Wiki

Hong Kong Disneyland (Chinese香港迪士尼樂園) is located onreclaimed land in Penny's BayLantau Island. It is the first theme parklocated inside the Hong Kong Disneyland Resort and is owned and managed by the Hong Kong International Theme Parks. The park opened to visitors on 12 September 2005. Disney attempted to avoid problems of cultural backlash by attempting to incorporate Chinese culture, customs, and traditions when designing and building the resort, including adherence to the rules of Feng Shui. For instance, a bend was put in a walkway near the Hong Kong Disneyland Resort entrance so good "qi" energy wouldn't flow into the South China Sea.[1]

The park consists of four themed areas: Main Street, U.S.A.,FantasylandAdventureland, and Tomorrowland. The theme park's cast members speak in Cantonese, English, and Mandarin. Guide maps are printed in traditional and simplified Chinese as well as English, French, and Japanese.

The park has a daily capacity of 34,000 visitors[2] — the least out of all Disneyland parks. It has so far fallen short of its targeted visitorship figures. The park attracted 5.2 million visitors in its first year, below its target of 5.6 million. Visitor numbers fell 20% in the second year to 4 million,[3] inciting criticisms from local legislators.[4] However, the park attendance slightly increased by 8% in the third year, attracting a total of 4.5 million visitors in 2007. In 2009, the park attendance again increased by 2% to 4.8 million visitors. The attendance continued to surge and received 5.23 million guests in the 2009/2010 fiscal year. Since the opening of Hong Kong Disneyland, the theme park has hosted over 25 million guests.[5]

Hong Kong Disneyland currently occupies 22.4 hectares (55 acres), it will be expanded to 27.4 hectares (68 acres)[6] when three new themed areas are completed. After the expansion, the park is expected to handle 7.92 million to 8.92 million visitors annually. The park capacity will increase to handle up to 10 million visitors annually over a 15 year expansion period.[7]

Been visiting Disneyland quite a bit these days since it's at my backyard literally. The way to go about it is to get the magic access (year ticket) which costs a mere HK$650 if you are available during the weekdays. Since Christmas, I have been enjoying quite a bit of the few shows put up by the staff, esp. Golden Mickeys, Mickey's parade and the fireworks every night (which will probably been on until the 15th day of the Lunar New Year). So, if you haven't been there recently, it's …

Hong Kong Disneyland opened its doors to visitors about 5 years ago and has seen increasing number of visitors ever since, largely from the Mainland China. I've been to all the Disneylands in the world and find this one a tad small, especially when compared to Disney World which to date is still the best of the whole lot of Disney Theme Parks. Nonetheless, until Disneyland Shanghai opens some 5 years later, this is the only one of the two in Asia, the other one being Tokyo Disneyland.
