Disneyland Resort is a station on the Hong Kong MTR Disneyland Resort Line. It was built to serve the Hong Kong Disneyland Resort, and is located in Penny's Bay.

The station is designed in a Victorian style, with spacious open areas. It has also been designed with a Disney theme in mind to match the décor of the park. It opened for public use on 1 August 2005. Architecture firm Aedas was the architect for the study of the Disneyland Resort Line and the architect for the Sunny Bay and Disneyland Resort Station.[1] Prior to this date there were Disney buses used to transport people between the Disneyland Resort and Sunny Bay.

This station is the second to have only one platform, after Po Lam station on the Tseung Kwan O Line. The platform is equipped with automatic platform gates to prevent passengers from accidentally falling onto the track. This kind of gate is the first of its kind to be introduced in any of the railway lines in Hong Kong. The length of the current automatic platform gate is as long as a four-car train and can be extended in the future to accommodate a train length of up to eight cars.[2]
