According to guest research, Iron Man Experience is now the most popular attraction at the park!


Celebrating the uniqueness of Hong Kong


7Hong Kong Disneyland also launches different themed stickers from time to time, which are fun to collect and serve as good tools to initiate conversations between cast members and guests. From now to October 31, 2017, cast members are distributing a limited edition set of 12 Hong Kong-themed stickers inspired by iconic local landmarks and cultural elements, such as the Tsing Ma Bridge, Victoria Harbour, the Clock Tower in Tsim Sha Tsui, a traditional “junk” boat, and the city’s famous red taxis. Since sticker distribution has become a unique aspect of Hong Kong Disneyland culture, guests can collect this whole series and let Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Daisy, Goofy, and Pluto take them on a Hong Kong adventure!

9Hong Kong Disneyland has teamed up with the Star Ferry to bring guests on a uniquely Hong Kong experience at sea. Guests from around the world can complete an all-terrain Hong Kong journey, exploring seven themed lands in the park and a refreshing experience riding on the “World Star” Ferry.
