    Walt Disney Co is in the process of negotiating with HK Gov for the Expansion of HKDL

    香港迪士尼樂園的確太小了,不能不擴建,美國迪士尼公司總部正在與香港特區政府談判擴建的條件 。

     有趣的是,在談判擴建的同時,市面傳出迪士尼公司將在新加坡建另一個樂園,連地點都已經選好了,那是新加 坡的一塊填海地。這幅土地已經填好20多年,長期丟空,沒有任何發展計劃,丟空期比香港的西九龍填海地更長 。西九龍填海地丟空10年,香港人就已經覺得浪費,因此,很自然地相信,新加坡政府會急著為這幅土地尋找用 途,會輕易地答應迪士尼公司,以優厚的條件邀請在那裡建樂園。
     我認為,所謂到新加坡建樂園應該只是迪士尼公司與香港特區政府談判擴建的策略罷了。新加坡常年皆夏,天氣 炎熱,根本不適合建迪士尼樂園這樣的大型主題公園。今日的新加坡,根本就沒有任何大型的主題公園,新加坡最 受旅客歡迎的夜間動物園只在夜間開放。只有夜間,天氣涼爽,才適合遊主題公園。美國環球片場也想到新加坡建 度假村,但必須是一家有賭場的度假村,不獲賭牌,環球片場也沒興趣到新加坡。
     前一陣子,也傳出迪士尼樂園要到上海浦東建樂園,相信也是另一個自己發出來的「新聞」。  我支持香港迪士尼樂園擴建,但迪士尼公司高層不應該用到新加坡、到上海建樂園來威脅港府官員,以提高自己 的談判籌碼。香港迪士尼樂園擴建是雙贏的事,相信港府與迪士尼公司都會認真的尋求一個對大家都有利的合作方 案.

    According to wenweipo, The Walt Disney Co is in the process of negotiating with HK Government for the Expansion of HKDL.

    During the negotiation process, rumor about singapore pursuing a Theme Park with Disney surfaced. This might be used as a bargining tool for Disney to negotiate with the HK Government. Although Universal Studio would like to setup a theme park in Singapore, but this is under the condition that their partner Genting is successful upon the bid for the 2nd Casino license. If Genting fails in the bid for the last Casino License, it is very unlikely that Universal Studio is interested in Singapore anymore.

    Lets hope that the Walt Disney Co and HK Gov could reach an ideal agreement that is beneficial to both parties. a win-win situation for both.

    Actually I will suggest the HK Govt to do a Tokyo: buy out Disney, then operate the entire area under a Disney license. After that what we build and how we manage is entirely up to us. We could build the biggest park with all the best bits. (If possible, make sure the license is exclusive for China. It will be expensive but it will kick the Shanghai rumour into orbit.)

    First thing is to build a Tower of Terror!

    They better be negotiating something. It's crying for expansion at this point.

    Disney will never fully sell out their parks again. They've been hitting themselves ever since they found how well TDL has done. Let's hope the negotiations pull through.

    Disney needs to also realize that none of the money that Tokyo Disneyland brings in would be there if they were running the show.

    From another thread:
    "The Tokyo Disney Resort and every Disney Store in Japan is wholly owned and operated by Oriental Land Company (OLC). The Oriental Land Company leases the rights to the Disney name and characters, is contractually obliged to operate the "Disney way", and Walt Disney Imagineering has the exclusive contract for the parks and attractions. The Oriental Land Company also owns several other companies, some which help to operate the Tokyo Disney Resort.

    Disneyland Resort Paris is also not owned wholly by the Walt Disney Company. The Resort is owned by Euro Disney S.C.A., a publicly traded corporation that the Walt Disney Company own 39.8%, the majority share, Prince Alwaleeb of Saudi Arabia owns 10% and the rest is minority interests. The structure of the corporation essentially makes it apart of Parks and Resorts, but Euro Disney SCA also created Val d'Europe, a shopping and living center near the Resort. While I have found no conclusive evidence to support this claim, I have seen mention that the Walt Disney Company directly owns no stock in Euro Disney SCA, but instead through a wholly owned subsidiary based the Netherlands.

    Hong Kong Disneyland is a joint venture between the Walt Disney Company and the government of Hong Kong."

    Is "Disneyland" In California owned all by Disney? I sure hope it is!

    If we want to get technical, I don't think either is owned by the Walt Disney Company. They're companies wholly within a company, but that's more of a tax thing anyways.

    ORWEN: Well, I guess it's sort of like where we live, then. I mean, us Cauldron girls live in Morva. But, then, Morva is in the Land of Prydain and the whole place is being mismanaged by the Horned King--who's biggest influence is Osama Bin Ladin--or George Bush--or Rush Limbaugh? Well, it's one of those 3--if not ALL 3!!

    That's impossible to say for sure.

    I hope the two sides can agree to making some big plans for HKDL's developments. It desperately needs it. The quality is there but the quantity simply isn't enough.

    To my mind, 2 REAL gates plus 1 water park plus Downtown Disney and maybe 3 to 4 hotels will be great!!

    My colleague went there yesterday and said it was so full he could not get into many of the attractions.

    Well yes, but wholly owned by Disney makes me say "Disney owns them". Lol.
