A textile manufacturer was left fuming yesterday after his plans to entertain 12 business associates from the mainland fell apart when they were refused admission at the theme park. Dick Tsang bought 13 tickets three days in advance on Disneyland's website at $350 each. They arrived at the park at noon among a crowd of about 200 visitors, only to find that it was already full and that the gates had been closed. Disney staff told them to come back any day within the next six months. 'We are extremely angry and don't see why we can't get in,' said Mr Tsang, who had driven his guests to the theme park. 'I have waited for more than half and hour and there is still not a senior manager who can tell us what we can do, other than a few staff who keep telling us to go home and saying they made an administration mistake. 'I am surprised that such a big multinational corporation made such a bad mistake.' On a two-day visit to the city during the Lunar New Year, Mr Tsang's guests from Dongguan had been planning to spend a day at Disneyland and then a half day shopping before returning home today. Mr Tsang said: 'Disney has not only spoiled our holidays, but also wasted our time. My business partners are spending only two days in Hong Kong, and it is too late to drive to Ocean Park now.' Discouraged by their aborted day out, Mr Tsang and his friends decided to get their ticket costs refunded. 'We don't think we will come back again because time is too precious. And there is a chance we won't get in again, even with valid tickets,' he said. Mr Tsang also complained that he and his friends were then expected to spend another 90 minutes queueing up at the park to receive their refund. Disney staff finally offered to settle the refund at Hong Kong Station, a 40-minute drive from his home in Yuen Long.
