21st March 2021 – (Hong Kong) Yesterday (20th) afternoon, a visitor found a basket with a pet rabbit outside the entrance of Disneyland. The basket also contained a note saying that the rabbit was not lost and the owner was in Disneyland. However, the owner could not place the rabbit under custody nor bring it into Disneyland so the owner left the rabbit at the entrance with a contact number.
Someone took a photo of the pet rabbit and uploaded it to Facebook which immediately aroused heated discussions among netizens.
Hong Kong Disneyland has very clear policies when it comes to animals at their theme park. The official Hong Kong Disneyland website has to say about animals (all animals except service dogs are banned from the park):
Animals (with the exception of service dogs). Service dogs means a guide dog or a dog that is trained to do work or perform tasks for, and to assist, a person with a disability. Service dogs must remain on a leash or in a harness and under the control of the owner at all times. Due to the nature of some attractions, service dogs may not be permitted to ride certain attractions.
While Disney fans were outspoken online after news of the rabbit being left at the park gates spread on social media, Disney has not commented, and it is unclear if the owner was ever reunited with the pet.
Hong Kong Disneyland has gone through multiple closures during the pandemic and has just recently reopened for Guests on February 19, 2021.
Recently, the park debut a brand-new castle as the icon to Hong Kong Disneyland called The Castle of Magical Dreams. You can take a full tour of The Castle of Magical Dreams here.
