      Is the HK number bigger because it includes hotels?

      Sounds like Disney isn't going for bigger and better, as usual...

        As far as I can tell, everything made in China is cheap - cheaply made, cheap ingredients, etc.

                Yay! HKDLR won't be the smallest Disney resort anymore!

                But even though the park is built with small size, if done correctly, they could put lots of rides in it since that is what we want most right? loads of high quality rides? well thats where HKDL fell... and also, SHDL has more land to expand unlike HKDL, which is stuck in a very bad position for further expansion.

                  That's still a lot of acreage. At least enough for a huge Disneyland park and probably enough for 2 parks.

                  I'm curious if there is expansion land put aside for the project as well.

                  Until they release the proposed details and artwork for the park, we won't really know what direction it is taking.

                  I'd like to know the finalized budget. How much is going toward the park and how much toward hotels. I'd like to see the list of attractions, and general layout.

                  I do have a feeling that this will be a bigger and better park that HKDL, but there really isn't any way for us to know just yet. It is still pretty early and we have precious little information.

                  There is still hope!

                    I didnt realize hkdl was stuck in a bad position in terms of future expansion , at the d23 expo they had a master map up of hkdl , and it looked like they quite a few plots of land left for hkdl future expansion beyond the current drive. and they also have a whole new area they could build a second park if needed.

                      Why all this doom and gloom?

                      286 acres is more than enough for one Magic Kingdom park and supporting hotel(s) and other facilities.

                      There will be well in excess of 3 billion USD going into those 286 acres.

                      Also...to those saying everything coming from China is cheap and poor-quality...well that's exactly what people were saying about Japan in the 1950s and 1960s. Then...

                        i do not see that as a small resort area either. Its no WDW but if the land is used properly they could easily build two large gates and a downtown Disney and still have land to spare for backstage infrustructure and c ouple hotels.

                        My guess is that that is the size of the original phase one but they have plenty of land aorund it to continue to grow if necessary.

                          We'll have to see how much real attractions is in the park. That is the meat of the details. Since there is less acreage than HKDL means Disney can't space out the attractions too far apart. Less space = less park capacity. This is what we know so far.

                            I meant HKDL the park, not the resort. If you see in google maps or somewhere, you'll see that HKDL has a very limited amount of new, fresh expansion plots left beyond the the railroad track. most of the northern section is crowded with HKDL's management buildings. I'd say only 2 more mini lands could be made after the proposed lands are built.

                              116 Hectare (or 286 acres) is the approved size for phase 1 of Disney Shanghai only.

                              According to the latest local TV news (HKTVB), the National Development and Reform Commission of China took into consideration that a huge size of Disney Shanghai Resort might cannibalize the attendance at HKDL Resort. In order to ease the worries from people at Hong Kong, Disney Shanghai Resort would start small(even smaller in size than phase 1 of HKDL Resort), and would be gradually expanded in several phases to a final size of 500 Hectares. This arrangement would give some time for HKDL to expand, a win-win situation for both resorts at Hong Kong and Shanghai.

                              If they build only one Park for phase 1 at Shanghai, it is still possible that it could be larger than HKDL (the park) and not the whole resort.
