The Hong Kong Disneyland Ticket Express at Hong Kong Station is also the only location where guests can purchase an exclusively-designed MTR Disneyland Resort Line 1-Day Pass, offering unlimited rides on the MTR (Airport Express not included) where each journey begins or ends at Disneyland Resort Station.

There are a total of four collectible versions with unique designs of the whimsical Disneyland Resort Line Train and loveable Disney friends, Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck and Goofy.

"The Hong Kong Disneyland Ticket Express provides our guests with an easy convenient way to collect and purchase park tickets as they prepare for a magical day at Hong Kong Disneyland," Mr Don Robinson, Hong Kong Disneyland Group Managing Director said. "The Central location also provides our guests with the best access to the MTR - the fastest, most efficient way to reach Hong Kong Disneyland."

Mr C K Chow, Chief Executive Officer of the MTR Corporation said, "The excitement begins right here, at MTR Hong Kong Station where guests take the Tung Chung Line directly to Sunny Bay Station where they can walk right onto the whimsical Disney-themed trains to Disneyland."

"More than 10 thousand visitors a day have tried out the uniquely decorated trains since we opened the Disneyland Resort Line on 1 August and we look forward to taking even more theme park visitors on a ride to remember when Disneyland officially opens on 12 September," Mr Chow added.

The Hong Kong Disneyland Ticket Express is the sixth ticket distribution channel available for guests to purchase tickets.

About Hong Kong Disneyland
The Hong Kong Disneyland project was announced in 1999 as a venture between The Walt Disney Company and the Hong Kong SAR Government. With the completion of reclamation for Hong Kong Disneyland Phase I by the Hong Kong SAR Government, theme park and resort construction began in January 2003, with the project now scheduled to open on 12th September, 2005. At opening day, Hong Kong Disneyland will comprise a theme park and two Disney-themed hotels.

The Phase I build-out includes a projected 10 million annual visitor Disneyland-style theme park, 2,100 hotel rooms, and an area for retail, dining and entertainment. The project is estimated to create 18,000 new jobs at opening (both Disney and other employment) growing to 36,000 once the first park reaches build-out. The Hong Kong SAR Government estimated that the first phase of the project will generate a present economic value of HK$148 billion (US$19 billion) in benefits to Hong Kong over a 40-year period.
