A set of special stamps would be issued to mark the grand opening of Hong Kong Disneyland on September 12, 2005, Hong Kong Postmaster General Allan Chiang announced.

Hong Kong Post will issue a set of four commemorative stamps, a souvenir sheet, a stamp sheet let and a gold-foiled stamp sheet let on September 12.

A Souvenir Pack will also be available, containing a set of the Hong Kong Disneyland stamps issued in 2003 to commemorate the groundbreaking, together with a set of the new Hong Kong Disneyland Grand Opening stamps and a gold-foiled stamp sheet let, Chiang said.

The set of special stamps consists of views of four themed lands familiar to Disney lovers worldwide. The stamps feature Disney`s version of Main Street, USA, the wonders of Fantasyland, an enticing view of Adventure land and the world`s favorite mouse, Mickey of course.

The opening of the Disneyland in Hong Kong is no doubt a reason for Hong Kong people to celebrate, Chiang said. Not only will it bring those who visit it many hours of pleasure, but it will also draw tourism from around the world and provide work for many local people in a broad range of activities from the hospitality industry to the leisure sector.

The stamps and stamp sheet lets are designed by Walt Disney Imagine ring and printed in lithography by Cartor Security Printing, France.
