    Well got some bad news for Hong Kong

    The exemption of flight crew and Chinese nationals with so-called 'health codes' from mandatory quarantine/entry ban has cased the recent spike in corona cases, resulting in the change of policy including these mandatory tests for crews and HKDL reclosure (which happened later). For the time...

    Hong Kong Disneyland to open soon- no final date set

    If they are able to react so promptly they won't be in the red after 15 years of operation. The new social distancing measures were just announced by the government at 8pm hkt today and I don't expect an official announcement from the the local Disney management until next morning. Edit:

    Hong Kong Disneyland to open soon- no final date set

    According to local news, HKDL will close from July 15 until further notice. The hotels that are open right now, namely the Disneyland Hotel and the Explorers Lodge, will remain open with adjusted services. Meanwhile Ocean Park will be temporarily closed from July 14-21 and could be extended if...

    HKDL gets new castle, frozen land and marvel land.

    Carrie Lam just confirmed HKDL and Ocean Park will close for at least 7 days starting from July 15. Official announcements will be made by the parks’ management later.

    Heard a rumour saying Ocean Park would close again this week.

    So I went to the park today and found the colours of the castle and the newly painted castle walls warm and inviting compared to the old grey colour scheme. Now just put me in a fridge the heat is deadlier than Covid-19.

    Rumor Tiana’s Place at Walt Disney Studios Park?

    They can share design costs with Anaheim if Disneyland builds one next to Tiana mountain.

    Construction updates and gorgeous views of the resort! Highlights: 1. Construction materials laid out on Avengers E-ticket site 2. Sliding Sleighs seem to have a very short track 3. Snow White Grotto is preserved. I wonder if the area surrounding it will be filled with water to compensate...

    It's not downscaled afaik. What Young said was more prudent cost control is needed (e.g. more efficient manufacture & assembly methods in castle construction) Also, one important thing to note is that a lot of the money in this hkd10.9 bil plan went into the relocation and expansion of boh...

    I think FTF will stay since it's a recent addition. I could see them redeveloping the area (E) encompassing Fantasy Gardens, Clopin's and the nearby woods in the long run. Dotted line includes the Frozen expansion area.

    I really love the colonial atmosphere of the River View Cafe and will be sad to see it go. Tahitian Terrace on the other hand is really just an open space disguised in bamboo walls, Polynesian light fixtures and tiki statues. They can reuse some of the decor should they wish to replace it with a...

    I'm afraid JRC will be the next on the chopping block after Autopia. It is not popular with the locals despite being praised for the unique finale by Disney fans overseas. Not only is the boat dock underwhelming, the ride itself is also ridiculously short. It lacks the tight turns and iconic...

    I think we need to start a petition to make all of HKDL's attraction queues and restaurants air-conditioned. 🤣 The reason why we see so many pictures of an empty HK Main Street is that everyone is inside the shops to stay away from the heat. The shops can get quite crowded even on slow days...

    They can build it next to FEA or simply replace the tacky TSL rides. PATF already has quite a presence in the park so I think it will be very popular with the HK audience. Tiana has her own part in Mickey and the Wondrous Book and Dr Facilier appeared in the different Halloween attractions and...

    The meet and greet facility in Paris is an additional structure located between the prop castle and the FEA ride building. For HK I believe the meet and greet is sharing the building with the sliding sleighs.
