Welcome to Hong Kong Disneyland, a theme park located on reclaimed land in Penny’s Bay, Lantau Island..
The park is the largest of its type in Hong Kong and opened on Monday, 12 September 2005. Disney incorporated Chinese culture, customs and traditions into the design and build of the resort, including adherence to the rules of feng shui. Notably, a bend was put in a walkway near the Hong Kong Disneyland Resort entrance so good qi energy would not flow into the South China Sea.
The park consists of seven themed areas: Main Street, U.S.A., Fantasyland, Adventureland, Tomorrowland, Grizzly Gulch, Mystic Point, and Toy Story Land. The theme park’s cast members speak Cantonese, English, and Mandarin. Guide maps are printed in traditional and simplified Chinese as well as English.
The park attracts around 7.4 million visitors a year, making Hong Kong Disneyland the 13th most visited theme park in the world.
The Happiest Place on Earth
Inspired by the Main Street, U.S.A. in Disneyland, the buildings of this Main Street are almost identical to those in Anaheim. Like other Disney theme parks, Hong Kong Disneyland’s Main Street, U.S.A. serves as the entrance of the park.
The theme is heavily influenced by European immigrants. Plaza Inn mimics a classical Chinese eatery that was created by a wealthy American couple who were infatuated with Chinese culture. Another restaurant, the Market House Bakery is reminiscent of a bakery founded by a Viennese pastry chef who brought the world’s most famous desserts from the Austrian imperial court.
Hong Kong Disneyland’s Adventureland is the biggest among all Disney parks. It features a large island area home to Tarzan’s Treehouse, which is circled by the Jungle Cruise.
The Adventureland is also home to the “Festival of the Lion King” show and the new atmosphere stage show “Moana: a Homecoming Celebration” at Jungle Junction.
Tomorrowland at Hong Kong Disneyland features an emphasis on metallic trim, dominated by blue and purple hues. Since the opening of the park, unique attractions have been added into the Hong Kong’s Tomorrowland, such as a new Autopia and Stitch Encounter.
The first ever Marvel attraction in a Disney theme park, The Iron Man Experience, opened on 11 January 2017 and the land also features Ant-Man and The Wasp: Nano Battle!, which opened on 31 March 2019.
Fantasyland features Sleeping Beauty Castle as its icon. It also has several attractions based on Disney films such as The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, Dumbo the Flying Elephant, it’s a small world and Cinderella’s Carousel. There is also Fantasy Gardens where costumed Disney characters can be met, and a Fairy Tale Forest.
Toy Story Land is themed using bamboo to act as giant blades of grass surrounding the area. The themed land makes use of characters from the Toy Story movies, such as an enlarged Woody, Rex, an oversized paper plane, and Luxo Jr.
Opened on 14 July 2012, the themed land is reminisces of an abandoned mining town called “Grizzly Gulch”, set amidst mountains and woods. The centrepiece structure is Big Grizzly Mountain Runaway Mine Cars, inspired by Grizzly Peak in Disney California Adventure Park.
The town was set to be founded 8 August 1888 — the luckiest day of the luckiest month of the luckiest year — by prospectors looking to discover gold.
Mystic Point is a new themed land in Hong Kong Disneyland. It is set in 1909 at an adventurer’s outpost established in 1896 in a dense, uncharted rain forest surrounded by mysterious forces and supernatural events.
The site features Mystic Manor, home of Lord Henry Mystic, a world traveler and adventurer and his mischievous monkey, Albert.
Located in a tropical outpost adjacent to the scenic Jungle River Cruise, River View Cafe is renowned throughout the jungle for gorgeous views and delicious dishes inspired by China and Southeast Asia.
