  • [Pictures] Hong Kong Disneyland Construction

    Not sure if you all have seen these. It shows HKDL as it looked before it opened.

    Nice set of pictures. I wonder how many of these plants are real and how many are fake. It always astounds me that with a bit of plaster and other materials, we could just recreate anything we want.

      Great pictures it also gives you great respect for all the hours of work that did go into building it. Just a shame all those hours working on hard carving everything to make it look like real rock falls and geysers. Sadly though planting all that foilage to creatre a visually stunning Adventureland will go to waste once that monstrosity Toy Story Land gets built behind the Jungle Cruise. Enjoy it while you can folks. Since it won't be long before RC Racer and Toy Soldiers Parachute Jump ruin this landscape for good.

          Most of the plants in the park are real and I think it was planted about 2003. Alot of it semes to come from Thailand.
          The Tarzan tree might not be real

            Great find Timmy, as Malin said, Adventureland will be ruined when you see that ugly green tower bulging out of nowhere. I think WDI don't really give a hoot about HKDL and just went brain dead after conjuring up Mystic Point and Grizzly Trail because they haven't come up with something that original for quite a while.

              Whether Adventureland will be ruined or not remains to be seen. The trees at HKDL have really grown a lot since opening day, so maybe.. they will be tall enough to cover those ugly off-the-shelf rides?
              As for what is real, as far as I know,..only the Tarzan Tree is fake, in addition to some tree props in the Jungle Cruise, like the one holding the zafari group above the rhino?

                Those terrible and no good things some call rides will be visible from every land in the park if they build them on the same level as the rest. They could dig a deep hole and place the entire land in it. It would prevent the park from being totally ruined.

                  Well....TSL, MP, and GG will eventually be a bit lower that the rest of the park since they are behind the berm like IASW which isnt visible from anywhere. It wont make much of an effect but at least the green tower wont look as tall as it is in WDS.

                      I love the photos Great Job!
                      I think HKDL's Adventureland is good theming wise. It actually feels as if you are in a jungle. It just needs more rides thats all.

                          There is land available for an Indy in AL. The area south of Grizzly where Demon Jungle is can be made into an Indy section for AL or an entirely new land itself. But given what we're getting (2 greats and 3 mehs) i think id choose this platter over Indy anytime

                              yes the Mystic Point thing is a tragedy, I could see an Indy attraction in that land if it was imagineered right. The poor layout of HKDL overall is just going to be a bad factor in future expansion opportunities and i HOPE one day TSL will be torn down for a better thing like the Toon Town at MK is being replaced, since its just a group of carnival rides branded with a multi million dollar franchise.
