HK059MS-05

Hong Kong Disneyland  is located on reclaimed land in Penny's Bay, Lantau Island. The park opened to visitors on 12 September 2005. It is the first theme park located inside the Hong Kong Disneyland Resort and is owned and managed by the Hong Kong International Theme Parks.

When the park initially opened, it consisted of four classic themed areas: Main Street, U.S.A., Adventureland, Fantasyland, Tomorrowland (an optimistic vision of the future). The park has a daily capacity of 34,000 visitors — the least of all Disneyland parks.

To commemorated the Grand Opening of Hong Kong Disneyland, Hong Kong Post issued a series of 4 stamps and two souvenir sheets. The issued stamp depicts characters of Walt Disney’s film with background scene of Hong Kong Disneyland.

Inspired by the Main Street, U.S.A. in Disneyland, the buildings of this Main Street are almost identical to those in Anaheim. Like other Disney theme parks, Hong Kong Disneyland's Main Street, U.S.A. serves as the entrance of the park. The decor is small-town America from the years 1890-1910.

Main Street, U.S.A., designed to resemble an early 20th-century Midwest town. Unlike Main Streets from other parks, Main Street at Hong Kong Disneyland is built mainly of wood instead of stone. There are no horse-drawn streetcars, though tracks for the streetcars can be seen from the concept arts.
