          ORDDU: I thought that covering was always there, actually, but I must be wrong. I do know that HKDL has to build restaurants and attractions with the provision of monsoons in mind. The wind and rain over there can be overwhelming, from what we'vre read.

            Do you guys think it is a cover?
            They really shoehorned this one in.

              ORDDU: That's what my sisters and I expected when we first heard that Hong Kong would be getting a Disneyland park, calvakasc, duckling. But, then, we never really liked that cover over Tokyo's Main Street. Even though it serves a most practical purpose, it detracts from the beauty of their Main Street--in our humble opinions. So we're actually glad that Hong Kong didn't do this same thing with their Main Street. Now it's a matter of making certain, ugly compromises. So, yes, Timmy, Dear, that's what our suspicion is about this cover--that it's being added for weather protection. Isn't there another restaurant further down HKDL's Main Street that also has a similar weather protecting cover?

                That monstrosity was not always there.

                Here are some pics from either 2009 or 2011hotos by Robert TG.

                I didn't take those pics or post them.

                The original shade structure was well themed and actually looked good!

                Hopefully the monster is very temporary. Who thought that would be ok?!

                  I made this video on Mainstreet 2 months ago, just before this... thing appeared:

                  No monster!

                      It's not something for Halloween is it? Don't they have something on Main Street that's temporary?

                          OMG, that's one ugly thing. It completely ruins the look of Main Street.

                          Timmy, where did you read about that thing?

                              I think we have to wait until it's completely finished before passing judgment. If the steel is painted white and some decorative trim is put on it, it will look appropriate to the era.

                              Still, it does look like an elephant shoehorned into a frog's rectum.
                              Born in a shoebox and making the most of it.

                                  It's really sad to see those beautiful buildings being torn down. They were the final works of John Hench. John Hench was responsible for tuning the colours in Main Street U.S.A., Hong Kong Disneyland before he passed away in 2004. This video not only serves as a record of the changing in Hong Kong Disneyland, but also a tribute to the Disney Legend who gave this town a finishing touch with his magical brush.
