Customers on Tuesday snapped up tickets for a charity day at Hong Kong Disneyland within hours of their sales on the Internet, Disney officials said.

All tickets for the charity day set for Sept. 4 were sold out within the first three hours of their online sales Tuesday, Disney said in a statement. It didn't say how many tickets were sold.

The response from the public to the ticket sales has been overwhelming and demonstrates tremendous support for both the local community and for Hong Kong Disneyland," said Hong Kong Disneyland Group Managing Director Don Robinson.

He said all the ticket proceeds will be donated to local charity group, the Community Chest, which raises money for social welfare agencies.
