    Any idea what the projection boxes and spot lights are for on Mainstreet? I haven't heard any official news, but it looks like they're preparing to do something similar to Disneyland Forever in which they projection map the whole street. It'd be a neat little expansion on 'Disney In The Stars' if it was.

    Also I think all frequently attending guests have accepted that the bamboo is just part of the themeing for the tree house now. Though I always wondered why it was there in the first place...

      I can't really tell, but are they starting to remove the scaffolding off of Tarzans treehouse or is it still the same?

          ^While I'll reserve judgement until it debuts, I still think that part of Fantasyland is better served by a ride of some kind (maybe another unique dark ride, like one themed to Brave or Tangled or Mulan or something, as long as it's not Frozen). Seems like a prettier Fantasy Gardens IMO but I'm sure it'll be great!

              I hope Fairy Tale Forest is on the same level of quality as other top-tier walkthroughs like the ones at DLP, The Sleeping Beauty Castle Walkthrough, and Fortress Explorations. From the pics so far it looks pretty good, but the Tinkerbell area looks like the same old flowers they used for her old meet and greet. Hopefully the overall package is amazing!

                      Park to mark 10 years with fairy-tale fun

                      Wednesday, December 09, 2015

                      Visitors to Hong Kong Disneyland will be able to see re-enactments of the fairy tales they heard as children this month.
                      As part of its 10th anniversary celebrations the theme park will open a Fairy Tale Forest in which the much- loved tales of Tangled, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Beauty and the Beast, Cinderella and The Little Mermaid will be brought to life.

                      The result of two years of collaboration with Disney's creative team in the United States, the theme park's latest attraction includes six whimsical gardens recreating iconic scenes from the princess stories.

                      "The Fairy Tale Forest has been designed only for Hong Kong Disneyland," said Kelly Willis, the park's creative development director.

                      The park's spokeswoman, however, declined to say how much it cost, although it is sponsored by jewelry retailer Pandora on a 10-year contract.

                      Pandora has been cooperating with Disney in the United States and wants to further develop in Hong Kong, she said.

                      Each garden has three basic elements: a photo frame, music box and an interactive story book that activates vibrant miniature castles, towers and mountains.

                      First stop is the Garden of Tangled, where Rapunzel's Tower stands in front of a cliff with a waterfall cascading down its face. Visitors can activate the bronze crank on the storybook pedestal and the tower will open for Rapunzel to hoist up her long sparkling braid with lovable rogue Flynn Rider, her love interest, tangled up in it.

                      A photo frame is placed in each garden, to help visitors take better shots.

                      The Fairy Tale Forest will open to the public on December 17.

                      The theme park is also offering a Christmas special for Hong Kong residents who can enjoy four standard tickets at HK$1,616 until January 3, while the general one- day admission ticket for residents is HK$499. YUPINA NG

                            Space Mountain, UFO Zone and Stitch Encounter will all be closed for "updates" soon. Most likely all will receive Star Wars theme.

                            Tomorrowland will become a mini Star Wars Land soon.

                              Do you know how long they're closing for?

                              I'll be there in September, and that's going to suck if Space Mountain is closed.
