    Aerial pic?

    Alain's article on the Nautilus walkthrough and the pics I've seen of the park have really made me want tosee more of this place. Does anyone have an aerial pic of the resort?

    I have this pic from the grand opening back in 1992

    Wow! From the air..it looks so much bigger than HKDL!! Also we must point out this picture dates from the early 90's before they built Space Mountain and the dreaded WDSP.

    I can recommend the book - I got mine at the resort last year, and it's a great look at the design of one of the most beautiful Disney parks there is.

    Try this recent view of DLP.

    I have a much higher resolution version if anyone would like it, just email me.

    isn't Hong Kong Disneyland the smallest of all Disneylands?

    I was under the impression that Paris was closer in size to WDW's MK and Tokyo Disneyland

    Don't know that about HKDL, but DLP seems tobe apar with MK, but not as huge as TDL is.

    how many acres is TDL? I was under the impression that it was very similar in size to the MK

    either way from what I understand Hong Kong will probably be smaller then the origional Disneyland, which is why they're borrowing stuff like a forced perspective castle and mainstreet, they want the park to seem bigger then it really is (and you can tell from the air that it's small)
