    Hong Kong Disneyland Gets Set to Drive to the Future

    Hong Kong Disneyland Gets Set to Drive to the Future
    on July 13
    Three new family attractions to offer more magic in Tomorrowland

    (HONG KONG, July 3, 2006) - Hong Kong Disneyland announced today that guests will soon experience more magic this summer as the Park unveils three new attractions in Tomorrowland - Autopia, Stitch Encounter and UFO Zone.

    From July 13, 2006, guests will be able to cruise along the highways of tomorrow in innovative electric cars in Autopia, talk in real time with the mischievous blue alien, Stitch, in an intimate theatre at Stitch Encounter, and cool off from the summer heat with the water spraying and squirting UFO Zone.

    A region-wide advertising campaign will provide a taste of the magic in store for guests at Tomorrowland from July 4.

    READY TO ROLL: Buzz Lightyear, who makes regular meet-and-greet and photo appearances with guests in Tomorrowland at Hong Kong Disneyland, watches closely as cast members (Disney parlance for employees) put the final touches on the convertible scale model cars at Autopia, the newest Tomorrowland attraction at Hong Kong Disneyland.

    Buzz Lightyear, who stars in the adjacent attraction, Buzz Lightyear Astro Blasters, is the popular character made famous in "Toy Story" and "Toy Story 2," both Walt Disney Pictures presentations of Pixar Animation Studios films.

    Tomorrowland at Hong Kong Disneyland has been expanded this summer with the addition of Autopia, Stitch Encounter and UFO Zone. The three attractions will open to guests July 13, 2006.

    STITCH SPOTS HIS NEW HOME AT HONG KONG DISNEYLAND: The tiny and talkative alien known as "Stitch" spots the gleaming spires of Sleeping Beauty Castle at Hong Kong Disneyland on his space cruiser's radar screen.

    With the help of young park guests, the animated Stitch sets the coordinates of his spaceship for a "landing" in Tomorrowland as he prepares for the July 13, 2006 Grand Opening of his new attraction, Stitch Encounter.

    The blue alien, who debuted in Disney's hit animated comedy "Lilo & Stitch," stars in the new cutting-edge attraction where park guests, seated in an intimate theatre, carry on real-time conversations with the famous animated character.

    The jaw-dropping technology allows for Disney fun like never before - Guests visiting the Space Traffic Control Center discover Stitch, aka "Experiment 626," tuned in on the Center's massive video screen. Stitch can talk to guests, play games and interact with them in surprising new ways. Stitch Encounter will be presented daily in three languages - Cantonese, English and Putonghua.

    Hong Kong Disneyland is the first and only Disney theme park in the world where guests can experience Stitch Encounter.

    SPLASH-TASTIC FUN: An alien oasis in the heart of Tomorrowland, the new UFO Zone (which stands for "Unbelievably Fun Objects") delights Hong Kong Disneyland guests amidst a futuristic spaceport where keeping cool is the number one rule. Water-full good times are always on tap whether guests want to get soaked or just enjoy a little sprinkling to keep cool from the Hong Kong sun.

    Bathed in bright colors, UFO Zone is an interactive, alien landscape replete with splash-tastic fun bursting from water pop jets, bubblers, misters, thrusters and quirky squirters. Outer space sound effects combine with water effects to provide even more H2O-hijinks.
    UFO Zone is just one part of a Tomorrowland expansion taking place at Hong Kong Disneyland. In addition, guests this summer are able to enjoy new attractions including Autopia, an outer space-themed, automobile driving attraction and Stitch Encounter, an intimate theatre featuring an immersive adventure into the wacky world of the tiny blue alien, Experiment 626, aka Stitch.

    Buzz Lightyear, who makes regular meet-and-greet and photo appearances with guests in Tomorrowland at Hong Kong Disneyland, watches closely as cast members (Disney parlance for employees) Janet Ho and Marcus Yeung put the final touches on the convertible scale model cars at Autopia, the newest Tomorrowland attraction at Hong Kong Disneyland.

    I can't wait to see both IASW and Autopia on my next visit. I really think HKDL is a beautiful park. Glad to see that they are fixing the one main flaw, the lack of rides and other attractions.
