    Disney's Iger says Hong Kong park is giant step into China

    HONG KONG -- Walt Disney Co. president Robert Iger said Friday that Hong Kong Disneyland is "definitely ready" to open next week and called it a giant step for the company's plans to break into China's huge market. Iger spoke to The Associated Press at the theme park while in the background a singer rehearsed songs from "Mulan" and workers nearby brushed green paint on fences ahead of Monday's scheduled opening. During the past week, Disneyland has given tens of thousands of visitors a sneak peek of the park on outlying Lantau Island, about a 30-minute subway ride from central Hong Kong. The crowds who were allowed to try out the attractions during the "rehearsal days" have complained about long lines at the rides and restaurants. (AP)

    Uhm ... ah ... what else would Iger say? "Sorry, we screwed up again and built a park on the cheap. Only this time it's a beautiful MK in a totally new market and folks want to get in so we have to limit crowds and then there'll only be three hour waits for Winnie the Pooh and 90 minute waits to order fast food. But hey we're adding the Autopia next year and a kid's fountain play and pee zone, so look for exciting new things in the future."
