      In case you cannot come to see the inauguration of the castle due to coronavirus restrictions on travel. Here is the video:

          Being negative isn’t normally my stance in the forums, but I have to admit that I don’t find the modification to the HKDL castle very attractive or imaginative at all.

          The original castle is still visibly there and it looks like they simply bolted on additional towers (even the construction videos make that plainly obvious) and as a result call it a new castle.

          This is a lazy effort by WDI and IMO, they should have completely tore down the castle and replaced it with something entirely different. I would have been more impressed if they had used an idea that is more reflective of historical Chinese architecture to go along with the theme Iger used for Shanghai: “authentically Disney and distinctly Chinese”.

          Maybe i’m just being picky, but this makes it less likely that i’ll ever make any effort to visit this park.

            Somewhere Aurora is chewing out the company for making her share her Hong Kong residence with the other Princesses The nerve!!!

            It's not like Aurora has others residences in California and Paris. Oh wait.....

              I think the new castle looks great, a big improvement over the old one. Now let's wait and see what the shows will be like.
