstly, visit to Golden Bauhunua Square. The Golden Bauhunua is a gift to mark the widespread joy of the Chinese at the return of the territory to the Motherland after 156 years. Next, we will visit Hong Kong Repulse Bay . It's long and broad sandy beach highest representative characteristics in Hong Kong. A 10 meters high images of Tin Hau, Goddess of Mercy, and Avalokitesvara were constructed inside an ancient Sea View Tower built on the beach. Lastly, we will proceed to Aberdeen Fishing Village, sharing the experiences of the 'boat people'. Aberdeen fishing village is one of Hong Kong's oldest and most popular tourist attractions whose magic continues to be a scenic highlight for any Hong Kong island tour. Here, you can choose to take an optional sampan ride at your own expense for a closer look at its fisherfolk's unusual lifestyle on boats.

Hpmm should i skip?
