Disneyland Hong Kong Surpasses One Million Guests

Hong Kong -- More than one million guests have visited Disney's newest theme park in Hong Kong since its opening in September according to a statement released from Disney.

"When we build a resort, we do so with the expectation that it's a long-term asset lasting well beyond 50 years," says Disney Parks and Resorts Chairman Jay Rasulo. "The bottom-line is this: attendance is ramping up well, which continues to give us confidence that we are on track to achieve our long-term attendance goals."

The news release is in response to reports in China's media that claim that attendance is failing to meet expectations at the new theme park.

The company also reports that guests are giving the new Hong Kong Disneyland high marks for cleanliness, cast member friendliness, hotel experiences and entertainment on surveys conducted at the theme park.

Relying on positive guest feedback, Hong Kong Disneyland is already expanding and enhancing the park experience beyond today's top attractions, which include Buzz Lightyear's Astro Blasters, Mickey's PhilharMagic, Space Mountain and the Jungle River Cruise. The first major new attraction to be added to the park since its opening will be the long-time guest favorite Autopia, debuting in summer 2006 and featuring battery-powered vehicles traveling a whimsical highway.
