Day 5
阅读下面的材料,并根据内容选择最佳选项。



Disneyland calls itself the happiest place in the world, but to keep visitors happy in its five locations across the globe, each theme park is adjusted to cater to local cultures and tastes. Outside of the two original resort areas in the US, Disneyland in California and Walt Disney World in Florida, the Disneylands in Paris, Tokyo and Hong Kong offer subtly different layouts to make their millions of visitors each year feel at home.
Disneyland Paris
After excitedly entering Disneyland Paris, which opened in 1992, visitors are greeted with an arcade (拱廊) that features a small replica (复制品) of the Statue of Liberty – a gift from France to the US in 1886, making it a fitting introduction to Europe’s only instance of this American theme park. The arcade also offers essential cover from the cold and rain that typically hit Paris.
As you venture further into Disneyland Paris, you will see a lot of European visionaries, such as Leonardo da Vinci with the Orbitron attraction, a unique theater show featuring French director and actress Julie Delpy on screen with synchronized live actors, and the character Remy, a French chef rat from the Disney cartoon Ratatouille with an attached restaurant to match the cartoon’s fine-dining kitchen.
Tokyo Disneyland
Opened in 1983, Tokyo Disneyland is the third most visited of any theme park in the world after the two Disney parks in the US. Like Walt Disney World in Florida, Cinderella’s Castle is located at the center of the park, said to have been chosen because the princess’s qualities of duty and a strong work ethic would resonate more deeply in Japanese culture than Sleeping Beauty, whose castle is featured in the center of Disneyland California.
Hong Kong Disneyland
The Hong Kong Disneyland, opened in 2005, incorporates feng shui and traditional Chinese elements into its design to attract tourists from the Chinese mainland.
Feng shui balances the elements of wood, fire, earth, metal and water to create positive energy, and these elements can be seen throughout the theme park. Rocks represent stability and prevent good luck from flowing away, so two gigantic boulders have been placed at the park’s entrance to stop energy from flowing out of the resort. Water stimulates fortune and wealth, and the theme park is full of lakes, ponds and streams – not to mention the large fountain featuring Disney characters placed at the main entrance of the park.

1. From the text, we can conclude that in Disneyland Paris ______.
A. the arcade is a symbol of friendship between France and the US
B. there is a theater that shows the popular Disney cartoon Ratatouille
C. a theater shows famous French characters in great movies in different times
D. the Statue of Liberty replica reflects Disneyland’s status as the latest moment in the historical relationship between France and the US
2. The text discusses how Hong Kong Disneyland ______.
A. is the oldest Disney theme park outside of America
B. has deep connections with traditional Chinese culture
C. has two boulders at the entrance to bring in good luck
D. provides many water-related entertainment activities
3. The main purpose of the text is to ______.
A. offer visitors some money-saving tips for visiting Disneyland theme parks
B. show how Disneyland parks outside of the US are adjusted to local people’s taste
C. show the development of Disneyland theme parks around the world throughout history
D. tell visitors how to enjoy themselves at Disneyland theme parks
