    1. Probably sometime in March.
    2. That just some guy who made a comment on facebook or instagram or twitter. It is nothing. The land that HKDS occupies is for tourism/commercial use not for housing use. They can't do it. No one will want to live there anyway given the high transport costs.

      Ah okay that is a relief. It was published as an op-ed on SCMP as well... which has been calling for Disney's closure as early as 2005. That newspaper has never been kind on HKDL.

        I just read that article, the arguments are so weak it cannot even stand. Hong Kong does have a big housing shortage but the Disney site is not the solution. There are much more valuable sites that are used as parks right now and they cost a lot of money to maintain, too. Zoological and Botanical Garden and Hong Kong Park come quickly to mind. Then of course Ocean Park lost even more money than Disney last year. If you shut all the money losing parks in Hong Kong then you will have no parks at all.

        The legislators yesterday were not even arguing about the extra funding, they just said WDC is taking too much royalties and trademark money, even when the park is losing money. They want WDC to take less when the park is losing money.

        I think they understand the need for the park to expand for the good of the tourism industry. They also understand it is not every city, or even every Disney park, that gets WDC to inject millions in a park for expansion. They just feel that when the park is at a low, WDC should ride with Hong Kong as well.
