    Dan and I are already planning on going to the new Hong Kong resort as soon as it opens. I know it is going to suck, but I really don't care. It is just an excuse to stop in Hong Kong, WHICH I LOVE.

    Anyone heard any interesting news about this park?

    Apparently for Phase 2 of the park they are going to have a really high-spec Pirates of the Carribbean with a Splash Mountail style drop at the end, now that's cool! I still don't get why this park doesn't have a Frontierland! :confused:

      I totally agree. I guess they figure that the Chinese won't understand the American old west. But a super 2.0 version of Pirates would be tres cool. :monkey:

        I'm hoping to be studying abroad at HKU next fall. If so, I really hope some super Disney nerds from the states will come visit and let me know so I'll have a little taste of home.

            Yeah, but the Japanese get it, and Disneyland Paris has a cool, if not slightly more stereotypical, Frontierland. I don't see why Hong Kong doesn't have one! frankly, it's an insult, especially in the same year as the original Disneylands 50th Birthday. No Big Thunder, no Rivers of America, no Splash! Why???

              I think the reason that HKDL doesn't have a Frontierland/Westernland is because China is a communist country and they don't want an area themed to the rebellious American West. *shrugs*

                Im looking foward to see what this new Adventureland is going to be like.From the concept art I've seen it looks very much like Disney's Animal Kingdom.Disney say it will be the largest Adventureland ever built for a Disney Theme park.And I know it will have a Jungle Cruise,Lion King show and Tarzan's tree house situated in the middle of a island.

                Main street will be built to resemble the original including castle.

                Fantasyland looks to be designed after the Magic Kingdom at WDW with zero theming.Not sure about what Fantasy Gardens is going to look like but I do know its a meet & greet area for Disney Chracters.

                Tomorrowland Im not sure about but do know it will include a copy of the new Space Mountain coaster that will be re launching later in the year at Disneyland,and a Buzz Lightyear seeing that no Disneyland park must be without one now days.Heard a rumour about a late edition of Autopia but why would this attraction be built with its high cost I don't know.

                Other rumours I've heard for phase 2 include a Haunted Mansion and Its a Small World.

                  Maybe odd maybe not...about no Frontierland...since the Chinese had such huge part to play in the building of the western US and while it was an incredible contribution...they were treated like animals for the most part.
                  Maybe they would rather not revisit those days.

                  What is really odd to me is that the legend of the Warrior Princess, which is a Chinese staple in Kung-Fu Opera and literature is not being capitolized on.

                  It made a wonderful parade here that's for sure! (our favorite)

                    The reason HKDL might not have a Frontierland amongst other things could simply be because Disney is building parks on the cheap. Does DCA ring a bell? However, I'm sure HKDL will be far worse than DCA considering all the stuff I've read about HKDL and the lack of everything that other parks have that HKDL wont be getting (or at least not until Phase II)..

                      Correct me if Im wrong but isn't the Hong Kong Govement coughing up most of the money for this park anyway?

                        That is true. The government wants the park open before the next olympics. It also seems pretty clear that Disney didn't want to pony up the rest of the money needed to make this a killer park. They have even put out press releases saying that they have don't studies and the Chinese don't like rides. That parks and photo locations are much more important. Read: The park will be pretty, but there will be nothing to do.

                        But much can still change if either the Goverment or Disney suddenly decides that money can be made at this park. Look what happened in Japan. They opened a boring clone of a park (that isn't even laid out well). And then realized how much money can be made when you offer impressive new rides and shows. They NEVER would have spent 3 Billion dollars to build Disney Seas if they hadn't already made a bucket of money off the Magic Kingdom.

                        We'll have to wait for round two to see which direction this park takes.

                            the Japanese got edumicated by us after WWII the Chinese try to censor the internet

                            and yeah the lack of rides in the park is pretty bad but oh well I guess

                            as far as the lack of Splash goes and the new Pirates ride I think it's obvious

                            it'll be pirates built around Splash's layout that way they won't have to build both

                              I have heard that HKDL will go along the lines of Disneyland. Almost everything is going to be the same.
                              I have also heard that Adventureland will be the biggest land in the park, due to its small size in every other park.
