The Disneyland Resort Line connects Yam O and the Hong Kong Disneyland. It is the world's first metro line designed to service a Disney theme park, and also the world's first driverless heavy transit line. The line was finished in April of 2005 and put into operation on 1 August 2005 in preparation for the opening of Hong Kong Disneyland theme park. The trains of the line are designed with a Disney theme in mind. Bronze statues of well-known Disney characters, such as Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck are included inside of the trains. The windows are shaped like Mickey Mouse's head rather than squares.
This metro Line is as long as 3.8 kilometers (about 2.4 miles) and has a travel time of six minutes. There are only two stations along it: Sunny Bay and Disneyland Resort. Sunny Bay stations serves as an interchange station with the Tung Chung Line between Tsing Yi and Tung Chung stations. It is the first MTR station to have automatic platform gates installed on the edge of the platforms. The other Disneyland Resort station is located in Penny's Bay. It was built to serve the Hong Kong Disneyland and also designed with a Disney theme in mind to match the park. The platform is equipped with automatic platform gates to prevent passengers from accidentally falling onto the track. Sunny Bay station is designed in a futuristic style while Disneyland station is designed in a Victorian style with spacious open areas. All these were intended to create a feeling of time travel for passengers ridding along this line.
In line with ground level and above-ground MTR stations, Sunny Bay and Disneyland Resort Station are not air-conditioned, and rely on their open architecture to keep the temperature low.
