    Re: Disney in talks with Singapore

    Disney has already sent the model of the park to the Singapore government to look at it and decide.

    Six Flags is mostly focused on trying to decide if they want to sell or not...

    If Disney's primary interest is in opening new parks else where, rather than expanding HKDL, then HK govt should grant the new land to someone else more focused, maybe someone like Universal Studios or Six Flags.

    Maybe Shrek will be better for us than Mickey.

    I don't know about it being so 'anti - fun' as much as why doesn't Disney focus on PERFECTING what they already have built.

    Whoever mentioned the CM cane swatting thing - that was funny!

    You may well be right. I've never been there, so I'm just reiterating the common American perspective of the place as propagated by the media, which is often far from reliable. Hope I didn't offend anyone, I was just having a bit of fun.

    Yep, he was angry with the Singapore government and told the press that the government was getting in the way and telling him how to build his resort. He got tired of it and walked away.

    Could this happen with Disney, too?

    I saw their concept art for Marina Bay Sands at Singapore as well...but i really don't like it.

    it is like 3 tomb stone sticking up into the air....they said it is like a deck of cards...but actually it looks more like a tomb stone.

    That would be a much shorter list than who has had talks with Disney!

    Just about Every month there's a different Country saying they are in Talks with Disney or Disney are there looking at land for parks,

    That's Thailand not Singapore.

    Anyway, the land provided by Singapore is reportedly even smaller than Disney got in HK.

    I surely hope it doesn't materialize because I can see it taking visitors away from HKDL.

    Actually, I was thinking why must Disney Parks be built on flat land? Why can't they build on small mountains? HK Ocean Park is built on a mountain area, but with escalators and cable cars it works very well. If Disney could build parks on small mountains then they could build a lot more at Penny's Bay without land reclamation.

    That actually wouldn't be such a bad idea to have in DLR... maybe the real talks Disney and Singapore are having relate to importing CM's from Singapore to deal with DLR's used gum issue.

    This will probably go about as well as Singapore's casino plans.

    i.e: Poorly due to excessive government intervention.
