Hong Kong Disneyland is the newest Disneyland in the world. It has a unique Asian taste not seen in other Disneyland parks. And true to all other Disneyland parks, Hong Kong Disneyland promises a big and wild magical adventure for a very memorable trip.
We give you a glimpse of the four main sections inside, what to see and what to expect.
Main Street U.S.A.
The Main Street U.S.A. is the first section you will encounter upon entering the park. There are fragile buildings, blurry gas lamp and Paddy Wagon while passing the Main Street. You can ride the Disneyland Railroad and old taxicabs for a quick tour of the whole park. Visit the City Hall to take you back to the days of good old America in the early 20th century.
The first Chinese restaurant in Main Street is the Plaza Inn. This is set with 19th Century Chinese table settings. The picture of Mulan, a cartoon heroine, is displayed in the restaurant. You could also try the foods in the Market House Bakery and the Main Street Corner Cafe. Catch a glimpse of timeless treasures in the Emporium and Main Street Mercantile, and browse for some souvenirs at the Curiosity Shop and Silhouette Shop.
Next to Main Street is the Adventureland. This is for the brave tourists as the name suggests. Here is the courageous captain who will assist you in the wild Jungle River Cruise. It will take you along the heart of secret areas. You will encounter many cobras, hippos, orangutans, elephants, and surprising jungle events along the way.
Adventureland is given a new image with thrilling 21st century Disney mystery, as an attraction formerly developed by Walt Disney fifty years ago. Visitors will be drawn on the Lion Kings festival being shown. The show is very absorbing with an interesting pageant of music and dances similar to a classic music drama. The performers are the best in Asia, donned in the most colorful costumes and with realistic scenery. The show is fit for all ages.
Visiting the Tarzan Island will be your opportunity to see up close how Tarzan lived. You may go inside and explore his Treehouse, and see where he was raised by gorillas. Afterwards, follow the rhythm of jungle drums to look for the mystery of Liki Tikis. The cool blasts of water will startle and delight the crowd at the same time.
The restaurants here are the Tahitian Terrace Restaurant and River View Cafe. A jungle leaf is sold as souvenir in Professor Porter’s Trading Post.
Fantasyland is basically for children. You will find here the Sword in the Stone, Cinderella Carrousel, Winnie the Poohs adventures, Sleeping Beauty Castle, Mad Hatter Tea Cups, Dumbo the Flying Elephant and Snow White Grotto. Anyone may take a souvenir picture with Donald Duck, Mickey Mouse, and many other friends. There is an entertaining 3-D show in Mickeys PhilharMagic.
Lying on the magic carpet with Aladdin and smelling the flavored soup of Donald Duck may also do through the special eyeglasses. The Golden Mickeys at Disneys Storybook Theater is the most fantastic place to see. All Disney classics were adapted into a 25 minute musical drama. It is done by mixing acrobatics and special effects.
The Space Mountain ride is the most famous here in Tomorrowland. It is a thrilling ride, and not for the faint hearted. You will see twinkling stars while riding on a roller coaster. You could next try flying in a space capsule and fight against the aliens with a space gun inside the Buzz Lightyear Astro Blasters.
Ride the Orbitron if you want to hover and see the aerial view of Tomorrowland. It will prove to be a breathtaking ride. Do not miss the extravagant parade and beautiful fireworks just before the park closes for the night. Watching the fireworks is the best way to cap the night in Hong Kong Disneyland.
