    I just wanna know when they will start making the new lands?

    Does the hong kong government granted hong kong disneyland a permission to start constructing the new lands?

    Does there are any news that hong kong disneyland will start the construction of new lands?

    I just want to know, coz I'm excited about the new plans for hong kong disneyland?

    We'll have to wait until we hear official announcement from Disney. Then we know the project has been approved. I suspect only prep-work for the expansion is occuring nothing else.

    In Today's HK 2009-2010 budget:

    We are actively discussing with The Walt Disney Company the expansion of Hong Kong Disneyland and any capital realignment of the joint-venture company involved. We hope that agreement will soon be reached on a proposal that will both make Hong Kong Disneyland more attractive as well as serve the overall interests of Hong Kong.

    You have been 'actively discussing' HKDl's expansion plans for years. It does not take this long to just say YES or NO. All the gov't has to do is YES or NO. Simple as that. How hard can it be?

    Re: when will HKDL start construction of new lands?

    youre right hkdlfan..
    I am thinking that the walt disney company is having a tough condition with the hong kong government.
    This is another question..

    While building the parks, why they cut budget?
    the one who cut the budget for bui;ding the park is the walt disney company or the hong kong government?

    Maybe wait until Shanghai Disneyland gets built up first see if they cannabalize the HKDL marketshare. If it is effective it will probably get the govt to rethink their strategy pump more money into the park.

    You know how those bureaucrats love their red tape.

    Well I no next to nothing about the day to day politics in the SAR but it does concern me that they're dragging their heels so much on this.

    They just want instant Disneyland that can break even in 3 minutes!

    Instead, many of the hong kong politicians believe that the expansion is under construction. Some of them even think that letting Hong Kong Disneyland to expand is a wastage of money. As they believe Disneyland has been out dated and HKDL will be defeated by Ocean Park eventually.

    When HKDL is like TDL (just as big, and just as good), TDL will be in space.

    Re: when will HKDL start construction of new lands?

    They are just too worried about their political future. Tung Chee-Hwa was the man who orchestrated the idea of a Disneyland in HK and he is gone.

    Some of the legislators want more control and say in how the park is going to be developed. They feel, I suppose quite rightly, that what HKDL has now are the exact same rides that you can find in other DLs or even other theme parks. They demand something new and something different that is unique for HK which I think is fair.

    Also, they are worried about Shanghai DL, which promises to be bigger and better. If SDL is indeed bigger and better, then why spend on HKDL now? Why not give it up altogether?

    I think we may know more when the plans of SDL becomes clear.

    it semes only the hardcore disney dans want the oldstyle grandmother rides. if they would have put up a state of the art park that would have costed more they would have made more money in time since the fact is that it would draw the real crowds.
    once again. look at the pooh ride in tokyo. it愀 just a traditional darkride... but made in a new way that makes the crowds gather like crazy.

    if I hade a suit I悲 say replace all rides at hkdl! and make the place a place where dreams come true and not where people dream of something to do.
