Yesterday, over 4,000 people gathered on Main Street for an anniversary photo op in Hong Kong Disneyland to celebrate the park’s 5th birthday. Popular with locals, a recent survey of residents found that two-thirds of those surveyed have visited the park since its opening in 2005, and on average have visited about three times. Celebrating local patrons, international tourists, and the spirit of Disneyland Hong Kong great memories were made on the anniversary with a party to remember.
Not only were families treated to a private party & breakfast in Tomorrowland but Bill Ernest, President and Managing Director, Asia for Walt Disney Parks and Resorts presented a gift from the Walt Disney Company of one million Hong Kong dollars as a scholarship grant to the Vocational Training Council of Hong Kong. The scholarships will benefit students in the hospitality, tourism, design, and entertainment fields.
“It’s great to think about the positive impact to the many students, their future dreams and consider they could be fellow cast members in future years.” (-Disney Parks Blog)
