On Monday 12th September 2005 Disneyland opened its 126 hectare site at Lantau Island Hong Kong. May and I went there in October.
It might be the smallest of all the Disneyland parks, but we enjoyed it very much.
The magic begins even before you get there. There is a new Mickey Mouse train with Mickey shaped windows, which runs from the newly opened Sunny Bay station on the MTR from Hong Kong Central.

Disneyland Hong Kong features four themed lands similar to those at other Disney parks: Main Street U.S.A., Adventureland, Fantasyland, and Tomorrowland. It also features a daily parade and nightly fireworks.

All the characters are there and are happy to have their photos taken with you, although you will have to join a queue to have your picture taken with the most popular characters such as Mickey and Minnie Mouse. There was no queue for this beautiful picture of May and Snow White, (top of page).

There are not so many white knuckle rides, although there is Space Mountain, an enclosed 'in the dark' roller coaster. Most of the rides are more gentle like the Cinderella Carousel, which is a beautifully constructed fairground galloper.

I don't think I would make the journey all the way to Hong Kong just to visit Disneyland, but if you are going to Hong Kong anyway, I'd certainly not miss it.
