9 Themed Attractions in Hong Kong Disneyland Resort

Main Street, U.S.A.
This themed area is the first you'll see as soon as you enter Hong Kong Disneyland. It's the same with all other Disney's themed parks.

The theme is a small-town America from the years 1890-1910. The one in Hong Kong is almost identical to that of Anaheim in California, the only difference is that the first was strongly influenced by European immigrants and it's made of wood instead of stone. You'll find many restaurants along the sidewalks, like Plaza Inn, Market House Bakery, etc. It's where all the souvenir shops are also located, I think they do that to entice to visitors to buy, specially for family with little kids. I find it expensive, though, so I didn't buy 😀.

Fantasyland features Sleeping Beauty Castle as its icon. It also has several attractions based on classic Disney movies such as The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, Dumbo the Flying Elephant, and Cinderella's Carousel. There is also Fantasy Gardens where costumed Disney characters can be met.

Hong Kong Disneyland's Adventureland is the biggest among all Disney parks. It features a large island area home to Tarzan's Treehouse, which is circled by the Jungle Cruise (Jungle River Cruise) — much like the Rivers of America in most Frontierland theme areas. The Adventureland is also home to the "Festival of the Lion King" show.

Tomorrowland at Hong Kong Disneyland features an emphasis on metallic trim, dominated by blue and purple hues. Since the opening of the park, unique attractions have been added into the Hong Kong's Tomorrowland, such as a new Autopia and Stitch Encounter. The first ever Marvel attraction in a Disney theme park, The Iron Man Experience has opened on 11 January 2017, in an area previously envisioned for a Star Tours-type attraction.

Toy Story Land
Opened 18 November 2011, Toy Story Land is the first new themed land since the opening of Hong Kong Disneyland in 2005. It is located to the west side of the park, behind Fantasyland. Toy Story Land is themed using bamboo to act as giant blades of grass surrounding the area. The themed land makes use of characters from the Toy Story movies, such as an enlarged Woody, Rex, an oversized paper plane, and Luxo Jr.

Toy Story Land has been marketed by the park as "Asia exclusive", since its only counterpart, Toy Story Playland, is located at Walt Disney Studios Park in Marne-la-Vallée, France.

Grizzly Gulch
Opened on 14 July 2012, this land is the Hong Kong equivalent of Frontierland and Critter Country. The themed land reminisces an abandoned mining town called "Grizzly Gulch", set amidst mountains and woods. The centrepiece structure is Big Grizzly Mountain Runaway Mine Cars, inspired by Grizzly Peak in Disney California Adventure Park. The town was set to be founded 8 August 1888 — the luckiest day of the luckiest month of the luckiest year — by prospectors looking to discover gold.

Mystic Point
Opened on 17 May 2013, Mystic Point is a new themed land in Hong Kong Disneyland. It is also the final area opened in Hong Kong Disneyland's current expansion. It is set in 1909 at an adventurer's outpost established in 1896 in a dense, uncharted rain forest surrounded by mysterious forces and supernatural events. The site features Mystic Manor, home of Lord Henry Mystic, a world traveler and adventurer and his mischievous monkey, Albert.

Marvel Area
On 22 November 2016, it was announced that Tomorrowland would be transformed into a Marvel-themed area, as part of a massive six year expansion plan. This expansion would see the replacement of Buzz Lightyear Astro Blasters by an attraction with Marvel Heroes for 2018 and the construction, on the former Autopia site, of a major E-ticket attraction based on the Avengers franchise to be completed by 2023.

Frozen Land
A land behind Fantasyland will host two rides themed to the movie Frozen. Opening in 2020, Frozen Land is set in the fictional Kingdom of Arendelle. The land will feature two rides, a sled style ride, and a Frozen dark ride.

Hong Kong Disneyland has organised entertainment and a number of shows as part of the festive celebrations to attract more visitors, especially young adults.
