The main features here are:
Navigating through the Park Entrance is in itself an attraction. First you come to the main gate, where Mickey greets all arriving visitors:
Next up is the entrance fountain. Here you see Mickey surfing on top of a whale waterspout which leaves you debating whether this is the whale from Pinochio or perhaps Finding Nemo?
If you already have your tickets you can proceed to the Entrance, otherwise, stop at the Ticket windows.
Before entering the park there is also a Guest Services desk on your left, there are ATM machines and luggage storage services available.
Also you will go through a bag security check prior to admission.
First thing you see upon entering the park as in all other Disney parks, is the Railroad Station which sits above the Park Entrance.
The Railroad is a "regular" at all Disney parks and one of the best ways to get an overview of the entire complex. The Railroad goes through all the "lands" and gives you the grand circle tour of the grounds.
Besides the Main Street Station, there is another stop at the Fantasyland Station, which makes it convenient to get to the very back of the park. Otherwise take the full circle tour and end back at Main Street.
Just accross from the Railroad Station is the Town Square and the start of Main Street.
City Hall is at the heart of the Town Square on your left.
Town Square and City Hall are the Guest Services Hub where you find everything you need from changing money, ATM machines, Lost and Found, and the stroller and wheelchair rental as well.
Make sure you pick up a Park Guide Map and a Times Guide to check show and parades times. They are provided in several different languages.
At Guest Services at City Hall you can also make reservations for the many restaurants in the park.
The Baby Care Center and Lost Children are found at the other end of Main Street at the Plaza and next to the Corner Cafe. The Baby Care Center is equipped with diaper-changing, bottle warming and feeding room facilities. Baby food and formula is also available.
Although Main Street is considered one of Disneyland's "lands", there really aren't many attractions per se. The attraction is in the charming little stores and cafes that line this turn of the 20th century avenue.
There are no horse-drawn carriages at Disney Hong Kong as in the other parks but you can cruise up and down Main Street on one of the old-style motorized vehicles. The Main Street Vehicles leave from the Town Square.
Opposite the City Hall is the Opera House, which houses Art of Animation and next to it is Animation Academy.
At Animation Academy you can learn how to draw Disney Characters. A Disney animator conducts the step-by-step sessions and you get to take home your work of art!
At the Art of Animation you learn how animation is born from sketches and drawings, and how it all comes together in the movies. It features the Toy Story Zoetrope to demonstrate a series of images all put together to create the sense of motion.
Main Street USA is also in the daily Flights of Fantasy Parade Route, and is a good place to watch the Disney in the Stars Fireworks every night with the Castle in the background.
The Fireworks Spectacular is a dazzling array of laser, multimedia, music and pyrothecnics, all beautifully coreographed with favourite Disney themes playing, it is quite impressive as it should be considering where fireworks originated from! Enjoy!
