Hong Kong Disneyland




Hong Kong Disneyland (Traditional Chinese: 香港迪士尼樂園) is the first theme park inside the Hong Kong Disneyland Resort which is owned and managed by the Hong Kong International Theme Parks, an incorporated company jointly owned by The Walt Disney Company and the Government of Hong Kong.

Hong Kong Disneyland, the fifth and most recent Magic Kingdom style park in the world, is located on reclaimed land in Penny's Bay, Lantau Island. After years of negotiations and construction, the park finally opened to visitors on September 12, 2005, which is considered to be an auspicious date for the opening of a new business, according to a Chinese almanac. Disney paid close attention to Chinese culture, customs, and traditions when building Hong Kong Disneyland Resort. The resort was built with many interesting settings according to the rules of Feng Shui.

Officially, the park is able to handle a maximum of 34,000 visitors daily.

The park consists of four themed lands similar to those found in the other Disneyland parks around the world. They are Main Street, U.S.A., Fantasyland, Adventureland and Tomorrowland.

Although the park is the smallest Disneyland in the world, the park has announced the planned opening of two new attractions in the summer of 2007. In addition, the classic Disney attraction, "It's A Small World," will open in early 2008. The park will continue to expand by adding more new attractions in the future. Over a 15 year expansion period, the park will gradually be able to handle up to 10 million visitors annually. The resort currently has 310 acres (1.3 km²), with the actual park taking approximately 100 acres (0.4 km²).

The theme park uses both English and Chinese (mainly in Traditional for text, both in Traditional and Simplified for Guide Maps, Cantonese and Mandarin in verbal) in its communication. The park also provides Guide Maps in Japanese.
