    Re: Hong Kong Disneyland Construction

    Wow, construction work is coming along great. The Big Grizzly Mountain is being constructed now as well as the show building for Mystic Manor. And Toy Story Land has its RC Racer track! The joy in this is that RC Racer won't be visible from everywhere in the park unlike its Paris version since its being built on lower ground than the main park.

    Oh nuts...my bad. I really need to get back to HKDL

    Jesus Christ that thing is HUGE, if you can see that from Fantasyland, you can probably see that green army men tower from Tomorrowland!

    You can find the new park map in the Preview Center located on Main Street.

    They need to start planting bamboo all around the park to hide that terrible orange thing. Its one the most vulgar creations of the last ten years in any place of this planet. Perhaps only the fans of WDS love these kind of things. Who knows...

    The new parkmap... uh... I do hope the final version will be changed.

    Mystic Point looks strangly small... like a ride and not a land.

    Many pros for the smallest Disneyland in the world. But just as many cons.

    I don't like the fact that you have to walk THROUGH Toy Story Land... I was hoping it would be off away from the main path if you know what I mean.

    Re: Hong Kong Disneyland Construction

    ^Thanks for all the photos. Hadn't seen many of them (like the details of the Garden of Wonders or Conservatory/Greenhouse). Hopefully the greenhouse scene with attacking venus flytraps returns to MM in some form (may a future enhancement).

    The visual intrusions of Toy Story coaster (and soon the Parachute Drop) are infuriating & frustrating. Frustrating in that TSL was very close to being Glacier Bay, had HK execs not insisted it was too similar to Ocean Park's arctic expansion. It's unfortunate that people who don't "get" theme parks are the ones who had a say in this. There was a time when WDI/TWDC used to float balloons in order to measure and design around visual intrusions from land to land. The operative word in theme park is theme, i.e., theme parks take visitors to another place & time. These kinds of small thematic transgressions (seeing a steel coaster from Fantasyland, having a Parachute drop loom over Mystic Point) add up and work to make the place less compelling for visitors - consciously or subconsciously - and so less worth the premium price.

    Allowing those Toy Story carny elements to be visible from all over the park represents both poor design and poor long-term business leadership. Just asinine.
