The emptiness of Hong Kong Disneyland belies the beauty of the resort it occupies. Seven years after opening, the park still does not have a full complement of familiar Disney attractions. While Tomorrowland provides a robust ride lineup, key pieces are still missing from the other lands. Although the park is easily accessible via subway and continues to add attractions, it still is not drawing big crowds year-round. The vast majority of the rides can be enjoyed by the whole family. The newest coaster, Big Grizzly Mountain Runaway Mine Cars, resembles the love child of Big Thunder Mountain and Expedition Everest. The park provides typical meet and greets with the popular Disney characters. The Royal Banquet Hall in Fantasyland offers a variety of food styles in one place. Some of the standout attractions are the Jungle River Cruise (which includes fire) and It's a Small World (with embedded Disney characters). Only a few rides currently use Fast Pass, but a few also have Single Rider lines.
Although it has a ways to go yet, Hong Kong Disneyland is a charming mini-Magic Kingdom and is steadily improving. The addition of Big Grizzly Mountain this year gave the park another much-needed E-ticket attraction, and Mystic Manor promises to be another excellent addition. That being said, the park isn't quite a full-day experience. But what it has is quite good, and the future looks promising--I especially like their take on the Jungle Cruise, and their new Toy Story land is quite well done. Definitely a park that bears watching.
Hong Kong Disneyland was my first positive Disney experience. Overall, I was very impressed and had a lot of fun. Space Mountain was particularly good, and I loved the detail in Main Street and Fantasy Land. I'm sure the park will be excellent once the expansions are complete. For now, it is a bit lacking in terms of attractions, but overall it is a very nice park.
