Hong Kong Disneyland is a theme park located on reclaimed land in Penny’s Bay, Lantau Island. It is located inside the Hong Kong Disneyland Resort and it is owned and managed by Hong Kong International Theme Parks. It is the largest theme park in Hong Kong, followed by Ocean Park Hong Kong. The park opened to visitors on Monday, 12 September 2005. Disney attempted to avoid problems of cultural backlash. Disneyland incorporates Chinese culture, customs, and traditions when designing and building the resort including adherence to the rules of feng shui. For instance, a bend in a walkway near the Resort entrance keeps good qi energy from flowing into the South China Sea.
Disneyland Park consists of seven themed areas. They include 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 available in traditional and simplified Chinese as well as English.
Hotels include the Victorian-style Hong Kong Disneyland Hotel, Disney Explorers Lodge & Disney’s Hollywood Hotel.
