    Hong Kong Disneyland Expansion Progress in 22/08

    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ewVdRXH7ryQ]YouTube - [22/08/2010] ??????????? Hong Kong Disneyland Expansion Progress[/ame]
    Hi everyone, I'm a HKDL fans in Hong Kong. I've just recorded this video when riding on the train, we can see the progress of expansion from this video. Unluckily I don't have a camera which can record HD video, but we can still see things clearly from it.
    And please note that the location tags after Grizzly Gulch appeared may not be accurate.

    Welcome to MC! Thanks for the vid.

    I'm still astounded by the scale of the land their working on. Much bigger than I expected.

    Anyone have any ideas on what that large structure is on the Playland site?

    Thanks for the video and welcome to MC!

    Well there is going to be a merchandise shop (from the D23 model) as well as a future Quick Service Restaurant (also a hint from the model) but given that that building is where RC Racers is going to go...Im not sure...

    That seems huge compared to Paris' Barrel'o'Monkeys store, but then again that is just a glorified ODV cart.

    I am glad that HKDL decided to keep the construction areas easily visible from the train.

    This way we fans won't just have grainy distant pictures, and the average public can also develop a greater awareness for the expansion.

    Thanks for the vid whaleatcoast!

    You can really see where Grizzly Mountain's track is going to go, during the under the bridge segments to and from the station, well.
    I'm so excited for Mystic Point! This definitely intrigues me more than any other ride being built at Disney Parks.
    Looks like TSL's moving along well, lots of progress there.

    Nice. Glad to see it coming along.

    Is that Corey Burton doing the narration for the train's English spiel? "Spared no expense".

    However, normal people ride on the train will not notice there is such a big construction behind them. When I recording the video, I need to put my hand out of the train and turn back to see it, because people are sitting facing Adventureland on the train. I think the train will change after Mystic Point built since there will be a station in Mystic Point. So the train should have exits at two sides.

    Welcome to the forum.

    Thanks for the video.

    I am always fascinated by pictures or videos of the expansion in HKDL.

    Hope those fans in Hong Kong will continue to update us[fans outside HK] on the expansion.

    Will HKDL reroute the railroad around the new created lands or will the new lands outside the train track?

    The new lands as seen in the video will be located outside the track.
    The track is there for good, so all expansion like "it's a small world" and the current one has to complement the existing infrastructure of the park.
