Hong Kong Disneyland, the fifth Magic Kingdom-style theme park, is located on reclaimed land in Penny’s Bay, Lantau Island. After years of negotiations and construction, the park opened to visitors on September 12, 2005, considered an auspicious date according to Chinese almanacs for the opening of a new business. Disney attempted to avoid problems of cultural backlash by attempting to incorporate Chinese culture, customs, and traditions when designing and building the resort, including adherence to the rules of Feng Shui. For instance, a bend was put in a walkway near the Hong Kong Disneyland Resort entrance so good “chi” energy wouldn’t flow into the South China Sea.
The park consists of four themed lands similar to other Disneyland parks: Main Street, U.S.A., Fantasyland, Adventureland and Tomorrowland. The theme park’s cast members use English and Chinese, including Cantonese and Mandarin dialects, to communicate verbally. Guide maps are printed in traditional and simplified Chinese as well as English, French, and Japanese.
