We visited Hong Kong Disneyland on our winter getaway to Hong Kong and Macau. Despite the short trip, we had so much fun in ‘The Happiest Place on Earth‘, and we’ve made this guide to help you plan your own adventure soon.
Opened on 12 Sep 2005, the massive 310-acre integrated resort and theme park in Hong Kong’s Lantau Island is so famous that it attracts millions of visitors worldwide. What sets Hong Kong Disneyland apart from other Disneyland theme parks is that it is fairly easy to navigate with its own subway line.
Read on for everything you need to know about Hong Kong Disneyland, from the tickets to top attractions, and friendly tips.

Top Hong Kong Disneyland rides and attractions
This famous theme park in Hong Kong is so huge that you’ll surely be at a loss for what to do first. So, we’ve rounded up the top Hong Kong Disneyland attractions spread across the different themed lands:
Castle of Magical Dreams
Open for all ages, the Castle of Magical Dreams is easily the top attraction in HK Disneyland. No trip to Disney would be complete without striking a pose at this iconic structure. The stage in front of the Hong Kong Disneyland castle also hosts some shows featuring your best-loved Disney characters.
We didn’t catch any show when we went there, though, but this is something we’ll look forward to when we’re back.
Feel like a true Disney princess aboard the Cinderella Carousel. Hop on one of the wooden-carved horses as you gently spin around in a counter-clockwise direction. It turns even more magical at night!
This is another quintessential Hong Kong Disneyland experience you should not miss. We didn’t get the chance to ride this merry-go-round but we’ll do next time.
Follow Tarzan’s adventure as you ride the log raft, climb a wooden staircase, and cross a suspension bridge until you reach Tarzan’s Treehouse.
It’s by far the most immersive attraction we’ve tried at Hong Kong Disneyland. We almost skipped it because of the long queue, but it was worth it!
Jungle River Cruise
Your jungle adventure doesn’t end at Tarzan’s Treehouse. Hop aboard the Jungle River Cruise that’ll take you on an exciting journey along a tropical river where you’ll spot gorillas, elephants, hippos, and more! They aren’t real, of course, but everything seems true to life.
This is another top HK Disneyland attraction we can’t wait to try next time around.
Ever wondered what it feels like to be an X-wing starfighter pilot? Warp into the world of Star Wars with this Hyperspace Mountain train ride. Go through hyperdrive and join the rebel alliance in blasting those imperial fighters. May the force be with you!
We really got curious about this ride, but we didn’t dare to try it because we are extremely sensitive to light and motion, and we’re afraid that we might not end up getting dizzy.
Toy Story Land
This may look like your common Anchor’s Away ride in Enchanted Kingdom, but make no mistake as this giant RC Racer swings like it’s going to blast you off to space. May the force still be with you on this ride.
Big Grizzly Mountain Runaway Mine Cars
This is a milder version of a roller coaster that lets you experience what it’s like riding a minecart going in and out of the mining tunnels. This golden experience is worth a try!
If you love traveling the world, we recommend that you enter the Mystic Manor where you’ll discover a collection of artifacts from around the world by Lord Henry Mystic. These include Egyptian antiquities, musical instruments, tribal arts, and more. It’s as if you’re treasure-hunting around the globe!
Main Street, USA
Main Street Vehicles
Take a trip down memory lane on any of the vintage Main Street Vehicles such as the omnibus, Main Street taxi (horseless carriage) and paddy wagon (police car). As you ride your vintage vehicle of choice, you’ll pass by a replica of the old Main Street, U.S.A. lined with Victorian-themed shops and restaurants.
New: World of Frozen
The World of Frozen is the newest attraction in HK Disneyland set to open on 20 November 2023. It is the first and largest “Frozen” themed land in the world, and we can’t wait to see what’s in store for everyone here!
Hong Kong Disneyland shows to watch out for
Hong Kong Disneyland Parade
Of course, no trip to Disneyland would be complete without watching the famous Disney Parade where you’ll be entertained by your favorite Disney characters like Mickey and Friends. We waited for the parade in the afternoon, and it was worth it. We really felt like we were kids again!
The parade usually happens every 2pm and 5.45 pm, but be sure to check their updated event schedule.
“Momentous” Nighttime Spectacular
As a grand finale to your Disney experience, wait for the “Momentous” Nighttime Spectacular at 9pm. Never leave Disneyland Hong Kong without witnessing this magical lights and fireworks display. You deserve total happiness at the ‘Happiest Place on Earth’, after all!
These are just some of the many HK Disneyland attractions. Feel free to check the rest at your own time and pace.
