    Re: Space Mountain and Pooh HK

    Oh God Timmy!! The pandas are cute but you can go see them at other places close to home as well. But I tell you what.. I will go with your to HKDL If I happen to be there. Katsmom would probably also enjoy coming out to meet you.. and even hkdlfan would probably enjoy meeting as well.

    Disney thought they were in for smooth sailing after the success of TDL. No one in my school either likes or goes to HKDL as much as i do. even when i try to start a discussion on HKDL the other just nod away and pretend to be interested. They all say every Disney park is for kiddies. HKDL has had a bad influence on HK people. They dont believe me when i say TDL and TDS are not just for kiddies or that WDW, DLP and DLR are all ages orientated. grrrrrr it's so annoying to defend HKDL!
    Then Don't. Disney is not doing a good job at that so why should we? But the problem is.. most people and not just those in HK, do not get that the Disney experience is not just about the rides and shows.. but also about the themes and atmospheres of the park. That is what has always set the DL parks apart from the pack. Anyone who thinks that DL parks are for kids is a total ignorant idiot about Disney.. Sadly, some of the management at Disney parks think that way, reason why the parks's offering have deteriorated some.
    My take on this is simple.. but not necesarily true.. The WDC has been demoralized by the failure of EuroDisney, to the point of being extremely cautious in whatever they do in regards to theme parks. HKDL is a victim of that "do it cheap cheap cheap!" mentality from the Eisner years. If Iger does go ahead with Shanghai (and I hope not because that will be the last nail in HKDL's couffin me thinks) and builds a nice park there, it could signify the turning of the stone so to speak.. Personally I rather see them invest in HKDL than throw their resources again into another DL park.

          Shanghai, in my opinion, just needs to be as Magic Kingdom as Hong Kong is to Disneyland. Shanghai gets the wider market but Hong Kong gets the overall better park. If those 3 rumored lands are true, I think this is easy to achieve.

          As far as Orlando, I agree. Same with Walt Disney Studios. My view on that park is totally different then DCA's problem. I honestly think that the only thing to make it better is a new entrance. That is it, the rest of their ideas are fine but either way it will be a mediocer park. Just add a new entrance and install the Ratatouille ride. Then move on to the 3rd park and make it a better version of WDW in Europe.

          Tokyo Disneyland Resort is fine.

          Disneyland Resort is headed in the right direction but DCA needs phase 2 with a revamp of the stupid Hollywood Pictures Backlot into a much more classy Hollywoodland and the retheme of the farming area with limiting Bugsland to Flick's Fun Farm. The farming area would be GREAT for a San Francisco area with a similar style to the coziness of New Orleans Square.

          Hong Kong needs atleast 2 more, high quality, dark rides. Peter Pan is a given and then Snow White or Pinochio, what ever one is fine. Then they need Star Tours to appeal to the older audiences, preferably Star Tours 2.0. Adventureland needs a suped up version of the Enchanted Tiki Room with all star effects and 0 characters. Then it needs the Wilderness area with a mine shaft, Expedition Everest style roller coaster. Inside that mountain would be an indoor artic enviorment with a train ride with polar bears and other animals, as well as a small snow slope that would be like a playground for younger ones. Then the adventure area with a over the top Haunted Mansion and Pirates Splash Mountain. In later expansion, TSM into Fantasyland and then Gyser Mountain to Frontierland. Adventureland would draw guest through it being the point where you have to go through to get to the later areas. Then a nice nighttime parade too. I think that if Disneyland Paris gets a new nighttime parade and ships Fantillusion to Hong Kong Disneyland, it would be GREAT.

              We'll see how things turn out in Shanghai...but if they spend as much money on the first Shanghai park as is rumoured to be the case...then it will have the wider market and the better park. HKDL needed those lands yesterday. Just think about how much Walt added to the original DL between 1955 and 1959, and what has happened at HK in the equivalent period...
