    ORWEN: The little furry money reminds me of Abu. I wonder if this means Abu will get more attention at HKDL the same way Kenai and Koda got when Grizzly Gulch opened.

    Just incredible. The fluidity of the Albert AA is quite something, and I hope he becomes quite the little star for the park.

    One question.. does anyone know if its all in English? I heard one of the Chinese dialects in the song but Lord Henry only speaks in English.

    And while I sat watching this new video and being astounded by the clever use of this new tech I found myself thinking; "What would Walt have made of this?" he loved new technological advancements, can you imagine what he'd have thought of all of this?

    Luckily I had a chance to visit Mystic Point yesterday. I don't know are these spoilers but please don't read if you don't want to break magic.





    Please highlight the words below
    The environment outside Mystic Manor is great, and the ride is amazing. I love the scene of the Mediterranean stone portrait and also Medusa, and the singing armor part was funny too. Sound effect and music also gave me surprise, there are trilingual lyrics and different rooms sound like there are different lyrics matching the theme.

    Here is a line in Cantonese, sorry that I can't here the English lyrics.

    如今魔法變天地 來吧雙眼不要閉起
    (Now the magic changes the world/ Come on, don't close your eyes)

    Albert and Lord Henry Mystic look a little bit cartoon but still acceptable. The queuing area are filled with pictures which tell us how Lord Mystic found his collections. Of course, there is a portrait of The Society of Explorers and Adventurers(S.E.A.), Harrison Hightower also appeared in the portrait.


    Anyway, it is worth to come visit Hong Kong Disneyland only for this ride.

    I ran into Garner Holt tonight who was in charge of all the AA's for this ride. A LOT of love went into the creation of Mystic Manor, and it shows.

    Another video showing the beautifully themed queue area....



    plus the Pre-Show and more.....




    the following is the official press release from HKDL

    One-of-a-kind themed area Mystic Point opens at Hong Kong Disneyland on May 17 Immersive Storytelling Combined with Technology bring a truly mysterious adventure to Guests


    (April 21, 2013 – Hong Kong) Mystic Point, the final chapter of Hong Kong Disneyland’s current expansion project, will officially open on May 17, 2013. Rich in storytelling, Mystic Manor, an all-new, original attraction within Mystic Point, is home to brand new characters, special effects and architecture, each of which seamlessly blends with technology designed to transport guests into a strange and fantastic universe beyond their imaginations.

    The story of Mystic Point follows the adventures of eccentric explorer and art collector Lord Henry Mystic, who invites Guests to board the Mystic Magneto-Electric Carriage for a tour of his private museum located within his Victorian manor house. When Lord Henry’s companion monkey Albert mischievously opens a newly acquired magical music box, the enchanted Music Dust inside is released and, a mysterious journey begins.

    This final chapter of the current expansion project is comprised of the iconic Mystic Manor, which features one of the most sophisticated systems ever built by Disney, a themed photo area called Garden of Wonders, a new restaurant and a merchandise shop, each of which plays an important role in creating a fully immersive experience within Hong Kong Disneyland.

    Mark Schirmer, Creative Director, Walt Disney Imagineering (Hong Kong) said, “Mystic Manor is a brand new concept with new characters, special effects and architecture that no Guest has ever seen before in any of the Disney Parks worldwide. From illustrators, model-makers and painters, to special effects, ride design and landscaping, the whole team came together to bring the mysterious story to life for Guests. We also created the fun and identifiable looks for Lord Henry and his companion monkey Albert, which I know Guests are going to love.”

    The opening operation team started the testing and training since last year to ensure smooth operation for the opening of Mystic Point. Launching after the popular Toy Story Land and Grizzly Gulch, Mystic Point will continue to bring even more entertainment and exciting experiences to Guests

    Utilizes special effects to create an immersive adventure of theatrical wonders
    The Mystic Magneto-Electric Carriage inside the Mystic Manor is the first trackless ride that applies radio-frequency identification (RFID) technology ever built by Disney. Four carriages depart at a time, following Albert to explore Mystic Manor. When Albert opens a newly arrived artifact – a beautifully carved wooden music box reputed to possess strange powers – he is amazed to discover an enchanting tune flowing from the open box, along with a ribbon of mystical energy. Whatever this ribbon touches – artifacts, statues or paintings – the object springs to life.


    Guests in every vehicle will get a front-row seat experience of the 40 visual effects created by different technologies and 36 projectors, including four ultra-high-definition (4k) projectors. The trackless Mystic Magneto-Electric Carriage ride can be positioned in any direction at any moment, which Guests never know their next way to go. And with the different perspectives of the 4 vehicles, Guests would want to ride it over and over again to get on a highly immersive adventure full of surprises, special effects and theatrical wonders.

    In addition to the sophisticated ride system and special effects, a modern, high-fidelity soundtrack written by Grammy-winning, Emmy-winning and Oscar-nominated composer Danny Elfman supports the action of the story. The soundtrack features a recurring musical theme – the haunting tune of the music box – that weaves its way through the rooms of Mystic Manor as the story progresses.

    Mysterious artifacts present a unique, eye-opening experience
    Mystic Point focuses on immersing Guests in the story with its detailed design. There are more than 7,000 artifacts throughout the themed land. In the Garden of Wonders, several ancient sculptures and mosaics with unbelievable 3D illusions are displayed. Guests must view them from particular angles to unlock their mysteries, which offer the most bewildering and mystifying photo-taking experiences!

    As vast as Lord Henry’s collection is, precious artifacts from different historical backgrounds are temporarily stored at the Mystic Point Freight Depot, where Lord Henry’s grandnephews share stories with Guests from their adventures with Lord Henry. They have also invited friends they have met along the way to join them, and cultural ambassadors appear in traditional Native American, Egyptian, Bulgarian, Indian and Mexican attire, further enhancing the exotic international flavor of Mystic Point.

    Enjoy international cuisines in exotic surroundings
    After visiting Mystic Manor, Guests can dine in the Explorer’s Club Restaurant – a 500-seat restaurant celebrating the globetrotting exploits of Lord Henry and the Society of Explorers and Adventurers (S.E.A.). The restaurant has five themed dining areas where Guests are invited to dine in rooms that reflect cultures and styles of exotic locations, including Egypt, Russia, Morocco, India and China. A diverse range of cuisines with popular dishes from Indonesia, Japan, Korea and Southeast Asia are served, including dishes which are making their first appearances in the Park, such as Korean Ginseng Chicken Soup, Sautéed Rice Cake with Cabbage and Korean Chili Sauce, Shabu Shabu with Mixed Vegetables, and more. To add even more wonder to this mysterious adventure, don’t miss the newly introduced special beverage Blueberry Myst.

    For Guests who wish to purchase Mystic Point-themed collectibles or other limited edition merchandise from Disney Parks around the world, a visit to The Archive Shop is a must. There are over 140 items along four main themes: Mystic Manor, Mickey Family Adventure at Mystic Manor, Disney Parks Around the World and Theme Specific for Guests to bring home as souvenirs of their extraordinary journey.


    Hong Kong Disneyland is ready to bring Guests on an eye-opening journey on May 17. Are you ready to embark on this mysterious adventure?

    WOW, More than 7,000 artifacts throughout the themed land!

    So good it made me cry. Very creative and original for once. Just wish it would happened at the original Magic Kingdom, I mean, this is the best I've seen from WDI in a very long time.
