Hong Kong International Theme Parks
Located on a patch of reclaimed land, Hong Kong Disneyland features a number of heavily themed areas. Guests enter via Main Street U.S.A., walking towards the iconic Sleeping Beauty Castle. From there, they can reach Fantasyland, Tomorrowland and Adventureland, all of which feature attractions that will be familiar to fans of Disney's US parks. Toy Story Land hosts a handful of themed flat rides, while Grizzly Gulch is the park's first unique offering and is headlined by the impressive Big Grizzly Mountain Runaway Mine Cars roller coaster.
History: Hong Kong Disneyland was constructed between January 2003 and September 2005, and was the smallest Magic Kingdom-style park in the world when it opened. It has struggled to meet its attendance targets, although visitors numbers have picked up in recent years. A major expansion plan was announced in 2009, with the first new land, Toy Story Land, opening in November 2011. A second, Grizzly Gulch, followed in 2012, with Mystic Point due to debut in 2013. Unusually for a Disney park, all three new lands are located outside of the Hong Kong Disneyland Railroad track.
