Disneyland could turn into 'wax-burning land' as revellers celebrate the Mid-Autumn Festival, because of a lack of government intervention or clear regulations against the act, a legislator has warned. Wong Kwok-hing, who represents the labour sector, condemned officials for doing nothing to prohibit wax burning in the public area outside Disneyland station and the theme park's Inspiration Lake. He said the explanation that the areas were under the control of Disneyland just exposed the government's weakness. 'Disneyland seems to have turned into the Special Administrative Region of the Americans. If there is any fire-related injury, both Disneyland and the government have to take the full responsibility,' he said. Under the Pleasure Grounds Regulation, melting or burning wax, or sprinkling or pouring liquid onto hot wax at venues monitored by the department, is prohibited. An offender is liable to a maximum fine of $2,000 and 14 days' jail. But the Leisure and Cultural Services Department and the Food and Environmental Hygiene Department said the two Disneyland spots were outside their jurisdiction. Different authorities gave unclear instructions as to the legality of wax burning in those areas yesterday. Police divisional commander for Lantau North Bill Fong Chiu-shun said yesterday people burning wax in public areas outside the theme park would be asked to stop. A Disneyland spokesman, Alan Kwok, stressed that burning candles on the premises was prohibited. However, he said the theme park would be more understanding of guests' desire to enjoy the festivities.
