    H.K. Disneyland gives journalists a sneak peek

    HONG KONG -- Hong Kong Disneyland gave journalists a sneak peek Wednesday, two months before the newest park opens to the public, showing off an East-meets-West mix of classic thrill rides like Space Mountain and restaurants serving Asian cuisines. The park features a trademark Sleeping Beauty Castle and a Main Street that recreates small-town America. The food is distinctly Asian, catering to the masses of tourists Disney hopes to attract from across the border in mainland China. When the park opens Sept. 12, its eight restaurants -- with 29,000 seats -- will cook up all the major Chinese cuisines, like Cantonese, Shanghainese and northern noodle dishes. Visitors will also be able to dig into Japanese sushi and tempura.

    The place sounds like it's pretty well ready to go!! Maybe they can go ahead & slap down Autopia before opening (whilst there is still time!)

      With so little in the park, they could likely open the place in 48 hours if they had to.

      Interesting how the original opening date of late 2005/early 2006 was so conservative.

      Still looking forward to seeing it though. LOve that new theme park smell!
