I'm so agreeable. Not fickle. I guess conflicted as well.
Definitely excited about Danny Elfman onboard for Mystic Manor. That was a huge surprise. Again, hopefully a nod to Grim Grinning Ghosts would be the cherry on top.
They're stepping up and they should because apart from hopefully seeing the Halloween (easily from what I see, HKDL's best experience), I'm more looking forward to the expansions in OP that are supposed to open this year. I loved what they did with the pandas. Slightly OT, but that's the competition.
I hope to get the same thrill and envy I feel when I see the LM ride in DCA progress as we inch towards Grizzly Gulch.
I'm definitely happy that HKDL is growing. But I feel more than little jealous that our little Disney park that could, could really do more. Maybe not TDL level of having nearly the best of everything. But it's a step in the right direction nonetheless.
I partly wish that the fairy godmother or the three good fairies would just wave their magic wands and finish up the work much quickly. Or have a musical number whisk the time away. But waiting is part of the fun.
ORGOCH: Wouldja settle fer 3 old hags recitin' encantations ev'ry day ta make things go faster over there?
ORWEN: (Gasp!) You know our magic doesn't work that way, old biddy! We're not allowed to cast ANY kind of spells for the benefit of the REAL world. And watch out who you call a 'hag'! You may be one but I'm not!!
ORGOCH: Just be glad I didn't call ya somethin' WORSE, ya old saggy baggy nag!!!
(Sounds of smackings and whackings followed by moans and groans...)
ORDDU: Well, Adventureland may not have more than one ride, thus far, but it has a total of 3 attractions at least. I know that's not much to crow about but it helps to round out the roster just a little bit.
ORGOCH: Yeah, a REAL little bit! They ain't even really finished buildin' the puny little park, yet, an' until they does I ain't 'bout ta waste a broom stick ride over ta Ping Pong Dizzyland!
ORWEN: I wonder how the guests over there would feel about us offering to give them a broomstick flight over Hong Kong? We could call it Soarin' over Hong Kong!!
ORGOCH: With a broomstick like yers we'd have ta call in 'Snorin' over Ping Pong' 'cause yer broken down toothpick ain't been workin' right in years!! It cain't begin ta pick yer fat butt off the ground and the poor, worn out splinter that's left ain't 'bout ta lift up nobody else!
(More sounds of smackings and whackings followed by more moans and groans.)
Now and then some guys in here claim that rides like Toad and Peoplemover would the park a favour... just like now I totally disagree.
Out with the old! bring HKDL to life!
Should it be a park that targets sage Disney buffs? Or the general public? No clear answer naturally.
There really isn't much for US/European/Japanse fans to travel over here. But I feel the core issue is that there isn't much for the locals to return to.
MM & GG are great because they address both needs. New stuff for everyone, but still rooted in old favorites to get the Disneyland feel. In an ideal world, we'll get all the new stuff.
But we're not TDL. We're not even, to use the dated term, Euro Disney.
I won't complain in HKDL comes to life the way Timmy envisions it, because that will be indeed awesome.
I hope to god Mystic Manor or Big Grizzly Mountain don't make it to the US, Paris or Tokyo. It's not like they need anything more at all save for Walt Disney Studios Paris. I hope these rides remain in HK along with anything else HKDL makes in the future so that HKDL has its own attraction for people.
Dumbo, Teacup, obitron, and Cinderella carousel are traditional attraction and it can find somewhere in other theme park.
HKDL needs some rides to attract more customers. It does not mean that HKDL need to have special rides like mystic manor or grizzy trail. Just some traditional rides like Disneyland and Magic Kingdom did. Haunted Mansion, Pirate, Peterpan's flight, Snowwhite adventure,... are enough... Since they opened Disneyland Paris, it included all these attractions....
Actually I hope to see a few rides in HKDL featuring Marvel characters like Spider-Man, Iron Man and X-Men or even the upcoming Avengers. These are popular franchises, movies are being made about them still and they will attract lots of guests.

Towards the very end of the video theres a view of the Grizzly Gulch area from the Treehouse and the mountain does look quite big.
ORWEN: Thank you again, HKDLFAN, duckling. We enjoy these updates.
ORGOCH: Yeah. Looks like they's ahead a schedule with some things. Befer ya knows it, yer all gonna' be screamin' like little girls on that Grizzly mine train ride. Cain't wait ta hear that!
ORDDU: In the meantime, we can hardly wait to learn what's next for further expansion of Hong Kong Disneyland. A witch would think a Star Tours attraction would fit neatly into their Tomorrowland.
Big Grizzly Mine Train looks like it will be phenomenal. Very excited for it! And I'm sure we'll hear more about the new additions at the D23 Expo
