Lo­cated ad­ja­cent to Penny's Bay on Lan­tau Is­land, Hong Kong Dis­ney­land is fully in­te­grated into Hong Kong's ex­cel­lent pub­lic tran­sit sys­tem. In ad­di­tion, Star Ferry of­fers daily trips from Tsim Sha Tsui Star Ferry pier in Kowloon with a jour­ney of about 45 min­utes on its newly re­fur­bished World Star boat.

Hong Kong Dis­ney­land it­self has three ho­tels, Hong Kong Dis­ney­land Ho­tel, Dis­ney's Hol­ly­wood Ho­tel and the newly opened Dis­ney Ex­plorer Lodge. There are also op­tions in the lo­cal area and in Hong Kong city.

The de­fin­i­tive name in theme parks,

Hong Kong Dis­ney­land opened in 2005 and al­though one of the small­est of the 12 Dis­ney parks it loses noth­ing of the pizazz. The sprawl­ing park is di­vided into seven ar­eas: Aven­ture­land, Griz­zly Gulch, Mys­tic Point, Toy Story Land, Fan­ta­sy­land, To­mor­row­land and Main Street, U.S.A, each in­clud­ing themed at­trac­tions, ac­tiv­i­ties and rides filled with ex­cite­ment and a host of fa­mous Dis­ney char­ac­ters new and old. Here's just a taste of some the things to see and do.

AT­TRAC­TION PICKS

Mys­tic Manor is the cen­tre­piece of Mys­tic Point and home to Lord Henry Mys­tic, a mem­ber of the Society of Ex­plor­ers and Ad­ven­tur­ers. The stun­ning at­trac­tion cre­ates a com­pelling en­vi­ron­ment filled with orig­i­nal char­ac­ters and haunt­ing mu­sic. Climb aboard one of Dis­ney's finest rides and see the arte­facts and cu­riosi­ties Lord Henry has col­lected from around the world come to life in this spec­tac­u­lar track­less ride sys­tem.

Found within Griz­zly Gulch is the Big Griz­zly Moun­tain Run­away Mine Cars; an ex­hil­a­rat­ing, high-speed, multi-di­rec­tion ter­rain coaster. The ride starts off as a pleas­ant scenic train ride but quickly de­vel­ops into a de­light­fully wild ride. Buckle up and watch out for the griz­zlies.

Hop onto Hyper­space Moun­tain and di­rectly into a Star Wars bat­tle. The ad­ven­ture be­gins as Ad­mi­ral Ack­bar briefs you on your mission: the Rebel Al­liance needs your help fly­ing a re­con­nais­sance ves­sel to sur­vey an Im­pe­rial Star De­stroyer spot­ted near Jakku. An elite X-wing squadron es­corts you into hyper­space but you ar­rive only to find your­self sur­rounded by a swarm of TIE fighters. It's a trap!

Bat­tle the evil forces of Hy­dra on the Iron Man Ex­pe­ri­ence. This is more than a ride, it's an im­mer­sion into the world of Tony Stark. More Su­per Hero ac­tion will be in­tro­duced from 14th June as part of the Marvel Su­per Hero Sum­mer!

EN­TER­TAIN­MENT PICKS

Meet Belle and the Beast, Cin­derella and Snow White at Sleep­ing Beauty Cas­tle, or Tinker­bell at Fairy Tale For­est and Sofia, Dis­ney's new­est roy­alty, and learn what it means to be a real princess near the Sto­ry­book Shoppe. For Marvel fans, the Marvel Su­per Hero Sum­mer gets you up

close and per­sonal with your favourite comic book heroes.

Head over to Ad­ven­ture­land for the Fes­ti­val of the Lion King. With per­for­mances through­out the day the show com­bines acrobatics, singing and vi­brant cos­tume theatre, en­act­ing scenes from the Lion King.

Join a clas­sic Dis­ney pa­rade at Main Street, U.S.A. Check out the sky-high cel­e­bra­tions at the Flights of Fan­tasy Pa­rade; join the fun of spring as Dis­ney Friends lead a spring­time cel­e­bra­tion; or un­leash your imag­i­na­tion when Mickey Mouse lights up the night with the pa­rade char­ac­ters and a pageant of mag­i­cal vi­sions in the Dis­ney Paint the Night Night-time Spec­tac­u­lar, fol­lowed by the iconic Dis­ney py­rotech­nics dis­play over the spires of the Sleep­ing Beauty Cas­tle. With 10 restau­rants, re­lax­ation ar­eas and day-long ac­tiv­i­ties, a day or two at Hong Kong Dis­ney­land is a cap­ti­vat­ing and mem­o­rable ex­pe­ri­ence for chil­dren of all ages.
