Where the Disney Gallery, (previously Bank of Main Street) is in Disneyland, Ca.(DL), is the Animation Ancademy at Hong Kong Disneyland. Here you can learn to draw Disney Characters, similar to the Attraction found In the Animation Building in Disney’s California Adventure.

The Hong Kong Disneyland band makes several appearances throughout the day, as well as being part of the daily Parade. Also notice the crane in the background which is being used for construction on the upcoming Iron Man Attraction

The mountains that surround the Park add natural beauty to the central plaza and makes a perfect back drop for Sleeping Beauty’s Castle.

Because the park does not have a “Partners” statue, (Yet?), they have different decorations/icons here depending on the time of year or themed to the most current Park event. This year is a glitzy sliver Mickey which lights up at night to continue the theme of “Paint the Night”.

    No flagpole? No Chinese flag(s)?

    Great article!!! I love the cement sidewalks on Main Street. Too bad Anaheim Disneyland doesn’t bring those back. I don’t like the paving stone streets, though. I notice there are no streetcar tracks. Otherwise, it looks just like Anaheim, except not so overgrown with trees, and there are mountains in the distance. Kind of like a parallel universe. It looks like there is a gazebo similar to the old Plaza Gardens. The people look pretty slim, too.

      that’s how i felt when i was there in 2008. it’s a parallel universe. i grew up in socal with disneyland, and to see those mountains…all the trees…especially all the open land outside the park entrance…it’s amazing.

      plus the autopia cars are electric yet they mimic the vibrations and sounds of the original gas models!

  • Whitney Thomas

    Are those prominent drain pipes on the front of the train station????!!!!

  • robbiem

    Great article. It’s interesting to see something so familiar and yet different.

    with that mountain backdrop it looks like Hong Kong has the prettiest setting of any disney resort.

    Can’t wait for part 4

  • LoveStallion

    Searching the site, can’t find parts 1 & 2. What gives?

    I’d love to visit HKD and love that they have created original rides for it. Bring Mystic Manor to DCA!

    There are links to the first two parts in the red, italicized text at the beginning of the article.
