HONG KONG — Hong Kong Disneyland is hiring 200 to 300 temporary staff to help cater to anticipated strong demand during the theme park's first summer season here, a spokeswoman said Tuesday.
The new employees will be assigned to food and drinks outlets, merchandise sales and park operations and be paid an hourly rate of HK$40-HK$50 (US$5.2-US$6.4; euro4.13-euro5.08), Hong Kong Disneyland spokeswoman Glendy Chu said.
"It's our first summer here and we anticipate high demand," she said.
The theme park, which now employs about 5,000 people, has said it counts on a larger number of visitors during July and August to counter lagging attendance since it opened in September.
Hong Kong Disneyland aims to attract 5.6 million visitors a year. It has not disclosed its attendance figures, saying they are commercially sensitive information.
