HONG KONG, Dec. 14 /Xinhua-PRNewswire/ — Experiencing the magic of Hong Kong Disneyland will soon be easier than ever with the introduction of flexible date tickets. Starting January 3, 2006, guests may purchase non-date specific tickets and use them during a 6-month period following their purchase.
The new tickets are part of Hong Kong Disneyland’s commitment to making the guest experience as seamless and magical as possible, while allowing greater flexibility in planning a full day of fun at the park.
“Our parks are always evolving and we receive a steady stream of feedback which allows us to adapt in order to make a great experience even better. Our guests and travel industry partners around Asia have told us they want the opportunity to buy tickets that are not date specific. As a result, we’re happy to introduce new flexible tickets that will make planning a visit to Hong Kong Disneyland easier and more convenient,” said Roy Tan Hardy, Vice President, Marketing, Hong Kong Disneyland.
The Honorable Howard Young, Legislative Counselor representing Tourism Functional Constituency, said, “The new strategy enhances and widens the partnership with the tourism industry. I am confident it will bring win-win results.”
Hong Kong Disneyland will offer three types of park tickets (for more information, guests can visit hongkongdisneyland.com ):
Regular days — Monday – Friday
(Adults HK$295, Kids HK$210, Seniors HK$170)
Peak days — Weekend and certain vacation periods

Special days — Holidays or other date-specific special occasions
(e.g. Christmas Day, New Year’s Day and days during Chinese New Year and
Golden Week). Peak days and Special days (priced the same) are expected
to be very popular with guests.
Guests who purchase Regular day and Peak day tickets can visit the park on the same day type within six months of their ticket purchase. Guests who purchase Special day tickets will receive a date-specific ticket for their chosen date.
For guests who already have purchased date-specific tickets, they can exchange the original tickets for the new flexible tickets at Guest Relations window at the Main Gate at the front of Hong Kong Disneyland Park.
“This new ticket offering means our travel industry partners will be better able to provide options to Mainland China and overseas guests who will want flexibility when visiting Hong Kong Disneyland,” said Hardy.
