From being the happiest place on Earth, Hong Kong Disneyland became the most romantic place for a 'Maalala Mo Kaya' letter sender.

Featured on Saturday's episode was Karla Bonifacio and her boyfriend, Gio Manay, whose story taught viewers the value of giving someone a second chance at love.

A year ago, Bonifacio and Manay broke up at the popular theme park. This year, however, they are back together and are making new memories in a place that once witnessed how her heart was broken.

Upon arriving in Hong Kong Disneyland, Bonfiacio admitted that she cried as she remembered painful moments, but she shrugged it off and looked forward to making new, happy memories.

"Disneyland made sure that this trip would be memorable for us and that we were there to make new memories," she said.

Along with the 'MMK' team and lead actors JC Santos and Bela Padilla, Bonifacio and Manay checked in at the Disney Explorer's Lodge, Hong Kong Disneyland Resort's newest hotel.

The seven-storey structure has 750 hotel rooms, each featuring an open sea view or a landscape view of one of the four lush themed gardens that exemplify the cultures of Asia, South America, Africa, and Oceania.

Guests could easily find the fun in the four gardens, all-new restaurants, and themed rooms. These exotic adventures are just a stone's throw from downtown, making it convenient for anyone seeking high-quality accommodation with a dash of Disney magic.

Bonifacio said she was amazed when she saw the room, noting that it was well-thought-out when it comes to the designs and set-up.

"I said that we won't be able to experience this with our own money and that this is the full-blown Disney adventure. They were also very welcoming plus they gave us Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse stuff toys and balloons."

The couple also enjoyed the sumptuous food selections and quality service given by Hong Kong Disneyland.

They also explored the Mystic Manor, a mystifying museum where exotic artifacts from around the globe came to life, and got the chance to be kids again in Toy Story Land.

They had the chance to cast off on a thrilling expedition with elephants, gorillas, and hippos in the Jungle River Cruise, and took pictures while walking around the scenic places in the park.

Capping off their experience, they joined the afternoon and evening parade as they watched all the Disney characters come alive.

Bonifacio was thrilled to see Mickey and Minnie Mouse in the finale of the show, having failed to finish the parade during their last visit.

But the highlight of their trip to Disneyland this time came through new memories, as Bonifacio shared how her boyfriend made her feel.

"This time, he really made me feel that his 100% attention was on me," she said.
