The park features an East-meets-West theme, with a trademark Sleeping Beauty Castle and a Main Street that recreates small-town America. The food is distinctly Asian, catering to the masses of tourists Disney hopes to attract from across the border in mainland China.
Robert Iger, who takes over as Disney's CEO in October, told reporters he dreamed of going to Disneyland when he was a child.
"I'm convinced that the children of this region will have that same dream. They will dream of one day being able to come to Hong Kong Disneyland," Iger said.
The park plans to attract 5.6 million visitors a year and opening day on September 12 is already sold out, said Don Robinson, managing director of the Hong Kong Disneyland Group.
Robinson said 95 percent of the park is complete and that workers are rehearsing shows and testing rides.
