    HKDL and HKOP seek further expansion!

    Hong Kong Disneyland and Ocean Park are preparing for further expansion to cope with increasing visitor numbers, according to a report released by the Hong Kong government on Friday.


    According to the projections in the Assessment Report on Hong Kong's Capacity to Receive Tourists issued at the end of 2013, visitor arrivals will exceed 70 million in 2017, so major tourist attractions will have to seek further expansion to improve their capacity.


    The area of Disneyland has increased about 23% from 22.4 hectares when it first opened to the present 27.5 hectares.


    Although Disneyland's capacity is sufficient to cope with current visitor numbers, it is considering further expansion on the Phase I Site to accommodate more visitors by using the remaining 15.2 hectares of land designated for the future development of the theme park proper and retail, dining and entertainment facilities.


    It is estimated that the capacity of Disneyland will increase in the coming five to eight years upon the completion of a series of expansion plans. The estimated annual attendance will also increase to 11 million, with an average daily attendance of 30,137.


    The Ocean Park, another theme park in Hong Kong, has recorded an average annual increase of 12.6% in the past five years. For 2012-13, visitors to the park exceeded 7.7 million in number, with an average daily attendance of around 21,160.


    The Ocean Park projects its attendance will reach some 8.5 million by 2020 with an average daily attendance of around 23,300, while its maximum capacity will be 36,300 visitors.


    To further enhance its overall appeal and capacity, the Ocean Park will develop the Tai Shue Wan area into a new integrated theme zone, with the main focus on an all-weather indoor and outdoor water park. It is projected that the water park will admit a maximum of 7,000 visitors at one time, with a maximum daily attendance of around 10,500.


    The Finance Committee of the Hong Kong's Legislative Council approved a loan of HK$2.29 billion (US$295 million) in May 2013 to facilitate the early commencement of the Tai Shue Wan Development Project, the project is expected to be completed in the second half of 2017.

    香港迪士尼樂園和海洋公園將大規模擴建
    HKDL and HKOP plan massive expansion

      據新華社1月18日電為應對不斷增加的入境遊客人數,香港兩大旅遊景點——迪士尼樂園和海洋公園將大規 模擴建。
      香港迪士尼樂園已通過早期的擴建,由開業時的22.4公頃,增加約23%至目前的27.5 公頃。


      報告指出,即使樂園容量足以應付當前遊客數目,但為接待持續增加的遊客,迪士尼正研究在現有第一期用地 上,即利用餘下的15.2公頃主題公園、零售、餐飲及娛樂設施用地,作擴建具體方案。


      據估算,迪士尼樂園于未來5至8年完成擴建後,屆時即使每年接待總人次上升至1100萬,即每日平均逾 3萬人次入場。


      至於另一主題樂園海洋公園,園方預計2020年的入場人次會增至約850萬,海洋公園將會在大樹灣發展 全新綜合景區。


      報告指出,全新綜合景區的重點為結合室內及戶外的全天候水上樂園,預計項目可同時容納7000人,而每 日入場人次上限約為1.05萬人次。報告引述海洋公園工作計劃指出,立法會財務委員會已于去年批准政府貸款 22.9億港元予海洋公園擴建,預計項目可于2017年下半年完工。

    HK gov plans to further develop Lantau island (as it is mentioned in latest policy address of CE), it is quite possible and highly likely that plan for the retail and entertainment district in HKDL resort is being taken forward!

    Former Ocean Aquarium will be re-purposed into Shark Aquarium with over 15 species and 100 sharks. It will carry an environmental message like don't eat shark fin soup. It will open in July. (I seriously doubt that great white sharks will be part of the exhibits as depicted in the concept art above.)



    New Koala area at Ocean Park to open near the end of this year. 4 Koalas will arrive at the park this year with a maximum of 8 anticipated.



    New Water Park to open in 2017.



    Ocean Hotel (managed by Marriott) has been re-designed to feature 3 buildings, surrounding a central lake. It will provide 495 rooms. Another two hotels will be calling for bidders soon.

    There will be park-wide Wifi coverage as well, now that's really something no Disney park can manage.

    I wish Ocean Park all the luck in the world. It doesnīt matter how many guests they will have each year, if the park is anything close to what it is today, itīs still going to be a terrible place to visit.

    I want to see a DisneySea next to Disneyland!

    On 24 February, there will be an update from the Economic Development Bureau about Hong Kong Disneyland's operation in 2012-13.

    That probably means a report on attendance and profits/loss.

    In the first quarter of 2014 also there will be an announcement on the third hotel from the Economic Development Bureau.
