Hong Kong Disneyland under construction (October 2004)
Hong Kong Disneyland under construction (October 2004)

In an effort to avoid cultural friction similar to what happened when Disneyland Resort Paris opened in France, Disney has taken efforts to make this new park reflect the local culture. The New York Times reported that feng shui consultants have helped with the layout of the park and the grounds. Incense was burned when the construction of each building was completed, and one of the main ballrooms is 888 square meters large, as eight is an auspicious number in Chinese culture, signifying fortune. The hotels will skip the number four when numbering of their floors because four is considered bad luck. Hong Kong Disneyland employees speak English, Cantonese, and Mandarin, and were trained at other Disney parks while their home park was being constructed.

If the park's first working year is successful financially, and both the government of Hong Kong and Disney see benefits, the Phase Two of construction will commence. (There is room for a 40% expansion.) Disney forums across the world wide web have been busy with rumours and ideas for the second phase, mainly made up of installing classic Disney attractions that were not built in the first phase. At launch, Hong Kong Disneyland was the smallest of any Disney parks. The most likely result of Phase Two will be a fifth land, probably Frontierland, Mickey's Toontown or less likely an original and unique land not built before at a previous park.

The government of Hong Kong has made it clear to the public and Disney that there is land next to the resort for a second theme park and several more hotels, but without a much higher price than what Disney paid for the land they already own, the government is liable to sell the land to one of Disney's theme park industry rivals. Names rumoured to be looking at the land feature NBC Universal, Six Flags and Anheuser Busch. Many view this move as a way of getting more money out of Disney, as the government does not actually want another company to build a separate theme park in the area.

According to the agreement of Walt Disney Company and the Government of Hong Kong, the land is reserved for the future development of the resort. However, currently no plans exist for Hong Kong Disneyland to open a second park in the resort.


Hotels

There are two hotels in the Resort, the five-star Hong Kong Disneyland Hotel and the four-star Disney's Hollywood Hotel, located on the seashore of the reclaimed land with about 1,000 rooms in total.[1] The Disneyland Hotel is the name of hotels at three of The Walt Disney Companys resorts across the globe. ...

Officials says they will fix a schedule for the construction of the third hotel based on the demand and will discuss details with the government later. However it will only be built in the coming few years because the site is currently using for the Asia-Pacific Litle League Regional Tournament which will last for another two years.[2]

Controversies

Shark fin soup controversy

Disney originally planned to serve shark fin soup, a traditional Chinese delicacy, at wedding banquets.[3] Animal rights groups protested in June 2005, citing the declining shark population in global waters and the cruel methods sometimes used of cutting the fin and discarding the live sharks back into the water. Shark fin soup A dried shark fin prepared for cooking Shark fins and other shark parts for sale in a Chinese pharmacy Shark fin soup (Chinese: 魚翅; Jyutping: jyu4 ci3, Mandarin: (Pinyin) Yú Chì / (Wade-Giles) Yü Chih4 ) is a Chinese delicacy commonly served as part of a Chinese feast...


At first, Disney removed shark fin soup from its menu but said it would still offer the soup if their clients insisted on having it served at their wedding. They said they would distribute leaflets about shark conservation to discourage the choice.[4] Shark fin soup A dried shark fin prepared for cooking Shark fins and other shark parts for sale in a Chinese pharmacy Shark fin soup (Chinese: 魚翅; Jyutping: jyu4 ci3, Mandarin: (Pinyin) Yú Chì / (Wade-Giles) Yü Chih4 ) is a Chinese delicacy commonly served as part of a Chinese feast...


However, after constant and continuous pressure from environmental groups and schoolchildren,[5] shareholders concerned about the company's image, Disney announced on 24 June 2005 that shark fin soup will not be served at all, because, according to their press release, "After careful consideration and a thorough review process, we were not able to identify an environmentally sustainable fishing source, leaving us no alternative except to remove shark's fin soup from our wedding banquet menu".[6] is the 175th day of the year (176th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

The performance of the resort

2005 - 2006: Performance for the first year

Since the opening of Hong Kong Disneyland in September 2005, most of the Hongkongers have been criticizing the size of the park and the attractiveness of the rides and attractions in the park. In addition, during Chinese New Year 2006, as many visitors from the mainland bore valid tickets but were refused to enter the park, some disgruntled visitors attempted to force their way into the park or gain access by climbing over the closed barrier gates. The reputation of the resort was tarnished by this incident. The park was unable to drag as many mainland visitors as it could in the coming Labour Day Holidays in May 2006 as the overcrowded scene was disappeared.


In order to boost the park attendance, Hong Kong Disneyland introduced Summer Passes in summer 2006 to attract more visitors. Each Summer passholder could visit the park unlimitedly throughout summer 2006 for just HK$450. The park also provided exclusive treats for the Summer Passholder in the summer holidays in order to encourage them to visit the park for a several times, such as extending the operating hours of Fantasyland for passholders and releasing limited pins for passholders to purchase. Apart from these, the park offered free tickets to the friends and family members of the cast members. Each cast member can invite a limited number of friends and family members to visit Disneyland every day during the summer. Although the park has sold more than 60,000 Summer Passes throughout summer 2006, the park has missed its target of 5.6 million in the first year of operation, with only about 5.2 million guests entered the park for the first year. The government did overestimate Hong Kong Disneyland's attendance numbers during the Asian Financial Crisis.[7] Rumour suggested that the relatively low-key celebration of the 1st Anniversary was due to the disappointing performance of the theme park. [8]


October 2006 - Present

Annual Passes were introduced and released by the Disney park in September 2006 after its success in selling 60,000 Summer Passes. The theme park also continued to lure more visitors by holding Disney's Halloween for the very first time in October 2006. However, the Halloween event could hardly help boosting the attendance, but the park plans to have a larger and better Disney's Haunted Halloween event this year with an exclusive new attraction called Main Street Haunted Hotel and a new night-time 7-float festive parade during the event period. Furthermore, Hong Kong Disneyland extended the length of most festive celebrations, such as Christmas and Chinese New Year, in the year of 2006 / 2007. It also introduced Pirate Takeover to celebrate the release of Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End from May 2007 throughout summer 2007. However, the Hong Kong park's attendance continued to be disappointing according to the Walt Disney Company's third-quarter performance released in August 2007. [9] In addition, the South China Morning Post estimated the attendance of Hong Kong Disneyland will only reach a mere 4 million in its second year, far lower than its first year of operation, citing unnamed sources. There of course, the SCMP's sources are still unknown, and some of its speculation is a bit overly optimistic. [10] In the first year, Hong Kong Disney purportedly missed its attendance target of 5.6 million by a mere 400,000. And that year the Park reported a loss of $363 million Hong Kong dollar (46.5 million USD). In the second year (2007), the Park reported a loss of $1.261 billion (161 million USD). If Hong Kong Disney were priced to break even in the first year, the expected per visitor spending at the park must be at least $906 Hong Kong ($116 USD). Assuming the same per visitor spending at the park for 2007, the park attracted about 4.2 million people. However, the most expensive full fare ticket one can purchase from Hong Kong Disney is just $350 HKD ($45 USD) [11]. Therefore, in all likelihood, Hong Kong Disney has attracted far fewer visitors than 4 million in 2007.

Other controversies

  • There have been widespread concerns in the media and by local watchdog groups of the inherent endangerment to children at the park. These concerns include the excessive violations of smoking by visitors in the designated non-smoking areas of the park. It has been reported that Disney employees have been very lax in enforcing any type of non-smoking policies out of fear of offending their customers. There have also been many reports of unsafe sanitation at the park, including some visitors [citation needed] urinating in the flowerbeds and near the food facilities. Local newspapers ran photo essays for days after the park opening showing this controversial behavior. Complaints have been made by visitors that despite witnessing such infractions, Disney employees did nothing to enforce any type of civic responsibility.[citation needed]
  • Fish around Ma Wan died as a result of land reclamation. [12]
  • When health officers came to inspect the facility after several reports of food poisoning, they were asked to remove their caps and badges. Although two of the officers did so, the department has taken offence.[13]
  • The official size of the entire development as released by the government was 1.26 km².[citation needed] Furthermore, the size of the first phase was reported to be only 700,000 m². However the area of just the Disneyland theme park portion, is estimated to be between 152,100 and 187,200 m². If it accommodates a maximum capacity of 30 000 visitors, the area per visitor would be 2.5 m² . The commercial area is divided into:
    • Theme Park: 325,700 m²
    • Hotels: 165,300 m²
    • Parking and Transit Hub: 171,900 m²
    • Inspiration Lake 300,000 m²

Ma Wan (Traditional Chinese: ) is an island of Hong Kong, located between Lantau Island and Tsing Yi Island. ... It has been suggested that Inspiration Lake Recreation Centre be merged into this article or section. ...
