Winter has always been regarded as a romantic season for travelling since the snow-capped cities are so lovely and charming. Though there is no snow-white scene in Hong Kong’s winter, we can still spend a fairy holiday in the Hong Kong Disneyland.
The Hong Kong Disneyland is situated in Penny’s Bay, Lantau Island, which occupies an area of 1260000 square meters. Opened in 2005, it has soon become the newest theme park and the most attractive scenic spot of Hong Kong, welcoming over millions of visitors every year. Owned and managed by the Hong Kong International Theme Parks, Hong Kong Disneyland is a combination of both western and eastern culture, for instance, the design and construction have included western concept, traditional US Disneyland design, Chinese traditions and customs as well as the rules of Fengshui. To avoid culture shock and language barriers, the cast members of Hong Kong Disneyland can speak Cantonese, Mandarin and English and the guide maps are translated into several common-used languages, such as English, traditional & simplified Chinese, Japanese, French and so on.
Do you want to be as happy as a child? Or do you want to record your funny Childhood? Once you enter the Hong Kong Disneyland, you begin your fairy trip. The Hong Kong Disneyland can be mainly divided into 7 themed areas, Main Street, USA, Fantasyland, Adventure land, Tomorrow land, Grizzly Gulch, Mystic Point and Toy Story Land. Walt Disney designed this fantastic and adventured wonderland not only for the young, but also the young in heart. Here we are going to explore some of the typical themed areas in Hong Kong Disneyland.
Main Street USA
For most visitors, Main Street USA are first stop, which features market house bakery, main street corner café, plaza inn, curiosity shop, silhouette shop and some other delicate buildings. You know plaza inn, right? The first Chinese restaurant opened in Main Street in about 19 century. Wandering in the Main Street, the dim gas lamp, special taxicabs, typical Disneyland railroads and paddy wagon may bring you back to the 20th century’s USA.
Retreated from the Main Street USA, we will now have a brave try in the Adventure Land. A bold and powerful captain will guide us through the Jungle River Cruise and reach the heart of center regions. Then take a deep breath and say hello to the horrible wild animals like cobras, elephants and hippos. If you are courageous enough, startling jungle events are waiting ahead of you.
Do you still remember the poor but pretty Cinderella? Have you ever been attracted by the little flying elephants and Alice? Are you fond of Sleeping Beauty and Mickey Mouse? Then come to Fantasy Land and relive your storybook dreams! You can embrace with your favorite cartoon character like Donald Duck and take a photo with him? You can wear 3-D magic glasses and date with Aladdin on the mysterious carpet. You can also appreciate the classic musical drama filled with mixing acrobatics and special effects. Actually, you can do a lot of interesting things beyond imagination.
Tips: Hong Kong Disneyland is opened from 10.00 to 19.00 during weekdays and 10.00 to 21.00 on weekends.
