Hong Kong Disneyland Resort said today profits grew to HK$332 million last year, representing an increase of 36 percent over the previous year. The theme park operator, in which the Hong Kong Government owns 52 percent, said revenue reached a record HK$5.46 billion, up by 12 percent.
Attendance and guest spending were also at record levels, the theme park operator said today. Attendance reached 7.5 million in 2014.
Managing Director Andrew Kam noted that the “three new themed areas — Toy Story Land, Grizzly Gulch and Mystic Point — and the recently-launched ‘Disney Paint the Night’ nighttime spectacular have truly strengthened the appeal of HKDL as a world-class tourist destination.”
In January, Hong Kong Disneyland broke ground on the resort’s third hotel, Disney Explorers Lodge, marking another exciting milestone in the resort’s development as a world-class travel destination. The 750-room hotel is slated to open in early 2017, and will embody stories from the grand era of exploration and adventure in the 1920s. Inspired by explorer’s travels to an African savannah, a South American rainforest and a Polynesian island paradise, the resort will allow guest to discover the exotic cultures and the natural beauty of Asia.
Debuting at Hong Kong Disneyland in 2016, guests can experience the very first Disney attraction based on a character in the Iron Man Experience. Located in Tomorrowland, the Iron Man experience will allow guests to see firsthand the progression of Tony’s Iron Man suits and many other Stark innovations in Expo format. The super-charged attraction will take guests on an epic adventure against the forces of evil over the streets and in the skies of Hong Kong. In addition, guest will have the opportunity to meet the man, the myth, the legend himself: Iron Man.
And coming up this year, Hong Kong Disneyland will celebrate its 10th Anniversary! There are lots of surprises in store and, along with all these expansions and enhancements, Hong Kong Disneyland is sure to continue to strengthen its positioning as the premier vacation destination in Hong Kong.
