I am thinking about taking my wife and 9 year old daughter on vacation to Hong Kong Disneyland. I was wondering how important it is to stay on the property. The Hotels seem to be a bit expensive but I really want this to be super special for my daughter. Can you tell me the advantages of staying on site. Also, I am a photographer and love to shoot street photography. I would like to know where there are authentic sites near the theme park. I will take a day to site see and take shots. Thank you for the help.

As very basic, first "reaching out" questions for Hong Kong, business mainland (kowloon):
1. cost of living assuming good hostel (dormitory), mid-range eating places, some public transport or local taxi in the island.
2. which currency - EUR or USD to bring with me, or is it the same in terms of local customs and acceptance.
3. General use of MasterCard - can rely on it in most places? banks? ATMs? No danger of "duplicating" in shops?
4. Places of medical help / clinic in case of need, western standards.
5. words of safety/beware of........(young woman traveling alone).
6. recommended travel pages here on VT.

I am worried that we won't be able to check-in if the reception is not availabe at the time of our arrival. I left a message at Agoda but until now I still have not received any response to assure me that there will be someone to attend to us for our check-in during that time.
