香港迪士尼童话王国(一)

2005-09-21 00:00

  Just after one o'clock on a steamy afternoon, hundreds of Chinese sprinted down Main St, U.S.A., past the Corner Cafe and Sweet Store in their Disney T-shirts and caps, gripping their cameras.

  Too rushed to talk, they ran through the heat of a Hong Kong summer's day, to the hottest ride in town — Space Mountain in Tomorrowland — just minutes after Disneyland flung open its gates in its first foray into the massive China market.

  Not to be outdone, I followed them and after entering the darkness of the ride, and spinning through a starry night with meteors, I emerged dizzy and disorientated.

  In the haze outside, Chinese were taking pictures in front of every monument —— there they were beside the sold-out sign, Disney lampposts and Mickey Mouse bobbing up and down on a fountain at the main entrance.

  Among the crowds was Pang Hao, a 31-year-old businessman who had come across the border from the city of Shenzhen. He was visiting with his wife and another couple, and he is exactly the kind of "guest" Disney and Hong Kong is looking for.

  For U.S.-based Disney, Hong Kong is a launch pad into the world's most populous nation and fastest-growing market, and a huge play on China's burgeoning middle class.
