    Happy Excitement News: HKDL Appoints New Director of Travel Trade Sales

    Ok, it isn't that happy or exciting, but nobody would read this thread if I typed "Hong Kong Disneyland Appoints Samson Woo as Director of Travel Trade Sales", would they?

    It is possible that there will STILL be no readers here.

    ORGOCH: Slow news day, eh, Loomis?

    ORWEN: That's okay. We have days in Morva where hardly anything worth talking about happens.

    ORDDU: Unless, of course, you happen to have a nose for news like myself. I know where to find dirt on all the fair folk in Morva--not that I'd repeat it. I'm too much of a lady.

    What can you expect? The park needs expansion, they haven't anything new except for Small World. And still that ain't enough to keep the park becoming a full day excursion.

    Welcome to the forum, mclubber!

    I would say that the park is at least worth a full day. Especially with 2 stage shows, the parade, the fireworks and PhilharMagic, it will take that long to see everything as well as give all (!) the rides a go. For most, however, it certainly wouldn't be a multi-day trip, which I think would discourage people from staying on property. This is a shame, as the hotels - certainly the Hollywod Hotel where I stayed - are some of the best in the business.

    However, I tend to agree that if you are just wanting to "go the rides", and thrill ones at that, you will find yourself doing the same things four times. After all, we rode Space Mountain and the Tea Cups twice a piece in the first day.

    ORDDU: Well, I suppose it's actually good that there isn't too much news to report for now. With your nice new web-footed site just getting started, you don't want to be over-whelmed with too much news all at once. Just imagine what it will be like at HKDLSource when things really get hopping in a few years. You may find yourself longing for the early days when things were slow and a certain witch had more time for you than she probably will a few years from now.

    ORGOCH: Got that right. Won't be long 'til they'll be cartin' ya off ta the nearest Nursin' Home, sister!
