Hong Kong Disneyland announces
A Salute and Thank you to Hong Kong Residents


(HONG KONG, November 7, 2005) - Hong Kong Disneyland today launched a Salute to Hong Kong Residents to say a warm "thank you" to the community for its support. This announcement comes almost two months after Mickey Mouse and his friends officially opened the gates to the first-ever Disney theme park in China.

"We have been overwhelmed with the support the Hong Kong community has given us since we announced this project six years ago," said Roy Tan Hardy, Vice President of Marketing & Sales, Hong Kong Disneyland. "And since we opened our gates on September 12, we have received outstanding guest feedback on the magical experiences they are having with their friends and families at the park and hotels. Now, it's our time to say thank you to the Hong Kong community through this Salute to Hong Kong Residents."

The Salute to Hong Kong Residents invites local residents to enjoy the magic of Hong Kong Disneyland at a very special price. From November 8 to December 8, 2005, Hong Kong residents will get HK$50 off each ticket for a full day of fun at Hong Kong Disneyland. A regularly-priced adult ticket (guests 12 years of age and older) is HK$295 (regular) / HK$350 (peak); a child's ticket is HK$210 (regular) / HK$250 (peak) and seniors tickets are HK$170 (regular) and HK$200 (peak).

"Hong Kong Disneyland's early success could not have been achieved without the support of our friends and neighbors here in the park's new home. And now it is time to say thank you. After all, it is Hong Kong's Disneyland," said Hardy.

The Salute to Hong Kong Residents tickets are available at the main gate ticket windows in front of Hong Kong Disneyland Park and are available to Hong Kong residents with valid Hong Kong ID cards. Children aged 11 or below can enjoy the special offer when accompanied by a parent or guardian with a Hong Kong ID card, or by presenting their school handbook with their date of birth.

For guests who have pre-purchased tickets for this period, they can take their tickets to the main gate ticket windows at the front of Hong Kong Disneyland before entering the park to receive the HK$50 refund.
