The happiest place on earth has found a home in Hong Kong, with Hong Kong Disneyland in Penny’s Bay welcoming millions of visitors through the gates of its iconic Main Street U.S.A. entrance each year.
Opened in 2005 on a reclaimed patch of Lantau Island, Hong Kong Disneyland includes all the lands which make this beloved theme park a family-favourite the world over. From the opening glimpse of Sleepy Beauty Castle down Main Street U.S.A. a fun-filled visit is guaranteed, whether you’re spending time in Fantasyland, Adventureland, Tomorrowland, Grizzly Gulch, Mystic Point or Toy Story Land.
Though Hong Kong Disneyland mirrors many of the Disney theme parks around the globe, this is no carbon-copy replica. Heavily influenced by the Chinese philosophy of feng shui and boasting countless Asian-influenced eateries, Hong Kong does Disneyland with a decidedly Asian twist. The impressive Toy Story Land is one of only two in the world – the other is in France – while the supernatural-themed Mystic Point reflects enduring Chinese beliefs in the ghostly spirit netherworld.
Just as popular as the various themed lands, are the parades and colourful fireworks displays which take place throughout the park on a regular basis. Along with daily entertainment, the park also throws seasonal celebrations, ensuring Hong Kong Disneyland is the place to be for family-friendly festivities – from Chinese New Year to Christmas and everything in between.
