Hello and Welcome to my Hong Kong Disneyland resort photo tour.
If you were wondering what Hong Kong Disneyland Resort is like, or if you think you will never ever get to Hong Kong, then this photo tour will give you a fair idea of what Hong Kong Disneyland looks like. I hope you enjoy the detail and themeing that this resort has to offer. I’m trying to use best photos I have for this tour, taken 7th May 2009 and 17th & 18th May 2011.
Hong Kong Disneyland is known to be “small” having only four lands, Main Street USA, Tomorrowland, Adventureland and Fantasyland and even those lands do not have all the attractions that are expected in the USA parks. The great news is that there are three NEW lands being constructed and will be completed by 2014!! Toy Story Land to be completed in 2012, Mystic Point and Grizzly Gulch, (photo’s and much more on that later). The Resort has two hotels, the Hong Kong Disneyland Hotel and the Disney’s Hollywood hotel. There is a Waterfront Promenade, a Park Promenade and Inspiration Lake. Photo’s of them all later.
Can you do Hong Kong Disneyland all in one day? I’d say No, but you should be able to do it all in two days comfortably.
So sit back and enjoy a photo tour of Hong Kong Disneyland.

The tour begins with the entry area. If you arrive by Taxi, Train, Car or Bus youll come through this area to get to Hong Kong Disneyland Park.

OK, so that's the Entry area, some night shots later.
Next posts is Town Square in Main Street USA.
You can get into Main Street before the park official opening time and it is a great time to take some photos and get to the rope drop area for the Official Opening. Coming out of the left hand tunnel.

A quick look at the guide maps
A closer look at whats in Main Street, USA
The Disneyland Fire department. You can see a few horse bridles but no fire truck or horses. The Fire department is used for renting out Strollers and Wheelchairs.
Here is a picture of one of many hand sanitizers around the park.
The man in the background is smoking in one of the few smoking areas in the park.
OK, Now entering Town Square from the right hand side tunnel.
I see another poster
The Royal Banquet Hall
This building is the Professional Building which is home to the ANIMATION ACADEMY, (#3 in Guide map) where you learn to draw your favorite Disney characters. Shows are performed in Cantonese.
The Opera house is home to ART of ANIMATION (#4 in Guide Map)
A detail on the window
These temporary drawings appeared on the footpath in the afternoon, they were not there this morning.
Detail of poster on front of the Opera House
Inside the ART of ANIMATION is the Toy Story Zoetrope which spins at high speed and with a strobe light has an amazing effect. This photo doesn't do it justice.
There are a few pieces of art displayed.
