Hong Kong Disneyland Resort
Since Hong Kong Disneyland Resort opened on September 12, 2005, it has entertained more than 50 million guests from Hong Kong, mainland China, Southeast Asia and farther abroad. As the first Disney resort in China, it features award-winning, first-of-its-kind entertainment offerings and guest services specially-designed for an international guest base, all brought to life by the resort’s multilingual Cast.
Three new themed lands have been added since opening: Toy Story Land, Grizzly Gulch and Mystic Point. In 2014, the state-of-the-art “Disney Paint the Night” parade launched. In 2015, new offerings opened to celebrate the 10th anniversary, like the “Mickey and the Wondrous Book” stage show, the walk-through Fairy Tale Forest attraction presented by PANDORA and the enhanced “Disney in the Stars” Fireworks with a castle projection show.

In 2014, the resort unveiled the first-of-its-kind “Disney Paint the Night” parade, a technologically advanced wonder that lights up the parade route every night with incredible colors. The parade immerses guests in luminescent worlds through seven creative floats featuring classic Disney and Disney•Pixar characters. This colorful feast for the eyes boasts more than 740,000 individual LED lights.
The “Happily Ever After” 10th anniversary lifted the curtain on “Mickey and the Wondrous Book,” the enhanced “Disney in the Stars” Fireworks and Fairy Tale Forest presented by PANDORA. These will be followed by the opening of Disney’s first Marvel-themed area in late 2016 with Iron Man Experience, a 3-D motion-based simulator attraction that allows guests to fight alongside Iron Man against the forces of evil across the streets and skies of Hong Kong.
Disney Explorers Lodge, the resort’s third hotel, will offer guests a uniquely Disney resort-style experience dedicated to the spirit of exploration. It will have 750 rooms once it opens in 2017, bringing the resort’s total to 1,750. The hotel will also showcase a variety of cultures from around the world.
In financial year 2015, we cooperated with 150 NGOs for various programs and services. We’ve also welcomed more than 100,000 underprivileged guests to the park. These include programs like the Hospital Play Service in support of hospitalized children and the Community Built Playground that lets children and family members have fun with natural materials. In addition, we helped nurture theme park and tourism expertise by supporting the Li Ka Shing Institute of Professional and Continuing Education of the Open University of Hong Kong to launch a two-year Higher Diploma in Resort and Theme Park Management.
In addition to the 7,800 Cast Members at Hong Kong Disneyland, a total of 20,900 jobs (in terms of man-years) were also created in financial year 2015, benefiting the city’s workforce in the travel and hospitality industry.
