Hong Kong Disneyland

Hong Kong Disneyland

Hong Kong Disneyland opened September 12, 2005 and drew 5.7 million visitors in 2019, narrowly beating Walt Disney Studios in Paris as Disney's least-attended theme park. But Disney is expanding Hong Kong Disneyland to attraction more visitors, most recently expanding its Sleeping Beauty Castle into the Castle of Magical Dreams, themed to 13 Disney queens and princesses, with a Royal Reception Hall meet and greet within.
