    3rd Theme Park at HK?

    The Secretary of Economic Development and Labour recently said that attendance at Hong Kong Disneyland is right on target, the average daily attendance is 15,000. He further mentioned that HK Ocean Park is getting a facelift soon, and expansion for HK Disneyland is on its way.

    The number of tourists for the year 2005 is over 23 million. They are anticipating that there will be 27 million tourists for the year 2006.
    he further added that HK needs to add more attractions, so a 3rd Theme Park is also under consideration.

    I think they need to add more to the first one, before they worry about building 2 and 3.

    Re: 3rd Theme Park at HK?

    Hong Kong Disneyland is highly accessible via trains and other public transport from Hong Kong and the Airport. If they want people to stay on property and eat at the resort in the evenings, they really should build a second park on property. However, Disneyland needs at least 6 more rides (2 more E tickets and 4 or more sub-E attractions) ASAP before they open a new park. An EPCOT inspired park would be nice.

    Actually I believe that there is space earmarked for "Phase 2 expansion" to the right side of HKDL, on the other side of the walkway leading to the ferry terminal. Of course, it's anyone's guess when Phase 2 does start...
    Got this pic from this article at MiceAge.

    Phase II is right across from HKDL...but a phase III never makes sense...if they build it off the side it'd end up cutting off those beautiful ocean views they gave the hotels.

    It is likely that 3rd Theme park is not Disney park.
    I believe the Secretary of Economic Development and Labour was refering to HK which needs a 3rd Park, not HK Disneyland Resort needs a 3rd Park now.

    For the newest zoning plan, they have reserved space for Phase 3(Phase 3 will be sitiuated beside Phase 2) and even Phase 4 (if Disney is interested in turning it into Gate 3 or Gate 4, otherwise the land will be given to other interested parties/companies).
    They can always fill in the bay/ocean for more land....that's the advantage of HKDL over other Disneylands.

    According to the new Zoning Plan for North East Lantau island, there are other areas designated as "Future entertainment/theme park use"

    An EPCOT-inspired park would be cool, but did they not just send out promotional packages for the Hong Kong Disneyland Resort that had concept art of yet another Walt Disney Studios ....? It would be like Walt Disney Studios Paris but even smaller. But imagine if they did build the EPCOT park and they could revamp and return the good old attractions EPCOT, bring elements for WESTCOT, or the Disney Sea project....Another Disney Sea wouldn't be bad as it would be well on the sea

    HKDL also needs a good solid day parade (sorry, their current parade is ok, just not enough for some reason- too lite), and possibly a good nighttime parade- a new version of DEP would be nice- redesigned and new of course.

    Knowing the Hong Kong Development authority, the third park might well be a casino, not owned or operated by Disney.

    This would rile the WDC, but would be *very* popular.

    I don't see a casino being built with Macau being so close and now Singapore is trying to get in on the act.
