Fans flood Hong Kong Disneyland

Park reached capacity on Monday and Tuesday

Hong Kong Disneyland locked its doors two days running after selling out over the Chinese New Year holiday.

Park reached its 30,000-visitor capacity on Monday and Tuesday, thanks to a combination of good weather and an influx of mainland Chinese tourists, many of whom are beginning a two-week break from work.

The figures will bring some relief to embattled park managers. Hong Kong Disneyland has been criticized for public-relations gaffes and low attendance.

Since its September launch, the park has sold out on two other occasions — Dec. 13, during the World Trade Organization ministerial conference, and on Christmas Day.

Park comes under intense media scrutiny as it is majority owned by Hong Kong taxpayers.

The departure of managing director Don Robinson four months after opening also added to local speculation about the park’s performance.
