Lands of Hong Kong Disneyland
Main Street, U.S.A.
The first theme park of Hong Kong Disneyland may be “American street”. When you walk into the street, you will be amazed by the exquisite buildings, dim gas lights and water trucks. Antique taxis, railroads and town halls take you back to the United States in the early 20th century. There are also Chinese elements here. Plaza Hotel is the first Chinese restaurant in the main street. The bakery and Corner Cafe are good places for you.
Hong Kong Disneyland’s Adventureland is the largest of all Disneyland parks. There is a large island area, the site of Tarzan’s Treehouse,, surrounded by jungle Cruises (Jungle River Cruises) – much like the American rivers in most frontier theme areas. The place of adventure is also the host of the Lion King Festival.
The Fantasyland is marked by Sleeping Beauty Castle. It also has some Disney movie based attractions, such as the adventures of Winnie the Pooh, the flying elephant, the little world and Cinderella’s merry go round. There are also fantasy gardens, where you can meet characters in Disney costumes, as well as a Fairy Tale Forest.
Tomorrowland at Hong Kong Disneyland features an emphasis on metallic trim, dominated by blue and purple hues. Since the opening of the park, unique attractions have been added into the Hong Kong’s Tomorrowland, such as a new Autopia and Stitch Encounter. The first ever Marvel attraction in a Disney theme park, The Iron Man Experience, opened on 11 January 2017 in an area previously envisioned for a Star Tours-type attraction. The land also featured Buzz Lightyear Astro Blasters on opening day, but that was replaced with Ant-Man and The Wasp: Nano Battle!, which opened on 31 March 2019.
Toy Story Land
Toy Story Land is the first new themed land since the opening of Hong Kong Disneyland in 2005. It is located to the west side of the park, behind Fantasyland. Toy Story Land is themed using bamboo to act as giant blades of grass surrounding the area. The themed land makes use of characters from the Toy Story movies, such as an enlarged Woody, Rex, an oversized paper plane, and Luxo Jr.
Toy Story Land was marketed by the park as “Asia exclusive”. For some time its only counterpart, Toy Story Playland, is located at Walt Disney Studios Park in Marne-la-Vallée, France. Since Toy Story Land became popular at this park, it will become more common. One at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Orlando opened in June 2018, and one in Shanghai Disneyland opened even earlier.
This land is the Hong Kong equivalent of Frontierland and Critter Country. The themed land reminisces an abandoned mining town called “Grizzly Gulch”, set amidst mountains and woods. The centrepiece structure is Big Grizzly Mountain Runaway Mine Cars, inspired by Grizzly Peak in Disney California Adventure Park. The town was set to be founded 8 August 1888 — the luckiest day of the luckiest month of the luckiest year — by prospectors looking to discover gold.
