The Hong Kong Disneyland Railroad will resume services on November 17 after being closed for nearly five years during the theme park’s expansion work. The train will take passengers on 20-minute trips across the park every 5-15 minutes, and will make stops at Fantasyland and Main Street U.S.A.
The railroad was closed in February 2019 when the park started construction on the highly anticipated World of Frozen — the first dedicated attraction in the world based on Disney’s popular Frozen animation films, which will open on November 20. The park is offering visitors a special ride on the train on the afternoon of November 15.
The railroad comprises two trains — the Walt train and the Disney train — with five passenger cars each that take passengers on journeys across Hong Kong Disneyland that give them views of Adventureland, Fantasyland, Tomorrowland, and Main Street, U.S.A. The park has three locomotives inspired by those that rode the rails of America in the late 1800s, and are each named after key members of The Walt Disney Company family.
Recently, Hong Kong Disneyland put up a 10-metre-tall Olaf installation that will be at the Hong Kong Observation Wheel until November 15 to celebrate the opening of World of Frozen. The park will also be open seven days a week, from November 15 to January 2, as opposed to its usual six-day-a-week schedule.
The theme park recently increased the prices of its one-day tickets and annual passes, and introduced a new ticket for what it considers “popular days”. However, Hong Kong residents can still buy these tickets and passes at the old rates until November 15. Other first-time park happenings include the Asia debut of Ms. Marvel at Hong Kong Disneyland in the run-up to the release of the film The Marvels on November 8.
