Inaugurated in September 2005, Hong Kong Disneyland features all the fantasy and magic that people expect from Disney parks – classic attractions, exciting rides, theme hotels, dazzling restaurants, exceptional shops, and unmatched live entertainment. Hong Kong Disneyland is the fifth theme park in the Disneyland style and the first one to recreate some of the attractions like the Sleeping Beauty Castle, present in the original Disneyland Park in California. This park also features a few of the most notable attractions from other Disney parks such as the Magic Kingdom at the Walt Disney World in Florida.
Hong Kong Disneyland has been designed to transport you from the world of reality to one of adventure, imagination, and magic. Get set to be mesmerized by medieval castles, jungle elephants, fire engines from yester years, and gleaming space-age rockets. The best part of the trip is to be able to meet your favorite Disney characters like Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, Minnie Mouse, Goofy, Aladdin, Cinderella, Snow White, and many others.
There are four zones in Hong Kong Disneyland, each one designed to carry you off to another era and another place. Here is a detailed look at the four lands
Guests enter Fantasyland thorough the Sleeping Beauty’s Castle. Fantasyland is a magically fascinating place where your favorite stories and Disney characters come alive. You can meet Mickey, Snow White, Alice in Wonderland, Winnie the Pooh, or fly off to Neverland with Peter Pan. The experience is almost like the characters stepping out of the storybooks and coming to life right before your eyes.
This is a sci-fi world where exciting space adventures await you. It is almost like blasting off into space for real, and arriving at an intergalactic outpost. You can also get going on adventurous trips with Buzz Lightyear. Every attraction, restaurant, and shop in Tomorrow land features floating planets, spaceships, and robots.
This land welcomes guests to exotic locales modeled after the African jungles. Watch out for surprises springing from every direction and scary treats lurking behind each bend. If you are a true daredevil, do not miss the daring cruise through the jungle river. There is also something for the less adventurous. Live entertainment shows in the indoor theater, which incidentally, also happens to be among the largest in the world.
Main Street USA
Stepping into Main Street USA is like suddenly finding yourself in small, quintessential American town, with the classic, slow-paced life of the 1800s. The nostalgic design of this land represents the transition happening in the United States in the late 1800s when major inventions were changing the way of life. Observe how the gas lamps are slowly being replaced by electric lights and how the early automobiles were raising a threat to horse-drawn carriages.
In addition to all these classic Disney attractions, Hong Kong Disneyland is also home to many original attractions that have been specifically designed for Hong Kong. Local culture has been expertly blended into the parades and live entertainment shows to cater to local tastes.
