    Hong Kong Disneyland new lands announced officially with Artwork


    click photos to enlarge

    This is it, the Hong Kong Disneyland expansion plan has been unveiled, with three "lands." Plans were announced today and you will find great artwork for each of the lands below! Basically, the three new lands are located on the Adventureland side of the park, Just to the west of the Jungle Cruise as you can see on the expansion map above. Contrary to speculation, there will be no giant Pirates of Caribbean land, no snow-covered mountain, but there will be a small Frontierland type of area with a mine ride, a Haunted Mansion with a different theme, and a Toy Story Playland exactly like the one we will have at Paris' Walt Disney Studios next year.

    Also, you will notice that they still have a big space available for a future expansion on the left of the new Frontierland/Grizzly Trail.

    Here are all the details with the official press release and picture in full size in the Disney and more article here:

    And NEW other artwork now on line here:

    With the addition of more than 30 new attractions, play and entertainment experiences, Hong Kong Disneyland’s total number of rides and attractions will increase by almost 50 percent and top one hundred. When completed, the expansion will increase HKDL’s physical footprint by approximately 23 percent; broaden the park’s appeal by adding more experiences for young adults; and place increased focus on universally-understood stories. Using Guest feedback as a guide, these three new themed areas will create memorable guest experiences, drive strong word of mouth and repeat visitation, and offer many unique only-available-in-Hong-Kong attractions that feature Disney’s immersive storytelling and innovative technology.

    Now, to all Disneyland Paris and Walt Disney Studios fans : Have a look again to the Toy Story Playland rendering above as the Toy Story Playland at the WDS will look exactly - or almost - identical when it will open in July 2010!

    As for HKDL this expansion is not only welcome and necessary but also will bring new attractions unique to the park - Big Grizzly Mountain Coaster, with audio-animatronic Bears and a track that seems to be inspired by the one of Expedition Everest - or also new versions of grand classic ride - Mystic Manor - a Haunted Mansion mixed with the world traveler and adventurer theme of TDS Tower of Terror. It will be very interesting to discover all this when it will open in 2011-12!

    And now, more about the financial part of this HKDL expansion as Disney put $452 mln new funds into the theme park. Read more about this in the full article here:

    Wow, this park is in need of this expansion. However I am not a big fan of the Toy Story Land.

      WOAH!!!! This is exciting news!!! Few questions though,
      1. The new Grizzly Mountain Coaster sounds like Expedition Everest.. no?
      2. Toy Story Land is similar to A Bug's Land in the fact that you're shrinking down to the size of a toy.
      3. Mystic Manor is their Haunted Mansion???
      Overall I'm really looking foreward to seeing all of this come to life!!

        The Grizley themed Frontierland and "Mystic" Haunted Mansion are fine, but the Toy Story Land is pathetic and does not belong in a Magic Kingdom park (at least not in this particular area). Perhaps it would work near Fantasyland and Small World. But it just seems so CHEAP for a Disneyland park!!! I sure do hope the Imagineers find a way to kill the Toy Storyland before construction begins.

          I agree. At least make it Toontown so it fits other MK style parks. Also, 30 attractions? I hate when they count Photo ops and water play areas as attractions. At best, unless there are some unannounced attractions in here, we're looking at 5-6, if there are some shows as well.

          And I wonder if the Adventurer Club is a reworking of the PI one. That would get people to HKDL.

            I LOVE the way the Haunted Mansion looks.



            Certainly looks occupied by an eccentric palm reader or voodoo high priestess.

              Agreed. Perhaps when it is finished being built it will be my favorite Haunted Mansion facade. I'm still a little uncertain about the theme of the ride... as far as the music box and such. It reminds me of Tower of Terror at TDS with all the artifacts and such.

                This attraction would fit perfectly around
                Grizzly Peak in California Adventure.

                Even though there is already a mine train
                themed coaster across the esplanade.

                  Or at least give them a chance to develop some new bear AA's for another ride that could certainly use them.
                  The Mickey audience is not made up of people; it has no racial, national, political, religious or social differences or affiliations; the Mickey audience is made up of parts of people, of that deathless, precious, ageless, absolutely primitive remnant of something in every world-wracked human being which makes us play with children’s toys and laugh without self-consciousness at silly things, and sing in bathtubs, and dream and believe that our babies are uniquely beautiful. You know…the Mickey in us.

                    I'm very curious about the Adventurer's Club restaurant. I'm wondering if it will be docorated with the remnants of the Adventurer's Club from Pleasure Island at WDW?

                      There have been rumors that Imagineering came in after the club closed and picked what they wanted. Maybe for both the ride and the restaurant. Wouldn't it be ironic that they build this area of the park with the decorations from the Adventures Club and some day in the future it gets cloned back at WDW?

                        I wonder if the Country Bears will be added to the Grizzly River ride at HKD?

                          I love this!!!!
                          I will admit Toy Story Playland sounds kinda stupid, if it has an unique Midway Mania I can find a way to forgive them. I love the other two lands though!!!
                          OMG I can't wait.
                          Maybe toontown next?
                          or more rides in fantasyland.
                          Perhaps TSL will be like the Alice in Wonderland miniland at DL only much bigger.

                            I personally am a little surprised that they are not opening the Toy Story Land with a copy of TSMM. It seems to me that the reason this project was delayed for so long had to do with money, and although the attraction may still be extremely expensive to build, all the development costs are already covered, and it is a D+ ticket, as opposed to the other two rides they described, which both seem to be C tickets. However, I'm sure that they are saving a place for it in the future. Maybe that is why the land is no moved over more to the right, closer to Fantasyland. That is probably where they would expand into.

                              • Inside Mystic Manor, a trackless ride system enables vehicles to move “freely” about the attraction as the story unfolds.
                              Awesome, this sounds really great. But is Disneyland CA ever going to get a trackless ride system??
