Kingdom of Dreams - Hong Kong Disneyland Banner

The Kingdom of Dreams sign is outdoors, above the entrance to the museum
section of China, now the preview center.

Full-wall mural which greets you when you walk in the door. It's the view you'd see standing on the at the train station looking up Main Street.

Hong Kong Disneyland Hotel

"Disney's Hollywood Hotel -- This 8 story, 600 room hotel possesses an Art Deco architecture style with whimsical Mickey Mouse inspired motifs, an elegant design that captures all the glitz and glamour of Hollywood's Golden Age. Perhaps the most distinctive feature of the resort is an elaborate outdoor courtyard, the centerpiece of which is a piano-shaped pool."

Hong Kong Disneyland Ambassador Costumes
The costumes are specifically those of the Hong Kong Disneyland ambassador,
and that's her picture in the background. The darker costume is more
formal.

"A Pop-Up Park -- This "Fun Map" of Hong Kong's Magic Kingdom is inspired by the very first Disneyland souvenir map, which imagineering legend Sam McKim drew at Walt Disney's request in 1958. On opening day, Hong Kong Disneyland will feature four theme lands, including Main Street U.S.A., Adventureland, Fantasyland and Tomorrowland."

Tarzan's Treehouse

"Tarzan's Treehouse -- Unlike the landlocked original at Disneyland in California, Hong Kong's version of Tarzan's Treehouse occupies a lush island in the middle of a jungle river. Since Hong Kong Disneyland on opening day will not feature a Frontierland - or that land's Rivers of America - Imagineers had to create a new island getaway for kids in place of Tom Sawyer Island. They found their solution in another classic character from American literature - Tarzan."
