    Re: Negotiation for 2nd Theme Park in HKDL Resort

    My guess is that the gates to a second park in Hong Kong opens in about 7 years, around 2018 or 2019.

    ...and my hopes are on a DisneySEA (as if).

    As long as it wont be another WDS.

    TDS would be great, but I highly doubt that the current Disney management would go that way. That park is way too expensive and Disney CEO Robert Iger likes franchises.

    Hopefully the build a proper park and don't make the WDSP mistake again.

    I think they want to set about expanding the whole resort now. This is primarily to get the guests to spend an extra night in Hong Kong.

    The rest of the land directly faces to the sea so I think it can be DisneySEA!!

    The only park that can and must be copied in every resort is the castle-themed park, disneysea is unique, California Adventure is unique, Epcot is unique...
    HKDL's second gate must be something new, different, that attract people to the resort, not a copy of tokyo's gate.

    Suggest everyone who has ideas to write to the HK Gov't. I previously wrote to the Tourism Commission on HKDL expansion suggestions and someone emailed me back that they've forwarded it to Disney. Whether Disney buys our ideas is one thing, but at least we pass it through the HK gov't (which is the majority shareholder) and they have it on record.

    Tourism Commission - Contact Us

    But personally I think a marine-themed second gate is not going to work because Ocean Park is already there. I also support originality and uniqueness so I don't want to see a Hong Kong DisneySea or Hollywood Studios. I personally am developing an original second park idea that I will forward to them... but I'll do it after July 1st when the new gov't is sworn in.

    A new and different DisneySEA, please Disney. Why bother with studio parks? (DCA, DHS and WDS are mostly the same... almost, a bit)

    The only reason they donīt build another DisneySEA is MONEY.

    I bet it will be a Studios Park, just because like Timmy said, they don't have the money to build a new DisneySea.

    Bon Voyage? Are the Subs history? A Disneyland Update, Al Lutz at MiceAge.com

    From MiceAge's Al Lutz today:

    Bob Iger has made public comments about his desire to get the Marvel characters “into the parks”and Bob is convinced the Marvel franchise is too big for just a single ride or even a small land in an existing park.


    It’s no coincidence then that WDI has mocked up a detailed model of an entirely new theme park based solely on Marvel characters and stories, featuring mainly thrill rides and energetic shows aimed at teens and adults. The Marvel park could also be slotted in as a second park at either the Hong Kong or Shanghai resorts sometime in the next decade (or later).
