    Re: Dalian's "Kingdoms of Discovery", Modelled on Disney Theme Park, the biggest in China

    I think I'll save my money for HKDL.(ha! I actually fooled myself into thinking I could go to HK!) This park looks way too much like an attempt to detract tourists from HKDL. My guess is that lil' HKDL will still pull in more tourists than this cheap knock-off. It does look like a nice park, but calling it china's DL is alot of wishfull thinking and a little rude on china's part considering they already have a DL! Sort of seems to be the Busch park of china, nice looking but nowhere near as "authentic" as DL.
