HONG KONG, Jan 10 (AP) -- Bill Ernest has been promoted to executive vice president and managing director of the Hong Kong Disneyland Resort, the company said Tuesday.

Ernest, a 12-year Disney veteran, replaces Don Robinson, who's leaving the company to be president of the Baha Mar Resorts in Nassau, Bahamas, a Disney statement said.

Ernest has been managing director of operations at the Hong Kong park. He helped launch the Disney Cruise Line in Florida in 1998 before transferring to Hong Kong.

He had also managed resort operations at Walt Disney World in Florida and other Disney resorts since he joined the company in 1994.

Hong Kong Disneyland, which opened last September, is a joint venture between The Walt Disney Co. and the local government.
