Hong Kong Disneyland to open early

HONG KONG -- Hong Kong Disneyland will open on Sept. 12, earlier than previously expected, Disney officials announced. The theme park was originally expected to open later in 2005 or in early 2006.

In keeping with local tradition, Disney officials consulted a feng shui expert in picking the date. Feng shui is the Chinese art of choosing dates and arranging the layout of objects to improve fortunes.

Ticket prices were also announced. Adults will be charged about $38 on weekends and public holidays, with a lower price on weekdays, the lowest price among Disney's parks around the world. However, children over age 11 will pay adult prices.

A reservations center will be set up in Hong Kong next year. Officials expect one-third of visitors will be local residents, one third will come from mainland China and the rest from Southeast Asia.
