    HKDL to open 3 New Lands between 2011-2012, Mingpao News

    港迪士尼新設施早2年落成

    【明報專訊】面對上海迪士尼樂園的挑戰,香港迪士尼樂園將全力趕工擴建。身為香港迪士尼樂園董事局政府代表 之一的商務及經濟發展局長劉吳惠蘭表示,本港現時首要的工作,是全速做好迪士尼擴建工程,工程將於年底展開 ,新設施將陸續在兩至三年內落成及逐步開放。

    免撞正上海樂園落成

    劉太說,希望能把握時間,盡快讓市民及旅客享用擴建後的迪士尼樂園設施。中央拍板在上海建全球第6個迪士尼 樂園,樂園首期佔地約100公頃的主題樂園區,預料最快於2014年落成啟用。而港府年中宣布本港迪士尼樂 園3個新擴建主題區,即「野礦山谷」、「迷離莊園」和「反斗奇兵歷奇地帶」時表明,新設施原訂於5年內、即 2014年底前才分階段完成,這個時間表剛好跟上海樂園落成時間撞個正,所以政府跟迪士尼已有默契,要提 早在兩至三年內,即2011至2012年左右,會逐步有新設施落成。

    ^That is great news! Clearly HKDL doesn't want to be compared unfavorably as the "little" or "inferior" park when Shanghai potentially opens in 2014-15.

    It's cheaper to build during a recession and the early opening will let them see how much more growth is needed to achieve success in the HK market.

    The upside of having a competitor in Shanghai is already expressing itself
