The Week in Entertainment 2005

Disney celebrated the opening of Hong Kong Disneyland on Sept. 12, 2005. It is the fifth theme park and resort opened by the entertainment conglomerate globally and its second in Asia after Tokyo Disneyland, which opened in 1983. Then-Disney chief Michael Eisner, who stepped down later that year, and current leader Bob Iger were on hand for the festivities. The park is located at Penny’s Bay on Lantau Island. Disney was careful to incorporate Chinese culture and customs into the park’s design.
