    That's good. Maybe Disney is finally learning that people won't come to a theme park with only two major attractions (Space and Jungle).

          Agreed. Hopefully the other rumor of the 2 HKDL exclusive areas is related to this. My guess is one Pirates Land though.

            It's the only park without Peter Pan Flight (even though it's a former British colony!).

              ORWEN: It's also the only park without a Snow White dark ride--even though I've heard dwarves are supposed to be well-liked over there.

                    Why do these witches feel the need to put pressure on the government of Hong Kong to invest in a park the witches themselves probably don't plan to go to... that's a better question!

                      ORDDU: Well, dear, let's just say we're sort of like Missionaries--the Mother Teresa's of Disney, to be more exact. You see, no country can be considered truly civilized unless it has a Disney theme park in its midst. Therefore, it's our mission in Life to make sure there's a series of Disney dark rides in every duckling's back yard before the next turn of the Century.

                      ORWEN: Yeah, and if you'd like to have a position as a missionary, too, we'll be ever so glad to help you acquire it!!!

                      ORDDU: Hmmm....a missionary position for CaliforniaAdventurer. I have to admit that's something I'd just LOVE to see.

                            Disney May Raise Stake in Its Hong Kong Theme Park - Bloomberg

                            Disney May Raise Stake in Its Hong Kong Theme Park (Update1)

                            By Le-Min Lim

                            Jan. 21 (Bloomberg) -- Walt Disney Co., the second-largest U.S. media company, may increase its stake in its struggling Hong Kong Disneyland theme park as attendance figures falter.

                            ``We do anticipate an additional investment ourselves,'' said Hong Kong Disneyland's managing director, Bill Ernest, in an interview in Hong Kong today. He didn't elaborate.

                            Disney owns a 43 percent stake in Hong Kong Disneyland with Hong Kong's government, which paid for land reclamation, roads and other supporting works, holding the balance. The theme park in November asked banks to allow it to delay debt repayments amid falling attendances, prompting some lawmakers to claim it wasn't designed to cater for local habits and culture.

                            The Burbank, California-based company isn't in talks on opening a park in Shanghai, Ernest said today.

                            ``We are fully focused on our Hong Kong park,'' he said.

                            The Hong Kong park attracted more than 4 million visitors in its second year of operations, the city's Tourism Commission said in a paper to be discussed by lawmakers. In the 12 months after opening in September 2005, more than 5 million visitors arrived, which was less than forecast.

                            ``We expect to be busier this year than last year,'' Ernest said, declining to specify targets.

                            Hong Kong Disneyland agreed with lenders in November to remove debt covenants to help it focus on attracting more visitors. Disney will forgo royalties.

                            YES!
